Help me...

I am completely new to this. I am a Hospitality Management student and need to learn. Are there all-inclusive trips to New Zealand?

I need help on an assignment using travel forums. PART 1-Post a question, get responses, and enter into a dialogue w/ 2 people about my question...traveling to New Zealand. PART 2 - answer someone else's question. The result is to be a 2 page paper (single spaced), summarizing my thoughts and experience with the site. Reply to this

Hiya, I would imagine there are many all inclusive trips to new Zealand. I think most people on here tend to be independent travellers but i'm sure the travel companies such as Trafalgar, global, intrepid will have tours. I just googled 'new Zealand tours'and there are an awful lot. There are also cruise ships that go around NZ.

I haven't been to NZ myself but I believe the landscape is pretty amazing and very diverse across the islands, it might be worth hiring a car and just travelling around? I think NZ would have to be a pretty safe destination if you haven't travelled much and it is also full of tourist things to do...and non tourist things too 😊
good luck, tam Reply to this

Welcome to Travelblog! Hope your studies are going well. Package tours exist to anywhere on the planet that isn't under a travel warning at this point. National Geographic once offered a round the world tour on a private jet (for $10,000 plus per person!) To find tours, enter ' package tour' in the search engine of your choice. Be warned that some of the results will be agencies that sell tours with a commission attached; make sure the sites are for the actual operators.

New Zeland is a popular travel spot and has plenty of tours. Its also very possible to do independently, which many members seem to prefer. This forum thread has a discussion on the topic: How to experience the local style when we travel Reply to this

Hello Roosta! God Bless You! Thank you for your reply. Like I said, I don't know about all this and until I started this program of study, honestly it never occurred to me to ask.

Thank you, for your welcome and opportunity to dialogue, though my paper is due this night, and it doesn't involve 2 people, I have "spoken" with 2 people. I wonder if that will count?

Regardless, this has been an interesting endeavor. I am relatively new to online communication. I am not big on the phone or txting. A meaningful relationship happens face-to-face. Ergo, how do you have a meaningful encounter (period) if you never talk to anyone?

I sincerely appreciate your response and direction. At least, it gives me direction and parameters to work within and try. Then I can make a personal determination about if this is worthwhile for me or not.

I just wish the world had not become the kind of place where individuals (of whatever species) had to question the motives of every living thing they might encounter. In the not too distant past, the lines were clearly drawn. No matter if you walked on two legs or four, you knew who your friends were and who to keep your distance from.

I miss the world I use to know. I could encounter someone like you and we could make new discoveries together without concern for personal safety or the danger a "stranger" might impose. Reply to this

Hi Connie,

Welcome to TravelBlog.

A bit late for your assignment, but in case you're ever looking at coming here (NZ) in the future I can help with any questions.

TB is a bit different to most (probably all) other travel sites - we're more of a community than a bunch of strangers. When TBers meet up in person there is always an instant connection - as though meeting an old friend.
