    My trip was an amazing good surprise since I wasn't sure I'd enjoy a tour, but Susie changed my mind in tours. Susie was amazing at making everyone feel welcome and special and helping us make the most of our trip. Having a beautiful soul guiding us was exactly what I needed to relax and enjoy all the wonderful experiences New Zealand had.
