We had a wonderful trip with Alex! He is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, and also very patient and accommodating. On several mornings when we were late in starting off, he did not hurry us but waited patiently for us, which we are very appreciative! Alex also tried to understand the context of my daughter's questions from her perspective, and although I could tell that he was not very used to, and at times were bewildered by my daughter's questions, he still tried to answer each and every of her queries. My daughter was also appreciative of Alex's conversations with her and her soft toy, Russell (a toy kiwi, which we bought in Russell!) :)

During the long drives around North Island, Alex shared many nuggets of interesting facts about New Zealand, its Maori culture and history, geography as well as his own stories to help us appreciate the places that we visited. Alex's recommendations for dinner places were also spot on! :) Especially on our 1st (and only, unfortunately) night in Wellington, where we had dinner at restaurant Capitol, the chicken dish that my daughter had for dinner was so good that we even ordered another portion to take away!

I can safely say that our trip would not have been so enjoyable if we did not have such a friendly and helpful guide like Alex, and we look forward to visiting New Zealand again very soon (South Island, here we come!) and we will definitely look for The Road Trip and Alex to help us make the trip as enjoyable as our first trip!

The trip overall was good because we had a great guide, Zack. The hotels were advertised as 4 star, a couple were but the others not.

Hi Tom, Thanks for your honest review and guessing that Zeb was the guide you were referring to. Our star rating in New Zealand is graded by Qualmark and as such are all rated 3, 4 our 5 stars. As this is the national benchmark for New Zealand hotel standards this may differ overseas but rest assured these are ranked 4 star. For more information about the star ratings of hotels in New Zealand you can find more information under. https://www.qualmark.co.nz We work closely with our hotel providers and always appreciate the feedback off our guests. We are glad that you had such a great time with our guide as our staff always do a fantastic job of delivering our guides safely and with a high service level both throughout New Zealand and Australia. Kind Regards Chris Cameron
