    4.5 - Excellent

    Stray was great, nice mix of people with the opportunity to do a real unusual mix of things. The opportunity to party is there but it's not forced on you like similar companies and the flexibility is appealing to the more independent traveller.

    I and a friend spent a month on the Stray bus, using the Short Maximus Pass. Our bus driver Nat was absolutely wonderful. She had been with stray for over 7 years, and was also a native Kiwi girl herself. She knew all of the best local sites to stop at between the major locations, and had plenty of useful advice for all of us on her bus. She was also super friendly, could answer any question you had about the trip or New Zealand in general, and had plenty of her own stories to share with us. The bus was great as well. We met a lot of cool people from other countries and become fast friends with quite a few of them. Average age range on the bus was 20s-30s. Many of the locations that Stray takes you are locations that other companies such as the Kiwi Experience do not offer. I had a positive experience with most (not all) of the hostels that Stray brings you to. All of the exotic locations have privately owned hostels, and i think that these are better cared for and more fun to stay at. Some of the chain hostels in the cities didn't always compare as well. Naturally, being on a bus tour with a tight schedule can cause some limitations, so Stray usually has a hostel selected for you in advance that you can choose to sleep at, or you can get off at that hostel and choose another on your own. However, that can be a little difficult if you haven't booked your room in advance, and are in the peak season like we were. On any tour like this, my personal advice is to just enjoy the ride, know there will be a few places that you wish you could stay longer to do more, and just do your best to get the most out of the opportunities that you do have time for. If you are looking for adventures with great people, I'd highly recommend traveling with Stray.
