Bringing you the best golf and travel in New Zealand
For 26+ years the Best of New Zealand team has traveled and organized bespoke itineraries to New Zealand. Our direct relationships and personal experiences combine to many decades of experience.
Frank Krieger is the newest member of the team and an avid golfer. If you plan to visit New Zealand and play golf while in the country, please reach out!
My wife and I, along with Sandy and George, arrived home about two weeks ago from a trip to New Zealand that you facilitated. The four of us have been traveling together for 47 years after meeting in a small Bed & Breakfast in London in 1971. We have traveled extensively in Europe, Canada, United States, and South America.
New Zealand was a distant stretch for us, and then we asked Julie for help on the recommendation of friends and she took us to you. And that was our lucky day!
The five weeks we spent in New Zealand were possibly the most seamless, best organized trip we have ever experienced. The accommodations were outstanding, everyone of them. The accommodations fit very well with the itinerary that we gave to you. Each and everyone exceeded our expectations from Auckland to Invercargill. The people we met in the B&Bs were very accommodating and attentive to all of our needs. We did not consider them as hosts but rather New Zealand friends. The food was excellent. Tour suggested excursions were always right on target.
I believe the only thing that would have made the trip better was to stay longer. This was meant to be a onetime experience, but already there has been suggestions of a return.
Thank you for your part of this fantastic adventure!

Frank and the Best of NZ team were exceptional in their planning
support and execution of our trip to NZ North Island. We gave them the
parameters - dates and golf courses we wanted to play and the pacing we
wanted for the trip in terms of days in each region - and they produced
an absolutely amazing trip for us. All of the arrangements were
flawlessly executed and we sailed through the trip effortlessly. their
expert advice - how much driving vs. in country driving would be
ideal for us to maximize our experience, the excursion to Cape Reinga
which was amazing, having our dinner prepared the first night after a
long day getting to Bay of Islands was perfect and the selection of
accommodations in Hawke's Bay was brilliant.
never forget the spectacular views from Kauri Cliffs golf course, the
jet boat rides in Taupo, cycling through the vineyards in Hawke's bay
and ending up sipping chardonnay with lunch at Clearview winery, the
splendor of playing golf among the birds and grounds at Wairakei, and of
course the spellbinding course at Cape Kidnappers. We could tell Best
of NZ have strong relationships in NZ because the people we encountered
in NZ as our guides/hosts reflected just that - professional and
friendly. NZ was an amazing, epic experience for us and we could not
have asked for better support and execution from Best of NZ/Frank and
his team. We cant wait to go back, this time to the South Island!!!!
Thanks again Frank, YOU are the Best and the Best of NZ is truly the BEST!!
