New Zealand has always been at the top of the bucket list, but with so many stunning destinations it was hard to decide for our trip and a bit overwhelming. We were happy to have Chrissy, at First Light Travel help us to narrow it down and send us on our way. Our three week driving trip was truly spectacular and having everything mapped out, but also having the freedom to change our plans on our own, was ideal. It sounds crazy, but every single day was an adventure for our family.
We are already thinking about when we can return.

Our family had a memorable holiday in New Zealand in December 2019. This was made possible by Narissa Phipps, our Travel Consultant from First Flight Travel. She was extremely swift in her responses, pro-active in suggesting activities and ensured our comfort and safety throughout the holiday. She put together an amazing array of activities and detailed itinerary in a short span of time, and helped us finalize it.
Suggested itineraries were very detailed, listing out additional activities, if time permitted. We got a handy day-by-day account of where our holiday would take us, to the level of detailing how far apart two places were and how far we had to drive on a given day.
Such Planning to the hilt put us at tremendous ease and gave us great peace of mind. The activities and choice of hotels in each town / city was appropriate and suited our taste. We would give First Light Travel a huge Thumbs Up and will vouch for the fact that they are highly recommended.

Shelley at First Light Travel was awesome in putting together our South Island NZ itinerary. We are a family of four, with two teenage boys, aged 13 and 17, so wanted some adventure, whilst fitting in some relaxation and beautiful scenery. We already had an idea of what where we wanted to visit and some activities and Shelley was able to fine-tune out ideas for the better and made it an easy and seamless holiday. From the perfect accommodation for our family's needs (including kitchenettes in all motel rooms) to the hire car and pre-booked activities like rock climbing, cruises, gondola rides and zip lining. The choices are endless. The scenery is spectacular. I highly recommend Shelley and the team at First Light Travel, after a friend used them and recommended to me.
It saved us a lot of time and stress.

Thank you, Michelle for your help in planning a bucket list trip we never thought we would take! You helped us plan a pace that was just right for our time on the South Island. We are excited to come back to the North Island this year.

The trip was absolutely wonderful. All five of us loved it. Thanks for all your planning, suggestions, bookings and arrangements. It made it all work seamlessly and smoothly. It was also a real pleasure to work with you. You were responsive and helpful, which is important for such a long distance relationship and transaction.
Thanks again for all of your great service. It was really a pleasure working with you. My whole family heard me talk about Michelle so much, they felt they knew you!

Deb was FANTASTIC! From the start she asked me all the right questions about our family and what types of activities we wanted to do. She planned the trip absolutely perfectly! From the types of accommodations, to the car rentals, to the activities we did, to the special dietary restrictions (nut allergies and vegetarian) everything was exactly what we wanted for a very memorable family vacation. We loved having the detailed itinerary created by Deb and the voucher booklet. Each day she had meticulously planned out the drive times, the activities with descriptions, reminders to call places to confirm bookings, accommodation specifics. I honestly cannot recommend Deb and First Light Travel highly enough! You will be in GREAT hands with this travel agency! Thank you Deb for helping us create the most magical family trip, these memories will last a lifetime!

We had an amazing trip in NZ! Our First Light Travel itinerary was perfect for our family. We combined some very physical, active days with relaxing ones towards the end of our trip. We would highly recommend First Light Travel to anyone planning travel to New Zealand!

SUPER!! The team at First Light created the perfect combo of activities for our family of 5 adults on North and South Islands. They asked all the right questions to tailor activities and accommodations along our 2.5 weeks of travels. I am an avid traveler, very capable in travel planning myself, but started too late in planning our Christmas/New Year trip (6 months in advance - take note!) First Light managed to pull together excellent lodging for us, and took all pressure off - it was wonderful! I highly recommend First Light, our bookings were well organized, with much local knowledge added to the itinerary.

We can't thank Jo enough for the amazing holiday she arranged for us. The itinerary, the tours and experiences were perfect for our family. The accommodation was all excellent and just what we needed. We had the most wonderful holiday. Split between the 2 islands. We hit the ground running and we made the most of every single day. Our family motto on holidays is "if in doubt - do" and we certainly did. The scenery in NZ is breathtaking, the people are awesome and there is something for everyone!!
Thanks once again Jo.
