    It's a unforgettable trip! I got to enjoy so many places in 7 days with other 19 fun-driven travelers, age from 18-75. Honestly I didn't really know what I signed up initially and doubted if this was the right tour for me when sharing room with a... Show more

    Wow what amazing feedback, Sherry - thank you! I'll be sure to let Moose know to keep it up. It's so good to hear when we surprise our passengers (in a good way). Come back anytime! :)

    Sweet as. This was my first time on a tour like this and it was amazing. I cannot recommend it enough. Saw so much in such a little amount of time, it was great. Our guide Moose was extremely knowledgeable and fun to hang out with. I could not ask... Show more

    I loved every bit of the tour. I usually plan my trips alone, so I took a leap by doing a group tour. It was the perfect size (there were around 19 of us) and sharing a room with 3-4 people was fine. Most of the rooms were excellent - some were a little... Show more

    Overall the tour was wonderful! Met a lot of great people and was really lucky with the weather. The tour started off a little rough, with everyone seemingly having a different itinary and mix communication. But our guide/driver, did her best to sort... Show more

    We picked this tour because of the activities they offered. The pick up time for tour worked with our schedule. We could only take off of work for more than one week and many tours offered were longer. Our guide was amazing! We enjoyed the places we went.

    Kia Ora Afshan - We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your tour with us around the North Island :) Hopefully you'll be able to come back for a longer period of time in future - we'd love to show you the South Island!

    I liked almost everything in the trip. The exception was the day at Blue Duck Station. The place is boring, with bad acommodations and the way to get there is very unpleasant. I would rather to do something else than that.
    Stray Travel commented on this review
    Kia ora Elton! Thank you for sharing your feedback. So many people rank Blue Duck Station as the highlight of their North Island trip, but we understand it's not to everyone's tastes. It's good to hear you enjoyed everything else!

    This tour turned out to be one of the best trips I have ever taken!! I was a little nervous that we wouldn't get picked up since we were the only people being picked up at that certain location, but our tour guide, Seagull, turned up on time and it was... Show more

    The trip was awesome. Great tour group size allowing everyone to get to know each other. The guide was informative but not too pushy making it easy to get to know each other without pressure

    This was without a doubt one of the best experiences of my life. I recently quit my job and decided to travel for a while (alone), and I was looking for a tour where I could meet people while also covering a lot of ground. Stray did not disappoint. I... Show more
