What our clients sayWe had a great time. Saw a lot of the North Island. Had time to work through our “jet lag” as needed with a flexible daily schedule. Enjoyed being in NZ when the British Lions Rugby tour was taking place. You told me it was taking place, and I was expecting to see and hear lots of Rugby talk from the locals. I wasn’t expecting to see and interact with so many of the “Lions” fans as they toured the country. Someone told me there were 28,000 British fans on the “official” tour. It was a bonus. The America’s Cup races were an added interest also (except for the brutal beating the Kiwis put on the US boat).
The hotels worked out really well and the proprietors were friendly and helpful. All of our arrivals were expected and handled quickly and efficiently.
If I had anything to add in the way of improving the experience, it might be a heads-up about the wi-fi costs at “Spencer on Byron” ($20 per day), and the parking costs at "Spencer on Byron” ($20 per day) and "James Cook Hotel" in Wellington ($29). I’ve stayed in large city hotels before and know that those added expenses exist, and not controlled by you. Some info in advance would have been appreciated for our planning. Your information on the added fee for airport pick-up of the rental car was helpful and expected.
We may one day want to come back and visit the South Island.
