The overland track is a fantastic walk and the guided, private hut approach makes it comfortable for most walkers. Our guides were also great and really went out of their way to make it a special experience for everyone.However there were two or three issues which could have

Fantastic walk. Couldn’t fault the guides, food, cabins and of course scenery. Wonderful challenge and if there weren’t so many other places on earth to visit I would do it again. The guides are very knowledgeable, patient and keep you safe at all times.

Challenging with extremes of weather and walking surfaces but memorable due to our guides’ assistance and support. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the excellent meals prepared by our guides and appreciated the drying room and hot shower we accessed every afternoon after a

Climbing to Marion's Lookout in gale force winds on the first day was terrifyingly exciting. The trip was unforgettable. The guides, accommodation, food, scenery, and fellow trekkers were fantastic. Hot showers at the end of the first day were to die for. The perfect combination

Hi there, The guides are really good at allowing for people to walk at their own pace. The group can spread out and generally there will be 1 guide toward the front of the group and 1 toward the back. Sometimes the faster walkers may need to wait for the group to catch up but it generally works itself out without becoming an issue. At lunch stops the lead guide will boil some water for hot drinks etc so people can keep warm. I hope this helps. Cheers,

In our group people walked at different paces but it wasn't a problem - never too long a wait, and besides, the waiting points were usually for a morning or afternoon snack, or lunch, and in a spot that was relaxing and pleasant to be in. The guides generally ensured that one of them was with the front group and the other near the back. Not much dawdling!

Hi Jim, Great idea for a 40th birthday. I think everyone else has answered this for me - average age is generally between 40 - 65, groups do vary though. Cheers, Ros

"All rooms are fairly equivalent. Comfort is relative. This is not city 5 star accommodation but for the wilderness it's excellent."
"No room choice - the tour group members need to decide among themselves who will sleep where"
"all the huts have the same design except the kia ora hut. The right-hand side first room has a spectacular view. pick that room if possible"
"If you walk fast, you can choose your room first!"
"Upstairs and along the corridor for best least noise during the night"
