We had an absolutely wonderful trip in New Zealand, thanks to this agency's help with all accommodation and activities booking, so all we had to do was carry our vouchers with us. The entire itinerary planning process was also very smooth, thanks to prompt feedback and suggestions from Rachel. It enabled us to cover our wish list on both North and South islands, even though our trip itself was quite short. We were also quite satisfied with the accommodation options suggested by her. She provided plenty of details on all our queries about timings and distances to have the trip planned right down to the minute details. Overall, we had a great experience with this agency and would definitely recommend them to friends and family!
The Waitomo caves on the way to Rotorua were just mesmerising. The boat ride through the pitch dark caves, almost feels like you're transported to a different galaxy!
Rotorua was interesting, with all the thermal activity all around.
Quite unexpectedly, the main highlight of our trip, turned out to be the Riverjet Safari in Rotorua, as we opted for "The Squeeze". The Jet boat ride, followed by the short walk in the warm waters of the river, to discover the waterfall and hot water pools was exciting and serene at the same time. We had a great time in Hobbiton as well, being huge fans of LOTR, and returned with plenty of photos from the movie sets.
On the south island, the short drive to Glenorchy with the spectacular views along Lake Wakatipu is just not to be missed, especially for someone looking for a taste of LOTR landscape.
We would go for a day cruise on Milford sound instead of Overnight cruise, as it gets quite boring once the evening activities are done, and there's not exactly great views once it's dark.
We would also skip Hell's gate mud spa, and pick a thermal pool instead, as we were quite uncomfortable with all the Sulphur and Mud in the hot Rotorua sun.
We would also try to visit Lake Wanaka and Coromandel on our next visit, as it was highly recommended by friends.
But most importantly, we'll try to visit for a minimum of 2 weeks as 8 days is just not enough for New Zealand
