A spectacular day!

We had a great host in Anuj . He looked after us so well and made sure that we had a great day. The walk to the DevilsPunchbowl was moderately difficult, but well worth it..

Great Tour

Our guide, Anujk, was exceptional. He knew where to stop for our best pics. He didn’t rush us at all and was very knowledgeable. He’s a great asset to the tour company. The views and the hike up to Devil’s Punchbowl were great. Oh, did we mention the views were great. Beautiful area of New Zealand.

Stunningly beautiful and the best guide ever

What a way to spend the day. The train ride is definitely worthwhile with stunning sceneries. But our tour guide was very attentive to our needs, making sure we got good seats to enjoy the views along the way. He picked us up at the train station, took us to all the major outlooks, giving us plenty of time to roam and take pictures in the different sites along the way. His knowledge of the region and of the places visited added to the day. He was attentive to our needs, offering coffee juices along the return journey.
