This was the third time I toured NZ with Aroha Tours. That alone may tell you what wonderful experiences I had with them. My first trip was together with my brother in 2013 (short 7 days tour of parts of the South Island). The second time my father and I went to the North Island for 10 days in 2014 and the third time we did a two weeks tour of the South Island in February/March 2016. I cannot thank Veronika and her team enough. Everything, from the first contact, to the planning and last but not least to the trip itself are done with expertise and warmth, which is hardly found anywhere else. The itineraries and the lodges are planned and selected with the greatest care and are perfectly adjusted to your requirements and wishes. And there is always enough room for flexibility, so that changes are possible also while you are already there. On all our trips Jurgen was our guide. He did an awesome job! To say his knowledge of the country is extensive is actually an understatement. Most of all his friendliness and humor make him a perfect companion for such a tour. We consider Jurgen a friend by now. I am convinced that there is no better choice than Aroha Tours when you want to visit New Zealand and make the most of your trip! I cannot recommend them enough.
