My husband and I will be doing a NZ cruize in February, 2011. I am between Indigenous Trails and Mt Classic Tours. Was there anything that helped you to decide on Indigenous Trails?

Hi ,

We original were going to go with Mount Classic but after sending a number of emails off had not heard anything back ( Still haven't) I then found Indigenous Trails and Des from Indigenous Trails was more then helpful and very quick in answering all my question and felt that their tours would offer that personal touch.

We are also doing a cruise in Feb what cruise are you going on?

Indigenous Trails is a good choice! You will be impressed with the hands on service and inside knowledge that they offer, great insight into Maori Culture.

I am surprised that you haven't had any contact from Mt Classic Tours, they are also a great company and are very popular.

I booked 3 shore excursions with Itrails for January 2011 and according to their Terms and Conditions payment will be taken 14 days before commencement of the first tour. We were charged the full amount in August,with no advice from Itrails,we noticed it on our credit card statement.We immediately contacted Des Harris in September and were promised an immediate refund.To date,after several emails and phone conversations with Des Harris,we have received a refund of 37% and have now had to resort to claiming the remaining money back via our credit card company !

Please make your own mind up about booking with Itrails. I am rebooking elsewhere.

Hi GAPeach. Have just seen your posting re getting hold of Mount Classic Tours. Our apologies, we have had some technical issues with our contact form from our website. I trust that you now have your tours sorted, but if you need further assistance you can contact me on info@mctours.co.nz.

Kind regards
