We took a full day guided walk, and had such a wonderful time with Kahu Kayaks. It was so beautiful in the Abel Tasman as the weather was perfect!!!
Everything was well organized. Our guide, Eric, was fantastic. Enjoyed walking & talking with him. The staff were very friendly. I also appreciate the all information and advice we got in advance before making our booking.
This is one of the the most memorable parts of our trip in New Zealand.
