Trip Review: Carol and Bob Pursell

Fantastic adventure in New Zealand

My wife and I, along with Sandy and George Boucher, arrived home about two weeks ago from a trip to New Zealand that you facilitated via Julie Johnston McManus of World Travel in Montoursville, Pennsylvania.

The four of us have been traveling together for 47 years after meeting in a small Bed & Breakfast in London in 1971.  We have traveled extensively in Europe, Canada, United States, and South America.

New Zealand was a distant stretch for us, and then we asked Julie for help on the recommendation of friends and she took us to you.  And that was our lucky day!

The most seamless, best organized trip we have ever experienced.

The five weeks we spent in New Zealand were possibly the most seamless, best organized trip we have ever experienced.  The accommodations were outstanding, everyone of them. The accommodations fit very well with the itinerary that we gave to you. Each and everyone exceeded our expectations from Auckland to Invercargill.  The people we met in the B&Bs were very accommodating and attentive to all of our needs. We did not consider them as hosts but rather New Zealand friends.  The food was excellent.  Tour suggested excursions were always right on target.

I believe the only thing that would have made the trip better was to stay longer.  This was meant to be a onetime experience, but already there has been suggestions of a return.  In fact we experienced a cyclone at Abel Tasman with flooding, mud slides, closed roads and bridges and it only showed how wonderful the people of New Zealand act.

Thank you for your part of this fantastic adventure!
