Our Partners & Accreditation

“Most amazing tour ever!”

We spent 2 days with KI Odysseys. Gaylene and Nikki  did a wonderful job!

In the wild we saw an echidna digging near the road, koalas in trees above us several places and times, kangaroos grazing close by, wallabies in a wooded area, a goanna in a field, many fur seals on the rocks and in the surf, and sea lions on the beach and dunes. And the lunches and accompanying wines were excellent!

If we had to pick a single highlight from our 6 weeks in NZ and Australia, this would be it!
