Wonderful adventure

“I can see why everyone who's traveled to New Zealand absolutely loves it. It is a stunningly beautiful country with diverse topography and no predators to worry about. I especially enjoyed our group that we traveled with, most of which were people who we had never met before. Our guides were absolutely terrific, and both Graeme and Jaclyn were so accommodating, and we loved Jaclyn's meals/food. She really went out of her way to make delicious food for all, including a few vegetarians. Parts of the trip were definitely quite challenging, but gave us all a sense of accomplishment after. Would definitely recommend this tour and will be looking to book with Active again.”
