5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

This was a fantastic tour of the Hell's Gate National Park! Visiting Elsamere was so surreal. If only there were lions still roaming the grounds. But beautiful, nonetheless. Hell's Gate National Park was quite something. Really enjoyed seeing all of the wildlife. But the hike into the Hell's Gate Gorge was an incredible memory. Only note here is that the information about the tour doesn't quite explain what I was getting myself into. It was not easy to climb in and out and around the gorge. But totally worth the hike! Just be prepared. I wore a white running shirt - bad idea. I was filthy by the time we finished. But loved every minute of the tour. And totally recommend this trip and hike into the gorge for the adventurous types!
