Happy New Year. I hope your trip went well and look forward to hearing all about it. Thailand was brilliant, managed perfect weather with virtually no rain which helped. All of the accommodation and transfers worked brilliantly and I have been singing your praises to anyone who asks about travelling in Thailand. The transfer company Buffalo tours were particularly good, luxurious vehicles, always on time and good for a map and some local information, all really helped for a hassle free holiday. "

- Catherine

Had a great time, met so many lovely people. could not believe how many people booked through your office as we all had our lanyards on. We drove past your office on a tour of Adelaide but not enough time to call in in to meet you. Maybe one day. Thank you again the trip was so well organised. "

- Joe & Lyn

Hi Kenn, Thanks for the opportunity to experience this great value holiday. The trip was very good. Really enjoyed the Ghan and excursions. Even though we had travelled this area by bus over 10 years ago we did different excursions. Helicopter ride over Katherine Gorge, BBQ under the stars in Alice Springs and lunch in a cave in Coober Pedy and a visit to The Breakaways were the highlights. "

- Elizabeth

Thank you for a great, a truly memorable holiday. Also thanks to Hayley Cornish in Adelaide office who helped organise on trip. It was great that we were able to adapt/add on to the trip to meet on needs rather than some companies that offered a one size fits all/take it or leave it!!"

This was a great tour of K. Island. There was plenty of daily tours included in the package which were interesting & enjoyable. Our tour group were friendly and we all had a great time together. Everywhere we visited was very interesting and the guides were very informative"

- Marylyn

We arrived home safely last night, after 12 days in New Zealand. I don't know how you did it but the weather was perfect every single day, and the tour went smoothly. We had a great tour guide, who joined us in Auckland at the start of our trip. He was knowledgeable and very well-informed, well-organised, caring and thoughtful, great company, and cleverly had his eye on all of us! Our main bus driver, whom we met at Christchurch, gave thorough geology lessons when we toured the Alpine Region, and he was a very safe and careful driver. And great company, too. Accommodation and meals were great and it was nice not to have to think about what we were doing next! Just follow instructions from our tour guide, relax and enjoy the day!

There are almost no words to describe the astonishing and majestic scenery. Mile after mile of just breath-taking views of the country. We learned so much about NZ and I have great respect for their caring environmentalist attitude. All in all, a wonderful holiday, so thank you Lorraine, for helping this dream come true. "
