Lizzy - Thought I should write you a quick note while we are waiting at the airport for our flight to Australia. Thank you for all your assistance in planning our trip. Has really been a great trip! Feel like we saw a very good “slice” of New Zealand ... knowing that there is still a lot more to see if we ever get to come back. And if we do get a chance to come back, you will be one of the first people we call! Thanks again, Terry & LaurieTerry & Laurie

Thank you for all your hard work planning an amazing honeymoon for us! We absolutely had the trip of a lifetime! We took over 1900 pictures -- everywhere we turned there was a postcard photo! The itinerary you designed for us was amazing, and the perfect blend of active and luxurious. From the champagne you had for us at the Hilton, to your (daily!) calls to our lodging, to your lighting-fast text responses to us, we're so grateful for all of the little touches, too! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!Ryan & Corey

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.Chris Gebelein

We had a fantastic time in New Zealand! Really appreciated all of your help and responsiveness. You made things really easy. We actually did a seal snorkeling trip yesterday on our "free day" which was another great experience. The Factory was fantastic and the food and accommodations were great. The owners are really nice and we would highly recommend it to other clients you may have in the future. Thanks again for all of your help!Scott & Chloe

We were so thrilled to work with Ahipara on this holiday. We picked them because they worked exclusively with New Zealand, and because they specialized in one-on-one experiences, and they certainly didn’t disappoint. Their knowledge of the country and attention to every detail was exceptional.Ted Faiella & Lindsay Bosch
