The best tour we have done in NZ! We went on a tour with Chris Pomeroy. My husband was really impressed by the wealth of knowledge he shared and we both loved the trip. Beautiful scenery, weather, well informed commentary, great coffee and overall the best tour experience we have had in NZ! Eli was fun too! Thank you!

Only way to end of Spit is by tour, this trip was 6 hours of information delivered with passion! We loved it, Chris (owner/guide) is really knowledgeable, kids might get bored though.

Amazing trip, the owner's passion was amazing for the land and the plants and animals that lived there, also the geology.

Bus driver/owner very knowledgable/opinionated but gave information in a lecture manner. Did not find the 4 hours enjoyable, more like a school trip. I acknowledge that there are some serious issues to discuss but being told for 4 hours continuously was too much. Then being made to sit in a circle at the lighthouse and listen to him lecture for another half hour instead of being able to relax and walk around was boring and disappointing. Bus driver had strong opinions which are not held by all people and we felt like he was trying to push his opinions onto us.
Not a lot to look at. Wouldn't recommmend trip at the current high price.

Having flown over the area many times finally got to do a tour. Guide Chris was great, tour informative and the whole adventure amazing. The scenery, bird life etc was everything I expected and more. Would recommend this tour to anyone with time in Golden Bay. Would recommend the 6 hour tour if you have time.

A good combination of some excitement in the 4WD truck and a natural experience.

6 hours was too long, no animals or birds to see - although it was raining.
