    Hi there

    I’m going on the Grand Explorer in July this year. Haven’t decided on a date yet.
    The Grand Explorer is the same tour as the Grand Adventurer but with a couple of extra days.

    everyone that travels 2 nz will be perfectly fine we are a safe wee place and if your coming over in winter pack a huge amount of warm clothes it’s seriously cold in winter if we get snow in summer then you cant think of what winter is like Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
