Franziska "This is the best value for money-trip I have ever done. Richard was very considered and flexible in creating the final itinerary to make sure everyone is having a good time and returning home with a memorable highlight. Mine was the evening spent in beautiful, historic town Russel with climbing up a hill to see the sunset and fab fish’n Chips by the sea. Sand boarding and the walk to the most nort..."

    Rich “Tricky” is a great guy to hang out with and has an intimate knowledge of the area as well as a ton of great stories for around the campfire. Great cook too

    Tour was really spectacular! Everyday had something to spoil us – an amazing beach, a mountain hike, or a scenic walk. The transport was great and accommodations were pleasant. My guides (Richard and Dianne) were really social people and helped bring the... Read more

    From the initial process of booking to the very last second of my goodbyes to my group, I absolutely cannot express how much this vacation tour has meant to me. I booked in December and was touring around the North Island in January 2019. So many memories... Read more

    Great value trip to the north of the North Island. Got to see lots of things in a short period of time, and Richard was great at making sure the trip had a really relaxed feel to it.

    Despite itinerary not being half bad in terms of seeing all Northland has to offer, the Tour Guide was very disrespectful. It was nice to see that he was willing to consider what we wanted to see in his 'flexible' itinerary, however, he acted more like a... Read more

    Sweet As Travel commented on this review
    Hey Gerard, I do apologize for whatever made you feel like I was a “lonely taxi driver wanting friends” or somehow giving NZ a false image. Didn’t realise you had such a bad time! We’re here to provide great group travel options so people on a budget can see more of NZ. This is reflected in our pricing & flexibility which we didn’t have to offer, despite taking you & your boyfriend to two places that weren’t on the itinerary & including paid activities that weren’t in your package. Having had to go off track, which alone is disrespectful, to accompany you for health and safety, may I add that it is due to Maori landowners that we’re prohibited in what information we can verbally provide. For that reason, almost all sites we go to have information & history boards along the tracks that you were welcome to read. At no point in any way were “beeps” used to distress animals. It is prohibited to harm or kill wildlife, which we avoid when they are in the path of the vehicle. Were you referring to the local restaurants in Paihia on the 1* meal rating, because we didn’t supply any? Sweet As.
