Our sincere apology but Pat Vainerere who was listed to walk as the guide on this trek has spent all week in hospital so is not available to lead this trek.  Hopefully he is on the mend in the near future and back home and back to his old self.

We would like to thank Bob Killip who has agreed to fill in for Pat and at short notice lead this trek on our behalf.  I was informed that Bob (Robert) has climbed Mt Everest in 2006. He walked the track recently with another company who sub contracts to us and was pleasantly surprised to know Wayne Urini will be on the track with him again as they apparently got on quite well.
