Jo did a fantastic job at preparing our itinerary and surprised us all with all the wonderful excursions! We had a group of 9 ranging from ages 4.5 to 67, Jo made the whole trip very easy to follow and enjoy! It was extremely stress free and all the accommodations were fab! I don't think I would've done a better job myself if I planned everything! All our excursions planned were amazing! And because we had no expectations, everything exceeded our expectations!! (if that makes any sense!) Will definitely go through Jo / First Light Travel again if we head back to NZ (which I'm sure we will!) and highly recommend them to anyone who wants it stress free if planning their trip to NZ! Just tell them your desire and they will make it happen! So glad I found them on the internet! Thank you Jo for your wonderful planning!

Shelley was an exceptional travel agent.  Having not been to NZ or Melbourne AUS we really needed the type of expertise she provided.  When our travel to NZ was delayed, she was excellent managing our schedule and re-booking required activities.  She was quite pleasant to work with and very timely in her responses.  I highly recommend her and the firm to others.

Our honeymoon to New Zealand was incredible! First Light Travel and their Consultant Amelia Riwai were brilliant. The Itinerary, Activities and Accommodation was exactly what we wanted. Amelia was fantastic with her communication throughout the planning and travel process. This made our honeymoon stress free so that we could enjoy every moment. We cannot recommend you enough!

When I wanted to add a week in Australia to our tour of New Zealand I was referred to Kasey Yee at First Light travel. She asked me how long we wanted to be in Australia, where we wanted to go and how much we wanted to spend. She totally nailed it. From the wonderful lodging and the great excursions, we saw enough of Australia in our short one week to wet our appetite for future trips. While we are generally not city people my husband really wanted to go to Melbourne, we had no idea how big a city it was. The most delightful tour of our whole trip was the Hidden Secrets Tour of Melbourne where we were given an insider's introduction to the city and its charming arcades and shops. We explored so many things in our short trip. We saw the animals of Australia, a penguin parade, a rainforest, the 12 Apostles, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Sydney Opera House. It was all a little exhausting but it was fabulous.

I had never used an agent before, but Shelley did a fantastic job getting to know us first via email and then via phone, then putting together a near-perfect itinerary for our 7-week New Zealand road trip adventure! Having our itinerary booked and paid for ahead of time made for a stress-free holiday once we were there. The pacing was just right too — a 3-4 hour drive between each location, then usually staying two or three nights at each accommodation.

Dear Jo,

We had a wonderful time in nz thanks to your terrific advice, help, and planning of such a good itinerary. The trip was great and we want to thank you for your work in making this such a memorable experience. We will definitely use you again if we return to nz and will tell all our travel friends about First Light Travel. Your attention to lodging, places of interest, and transportation, all made the the trip so much easier than if we had tried to do this on our own. All you promised was delivered and the ease of contacting you made planning so simple.

Thanks again for your invaluable help.

First Light Travel and particularly Michelle put together a really terrific vacation for us. Overnight stops of more than one day allowed for exploration and also afforded the ability to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

We would highly recommend that anyone with only a 2 week holiday limit and a healthy travel budget use First Light Travel to create an itinerary. Great scenery, people, food and experiences.

Jo helped me plan my sabbatical vacation to New Zealand. I didn't have time to research and plan my trip. I was on the internet trying figure out what I was going to do in New Zealand and happened upon their website by chance. We chatted and then we spoke on the phone. I told her what my husband and I like to do and she planned an itinerary for us and we made some tweaks to it. She was very responsive to all my questions and I'm glad I used her. We had an amazing vacation filled with great memories!

An experience of a lifetime. There is so much in the vastness of New Zealand and having Rhodri help us plan was he best decision we ever made. It was effortless, fun, and packed with activities. Would definitely do it again.
