Kakapo 21 Day Tour

A small-group tour, with a knowledgeable, experienced and personable guide is, to my mind, an excellent way in which to explore a country in a limited timeframe; if the group is not restricted to travellers of a particular age group or status (e.g. mature singles), so much the more interesting. When it comes to New Zealand, it is hard to imagine that any company could arrange a better such tour than Moatrek.

Kakapo 21 Day Tour

Comprehensive, well-paced and planned itinerary , with superb accommodations. Exceeded our expectations for a first visit to New Zealand. Our guide, Andrew, was extremely knowledgeable about the landscape, flora and fauna, and his observations about history, agriculture, and exports were consistently borne out by other presentations we received. His love of New Zealand, and knowledge about every aspect of what we were observing and experiencing made this trip richly rewarding. He knew when to provide information and observations and when to let the group “rest”. He was attentive, warm and a joy to be with.

I was having such a good time I actually extended from 16 to 21 days because I felt I would be missing out if I didn’t! I had a fabulous time and would thoroughly recommend MoaTrek to anyone who wants to go to New Zealand. Don’t go on one of the big coaches, you won’t get to see nearly so much as you’ll only get to go to the places the coach can access, small tour buses can get to even more interesting places, and you won’t get the same level of attention from the tour guide. I had a fabulous time. New Zealand was on my bucket list for a long time, and it didn’t disappoint, but I would never have got to see, participate in or learn so much if it hadn’t been for MoaTrek, so a huge thank you!

As soon as we spent fifteen minutes with Matt, our tour guide, we knew we were in good hands. New Zealand is a fabulous country and we were delighted to have spent the three weeks seeing as much as possible. Couldn't imagine doing it in less time. Accommodations were great and the various places we stopped for lunch or dinner were always excellent. We hiked, biked and kayaked and couldn't get enough of the outdoors. The scenery speaks for itself, but Matt added his vast knowledge of the history and culture and really made it all come alive. The others on the tour were fun to be with and Matt "handled" us well. Well worth the trip half way around the world.

Touring New Zealand had been the number 1 item on my bucket list for a few years. We are so glad that we selected MoaTrek, as our expectations were exceeded. Hope that we can find another small group company to meet our new global number one that can come close to matching the MoaTrek overall experience. I would absolutely recommend Moa Trek. Paul was an outstanding driver/ tour guide. Everyone with Moa Trek that I communicated with was also outstanding.

This was the furthest distance and longest time we've been away from home in the UK and we were a little bit apprehensive to be spending so much money on the tour. From day one all the way through to when we were dropped off at the airport and waved our goodbyes, the tour was fantastic in every way. Tanya helped ease our worries about the tour and got us booked in with no hassle and a lot of useful information and Andrew, our tour guide, is just a fantastic guy with a lot of knowledge of the country but above all, was very approachable and helpful throughout the journey. New Zealand is a beautiful country and that was made better by the organised activities included within the tour price shared with a small and intimate group; not so big that you feel like cattle being herded from tourist spot to tourist spot but big enough to enjoy a diverse social group. We chose to pay for some of the additional activities but were never put under pressure to buy into them; it was our choice and well worth it. That aside, we do believe the tour is brilliant with enough activities even if we hadn't bought the extra activities; we were just feeling more and more adventurous as the days rolled by. We're back home now and already planning a return trip to NZ thanks to Moa Trek opening our eyes to the wonder of the country. Thank you!

Moa trek know their stuff and deliver where it counts delivering an unforgettable NZ experience. Thanks again!!

Also, our driver/guide Tim de Jong was exceptional, a mine of information, and a good leader with an excellent sense of humour. We think he went the extra mile on a number of occasions like offering shuttle bus trips into town when the hotel was a bit distant and specifically at Punakaiki he changed our hotel room - even after we told him not to bother - when he could see that we were struggling with steps. In Christchurch he gave us a guided tour which was not on the itinerary. We can't speak too highly of the service he provided.

Our 21 day trip to see the whole country was an exceptional experience, made more so by the fantastic tour guide. We feel we got a flavor of the history, culture and beauty of both island. We enjoyed everything! Our guide Matt's knowledge, humor, accommodation (like to coming to get us when we were caught in the rain on a hike), handling of all aspects of our trip (hotel registrations, luggage, special tours, etc.), tolerance and driving fair exceeded our expectations. He was a major contributor to our enjoyment of our trip.

The Kakapo 23 day tour of both North and South Islands gave us a fascinating insight into a wonderful country, assisted by a really knowledgable guide. It was not all serious activities and there was time for doing one owns thing. We felt the tour was structured without being restrictive. It was great, somewhat hectic at times but wonderful tour. We have no hesitation in recommending Moatrek for a small group active holiday.
