    I choose to travel with stray after wanting to explore more having no one to travel with stray was the perfect option. Everyone made me feel super welcome and you soon make a close group of friends which you end up touring snf drinking with. Id highly recommend stray if your 22 or older snd looking to explore some of the gems new zealand has to.offer

    Stray is a really fun experience. It's perfect if you're travelling alone or just want to meet new people, as everyone is very friendly. It has quite a chilled out vibe - some people were into partying and others weren't, and there was no pressure either way. We only did the South Island but they took us to all the best spots and I didn't feel like we missed anything out. If you're into adventure stuff, you get discounts on a lot of things and they make it really easy to get booked on. However I'd advise anybody booking with Stray to make sure you sort out your itinerary at least a month in advance to make sure you get onto the buses you want. There aren't enough buses for the amount of people so even if you are relatively organised you are likely to get stuck in certain places or be forced to buy public bus tickets. I would talk to people who have been to New Zealand and find out which places on the route they recommend to hop off at, then get all that sorted before you go. Unless you're really lucky or travelling at a quiet time, it's hard to change your plans last minute without messing up your whole schedule.

    My Stray experience was quit good! It's nice that you stop on different places between the citys for photo stops and that you have the first nights in the accommodations guaranteed. The drivers are friendly and cool and I met people from all over the world.

    Really great way to travel around New Zealand. Convenient transport and available accomodation with background knowledge on what to do and where to visit. Some great stops at scenic sights and short walks to break up the drives. Made some great friends too! Loved it!

    Would recommend stray to any one traveling NZ. I ended up extending my trip because of the people I met on the stray busses. Great activities with some discounts and awesome drivers. While I n Franz Joseph our glacial hike was canceled due to bad weather. We also had rained for the two days we had in Able Tazmen, so everyone was numbed about the glacial, so our driver re arranged some things and got us on an early hike the morning we left Franz. If it wasn't for our driver going above and beyond, we never would have gone on the glacier, Thanks Lolly!!

    I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
