Tara "The trip was 100% what I expected, and was exactly how it is described .. both the tour guides I had were extremely knowledgable, friendly and helpful. There were always activities to do some which you have to pay for but if you didn't want to do those, than the tour guide would say other things you could do , mainly hikes or walks but with the scenery around you these Walks are beautiful .. ..."

    I had an amazing time exploring the north island of New Zealand! Tolan was super knowledgeable and so fantastic that I cannot put it into words. The north island had a lot of things to offer and I wish I could stay in some towns longer than others but alas... Read more
