What we love most of all about running tours all over New Zealand is the amazing people we meet, real passionate Kiwis in some of the most stunning corners of the country. Meet a few of our mates from around the South Island, great people doing great work.

Guest Reviews
West Coast

One of the great things about living in Auckland where most of our guests are too, is that from time to time we have the opportunity to catch up in person. Recently Kiwi Guide Andrew had the pleasure of the company of Glenis, Sharon and Shelly, who all shared a recent South Island trip together. As well as a fun catch up and tasty lunch, the ladies shared their recent experiences on their Karamea & Wild West Coast tour.

At the end of March this year, I was lucky to be given the opportunity to guide 18 guests on a brand new MoaTours trip, the Karamea & Wild West Coast Trails 7 day tour. In late March with a merry band of travellers we set off on our adventure to explore the northern end of the South Island's West Coast. I'm Andrew Wells, a Kiwi Guide with MoaTours and here is my perspective on this tour, from the point of view of the guide.
