          Wonderful Service. Terrific vacation
          Our daughter was studying at the University of Auckland and we decided to to visit her. The adult children took off from work, and we asked Amazing New Zealand to organize a vacation for us. Jane super delivered Our older children had a limited time off work and Jane organized a fun packed, active days of hiking, helicopter rides, fast boats and visiting the Milford Sound ( South Island). We also visited wineries in the North Island. Would love to return to NZ ( so much to do and see) When we do, we will certainly contact Amazing New Zealand again Thank you for making our family vacation a memorable one!

          Use the expertise of this company to plan a great trip.
          In planning our trip, we spoke to lots of people about how they “ did” New Zealand in trying to figure out the best way for us. Some did a tour, some did a cruise, some did both partial driving and a cruise, some drove etc. We were referred to Amazing New Zealand by friends who were pleased with the driving itinerary Sandra put together for them. We think we found the perfect way to “do” NZ (for us). With Sandra’s depth of knowledge of all things NZ, she crafted a fabulous 3 1/2 week itinerary with a driver that went from North Island to South Island. We kept saying to each other (we were two couples) that the best decision we made was having a driver so we could all just devote ourselves to relaxing and enjoying the magnificent scenery and avoid any possible stress from driving on the opposite side of the road, or getting lost, or getting fatigued from driving etc. At the end of each day, we just looked at each other and said “another amazing adventure, another amazing day.” Having traveled to over 80 countries, I can say that ( for me) NZ is the most beautiful, diverse, sane and clean country. Our driver on North Island, Lode, is an expert guide as well and we loved learning all the knowledge he had to share. Debbie on South Island went above and beyond in many small ways to make our trip even better. We cannot recommend this company more highly!

          Amazing plan for our New Zealand trip.
          Amazing New Zealand planned a marvelous month-long trip to both islands. They invested significant effort in planning our trip, which created an unforgettable experience for us. Everything went smoothly, exactly as planned. We enjoyed it very much; every day was fantastic and different from the other day. We highly recommend using their service.

          Amazing New Zealand = amazing service!
          Just back from 3 1/2 weeks of a fantastic itinerary arranged by Sandi with solid support from Jane. We couldn't be more pleased with the lodging and activities that Sandi suggested and planned. The travel book Sandi presented to us was our day-by-day guide that clearly laid out directions and instructions. It was like having our own personal guide along. Super easy to just show up at a lodging or an activity and just give our name for entry eventhough ANZ provided vouchers for backup. On the vouchers and in the guidebook were tips and instructions that made things a lot easier - things we wouldn't have been aware of otherwise. The Milford Sound cruise parking entry is just one example. Knowledgeable, highly organized, patient with us as we worked to customize our itinerary we give ANZ a solid five stars and are telling all our friends that are wanting to visit NZ that ANZ is the only way to go - they'll take care of you!

          Queenstown Delight
          We have lived in New Zealand and had yet to visit Queenstown. My mum came to visit so we decided to head down for a quick look, we had 5 days to cram as much as we possibly could and Sandi did a fantastic job of sorting our itinerary to maximise our time there. We got to see what we wanted to see and a bit more - it wouldn’t have gone as smoothly if not for AmazingNZ! Thanks a stack Sandi

          Incredible bespoke itinerary from Amazing New Zealand.
          Just returned from an incredible 26 day bespoke road trip around South Island NZ organised by Sandi at Amazing New Zealand. We were a bit overwhelmed when we started planning our trip, where were the “must see” places and experiences. How long were the drives between each stopover. Could we play some golf? etc., Sandi to the rescue. She put together a great itinerary for us taking into account, the type of accommodation we wanted to stay in and what experiences we wanted. It took a couple of months of emails to and fro until we came up with our perfect itinerary. EVERYTHING had been researched and trips booked including helicopter rides, jet boat experiences and suggestions on where to stop for lunch en route and where were the best. dining options. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. We’ve still got North Island to visit and Sandi will be getting a call from us to organise that.

          17 amazing days in New Zealand
          Sandi is a thoughtful, patient, and knowledgeable travel agent. She did a great job designing our custom itinerary based on our interests - an epic 17-day road trip throughout the North and South islands. Sandi started with her best recommendations, then based on our feedback and request, she modified the plan a few times until we were happy with it. Throughout the process, it was easy to see that she was very experienced. She advised us on what is feasible to pack into one day, the best route to go from point A to point B, and where to have lunch and dinner each day. Planning a long trip in an unfamiliar country could be overwhelming but with Sandi helping us, it was a breeze. Sandi's detailed description of each location also got us very excited about the trip. She also helped us book everything ahead of time so we didn't have to deal with many international transactions. While we were on our epic road trip, we ran into some unexpected weather, and some planned activities were canceled. We didn't have to scramble much because Sandi was already on top of it, helping us book alternative activities and dealing with the cancelations herself. New Zealand was simply amazing and we can't wait to go back. We also can't wait to work with Sandi again!

          Comprehensive visit to the South Island, New Zealand
          We had a perfectly planned, action packed holiday tailored to our budget. No problems or hiccups!! Picked up a vehicle from Christchurch airport and traveled down to Dunedin and back to Christchurch. Each day with mileage was planned and calculated for us with allowances for excursions and sight seeing.

          We LOVED our custom itinerary!!
          Our visit to NZ was in February, 2019. Amazing New Zealand worked with us months in advance to create a customized itinerary tailored exactly to our requests and expectations. Every detail was taken care of so we could hit the ground running and make the most of every minute we had. All of the recommendations and advice they supplied were spot-on. They were responsive to emails before we arrived and texts messages during our visit. I highly recommend Amazing New Zealand - you won't be disappointed. They will arrange a trip of a lifetime for you in this stunningly beautiful country.

          Awesome tour of NZ
          We booked a 7 week tour of NZ with Amazing NZ and we were very happy our experience. Using an in country travel expert really pays off. We saw and did so many amazing things we could not have sourced on our own. From detailed travel plans, to great accommodations and hidden gems, this was a trip of a live time. We did over 7000 Kilometers and saw much of NZ. Sandi knows the country so well and can tailor the to your interests but don’t miss Mount Cook, Abel Tasman area, or overnight on a ship in Milford Sound. So many great spots and they were all laid out for us in a very comprehensive travel plan. Next extended international trip I will definitely use an inbound travel resource to get the most out of my trip.

        Amazing New Zealand really did help us have an amazing trip!! Sandra and Lode worked with us to plan our 18 day trip which included many highlights of the North and South islands. Communication was timely and professional, suggestions and recommendations were shared and discussed, changes were made as needed, and we even had Lode as our driver-guide for a few days which was truly a pleasure. Whether self driving or looking for driver-guides, they know all the best people, places and adventures to fit every type of traveler and budget. Everything was very organized and the itinerary we received upon arrival was incredibly detailed and helpful. Thank you to Amazing New Zealand for the trip of a lifetime.

        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!

        We went on a 4-week tour through the North -and South Island of New Zealand. Jane, the owner of Amazing New Zealand, put together an itinerary after consulting with us about our interests, time available and budget restrictions. It was so valuable to have all of our accommodations and tours booked. Even though we covered more than 2300 miles, the trip felt relaxed, because we could trust our helpful trip booklet to get us to the places we needed to be in time. I would highly recommend Amazing New Zealand to organize an unforgettable trip to NZ.

        Excellent, personal service. Our whole experience was wonderful with everything going seamlessly. The accommodation which Sandra arranged was well above our expectations. Overall, the whole itinerary was extremely well organised and we cannot thank Amazing New Zealand enough. We thoroughly recommend Sandra and Amazing New Zealand.

        We had the pleasure of working with Amazing New Zealand for over a year on a fantastic itinerary. We did primarily the South Island. We landed in Aukland, flew to Wellington to experience the views of the ferry ride to the South Island. From there we spent three weeks zip zagging New Zealand. We (my husband and I) had a private tour with Loda. Great drier, always on time, knew every little thing about the people, the country, its history, the animals, plants and wildlife. Best part he knew when to stop where. Saw some hidden gems and experienced New Zealand for all she has. We had no problems because we had a guide with us every step of the way. Consider this method to see a magnificent country.

        Amazing New Zealand is, in a word, amazing. The itinerary ANZ crafted with and for us was packed with one spectacular experience after another. We were impressed and pleased that it seemed that each experience left us even more impressed with the majesty and magic of New Zealand. The accommodations – especially the bed and breakfasts – that ANZ arranged for us were exceptional, including comfortable accommodations and gracious hosts. On the North Island, our driver was also a knowledgeable guide, naturalist and historian, happy to answer our questions and show us places that enhanced our experience. On the South Island, our driver was extraordinarily attentive to us, and the bond we developed with her left us emotional when we had to say goodbye. We are still excited when we tell our friends and family about our trip and how grateful we are to have used Amazing New Zealand.

        Wow! Just spent 4 weeks in New Zealand with an itinerary from Amazing New Zealand and it was fabulous. Jane understood the kind of tour we wanted and our hotels and excursions were a great fit. So much detail in our self-driving itinerary and we experienced so much of this beautiful country. We had only a couple of hiccups along the way and it was easy to communicate with Jane. Because she is in-country, Jane is quick to respond and help with questions or issues. Great communication, great itinerary, great value. I highly recommend Amazing New Zealand!

        Sandra was amazing. She worked and worked with us until we had our trip just right. While we were enjoying NZ, we needed to shift things around a bit. Sandra was accommodating and on it. I know it wasn't easy for her, but she did it. Knowing that we had a contact that can get us around to where we wanted to be was invaluable. Thank you Sandra!
