    Grant was a great tour group leader. Very fun and helpful. He really wants each one to make the most of the holiday. The mix of people was also great and the nature of the tour where we were not tied to a rigid itinerary is great!

    Haka Tours commented on this review
    Hi Shaly, Grant certainly is one of the good guys, his passion for all things NZ is 10 to none! I am sure you have a new group of friends from all over the world to share your time in New Zealand with, maybe we will see you all for a reunion tour! ;)
