My brother and I spent a day with our tour guide Dan. We had a brilliant day exploring the wilderness and appreciating the amazing natural surroundings. Our guide was really knowledgeable & we couldnt have had a better time! Highly recommended.

Amazing and thrilling day's absail and climb at Boars Head. Dan and Bridie were brilliant and very supportive. Views were amazing, as you can see the climbing was very high and we didn't anticipate how exposed we would be (didn't read the information closely enough),...More

It's absolutely respectable to be intimidated by Empress Falls - 30 metres abseiling down a waterfall is not a small achievement! Juri (with a "J", pronounced as a "Y") is a great young guide and Simon, whilst a bit older, is new to the team...More
