G Adventures is giving away a trip for two to New Zealand in the “G’Day the G Way” competition

Kim and I took two trips with G Adventures when they were known as G.A.P. Adventures a few years back. While we usually like to travel independently the tours were fun and we met some very nice and like- minded travelers.

Kim and I visited New Zealand a few years back but only made it to the North Island. 
(We flew to NZ with a free stopover to Tahiti and didn’t have enough time to cover both islands.)
This prize would be amazing to win since I would love to see the amazing, natural sites on the South Island some day.

The Prize:

  • Two spots (for winner and guest) on any departure of G Adventures-New Zealand- Best of the South Island” (ONSI) departing by 12/31/13
  • Two return economy tickets on Air New Zealand from Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles or Honolulu to Auckland. Internal flights are also included.

Some Rules:
Must be 18 years of age or older to claim prize
To enter the contest you must “Like” G Adventures on Facebook
Winner & guest must travel together

Contest ends February 28, 2013
