South Island family tour
Lau Hock Tye, Essential South Island Family Tour, Travelled on 6 December 2017

—All your planning went smoothly as planned with excellent recommendations.

“Both my family & KPs' family arrived safely back home today with one of our travel dream fulfilled. All your planning went smoothly as planned with excellent recommendations for our accommodations which were clean and well located. We came for Lupins and we got more than expected of them in giant size and on full bloom with the picture attached taken at a field just before reaching Lake Tekapo. Every location we went to gave us a new experience and different excitement. We hope you guys continue to introduce NZ as you did for us and make others understand too why we need to preserve the beauty of our mother Earth the way NZ does it! Cheers and stay COOL...”

waiheke island
Richard & Maureen Jones, A Customised Grand Explorer, Travelled on 3 November 2017

—Christina was fantastic. Everything worked perfectly.

“Some comments: 1. Christina was fantastic 2. Everything worked perfectly, except the phone was not baby boomer friendly, we never really mastered how it worked. 3. Only activity that we did not enjoy was the Nomad Tour, Maureen because Spider Canyon was too high and precarious, Richard because it was too uncomfortable and hot. 4. The accommodations were uniformly fine, the only one we did not like was McHardy Lodge in Napier. On the other hand, we especially enjoyed The Appledore Lodge and the B&B in Picton. 5. A couple of days were too long in the car, notably Picton to Christchurch and Queenstown to Mt. Cook. 6. We found that the driving times were consistently optimistic. Without stops, we were always 15-20% longer than advertised in the guidebook. This caused us some difficulties until we learned to adjust. 7. Similarly, driving instructions had no guidance as to distances between instructions, so it was very difficult to use them. 8. Our GPS, we named "Bertha", was best left in the glove box; it sent us the wrong way at every given opportunity, to the point where we stopped using it.”

—Richard & Maureen Jones, CAN

South Island self drive touring
Carol & Sarah Collins, Discover New Zealand & the RouteburnTrack, Travelled on 2 November 2017

—Your service was great, efficient and just what we needed. We had a lovely time.

“Your service was great, efficient and just what we needed. We had a lovely time. Spectacular visit with my friend and the Routeburn was a surprise. We got the worst of the weather but traded a hiking day for a fabulous helicopter ride so that made up for the weather challenges. All good; we would love to visit NZ again! Carol and Sarah and of course I would recommend you!”
