Wow! What more can we say, this was the trip of a lifetime made possible by Rob and the Kiwi Does It team. Planning a trip to NZ from a far distance like New York City can be a bit overwhelming and almost impossible on your own. Thank god we found Rob!!! From our very first conversation with him we knew that he was the guy to help us plan the experience of a lifetime! He not only planned the perfect honeymoon for us but the execution of this trip was just seamless. From plane transfers to car transportation to ferries, helicopters etc it was all carried out with such ease that all we had to do was show up. The lodges and locations were second to none! Rob listened to our likes and dislikes, style and age and hand picked the best of the best in both locations and lodging. The part that we couldn't put a price tag on was despite all the activities and plane transfers etc is that we still were able to relax at night because we knew that every part of our trip was being handled and continuously looked after by a true professional. We cannot wait to work with Rob again and we are truly grateful for the time and effort that he put in to make this NZ experience the trip of a lifetime and one that we will never forget.Maria & Matt, USA
Rob was top notch. Everything he recommended exceeded (very Wow!) our expectations. We loved hiking, biking, eating and visiting wildlife in Queenstown, Arrowtown and Wanaka. We loved the winery/restaurant outside Queenstown. We enjoyed Roy in Rotorua. He knew the area well and was an excellent guide for sightseeing and for recommendations. We really enjoyed Hobbiton and the kiwi exhibit.Carol & Joe, USA
From our first phone conversation to the “welcome home” email after our trip, Rob and his crew were extremely helpful! They really listened when we told them what we were hoping to get out of this trip, our honeymoon. They exceeded our expectations in every way, the trip was exactly what we have envisioned but better. Everything was as simple as showing up and giving our name, how relaxing! Rob made himself available at anytime but, the only reason we ever contacted him was so we could have a chance to meet, what fun that was!Kasen & Amanda, USA
Rob - everything was great. We really enjoyed all three places, our adventures were awesome and the helicopter trip was definitely the highlight of the week.Ken & Vickie, USA
We had a fantastic holiday and we really appreciate all of your efforts to accommodate our changes of plans. All of the lodging was great, the guides were all very enjoyable, and our excursions were fun and interesting.Andrew & Liz, USA
Rob - I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance planning our amazing vacation to New Zealand. The lodges, people, food, activities and scenery were all top notch and we can't stop raving about our experiences. Thank you for all of your work helping to organize us - we felt truly cared for along each step and we both left feeling relaxed and refreshed. The food was really a highlight.Jen & James, USA
If you're planning a trip to New Zealand...from a couple of days to a month or more...my husband and I cannot recommend KDI highly enough. We travel regularly all over the world staying primarily at 5-star hotels and resorts, so KDI knew what our standard was. We were extremely delighted to find that without exception, every venue we visited was on the level we are used to experiencing. In addition, KDI took all of our jumbled thoughts about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see and wove them into a beautiful tapestry of experiences. This was a trip to remember! If you're looking for a very personalized touch from a company that excels at exceeding customer expectations, give KDI a go. You'll be blown away.Julie & David, USA

Our entire NZ experience was outstanding. Spot on, detail-oriented pre trip planning (thank you Rob) meant no on the ground unpleasant surprises. 100% professionalism, superb local knowledge and people that really care about making your trip special - KDI is as good as it gets. 24/7 in country communication (thank you again Rob), meant no "on the fly" detail too much to deal with.
Completely wowed... Rob organised a ski holiday in Whistler for us and served as our ski guide. He did everything from going toboganing with our kids to accompanying them on zip lining and snowmobiling adventures. Relating well to all members of a family of five requires a host of skills, and Rob has them all!Buckley Family, Canada
Fabulous Kauri Cliifs Experience - every international keen golfer should visit this course.Johnny and Neil, NZ
Rob - everything was top drawer! Thank you for everything.Bowers & Schremp, USA
I'm not sure where to start... It was such a fabulous trip that words can never describe our visit to NZ. I'm not sure how you pulled off cueing the weather, wildlife and unexpected surprises but your enthusiam and passion for your country certainly shone through as you showed us the best of NZ. We'll remember our time there very fondly.Wilson Family, Canada
