Being a first time visit to NZ and so far away we thought best to be in the hands of someone that knows the land.Our travel designer was able to put find us excellent flights at a better cost than we could have on our own.A detailed itinerary was presented based on our physical activity level, cultural tastes, accommodation and general interests.Our designer was easy to work altering some of her suggestions to activities and points of interest that we favored . We traveled the north and South Island,for almost 4 weeks and never encountered any problems with reservations for accommodations or tours, they were seamless. Our car rentals were prearranged as well as Ferry tickets, etc. making it stress free and allowed us time to focus on enjoying our sightseeing. It’s a beautiful country with people that couldn’t be nicer, it was a trip of a lifetime.

This was a trip of a lifetime.  We worked well together, came up with an awesome itinerary for 6 weeks to New Zealand and Australia.  You name it we were going to do it.  This truly was an itinerary with planes, trains & automobiles.  Let's not forget to include boats, helicopter, camel and kayak.  We had such a variety of things planned including wine tasting in both NZ and Australia.  I can't say enough good things about our travel company!!!  In the planning stages they even spoke to us about where and when to go as far as seasons and which way to go whether it be Australia first or NZ. As it turned out, the recommendation to go to New Zealand first was perfect. We were saved the experience of Australia for only a few weeks and maybe being stuck there!  No stone was left unturned, even when the fires occurred in Australia.  Our impact was going to be minimal.We left the US on March 9th for NZ arriving on the 11th.  No problems with Covid-19, we continued on with our itinerary.  Sailing in the harbor in Auckland, wine tasting on a beautiful little island outside of Auckland.  On to Queenstown which is delightful and Milford Sound for an overnight on a ship.  Absolutely beautiful.  Glad we did this vs a day trip or boat ride.  We flew back to Queenstown, which I'd recommend because you have a great overview of the mountains.  Breathtaking!!  Picked up a rental car and drove to Franz Josef to climb the glacier.  We're an older couple, but this was an incredible, first-time experience! My husband still marvels! We took a train to Christchurch which is still suffering the after effects of the 2011 earthquake.  Again a train up the Pacific Coast which is beautiful to Nelson.  Kayaking, hiking and a catamaran in the Tasman Sea.  What scenery!!  Up to Rotorua for more fun.  Well this is where the wheels starting coming off of our fun.  Things got cancelled because of Covid-19 and the ever changing environment of new shut downs and what the government was asking of people and vacationers.  Starting on the 15th of March our travel agent was continually in contact with us about Covid-19 and how our itinerary was going to be impacted.  She made alternative suggestions, we made the decision to extend in NZ.  As our trip went along, things kept changing....  NZ decided to shut down on March 25 midnight.  Our new flight home was March 29, then March 27.  She worked with us so closely and was so helpful she actually got us a flight home on March 25.  While we were having fun and enjoying ourselves, this company was working for us behind the scenes.  You can't ask for more than that!!  By the way, we came home and quarantined.  To date, we're healthy.

Planning the trip was great! The travel planner worked with me to come up with an itinerary, adjusting based on my availability and what I wanted to see and do. The itinerary included some things I would not have done on my own, but I'm glad I did!The trip itself was fantastic. Everything was pre-arranged, including transportation. Our planner even picked us up at our hotel for a tour of Christchurch.

A group of 10 people (5 couples) have been planing a trip to New Zealand and Australia for the last 5 years.  Our travel designer with this travel agency finally helped us make it happen this past February 2020.  She took into consideration our needs, interest, activities we like, vegetarian meal needs and planned a 16 day trip for us.  The final Itinerary was very well organized and detailed, it included description and website connection to  air line details, hotel to airport transfers, hotels at each locations, all the tours and activities we were schedule to do.  It also included all additional activities we planned  ourselves ( we had at the last minute added 2 night stay in Fiji, and we had booked our own international flight.)  Their agency App, helped my group so much on a daily base to know what we were doing and where we were going.  Our travel designer being a local Australian, made it easy for us to call her anytime we had questions or concerns, which she took care of immediately.  My group all agreed that we will use the designers's services again for future tours to other countries.Thank You travel designer for making such a Memorable trip to New Zealand and AustraliaK.

The travel agency helped us to plan a trip of a lifetime to Japan with our two teenaged sons. Our agent was extremely responsive throughout the whole planning process and definitely listened to our concerns, as well as the things we really wanted to do.  We love food and she planned some excellent food tours that allowed us to get an insider's taste of Japan, rather than going at it on our own. Was everything perfect? Of course not, but not much I would change!! Highly recommended.

We had the most wonderful 15 days in French Polynesia that I could’ve hoped for! Rick was so helpful in getting us prepared for knowing what to expect across our many islands and excursions.  The trip was set up to let us experience a wide variety of things from cultural, historical, water and land excursions.  The recommendations for the types of accommodations in the locations were spot on!there was a small service worker strike that had the potential to impact our transitions through the islands and I return home. I reached out to Rick over the weekend as soon as I learned about it. He was so responsive, and very helpful.

First, the travel designer planned an amazing trip for us to Belize - great locations, activities, etc. Second, the designer and her team were very helpful and responsive! We went in January - when Omicron was surging. We were panicking about seeing if we change the dates, what happens with our travel insurance during different points of our trip if we do get Covid, etc. They helped field alllll of our questions with compassion and kindness - if we were driving them crazy they never showed it to us. Third, they were helpful and responsive even when we were on our trip. They helped reorganize some excursions on our behalf due to inclement weather in the forecast. Fourth, they were very organized and emailed/mailed us all the documents we needed, etc. and loved the personalized website they created for our trip. Lastly, it was great our designer reached out afterwards for feedback on our trip – I definitely recommend them, and look forward to working with them again in the future!

Excellent travel company, and very easy to work with despite the many time zone differences.  I loved the attention to detail and the different recommendations that were made as we planned the itinerary.  The tour guides, hotels, ground transportation and in-country flights were all great.  We had some concerns that we were using a NZ travel company for a trip to Australia, but there were no issues.  They know Australia well, and when we needed them when we were in country, they were very accessible.

We selected this tour company to create our itinerary for our 2020 trip to Australia and New Zealand because we wanted a customized and unique experience through a local company and after my first call with the two travel planners, I was completely sold that they were the right fit for our group.  They were just very kind people who were clearly passionate about traveling, and they really listened to what our group was interested in and the type of travelers we were.

They were absolutely amazing from the very first communication all the way until our trip concluded.  Every element of our trip was seamless, stress-free and effortless on our part; the boutique accommodations they set us up with were fantastic, and the activities and day trips they arranged far exceeded our expectations.  We had some weather challenges during our trip that caused a few activities to be cancelled or changed; they were absolute rockstars in getting an alternate agenda set up for us last minute.  It was also great having an in-country resource to help with other changes and questions along the way.  I believe I have interacted with most of the team throughout the experience and they have all been fantastic to work with.

I am typically the trip planner amongst my friends and family, so giving up the controls for the planning our trip to Australia and New Zealand was a huge change for me!  This tour company is truly first-class, full-service, and just a wonderful team to work with!  We hope to visit both Australia and New Zealand again in the future and will absolutely go back to this company - as cheesy as it sounds, they made our trip a real trip of a lifetime!  If you are considering utilizing local and passionate travel experts to help plan an unforgettable trip, I highly recommend the tour company!

This travel company did an incredible job of creating an amazing itinerary for us to visit Australia...we traveled from 3/1/2020 & returned home due to the covid 19 virus on 3/15/2020.  They listened to our desires during the planning & the trip fulfilled & surpassed our expectations.  The travel specialists were also available very quickly with any questions we had during the planning stages & especially responsive during the interruptions & concerns that the pandemic created.  The itinerary packet was detailed in such a way that each day we felt very taken care of & sure of where to be & when to be there, how to dress & what the plan was.  It created very stressfree  traveling.We can honestly say that needing to cancel our NZ part of the trip (with our travel specialist being in touch immediately to advise us to return to the US & not go onto NZ due to obvious reasons) did NOT make us feel "short changed" at all as we returned with such wonderful memories of Australia.  When all the madness is over & the dust settles we hope to travel internationally again (perhaps making it to NZ! & we will call on this travel company without hesitation.  They created a trip of a lifetime for us!

The trip planning was essential to enjoying our stay in Australia. Our travel planner did an excellent job coordinating all of the attractions we wish to see and coordinating the private drivers that were required to get us to and from different locations. I would certainly use our travel planner and her agency in the future she did an excellent outstanding job

Susan P. Trip of a lifetime by the travel planner at this travel company. Arrangements down to the last detail. Flew into Sydney. Did a harbor tour. Walked thru "the Rocks". Toured the Opera house-wonderful tour. Into the blue mountains-unable to hike due to wildfires. Flew to Uluru: Rode a camel to the field of lights and enjoyed a buffet dinner under the stars. Did a Segway tour around the base of uluru. Flew to Cairns and onto Port Douglas: Major highlight of the tour. The lodge was tranquil-right on the Mossman river-terrific spa.. Snorkled the Great Barrier Reef-Amazing! Helicopter into the rain forest stopping at a waterfal for lunch and then over the Great Barrier Reef. Private tour by 4x4 into areas of the rainforest. Flew to Brisbane and spent a day on a private tour of the Australia Zoo-best day evah. New Zealand was beautiful. Toured toured the south island with a small tour group. Flew to Fiji staying on a private island with its private resort Matangi. Most beautiful, tranquil, kind people. Great service, food. Snorkled and spent time in the spa. I fleww to Australia business class via an Australian airline. Comfortable seats, layed down flat for sleep. provided pad for the seat, pillow and blanket-actually got some sleep. Coming home out of Fiji it was American Airlines business class-Seats did not lay down-foot piece remained dowm. I purchased business class to be able to lay down because my legs swell and I have arthritis so the trip home was miserable. Didn't anticipate that.All in all the trip was quite amazing and well put together.Thank you!!

Our agent did an incredible job of setting us up with a wonderful trip to Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji.  The first time we spoke we gave her a general idea of what we wanted to see and do.  She sent an itinerary, we spoke again and made adjustments to that itinerary, and next thing we knew, it was a perfect plan.  Due to the fire and weather issues, she kept track of us, and advised us along the way of any changes that had to be made.    I can't say enough about how impressed I am with our agent's working so hard to make sure we had a memorable experience.  And I truly appreciate her efforts.

Our travel specialist is simply the best. She helped us to plan an excellent trip and made sure that all of our hotels and tour operators knew we were coming.Our trip was to Australia during the devastating bush fires. Our travel specialist monitored our trip and made sure our travels were not affected. When the fires prevented our visit to Kangaroo Island, our travel specialist seamlessly rerouted our trip.Our credit card was hacked during our trip and it took over a week to get a replacement card. Our travel specialist contacted all of our hotels and gave them her credit card to allow us to check it.Finally, towards the end of our trip, we had an unexpected tragedy in our family back home and were forced to cancel the final two weeks. Our travel specialist stepped right in, rerouted our flights and cancelled the remainder of the itinerary.The highlight of our trip was having our travel specialist waiting at the airport in Auckland on our way home. It was great to meet her in person and remarkable that she made the effort to meet us.First class lady, first class planning and first class company. We recommend her without reservation. In fact, we would encourage anyone to use her services.
