Oh, where does one begin to start describing the amazing trip I experienced? Do I start with the knowledgeable, lovely tour guides or the awesome landscapes we traveled together or the delicious New Zealand foods and wines we tasted? Absolutely everything about this tour from the informative website that prepared us for the tour till we hugged our tour guides goodbye was perfect!!
Our intimate group size allowed us to have extra attention lavished upon us at every possible opportunity. Amanda and Clara were a perfect team seeing to our every need and then some. Amanda knew what type of special coffee beverage we liked in the morning and she had it ready for us when we arrived at the breakfast table. They both are great at making a tour group blend into one “fun family of new friends” on an adventure.
Speaking of adventures, even though we knew what was planned for the day’s activities there was always several additional surprises awaiting us like a picnic on the beach at sunset with a blanket covered with yummy treats and always a new wine to experience or a midnight walk in the dark to look for glow worms. When someone asks me what I liked best about this tour I honestly have to say that every single minute was great. The New Zealand landscape is unlike any other place in the world. Our tour guides schooled us about all the wonderful plants, animals, birds and other wonders of nature that the we saw on our daily hikes.
Oh yes, the hikes! This tour offered a variety of hiking trails that had spectacular views the the land, sea, mountains and wildlife. I could go on and on but you just have to go there to enjoy the beautiful country for yourself. I highly recommend this wonderful tour of the South of New Zealand because New Zealand Walking Tours knows how make you feel like a VIP! Thank you one and all.
