I saw a presentation at my local library in 1971. It took me 45 years to finally take the trip. This was truly a dream come true. Matt was an exceptional tour guide. He gave us so many interesting facts about New Zealand. Wish I could remember everything he told us. I am happy I chose the Kakapo 23 day tour. The food, accommodations, people everywhere we went were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. It was a pleasure meeting the other people on the tour. It was a great group. Thank you so much. I have been telling friends this is the way to go.
