- This tour showed all the highlights of an amazing country. Lots of walks additional to the published itinerary. The landscapes were diverse and fascinating. Flora and fauna fabulous - tree ferns in abundance, "garden" plants in their native environments, the singing of the bell bird are real memories.
Natural parks abound and the addition of Abel Tasman was a bonus. We experienced Milford Sound on possibly the wettest day of the year - but that swelled the waterfalls to absolute torrents.
Excellent leadership thanks to a long time resident German guide - who knew everything about the island which he has loved for over twenty years.
