In our first visit to New Zealand our objective was to see as much as possible in the time available to us. This tour met this objective fully and we saw beautiful landscapes, fascinating wildlife, enjoyed great New Zealand food and wine with a great range of activities of all kinds from the most to least energetic. We were supported by a knowledgeable tour guide for whom nothing was too much trouble. Our guide Marilyn had just the right manner and attitude to deal with all the kinds of situations which could arise on such a tour. She worked very hard to make our visit as relaxed as possible and was especially knowledgeable about the terrain we travelled over. Thus we got to see many places which in a larger group tour or travelling by ourselves we would never have known about. I highly recommend this tour.
