Steven, our travel agent, went above and beyond to make our month long trip to New Zealand a fantastic experience. New Zealand is a stunning country and with Steven's custom made itinerary we were able to see much of its beauty, travelling through both the North and South Islands. Steven was very knowledgeable and listened to our interests. He was also very flexible, accommodating last minute changes so that we could spend more time with our daughter who is living there. Every detail was prepared for us - from accommodations and car rentals to travel maps and excursions - we just had to consult the package Steven provided to us. It was very helpful to have his local experience as we never could have put together such a comprehensive vacation plan.
It's hard to choose a favourite... but here are a few: the Coromandel Peninsula has stunning beaches; The Manse B&B is an amazing experience (near Hastings, North Island); Abel Tasman park is stunning; Wanaka is a great town; and we loved Kaikoura's natural beauty. We enjoyed various outdoor activities with great hiking in every town. Fly fishing in Whirinaki Forest Park with our guide John was a highlight. Every place we stayed that Steven recommended, from B&Bs to Boutique Hotels, was top end. The people of New Zealand are as friendly as their reputation, the food is excellent - very fresh, and the wine superb. It was a peaceful experience.
I would pack less clothing and take stronger sunscreen. New Zealand is very casual and relaxed. We would definitely use this agency and Steven again for sure.
