My wife and I have recently returned from a wonderful 16 day vacation in New Zealand, planned by Ahipara. We are very experienced travelers to many exotic places and found the process of working with Ahipara among the best. With their guidance, we had wonderful experiences with much of what this fabulous country has to offer. From lodging, food and wine, to exploration of the Maori culture, to bird and sea creature watching, to helicopter hiking on Fox Glacier, to a terrific helicopter tour of the Southern Alps – not to mention visiting Middle Earth – the guides and tour providers were excellent.

The planning process was very smooth, and they were very flexible in adjusting the initial suggested itinerary to accommodate our timing and budget. Turnaround of itinerary changes and reservations were very prompt. Most importantly, they watched over us during the trip to be sure everything was going smoothly, and made a few adjustments on the fly to accommodate weather issues.  I heartily recommend them for a memorable trip to New Zealand.
