"Thank you for organising my holiday. You live in the most beautiful country, I really loved it. Your itinerary suited me to a tee. Everything went well and I managed to see most things, except the dusky dolphins, rifleman and the morepork, just enough to tempt me back! The organisation was brilliant with enough information to get me from a to b, I was able to maximise my time there. Thank you."
