Client Comments

"Helen Foo at Experience NZ was a pleasure to work with. She was given very little time to plan an exciting and thorough itinerary for our family. We knew that it would be a challenge because we were traveling during the last week of December and the first week of January and wanted to cover a lot of territory in a relatively short time. She had wonderful suggestions for where we should go and what we should do. She was attentive and efficient and the result was a fantastic itinerary that was perfect for us. All of the connections were smooth and efficient, the accommodations were great choices, and the activities were interesting, exciting, fun, and memorable. We had a terrific holiday and are already looking forward to a return visit. We will definitely call Helen to work with again. And we have already recommended her to several of our friends who are planning holidays in New Zealand. Thank you to Helen Foo and to Experience NZ for helping us plan a wonderful and memorable trip.
