Jean-Michel, Karen & Judy: We are finally settled back into our normal routines following our amazing trip to Australia & New Zealand. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & a festive New Years Eve. All the best to you in 2012!
I can’t thank you enough for arranging our New Zealand trip. The accommodations were excellent and your country is stunningly beautiful. You reminded us of why we choose to use as Luxury Travel Service like yours.
All our accommodations were top notch especially the Point Villas(voted # 1 by all four of us) and the Pennisula Waterfront Retreat in Whangamata. Peg was a wonderful woman who went over and beyond---she actually made us a Pavlova(the best we have ever had) and returned a few articles that Conrad had left behind, to the hotel in Auckland. Service like that is unheard of these days. Craig & Patricia were very kind, welcoming & informative, Craig was discussing music with us when he discovered he & my brother were fans of ACDC. He told them the drummer had a restaurant near bye. Zenith & Laurie said the place was great and they meet Phil Rudd. They had their picture taken with him & phoned home to tell their friends. I think now they appreciated & understand why I insisted on booking with you. It’s these little things that make your whole trip!!
Our favorite activities were the “Arcturus” sail boat trip in Auckland with Captain Bruce & Robyn and the Milford Sound Heli Trip. Also we loved our day with Grant Taylor in Queenstown. He was so easy to talk to & was very informative about wine making. We could tell it was a passion of his. We sensed that he was extremely well known and an important person—everywhere we went people came out to talk to him & wondered why he was touring us around. He even came to a pub with us ,in Queenstown, after his long day with us—again you would never get this with a regular tour.
We also found it very interesting that every place we were at spoke highly about you and your company. They told us how lucky we were to be using you. Now that speaks for itself!!
Lastly, Queenstown is a real gem of a place. It reminds us of a small mountain town about 5 hours from where we live—BANFF. You really must visit here if you ever come to Canada. Well I could go on and on about our trip but you already know what a great country you live in!! THANKS again for the GREAT TRIP. We will surely recommend you to all our friends.
Sincerely Elaine & Conrad St Jean
