Russell and Julie, a huge thank you for planning our trip to NZ and Australia, we returned home amazed by what we had seen, your attention to detail was superb and your recommendations for accommodations and activities was just what we were looking for. Favourites were Huka lodge, Matakauri Lodge and Cape Kidnappers (great golf too!) in NZ and Wolgan Valley, Saffire Lodge, Silky Oaks Lodge and Lizard Island in Australia. Lizard Island was just what we needed at the end for relaxation before heading home. Again many thanks and we hope to return one day! We are recommending you to friends. Best Wishes Bill and Elizabeth

Hello, We can not thank you enough! We had the most wonderful time and we have been raving about you and your business to everyone! Weather let the team down with rubbish rain and low clouds for most of the west coast, but that aside everything went perfectly. We loved Karen and Franco at the Queenstown boutique hotel! Best place and wonderful people. Loved the alpine lodge in St Arnaud, heather at the Sussex house B and B, were standouts. We can't thank you enough for making our honeymoon seamless and exceptional. It was so us and we can't wait to go back again!!! Sincerely Suz and rob


Dear Russell and Julie

I cannot begin to tell you what an extraordinary adventure Bob & I had on our trip To New Zealand & Australia. We kept thinking each day that it could not get any better, but it did. Auckland was beautiful & we enjoyed exploring the city. Te Anau was just beautiful & our accommodations were lovely. The hosts were very helpful. We had a sunny day on our cruise on the Milford Sound; the sights were magnificent on the cruise & the drive to & fro were breathtaking. Queenstown was great, so alive. The B&B (Brown's) was great & we met many interesting people. Again the hosts were very friendly & helpful. The Walters Peak Cruise & Buffet dinner was a lot of fun. Fox Glacier was unbelievable. Again we had a beautiful sunny day which they said was not the norm. I highly recommend the helihike. The 3 hours flew by & we were in awe. Our Marlborough Sound kayak adventure was wonderful & quite an accomplishment. We paddled from 8:15 AM until 3:15 PM when we arrived at Lochmara Lodge. The Lodge is an adventure in itself & we kept discovering new things to see & admire at every turn. Christchurch was lovely & Jon & Shirley at Hadleigh B&B were just wonderful. Jon suggested Hays Restaurant & even drove us there in his Porsche SUV! I actually cried when we left NZ. We may just have to return & see the rest of your beautiful country.

Australia was wonderful, too. We loved Melbourne, our favorite city in Australia, & walked everywhere. Being there on the weekend was especially nice as we got to go to the markets. Our Great Ocean Road guided day trip was a definite highlight. Rosemary, our guide was just wonderful & went out of her way to find 2 golf courses for Bob! Her background is botany so we learned much about the flora & fauna. Teachers love to learn! The tramcar dinner was fun & the food quite good. The service was excellent. I am so grateful that we had the opportunity to overnight on the Great Barrier Reef. Thank you so much for that, Russell. I was obviously apprehensive & therefore did not choose it originally, but it turned out to be just wonderful, we will remember it always. We met some wonderful people as a result. The landing in Sydney was the most exciting for me. Seeing the Opera house & bridge from the air was a dream come true. We loved staying in The Rocks & loved the city. We took a trip out to Bondi Beach & did the walk to Coogee  so very beautiful. The backstage opera House tour was a highlight as well. The guide was very personable, informative & funny. We would highly recommend it. In all Russell, we loved every minute of our trip. We were not ready to come home! I guess you could say we loved it all!!!

We will recommend you to all who ask us how we arranged this wonderful trip & have 2 couples already who say this trip is in their future. It was our best trip ever. Thank you from both of us.

Sincerely, Kathy & Bob
