    What a great way to see the Southern part of the South Island. Milford, Stewart Island and Mt Cook were fantastic. Travelling in a group is so much more fun and social than on your own.

    I had the best time ever while travelling with STRAY!!!!! We visit places that I would never imagine exists. Our driver guide was the most knowledgeable and helpful guide ever. I would 100% recommend Stray if you're looking for the trip of a life time. We all became really close with other travelers on the bus and up till now we all remain in contact with each other. I would definitely come back to New Zealand and travel with Stray again in the future. THANK YOU STRAY FOR MAKING MY VISIT TO NZ THE MOST MEMORABLE TRIP EVER

    This tour guide was very personal and fun! Although i did not love that some of the activities weren’t included in the price so I was a little blindsided by the fact that I had to pay for tickets such as ones to Milford sound and Stewart island, so i wasn’t prepared for that. But otherwise I had a really fun time

    Hi Kate! Thanks for the great review :) Yes, our hop-on hop-off passes include transport only. It is our Journeys tours that include accommodation and some activities. Glad to hear you had a fun time!

    I had an amazing trip with Stray. The bus driver Motors was absolutely fantastic and put a lot of effort in to ensure each person had a good time.
