His stories were enjoyable and the music brought amazing vibes! Tips on what to skip and cues to keep us aware of how long it would take us to get to certain parks was a MAJOR benefit, and probably the only reason we made to the Pipiwai Trail in time to make it to Paia by nightfall. I am truly grateful for that. So many good tips on how to make the most of the journey as well as insight on the culture and how to be respectful. I am concerned that the info on Venus pools has not been changed.
