MoaTrek tailored a trip that provided all the features that we were looking for. Every booked activity, meal and accommodation was delivered as promised. Our guide Graeme was well versed and articulated the cultural and natural history of NZ with style and humor. He is an excellent ambassador for NZ and a great representative of MoaTrek.
My first experience of a group tour. The tour was fantastic, people great and the tour guide Matt was full of information, which gave you a background to the history and geography of places you were visiting. The trip will stay in my memories for a long time to come.

Matt our Kiwi guide made the South Island come alive with his incredible knowledge of all things New Zealand. We loved the pace of the tour with many stops that allowed us to “stretch out” as well as learn about the history and culture. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

We had the most wonderful and memorable tour of the South Island. It could not have been bettered in any way from beginning - booking process through to the trip itself. Matt our guide and all Moatrek staff seemed to go above and beyond the call of duty to make our trip special. We found the whole trip amazing and Matt's character contributed greatly to this.
What a great experience! I was a little concerned that a tour would be rigid and impersonal, but this trip was perfect. It was great to not have to figure out the best places to go and how to get there – all done for me. The hotels were great and scenic, and our stops were beautiful and allowed us to see so much of the landscape and beautiful features New Zealand has to offer. Our Kiwi guide was brilliant! So much fun and really helpful. Thanks for making New Zealand a great experience!
Kia Ora ! On behalf of our family just wanted to pass big thanks to Matt for taking care and guiding us through our fantastic tour of the South Island! Everything went as planned and much more than expected. Thank you!
New Zealand is a spectacular country. The scenery is breathtaking. MoaTrek took care of all the details from start to finish. The accommodations were deluxe. Every part of this tour was outstanding. This is my second tour of New Zealand. As soon as my brother and I finished the first visit we knew we had to return and we chose Moa Trek again because we were so pleased. New Zealand is a place you dream about.
This was the first time we used a tour company while traveling and did not really know what to expect. MoaTrek was a perfect choice for us. They were attentive to our needs, easy to work with and responded to our questions. The trip itself was lovely. Each day's activities were well planned, extremely enjoyable, educational and interesting and really gave us a great sense of the South Island - its beauty, its history, its natural resources, the Maori culture and how that informed the development of the island. All of the accommodations were top-notch and the options for activities were well prepared and appropriate for our group. I would highly recommend MoaTrek to guide you through the New Zealand countryside.
MoaTrek delivered an excellent small group tour that was full of jaw dropping scenery and experiences with the added bonus of a knowledgable and local driver guide. I was very impressed and being a solo traveller thoroughly enjoyed being driven around with a group of like minded people. It was the perfect way to see some of the South island highlights.

I believe we had a wonderful overview of sites on the South Island but the main star of the trip was our tour guide Matthew who was exceptional. He offered so many insights about the sites we saw, as well as provided excellent information about NZ culture, history and politics. He MADE the trip fantastic. He appeared to enjoy his work and has a wonderful temperament for this role. We are ever so grateful we had him as our tour guide!
