Response from Katiepai, Owner at Guided Kepler Track Heli Hike
Responded May 21, 2019
Oops I think that was supposed to be a 5 star review? Sounds like you had a great time over three days with us and I'm sure got to know the guides well - yes we agree they are fit, but then walking for a job helps ;) So glad you enjoyed the variety and though the hikes were all amazing, thank you! Yes the Kepler Heli Hike offers such a range of different environments as you walk from the alpine area down to the lake edge. Thank you and this is the best (and only) 'terrible' star rating we have managed so I hope people read it first!
