Hi Michelle,

Thanks for helping to put together such a wonderful, wonderful trip!  You were so helpful, timely with your responses, and caring.  I’ll definitely recommend you to others who plan to travel to NZ.  (You’re so lucky to live there.  My husband and I are talking about moving J).

The most important decision we made for our month long stay in New Zealand was to use Amelia at First Light. We just gave her our goals and parameters for our stay and the itinerary she created from all the activities to the accommodations was absolutely perfect. I cannot stress how worry free our vacation was. I would not change a thing and will be recommending her and First Light for years to come. My one piece of advice is to make sure you spend plenty of time in the small beautiful towns. The bed and breakfast options are amazing!

Thank you Amelia!

We did some shopping around with different travel companies when we first started planning our trip to New Zealand, and Jo at First Light Travel was the most responsive and helpful. She helped us put together a trip full of exactly the activities we wanted to do. The result was the most amazing vacation we had ever been on. Future vacations are going to have a hard time living up to this one. Having all of our bookings and travel details taken care of made everything super convenient and easy. Thank you so much for helping us take our dream vacation!

Wow! What an amazing holiday we had driving across the North Island. It was a truly easy experience knowing that all our plans were booked far in advance and we still had time to add our own stops along the way. A big thank you to Dawn, who planned this trip for us almost a year in advance. With so much to see and do, First Light Travel made it easy for our family!

I can not recommend Dawn and First Light Travel highly enough. They worked with us to create a wonderful vacation, excellent accommodation and great tours. Whenever we wanted to make adaptations they were flexible. I only wish that they provided holidays all over the world as i would use them everywhere. If you are going to NZ look no further.

We have very limited time for our trip and Toni has amazing skills. She make a trip proposal that is perfectly meet our request. I strongly recommend that if you planning to travel to New Zealand please don’t waste your time on your search engine and you just need to grab the right Travel planer from First Light Travel. That’s will solve all your problems and you will really enjoy your wonderful trip.

Jo at First Light Travel did an amazing job preparing the itinerary for our visit to New Zealand. Traveling from Auckland to Queenstown, we were able to experience the highlights of the country in a comfortable, relaxed manner. The trip was completed without a hitch. I highly recommend First Light Travel for anyone planning to visit New Zealand.

Great experience working with First Light. Our trip exceeded our expectations. Thanks to Deb for doing a great job of making it fit our style, time and budget. We enjoyed our two weeks in New Zealand. Our only wish was that we would have spent three weeks. So many wonderful things to see and do. Milford Sound overnight cruise, bungee jumping, Shotover Jet boat, Waitomo glow worms, visiting friends in Wanaka and driving through the beautiful countryside were some of the highlights.

Thanks again for helping us have a delightful time

Thank you First Light! We have just returned from an amazing 27-day vacation in New Zealand and with Dawn’s help, it was a fantastic, once in a lifetime experience. Dawn worked closely with us, setting up our self-driving tour including our suggestions and offering many great ones of her own. The end result was the perfect itineray in which there were no issues whatsoever. Kudos to Dawn at First Light for the great job she did in creating our perfect holiday!
