We took New Zealand Trails' World Heritage Tour in December of 2019. The trip was well organized and we felt very well looked after by Hayley, who was our main guide and driver. Some very wet weather forced some on-the-spot adjustments to our tour itinerary, and route, which Hayley handled very adeptly. We also had beautiful sunny days - they were not all wet. This was an active tour, with plenty of opportunities for walking and hiking while enjoying the scenery of New Zealand's south island. We would not hesitate to use New Zealand Trails again.

It's hard to pick a favorite part of the trip because it was all amazing. We started out with the Sweet North Tour then headed down to the South Island for the Pure South Tour. Both were great tours, but the Pure South was definitely my favorite. I think the South Island of New Zealand is the most beautiful country I have ever seen. We were blessed with fantastic weather even on Milford Sound, the activities were varied with plenty of hiking choices, biking, kayaking and even a jet boat. The scenery was unbelievable and there was plenty of wildlife. Our guides Haley and Finn on the South Island and Sam and Libby on the North were fun, knowledgable, and seemed to always pull a surprise out of their backpack such as a bottle of champagne or a thermos of coffee at the end of a hike. We learned so much about the country and culture of this beautiful island. The food was great with a combination of restaurants and guide prepared food. I would highly recommend these tours and this company. We traveled in February of 2020 returning home on March 9th at that time blissfully unaware of what the rest of 2020 was going to hold. So glad we got this trip in!

The "best" part of our adventures with NZ Trails was incredibly executed experience provided by our trip leaders, Haley and Megan. Every day was filled with history, culture, humor, remarkable vistas and great companions in the van. We hiked, swam in Milford Sound, hiked on a glacier, explored an ice cave, traveled on remote byways and we're fed delicious food. Madeline and I are forever recalling our adventures and feeling grateful we were able to explore NZ with such an exceptional crew.

What drew me to New Zealand Trails was their variety of packages and experiences. What got me to book were their people. From start to finish, they are the nicest, hard-working, honest, ethical and fun-to-work-with professionals you will ever meet. And forget about finish. There is no finish. We will schedule again in a few years. From the start, they sought out and listened to the needs of my wife and I. We don't like to ask for anything different than the group, but they care. They want you to enjoy the experience. While my wife and I are still excellent hikers, age has made us less than excellent at sleep. Somehow, they found a way to accommodate us so we would be comfortable. Jodi was beyond fabulous. In fact, everyone that my wife and I worked with was wonderful. There must be a little village in New Zealand that rears adventurous children into fabulous adults for New Zealand Trails to recruit its workers and guides. If you choose New Zealand Trails, you will have an adventurous, comfortable, and safe trip ... You can trust New Zealand Trails. Enjoy and safe travels.

We would repeat our Short South Trip again. It was perfect. The destinations, food, and lodging were excellent. The tour guides were unbelievable - where did they get such incredible people? My wife and I will definitely be back once this virus situation gets under control. We fondly remember our trip and tell everyone we know about it.
