    Had the greatest experience of my life! The trip was so much more than I could have anticipated and you do so much within a short period of time that If you meet some good people only knowing them for 5 days may make it feel like you've been best friends your whole life. Our driver for the Stray Journeys was Lolly and she was the best! She helped make my birthday very memorable as well as the whole trip but who could forget when your bus is decorated for Christmas! In the end the whole journey was a blast and I was able to meet amazing people and make unforgettable memories while travelling alone. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime.

    My Trip through almost all of New Zealand was nothing like I expected. It was so so much better. 4 weeks full of beauty, action and new, exciting experiences I am so glad to have made. My year is definitely made and my horizon expanded, for sure. Hunter was my guide throughout the North Island. He is great and always made sure we had fun, organizing adventures for us without fail. I can't live without his favourite song anymore now. Thank you Hunter, seriously. Twinkles was my guide throughout the South Island. Twinkles is a laid-back, sweet, friendly guy. He puts in so much effort to make life for the stray travellers easier, more effective and just lots of fun. He always helps you out and explains you whatever you want or need to know. I also loved the cooking we did together, group dinners were always so nice and yummy. Interesting little stops made long drives pleasant. Thank you guys for bringing me to some of the most beautiful places and most awesome activities I have ever seen and done in such a fun way. Thank you for everything you taught us. This was a beautiful way to see and discover NZ for my sister and me. Met great, great people here as well, from all over the world. Can't believe I have to say goodbye to all these crazy amounts of adventure and beauty of NZ for now. But I'll be back for sure. Still don't believe any of the stories about how you got your name though Twinks ;) have fun getting married! Wish you guys the best :) Cheers!! And thank you.

    I was a bit concerned about my Dingle (2 0day) trip with Stray – it was my first time as a solo traveller and I had no idea what my Stray mates would be like. It proved to be one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The group were awesome, a true Euro bus of mixed ages and countries. The organisation was excellent, we saw the most incredibly beautiful places, shared laughs, great food and had the opportunity to try out so many fabulous experiences – too many to mention - but Franz Josef, Blue Duck, the Tongariro crossing and the mountain bike trail stand out – as do Queenstown and Doubtful Sound– which we all loved. The biggest thanks however goes to Postie (Simon). He was fabulous, took 15 very different people and turned us into a team of mates. His amazing positivity, great sense of humour, patience, organisational skills and incredible knowledge of New Zealand played a critical part in making this holiday such an outstanding journey and adventure. Thank you Stray for making my introduction to New Zealand so awesome and thank you Postie for being a great mate to us all.

    I've not long finished the Dingle tour with Stray Journeys and was tempted to book the whole thing again! I had the time of my life.. one big wow moment. Massive thanks to Ruru who was an awesome guide, friend, drinking partner, entertainer, font of all knowledge and who always had our back. Looking forward to the next adventure with Stray. - Cassy
