Grand Adventurer!?

8 Sep 2009 Matt asked

Hey,<BR><BR>I'm planning on booking a Grand Adventurer trip in Jan or Fed 2010. I was just wondering which would be the best one to go on seeing that there is 4 to choose from?

    I’d be interested to know which NZ tour people think is best too…it’s hard to pick when they’re so similar – you almost just want to take th elongest one, because you can!

    Hey Matt,

    Having not been on my tour yet, I can’t really tell you from experience, but I can tell you why I chose my tour.

    I’m doing the Grand Adventurer from Auckland to Queenstown because I want to spend some time in Queenstown afterwards – my family have told me how beautiful the region is and there is heaps of activities that I want to do there. Flying into/out of Auckland was a no brainer for me too, as there’s a couple of things I want to do there beforehand – like the Sky Jump/Deck and the Antarctic World place…

    Not sure if that helps, but good luck deciding – I’m sure they are much of a much-ness really Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    When i went 3 years ago – shock i cant believe it was that long ago – on the Grand Explorer. It was amazing, if you get the chance – milford sound…. wow what an amazing place, i think for the whole tour it was the only time i was quiet ha! i sat up with a group of friends on top of the boat and watched the sun set, it was beautiful!! If you want to finish in Queenstown you can do either, i think you just have to decide if you wanna go check out milford sound or not.

    I’m looking at one as well, probably the 14 day one to Queenstown. I just have yet to choose the date. I’m thinking late January
