Ashley "I had an amazing time. In some respects I think I got lucky: I had good weather for my entire trip and a great group of people to spend my week with. For the most part, however, I think New Zealand is just a beautiful and great place to be. Whatever you're paying Telli, give that man a raise! He was a fantastic guide and helped to make our tour fun. I definitely recommend the Southern Voyager T..."

    Seven days of absolute fun! The South Island was beautiful. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a South Island getaway. And if Telli is your guide, ask him to tell you the horse joke.
