I love travelling with Intrepid. Though the destinations are different the style of travel is predictable and comfortable - 12 -15 people, adequate lodging close to activities, knowledgeable and organized trip leaders who know my time is valuable, and an itinerary that hits the highlights that time allows.

Going with Intrepid means you will be active, do activities you never imagined doing, put up with fairly basic accommodations, have a knowledgeable tour leader, laugh often, and make many new friends. You will also come home feeling you have genuinely seen another part of the world.

I enjoyed the trip. It was a great way to have a quick look around New Zealand and to plan further visits to the places you liked the best. As well as great scenery the food was also very good especially the coffee, cakes, ice cream and fish/chips.
