We loved First Light Travel from the first contact. Shelley was brilliant. All queries were answered promptly. Whilst in New Zealand we had to rearrange something and again Shelley dealt with it very efficiently. We would not hesitate to use first light travel again and have already recommend them to friends.

First Light Travel and specifically, Verity, were so helpful in planning our itinerary based on the things we wanted to do Everything went smooth and we enjoyed using our vouchers and looked forward to each of the next activities by looking ahead into the voucher book.

I kind of "fell into" dealing with First Light Travel when looking at websites trying to find things to do during our 6 weeks in New Zealand when we weren't on the Milford/Routeburn Tracks. The initial quick response really impressed me. Also the speed at taking our jumbled list of potential things to do and turning it into a thorough agenda with lodging and activities mapped out, yet free time to explore on our own (with a list of suggestions) was quite impressive. The add-ons of things that we didn't think we could afford (like the glacial helicopter ride, Doubtful sound cruise and Alpine Safari) were some of the highlights of the vacation. Also, the quick contact on any booking issues or changes made us feel like we were the only customer.

We discovered First Light on the Internet while searching for help in planning our trip to New Zealand. Even though we were making travel plans during the height of the season and with little time. Sophie gave us everything we wanted, within our budget. We loved everything.
