Despite phoning to confirm the tour and pick up location twice, we weren't picked up for the tour. When we phoned up to query, were told that the tour was full and we had to rebook for next week, despite telling them we were leaving on Sunday. Their attitude to customer service was appalling.

Excellent trek across the island with our guide Bruce, who was really knowledgeable and friendly, not for the faith hearted this is a challenging climb and descent across Rarotonga, wear shoes with good grip, hiking boots would be best but not something you think of for an island holiday, but well worth the effort for the views from the Needle,...

I went on a cross island trek with Pa and had a great time. He is quite the character so take time to chat with him. Keep in mind this is not the trek for you if you're a bit out of shape. There is a very steep climb to the top.We had a couple on our walk that held... More

We were pleased we did the trek over the Island with Bruce from Pa's Treks as he was very knowledgeable and patient with everyone. It would be easy to get lost doing it on your own. Thank you Bruce

We did the nature walk with Pa. It was not strenious but very interesting. We learned a lot about natural medicine at his "palace" (his house) first. Pa says he is a Guru and a nature lover. Sure he does not eat meat. First we thought: what is this for a walk?, cause we stayed a long time in his... More

The actual hike was really good, we did the cross island walk which was led by Bruce - Pa's nephew, he was fantastic. Lunch was delicious! However, the business side of this operation and Pa came across as unprofessional. Driver didn't show up, people who needed a ride back to their resort were made to walk to the road as... More

This has got to be the best activity on the island... you get up close and personal with nature, Bruce (Pa's nephew) educated us on the nature and biology of the plants, their medicinal uses, and so much more. Pack a small backpack with water and a camera and a snack if you need, but Bruce surprised us with some... More
