What I got to see was more than amazing: I swum with 300 dusky dolphins, explored volcanoes, conquered New Zealand's top-rated 1-day trek—the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, stargazed at millions of stars while enjoying natural hot springs at night, learnt about the local Maori culture, visited a sustainable..."

    What an awesome trip. The amount of time and places we visited was everything I expected. I wanted to visit as much of New Zealand as possible and I did it with this trip. As I saw other groups traveling around New Zealand as well I felt very fortunate to know that I had a relatively small and intimate group. We had some weather and road related delays but our CEO was always on the ball and managed to make sure we all experienced all of New Zealand. I highly recommend this tour. Jockey (Ben) was just phenomenal as our CEO. I spent most days just laughing and anticipating our next stop because it just seemed to get better everyday.

    This was my first trip with a travel company and didn't know what to expect. I spent 24 days on the tour and overall the experience was amazing. The guide was great and knew a lot of little tid bits of information that would require any foreigner tons of hours of research. The locations and activities were all great. The only minor critiques I have are that I'm fairly active and in good shape and the tour description made it seem like a fairly active tour. I believe that many of the people haven't worked out a day in their life and if there were any physical activities, they went by very slow. I'd suggest they revamp their fitness scale a bit. The tour is pretty action packed but there were a couple of days where we literally did nothing, stuck out in the middle of nowhere. We need only spend a day there but we spent 2 and there was literally nothing to do. Other than that I would highly recommend G Adventures and would do another trip though them.

    I flew the long way down to New Zealand to experience this beautiful country with G Adventures. What I got to see was more than amazing: I swum with 300 dusky dolphins, explored volcanoes, conquered New Zealand's top-rated 1-day trek—the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, stargazed at millions of stars while enjoying natural hot springs at night, learnt about the local Maori culture, visited a sustainable eel farm, did kayak excursions in beautiful places and a sunset boat cruise, enjoyed yoga and surf lessons, met & partied with lovely local people, visited a unique glowworm cave, tasted some great food & wine and enjoyed magnificent landscapes...Our CEO did an amazing job and made us fall in love with his country. You book adventure, you get an adventure! New Zealand is absolute paradise on Earth and I'm definitely going back!
