This program was primarily a bird-watching trip, but also included cultural bits of interest: a look at the Maori culture, a visit to Parliament, exposure to the endemic plants, a look at the earth quake damage in Christchurch. At each major stop, a local birding expert joined our group, a great advantage. The program was well-organized, and the leader was a good communicator. I added 79 bird species to my life list - needless to say, I was more than happy with the trip.
