    Would not travel with Stray again. Currently writing a letter of complaint due to the service provided and poor customer service. I had a completely different experience from what I was led to believe I would by the website - very difficult to hop on and off / change itinerary due to buses not being daily. The main disappointment though were the negative experiences of one particular driver including being left behind as the bus I was due to hop onto left 40 mins ahead of schedule without me and another passenger- Stray wanted to manage this initially by requesting I make my own way to the next place by public transport, only because I refused did the bus then have to turn around and come get me/ us. Very disappointed and put a major downer on the trip.

    The Short Q allowed you to get to some key places in the South Island especially the key activities in Queenstown. I wanted to get rafting done so added this to my schedule. I rafted in Rangitata (highly recommended) and Shotover (quite good but sections not as good as Rangitata). Also did the learn to fly in Wangata -this included taking off and landing the plane. I stayed on the bus after Christchurch and went to Kaikoura. Well worth it for the Dolphin Swimming.

    Stray was much more than I expected in every area. It's designed to help create international relationships while traveling, and it does just that. I couldn't be happier with how helpful they were, how much fun they provided, and the group I toured with. They provided memories to last a lifetime and friendships around the glob!

  • Lynette12th April 2018
    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
