Update on the earthquake in New Zealand.
New Zealand is getting back to normal except for the one small area of Kaikoura. The ferries have begun operating again, two of the three trains are operating, and none of the accommodations we work with have been affected by the earthquake.
We do apologize if we have been slow getting back to you but we have been assisting the people in New Zealand with the alterations in their travel plans.
The people of New Zealand are fantastic! They are very hard-working and industrious and have a lot of experience in getting their country back to normal quickly.
Please be assured that we are watching over your trip and if changes are needed we will be in touch with you
Whether you are exploring by land and looking for activities or via a cruise and looking for shore excursions, New Zealand offers such an incredible variety of experiences that it is sometimes called “The World in Miniature”.
