Andrew Prill

New Zealand Guide

Andrew is a Kiwi lad from Howick. Like many Kiwi blokes he's a keen surfer, snowboarder and swimmer and he's travelled the world. You'll be happy to know that he's guided over 1100 people all over Europe, Russia and Scandinavia and he hasn't lost a single one! If you're lucky enough to have Andrew as your lead guide when you visit us down here, be sure to ask him about his experience hiking the Weavers Trail to Machu Picchu or better-yet, his adventure hitch-hiking across the United States.

Andrew's favourite quote: "There he goes, one of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high-powered mutant never considered for mass production. Too weird to live, too rare to die." - Hunter S. Thompson

Testimonials

  • “Andy was a truly amazing guide who was professional, knowledgeable, funny, and patient and he knew how to put his clients at ease so they could enjoy a fabulous adventure in many different ways. He listened carefully and then was able to hold conversations with everyone in the group about topics that truly interested them. His calm and supportive nature put everyone in the group at ease - "easy peezy" The depth of his knowledge about the MT Blanc area was impressive and he made the trip a most memorable one. His easy and playful interaction with Jean Marc and the others in our diverse group made for a very comfortable and friendly atmosphere for all.”
    Patty Wheeler (Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States), Tour du Mont Blanc September 2018

  • “Just terrific in all respects. Cared for all of our individual needs and great knowledge of history and culture.”
    Dave Muschler (Illinois, United States), Kauri November 2017

Why travel with Active Adventures?

Above all, we aim to be amazing hosts. We're proud of our kiwi roots, and our professional, warm and relaxed style of running trips around the world is unforgettable.

We're VERY picky about who we select to work in our team, and we have people from all over the world lining up to guide our trips. So we get to hire the absolute BEST in the business.

As soon as you get off the plane, we've got all the details of your vacation covered – top notch meals, comfortable transport & accommodation, amazing guides and INCREDIBLE service.

Whether you’re new to adventure travel, or you’ve never travelled in a group before, you’ll find yourself arriving home positively different from when you left.

With our small groups (no more than 14), you'll get to know our team, your fellow travellers, and have the flexibility and freedom to do as much (or as little!) as you like.

It's all about getting there under your own steam – on foot, in a sea kayak, or by bike. What better way is there to experience mind blowing scenery? If it's your first time, no worries – our expert guides have got you covered.
