I loved my time with Stray

I loved my time with Stray. Every guide is different and the destinations you visit are fantastic. Every day there was a Wow moment. Some advice: if you’re hopping off in peak season (December - March ) and need to organise accommodation, do it in advance to avoid disappointment. Your driver is a great source of information for your trip.

I had a really good time

I had a really good time travelling with Stray. As a solo traveller it was easy to meet new people and also a convenient mode of transport through New Zealand. I was glad I already booked the whole trip before I left home otherwise it would've been quite stressful to do so 'on the go' because I travelled in high season and a lot of the busses were full. This makes it not quite as flexible as advertised, but didn't really matter for me. Maybe you could offer a small group hop on hop off pass (as to the north and east).

Best trip ever!

Stray is the ONLY way to travel New Zealand. I travelled with Stray and it was quite possibly the best experience I’ve ever had. The driver was informative, we got into super remote places I would never have seen otherwise. Best trip ever!

Best travel experience

Just completed my second stray trip, my stray experience last year was hard to beat, but this year's experience was the best travel experience I’ve had! I met the loveliest people, did lots of fun activities and made so many great memories. It has honestly been the trip of a lifetime and I’ve made friends that will last forever.

Amazing

I never buy package tours and I am a very independent traveler and so I was reluctant to travel New Zealand with Stray but after speaking with backpackers who unanimously recommended their service and I decided to give it a try.
Wow! I met so many great people on a bus and shared some amazing adventures!!! Stray drivers are helpful and super friendly. They will go out of their way to help you out/advise on what places to go to/activities to embrace. The online booking systems very user-friendly so they really make sure that your vacation time is stress-free.
