First Light Travel did a great job planning our 5 week honeymoon to New Zealand! Our advisor, Michelle was very knowledgeable and helpful in creating a tailored itinerary for us.

We had a wonderful time and when the unexpected happened - we were booked for the White Island Volcano tour 1 week after the tragic eruption happened - FirstLight refunded any cancelled activities and had an alternative itinerary ready.

Thank you for making our honeymoon exceptional! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to tour NZ!

My kids and I just returned from an amazing 15 day trip to New Zealand. Natalie at First Light Travel was bang on with her itinerary for us. I told her that I wanted to just stay on the North Island; I didn't want to drive every day; I didn't want to spend a lot of money on accommodations; and we wanted to do more things outside and not spend time in big cities. We loved all the locations we stayed at. We spent 2-3 nights at each one so we were able to relax and really enjoy everything around us. The itinerary suggested different things to do at each place so we tried to do and see what there was, on our own time. It's hard to choose what was our most favorite thing we did or saw...but if you get a chance, I would check out the NZ River Net and do the Squeeze tour. So much fun! I look forward to planning my trip with Natalie when I am ready to explore the South Island :)

Just completed a three week tour on NZ and Shelley at First Light Travel was amazing. She managed to rearrange some of our activities in the South Island which were impacted by the recent exceptional railfall. Overall the tour was excellent with the highlights being the Tongoriro Crossing, a Heli Hike on Fox Glacier and a scenic flight over Milford Sound

Kasey helped us put together a good plan for 4 weeks in South Australia and helped us make changes as needed when weather and fire season forced us to make some new plans during the trip.
Bra gjort! Jag kan rekommendera dem.
