So, I can heartily endorse this travel company, as an ambassador for New Zealand and an awesome trip planner. Our interaction with you was always enjoyable and you were always super responsive – even with our many, many questions.
I can also say that all of the arrangements you made for us were absolutely flawless. We had no lost reservations, no “we didn’t know you were coming,” and no disappointment in what we experienced vs what we discussed with you.
As for advice for other travelers; I would just say to spend as much time as you can. There is so much to see on both islands and in each area. We really enjoyed the horse back trek through middle earth, and we really enjoyed all of the hiking. 3 or 4 days in Queenstown is about right if you venture off on day trips like we did, and the same for Auckland for sure.
We will go back to NZ for sure. But it will likely be for weeks or months not just days. Thanks for your help and patience; it was a trip that will stay with our family forever.
