Brilliant holiday if you want to clear your head and get away from it all. Stunning views, amazing local food and practically no extra expenses (apart from lunch and dinner on a free day). I was really surprised that such a dramatic, unspoilt place still existed in a 2-hours flight distance from London.
Trip spoilt by the group being split into 2 vehicles, a major amount of the time is spent travelling and no intransit info possible due to this. Vehicles were very poor with broken seat backs and no room for day packs in vehicle.
Great scenery and great biking with an excellent leader (Liz) & support crew. I would have liked more singletrack and also many of the group had little off road mountain bike experience which affected the dynamic of the group.
There were undoubtedly a good many positive aspects of this trip. But the trip notes and web site information were not sufficiently open regarding the negatives (see below) to give a realistic view of the problems associated with making the trip at this time of year.
New Zealand exceeded my expectations and the trip provided even more than the brochure promises. The value for money was exceptional. There was such a diversity of landscape and no end to the opportunities to explore it to the full.
This was a brilliant trip and offers a more interesting walk than just going up to Everest Base Camp and back the same way. You walk round in a loop so each day is different and the view from Gokyo Ri is not to be missed!
