Rosslyn & Dereck

Like many others, our planned trip to New Zealand began a couple of years ago. We were fortunate to find First Light Travel, who worked with us to make our dream trip come to fruition.  Our wish was to tour the North Island for a month via motorhome and then, when my husband had to return home to his job, I wanted to spend three weeks touring the South Island.                                                                  

First Light arranged the motorhome rental, planned our route and booked our full service holiday parks for the month long tour of the North Island. They also booked two dive days and some other excursions, including the amazing visit to Hobbiton and a fun filled Waitomo Glow Worm adventure. We requested a change of venue for one stop during our trip and another at the end of my stay and First Light made those changes happen seamlessly. We had a major challenge, at the end of our stay on the North Island - one that was beyond First Lights’ control - and, even though there were many other people they were assisting, due to horrendous weather challenges, the situation was rectified immediately for us.                                                                                                                                                                     

For my tour of the South Island, First Light found me a 10 day bus/train excursion that allowed me to sit back and relax enjoying a once in a lifetime guided adventure and also arranged train travel, hotels and a couple of sight-seeing adventures for the final leg of my trip exploring Kaikoura and Bleheim before returning home. Jamie Boyce, and her team at First Light Travel, did an amazing job helping us plan and make our visit to New Zealand most memorable. We highly recommend them for all your travel needs in New Zealand.
