Review by: C Bennett & C Gurteen
"Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful holiday in NZ even with the changes we needed to make along the way.
Your service was wonderful and I look forward to being able to recommend scenicpacific to others just as you were recommended to us.

TOUR TYPE - INDEPENDENT TOUR
Independent tours are not escorted group tours - they are for independent travellers. What this means is that it is not the same group of people travelling on their own coach with a tour leader/escort looking after you. You are travelling independently. However, you are picked up and dropped off at your accommodation each morning and evening and interesting commentary is provided on many sectors.
