What a wonderful time with a great organisation.Great value and brilliant hosts in Frankie and Robbie-John. It was our first long haul trip and the Ultimate Explorer met all expectations. Great value and quite happy with the camping a basic accomodatiion, all part of the adventure. At 60+ we fitted in well and had a great time. Thoroughly recomend the whole experience. Thanks a million.
It was awesome. Thank you so much Frankie and Robbie John for making me so comfortable and at home for this trip.
This trip has been amazing - I have seen so many amazing places and learnt that I really can do anything I set my mind to. Fantastic trip.
It was amazing! Perfectly planned tour with great optional opportunities. Great, guides, very helpful all the time.
Myself and my wife could not have asked for a better honeymoon. We have had experiences we will cherish for a life time.
The trip was awesome and far more full on than I expected - which was great! The bus journey was broken up perfectly with coffee and toilet stops. Frankie was insane, never stopped working, a lovely person who is always approachable! Best tour guide ever!!!
Best trip of my life!!
We had the most incredible honeymoon, met fantastic people from all walks of life, participated in amazing activities and once in a lifetime experiences all to the beautiful backdrop of New Zealand. NZ will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
This was my first ever outdoors/camping activity trip. I got to do lots of activities like Biking, hiking, kayaking, whale/dolphin watching, river rafting, skydiving, paragliding, Tongariro crossing, Routeburn Track hiking etc. In short it was an amazing experience, I’m glad I joined Flying Kiwi for this fabulous journey!!!
I would like to thanks Craig and Anna, they are awesome and were very helpful throughout the journey.
Had an amazing time with Frankie and Robbie-John. Was a fantastic tour packing so many activities in. The guides were brilliant and organised everything so smoothly and cooking some delicious meals!
Overall I thought the tour was an amazing experience and I had a wonderful time seeing what New Zealand had to offer. Frankie and Robbie John made the tour feel comfortable and were welcoming. Taking photos running through the field in fiordland was one of the most surreal moments in my life - thank you Frankie! I would recommend getting a bike as escaping the bus for a while was great, and the cycles were a beautiful way to exercise and also see the scenery. The fiordland campsite had a lot of sand flies and we were not told about this until they started biting - maybe stay in Te Anau for two nights? Or let people know sooner. Everything was closed on the public holiday in Wellington which could have been planned better, and there was in my opinion, not enough time in Christchurch (1.5 hours) to say we even stopped there and had a chance to tour the city. The dinners were amazing!! Very impressed by the healthy options and variety. Some people did not know they signed up to be on a camping trip and the guides could have been a bit more understanding when people wanted to upgrade - some people have never been camping before and this is a very new experience for them. I love camping and have been many times but also enjoyed an upgrade here and there. I would recommend this tour to anyone!!
Good food, tour guide, sights and organisation
Healthy and varied meals on tour. i feel like I have experienced and learnt so much in just 2 weeks. Great good and friendly stuff
The hole tour was well structured but we still had time for ourselves. The knowledge of both tour guides is very rich and they did an amazing job.
Visiting many locations efficiently, safe driving, fun atmosphere and excellent dinners
