“Our family trip around the South Island was fabulous! Here are a few specifics:
The itinerary was well-thought-out, once we drove in "Bill" public transit for just relatively short spells at any given time before coming in an interesting place to hike, explore, picnic, etc. Was not ever there a spell where we sitting in excess of 1.5 hrs approximately.
"Bill" public transit would be a very comfortable ride, incidentally, allowing us to sit down with a number of people or perhaps alone. Public transit held 20 approximately, so we were only 12 in number plus our two guides. The home windows are large, permitting expansive views from the beautiful Nz landscape. We towed a trailer behind us its our luggage and food, therefore we weren’t sitting among or climbing over luggage or supplies.
Our guide Claire was a great driver, so we felt safe together with her in the wheel.
The range of encounters was exceptional! We visited four nature. We hiked 10 miles roundtrip to some glacial lake at Aoraki/Mt. Prepare Park. We hiked among sheep and cows (in just a couple of ft people!) at Mt. Ambitious Park and remained overnight inside a classic NZ "hut." We visited a wildlife preserve where we had the nocturnal kiwi, we had Fox Glacier we spent a few days in lovely Queenstown, canyoning, luging, and white water rafting we visited Puzzling World and located our way to avoid it of the very puzzling wooden maze. Our guides engaged our kids in regarding a driftwood fort on the beach around the Tasman Ocean. Our youthful, energetic guides also engaged many of us in playing "Go Back Home, Stay At HomeInch among giant boulders and fearlessly supported our kids in to the cold water of the cave, in which the children spied an eel! We visited a sheep farm, in which the kids required their turn attempting to herd sheep right into a corral, discovered sheep farming and also the dog’s instructions, and attempted their hands at shearing a sheep.
The meals was scrumptious, fresh and plentiful. Whether ready for us by our guides Claire and Mel, or offered to all of us in a restaurant where reservations have been made and repair was quick, the meals was uniformly excellent. Snacks were always on public transit. I was perfectly-given!
Our guides Claire and Mel were Remarkable. We were became a member of with a guide Steve for the hike in Mt. Ambitious, and that he was equally AWESOME! Their feeling of fun, their youthful energy, as well as their competence in handling the vehicles, cooking, mobilizing the audience, sticking to an agenda, etc. impressed us daily. Their understanding of the things NZ, remarkable ability to interact our kids in fun, tossing a rugby ball or playing hangman with dry erase markers around the home windows from the bus, made our trip the success it had become. We LOVED them!!!!”Michelle Ford – California, U . s . StatesMarch 2017
