    Contiki in New Zealand was amazing! I loved every minute of it. Everything was organised perfectly and ran smoothly. Susie our tour manager was fantastic, she knew her stuff and went above and beyond her job requirements. She was enthusiastic and helpful at all times. I had an amazing 2 weeks in New Zealand and would recommend it to everyone!

    My trip with Susie was so fabulous, she was so knowledgeable about her hole country and I couldn't have asked for anyone better! But there wouldn't be anyone better to be honest.

    The tour was amazing, visited great places and the optional and included activities were all epic. The ultimate highlight was having Isobel as a guide, we is informative and hilarious, super organised and friendly, I could not have wished for more!

    This tour was absolutely incredible. Isobel is by far one of the best tour guides in the world and deserves guide of the year award. She loves what she does, is knowledgeable, well traveled, and knows how to make each day on the tour better than the last. If I was ever to travel like this again, I would only choose Isobel and Contiki!!!
