High-End Experiential Travel in New Zealand

Doreen Ong

Hi Vince and Jean-Michel:

I just wanted to thank you for your help in arranging our recent trip to New Zealand!  What a gorgeous country you have, and what a fabulous trip we had!  We thoroughly enjoyed every moment, and came back wonderfully refreshed.  It was a most memorable anniversary celebration.

All the accommodation was absolutely gorgeous and suited us wonderfully, and we hated to leave each one.  But a more unexpected delight was the fact that every one of the drivers/chauffeurs you arranged were so friendly, genuinely warm, professional and welcoming--we felt very personally welcomed to your country.  Nothing was too much trouble for them, and they each were even so kind as to take us to see an extra point of interest on the way to the hotel.  Our charter across the lake with Geoff and Lorraine was excellent, and I didn't even get seasick. ;) Steve from Trips and Tramps was also so very kind and full of interesting information and personal assistance-- he took such very good care of us, we feel we have a new friend.  And Paul from Helitours gave us a stunning ride that was a true highlight of the trip.  It meant the world to us that you kept an eye on the weather for us and rearranged all the details to adjust the itinerary without our even asking!  And it turned out to be a lovely climax and recap to the whole trip to take the helitour back to Queenstown--we were able to see all the places we had toured in the days prior!

Please do convey our great appreciation to all concerned.  The natural beauty of New Zealand was truly breathtaking, and we were so blessed to have such gorgeous spring weather, complete with cherry blossoms in bloom (a wonderful surprise!).  However, I think it is the genuine warmth and relaxed hospitality of everyone we met that equally captured our hearts.

So my only problem now... when can we return!? ;)

Thank you again for all your help!
