    We had a great time. The accommodation selected was very good. Traveling times for some were a bit long and taxing for the little ones but I suppose no choice but gave a us opportunity to make stops along the way to experience the views. Beautiful country and the whether was kind to us.

    We thought our trip was amazing! Mani was great to work with and made planning the trip very easy. All of the transfers/hotels/cars were ready and waiting for us. All the sights we saw were incredible. The pace of our trip was fast, but that was due to our time constraints rather than any planning issues. We are already looking forward to our next trip to New Zealand and would definitely use Relaxing Journeys.

    Mani was very accommodating and responsive to deal with! and so was Sally! Wish we had more time in NZ! It was a good balance between pre-planned activities and self planning and free time. Thankfully Mani knew what activities to book for us before we even knew! Loved, loved the Princes Gate Hotel, and the variety of all hotels booked. If anything could be improved, I supposed perhaps defining the hotels that we could choose from would be great, i.e. heritage vs modern. Would definitely use Relaxing Journeys again. Mani did the "heavy lifting" that I would normally have done on my own, made it a great vacation. Thanks Mani!

    We had the time of our lives and New Zealand is an incredible place. Marie did an awesome job with making all the arrangements. I wouldn't recommend the Queenstown accommodations but overall they were perfect for our needs.
