Just how much mind-boggling can be packed into a 10-day holiday? Quite a lot when you're prancing around New Zealand. We'll sojourn our way from Auckland to Christchurch, chowing fish'n'chips and Maori hāngi meals, watching geothermic mud pools boil & signing up for adrenalin rushes that will buzz on in our minds 'til we're old and grey.

Breathtaking

Kia Ora! Before I start this review, I want to let you know that you should definitely extend your trip and do The Big Tiki. I booked the Northern Choice and Sweet as South (reverse) trips that make up the Big Tiki and wouldn't look back. Living in Australia, I was worried that this trip would be too similar to home and I was completely wrong. New Zealand's landscape is absolutely breathtaking. Not only do you travel to the major cities, you get to stop in some of the smallest towns along the way, which was a highlight for me. I would recommend doing as many optional extras that you can. It's an adrenaline based country and the best way to get over any fears that you may have. You also learn a lot about the Maori culture and their way of life. Everyone is lovely. The hotels and food provided were fine and a few of them had spectacular views. Soap our guide and Pat our bus driver were the perfect team. There were no issues along the way and they helped us make the most of the journey. The trip was full of #goodtimes and a lot of firsts, #justsayin I could go on about how amazing this trip was, but if you're interested, check out a video I made. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7oQkjaheWc My advice would be to definitely travel to New Zealand. It might end up being an expensive trip due to all the extra activities, but you may not ever get the chance to do this again, so make the most of it.

Unforgettable!!!

This Contiki was amazing! I'm from Australia so New Zealand is basically my neighbour. At the time of the tour I was only 18 and decided that I would only do the 10 day tour to see if Contiki was for me. HELPFUL HINT - Do a longer one!! Within 10 days the tour group that I was with felt like I have known them for life. I was the youngest person with them and even the eldest didn't make that an issue. Hayley was our tour guide and she was very helpful! She told us where the best places for sight seeing were - even the best places to get a meat pie (I had a craving one lunch time). Most of the accommodation was good. At the end of the day, in most cities and towns you weren't in there for a lot except for sleeping anyway. The coaches were comfy and great for catching up on some sleep. Possibly the best view that I have seen in my life was on the ferry from the north island to the south island. Everyone that stayed on to do the south island posted their photos online. Don't regret not seeing it for myself like I did ..... BOOK A LONGER TOUR! #NOREGRETS
