    I had an amazing time with Stray. Great stops and driver! The only suggestion I would make is WiFi on the buses as many other bus companies offer this and there are days that you are on the bus for hours...
    Stray Travel commented on this review
    Kia Ora Lily! So glad you had such a great time with Stray :) We actually trialled WiFi on the buses in the past but found that it wasn't necessary as most travellers have pre-paid SIM cards and preferred to use the WiFi at the hostels. At Stray we also love to get off-the-beaten-track which means we love wandering where the WiFi is weak! With good friends, an epic driver guide, plenty of scenic stops and days that are jam packed with activities we aim to help people escape technology and truly embrace the magic that NZ has to offer. Thanks so much for your review, we hope you'll Stray with us again in future!

    In the beginning the air con on board wasnt working but stray got this sorted quickly and were very apologetic. Our driver Flipper was excellent. He was laid back but also very informative about all the places we visited. He ensured everyone was on time for the bus by making any late-comers read a passage from 50 shades of grey which was very entertaining. He made an effort to get to know everyone on board by socialising with us and organising group dinners where everyone helped prepare and cook the food together. One thing I did not like about Stray was that if there was a limited number of places for an activity, ultimately your seat position on the bus could decide if you got to do the activity or not. This was because the clip boards were passed around the same way every day so people knew where the clip board would start and finish. Therefore you could strategically position yourself on the bus so that you would be one of the first to get the clip board and ensure you got your name down early. The people who were furthest down the list ran the risk of not being within the limited number of spots available. This did not cause problems most of the time but was an issue once or twice.

    Hopping on the stray bus was a great way to see NZ, especially travelling solo. I made some new friends, saw some beautiful places, learnt a bit about this amazing country, and tried some awesome activities I wouldn't have tried otherwise. Totally recommend giving stray a go. - Melissa

    Thanks for your enquiry. From the day you purchase the tour, you have 12 months to start travelling from that date.
