"I am a New Zealander who is working at  UW-SP. When I saw that there was a tour to NZ, I was keen to see the itinerary to see where the group would be going in my home country. I just wanted to compliment you on putting together a very balanced trip; there is a great mix of culture, scenery, adventure, nature, tourist location and slightly off the beaten track."   - Shona Duncan (UWSP Employee & native NZlander)
