    The trip was amazing! Good accomodation and good food every day, our tour guide, Burto, made the driving very interesting with all his knowledge and fun facts. The skiing couldn't be better according to conditions, Burto's knowledge of where the best snow is at what time of the day is of such a big value, that's something I've told my friends and family. On our non skiing days Burto came up with suggestions of things to do and made sure everyone got to do what they wanted, awesome! Next time I book a tour with Haka I'll ask Burto which tour he's running so I can be on his tour again, that way I know I'll have a great time!

    I signed up for the 12 Day Snow Odyssey based off of the online itinerary on the Haka Tour website since it seemed quite comprehensive and good value. The tour guide, Burto, was very knowledgeable about outdoors/mountains/snow sports and New Zealand history/culture in general which really elevated the tour experience. Having Burto lead us around the south island for ~2 weeks definitely made the trip more of an adventure. Given his extensive experience with the mountain ranges, he was able to tailor the trip based around local whether patterns to make sure we got the best snow possible each day. Accommodation on the tour was very comfortable and ranged from hostels, to communal ski chalets, and even a private house for our group on occasion. Last, the transportation was great and gave us access to any destination en route.

    Everything about the 12 day Odyssey is brilliant. The organisation is flexible to get the best conditions, you visit some wicked spots and Burto is the best driver, ski guide and good bloke I've ever had the pleasure of being guided by! Knows awesome spots and how best to get there, roadtrips are kept interesting by crazy facts along the way. Driving is safe on some horrendous roads.

What are people saying about TourRadar?

  • 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
