WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT YOU vs WILD...
“You Vs Wild Experience”
Reviewed November 28, 2011.
This was a fantastic trip, based on the Bear Grills TV series. Pete was our guide, the amount of knowledge he had about the local area and the wilderness was unbelievable. He knew about every tree, bush, leaf, plant. You name it he knew about it, had a use for it and had a story behind it. We learnt how to create fires from things found in the environment and learned so much about what grows around us. If you want an incredibly interesting half day trip through some amazing countryside with a very knowledgeable guide, then this is the trip for you. I highly recommend this.

I have been on all the major tourist walks and tours having lived in NZ for 20 years. The wild vs you walk was a winner. It is interesting, beautiful and educational. I had fun. I will be back with my kids in tow next year to do the snow walk. Thanks Pete.
“Truly excellent and unique experience....”

If you've ever watched Bear Grylls or Ray Mears in action and wanted to have a go at that yourself then i totally recommend this trip. I have lived in Queenstown for 5 years now and i will shamefully admit that i know very little about the flora and fauna of the area. In 1 afternoon i was totally educated in the subjects of plants you can and can't eat (I've got some wild oregano cooking on my pizza as i write this) bush craft, navigation using everything but a compass, making and setting traps. All this was accompanied by some very amusing stories and anecdotes from our top notch guide.
Pete is extremely knowledgeable about this subject and i found the whole experience to be a thoroughly enjoyable one.
The trip is a fantastic spin on your bog standard guided walks. I found it to be excellent value for money and i honestly couldn't recommended it higher.
Thanks heaps Pete.
