NZ Epic Journey Kiwi Trip

“I started my NZ journey with a throat/chest issue; however, Craig, Sarah and the other eleven guests refused to allow that to dampen my spirits. For 20 years I looked forward to visiting NZ outdoors and found the perfect professional company to tour with. Everything came together in such a great way even with a couple of hard rain days. Unfortunately our chopper rides were cancelled but two days of seeing Mt Cook from Brahmer Station more than made up for that. The trip plan allowed us the maximum time in places others probably don't get to experience. Although my fellow travelers had such enthusiasm for NZ's endless beauty the real trip success was due to Craig and Sarah. Professional yes but their ability to be one of us, coach us, feed us, advise us, shepherd us, greet us and entertain us was truly what made this Epic such a success.”
