What do I need to know about the tour?
Yes – bookings are required! To ensure we are compliant with the New Zealand government’s COVID-19 alert system, you can only attend a walk if you have booked first. Book now if you want to secure a spot on our walk.
Comfortable shoes, a bottle of water (there’ll be opportunities to fill up on the way), and sunscreen.
In New Zealand we don’t have much of a tipping culture what we have instead is a concept called Koha, which is much like a gift in response. Our guides work very hard on their tours and for a large part of the year there are few tourists. Tours of the same type in the The US UK or Europe ask for $15- $25USD £20 and €20 respectively if you thought the tour was just good. If you don’t think much of the tour or the guide $5NZD is a nice offer saying you think they could improve.
Walk away! If you are not enjoying the tour walk away, it is free!
