... Basically I cannot say enough good things about Love My New Zealand and the detail that went into our day (at the Hobbiton and Glow Worms Kayaking Combo tour). I would (and have been) recommending Love My New Zealand excursions to anybody visiting (New Zealand). You really will not regret it. ”

This trip was incredibly special for us. We thought combining the adventure with some luxury was a great idea. We were not wrong! We were even able to change for dinner into nice warm clothes and the heated seats in their vehicle made me sleepy all the way home. Great job guys!”
