Looking for info about tours in New Zealand

We're traveling to New Zealand in March. We are planning to join a small group tour, something we've never done before, for part of the trip on the South Island.
Does anyone have any experience with MoaTrek or G Adventure, which seem to be the most popular small tour providers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have done a number of tours with G adventure including Iceland, Jordan, Cambodia and Eastern Europe. They have been my go to company for places I would like a tour. I did New Zealand years (20 or so ) ago with Magic bus not sure it even in still in business.

Most of my groups with G have at a wide age range. I am 44 and have always had people older and younger than me
In Iceland our youngest was 14 and the oldest around 67. Most people are well travelled in Jordan I was at 20 countries or so and was one of the least traveled people. I also found as a solo traveller they have many people who are on their own as well. I have made friends I visited in their home countries.
You do carry your bag from the bus to your room. Simple clean and central hotels
It's a good mix of guided activities and free time. Most night dinner is not included but your guide will arrange a time if people want to meet.

I will use them again in the future
