Prices quoted for chartered journeys of four persons. Return fares paid in advance of tramp. We will do our best to take single and couples on existing trips. If you would like to join an existing trip click here: Existing trips or email me to advertise a trip for you (e-mail)
We can do car relocations to any track, or a combination of shuttle on existing trips and your car relocated at a later different time when possible, or at the end to greet you. Call us to discuss the alternatives and prices... For instance the cost from Brown hut to Kohaihai is $320, or Mapua to Kohaihai $250 which saves the vehicle going through the three fords which at times can get difficult or impassable for two wheel drives. However, it is best to combine on an existing trip for safe storage.
Wine tours are negotiable depending on numbers of persons wanting to see vineyards. We can accommodate the needs of all persons, whether a specific visit or arranging a pleasant lunch overlooking the vineyard with the backdrop of Mount Arthur.
Gas is available for those that come off the plane at $9:50 per twist type. Rest break and toilet stops will be offered, but please come prepared to make a direct journey to your destination, or request a stop (other than a comfort stop) before the quote. Often we have other trips as a deadline on the same day.
