We arranged our 4 Day Queen Charlotte freedom walk through Marlborough Sounds Adventure Company. I cannot speak highly enough of the proactive and professional service we received. Emails were answered quickly; information was clear and helpful and the staff friendly and obliging. Mother nature did the rest. What a magnificent part of the world and walking is a great way...

We had a fantastic experience doing the 4 day Queen Charlotte Freedom Walk. From start to finish all the staff were super friendly and helpful, overall we felt very well prepared and catered for and wouldn't hesitate to do it all again. Thanks so much.

We came off of a cruise and were looking for more adventure (and lower prices) than the ship's excursions could offer. Bike rentals from the Adventure Company was the ideal solution for us. We've rented bikes for similar purposes all over the world and I'm fairly certain that this place had the best quality bikes. They were really in top... More

We booked a 3D/2N kayak adventure with these guys, staying at Lochmara Lodge (see separate review). Three things: 1. These guys freaking nailed it. Easy to deal with, quick to answer questions. Good gear (water proof jackets, dry bags, kayak skirts, well maintained equipment. 2. They went over and above. Our guide Harry was a salty sea-kayak guru who educated... More

We started with a guided kayak across the sound to Lochmara Lodge. Even though it was a bit of a rainy day, it was very enjoyable. The stay at Lochmara was great -- best dinner of our 3-week stay in NZ. And the tubs were very welcome after a full day of paddling. Hiked out the next day on the... More

Just walked the Queen Charlotte track, this company was professionail, helpful and flexible. The whole experience was wonderful ,and when bad weather forced us to change plans it was done with ease. The briefing before leaving was very through. Staff pleasant.

Our trip started with a guided tour with Lion who took us out through the busy Picton channel and along Queen Charlotte Sound, leaving us at Lochmara Bay headland where we made our own way up to Lochmara Lodge. Morning tea (day 1) and lunch for both days plus the Lodge were included in the $265 pp. They sent our... More

My husband (65) and I (59) greatly enjoyed our guided walk on the QC track. Marlborough Sounds Adventure Company took care of everything. The accommodations along the way (Furneaux, Ponga, and Portage Bay) were superb. Our luggage was transported daily, so we just carried daypacks with our lunch and water and extra layers. We hiked in early March and the... More

Very lucky with the weather , blue sky's all week. The scenery is spectacular , definitely rate this walk up with the best. Not too hard but definitely need some fitness as some steep hill climbs , beautiful views all along. Recommend the kayaking ..lots of fun and well organised.

Really enjoyed our 14 km paddle in the Kenepuru Sounds with our very experienced guide Harry. Collected green lip mussels which were cooked up for our lunch together with the yummy rolls, cup cakes and slice.
