We had to download the TripAdvisor app just to write this review, but we were that committed to praising Walking Legends. Experienced mountain climbers and trip leaders ourselves, we were impressed with Walking Legends guides Zeb and Chris. They were observant, proactive, experienced, knowledgeable about the territory, generous in their helpfulness, and we've never seen such gourmet meals prepared in... More

This was a fantastic day with great views. It is a long and hard walk. I would advise to go and see. You may feel a bit sore the next day, even if you are quite fit. A definite must while your here but a once in a life-time experience for me

This 12 day hike was the most amazing adventure. We were so well looked after, especially by the wonderful guides. The itinerary covered everything and flowed so well, we were never left at a loose end. The walks, the climbs, the food, the guides, we couldn't have asked for more.

I cannot say enough good things about Walking Legends. The guides were attentive and genuinely good people. They took care of us from start to finish our entire trip. No detail is over looked.

Bjorn our guide was great company. He had good knowledge of the area which we hiked in. The 4 days were good, loved the walk to the Pinnacles. We did spend a lot of time driving in the van because of the distance of home base to the tracks which we walked. The food was very tasty and good variety.... More

Having previously "tramped" the Routeburn Track and Northern Tongariro(11/10) off my own back I thought I would spoil myself for my 6oth and have a guided walk. The Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk was suggested and I eventually booked the trip through Walking Legends. The booking process was easy and very helpful in ensuring all things were planned. I was greeted... More

This is the 2nd hiking trip I've taken with Walking Legends. After my last excellent experience I took the plunge & went for "Bucket List" trip which took us to 3 outstanding hiking venues on the North Island: 4 days on the Coromandel Peninsula, 4 on the Waikaremoana track (one of New Zealand's "great walks") and 3 at Tongariro National...

Did the guided tour cross the Tongariro. WL picked us up as arranged and all timing was great. Unfortunately we must admit that the guide was not the best match for us. I think the age disparity and shape difference can explain it. But the company can be recommended and especially the walk

This was a most awesome walk. The scenery, the walk, the whole ambiance was amazing. What made it one of the best adventures ever was the staff. Sam, raleigh, pere were the best. They made everyone feel comfortable and ensured that all had a great time. If you want to do a walking adventure with a guided group. This is... More
