Travel Insurance is not included and is strongly recommended for all travellers.
Health, Fitness and Behaviour
Payment of the deposit by the client(s) to MoaTrek New Zealand Ltd acts as a warranty that the client(s) is/are reasonably healthy and/or fit to participate in the tour and the client(s) indemnifies MoaTrek New Zealand Ltd from all actions, claims and demands arising out of any want of health and fitness. MoaTrek New Zealand Ltd reserves the right to remove a client from a tour if their health, fitness or behavior interfere with the tour or other client(s) tour experience in any way.
MoaTrek New Zealand Ltd advises that the service it provides is for the booking and packaging of goods and services provided by other operators such as hotels, attractions and transportation companies. Travellers are advised to familiarise themselves with the terms and conditions on which these services are supplied. Accordingly MoaTrek will not be responsible and will be excluded from liability for any loss, damage, omission or acts being negligent or otherwise, committed by the operators of airlines, coach lines, cruise vessels, hotels or attractions used in connection with the tours.
MoaTrek New Zealand Ltd does not operate these excursions. As such, no person employed or associated with MoaTrek has any connection with the operators of these excursions. Accordingly, MoaTrek cannot and do not take any responsibility for any injury, action, loss or damage of any type, arising in any manner from these excursions.
Accommodation and activities
Occasionally MoaTrek may need to make a variation to the listed accommodation. This accommodation will be of the same standard.

The law of this contract is the law of New Zealand.

Airport transfers in New Zealand are not included if travellers have pre or post tour accommodation booked outside the Tour Hotels.
The first and last day of most structured holidays is considered a travelling day and therefore depending on flight times may not necessarily be a whole day.
Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions we regret that we cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected by reason of circumstances amounting to “force majeure”. In these booking conditions, ‘force majeure’ means any event which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include war or threat of war, riots, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control.

Your suggestions of things to do in the areas we traveled were helpful. I enjoyed the beautiful and tasty buffet at Skyline Queenstown. What a view! We saw several rainbows as we ate dinner. It's too bad photos cannot capture what the eye can see. We will hold it in our memories.
Even though you indicated travel time, I was surprised at the amount of time we were in the car! There is nothing to be done about that. We did the things we wanted to do, which necessitated the hours it took to get to different places. Another week in your country would have relaxed the pace a little, of course. By the time we got to Queenstown, I was grateful to stay two nights there. While the others took a side trip to Glenorchy. I walked around town stopping at the library and the dock area, did some window shopping and wandered in the park. It was a fun time of getting the feel of the place and people watching.
While we saw a lot, we didn't see it all. It would be good to return sometime. We will look for you when 'sometime' arrives! Thanks again to you and Janice
