“Kaleb was excellent in all respects despite being new to AA guiding this season. We enjoyed him thoroughly.”
- David Miller (Wayzata, Minnesota, United States), Rimu January 2019

“Kaleb was so much fun! He was always positive, able to answer all of our questions, made sure everyone felt a part of the group, and always ensured we were all having a great experience. He was a great driver, making sure “Kate” got us to and from each location safely. He also taught me how to do a “Tim Tam” slam, a small detail but something I’ll always remember. Overall a terrific lead guide!”
- Kevin Bui (Dover, New Hampshire, United States), Rimu October 2018

“Oh Kaleb, I wish we could clone you. You were sweet, funny, so full of knowledge about plants, birds, New Zealand culture and history. When everyone was overdressed for the biking trip, you carried all of our jackets. Who does that? Your smile comes from deep within you and it’s so genuine.”
- Terri Krawietz (San Antonio, Texas, United States), Tui November 2018

    Wonderful Manuka Trip With Active Adventures, New Zealand

    Hi, I'm back home in the USA after my Manuka adventure with Active Adventures, New Zealand. I would like to compliment everyone in your company that I came in contact with....from my initial contact with Fiona to my pre-trip emails with Lynette everything was handled with complete professionalism. This was my first adventure with your company but I'm pretty sure that it will not be my last.
    Everything during the trip went forward in a very efficient manner. I was amazed at the energy level and efficiency of our guides Amanda and Holly. The amount of work that they were able to accomplish during the course of a day, their energy levels and very positive attitudes made the trip enjoyable for all of us clients. Also, their knowledge of their country and their willingness to share made the trip even more enjoyable for me.
    Again, thank you to all and especially to Amanda and Holly....I really enjoyed my first visit to New Zealand.

    Excellent NZ Adventures!

    My Rimu Active Adventure trip exceeded my high expectations. The hikes, backpacking, kayaking, and cycling adventures were thrilling, fun, and beautiful. Luckily for our group, we had absolutely perfect weather every day of the trip! Dani and Hilary were tremendous guides who taught me a lot about Kiwi life. Highlights for me were the 3-day backpacking tramp in Nelson Lakes National Park to Angelus Hut and kayaking in Milford Sound. I appreciated that we mostly stayed in local lodges, hotels, inns. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to truly explore the stunningly beautiful South Island of New Zealand with wonderful friendly guides.

    Awesome New Zealand experience

    Wow, what a great trip! New Zealand was at the top of my bucket list & this trip was everything I expected and more. Mt. Cook on a beautiful evening with no clouds and the lake in front was one of my favorites. Milford Sound kayaking was another. Just getting to Milford Sound is spectacular! I'd go back in a heartbeat if it weren't so far away.

    Feb 12 2017 Tui with Greg and Melissa

    The weather slowed us down on the first couple of days. But after that it was an amazing experience. The views, the activities and the guides made it easy. Coordinating the activities, transportation, food, etc.

    Best family trip ever. The South Island of New Zealand is one of the most spectacular places on the planet and the Rimu trip takes you to all the highlights. Our group hit the jackpot with Koru and Ash. They were fabulous. This trip gets my highest recommendation all around.
