This summer at MoaTours we were all really excited to be adding Aotea Great Barrier Island to our New Zealand small group tour programme.

For many of our guests it will be the first time they travel to this wonderful part of New Zealand. But what do our guides think of visiting Great Barrier?

Back in spring before the season got under way the MoaTours team all headed out to "the Barrier" to check out all the places included on our newest tour, our 5 day Aotea Great Barrier Island Escape tour.

Among the team was Kiwi Guide Tim, who was visiting for the first time and wrote a travel diary for us from that trip which we'd like to share with you here.

Please enjoy Kiwi Guide Tim's Aotea Great Barrier Island Escape.
