My wife and I are still on cloud 9. Kay and Tony did an amazing job taking our interests - being adventurous and outdoorsy, while also enjoying wine and food - and built a unique itinerary for us to have the honeymoon of a lifetime! Not only was Luxury Adventures hands-on during the planning process, but Tony was also very hands-on during the trip, making sure that everything was going well. We are already thinking about our next trip to explore the rest of NZ and looking forward to using Luxury Adventures in the future.
