Kakapo 23 Day Tour

It was an unbelievable trip. New Zealand is a gorgeous country and everyone was nice. Moa Trek was the right choice for us since driving on the left side of the road was not an option. (And the roads were more narrow and curvy then anticipated.) With MoaTrek we got to see and experience the entire country. The accommodations were lovely and the private lunches were a highlight. An outstanding value!!!!

Bob and I came here for the trip of a lifetime and that's just what we got and more. We fell in love with New Zealand through the eyes of our fabulous guide, Em. She was so knowledgeable, energetic, funny and a fantastic story teller. Oh, and she was a good driver, too. Our group was wonderful and we felt like we were leaving family at the end. Each day we said this was the highlight of the trip and then we would say the same thing the next day. And you know each day was just another day in paradise. Loved it.

This is the absolutely best way to see New Zealand. Fabulous informed, organized and humorous guide, excellent accommodation and we went to all the best places. No other tour would include a farm visit with the most amazing hosts and lunch. This was a trip of a lifetime that exceeded every expectation and we fell in love with New Zealand.

This trip exceeded all of our expectations! Em was a fabulous tour leader. She was so knowledgeable and we loved her stories about growing up in this beautiful country. I can’t imagine that we would gotten to experience all of the wonderful activities that we participated in if we had done this trip on our own. Great weather, great people, great memories!

I loved the added special actives that you do not see on other tours like the farm/ garden visits, the boat ride and hot pools on Lake Rototti and the kayak paddle out on the west coast. Our guide Matt was absolutely wonderful. He had so much information to share and was so knowledgeable on the history, geology and the fauna. Do not think i could have ask for anyone better. His sense of humor and interaction with the group was spot on.

Our 23 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.

I just wanted to say what a fabulous trip I have had loved every minute of it. It’s been a busy trip and not had time to sleep so much to see and do. Loved it. Paul was great and I am going to miss his knowledge not only of the island but in life. Please thank him again a real gem.  I hope that one day I will be able to come back to your beautiful country. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon love from Jackie Patel.

I had a wonderful time. The trek itinerary was informative and interesting with just the right blend of tourist sites and hidden treasures. The Kiwi guide kept us all entertained with her knowledge and stories of New Zealand life. New Zealand is awesome!

MoaTrek not only got the big details right but got the little ones right as well. Our guide Marilyn was brilliant and always available. She could not have done more and made the trip. I have no problem recommending MoaTrek and would be delight to use them again. Bless you all.
