Grand Adventurer (Auckland to Christchurch) 0 countries \ 0 days
07 Dec 2011 - 19 Dec 2011 \ I recently went on the 'grand adventurer' contiki tour from Auckland to Christchurch and what an amazing experience it turned out to be. I was traveling with a friend however I think we both agree that contiki is such a sociable experience that we would have felt comfortable traveling alone due to the many new friends we have both made. The contiki tour we took part in covered both islands within just over 2 weeks, although there was much to see I feel as if our tour manager did a great job of giving us an overview of all the different places we visited. I cannot speak highly enough of the contiki staff, both the tour manager and our bus driver were amazing and could not do enough to make sure everyone was happy and getting involved. Another thing, the optional extras- absolutely amazing! Even I did bungy jumping and I'm terrified of heights, I think that is partially due to the support from the whole contiki team who really just want everyone to get involved and have fun. There are plenty of activities to keep you busy even if you're not one for the extreme sports. The transportation was of top quality, the bus was always clean and comfortable, not to mention the games to keep us all occupied! Some hilarious memories come from that alone! Some big nights out in the town, also a couple of themed nights for a change which were also loads of fun. I could write about my contiki experience for pages but in summary, it was amazing, I have made some great friends who I would love to travel with in the future. My next destination is contiki in Europe, so I would say give it a go and you won't regret it. Thanks to everyone who made my experience such a fantastic one.
