Great Ocean Road Walk April 2016

'The Great Ocean Walk is one of the most varied and spectacular coastal walks I have ever undertaken.  The tour focussed on four days of highlights, based on the experience of the tour guides.  Highly recommended.'

New Zealand Ultimate

December - 2015

'I have just come back from an 11 day tour of New Zealand's South Island. Kia Ora. It was interesting and luxurious in both accommodation and transport. Other travellers were friendly and as interested in the places we stopped as I was. I'll never get over the beauty and the secrets of the place and it has left a lasting impression that will be hard to erase from my memory. I tried everything extra that I could just to add to the enjoyment. This included a small plane flight from Milford Sound to Queenstown, which gave me a perspective on the incredible country of the South Island.'
