Reviews of Contrasts: Two Strikingly Different – Comfortable Hikes

We are avid hikers, and the focus of our first 3 1/2 week trip to New Zealand was to do three of the Great Walks-the Tongariro Crossing, the Milford Track and the Abel Tasman Track. Natalie helped us organize and book these hikes, with exploratory days on both the North and South Islands and a wine tour in between. She also helped us organize transport by train, bus, plane and local taxis, so we didn't have to drive on the "wrong" side of the road. This trip only whetted our appetite for NZ hiking and we hope to return. We would highly recommend Natalie and First Light Travel for those who want a customized, unique tour of this beautiful country!

The travel we made through New Zealand was great and all the suggested activities are to be remembered by us. During the cyclone your assistance was great and you really took care of us. This is what service is in CAPITAL LETTERS.

We were most pleased with your service and particularly that of our consultant, Jo Taylor. Superbly good service in every respect from Jo would be an understatement. She was pleasant to deal with, in fact, most congenial, incredibly efficient, very knowledgeable and thoroughly professional throughout. We cannot say enough good things about Jo. She was a total joy to work with and she did an outstanding job for us in every way. She clearly gets a 5***** platinum rating from us!

Our travel agent Victoria was great. Our itinerary was tailored to our budget and interests. The trip package received was well organized and easy to use. We had no problems with transportation ( car, train and flights), the accommodations were great and all trip coupons were well received ( didn't need to worry about bringing cash). Overall experience was great, would

We would definitely use First First Travel again.
