We had a truly marvelous time in New Zealand. Everything you organized worked flawlessly, from the hire car, to the hotels, to the other activities, and the quality of it all was of the highest standard. It really made for a perfect honeymoon, exactly what we were looking for. I would recommend you to anybody considering travel in the region. It is clear that you have the local knowledge needed and understand the attention to detail that makes the difference in customer service.
Mercy and I agreed we would go back to NZ with our kids sometime in the next year or so, so we’ll be in touch again to organize a similar trip. Working with yourself and Down Under Endeavours was excellent. Considering that I was making plans quite late to the day, both the options on offer and the patience in making sure every detail was to my liking was hugely appreciated. Despite the distance and time zone differences, corresponding via email was the perfect way to work through the options and make the plans. I thought you were very responsive to my many queries, I appreciated the patience very much.
The highlight of the trip was both the hotel and flight on to the glacier at Mt Cook. That was such a magic first destination, in fact we wished we stayed there longer! Coming in a close second was Milford Sound, and again, the flight back (instead of the bus) was seriously welcomed, it would have been a bit grueling to take the bus back. Also excellent was the helicopter picnic on the mountain. That was a special time for us.
Advice for future travelers: Don’t pack too much into each day, go for a few, really meaningful, quality things rather than attempting to see everything! (As we did).
