Was a great experience despite the weather reducing the view. Wasn't cold even though drizzling. Very tempted to go again in Autumn when most of the flowering trees are in flower.

Awesome opportunity to learn about New Zealand bush, birds and insects

Beautiful scenery, awesome guide and great weather. Easy walk.
