    3.5 - Good

    Our tour guide Vicki was excellent! She went above and beyond what would be considered her typical responsibilities and helped in every aspect of the tour. Her knowledge of the areas we traveled was extensive and she made everyone feel like family. Her service alone would make me recommend the tour, although the New Zealand countryside can see itself.
