Liz helped us plan an amazing 1 month trip to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Liz and her team were always there to help and support while abroad and couldn't have been accommodating. They have personally tested all recommended guided trips and hotels as was apparent because all were first rate, including the drivers that transported us to and from the airports. I highly recommend Liz and her team to help you plan and execute your dream vacation, too! read more

Walter Peak Farm and Gourmet Barbecue Lunch
New Zealand

Wonderful way to spend a day! Delightful trip over on an authentic 1912 steamship with incredible scenery along the way. Gourmet lunch featuring local grilled meats and vegetables, served in a beautiful environment overlooking the water. Sheep dog exhibition after lunch was beautiful to watch and learn. Tour of the farm and interaction with the animals in a beautiful setting was a great way to end the day before heading back over to the town on the ship. Highly recommend.

Dear Mark and Lou,
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such a detailed review ! I am very glad you enjoyed your trip and it was truly special to have met you, we don't always get to meet our clients in person and I considered myself lucky to have had that opportunity on your way back from the trip.

I sincerely hope our paths cross again and we would all be very happy to assist any time in the future.
