Shardul Mude and Neharika Vinod Tupkari, 11 Day Explore New Zealand, Travelled on 9th July 2017
Our tour was exactly as described. Lauren did an amazing job getting us what we wanted and was easy to contact and quick to reply. I would recommend friends travelling to NZ to contact New Zealand Coach Tours.
Angelia Knight-Adams and Frank Adams, Customised South Island Tour, Travelled on 12th June 2017
Thank you for such a wonderful and stress-free experience! It was so nice knowing that we didn't have to learn to drive on the left and knowing that all the arrangements were taken care of. Narissa was such a pleasure to work with.
