Questions and Answers
We custom design your travel to New Zealand at your price, your way. Kiwi owned and operated, we provide a one-stop shop for all your NZ travel needs.

1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?

We have been operating since 2005 after discovering through postgraduate university research that visitors to New Zealand were paying too much for their vacations, being offered poor accommodation and activity options, with little or no on-the-ground service from their travel agent. Having a New Zealand based agency plan, book and look after our client's needs removes a lot of hassle out of the travel process for visitors.

To deliver our clients outstanding New Zealand vacations. We are passionate and highly qualified kiwis who want to share the best of our country with you, the visitor.

3. What does your company specialize in?

Custom and pre-organized travel itineraries to New Zealand. We tailor travel packages for all tastes, budgets and group sizes.

4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?

Phillip completed a Masters degree in Tourism Management (MTM) at Victoria University in 2005. Prior to that he worked across many tourism sectors including tourism development at a nature reserve in Wellington, New Zealand; opening and marketing hotels in Wellington and in the activity sector in Milford Sound. He now also owns a lodge in stunning Queenstown.

5. What is your most popular travel package and why?

28 Day Ultimate New Zealand Package. Because it takes in the best of what New Zealand has to offer! Our Queenstown/Fiordland getaway package is also incredibly popular as it is such terrific value for money!

Thanks, Phillip, and thanks again for making our trip so memorable. We are here for our last night, at the Christchurch B&B and leave tomorrow for home. We ... view more had a fantastic time and will recommend you to all our friends!

M19742 planned and arranged all the details for our two week trip to New Zealand. I had no idea where I wanted to go and what I wanted to see. Katie & ... view more Phillip worked with me to customize the perfect itinerary for us. They are the experts in the field, having inside information on the best hotels, bed and breakfasts and apartments within walking distance of all major attractions, at a great price.

I have traveled the world, and this, by far, was the best value and most entertaining trip I have taken. I would highly recommend this group to anyone wanting to take the trip of a lifetime! I will never forget the helicopter trip to the top of Sutherland Falls, awesome, and the 800+ pictures of this beautiful country attest to that.

Thanks M19742!

 3  Katie Kendrick What a Fantastic trip!!! 2009-10-13
I am so happy I found these guys! I dreamed of traveling to New Zealand for the past six years, hence was quite nervous about finding a travel agent that would ... view more actually deliver on their promises. I wanted someone who was a genuine local to the area but that also could give me the best value within my very tight budget for a tour of both islands.

After contacting 12 different agents, I got a quote from M19742 that was not only $2500 below all the other quotes, but offered a Lot more than the others in activities / accommodations. I couldn\'t believe how much mark-up the American agencies had on trips to NZ, they really take advantage of the currency difference.

Phillip had such comprehensive knowledge, was there for me every step of the way (even arranged new transfer for me in just Five mins. when I missed my bus!!) and fit everything in for $50 under my budget!

No travel agency has ever given me a 1st class experience like this.. Especially for the price. This is the best value I\'ve ever gotten for my money, hands down. I can\'t wait for my next trip- thank you for making my dream come true M19742!

I booked my trip through M19742 in short notice, with a strict budget and some vague travel ideas in the area I wanted. I was also travelling with a toddler. ... view more M19742 had the best knowledge of the South Island and gave me great prices and options to choose from in the areas i visited.

The service was very informative, quick and gave very good time vs mileage advice as I had no road map! I have recommended this company to friends and will definitely use them again for my New Zealand travels. I travelled to Tekapo, Queenstown, Te Anau, Millford Sound and the West Coast of the South Island.

Thanks M19742 - Awesome!
