The tour guides, John and Judy Hellstrom were exceptional. Their experience, professionalism, and knowledge made the treks and sights a wonderful educational endeavor. I have recommended to friends "Discover New Zealand" tour but only if John and Judy are the guides. This was my first trip to New Zealand, and my first travel tour, and I was truly fortunate to have John and Judy guide us through a remarkably beautiful country. The tours were well paced, the hikes were moderate and John and Judy were always looking out for our physical safety and well being. They went the extra mile to accommodate any one's special requests or needs. I must visit again.

We had a great time in New Zealand! We saw so many wonderful things such as the glow-worm caves and Milford Sound. I would recommend it to anyone who has the time.

For a first trip to New Zealand, this met all our expectations. It is a satisfying blend of moderate hikes and traveling through much of the two islands' diverse and spectacular topography. Trip leaders John and Margaret are experienced, warm, and attentive.
