First, the agent who helped us was very patient during our decision process and made some great suggestions. Thank you to him directly.
The ground transportation was spot on and great in every city.
We stayed in three hotels. One was perfect, second was good ( but they did have a special event prior to our arrival and they were absolutely slammed that week. Completely understand and small hiccups. ). Last hotel was ok. More of price paid and expectation then a let down. We had to move rooms once and second was way better. But little things like internet, no heat, put a bit of damper when you expect great things.
Generally it was a nice vacation. Would I go back to New Zealand? Probably not... very touristy and expensive. I don't know what I expected but perhaps it was bad timing on our part.
Flights were spot on and never had an issue. May have done things a little differently with the flights, but everything went smoothly.
Hope this helps. Happy to give individual ratings if required.
Lunch at Mudbrick vineyards.
Try to get away from the tourist traps and be more out in the country
TRAVEL COMPANY COMMENTS:
Thanks for your comments and for booking your vacation with us! Your agent enjoyed working with you to put your itinerary together. We were glad to read the flights and ground transportation were good and on time.
May would normally be considered ‘shoulder’ season in New Zealand, but this year the World Masters Games were happening in Auckland, so the ‘must see’ places like Rotorua and Queenstown were a little more crowded than normal. Hotels were also charging a little more than usual too. Sorry if the crowds were impacting your vacation... I know the timing of your vacation was tied into visiting your son in Brisbane. Next time we will have better timing perhaps.
