    The trip was amazing. It was my first contiki so I didn't know what to expect. But our trip leader and driver were more than amazing ! They made it a trip of a life time and I've been on two contikis since and neither come close to the New Zealand. The accommodations were wonderful, and the coach we had was more than great to travel the country in.

    Susie Ferkins is the best tour guide for contiki ever. If you travel to New Zealand, i would recommend Susie Ferkins for the tour guide. She explains everything really clear and recommends some good places to dine and also to party/drink. Everything went smooth and all activities went smooth. The accommodations were really great and Queenstown is one of the best town and have the best accommodation. I would also recommend Pat as the best bus driver for driving Point A to B. Best driving skills. Remember Susie, Never forget the Asian twins and no one can replace them! hahah
