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 Jo and First Light Travel to anyone planning travel to New Zealand!

Our trip to New Zealand was everything we thought it would be and more! The accommodations and tours were exactly what we wanted. From the Hobbiton tour to the Marlborough wine region to hiking in multiple national parks our varied interested were satisfied. This trip would not have been possible without Jo Taylor's assistance. Thank you! We will recommend First Light Travel to everyone!

We had such a wonderful experience working with First Light Travel for our trip to New Zealand! Jo was FANTASTIC, and helped us plan the perfect vacation and honeymoon. We were so pleased with all the the fun activities, comfortable accommodations, and detailed planning that she did for us. She listened to all of our ideas and preferences, and created an incredible vacation package that we never would have been able to put together ourselves. And she made the process so easy and stress-free. Every detail was extremely well thought out and executed, right down to the itinerary and travel materials she mailed to us. Most of all though, Jo was an absolute pleasure to work with! We cannot thank Jo and First Light Travel enough for such a positive experience and the memorable vacation they put together for us!

My sister and I had the trip of a lifetime organised by First Light Travel which involves us driving around the South Island of New Zealand for a two week holiday. From the initial phone call and emails, the service I received was to the highest standard. We were in contact with Kasey Yee who couldn’t have been more helpful in planning the trip which was catered to our specific criteria. Within a few days of giving Kasey an idea of the type of trip we wanted (adventure holiday with sightseeing and not too many long hikes), she had organised the perfect itinerary for us. There was always the option to change anything that we weren’t happy with but we didn’t feel the need to change anything at all. Kasey made the whole process extremely easy for us and I couldn’t recommend this option enough if you are like us and didn’t want to spend months planning every fine detail of the holiday. Really had the best holiday and it couldn’t have been less hassle for us.

We used First Light Travel for our month's stay in New Zealand. Somewhat timid at first to fork over the money to someone unseen and unknown but it all worked out perfectly. The back and forth went very smoothly, changes were accepted without any fuss, and they handed us a perfect vacation that was hassle free. We referred to their itinerary sheet as “the bible”; it was very detailed. They suggested things we might enjoy in addition to the golfing aspect of the trip which was our main intent. The best recommendation I can give is that at the end of the trip we really didn't want to go home, even with the constant travel we had a relaxing fabulous time because First Light Travel made it easy, and we knew they always had our backs if something went wrong.

We went for a 1 week dive holiday where we used a rental car to get around. First light gave us a very good plan for the entire trip with an excellent mix of overnight stays and dive spots on the north part of the North Island. In all we were really happy with the variation of living from the hotel in Auckland to the honeymoon hut in Tutukaka. As we had never been in New Zealand and that we were traveling over Christmas would have been very challenging to plan ourselves.

We loved our entire experience in New Zealand. Shelley listened to what we wanted and made changes as we continued to tweak and plan our trip. This was a huge trip for our family and we wanted it to be very special. It was! I would highly recommend using First Light Travel and Shelley. Using a New Zealand travel company made it all so seamless and easy.

Dawn was exceptional. Our trip went so smoothly, with everything planned and documented in advance. We appreciated the travel tips on the itinerary, including drive times. Dawn's personal experience with excursions and recommendations from other travelers gave me confidence during the planning process that our selections would be good.

First Light Travel was excellent to work with. We travelled during the Christmas to New Year's holiday time period where 3 night minimums were common but they found nice, clean lodging for us that met our itinerary that was less than the 3 nights. They made a lot of thoughtful recommendations for our trip regarding things we might be interested in, once we had discussed things we thought we might like to do.
