If you want to get the full flavor of New Zealand then I would suggest the Moa Trek 23 day Kakapo Tour. Moa Trek is a family company that concentrates solely on New Zealand tours so they know it inside out. Our guide, Andre was the ultimate guide. He was so knowledgeable about most aspects of New Zealand whether it be; history, business, agriculture, wine, food or activities.
The Kakapo is a activity filled tour but you can find more thrills through their optional activities supplement. If you are new to New Zealand and you want to see both islands in one tour I would suggest this one. If you have your heart set on Stuart Island, I would add a few days on the end to explore it.

What a great way to see the whole country! Outstanding service from our guide and driver, and wonderful narrative by our guide through all aspects of the culture and scenery of New Zealand.

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.

I was extremely happy with this holiday and especially as we were a group of people who instantly got on together. Tim made the holiday even more enjoyable. I would have no problem in recommending Moatrek in the future.

Thanks to you folks, we carried home colorful memories of a magical land and people who are warm, adventurous, hilarious, welcoming, and rightly proud of their heritage, present, and future.

This was THE BEST tour we have EVER taken! The attention to detail and the fantastic customer service was simply OUTSTANDING! Our tour guide and driver, Steve, was TERRIFIC!!! I highly recommend MoaTrek to anyone travelling to New Zealand or interested in tours. Accommodations were 4 or 5 stars and the daily activities were varied yet incredible! Go with MoaTrek! You will be VERY GLAD you chose them!!!

Also My husband is an AVID fly fisherman, and had always heard that fly fishing in New Zealand in January and February is fantastic! With your help, we booked an optional fly fishing excursion to check of an item on my husband's "bucket list". Our Moa Trek consultant, Caroline, gave me a several names and after persistence and perseverance, we were able to book our fishing trip for the final day we were in New Zealand. It was an OUTSTANDING SUCCESS!!! Thanks for going beyond the "call of duty" to help us with this!!!

Thank you Moa Trek and Matt Lysaght for showing me so much of your beautiful country. New Zealand is absolutely stunning and I felt that with this tour I got to see the best of it. My friends back home have been amazed at just how much of the county I got to visit. The tour was extremely well organised and Matt went out of his way to ensure that everyone on the tour was happy. He provided an excellent service and was extremely knowledgeable and I left knowing so much more about New Zealand. I cannot praise Matt's service enough, he was truly fabulous and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Moa Trek to anyone who wishes to visit New Zealand.

This was truly a trip of a life-time. Everything from day 1 to the very last day was incredibly well organised. The itinerary was varied and exciting; mountains, rainforests, lakes, homesteads, glaciers and hobbit chairs! Nothing was too much trouble for the guide, who went out of her way to ensure everyone in the group felt included and was happy.

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.
