    5.0 - Excellent

    I travelled throughout the North Island with Stray and had the best time! Stray is absolutely perfect for solo travelers as you make an endless amount of friends while amazing the most beautiful places. I gained so much knowledge about all activites, accommodation and destinations we were going to from the driver guide, who was the nicest person. 10/10 would recommemend to everybody, especially for people who are solo travelling since it can be nerve wrecking - Stray will make your time in New Zealand one of a kind! :)

    We just finished Peter pass few days ago and it was amazing. My bro and I were a bit worry about our parents as they’ve never experienced this type of group tours and staying in remote areas, hostels, hiking, etc. However, they really enjoyed the whole trip. You will definitely see very nice, like-minded and lovely people on the bus and they are amazing. We all get along very well and had the great time. Our tour guide/driver, Mozzy is amazing. My mom normally gets car sick, but with his amazing driving skill, she was perfectly fine for the whole trip. He’s really relax and on time person, which we really appreciate. Also, he helped out and drove us few places as mom got knees problem and she couldn’t participate in Alpine crossing. We had fun, relax and party sometimes and parents really enjoyed the whole trip even this is mostly for younger people. Accommodation was good, they help us to get our own room most of the time. Parents already share their experience with stray to their Burmese friends :) We will definitely come back and do the South Island next year.

    This tour is totally awesome, except Lolly really should have a dog companion. That would make it even better.

    I had an incredible experience with stray in New Zealand's north island, from the enthusiastic bus drivers to the helpful advice and list of activities for each day. I met some great peple and enjoyed the trip so much. If they improved they're bus booking system that would be even better!

    I travelled alone for the south island but once id hopped on the stray bus for the north i wish I took it for whole place. They book activities, accomodation. They have offers on different things. Serious local knowledge and love of their country. Took stress out of everything and was ridicoulsy easy to meet new people and makes friends.

    Couldn't be happier as Stray showed a lot of the Northern Island in the short time I had. Great mix with stays on farms, with Maori people and a lot of waterfalls. Leftie and Ben (Weka) were the most amazing guides making sure everyone had a great time-all the time!, enthusiastic about their country and you see that they like their job (even if it is 24/7 at times). (Give them a payrise!) I would never have been able to organise such a variety of great experiences/places/people to meet on my own with the little time avaiblabe. Hop on a bus with Leftie or Ben (Weka)- you will not regret it! 5 of 5 Kiwistars is my rating! My only complaint: More stops with lamms, cows and milking parlors please ;-)

    Your website was very simple to use. I was able to find exactly what I wanted and when I wanted my tour. The price was also a big factor in choosing your company. As I have done a Cosmos tour before, I knew it would be good value for the price.
