We were biking the West Coast Wilderness Trail & wanted to visit the Hokitika Gorge but of course had no car to get there. Rachel was great. She Collected us in town & gave us some local history as we drove out to the Gorge. What an awesome spot!! Nice walk,fabulous photo ops, lots of sandflies!! Thanks Rachel we will recommend you.

Rachel is an absolute legend- when our plans had to drastically change due to my travel buddy's illness, she gladly drove us up to greymouth to get to hospital last minute and showed real compassion. Plus she took me to the gorge afterwards as well, which was a breathtaking place to visit. Amazing woman and an amazing part of the world to visit; could not reccommend this business enough.

If sight seeing is your plan, I would recommend Hokitika Scenic Tours. Our visit to pancake Rocks was just amazing. Rachel was very informative with her local knowledge and the drive was so very relaxed. Didn't feel rushed in anyway while walking Pancake Rocks, lots of photos opportunities as well. A big thank you to Hokitika Scenic Tours the day was just wonderful thank you. Kate Maungaturoto

I loved this tour so much! Thank you Rachel for teaching me so much about the history and the surrounding area. You are such a sweetheart and seeing the beautiful Hokitika Gorge was definitely one of the highlights of my south island trip. 11/10 recommend :-)

Fantastic personal tour with Rachel
Fantastic to have a personal tour with Rachel, much better than a tour with a large group. No other tours can even compare to such great quality as Rachel's. Many opportunities for great photos. She knew all of the hidden gems of the region only locals know of. Rachel is very knowledgeable and friendly and definitely reccomend taking any of the tours she offers. She had a warm smile and a positive demeanor for both of our two day tours. It felt like we were greeted and cared for - for two days by an old, dear friend. We plan on contacting her again the next time we are in Hokitika.

We took the lake & gorge trip with Hokitika Scenic Tours and we were delighted by the feeling that this was a personalized tour. Rachel was our guide and driver, and we couldn't have had a more friendly or knowledgeable person. We were not rushed at stops, and arrived at each one prepared with what to expect and with time to look around, including time to take the gorge walk to the viewpoints and swinging bridge. This is *Not* like being on a tour bus with a guide droning into a microphone, this is a nice roomy van with a local Kiwi who knows the history, the trees, the birds, and answers all of your questions as if it were the first time she'd been asked.

We hope to come again to this "place of return" and hope we find Hokitika Scenic Tours still here to use again, maybe for a trip to Fox Glacier...

Rachel from Hokitia Scenic Cruises was a joy to take a tour with. She is very informative with extensive knowledge and pride for Hokitika.
She took us out to the Hokitika Gorge where we spent some pleasant time taking in the splendour of this beautiful spot.
I would highly recommend Rachel if you are contemplating a visit to Hokitika, nothing is too much trouble for her.
