As one traveller commented, “Being a widow, I wanted to meet and share experiences with like-minded people who are passionate about living life to the fullest. I thoroughly enjoyed every day and its experiences. Everlasting memories. Trip of a lifetime. Learnt so much of New Zealand’s history and culture.
