Positives are at the end of the review. The trip only offered 'add-ons' etc. and information on businesses and tours Contiki is affiliated with, selling them like 'products', I was not told about some of the main attractions in Queenstown so I'm lucky I did prior research and booked them myself - everyone else on the tour was super disappointed when they found out about the Onsen Hot Pools, the Skyline Stargazing tour etc. when it was too late to book. We were assured we would be in max quad share and ended up in 8-pod rooms - ended up paying $200 for a room upgrade and having to send evidence that we were told quad room just to get a refund - which we did. We weren't informed that we would be joining up with a group who had already been travelling together for over a week and it made it very awkward as they had separated into groups and the tour manager did not properly introduce us (like she did when the original group started, they did activities/games to get to know each other and used the mic to introduce themselves, we weren't offered this). Didn't see the trip manager unless the whole group was together and she didn't really enquire as to whether we were having a nice time. The rooming was unfair, it was passed from the front of the bus to back and you were only meant to write your name down, it had gone through 6 people and had 33 names on it already so it was very clique-y - like high school or school camp. Anyway, Queenstown and NZ in general is stunning, our driver was awesome and trip manager had some good local/cultural knowledge - just felt a little more like numbers than friends.

The tour itself was incredible. I originally thought we would be spending waaaaay too long in Queenstown but I could've stayed there for another year - there is so much to do! It has to be one of the world's most beautiful cities.
