“Most impressive experience in New Zealand”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

With only the two of us and the guide we went on this evening tour. Koru(?!) is an excellent storyteller and made this tour more then worth doing it. His stories aren't only very interesting also very inspiring. The trees are incredible! Walking there at night is also great because you are the only ones in the forest. Must do!

“A Special Evening”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

If you are ever in the North this is a must. A very moving and informative evening for young and old. Our group ranged from 11 up to 65. Koru was a great guide. The Kauri trees are very special.

“Awesome & must do!!”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

We joined ‘Twilight Encounter’ by Footprints and had an awesome time & experience. It would have been completely different without them and must have missed out so much. The guide (story teller) took us to their Maori world… we were very touched by him and ancient Kauri trees. Thank you!!!

“An encounter in the forest”
Reviewed 22 December 2011

We did the Twilight Encounter in the Waipoua Forest to see the large kauri trees with a Maori guide. This was an inspiring evening. We were in awe of the large trees. The Maori guide was wonderful giving us an appreciation of these ancient wonders of nature. This tour is not for those looking for adventure, but it is for those wanting an appreciation of the Maori culture and an appreciation of the wonders of nature.
