We have just returned home from a great trip with Geoff. Wonderful scenery around the Catlins - has left me a bit nostalgic for Lighthouses! The Whistling Frog was a fun place to stay and then on to Invercargill and the Bluff Oyster Festival. What a fun day with 20,000 oysters to devour heaps of different ways. Has always been... More

Really enjoyed our 2 day tour of Molesworth station to Hanmer Springs and back via Kaikoura. Everything was very well organised, the guides were knowledgeable, driving excellent and our driver was very accommodating to my enthusiasm for taking photographs! We could just relax and drink in the beautiful autumn colours and stunning scenery....we saw so much, but didn't feel we... More

My girlfriend and I went on a two day tour through Molesworth Station and back up to Blenheim via Kaikoura and the coast road. The scenery was absolutely spectacular and our drivers, Matt and Sue, were very knowledgable and full of stories about the long history of the places we visited. The station was closed to the public this late... More

A little different to what I expected - I thought we would venture more into the station. However it was a very exciting tour with a great tour guide (Sue) and two other visitors. We were certainly very pleased we took the tour and can recommend it to everybody. The information pack given as we boarded was excellent and very... More

Our tour was over a period of 7 days and was predominately cycling, with some walking and visits to iconic places of interest in the Nelson/Marlborough region, including some places that are not available to the general public. We were treated to great food and excellent accommodation. Our guides were always on hand to assist and answer any questions. A... More

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2-day Molesworth Station trip, and were looked after wonderfully by Sue, especially as we were the only ones on this trip. Sue was extremely knowledgeable about the history and had interesting information about places of interest all along the way. Our visit to Upcot Station was a real bonus, lovely hosts there. The...

Included some of the most amazing, spectacular scenery in an area steeped with history. We just don't appreciate how much we owe New Zealand's pioneers who weathered gruelling conditions to make this place what it is today. A well thought out tour. Don't be put off by the price. It is worth every cent. Rough travel in places but accommodation,... More

Seeing the hill country farming and the people who work there especially the historic places and buildings. Just take your personal needed items, most of all a camera, and sit up and enjoy the moments. Loved it.
