This was my first Contiki tour, and it absolutely won't be my last. Our tour leader and bus driver were incredibly knowledgeable, approachable, insightful, and great people to be around. Our tour wouldn't have been as memorable as it was if it weren't for them. We got treated to some absolutely breathtaking scenery of the incredibly picturesque New Zealand landscape, making every bus trip between destinations seem like a few minutes. The locations we visited and optional activities we were able to partake in created memories I'll be talking about for a very long time. Black water rafting, white water rafting, learning the haka just a select few that were absolutely amazing. And of course if you're an adrenaline junkie, skydiving and bungy jumping are all on offer and those on my tour who did them say that they ranged among the best things they'd ever done.
I made lifelong mates and memories I'll carry with me for a lifetime on this tour. I traveled solo, and can't recommend doing that enough for those who are a little apprehensive about doing so - the majority of the tour group were also traveling solo. Our brilliant tour leader, an amazing group of people and all the jaw dropping locations we were treated to made my first Contiki and first trip to NZ easily my favourite holiday I've ever been on. The only downside to the Northern Choice tour - It wasn't enough! I do regret not joining the crew for the south island. But if you're on time constraints like I unfortunately was, or have perhaps already seen the south island, and are after an incredibly affordable and great value for money tour, then this tour is the right choice and the ultimate way to see the incredible north island of NZ.
