How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Stefan was both an efficient and a caring Tour Leader- he really does enjoy his role. He is very knowledgeable about local wild life and the forest walks we did with him were quite inspiring.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
" - Budget for some optional activities such as the helicopter flight to Fox Glacier and the kayaking - fairly expensive but well worth it.
- Take a few long-sleeved cotton shirts (I didn't) as protection against deceptively mild sunshine and West Coast sandflies.
- If you are worried about 24 hours in a plane and you have enough time, cosider booking flights with stop-overs. "
Do you have anything else to add?
This holiday met - exceeded - my expectations. The standard of hotels/motels was high and this was compensation for early starts and long mini-bus rides. And the smallish group (12) of like (i.e.Explore)-minded people was another bonus.
