We just returned from our trip.

We just returned from our trip to Australia and New Zealand and I wanted to send you a quick e-mail thanking you for your assistance. The trip planning went off with no issues and we have a fabulous time. Weather was near perfect and the scenery, accommodations, food, people, and everything else could hardly have been any better. Thank you for your part in assisting us with planning and booking for this trip. It made it very relaxing and enjoyable. Probably the best trip we have ever taken, and God willing I will be back someday. Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed the trip and thank you for your assistance.

All the places in New Zealand were superb.

Now we're back in the UK we reflect on all the places we visited. There is no doubt that all the places in New Zealand were superb. The only one that didn't quite meet our expectations was Dunedin due to a howling gale reported to have been 117 knots where we visited the peninsula. Fortunately that didn't detract from the wonderful experience. Thank you very much for organising the journey round the island and no doubt we will look to you to arrange our next trip.
N & H, United Kingdom - Mar 2016

Thank you so much for the thought and attention.

We have now returned home safely to Perth. Thank you so much for the thought and attention to detail that you put into our holiday in New Zealand. We now have a very good appreciation of the diversity of both North and South Islands, the wonderful landscapes, open spaces, mountains and the beautiful coastline. We really enjoyed the lovely accommodation for our 50th wedding anniversary in Cromwell, it was extra special, thank you. The travel guides, maps and informational brochures were outstanding. The car was just right and served us well. We have now firmly resolved to return and to spend more time in specific areas of interest to us. Please thank your staff for a truly memorable visit to your beautiful country.
C & P, Australia - Mar 2016

We enjoyed our time in New Zealand

Except for some days of wet weather in the North Island, we had a wonderful time!

We even got an upgrade to the 5 Stars Te Waonui Forest Retreat for our stay at Franz Joseph.

There are simply too much to explore in your beautiful country and 23 days to cover both islands seem a bit too short.

Overall, we enjoyed our time in New Zealand and Thank You Very Much for the perfect arrangement!

O. Singapore, Sept 2016

Everything went smoothly.

We had wonderful experience in NZ.

Everything went smooth as you planned.

S & M, Malaysia - Sept 2016

We have only positive impressions

Yes we are back home in Denmark after a very successful trip and we would like to say you thanks for the rapid change of our trip that was necessary after the earthquake.
The trip through New Zealand's magnificent scenery went as planned, it was a long but estimates drive with nice varying accommodations. The inlaid guided tours was also a very positive experience where we came very close to nature so, we have only positive impressions to take home from our vacation.

B & K, Denmark, Nov 2016

Two bungys and parachute

Thank you for everything, my 40 year old wife Two bungys, Parachute @ 16500 ft over glazier Franz Joseh. All hotels were good, the car hire as well.  In two or three vears we will be back

M & R, Indonesia, Nov 2016

The people are the best.

NZ is beautiful and the people are the best we have ever encountered anywhere.  We are totally impressed.  We wished we had spent more time there.  Thank you again for such a wonderful trip.

S & D, USA, Oct 2016

B & H, USA, Sept 2016

We had an amazing time.

Everything went to clock work and we had a amazing time. The only slight problem we had was it snowed in the north island and they shut the road to Napier the day we needed it! We managed to get there but it was a 7hr diversion! But thats part and parcel of traveling in the winter! We have got so many photos to hunt through! Thank you so much for all your help and patience, I will certainly recommend you to any friends/family that think of doing a similar trip. If you are on trip advisor or anything similar and you would like us to review you please let me know as I would be more than happy to do so.

B & A, UK, Aug 2016

Hard to say what our favorite place was...

It was an absolute fabulous trip and we think your country is amazing, beautiful, and the people are so very kind. It was hard to leave as the day we left Aoraki Mount Cook was showing us her fabulous snow covered peaks and the beautiful blue sky was just so pretty.
Hard to say what our favorite place was, and for such a little country you sure do have a lot of diversity! Your country is many places we have been all rolled into one exquisite place!

Thank you again for taking such good care of us and we will be sure to refer anyone who intends to travel to NZ your way.
It was a pleasure to work with you.

R & E, USA, Nov 2016

Dramatically spectacular scenic landscapes

We did indeed have a wonderful holiday and it was as I suspected, one of those intensive holidays where you feel you need to have a holiday when you get back! We were very lucky with the weather and for the most part we had perfect conditions for all our planned activities and tours. No complaints, everything went pretty much according to plan. 

So overall, a really happy and memorable holiday. We are glad to be back in our 30 degree temperatures and swimming in our pool but we will fondly remember the dramatically spectacular scenic landscapes of NZ, the many friendly locals that we met, our wildlife encounters, the beautiful architecture of Napier, Dunedin and Oamaru and the whiff of LOTR magic that permeated.

Thanks again for all your assistance. I will be recommending your services to anyone I know who is planning a visit.

4 days on a bike

Many thanks for this awesome trip. Everything worked fine, 4 days on a bike with blue sky and sun, only one day with heavy rain (and this just on a day we spent on the road). And of course a lot of amazing NZ.

G & A, Austria, Nov 2016

We fell in love with NZ!

Everything was amazing ! We fell in love with NZ !
We truly enjoyed our vacation. Thank you soooo much for organizing everything for us.

A & A, Hong Kong, Dec 2016

Moments of terror

We had a great time on our trip. Every hotel/motel had our reservation so nice job. Also the car rental. We ended up driving 3000km on our visit with Teri having moments of terror with me driving on the left side of the road. We particularly liked having kitchen facilities and would do more of that in the future. The toughest part of the trip was when Hawaiian airlines cancelled our return flight and put us on an Air New Zealand flight that night. Fortunetly we were able to reclaim our room at the Heartline as Auckland was at full occupancy.   So thanks again for your hard work. Much appreciated.

B & T, USA, Dec 2016

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much for organizing and to be so flexible in adjusting the program due the Kaikoura earthquake. Hope the region get quickly back on his feet. 

W & H, Indonesia, Dec 2016

We had an absolute blast!

Thank you for helping us put our honeymoon vacation together. We had an absolute blast and cannot wait to visit NZ again!  We both can honestly say that our trip to NZ over the past 12 days has been the best trip of our lives!

P.S. The hotel manager at Distinction Fox Glacier saved us when our car got stuck. I don't know if you do much business with him, but we would gladly leave him any sort of glowing review that would help him out.

A & J, USA, Dec 2016

A Wonderful Trip

Yes we are safely home. Arrived yesterday morning, after a wonderful trip. All the arrangements for our tour of South Island which you helped us organise went extremely well, and we are very grateful for your organisation of this tour. The car was brilliant, almost new. The motels were all good, the one at Hokitika was particularly good as we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom bungalow next door with beautiful facilities. It was great to revisit all the places we wanted to see again, and visit a few we had not previously visited.
Later in our holiday we visited Kaikoura, and it is so sad to see the changes there.
Once again thank you very much for your wonderful rapport and swift replies. We really appreciated all your efforts.

P & D, UK, Dec 2016

Milford Sound was unbelievable!

We had a lovely time and everything worked very smoothly. The accommodation was fine and we loved the South Island. Milford Sound was unbelievable.
Thanks again for all your help.
Have a great year.

S, D & L, Australia, Dec 2016

Having it all booked in advance made it easy.

Our trip to New Zealand was great, the accommodation was great and having it all booked in advance made it easy. We are delighted we had time to travel around both islands just to see the differences, from the thermals and the hot springs in the North to the glaziers and mountains in the South Island. The car hire was also very good. We liked Auckland and it's an nice city to explore. We visited Piha and Devonport while there. Queenstown is beautiful and Wanaka also amazing scenery.
The only thing I could complain about was the weather in the south where some days you experienced four seasons in a day.
I would like to thank you for all the assistance you gave me in planning and preparing for our trip and I will be recommending your services to our friends.

A & B, Australia, Dec 2016

Our best vacation ever.

Thanks for your email. We just loved the trip, it has been our best vacation ever. Had an amazing time in your country. Everything went really well

You did an amazing job.

A & D, Spain, Dec 2016

The only problem is the accent !!! ja ja ja

We are back from our trip to your wonderful country.
We have enjoyed very much the experience.
Your people is lovely, very kind and helpful. The only problem is the accent !!!! jajaja
Everything, everywhere is very tidy, clean; it´s a pleasure to go around.
Our child has to go on a very strict diet= no gluten, no diary, no preservatives… And we were always able to find something for him. (and this is not so easy to get in other countries…)
No need to mention the landscapes…Everywhere you find a photograph (and my hobby is photography…)
We made three activities not included in your arrangements= the glowworm cave in Te Anau, Wai o Tapu and a Helicopter ride to Milford Sound. These, and all the others included in the vouchers were wonderful (Doubtful Sound, Jet Sky, Trans alpine Train, etc)
The Hotels were very good. The only ones we didn´t find so conformable were the one in Te Anau and the one in Mount Maunganui. But I understand the difficulties to find locations because of the season!! We saw letters with “No Vacancy” everywhere… And a special mention must be made to the little hotel of Arrowtown. We found it a heaven. And Steve (the manager) is a charming person. (if you have an email of his, I would like to write to him to let him know how we appreciate his hospitality). And the town is lovely. So your decision to spend New Year´s Eve there was very successful. (and Millbrooks, for the dinner, too).
We feel very grateful for your help and support. We wouldn´t have been able to do this without you. Thanks a lot.
Whenever I have the chance, I´ll do the same Alberto have done with me= I´ll tell about you to any friend who may be thinking of going to your country (and I have become a promoter of NZ!! jaja).

Driving between destinations was a pleasure

Back home in snowy and wet Scotland. No change there then!

All the arrangements for accommodation and travel worked without a hitch. The only confusion we had was finding the Thrifty reception at Picton, as we initially went to the wrong ferry terminal!

We were kindly redirected by a receptionist to the correct terminal and all fell into place.

There were numerous highlights, but for June and I, the Helicopter flight and landing on the glacier was a unique and memorable event.

Driving between destinations was also a pleasure as the traffic density in general is far less than in the UK, the uniqueness of the roads and the scenery made it enjoyable to drive. June (who is far better disciplined than I), created a log of the places visited and experiences encountered.

This, along with the photographs taken will provide material to deliver a presentation of our tour to fellow Rotary members here at Helensburgh.

From June and I, a big THANK YOU for creating a very interesting and memorable itinerary that gave insight to some of the outstanding landscape and history of New Zealand.

A lovely adventurous holiday

Am safely back in London after a lovely adventurous holiday in NZ and Singapore. Ginny and I really enjoyed our trip round the South Island though the weather was not at all helpful. At times we were freezing and I had to buy a couple of jackets.

I have done a quick appraisal of the places we stayed in. The stand out accommodation was the B & B in Christchurch. Such a nice place with a great atmosphere. Doubtful Sound was fabulous. We were so lucky to see Mt Cook, although it was miserable weather at least the clouds lifted enough to see the beautiful mountain.

All in all a lovely holiday and I met my cousins in Auckland as they were setting out! Thank you for all your help.

S & G, UK, Feb 2017

Once in a while sandfly bite.:)

Happy New Year and thank you for the email.
Everything went smoothly with the car and accommodation booking and we enjoyed the New Zealand scenery very much.
Overall it's a positive experience except for the once in awhile sandfly bite. :)

E & PX, Singapore, Jan 2017

The trip was fantastic.

Kia ora Indeed, back in ”chilly” Belgium. The trip was fantastic, the weather in South Island was not very summer-like, but the great scenery made up for that. The car hire went smoothly, no remarks there. The motels were OK, some were really good, others were so-so. Thx again for organizing this so well.

G & C, Belgium, Jan 2017

Your country is truly beautiful.

Thank you for organising our holiday to New Zealand. Your country is truly beautiful.

Thanks for making the late changes as well, it was appreciated. Everything went smoothly.

Our favourite accommodation was in Picton, it was roomy and the view was great!

J & A, Australia - Mar 2017

Three weeks was not enough.

I thoroughly enjoyed the trip.  Three weeks was not enough.  Thanks.

B McL, USA - Feb 2017

Everything was perfect.

Everything was perfect. No worries at all. There's nothing that I can fault with it all. Maybe when a traveller has arrived on the first day you could txt or msg a link to a website so that travellers can see if there are any road changes due to weather etc as they go along. But that's just a thought, Thanks so much for everything

AS, Australia - Feb 2017

A Fabulous Trip

We are in HK on the way home after a fabulous trip to your so very, very beautiful country. Thanks for all you did to make it so successful.
M & S, Israel - Feb 2017

The Trip Was Beautiful

The trip was BEAUTIFUL.  I love New Zealand. Surely I will return. Most everything turned out well. Of course, there was the misunderstanding of the Kayak in Mt Cook, but hard to say if that issue was the fault of the owner or me. I feel he was not clear. I think that a map that somehow differentiated each day of the trip would have been good. Not sure how you would do that, but that might have been helpful. I found most all people very helpful and very friendly. The woman at the first hotel, and the man who was that the Hokitika were very, very nice, and very helpful. In Hokitika I bought a Jade from a shop called Traditional Jade (something like that) recommended by the owner of the hotel where I stayed. The people there were so very nice!
I stopped at OKARITO KAYAKS, rented a kayak and had a lovely couple of hours. Rented a bike at HOKITIKA SPORTSWORLD, he was very nice and helpful. Had a great couple
of meals at the Woodstock Hotel close to Hokitika, and met the owners Colin and Leanne, and their staff, played a game of card with them after they closed one day.
Super nice, and they have music there on the weekends with local musicians.

I would recommend your services to others., so thank you very much for your assistance.
IS, USA - Feb 2017

We'll Just Have to Come Back!

Thank you for organizing everything so well for the New Zealand leg of the trip.
It ended up being a lot more complicated than I'd originally thought with us overlapping with K and then E and C being able
to meet up with us for several segments - but that meaning we had to be near airports on specific days.
It all worked out perfectly and all of the bookings and travel went very smoothly.
I really appreciated the personal touch from someone who knows the country rather than trying to do everything myself online.

We'd been told by some Kiwi friends about New Zealand motels but to be honest, having had a somewhat dodgy motel experience in the US a few years back, we were somewhat sceptical.
But now we are converts. The accommodation was clean, spacious, even the "bronze", and great value for money. It was particularly useful on such a long trip often to have washing and drying facilities for clothes.
We also enjoyed the flexibility of being able to do some of our own cooking rather than eating out every meal.

Your brief itineraries with highlights of sights en route were very useful especially when combined with the 6 or 7 AA regional guides that are given away at the i-Sites and at many attractions.
And the drive times were pretty accurate as well - it's good to know when you'll only be able to average 60 Kph - Coromandel!

The only change we made to an itinerary was the day we were due to drive from Queenstown to Milford Sound and then back to Manapouri.
I decided a week before that it would be too much driving for 1 day so we simply drove 2 hours to Manapouri and went on the trip across Lake Manapouri to Doubtful Sound.
That way we had 2 hours driving and an 8 hour excursion rather than the other way round.

It was a nice surprise to meet you at Abel Tasman. That was a great side trip, although the Day 2 weather was very wet the lodges are very comfortable and with excellent food - and you get more of a sense of achievement from the walk if it hasn't been all plain sailing!

Overall the whole holiday exceeded our expectations - which were pretty high anyway, Em had been talking up NZ - and it was undoubtedly our best trip ever. Our only regret is that in so many places we only had a day where we could easily have spent a week.
We'll just have to come back!

Thanks again for all your help with the itinerary.

D & G, UK - Jan 2017

 

We Also Enjoyed Our Farm Stay

We've had a great holiday - the only weather issue was the curtailed fishing, and the sea kayaking was in a choppy sea so we didn't go as far as hoped and saw only coastline.

The weather in the south was great we had excellent weather for Milford and clear blue skies, calm seas at Doubtful. Couldn't have been better. Stewart Island was also seen in good weather, bit of cloud cover on the Paterson inlet trip but really good trip.

Thanks for sorting out the car - the Thrifty staff don't like them at all! Suggest you instruct no SsangYong Tivolis for future clients! They really are dreadful. The Corolla however is a good car. Enjoyed driving it.

We also enjoyed our Farm Stay. Lovely couple, very friendly and chatty.

All in all we've had an amazing holiday - thanks for all you did.

 N & P, UK - Jan 2017

Milford Overnight Wonderful

Thanks for arranging a wonderful holiday. Everything was perfect. Amazing B&B’s and hotels. Only wish weather had been a bit better and had stayed longer in each place! Favorite places were Akaroa, Whitianga and Queenstown. St.Moritz Hotel= wonderful luxury. Milford Overnight wonderful. Great food,  silence and opportunity to see Milford with and without rain. Whitianga Motel huge! and waves at the door. Husband did a fabulous photography tour in Queenstown. Zip line in Rotorua great fun. Thanks again. PS Drive into Auckland and to airport not a problem

M & S, UK - Feb 2017

Watch for Turns When Wipers Going

Yes, we’re back home now and back to the same old winter we left. The 40 degree temperature shift was a bit of a shock!

We had a great time in New Zealand and would not have changed a thing, except perhaps a do-over for some of the poor weather days when we missed some great scenery due to rain and mist. Loved the North Island the best. The mountains and glaciers on the South Island were nice too but similar to what we have within an hour or two of home.

Driving on the left did not prove to be too much of a challenge for L although those windshield wipers got more workout than signal light. He claimed he should have put a sign in the back window that said “ watch for turns when wipers going” but I bet that’s a common problem. Without the GPS we would still be circling the Auckland airport.

With the exception of the mixup in Whitianga, the hotels were great. The amenities were just what we needed and the locations enabled us to do most of our town exploring on foot. We managed quite a few hikes as well and put on a walking total close to 150km. The tracks were all so very well maintained and well signed. We were amazed to see that your national parks do not have an admission fee.

Highlights were Cape Reinga, the fern trees and the dense foliage, the Kea’s at the lookout in Arthur’s Pass (cute but oh my, so quick to be destructive), the Moeraki boulders, the large dunes and some of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen.

Seeing the destruction that remains from the earthquake in Christchurch was most sobering. The rebuilding is testimony to the resiliency of your country and its people.

I think one of the strangest things that happened was that we met people we knew from our small home town at the Antarctic Centre. Just goes to show that it can be a small world.

L and I both appreciate the time and effort you and your company put in to make sure our holiday went without a hitch. Thank you so much. I would recommend your services to anyone.

Thanks for a vacation to remember,

We thank you so much for all of your planning

We had a wonderful trip.  We thank you so much for all of your planning.  The distances to travel were all very reasonable and enjoyable.  We had wonderful weather with our only rain a slight drizzle the 1st afternoon in Christchurch and also a bit of drizzle in Rotorua.  Nothing either place that slowed us down or diminished our planned hikes or activities.  We are giving you all of the credit for arranging the beautiful weather in Milford Sound, Franz Josef, and Mt Cook Village.  We know the weather in those locations can be very rainy and we had such beautiful days.  Very fortunate!  All of the accommodations and folks that we dealt with were so nice.  Very good choices for accommodations.  The rental car was excellent and the GPS was invaluable.  

New Zealand is such a beautiful country with such a diverse landscape.   The hike in Abel Tazman was a highlight for me.  Very beautiful.  Also the time at Lake Manapouri and Te Anau both were so nice.  The Queenstown time was wonderful with a beautiful drive up to Paradise along the lake as well as a wonderful meal and time atop the gondola.  And of course Keiteriteri with its hikes and boat shuttle were so special.  Your recommended stops at Pancake rocks and the Moreaki boulders were very interesting.  The time in Rotorua was a special surprise with the village tour and meal a real highlight for us.  

Thank you again for a wonderful trip and experience in your beautiful country.  We hope to come back so if you ever want to e-mail us NZ travel information feel free to do so

E, C, P & P, USA - Feb 2017

We have memories to treasure

Thank you so much for all the help you have given us and we have memories to treasure ( and lots of photos). We will tell all our friends about your company and how pleased we were with what you organised. 

N, V, B & R, UK - Feb 2017

We had such a fun time in New Zealand!

We had such a fun time in New Zealand! The accomodations were wonderful. Our hosts gave great service at each place. There were places I could have lived happily for awhile, specifically Silver Peaks in Mosgiel, Garden Court Suites and Apartments in Queenstown, Torlesse Motels in Kaiteriteri and CityLife Auckland. I also enjoyed Pete's Farm Stay. I purchased a sweater there made of their alpaca wool that I have worn most days since then.

Your suggestions of things to do in the areas we traveled were helpful. I enjoyed the beautiful and tasty buffet at Skyline Queenstown. What a view! We saw several rainbows as we ate dinner. It's too bad photos cannot capture what the eye can see. We will hold it in our memories.

Even though you indicated travel time, I was surprised at the amount of time we were in the car!  There is nothing to be done about that.  We did the things we wanted to do, which necessitated the hours it took to get to different places.  Another week in your country would have relaxed the pace a little, of course.  By the time we got to Queenstown, I was grateful to stay two nights there.  While the others took a side trip to Glenorchy. I walked around town stopping at the library and the dock area, did some window shopping and wandered in the park.  It was a fun time of getting the feel of the place and people watching.  

While we saw a lot, we didn't see it all.  It would be good to return sometime.  We will look for you when 'sometime' arrives!  Thanks again to you and Janice.

P & K, USA - Feb 2017

We had an amazing time.

We just wanted to thank you for the great trip that you put together for us without much notice. We had an amazing time enjoying all that New Zealand had to offer which is such a lot. A great trip for the mature travellers. We really did have such a good time and we were thankful that we left it all in your hands. We hope to do the North Island in the future and we will think of you to look after our travel plans. We will also be happy to recommend you to any friends or family that wish to follow in our footsteps. Anyway, thank you once again. You made the trip so much more manageable and without any worries.

 A & M, Australia - July 2017

Photos don't do the landscape justice

We just returned from our trip the other day, just wanted to say thank you for all your help.
Trip was great and had no dramas what so ever. Photos don’t do the landscape justice.
Ill be quick to recommend you to friends planning a trip.

M & L, Australia - June 2017

Enjoyed being in NZ with the British Lions Tour

We had a great time. Saw a lot of the North Island. Had time to work through our “jet lag” as needed with a flexible daily schedule. Enjoyed being in NZ when the British Lions Rugby tour was taking place. You told me it was taking place, and I was expecting to see and hear lots of Rugby talk from the locals. I wasn’t expecting to see and interact with so many of the “Lions” fans as they toured the country. Someone told me there were 28,000 British fans on the “official” tour. It was a bonus. The America’s Cup races were an added interest also (except for the brutal beating the Kiwis put on the US boat).

The hotels worked out really well and the proprietors were friendly and helpful. All of our arrivals were expected and handled quickly and efficiently.

If I had anything to add in the way of improving the experience, it might be a heads-up about the wi-fi costs at “Spencer on Byron” ($20 per day), and the parking costs at "Spencer on Byron” ($20 per day) and "James Cook Hotel" in Wellington ($29). I’ve stayed in large city hotels before and know that those added expenses exist, and not controlled by you. Some info in advance would have been appreciated for our planning. Your information on the added fee for airport pick-up of the rental car was helpful and expected.

We may one day want to come back and visit the South Island.

G & J, USA - June 2017

All travel arrangements went like clockwork

Just to say a big thank you for organising our holiday. We had the time of our lives and loved NZ. It is so beautiful and we saw lots of it and more. All travel arrangements went like clockwork and we had no problems. All motels and hire car and island ferry expected us. It went like a well oiled machine. The motels were very good nice and clean except one in Christchurch which had a dirty kitchen and utensils so we did not cook in that one. The motel at the end at Auckland was shabby and fittings all falling off the walls and evening meal there was shocking and well over priced. This was the only two motels which were substandard. I am giving you this feedback so you will know for other people who are going to NZ. The azure ones and fountain ones and Pheniox were very good. The oceans resort was the best which was the up graded one.
If I go back which I would so love to do I won't hesitate using your firm again. Excellent itinerary and well organised. Thank you again.

The planning certainly paid off!!

I’ve been meaning to touch base with you to let you know everything went wonderfully.  It was truly a fantastic experience and I appreciate all the effort you and your team put in.  The planning certainly paid off!  Out of the entire four weeks, we only had one day that we took the wrong directions, no fault of the travel company, completely our lack of insight, so I’d say that was pretty good!   In all our traveling, we felt safe, confident of our itinerary, and completely taken care of by the people in which we came into contact.

Everywhere you booked for us was good.

"We returned home at the weekend after a very enjoyable 2 weeks touring the North Island. Thank you again for your assistance in arranging some of our accommodation, everywhere you booked for us was good. Our two holidays in New Zealand have been great, we will look forward to the third!"
