    I enjoyed my G-Adventures best of the North Island tour. Pam my guide was excellent and did a good job at balancing the diverse group that our tour party was. I wish we had a more exposure to Maori culture on the tour instead of just one half day stop.... Read more

    The tour gave me a huge amount of flexibility, but also provided a great core structure, so I never felt safe traveling by myself for the first time

    The prices were very competitive and what I really liked was that it was in my local currency. When I booked the confirmation came back in good time. Since then I have received more correspondence regarding the trip, which is good to see and very informative.
