I’ve never so in love with a country right away then I have with New Zealand and this is in big part thanks to Kiwi Ex. The stops they take you too are all spectacular and you meet the nicest most fun people from all around the world to travel with. My only negative of the trip is Happy Travels at the Nomads hostel in Auckland. They are professional scam artists who prey on first time travellers using fear tactics to book activities and get their commission. Only book your excurcions on the bus with the Kiwi driver. I had several drivers who were all amazing especially Dan and Dylan! My must do add on of the trip was to spend a night in mount cook as it was insanely beautiful there and my favourite activity was the tamaki Maori village overnight stay where I truly felt super close and bonded with my new friends from the bus. This trip is great for anyone from 18-30, especially solo travellers and nature lovers. I’ll never forget my time with Kiwi ex and the friends I’ve made. Best. Trip. Ever.
