Feb 2019 • Couples
My husband and I did 2 Cheeky Kiwi Travel tours in February 2019 and we enjoyed both trips immensely. Hats off to the best tour guide, Kreig Leitchze, who made our trips so memorable with snacks, picnic lunch at the Cathedral Cove, a bottle of New Zealand red wine, cheese, etc. He was so pleasant, knowledgeable and accommodating that we hit it off right from the start! A trekker like my husband, they exchanged stories about their nature walks and are now planning to do some treks together in the future. We booked a small group 2-day North Island Favorites Tour and we were very much surprised to learn that we were the only ones! Felt like a private and personal tour! We were with 2 other young kids (brother & sister team) in the other tour, Coromandel Wanderer Tour, and it was equally wonderful! Highly recommend both tours! Expect to be wowed while keeping your mouth closed and savor the beauty of God’s creation all over New Zealand! Ask for Kreig as your tour guide! You won’t regret it!!!
