Adventure South Travel is professional in every aspect. The pre-holiday support was spot on and the quality of the guides are the as good as any we have had on many similar holidays. The guides had good knowledge of the places visited, accommodated everyone's needs with the diversity of ages. We are 60+ and are planning more holidays with Adventure South because of the quality service they provide.

Our guide, Steve, was most pleasant, knowledgeable, fit, and unparalleled in providing the best he could for all of us. The only criticism would be the extra curricular activities, such as a game of pool at a pub, the ice rink curling, etc. could be more up-to-date on actual time frames and costs so one could assess our personal preferences with these options. As to curling, a skilled sport, perhaps more structure to learn and practice would be a suggestion instead of attempting to play competitively with unskilled teams -- it only leads to frustration amongst those who know the game and those with virtually no concept of what was taught during the introduction lesson and video.

Being in New Zealand for six months I always planned to do a bike trip. I had heard how popular it was and it is something I enjoy doing. I heard that the Otago Rail Trail was very popular and had some amazing views and landscapes. Booking with Adventure South was superb and made made the whole experience super. There guides were amazing and always helping where needed. Having support along the way really has its benefits and gives everyone the chance to hop on and off where they like. Having everything arranged before hand was also super and increase the whole experience. The company on the tour was also great and met some great people.

I would definitely book with them again.
