“The best one day excursion in the King Country – no, the best in NZ”

One of the best excursions I have ever experienced. The organisation was great, the personnel were friendly, engaging, knowledgeable and helpful. The stopovers and refreshments were first class. Highly recommend to anyone with an interest in early NZ history, a love of the outdoors and even a smidgen of a sense of adventure.
