Lois EI sought assistance from our trip planner of this travel company for a three week first class trip to New Zealand. We started with the ideas I had of some "must do" locations for the trip and since this was our first trip to New Zealand, we were unsure of weather, travel within the country and a logical itinerary. I outlined our ideas during the first conversation and the trip planner immediately got it. She produced a rough draft that we refined over subsequent conversations which resulted in a logical itinerary which included all the destinations we wished to see. With our planner's comprehensive knowledge of the country and the lodges, she steered us away from unnecessary traveling and lodges that didn't meet our criteria. The result was a trip that could only be described as a dream. We traveled to Queenstown, Kia Kaura, Pillsner Bay, Lake Taupo, Russell and the Bay of Islands and finally Auckland. The lodges were wonderful and when we did decide to make a change to drive rather then fly in the middle of the trip, our trip planner handled the request without any difficulty. We could not have arranged this successful of a trip without her and I will recommend her and her company to anyone who desires a trip to gorgeous New Zealand and a real insider's knowledge of the country. Five stars is not enough.
The lodge in Queenstown, Steamboat on Lake Wakatipu, Milford Sound private tour and scenic cruise, local airline for return to Queenstown, Luxury estate in near Ocean Beach with tour of the grounds, Lodge in Taupo ( perfection in every sense), Russell and the Bay of Islands ( my husband was ready to move there), sailing on Ataahua with Ian and Fran. The people are the nicest, friendliest people you ever want to meet. Sheep! and beautiful wool clothing.
Eliminate Kia Kaura and stay in Christchurch instead. Stay much longer!
