Simon Acland

I could not mention all the highlights because there were so many. It really was a fantastic trip. We did not have any of those “I wish we’d made time to do that instead” moments, which is real testament to your expert local knowledge and your understanding of what we wanted to do. THANK YOU!!!

abel-tasman-4We travelled as a group of eight, all with different agendas and timescales – it was marvellous how you put it all together.  The two track walks on  Abel Tasman and the Milford Track were outstanding. And, of course, it was a particular highlight for me to meet up with our son. Thanks for all the organisation.

Brian and NickyWe had a fabulous holiday...not sure I can pick out the best bits! Tiri Tiri Matangi trip, Bay of Islands (dolphins), Kauri trees, Cathedral Cove, Tongariro, Queen Charlotte Sound in to Picton, Kaikoura Peninsular, Lake Matheson, Glaciers, Wanaka, Milford Sound, shotover jet in Queenstown, Mt Cook Hooker Valley walk.....all of it really!

The accommodation was all superb and we loved the book of prepaid vouchers...I know we've paid but not having to think about how much we were paying as we went along  made things more enjoyable somehow, especially given the excellent B&B's and hotels you found us and the 5 star nature of some of them!

I also want to say that directions to the various accommodations given in the final itinerary were spot on and took us straight there every time..I don't think we ever got lost which is impressive! Everywhere we stayed we found ourselves ideally positioned for whatever we were there for which was much appreciated and well thought out.

We loved the scenery everywhere we went...as one fellow tourist commented at the top of Mt Ruapehu it doesn't seem fair that one country should have everything! We never felt it was time to go home since there was always something special to look forward to the next day and the one after that...the four and a half weeks just touched the surface but we're so lucky to have been able to make the trip and will remember it for years to come.

Thank you for helping us to have the holiday of a lifetime. We are certainly recommending Silverfern to everyone we talk New Zealand to!

Barry & Maggie Westby

We had a great trip to New Zealand. Everything had been very well organised so we had a trouble-free experience, giving us the chance to visit some great places with a mixture of cities and beautiful scenery.

Silver Fern Holidays arranged excellent accommodation for us, with a good mixture of hotels, B&Bs and a farm stay.

There were many highlights but some stand out: a walk through the rainforest in Abel Tasman National Park, with stunning views of the sea; a night on a boat on Doubtful Sound, and watching the sunrise over Mount Cook reflected in the still waters of Lake Matheson at Fox Glacier.

Silver Fern Holidays gave us excellent guidance and advice and we have no hesitation in recommending them to others planning a visit to New Zealand.

Small Group Journey testimonial

We travelled with Silver Fern on one of their Small Group Journeys tours.

Very much enjoyed the superb Gallipoli exhibition at Te Papa Museum, Wellington.

Our train journey from Auckland to the Capital City, Wellington was brilliant and we loved the jet boat trip on our day out to Arthur’s Pass and the caves at Charleston.

A wonderful holiday!

Jan & Chris Gadsby

GadsbysFriends recommended Silver Fern to us, and we, in turn, would not hesitate in recommending Silver Fern to anyone who wants a tailor-made, hassle free dream of an experience in New Zealand and Singapore.

John's knowledge of New Zealand is incredible and his recommendations about bases, accommodation, excursions and fun activities were all spot-on for us - and for our budget.

We covered both islands, taking in 10 areas, and the well-planned, detailed itinerary, which included driving times, accurate directions and precise arrangements for car hire, internal flights and transfers, ran like clockwork.  Nothing was too much trouble for Silver Fern - even when circumstances dictated that we had to cancel everything and rebook it all later.

We have fantastic 60th birthday trip memories of our stay in New Zealand and Singapore.  Every bit of it was special!

Thank you, Silver Fern!  We will be back soon, asking you to organise another trip for us!
