Rahul & Ansu Singh, A Custom 8 Day Southern Discovery, Travelled on 23rd November 2018
I had an amazing time in New Zealand. Christina did an excellent job making sure we were taken care of from the moment we arrived to when we left. Highly recommended.
Irving Lubliner & Joanne Kliejunas, Your North Island Adventure, Travelled on 4th November 2018
We were absolutely delighted with every aspect of our recent 7-day stay on the North Island, and we are especially grateful to Heather Mullett for the excellent service she provided when she worked with me to plan our trip. She was always punctual...
Margaret Gaerlan, Grand Pacific 19 Day New Zealand Showcase, Travelled on 8th November 2018
Really loved this tour! It was well prepared, well planned. Every time I had a question, or a comment, it was answered quickly. I can't wait to go back, and use the same services! A first rate operation.
