12 Stars for Heron4, Mr. Wollenweber and the whole team.
We travelled with the Heron4 for more than 6 weeks in January and February 2017 we had the very best vacation ever.
We booked the camper in 2016 (before it was built) after a long period of mails, calls and questions. Thanks for your patience, the good advices on the road and the wonderful time we had in this wellorganisied camper.
And thats why I am back: it is Impossible to find such a Camper in Europe. Today I know which luck we had. Thanks for all.

HI Theresa,

Thanks for the 12 stars. We are so pleased you enjoyed your trip, and especially in our Heron 4 Motorhome. This was a nearly fitted out motorhome built by our other company - Milestone Campers, so we are excited about your positive feedback.

We think you should come back to New Zealand again! - There is still so much to see and do.

All the best

Friendly and helpful service, all-inclusive price (including insurance), smooth pickup and dropoff. The Heron 4 is well-designed and the layout was good - the back storage area was very handy. Only issues were the fridge (not working great unless the motorhome was plugged in but I think this is probably true for many motorhomes) and the BBQ was useless.

Heron Campers responds:

Hi Shian,

Cheers for your feedback. The 'One Price Package' works very well - taking the stress out of having to think about the extras that you may need to hire for your journey - including champing chairs, bedding, kitchen utensils etc - a home away from home. Sorry, you had a bad experience with using the BBQ - sometimes if you light them up in the windy NZ weather, the flame doesn't burn as well.

Again, we loved meeting you and look forward to seeing you again back here,
Kind regards

We rented the Heron 2 berth for 20 days for our honeymoon and we really couldn't have imagined better. The camper was spacious, cozy, new with everything you could need and an absolute delight to drive on the road. The staff was caring and always ready to help.
Wouldn't dream of renting anywhere else when we return. Thank you for helping in making our honeymoon such a special holiday.

Hi Thomas,

We were really pleased to provide you with the perfect vehicle for your honeymoon. For first time motorhome travellers - the Heron 2 berth couldn't have been a better choice. Due to the size of the vehicle, it is very easy to handle on the road and all weather conditions (unlike some of the larger motorhomes) and of course the compact living arrangement adds to an experience.

We wish you all the best with your new adventures together,

A huge thank you to Lena from Heron Campers who helped us find the perfect camper for our anniversary weekend away in Lake Tekapo. Lena also went the extra mile and helped us with itinerary planning. The camper was clean and well maintained. We will definitely travel with Heron Campers in the future and recommend them to family and friends.

We rented the Heron 2 berth for 21 days. Staff were friendly, camper home was well maintained and clean. Weather was cold but next time we come in summer. Would use Heron again.

Dear Allienia,

Fantastic to meet you, and pleased that the Heron 2 berth was a suitable home for you for 21 days. The weather is a bit colder in June - generally snow capped mountain tops! - But the heating system in the Heron 2 berth warms you up nicely once you are back in the camper.

All the best Allienia,

A solid and trustworthy company with great, new motorhomes.

Good service throughout our holiday, and since they have an "all inclusive" package for their motorhomes, we also had the pleasure of having a portable BBQ with us along the way. Hence both good dining as well as accommodation.

Would definitely rent from them again if we were to return to NZ!

Overall we were very pleased with Heron Campers.
The booking process was straightforward and we received helpful advice. The van was just the right size for two adults. It was in very good condition and well equipped.
We had chosen this relatively compact campervan because we wanted something easy to drive on the steep and twisty NZ roads. This was our only disappointment . The basic vehicle was an LDV van with sluggish automatic transmission and poor handling on corners and was not a pleasure to drive.
The staff at both the Aukland and Christchurch depots were friendly and efficient.
The Christchurch depot was not all that easy to find.
We did, however have a fantastic trip.

Our experience with Heron Campers has been a very plesant one.
The staff at Heron were helpfull at all times, this made our journey hassle free. We had some minor issues with
the house battery in our motorhome, but the friendly staff resolved this and we were not too inconvenienced.
The heron motorhome, was great, It was comfortable and it easilly accomodated a family of four. The motor in the Ldv unit was powerfull enough to pull us up some steep hills yet it was frugal on fuel. one big difference between Heron and other hire companies was a very attractive hire price. Heron was definitely better value for money compared to some others.
I would reccomend Heron to others considering a motorhome journey across Beautifull New Zealand.

Hi Goran,

Lovely to hear from you, and we were so pleased that you enjoyed your Heron 4 over January for a 3 week hire. The motorhome is spacious and accommodates 4 people nicely. With the spacious permanent King size beds, this is certainly a key feature!

The Heron 4 is a great way to travel our beautiful country, and thanks for recommending us to others.

We had a fantastic experience with Heron. Starting with (a) the smooth airport pickup, to (b) a friendly welcome, walk through, and explanation of the campervan by superbly helpful manager Carolina (Thank you!), to (c) the thoughtfully designed, well-equipments, 2016-model campervan itself - everything went great. We have traveled in a campervan in NZ before, so had a point of reference. Our Heron campervan and interactions with the manager, Carolina, surpassed our expectations. Only a very minor improvement Heron could make is to provide a longer hose for filling fresh water. We'll rent with Heron again.

Hello Shardul,

Wonderful review - 10/10. Thank you! The Heron 4 Berth was a perfect choice for your Christmas motorhome holiday, with 2 weeks being a good amount of time to explore the South Island. We are pleased you enjoyed the use of the free weber bbq and of course found the large storage area at the back of the vehicle a bonus. We hope to have you back soon, where you could hire from our Auckland branch and explore the North Island.

All the best,
