—We were delighted with the tour you arranged for us...
Dear Michelle, We were delighted with the tour you arranged for us. Everything worked like clockwork, all the pickups were there on time, and the choice of hotels was excellent.It as a very good itinerary. I think we would single out the Ponsonby Art Hotel, Fletcher guesthouse in Dunedin and the Springs guest house in Rotarua as the hotels we enjoyed most, as the welcome was so lovely and the guesthouses very comfortable. We loved the view from our hotel in Mount Cook! We were just a bit disappointed with our room in Napier, after all the fabulous rooms we had elsewhere this was a standard one and didn't have a sea view. It wasn't a very inviting hotel, really.. We found the driving times in the itinerary were optimistic- if it said 4 hours we needed to allow 6 if we were to have a loo and coffee break. It would be better to quote a longer time, the times seem to be based on keeping up a steady 80kph, and its just not possible with the other traffic on the road. The Queenstown wine tour, Appellation central, was particularly good, though we enjoyed both. Another real high point was a helicopter flight to franz Joseph glacier at 8am, when the weather was very clear and bright. Thanks for arranging everything. We had a great time. Diana and Roger
