Ann "My Stray Journey New Zealand Beetham tour was just what I was hoping for and more. It would not be for every traveler. I typically travel "backpacker" style and this was a step above. Shared accommodations were clean & functional. Dinners were tasty and our driver/guide Postie made sure we had a filling breakfast before our challenging Tongariro Alpine Crossing.

    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!

    It was a great trip overall. Our guide, Hemy, was always very cheerful, patient and knowledgeable about the places we visited. The accommodation was sufficiently clean and comfortable. The vehicle was ok as well.
