My wife and I just returned from a fantastic 3 wk vacation in New Zealand planned with these travel agents. We communicated by phone and Email prior to the trip and they really were in tune with our desires and preferences. The accommodations were mostly small venue and all were friendly and first class. The meals they served were gourmet. Our itinerary arrived before our trip in a nice leather wallet. All reservations were expecting us. Personal wine and fishing guides were knowledgeable fun to be with. Transportation showed up right on time. We did quite a bit of driving and the directions we received were detailed and easy to follow. The country was beautiful.
Every day was memorable and enjoyable. We sailed and crewed on an America's Cup yacht in Auckland Bay. We developed a new appreciation of New Zealand wines with personal wine tours on Waiheke Island, Hawkes Bay and Blenheim. At Rotorua after a float plane tour of the Tarawera volcano and lakes we were picked up on the lake by our guide and spent 2 days of pleasant fishing. There was golf on the scenic courses at Cape Kidnappers and Jacks Point. We had another enjoyable day of fly fishing out of a lodge near Nelson. The Able Tasman cruise was beautiful and we learned a lot about the flora and fauna of the area. We took a helicopter flight landing on a glacier at Franz Josef, rode the Trans Alpine train, and cruised the Milford Sound. We enjoyed personal gourmet meals at the Manse near Hawkes Bay and at the lodge near Nelson. All considered, we could not imagine a better trip.
We would spend one more day of fly fishing at the lodge. Only disappointment was missing a planned day of fly fishing due to rainy weather at Wanaka. Weather was also responsible for having to bus 4 hrs each way from Milford Sound.
