I just returned from an amazing trip through New Zealand. I did it mostly on my own, but before going there I debated if I should take a tour or not. I’m partially happy I didn’t but part of me wishes I did since I saw what those tour companies were doing all around the country. Before leaving, I read a few reviews about G Adventures and how good they were. In fact, they were one of the companies I saw often in New Zealand, especially in the south island.
I also read reviews of Intrepid Travel, but for some reason I didn’t see them that much, even thought they are based out of Australia, which is just next door, theorethically. Anyways, these tour companies, among others, were stopping at major touristy points like Franz Josef, Queenstown, and Wanaka, and doing all the amazing things like bungy jumping, skydiving, hiking, and more.
I felt like I didn’t have too much money to do all those things, even though I was traveling through travel hacking most of my trip, so I saved a lot of money. But still, I wish I could have done more. I did, though, bungy jump in Queenstown and in the end of the trip I also did the bridge climb in Auckland. Both of them were pretty cool experiences I’ll never forget. I truly wish I could go back to New Zealand as it is for sure one of my favorite countries in the world. It is so beautiful and so amazing to be there!
