    Last year me and three of my friends (dutchies) went travelling for six months, starting in NZ. All of us being 18 y/o and this being our first time far away from home for a long time, we couldn't be happier to start it off with a Stray tour. The Stray bus... Read more

    Great for a guided bus tour and group travelling, but not a flexible hop-on - hop-off provider. When I booked with Stray, I looking for a mode of transport that allows me to get to all the big attractions of the country, and to be flexible on being able to... Read more

    Stray Travel commented on this review
    Kia ora Niko! Thank you for sharing your constructive feedback with us. I'm glad we were able to deliver on your first expectation, but understand how you feel about the second expectation. We try to keep the hop-on, hop-off flexibility throughout the year by putting more coaches on the road over peak season and encouraging people to continue to hop off, but this sounds like something we need to continue to improve. Regarding your comment about the bus drivers and drinking, we would greatly appreciate if you send more information about where and who you observed doing this to our Operations Manager Jimmy (email: jimmy@straytravel.co.nz) so we can investigate further. Thank you again - Lisa

    Travelled with Romeoo from Auckland to Queenstown. Those 2,5 weeks were the best week of my life! I was on stand by almost every day, and still could hop on the bus. Even though I had to hop off for one day, the next day I was able to hop on that bus again!... Read more

    I loved my trip with stray! I am 27 solo traveller and instantly found my stray family home. Easy to get along with people, amazing drivers and a diverse age range (average around 25 but we even had a 70 year old couple, and they were part of the family).... Read more

    Great way to get around new Zealand. If you're traveling solo for a limited time this is definite the best way to get around and meet other travellers. Went some places I was not so bothered about going and I think you do need to hop off in a few places or... Read more

    As I waited for my stray bus outside YHA in Auckland, I decided to pinch the wifi and call my brother. It was 7am, pickup was at 7.20. In the corner of my eye a gentleman was hovering near by, so I turned. A guy with green hair and a baseball cap, with a... Read more

    Stray Travel commented on this review
    Hi Yoan, We are very sorry to hear that you are disappointed with your Stray experience. Your situation with staying in National Park is the result of the scheduled bus from National Park to Wellington being physically unable to travel due to the extreme weather conditions and flooding that occurred just after the earthquake this week. I know that the driver did try to get you to Wellington the other day, but had to turn around when the roads were closed. You were then given the options of staying in National Park to carry on via the next Stray bus or via public bus or returning to Auckland in order to adjust your journey from there. Stray's first priority is always customer safety and we would never leave someone without providing them with their best options for continuing their trip. We would appreciate if you can get in touch with Reservations at your earliest convenience (e: reservations@straytravel.co.nz / p: 09 526 2140) and they will be happy to assist you with your onward bookings.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • How do meals work for vegetarians in this tour?

    There are no meals included on this trip with Stray travel, so you will be able to select what you choose to eat.

  • Is it true that the pass is valid for a year?

    The Moe Pass from Stray is indeed valid for 12 months. They recommend at least 4 weeks to get the most out of your trip and to allow some time to hop-off and explore your favourite destinations for longer. This is why the dates are set up with a start and finish date - you don't necessarily HAVE to finish on that date, they just need to enter a finish date in the system so they have put the minimum recommended length in. You can hop and hop off the tour for the whole 12 months and take it slow if you would like (and what an awesome trip that would be!) or you can go faster for a shorter amount of time (still an awesome trip!).
