Do you think hiring a local experienced tour guide is worthwhile when you're on an overseas holiday?
Let me tell you how I learnt of it.
🏆 20 years ago, I was one of Top 10 Backpackers in China. With that Do-It-Yourself mentality, I travelled to New Zealand alone in 2002.
After half year English study in Auckland, I organised myself a 3-week self-drive road trip around the country.
🚘 My car broken down just on the second day, and I ended up with a serious car accident. Thank God, I wasn’t hurt physically (but scared to death!😱)
Nothing could stop me. After a short rest, I joined a guided group tour, did bungy jumping, gold panning, Milford Sound cruising, meeting interesting travellers from other countries...
🏖 I had an unforgettable experience in my first holiday tour in New Zealand. It’s safe, informative, worry-free and tons of fun. That’s a real holiday!!
I’d like to forget but I want to share with you that the price, time and stress I paid to get my car repaired, accommodation cancelled and rebooked, the court case sorted were tremendous. 😰
🎯 Being always passionate about travelling, I’d learnt the lesson from my trip, and then I studied Travel & Tourism Management in New Zealand.
