    4.5 - Excellent

    A highly enjoyable 27 day tour in New Zealand, starting and finishing in Auckland. Flying Kiwi have fine-tuned their tours to cover as much as possible on both islands and they cover a lot of ground so expect to spend at least a few hours on the bus each day but with frequent stops for activities, toilet breaks and photo opportunities. The bus is well-equipped (and custom-built) with a built-in kitchen and on-board storage for bicycles as well as USB charging points at every seat. New Zealand campsites are generally excellent and well-equipped; the tents and mattresses provided by Flying Kiwi are good quality and easy to set up. Plenty of food provided along with ample opportunities to pick up snacks/sweets at supermarkets. The daily cycle rides were a great way to stretch the legs and featured some fantastic scenery. The same can be said about the numerous hikes/walks. All in all: an excellent tour and highly recommended provided you enjoy camping and outdoors-oriented tours.
    Flying Kiwi commented on this review
    thanks scott and a perfect explanation of our trips. As you say we squeeze a lot in though we should mentioned our trip is the longest out there at 28 days....most other companies squeeze it into 21 but thats not for us! :)

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • July 1, 2016

    What type of cabins will be provided?

    The cabins vary a lot from camp to camp, but are mostly basic rooms with just a bed, bottom sheet, pillow and pillow case. Bedding is usually included or otherwise can be hired. Some places are a little bit fancier and offer more hotel/motel style accommodation, especially if you chose the ensuite option.

  • Vicki10th June 2018
    The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
