Is age really just a number?

I am interested in taking the Big Tiki New Zealand tour but am hesitant because I'm on the upper end of the age range. Does anyone have experience with this tour (or other New Zealand tours) that could put my mind at ease that I won't be the "old lady" of the group?

    I was 31 when I did this tour last year and had no problems and there were a few people that were older then me. As long as you are there to have fun, then it should be just fine.

    I did this tour and it was mostly people between the ages of 26-32

    you will be fine! some of the tours are really big and the age range is wide as well.

    I just finished mine and we had all ages (low and high) but everyone got along and was easy going. Also the NZ one is good because it gives you a chance to party and do whatever else you need. Don’t think you are too old because you aren’t……. GO FOR IT
