For mature travellers planning a bus tour to South Island, I can highly recommend Moa Tours who are very well organized and take care of you from the moment you leave home. "Southern Beauty" appealed to me as I wanted to see Milford Sound one more time having last been there 25 years ago. The scenic flight from the Sound over the Alps to Queenstown was definitely the highlight for me! What really made this trip so interesting was our wonderful knowledgeable guide Tim, who was also a very good driver, attentive and caring of his passengers and always punctual. He even made a special stop for me in order to take photos of lupins which lined the road.

My husband and I have just completed our Southern Beauty tour with Moa Tours. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We have never been to that part of NZ before nor have we ever toured with Moa previous. Our guide/driver Tim was outstanding. Great depth of knowledge, his driving was excellent and courteous to other road users, he was faced with a couple of difficulties which he handled perfectly and was so kind and helpful with the older passengers. Tim has a wonderful sense of humour and was great fun to be with. The accommodation was very good and we were very well fed. I would thoroughly recommend Moa Tours and hope you are lucky enough to have Tim as your guide :-)

I went on my first, ever guided tour with Moa on the Southern Beauty tour. Very well organisesd, especially when we had to change the itinerary because of the West Coast floods. Tim our guide was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and experienced and being on a small bus he could take us places bigger buses could not go.He was very patient and understanding of the mature ages of the travellers and catered for the wishes of the people from walkers to those who liked to see sites from the bus. He always kept us well informed of the days activities and times to be at bus etc. The highlight would have to be the plane flight though the mountains from Queenstown to Milford on a glorious day and also being able to see Mt Cook in all it's beauty and to walk to top of the Tasman Glacier.

Even though I have been to most of these places before I thought it was a wonderful tour by bus as you see, do and learn more about the places visited. Well done Moa and Andrew Milton who was a great leader with empathy and consideration for all concerned. Thank you for a great tour.

This tour was just fabulous. Overall, it was a good group of people. We all had the same sense of doing it for the group, and all did what was expected. No-one was ever late, for example. Our tour guide, Andre, was a super young man. Gentle and humble, very organised, attentive, knowledgeable, a good driver, humorous... I think we all loved him! We were sooooo lucky with the weather. It was mostly glorious. It would have been a good trip anyway I'm sure, but Central Otago and the Coast in autumn, with the sun shining ... hard to top that anywhere. The length of the trip was good. 9 days - you felt as if it was a real holiday. Just right, really. Asked about our favourite things, I find it hard to answer. I always like the thing we are doing at that particular time. I did love the little plane trip, and Okarito was almost spiritual. And seeing Aoraki Mt Cook from both sides of the alps - utterly magnificent. Oh, and the history of Denniston... Really, I enjoyed every experience. Oh, and being picked up and dropped off literally at my front door, was wonderful. It's often those little things that make a difference. And the van driver at the Auckland end was excellent too. All up, it was a great tour, with a great guide.
