Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I think that a trip from the US to New Zealand is a big commitment and it makes sense to maximize your time there.  This Mondumo tour packed a lot into 2 weeks and provided an opportunity to see charming, breath-taking, and out-of-the way sites, as well as hitting the highlights of New Zealand cities.  I especially liked that we were able to experience the Maori culture.  I want to add that Colin Mairs is an exceptional guide/organizer and a very likable person. He was a big help to the tour members as we struggled with the effects of the COVID19 pandemic on our post-tour plans.

I have done quite a bit of international travel Over the years and this tour with Mondumo Tours was the best tour I have ever been on. Colin, the owner and guide of the 2-week New Zealand tour, was knowledgeable, thoughtful and a lot of fun. We toured the north and south islands and every stop, accommodation, as well as the food, was perfect. I had no complaints, only praise for this tour. If it weren’t such a long flight, I would go again in a heartbeat.

It is with great pleasure that I highly recommend Mondumo New Zealand Tours.
If you have never been to New Zealand, this is a great opportunity to see the sights in a short time span. Colin is very personable, organized and extremely helpful to the tour participants. We had heard that New Zealand is a beautiful country and now my husband and I can testify that it is.

As others have noted, Colin is a very good tour guide. He is organized, well prepared and able to manage a diverse group. We had toured Scotland with Colin in the past and so it was an easy choice when we found out about NZ. He does his research ahead and has informative and entertaining facts and legends about each of the places - not only the destinations stops, but also many of the places we passed through.

We spent two weeks touring New Zealand with Colin Mairs as our tour guide. The tour was fantastic and Colin was exceptional. He was very well organized, well informed, and very approachable. If you had any question he would immediately give you the answer or research and find the answer. The biggest surprise was that he sang his favorite Scottish songs while we rode the bus. Well done Colin!

The key to a great small-group tour is the guide, and Colin Mairs is a very good guide. You get a concise, thorough tour of incredible New Zealand led by a man who knows how to have a great time while dealing with all kinds of people. His tour takes you to the highlights and some off the beaten path sights in this incredible country. New Zealand is a bucket-list place (was for me!) and now after this tour I could see going back over and over. We actually met the guide, Colin, when he led our small-group tour of Scotland. When he said he was going to also be leading tours of New Zealand -- we were IN. Knowing this guide and his company would be leading the tour sealed the deal for us, and we didn't regret our decision.

My husband and I took a tour of New Zealand with Mondumo in March 2019. We had a blast! Our tour guide, company owner Colin Mairs, is an excellent tour guide and super nice guy. He somehow manages to be very laid back and relaxed while making sure that everything goes smoothly. We saw a wide variety of sights during the two week tour, and everything was perfectly coordinated. The local guides and bus drivers that Colin engaged were superb. Colin, himself, provides lots of local knowledge in a very enjoyable and humorous style.

Most of the people on our tour had traveled with Colin before (he also does tours for Rick Steves), which says a lot. My husband and I would love to tour with Colin again!
