New Zealand and Samoa may not be a large nation but keep those expectations high because it has a lot of everything! Wildlife in the oceans that are literally jumping out of the water. Mountain tops whose peaks are busy in every season with skiing, hiking, and biking. Let us not forget famous bridges for bungy jumping, rivers with world-class rapids and wine regions that'll have your head spinning...

We allowing travelers to connect with locals
We offer self-drive tours, allowing travelers to explore at their pace and make stops en route to connect with the local people. We also opt for smaller accommodations on the islands who hire staff from nearby villages rather than booking large resorts.

    The Pros :
    We loved everything about the trip. It was nice to be met at the airport rather than having to find our own way into town and to be taken to the car rental depot with our luggage. What was amazing was to be able to travel through both the North and South Islands of New Zealand taking in the beautiful scenery and fresh air.
    The Cons:
    The only downside was purely of our own doing - not having enough time to really see everything. Having 2 nights in each place was great but occasionally we need 2 nights when we only had 1. Or even having 2 nights and still wanting more!! We'll just have to come back and do some of it again....

We loved the scenery and how friendly everyone was. Highlights had to be the light aircraft - whale watching in Kaikoura and the scenic flights over the volcanoes in Tongariro but the helicopter trip over the Franz Joseph, Fox and Tasman Glaciers was just out of this world!!! All the hotels were wonderful and exactly what we asked for. All in all a perfect trip - didn't want to come home! Thank you Carolyn!!!See more
