“Vanessa was an excellent guide and did a great job accommodating everyone's needs. She pushed those who were up for the challenge and supported those who needed it. I don't think I've ever been fed so well while vacationing! There was a great balanced of amazingly cooked meals, some of which even related to the days activities (pancake breakfast when we visited the pancake rocks) as well as great explanations and tasting of traditional kiwi foods, not to mention the Tim tam slam . There were a few hiccups involving the vehicle/trailer, which, I think, ended up bringing the group closer together. Vanessa handled it with poise. Amazing trip in a beautiful country!”
