This travel agent put together an itinerary for us with our input that worked perfectly. We asked for a trip to New Zealand that included National Parks, nature, and hiking. We got exactly what we asked for. We had great sampling on different parts of the country and many of the parks. She included several private or small group day tours for us that we never would have found on our own. By doing these, we were able to get to know some of the local people and learn more about the area we were touring. She also provided step by step travel instructions with directions and activity and restaurant suggestions for each location. When we did not have a rental car, she had drivers lined up in advance. It made traveling so easy, and we felt very spoiled. We also enjoyed all the accommodations. Small boutique hotels with character, nice staff, refrigerators, and many with kitchenettes. Communication was easy and quick. So glad we had this agent arrange our trip for us.
We loved the whole trip and were sad to leave each location.
Two locations stand out as the best. The first was the top of the South Island of New Zealand. We spent one day in Abel Tasman Park on a kayak and hiking tour and the second day hiked on Whararaki Beach which included rolling green pastures dotted with sheep, and amazing beach with cool rock formations, and tide pools with seal pups playing.
The second location was Doubtful Sound. We did an overnight fiordland cruise. It was such a remote and unpopulated area, where we were in awe of the fiords, seals, dolphins, and waterfalls, not to mention the food and service were top notch.
Nothing, for our first trip to New Zealand. When we go back for a second visit, we will likely spend more time in a few locations.
