Travelling New Zealand couldn’t be easier with the Kiwi Experience, these guys will take you around various routes of NZ, hitting up all the hotspots of the north and south islands. Choose a route best suited to you and your time frame and the kiwi ex crew will do the rest! They also guarantee you at least 1 hostel night at each location (which is awesome in busy periods).
