Emily "My husband and I recently travelled with Stray Journeys. The other people in the tour group were amazing and our driver was great. All accommodations were clean. We mostly had our own room and bathroom (except for the last 3 nights). The range of activities was awesome! The only downfall of our trip was that our boat in Doubtful Sound was overbooked so we ended up in Milford Sound instead. Overall..."

    This tour brought me to some truly amazing and beautiful places. The Doubtful Sound cruise was especially amazing. I loved the people I met and had a great time. One thing though - don't feel like you have to go on the bike ride on one of the last days if you're not very athletic - it's 2 hours long and ends with lots of hilly parts. Aside from that I had a truly lovely time and would/have recommended it to friends.

    I did the 9 day tour through the south island and it was incredible! I had such a great time traveling with Stray. The people I met on my tour and Oli our guide were all great! A highlight of the Haast tour was definitely the overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound. I also really loved the stop in Queenstown and Franz Josef glacier. I highly recommend!!

    The trip was amazing! I got to see all the things I wanted to in New Zealand and meet some really great people. The Doubtful Dound overnight cruise was especially wonderful. My one advice other than to do this tour is to be careful about the bike ride the second to last day. It's 25 km/15 miles and as a non-biker I didn't realize how long and hard it would be so don't be afraid to pass on the bike ride. Every other part of the trip was wonderful! Go visit New Zealand!

    The best way for travelling on solo, because you get to know all the little places around that are worth looking from place to place and at and at the same time, you get to know people . It is not a party tour as kiwi which I like it and you could have single room if you ask for it ! Love stray !!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this action-packed trip - very much a trip of a lifetime. We were very lucky with the weather and the group bonded well together. The high point of this trip was the overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound with the visit to Franz Joseph glacier coming a close second! Generally, the accommodation was acceptable although none of the group was impressed by the hostel used in Queenstown - would suggest an alternative is offered. Although our driver/guide was very experienced, it was unfortunate that he clearly needed a break and appeared to be very tired and not be very interested in us as a group or taking any care over well-being . If asked to judge performance, I would say "basic/adequate". I believe the individual concerned was, indeed, given leave of absence shortly after our trip in January.
