Our guides (Justin on the North Island, Martin on the South Island) were both extremely knowledgeable about New Zealand's flora, fauna, geology, and cultural history. They were friendly, helpful, patient, and charming with great senses of humor. Special thanks to Justin for... More

I researched my New Zealand vacation extensively trying to figure out what I wanted to see and do during my time there. I considered one of the "great walks" on the South Island but after seeing the agenda, determined it was not enough of what I wanted to see and do while there. And it would have left me planning...

Our experience with Hiking New Zealand, (Northern Portion ) and most particularly our guide, Justin, couldn't have been better. Despite the unpredictable weather Justin assessed and reassessed the best routes and days in order to make our hikes successful. His knowledge of all things environmental added an element of interest we had not anticipated. Additionally , Justin was a great... More

I had a fantastic time: hiking was challenging enough - the sights we visited were interesting - the accommodations were good, food was good but the best part was really our guide Malcolm. He has a wealth of knowledge about most things but is able to share them with a wicked sense of humour! Highly recommend this hiking tour. Sandy

Had been hiking with Hiking New Zealand 16 years ago, and I wanted to do another trip with them. In February I finally came back to NZ and did the 15 day Ultimate South trip. It was fantastic and fully lived up to my high expectations! And even the weather was great - most of the time. Only 3 rainy... More

I was lucky enough to be a group with 11 incredible people, who now I consider close friends. Our Guide Rory was very knowledgeable about New Zealand and just... More

From start to finish, Hiking New Zealand was ideal to work with. Anne made it seem so easy to custom-design a family trip, even when I kept pestering her with emails to adjust this or that detail. In the end, everything worked out exactly as we had hoped and I'm so grateful. Thank you Anne! Within a few minutes of... More

Every detail was taken care of. I loved not having to think about driving, food, lodgings, pit stops, trail maps, etc. Hiking New Zealand even offered to supply rain gear (no charge), which I took them up on and it saved me from having to check a bag. They provided excellent information in advance so I was well prepared with... More
