A Must do in NZ
, Apr 2020
We were booked for the early morning tour, but the weather wasn’t favorable so they rebooked us for an afternoon tour. I’m so glad we waited and did the tour, it was one of the most amazing experiences. Our guide was super nice and very knowledge. Definitely a must do in NZ.
