What a wonderful week we have just had. The Kiwi guide was great, and good company for Bruce who sat up with him and the pair had a lot in common as it happened. Our hosts and their places were fantastic again.
A great tour, very well planned with wonderful places one would never go to by oneself and having someone like our Kiwi guide Paul made the trip full of information and humour. The people on board were very friendly and everyone mixed so well. Truly a wonderful experience, thank you.
Christmas lunch should get a "special" mention...the hosts at The Nice hotel were both charming and attentive. Festival of Lights at Pukekura Park rounded off a very pleasant day. The lifeboat cruise and the tour through New Plymouth's streets were interesting.
The accommodation and meals were superb, and the countryside spectacular. I couldn't have wished for a better break, and of course the weather was also the best one could wish for. I feel I should also mention our Kiwi guide who went out of his way to make our trip enjoyable.
I have enjoyed other garden tours but this one exceeded my expectations. Our Kiwi guide with his local knowledge and sense of humour was great. The gardens were all superb and I thoroughly enjoyed the privilege of having so many delicious lunches in the homes of our hosts.

Bob and I really enjoyed our first tour with MoaTrek. The accommodation was great, and the homes and gardens where we enjoyed beautiful lunches were just wonderful. As for the Wearable Arts we were blown away with the show.
Enjoyed the tour from start to finish. The Golden Bay region is so beautiful – so unexpected. The Kiwi guide took great care of us - we didn't have to worry about a thing.
Our Kiwi guide treated us to places well off the beaten track and being a small group we jelled together very quickly. I also appreciated the close fellowship of the other travellers.
This trip was a really lovely experience from start to finish well organised and everyone worked in well together. It was my first visit to Stewart Island and I had no idea how beautiful it is.
