Excellent Trip & Friendly, Professional Service

From the moment we landed in Auckland, we felt so welcome and well prepared for a wonderful trip. Prior to our arrival, Melissa Bates at Seasonz Travel helped to create an amazing itinerary from our preferences to make the most of our two weeks in New Zealand. Beginning on Day One when she met us at our hotel, we were ready for each day's events and travel transports. She always checked in with us and was way ahead of bad weather to rearrange plans, such as our Milford Sound Helicopter Excursion and Glacier Landing. In addition, Melissa was professional, friendly, and flexible to make adjustments along the way. We got to experience so much of New Zealand's natural beauty both on the North and South Islands. We also came away with a deep appreciation of its rich culture and wonderful people. Thanks to Seasonz Travel and Melissa Bates in particular, my family loves New Zealand and hopes to return again.

The best planning and then hand-holding through our 2 weeks in New Zealand. All the locations were ready for us, the drivers had personalized music, the staff and guides very accomodating. Melissa was always on call and made some on the fly adjustments. A once in a lifetime experience.

The tour guides they picked were very good, as was their assistance when one of our flights got canceled. Latter was done remotely, but I appreciated the fact that they were proactive in calling. I am not sure I will be able to comment later in this review, however the one thing they (I assume) recommended which was seriously not value for money was the Marlborough Lodge in Blenheim. I don't know if they would agree but $3200 for two nights I thought would provide something extremely special. It wasn't. All other hotels and activities were very good.

Seasonz assistance in New Zealand

We had the best experience with Seasonz. Ferris was our advisor on the ground. From the time we arrived, Ferris was checking in to make sure that all was running smoothly. One of our sons that was meeting us from Sydney completely missed his flight (his fault). Ferris whipped into action and got him to us without us feeling the stress that I'm sure was involved with getting him where he needed to be. Anytime we had a question, Ferris was prompt to answer whether is was day or night. She offered to help us and did help us with anything we needed. It was such a relief to know that Ferris was a simple phone call or text away. I would highly recommend Seasonz for their professionalism, knowledge and efficiency. Thank you Seasonz and Ferris for making our trip fabulous!
