We just got home from our 2 week trip to New Zealand and want to say how much we enjoyed the whole country. Our day trip with the BBQ bus and both Nick and Mayumi was just fantastic. We are people who like to drive ourselves (put 3000kms on the rental) but thought it would be fun to try the bus tour. There were only 11 of us on the bus and it was well run, professional and fun. Nick managed to add an engaging commentary and (don't know how he does it) but it did not feel as though he must be repeating himself often. We enjoyed the trip, the lunch and the boat ride as well. Mayumi went with us on the boat- we watched her and when she put her hood up over her hat we knew that we needed to as well or lose our hats to the wind! It was a picture perfect blue sky day and Nick also arranged for us to take a flight back in a fixed wing plane- oh my goodness it was ALL worth it. This day was one of our many highlights and we would not hesitate to recommend them. Even if you are not a "bus tour" type of person- this one does not feel as regimented or overwhelming - just a nice day out with some "friends". Many thanks Nick and Mayumi.
