NO better way to see NZ! This is totally the best way to see a bit of the whole country and make sure you have it all done the easiest way. You can decide when to move on, but you know you won’t miss any of the best stops in the country! Love the flexibility but also love having someone (KIWI) around to take out a bit of planning stuff.
This was a pretty decent way to see the whole country! I took 5 weeks but maybe a bit more would be better. Also I’d take the chance to go in the summer if you can. Some of the South Island gets pretty cold!
Bought this pass on one of the sales and it was amazing value. Met loads of new friends and our guide was a total legend.
Chatted to Carla about the best pass for me (was torn between this and Stray) and Kiwi was perfect! Got it on sale too which basically paid for my Franz Josef Heli Hike! Winning!
