It was the best excursion I could do through GYG! Our guide, Anujk, was top notch! The fact of being in a small group (instead of 50 million people as for other excursions) was very appreciable and pleasant and allows us to create links more easily. The landscapes were breathtaking and our guide (who was also our driver) had an impeccable driving. We did not see the 10h pass!

This tour was absolutely wonderful, so worth all the travelling! Our tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable which made the travelling part of the journey. All the stops are thought ahead and you have plenty of time in each place to enjoy it all! A perfect way to see what the South Island has to offer!

Amazing time, Anuj was excellent full of knowledge and so accomodating to everyone’s needs. This was the highlight of our trip, and a must see tour of the South Island.
