Too little time in New Zealand 0 , CA, United States, May 2023
A wonderful one-week trip through the beautiful North Island of New Zealand. We came away wanting more. Our tour leader, Fernando, and coach driver, Matt, were capable and caring throughout. Matt did a terrific job driving us through flooded roads from the Bay of Islands to Auckland.

Highlights were our visits to the Waitangi Treaty Site, the Hobbiton ...read more Movie Set, and the Te Puia Maori cultural experience. Included meals were consistently good; however, stops for lunch "on your own" that left us with too little time to find a good meal in unknown small towns were rather disappointing. Hotels were clean, and had friendly staff, but were not the best -- bathrooms in particular had too little space and were not well designed.
Tour guide and driver were excellent! 0 , WA, Australia, Sep 2015
Tour guide and driver were excellent! They were very upbeat and made the trip run smoothly. Michelle at Global Journeys made everything so easy I would definitely recommend her/them.
