“This trip encompassed everything I had wanted to experience in New Zealand and more - helped by excellent guiding by experienced Exodus leader Ian and supported by Pete - and perfect weather conditions. If you want to see the highlights of both islands at a reasonable price, then this is the trip for you! Just be prepared for long days on the minibus, which are unavoidable unfortunately.”
