ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.

How many have to signup for the trip to occur? What's the maximum number allowed?


Anne Thomson May 16, 2015 at 07:18 PM

The trip I took was the 40th anniversary one (Jan. 2015). I chose that particular trip for the above reason as well as my schedule for the rest of the spring. We had gorgeous weather (rain in Wellington for about one hour, and that was it for rain). It was hot in the Outback and Cairns, but I'm from Florida so the heat didn't bother me. Just book the trip that works best for you, and let the weather take care of itself. We had 28 in NZ and 21 in AS.

Thank you for the reply.

How did you decide which date to enroll?
Noreen McAuley May 16, 2015 at 11:37 AM

They told me 14! Think that's a great sized group! My husband and I will be coming from Dallas and are looking forward to meeting everyone!
Janice Hoistad Mar 12, 2015 at 04:11 PM

Note that the NZ-OZ trip is a combo trip of NZ and OZ. You might be 14 doing both NZ and OZ and be joined by another group just doing NZthen a group just doing OZ. I took this trip last Se
Janice Hoistad Mar 12, 2015 at 04:13 PM

Sept. There were 26 of us in NZ, 8 left and we were joined by 14 for OZ. So our group that did both was 18. You might want to ask about the other tours joining your group.
