Welcome to New Zealand at its Best

“Congratulations on publishing the 2015-16 edition of Organic Explorer. 

The book is a terrific collection of New Zealand eco travel experiences ranging from well-known major operators to hidden gems throughout the country.

It’ll be a great travel companion for anyone exploring New Zealand and wanting to hunt out the best eco experiences on offer. 

I wish you every success with your book”.
