    The guide Lifty is funny and nice. Overall the tour is very good. The only thing I don’t like about Stray is they cancelled my North Island tour, put me in another tour which conflicted my schedule, so I need to cancel the tour, and Stray charged me 20%... Read more

    Hi Winnie, it's good to hear you had a good time on tour with Lefty, but I am sorry about what happened with your North Island tour. Did you fill out one of our feedback surveys or send a message to feedback@straytravel.co.nz about this? If you haven't already done so, we would appreciate a feedback email from you so we can investigate. Cheers, Lisa at Stray

    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.

    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... Read more

    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.

    Great fun seeing the far South Island of New Zealand! Cookie is the best so if you get a chance to have him cook you dinner please do! We were able to see a lot of the South Island in a very short time. Brilliant!!
