I am from the deep south of New Zealand and heard about Trailblazers through an invitation of a friend who knew a friend who had been on a trip before. I went into the unknown with Bel who was patient and supportive with encouragement to ask any crazy questions I needed to. This continued and I always felt part of the group and cared for by Bel, like a big sister watching over me, only I was older. Loved seeing the must do sights, they were all stand outs and also the time spent with locals, a great mixture. We extended our trip separately afterwards & Bel supported us with this as well. Due to our training with Trailblazers we managed solo not to badly. I am eyeing up my next trip already.
