Everything about First Light Travel was easy - right from our first conversation to following the thoughtful itinerary during our holiday. My husband and I are crazy busy (like everyone!) and so it was wonderful to be able to brief Natalie on the holiday we hoped for and then let her take the reigns and organise it for us. Our holiday was everything we hoped it would be and more. We have created beautiful memories that we'll cherish forever. I highly recommend First Light Travel and will definitely use them again in the future.

Thank you Natalie!

Our thanks to First Light Travel (and Emma) for a truly wonderful experience. Booking was so easy, your experts were always on hand with advice and help. The suggested itinerary exactly matched our needs and made for a great time. We look forward to making another booking with you.

My husband and I celebrated our 20 year wedding anniversary with a trip to the top end. We will hold such fantastic memories from this trip forever! Everything that was planned for us by First Light Travel was perfect for the kind of trip we enjoy. We love our independence and prefer to travel that way, and First Light Travel custom designed our trip based on our preferences.

We enjoy adventure and also some downtime, and felt we had such a great balance of both. I loved having an itinerary with all the important information in one place, from car hire details to hotel check in times, addresses and more. It made for a seamless trip between various accommodation places and tours.

I highly recommend First Light Travel for peace of mind regarding better accommodation choices, available tours and ideal travel times. Also their communication was top notch! I always received a prompt response to any queries I had.

Using First Light Travel for our trip made for one of the best getaways we have enjoyed!

Thank you!

We wouldn’t have managed to build such a great itinerary on own. Our consultants were patient and excellent. We had a change of consultant midway but it wasn’t an issue. I recommend Firstlight to anyone who needs help pulling it all together. People don’t realize home much effort goes into building itineraries, successfully planning scheduling and booking these holiday. Well done Salli, Natalie and Team.

Our travel agent Emma was great and our itinerary was tailored perfectly for our family interests and fitness. The holiday was well organised and easy to use. We had no problems with transportation ( car, train and flights), the accommodation was great and all trip vouchers were well-received ( didn't need to worry about bringing cash). Overall experience was great, the family loved every minute of it.

We would definitely use First First Light Travel again.

Salli from first light travel was a pleasure to deal with, we changed holiday locations and demands regularly and this was never an issue, Salli had our changes completed and back to us in under an hour. The holiday was everything we expected and more. Will defiantly be using them to plan a holiday in the near future again.

We had the pleasure of working with Toni who planned a perfect trip for us! We gave her an idea of what we wanted to do and she came up with our awesome itinerary.
 We enjoyed all the trips that were planned for us. We especially appreciated that we were able to weave some free time into each of the locations we visited. It helped to make our adventure so personal to our needs.
First and foremost I have to compliment Toni on the choice of accommodations. They were all just perfect for the locations and our needs. All of them had kitchen facilities and in-room/or on property laundry. All were perfectly located to what we wanted to do. 

For example, we were planning on hiking in the Abel Tasman National Park and we could walk to the park's entrance from our chalet, which was just fantastic.

First Light Travel was very responsive when we had to cancel the last 5 days of our trip due to COVID-19. We appreciated how quickly they got back to us.
All in all we would say that our adventure to Australia and New Zealand was everything we hoped for and more. We know that Toni and First Light Travel helped to make it happen.

We cannot wait to come back to New Zealand. We will certainly have First Light Travel plan our trip.

My husband and I are experienced travelers and I typically do all the travel planning and booking for our international trips. We are comfortable with public transportation and negotiating our way around new cities. However, anything that I could have planned would not be in any way equivalent to the experience we enjoyed in our 3 1/2 week tour of Australia planned by FIRST LIGHT TRAVEL. Not only did they help us select tours and accommodations that we wouldn't have known about, but they were there when there was an unexpected change in itinerary or when we had any questions or concerns. I would recommend them to anyone who is traveling to Australia or New Zealand.

Hello Shelley,

I hope all is well.  I just wanted to take this time to say "THANK YOU!".  I appreciate the time and effort you put into setting up a fabulous trip.  It was the trip of a lifetime.  I appreciated every aspect of my travel and the places that I visited.  Accommodations were wonderful and each place I stayed was very comfortable.  It seems you put the package together in just the right way.  When I needed some time to rest, I had that in my schedule with having either the morning off before a tour or the afternoon/evening after a tour.  You made this vacation a breeze.  All I had to do is be where the itinerary said to be and the time indicated. 

Australia was wonderful, but New Zealand was spectacular.  New Zealand has to be one of the most beautiful countries I have ever visited.  I have memories that will be with me forever.  So thank you for all that you did to allow me to be able to have a beautiful experience.  It really pays to have someone who is familiar with the countries you are touring to put something together based on your interests.  You listened to what I wanted and delivered.  I have already recommended you to a colleague who is interested in traveling to Australia and New Zealand.  I will continue to recommend you to anyone I know that ask about Australia and/or New Zealand.  You definitely have one completely satisfied customer in me.  Thank you again.   With great regard.
