I am fortunate enough to travel extensively and to have travelled with many luxury travel companies. I can honestly say that Antipodean surpassed my expectations in every way and have created a new standard for the luxury travel industry. I loved their intimate knowledge of their market and their holistic and innovative approach to travel. Prior to departure, we received emails recommending relevant apps, recommendations for restaurants and coffee shops, advice on what to pack, etc. Alexandra and her team were on standby constantly to see how we were doing, to ask for feedback, and to update us on any changes in the plan. I would highly recommend Antipodean to anyone looking for one of the best travel providers in the market.
We have already told Dean that we will organise another trip to New Zealand to see what we didn’t see. We did a few days North Island but the rest of our holiday was south island. We will definitely use Antipodean again.
I gave her my brief and then she was really good at organising the holiday as I needed someone to help us decide on where to go in New Zealand, she was really good at building a holiday with 2 boys, parents and our mother in law. I would love to go back to NZ, I’d probably do both North and South Island again, there is just so much to see. New Zealand is just breathtaking, it’s stunning there is just so much to see, and the people are absolutely lovely, so friendly. I won't look at anyone else as I really like Alexandra and the suggestions she made about our holiday. She had amazing local knowledge and Dean as well.
Alexandra listened really well to the brief and showed a lot of creativity in selecting the activities on the trip. I liked that it was a tailor made holiday just for us, and we were able to add in extra activities to do as well while we were there. The itinerary was really easy to follow and it even gave driving instructions for the south island and estimated travel times which helped us when we were planning our days and driving. Every part of the trip was planned right down to the finest detail and we absolutely got what we asked for in their brief. I would love to do another trip this time around the North Island in a couple of year’s time.
What I really liked about Antipodean was that they built us a tailor made package and they specialised in just New Zealand. Plus I liked the fact that Alexandra is from New Zealand, so she could give really good input and insights into the tours she was suggesting for us, and had a lot of local knowledge. Alexandra really understood what I wanted and built our dream holiday with the helicopter ride with the All Black Richie McCaw, which my husband loved! Alexandra ran through all the itinerary options with me. I then booked the trip as I was in charge of booking our honeymoon and organising it all.
I really liked that Alexandra provided lots of useful information, and has so much local knowledge. While we were on our honeymoon I really liked that Alexandra sent us daily texts each day about our planned itinerary for that day, and we knew that if anything went wrong they would be easy to contact.

New Zealand is a stunningly beautiful country, with super friendly locals, and if you want to get the inside track on making the most of your holiday time there, then Antipodean are the people to talk to.
We had an awesome long-awaited vacation in New Zealand with all the assistance rendered by the Antipodean Luxury Travel team. It was our 3rd trip to NZ and we are very blessed to engage Antipodean this time round. We are grateful for the great work by the Antipodean team, given the short span of time given to them to plan for all activities based on our interests and budget. They are well-organised and always keep in touch with us during our trip to make sure that everything goes well as planned. Indeed, true to its values, there are also no lack of personal touches, promptness and diverse knowledge. Antipodean is definitely highly recommended and in actual fact, we have already recommended to our potential relatives and friends. This is because we have confidence in the Antipodean team to provide them with a splendid experience which goes beyond expectations. We look forward to booking our next holiday with Antipodean in the near future! 🙂
They did a fantastic job planning our vacation, it was all we were expecting and more, they also provided a great support during our trip, were available for us all the time which made unexpected changes very easy to manage. Their app was an incredible tool to have our schedule at hand every day. They are a very professional, knowable, caring and friendly team, it was a pleasure to work with them.
Antipodean Luxury Travel provided a truly wonderful unforgettable experience and made my tour of South Island a lifetime of memories. They were very helpful in recommending experiences which I thoroughly enjoyed as well. The highlights of my trip were my glider flight at Omarama and the Earth and Sky at Mount John Observatory in Lake Tekapo. Dean and his team were prompt in responding to all my questions and recommended some great places to eat like the New Zealand whitebait which I loved. I highly recommend them for their services and cannot wait until my next visit down South. You definitely will not be disappointed in visiting one of the most beautiful countries on the planet with their help.
We wanted to express our deepest gratitude for the incredibly well thought-out travel experience you arranged for Lucas and I in New Zealand. It has completely changed my perception of travelling and I would definitely consider a travel organiser in the future. Your engagement from the start with prompt feedback and interesting suggestions got us excited, but I was most amazed by the personalised website compatible with smartphone viewing, that detailed our day-by-day itinerary, including maps, directions, activity and F&B recommendations. The small gestures of notes in some of the hotels was also a nice touch. All in all, it was an experience of a lifetime, with beautiful memories to last forever. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for taking the hassle of out organising a much needed vacation – everything fell into place like clockwork, it was nearly too good to be true!
We cannot thank Antipodean enough for helping us organise our Lions tour to New Zealand. From start to finish she went the extra mile to ensure that our once in a lifetime trip was one that we would never forget. From watching the Lions versus the All Blacks to exploring some amazing wineries on Waiheke Island, we all had a fantastic time. If anyone is considering New Zealand as a holiday destination, I would highly recommend Antipodean Luxury Travel.
Will definitely recommend your service to my friends!
By far you have been the most professional travel professional we've dealt with.
Having moved to Singapore New Zealand was an obvious choice as a “must do”. By luck, we were introduced to Antipodean Luxury Travel. After sharing various itinerary options with us, we opted to explore mainly the South Island with a quick stop in both Auckland & Wellington in the North Island. Antipodean were fantastic, they clearly laid out a variety of options in each place. Thanks to the team at Antipodean who were friendly, efficient and helped to make an amazing holiday even better! We will definitely be in touch to arrange our North Island trip next!!
My wife and I went to New Zealand and we loved it. I wanted to go mountain biking, my wife wanted to relax, we both wanted to try lots of restaurants. We were able to do all the things we enjoy without feeling touristy. Antipodean Luxury Travel had extensive local knowledge and gave us great service from start to finish, thanks Antipodean for an amazing holiday. We will be going back with Antipodean next year.
I will be forever thankful to Antipodean Luxury Travel, not only for organising an unforgettable trip to New Zealand, but for encouraging me to push my adventure thresholds by trying new experiences like heli-biking. They also helped plan the perfect engagement setting that I will never forget. It was supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime trip, but they did such a great job that I am already thinking about a return trip!
We had a wonderful Christmas trip to New Zealand with our family and we loved all the personal touches that Antipodean suggested. The best thing about New Zealand is that there are so many things to do with your children, getting outdoors, wine tours and enjoying time together as a family. Everything was very well organised and the New Zealanders were very friendly. I would recommend Antipodean Luxury Travel if you are wanting to travel to New Zealand with your family.
Go with Antipodean Luxury Travel if you desire “out of this world” luxurious adventures tailored to suit your style!!!
The fantastic and extremely responsive services provided, and we would definitely recommend to friends and relatives.
Me and my husband really enjoyed the whole trip. Antipodean was really well prepared and also responsible to help all of us with any request. Thank you for making us a wonderful trip and a memorable one too!
Quick response, nice & responsible tour guide, luxury arrangement.
Words cannot describe the beauty of New Zealand and Antipodean has helped us plan the most amazing vacation and create some of the best memories which will last us a lifetime. I am in the midst of viewing my photos from the trip and cannot wait to return.
I had plan our for a trip to New Zealand but I didn’t have enough time to do the detailed research of the places to visit during our 12 day holiday. I was super glad to find Alexandra and her team that made this magical trip happen. The details of the arrangement for both North and South Island pretty much touched on everything my family and I needed. The constantly changing weather during the period that we were there also meant we needed to shift plans fairly quickly. Antipodean Luxury Travel was always in touch to make sure that we got the best out of the holiday. We almost thought they had “arranged the weather too!” The local guides that worked with Antipodean were all very knowledgeable and always went the extra mile to show us around. And not to mention, they were extra accommodating for my little girl. Guess that’s the advantage of Alexandra and Dean being Kiwis themselves. Would definitely recommend the company to our friends and we have already done that.
