We had a dream vacation in a dream country. Every corner you turn is filled with another marvellous view. 33 days, 5 000 km, self-driven by a driver of 50 years on the right side! of the road. Everything was made possible by Sandi, the Managing Director of Amazing NZ. With the patience of an angel, she worked for over 2 month with us in planning the itinerary, booking accommodations and tours. Things were even more complicated, since we were 1 couple( min a queen bed) and 2 travelling friends( 2 twin beds). She went over all hurdles. Everything went without a hitch, the everyday en route recommendations were followed to perfection to our great satisfaction, always arriving in time to our next accommodation. Only somebody living in NZ and with a long experience could plan SO well. We treasure her book, customized for every single day, for every single km. It is going to be so easy now in sorting the over 2 000 picture.
Sandi met us at arrival in the airport to welcome us and at the end of the trip at our hotel. She promptly reimbursed our cancelled cruise to Milford Sound due to big storm damages. We were so lucky that we followed her previous advice and booked in advance Doub

I am so thrilled you ened up in having your dream vacation, that is wonderful to read something so positive with the negative impact Covid is having on our tourism industry! You were indeed incredibly luky to be just a few weeks ahead of this pandemic. But it will blow over and we WILL bounce back, as New Zealand is too beautiful a place not to come and visit :)

We spent 2 weeks touring the North and South islands in New Zealand on a chauffer guided trip planned by Amazing New Zealand. Planning the trip was very easy as they created an itinerary but were very responsive to our request for changes based on our needs and budget. For a chauffer driven guided tour tour their price was very reasonable, and was much less than packages offered by other tour companies in New Zealand. The vans for the tour were comfortable and clean and both the drivers/guides were excellent. The accommodations were acceptable with no complaints or problems. All of the hikes, stops and sites they chose for us to visit were great.

The only problem we faced on our trip was that although the weather in Queensland was great, the weather in Milford Sound was bad enough that our planned fly-cruise-fly trip from Queensland to Milford Sound and back wasn't possible for the days we were in Queensland. But Queensland has plenty of other activities and a jetboat ride on the Shotover River was a great substitute.

We would definitely recommend this tour company for their responsiveness, flexibility with our requests and quality of accommodations and transport.

Amazing New Zealand and Summer far exceeded our expectations for the vacation. Summer planned a trip based on our individual interests. We asked for wildlife, hiking and culture. We also chose B&Bs when possible. A booklet was provided that detailed how far and were to drive each day. Suggestions were made as to a variety of things to do each day. Suggestions for restaurants or quick meals were also included. The accommodations were amazing! Each one was chosen for the location to our activities and amazing views. Due to the pandemic, we were lucky enough to be able to return home on the day that we had planned on traveling to Australia. We planned the Australia part of the vacation and we DO REALIZE how much work it is to plan a 34 day trip. Each day we'd say how AMAZING it was that we found Amazing New Zealand online and that Summer was there each step of the way to plan the vacation. Thank You Summer and Amazing New Zealand!

Sandi at Amazing New Zealand is truly amazing. She put together a tailored 5-week self-drive itinerary of both islands and it was wonderful. Everything was perfect: car, great B&Bs, exciting activities, dining recommendations, extra information... She met us at the airport and gave us a great information packet and even provided us tips for special stops en-route to see unique things -- like a short trek along a creek to see a small pond loaded with seal pups. We loved our trip and Sandi's expertise and planning added to our enjoyment and memories.

We absolutely loved the trip that Summer at Amazing NZ itineraries arranged for us. It was easy to interact via e-mail and, suspicious as I was because I had no personal recommendation, I went with my gut, and trusted this small company. They totally nailed it from start to finish. We wanted restaurant recommendations, they obliged. They refunded the helicopter tour that was grounded due to weather promptly. They advised us on ways to maximize our time, travel distances, and found lovely lodgings of the type we prefer (a bit off the beaten path, and in beautiful locations).
I forgot to mention that Summer met us at the airport and walked us through getting a SIM card and provided a very detailed itinerary. We felt so satisfied with the service provided and trip of a lifetime.

We visited New Zealand in November of 2016 ( the pull -down menu doesn’t go back that far) and found Summer and her team at Amazing New Zealand after a thorough search of the many companies available. Summer arranged an 11-day itinerary that included many of the top attractions along with a rental car. The service provided, communication, and down right helpful and friendly attitude that we received was off the charts! Summer was always accessible whenever we needed her; but, she was not bothersome in any way. The accommodations booked were fabulous and varied ( a mix of hotels and B&Bs). The tours and attractions were outstanding...exceeding our expectations. We even had a flat tire on our rental car and the company covered a replacement tire and service with no hesitation or cost to us. To top it off, everyone we met was friendly and helpful.

If you want to experience the best of New Zealand call or email Summer at Amazing New Zealand. You will not be sorry you did!

There slogan we know New Zealand because we live here was the reason to invite them for our itenary proposal. However we had specific demands cost wise, nature, birding and sightseeing both islands. It was already a pleasure in the set up phase to communicate during the work out of our trip. The budget was reached, the plans looked fantastic but how will the reality work out. 31 days long was our trip.
All our overnight stays were superb either b&b or motel. High quality, superb reception and many times stunning views. The nature and birding trips together with the many times unique surroundings were many time a fabulous experience.
Our recommendation for everyone is, contact this organisation and explain your wishes. Amazing New Zealand will not disappoint you. Only one negative remark - we had to return home but we will come back!! Leony and Cor

Amazing New Zealand will ensure you have the perfectly planned trip for your family. We worked with Sandi and she was incredible. We are a family of 6 with 4 teenage children who like to be on the move, enjoy unique experiences and have a busy schedule. We are very demanding in ensuring every minute is planned. Sandi planned every detail with us and was patient and accommodating in all of our planning requests. We spent two weeks starting on the North Island in Auckland and Rotorua. We flew into ChristChurch and drove to Akoroa, Mt Cook, and Wanaka. We spent the night on the Milford Sound and ended our trip for a stay in Queenstown. Sandi ensured we had stops along our drive so the drive was as much fun as reaching our destination. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Amazing New Zealand. Our trip was in December 2017.

My husband and I were doing a ton of research on New Zealand for our three week honeymoon, and getting a bit overwhelmed about where to begin, when we came across Amazing New Zealand’s Facebook page. We started working with Summer to plan what was nothing less than a trip of a lifetime, and the most incredible honeymoon we could have imagined!!! Summer went back and forth with us for weeks to design the perfect itinerary---a mix of relaxing, adventurous, low-cost, and luxury experiences. In this review, I will attempt to summarize the top 5 reasons why you should look no further for the perfect travel partner when planning your trip to NZ.

1. INCREDIBLE ACCOMODATIONS: Amazing New Zealand’s connections in the NZ tourism industry is one thing that sets their tours apart. We stayed in the most amazing homes and B&Bs, which we never would have found on our own. The views from our accommodations in Nelson, Hahei, and Rotorua were bar-none in the world.

2. RELIABILITY: Summer (our coordinator) was incredibly dependable – before, during, and after our trip. She picked us up from the airport and made sure we got to our first hotel when jetlagged and bleary. Along our journey, we had to re-route because of weather—it changed several days of our itinerary and could have been very overwhelming. Summer worked with us proactively and was incredibly supportive during what could have been a stressful part of our trip. She also worked with her partners to get us a full refund wherever possible for the weather impact.

3. AFFORDABLE: Well actually, they are free?! It’s truly amazing but the Amazing New Zealand team does not charge travelers for their services. Also, because of all of the research we had done, I know we got the same rate OR a better rate for all hotel, excursions, flights, etc. in working with Amazing New Zealand. Summer really worked with us to ensure all accommodations and activities were within our budget. There was never any pressure from the Amazing New Zealand team to spend more or even a minimum.

4. CUSTOM: With Amazing New Zealand’s initial intake survey, you can mention exactly what you want and don’t want from your experience in the country---or, what you like or don’t like in general. Our itinerary was completely customized-- a vacation designed for an adventurous, newlywed couple on a minimal budget.

5. SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS: One of the beautiful things about NZ is the quaint, undeveloped, authentic nature of the local culture. This is captured in the experience we received working with Summer and Amazing New Zealand. We chose this company because of its professionalism and knowledge, but had no idea that it was a small, family-run business. The type of NZ hospitality that you receive from working with a small business like Amazing New Zealand is not only special, but part of the cultural experience.

In conclusion, some of my favorite memories from our honeymoon include eating the freshest fish I’ve ever tasted –caught just that morning – in Nelson, seeing rainbows and dolphins in the Milford Sound, playing with sheep at our B&B in Te Anu, hiking private beaches and jungle in Abel Tasman National Park, enjoying homemade breakfast with Kiwi hosts, tasting the finest Pinot Noir in Central Otago, seeing the brightest stars of my life including the Milky Way, a private shuttle flight on New Zealand Air from Rotorua to Wellington, eating dinner in a restaurant only a few tables away from the Governor General, and so much more!! This trip, the memories, and this life milestone would not have been the same without Amazing New Zealand—THANK YOU!
