Sarah Futernick and Matthew Peven's Honeymoon

12 Nov 2019

My husband and I debated for months where we should go for our honeymoon, but after our first call with Toni from First Light Travel, it became clear to us that New Zealand was the right choice. From the very beginning, Toni was friendly, informative, and just incredibly helpful. We quickly learned that New Zealand had so much to offer, with locations and excursions that fit perfectly with our personalities and desired trip. Toni took the time to listen to our preferences, understand our time frame, and respect our budget. We made a few tweaks to our itinerary, but it didn't take much work at all to craft the perfect 2 week excursion.

While the planning process itself was noteworthy, our actually trip exceeded our expectations in every way. Travel was not only easy, but enjoyable. Ever taxi, transfer, booking and reservation went smoothly and on time. Every hotel was stayed at was friendly and accommodating, and the materials prepared by First Light (and given to us upon arrival) provided just the right amount of detail to make sure our trip went off without any issue. We fell in love with New Zealand, and it's with thanks to First Light Travel for making sure we made the most of our time in such a beautiful country. We really couldn't be any happier with our experience!

Anita Del Corpo and Julian Fera's Honeymoon

10 Mar 2019

We are Anita & Julian from Canada and we highly recommend booking your New Zealand vacation with First Light Travel. From the beginning to the end our experience was an amazing one. Michelle took her time to listen to our needs and wants and booked us an itinerary that was perfectly planned and well thought out. From each accommodation to our car rental to our boat cruise in Milford Sound, our first time visiting New Zealand will always be a memorable one. Booking with First Light Travel made it easy for us to enjoy our vacation without having to worry about all the little tiny details while we were there. We were able to soak up every amazing minute of it!!

Alex & Kelley Ehrlich's Honeymoon

Wow, what a truly amazing experience, First Light Travel put together for our honeymoon. With very little input, other than knowing we wanted to experience the entire island in a 2 week period, she was able to plan a once in a lifetime trip. A trip that met and exceeded all of our expectations. From the wine tours on Waiheke Island and around Nelson, the kayaking and hiking around Abel Tasman, the helicopter ride to the top of a glacier near Queenstown, the stunning beauty of the Milford Sound on a fly/cruise/fly day trip to the round of golf along Lake Wakatipu with The Remarkables as a backdrop.

We cannot recommend the team at First Light Travel enough. Thank you for the countless memories!

Megan Jones & Amir Asiaee's Honeymoon

15 Mar 2018

We used Shelly at First Light Travel for our special honeymoon to New Zealand. It was my first time working with an agency for a trip and now I'm hooked! I'm a very good planner myself but having somebody take care of the details was a dream. In particular, there was a cyclone while we were in New Zealand and First Light immediately arranged a Plan B for those days and made sure we knew which roads were closed when. The flexibility of the self-drive itineraries really was ideal – we had enough planned ahead but didn't feel like we were constantly “on the clock” and could adjust our driving schedule to how we felt or stay slightly longer in a place if we liked it. I chose First Light because they demonstrated that they care about unique, non-cookie-cutter experiences, eco-consciousness, and contributing back to the local economy.

Courtney Ruscin & Matthew Hengemuhle's Honeymoon

12 Dec 2017

Because of at First Light Travel, our 2-week honeymoon to New Zealand was seamless. We didn't have an issue with any booking and it was like she read our minds when booking all accommodations and activities for us. The mix of high adrenaline activities like bungy jumping, mixed with a fun afternoon of sipping wine while biking through Marlborough was the perfect mix for us. We never would have been able to see and do as much as we did in 15 days if it weren't for her.

I would highly recommend First Light Travel if traveling to NZ, you will not be disappointed!

This was a very professional and transparent experience. There were no hidden fees or secrets and all the activities and accommodations were just as we expected. No surprises (except for the champagne in some of the rooms for our honeymoon) and that is just how we like it! It was just the right pace for us and all the activities were up to our standards. We had an amazing time and would go back in heartbeat!
