Young at Heart             ”To our Wonderful hosts John and Fiona

“As rather ‘senior’ citizens we were a little nervous about the activities and experiences we booked for, despite reassurances. Our ‘fears’ were put to rest instantly upon meeting John and Fiona, what a lovely couple and considerate ‘kiwis’.  Nothing was too much, Everything was perfect. The car was beautiful, spotless, safe and so comfortable, real luxury travel to such unique and diverse adventures. We jetboated just a little slower, we fished but in calm waters, we walked to waterfalls but short distances, we experienced such wonders with the Maori Culture, markets, arts and crafts and even milking the cows!. Thank you both so much, your not just a company but a wonderful couple and it was a great journey with great people”.

致我们最好的东家约翰和菲奥娜:

作为一个“老年人”,我原本对预定好的户外运动体验项目有点担心,但在遇到约翰和菲奥娜之后,我知道我们的“害怕”是多余的了。他们是一对非常可爱的当地“土著”夫妻,带我们体验的每一分钟都无比完美。我们玩了喷气艇漂流,那一艘点慢;我们在水中垂钓;结束后走去看了瀑布;去看了当地的毛利文化、集市、艺术品以及手工艺品,甚至还看到了挤奶牛!你们不仅仅是一个,旅行公司,更是一对优秀的夫妻,真是一个愉快的旅途。

“The events were magnificent, the dinners were wonderful, the hotels were beautiful, the vehicles luxurious. This has always been a lifetime dream of ours to travel to New Zealand. The entire trip was much more than I imagined or even expected it to be–and my expectations were pretty high. You meet and exceeded time and time again, from your personable natures, obvious passion, to being so extremely informative, as well as entertaining. We had a wonderful time. New Zealand is absolutely beautiful. We hope to return to see the South Island also one day. Thank you once again for a wonderful vacation and for the memories of a lifetime.”

Family Tour                To John/Fiona and the other great staff at Carrington Tours New Zealand

“Without doubt our most greatest choice was travelling with Carrington Tours. It was our first big family tour and along with you, choosing New Zealand and the North Island was incredible. John and Fiona our ‘guides’ but more so friends were just sensational with us all, the children constantly laughing and the experiences we had were perfect for us (Every night they went to bed with smiles on there faces which lasted all day, every day). From our very comfortable van, amazing hotels and fabulous farm stays including milking cows and shearing sheep (well sort of) to jet boating, swimming with dolphins, the most amazing Maori Culture shows, arts and food, Hobbiton Movie Set, Rotorua, fishing, kayaking to dinner (amazing experience). Yet amongst all this you allowed for Barbara and myself the opportunity for romantic beach walks and dinners alone whilst the kids were entertained, something we neglected to ask for but you included, this was so so special and yet another reason why you were so brilliant and considered so much more than just our guides. I cannot more highly recommend a company or group of wonderful people to enjoy New Zealand with, we always felt so safe and comfortable and we will without doubt be back and hope one day you will visit us, Thank you”.

Regards Toni, Barry, Simone, Andrea and Rosemary Cooper     Australian    2016     2 Day Tour of Waikato, scenic, hiking, adventure and sightseeing with 5 star accommodation option

In February this year we spent 11 fabulous days with Fiona exploring and experiencing the beautiful North Island of New Zealand’s countryside, culture and people. As regular travellers we are a little hard to impress such have been our fortunate history of travel, however without doubt this journey ranked in our top 3 and that is very high praise indeed and well deserved. We travelled in a beautiful car and Fiona made us feel safe and special as we took part, photographed and witnessed stunning countryside, magical waterfalls, geysers, Maori culture, arts and crafts and most heart stopping activities including Bungy jumping, off roading, black water rafting and sampling some world class wines and food along the way. As much as there was adrenalin rushes galore we had plenty of time to relax and enjoy each others company during our amazing Farm stays and restaurant dinners and scenic stops based on what we asked for,.

Our tour was everything you told us and more, much more. Our ‘journey’ was simply pure enjoyment with Fiona and we were amazed not only in the spectacular scenery, but also at the cleanliness and how safe we felt, as you know our group got very close with you Fiona, we highly recommend to others to make contact and enjoy your tour with Fiona and Carrington Tours New Zealand.

“Wonderful experience with Carrington Tours. In just a few days with John driving, informing, humouring and guiding us we travelled (in real luxury) throughout the North Island. On a limited time frame and budget we  were treated to adventure after adventure what was without doubt the real New Zealand. We were participants in cultural , farming, scenic, wildlife and unique activities. Thank you and best wishes”.
