Here's what people are saying about our hiking adventures:
“This was the best program ever! Whale watching was exhilarating seeing whales and dolphins. The Milford Sound with hundreds of waterfalls and an occasional seal was absolutely breathtaking. Loved the hikes in the fern filled forests and listening to different types of bird calls. Loved it, loved it, loved it!”
— Martha from Cypress, CA
“This was the first Road Scholar trip we have taken. Based on our experience it certainly will not be the last. Guides were terrific and we learned much about New Zealand. Country is beautiful and very diversified. Highly recommend this trip”
— Myrna from Roswell, GA
