Merlina Lee & Mariana Senikuraciri, Southern Highlights Tour, Travelled on 2nd October 2019
It was a well organized and hassle free tour. Thank you very much. Will definitely recommend and book again with you.
Joanne Kelley, Grand Pacific Tours 19 Day New Zealand Showcase, Travelled on 20th September 2019
The only way I can describe my experience on this tour is to say it was one of the best ever tours I've taken. I've long hoped to visit New Zealand, and had it not been that I was searching for a company to use to book 2 clients on a South Island...
John & Vivienne Gibson, Kirra Tours 8 day Classic Northern Discovery - Early Bird Special, Travelled on 9th September 2019
Enjoyable! Our driver Ross was very knowledgeable and the bus was comfortable.
