The lady (Courtney Blackwell) who the trip was purchased through was so helpful with any questions and trip changes. This made it so much easier. The payment systems was also great!

The Big Tiki gives you a taste of everything New Zealand has to offer. You go all through the north and south islands, and the optional add ons are experiences you shouldn’t miss. In saying that, there are also so many inclusions that teach you about the local Maori culture, and just general NZ history, and that is what makes this trip so good. I planned my trip to include my birthday, and your contiki crew becomes like family. I had an awesome trip and day specifically (my trip manager even shouted me a tequila shot); I couldn’t have asked for any better.

I would recommend doing this full trip over just the north/ south as you need to see all of New Zealand. The inclusions are the best I’ve seen from similar companies and driving is the best way to travel around New Zealand. It is a beautiful country, which you must see!

Our trip was great full of amazing extras however the trip was jump on jump off meaning we had over 100 come through out trip This was horrible and made it very hard to make friends in the first week all people booking a contiki should be made awear if this is happening as it makes the start of the trip very hard

The accommodation we stayed at, the distances we needed to travel and the breakfasts and dinners provided aligned with the price we payed for the contiki

Knowledgeable, outgoing, supportive, and hilarious tour guides and tour drivers that demonstrated a unique passion for their country and created a great atmosphere for the entire 19 day trip! Both Cam and Patty (along with the trainees Lucy and Rae) collectively made the entire trip worthwhile and enjoyable.

This trip was an experience of a lifetime. I loved the whole thing. Everything was really well planned and organised so I had to worry about nothing which was great. I always knew where I had to be and when which helped me to relax on this trip.
