First Light Travel put together a wonderful trip for us to New Zealand. The itinerary had us doing things that we have never done before like kayaking in Abel Tasman National Park and heli-hiking on a glacier. I am not sure if I would have done these things if I had planned the trip on my own. I do know it would have taken a lot of effort to put everything thing together on my own so I thought it was definitely worth it to use a local travel agent who knew the country. I had compared this trip to a fully guided trip and feel that we got more of our money worth doing a trip this way. We like traveling independently so this made the planning easy and the support was great. We had a couple of the tours canceled because of weather so having an agent to call to make other arrangements was great.

I am very satisfied with Amelia's plans for touring New Zealand, as well as her quick response to our needs throughout the holiday trip. New Zealand is a very Green and the emphasis on preserving the natural environment is very much appreciated. Foods were so fresh and tasty, that I wish I could bring New Zealand home to the US.

Chrissy, our consultant really listened, offered lots of helpful information suggestions and advice. We were impressed from the get go when she called us to chat about what we were interested in and how she could help. After several itineraries and conversations, the perfect plan was in place. Chrissy was never far away and we felt totally supported before we headed to the airport and flying back home to the Yukon. The system of a detailed daily itinerary and vouchers was easy to use and worked perfectly. Accommodations were top-notch and suited us well. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending First Light Travel and when we return to explore the North Island..we know who to call!

Thank you First Light Travel for a wonderful journey and experience. Thank you for the wonderful memories I brought back to the United States to share with my family and friends. You made my trip so much pleasure and full of great memories I will remember forever.
Booking was extremely easy even though it was made last minute. Christine “my agent” went out of her way to accommodate my interests, she also came up with the best price to fit my budget - without compromising my interests. I had the most wonderful time in New Zealand.
I absolutely recommend First Light Travel, they are very friendly and accommodating both budget and interests.

First Light Travel truly enabled us to have a vacation of a lifetime in New Zealand! My husband & I were able to experience so much & made memories that will remain some of our favorites. Whether is was bungy jumping from Kawarau Bridge, kayaking Doubtful sound, trekking on Franz Josef glacier, or black water canyoneering/glow worm cave exploring, we felt alive, safe, & well cared for!
Our coordinator, Jo, was so helpful in organizing our trip. We greatly appreciated the personal insight into New Zealand & the company's native feedback. Thank you First Light Travel for making all of our New Zealand dreams come true!

It is Nancy Patterson - Colleen Clower's sister. We just arrived home from the most incredible trip - thank you so much!!! I LOVE New Zealand. I have never met such nice people and seen such a beautiful place. It was the most exciting trip of my life - once in a lifetime event. Thank you for everything you did to make this trip so special.
I definitely want to go back to New Zealand - there was so much we didn't get to see because we just didn't have the time. Would still like to buy you lunch or dinner if we come back.
