      My only feedback is really the tents, maybe i am spoiled, but would have liked bigger tents as you stay in them every night. I had my own tent, can't imagine being two people in such a small tent.

      Hi Pernille, thank you for your review and feedback it's great to hear you enjoyed your trip. Our tents are 3 person tents but we do only put a maximum of 2 people in each tent (unless you've hired a single tent to yourself as you had) to allow that... Show more

    Frequently asked questions

    • I'm looking at potentially doing the Wild West from Queenstown tour. However, I'm allergic to nuts, sesame, and legumes, and wanted to know if there would be access to hospitals nearby in case something happened. Is there hospital access on the tour?

      Unless you are able to carry accessible medication, we would suggest looking at a tour in a more populated area. The Wild West is beautiful and (as the name suggests) is a relatively remote location. The Southern Light tour in the South Island also visits remote locations and we cannot guarantee that hospital access will be reliable.

      Get in contact with us and our customer support team will work on pairing you with the perfect adventure.
