"Thank you for all you did to make the trip around New Zealand all that is was. For making the country come alive in its flora, fauna and topography. I could have gone on a bus and not learned half, nor experienced half of what I did"
- Madge McLaughlin, Indiana, USA
"Your knowledge of the South New Zealand fauna and flora is excellent (both introduced and indigenous). We particularly liked your relaxed and laid-back manner on the tour. We have seen beauties and wonders we can never forget and we have done all this in a relaxed and safe manner, thanks to you"
- John & Kathy Forrest, USA
"We had a magnificent walking vacation thanks to your thoughtful guidance, concern and sense of humour. New Zealand is a very special place and you
made sure that we experienced it fully"
- Doris & Jim Spence, USA
"Just a note of thanks to you for making the last few days among the most memorable of my life. I hope it was evident how much I thoroughly enjoyed myself. You guys are real professionals in your business and you bring a combination of knowledge and wit that's the best that I've ever encountered in travel. I especially appreciate your attention to details and the many special arrangements you made for me"
- David Levering, USA
"Yours is the most professional and all inclusive tour we have ever been on. Simply put, it was perfect. No detail was overlooked. We couldn't have been happier with our trip"
- Wendy Madow, USA
"We truly had a great time... you really showed us quite a cross section of New Zealand with many fabulous sights and treks. We certainly couldn't have done anything like that had we done this alone"
- Christine Saar & Peter Turino, USA
"Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. We have been all over the world and this was the best so far"
- John & Becky Shoemaker, USA
"We expected to see your country in winter understandably limited by rain, cloud and snow. You went beyond mere weather watch by modifying our visits to fit the weather of the moment. We expected a tour of 'up to six' people in a small bus. Instead, you allowed us to see New Zealand through your loving eyes. We expected the best motel in a tiny town. Not so - we got beautifully appointed surroundings with the best cuisine"
- Cece & Charley Schoettlin, USA
"We want you to know how very much we have enjoyed our 9 day "adventure" aka "The South Island Grazing Tour!" To be honest, we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into, and we want you to know that everyday has been a wonderful "event" full of surprises and unanticipated side trips. What really made the trip however, is you! Your unrestrained enthusiasm for your beautiful island and for helping us appreciate its beauty, nature and history, has made this a trip we will never forget! We can't thank you enough for the wonderful experience and all the little things you did for us day and day out"
