Our trip to New Zealand was absolutely amazing. The accommodations were all top notch and beautiful places to stay. The hosts were personable and very accommodating. Everything was extremely organized and clearly communicated to us. We appreciated the fact that Zicasso had a packet with all of the information along with maps waiting for us at the hotel. The vouchers, the phone numbers of the activity companies and the directions all made traveling through New Zealand an extremely pleasant experience. We would highly recommend Zicasso and would definitely utilize their services if we travel to New Zealand in the future.
The most enjoyable parts of the trip were the activities planned, i.e. Whitewater rafting on the Kaituna, Waitomo Caves, kayaking through Cathedral Cove and the Skytower jump. Every guide was amazing, very professional and made our safety number one. In addition, we decided to bungy jump at the last minute, which was quite thrilling. We loved all of the diverse restaurants and food available throughout Auckland and New Zealand. We especially liked Ika Seafood in Auckland. The owner was extremely personable and spent a lot of time talking with us and describing all of the various flavors of the fish available in New Zealand. We love that Auckland is so diverse. We met people from all over the globe and so enjoyed getting to know new friends. What a spectacular, beautiful country. The owners of the Bed & Breakfast we stayed at were absolutely delightful. One taught our daughter to use a spinning wheel and the shared his homemade beer and jam and they made the most delicious breakfasts. We actually stayed up until wee hours of the morning talking and sharing life stories. We absolutely loved these folks.
We would definitely try to extend our trip. Eight days was just not enough to see everything. We also would love to visit the south island. Because we crammed so much into 8 days, we spent a lot of time in the car. I would have preferred to spend more time in Whittianga relaxing on the beaches and kayaking at the end of the trip. It was a very serene and peaceful place and we so enjoyed the Bed & Breakfast we stayed in.
