Salli really listened to what we were interested in seeing and doing. She was very helpful in suggesting activities we probably would not have found on our own. And she did this all in a very short time frame.
We loved Franz Josef glacier was definitely worth seeing. Walking through a rain forest to go see a glacier is absolutely phenomenal. The TranzAlpine Train was awesome! Coastal Pacific train. All the trains and the buses were a very enjoyable way to see the beautiful countryside. Corporate Cabs for private transfers made us feel like royalty.
Salli talked to us about our preferences and gave us an awesome trip!

Hi, Sofie! I hope you are well.
I know this is UNFORGIVABLY late, but here are some photos from the trip Jessica Barrett and I took to New Zealand that First Light Travel booked for us in 2017. We had the absolute BEST time doing all things Lord of the Rings related. We cannot wait to come back, now that our journey is a few years behind us. Please feel free to use these photos as you'd like!

Very professional services with all aspects of the trip being, accommodation, transport and activities well organised flowing seamlessly. We took a suggested destination itinerary from the First Light website and matched it to an activities package suggested in another itinerary and consultant Melissa Rauner made it all fit within our suggested budget.

Michelle was extremely helpful and responsive to all our queries. This was a trip we longed to take for a while and we wanted to get the feel for the North Island in just 9 days that we had to spend there. We couldn't have hoped for more! With Michelle's help we were able to nail our itinerary to get the best of what New Zealand has to offer – beautiful countryside, postcard-worthy sites, walks in the native bush, geothermal parks, glow-worm caves, unforgettable beaches, kayaking, long walks and great food and wine. Thank you so much Michelle and First Light Travel! With your help, we are quite ready for another adventure!

Chrissy Sun was amazing. She was flexible and accommodated my last minute trip! Literally we were still planning as I was flying towards New Zealand. This was the best trip of my life thanks to Chrissy! She created an adventurous and action packed trip, exactly what I was looking for. Everything was organized and easy to follow. She created the perfect itinerary for me!
I loved Hobbiton, Glow worm caves, Second half of the Lord of the Rings Tour in Wellington, Bay of Isles I loved the dolphins, White Water Rafting first time ever and it was a blast Taupo Kayaking Company was a blast but quite hard work, I loved the beauty I found in the hike in Rotorua as well as the Maori dinner, WETA Workshop. The trip was a dream come true.

Thanks to Shelley and First Light Travel for an amazing holiday in New Zealand! From the start, my experience with First Light could not have been easier. I simply mentioned how long I planned to stay and the types of activities I was looking for and voila! Shelly put together an itinerary that even had a native Kiwi I met on my holiday impressed.
I had an amazing, grassroots experience of this beautiful country filled with adventurous activities and unbelievable views! I highly recommend First Light Travel for anyone considering planning a holiday in New Zealand.
