I did the Ultimate New Zealand trip which our amazing guides took us all over New Zealand. True to their words, we went to places where only the locals or the selected few know about, and the places are amazing! What looked like a random stream on the road and it is in fact a thermal stream which people can... More

I recently returned from completing the Ultimate South trek with Hiking New Zealand and cannot recommend it highly enough! Right from initial preparations and reserving a spot on the trek it was easy and effortless dealing with Dan and the rest of the staff at Hiking New Zealand. They answered all questions promptly and informatively. Plus the helpful information sheet... More

We booked the New Zealand Uncut tour because it contained many places and activities on our to-do list for a trip to New Zealand, and it turned out to be a great decision. The itinerary was packed, but never felt rushed - often we found our selves thinking 'was it only yesterday we were there?' because we had done so... More

Excellent NZ experience. Justin, our guide from Hiking NZ, was absolutely perfect. Very good knowledge of country, nature and area, instant change in plans due to weather to keep us busy. Tour itself perfect combination of hiking, camping and bunch of small activities. Highlights for me were Kayaking and Kauri forest.

A wonderful trip with an informed guide (Justin) made all the difference! Justin was great and flexible with the arrangements, flexibility in various diet restrictions, sharing knowledge about the political landscape and history of NZ and the Maori as well as the flora/fauna of the places we visited as well as caring for all the logistics and hot teas (very...

Hiking NZ trip with Justin as our guide was excellent in all aspects. He was knowledgable about the geography, history, botany, and zoology of New Zealand and made the entire trip seamless and great fun. New Zealand was just amazing - top recommendation.

Any attempt to properly explain the experience I had on this tour with Hiking New Zealand will fall far short, so I will just give you this. New Zealand is an amazingly fantastic and beautiful place, so no matter what you can not go wrong by visiting it. That said, the experience of traveling with the Hiking New Zealand crew... More

Hiking NZ's 7 day trip was awesome. The experienced and knowledgeable Dan and his trainees lead us through marked and wild trails, taught us about New Zealand's stunning landscape and history, and always offered a cup of tea or coffee after a hard day's hiking. I would totally recommend Hiking NZ.
