We made it home with only minor delays in Vancouver.
Thank you so much for making our trip so memorable. We had a great time. You and your team did a fantastic job especially when our ferry to South Island was cancelled. This could have ruined our vacation if not for your prompt adjustments to our schedule. The changes caused very minor disruption and in fact enhanced our trip. Lorraine very much enjoyed the Coastal Pacific rail journey.
All arrangements went without a hitch and accommodation was surprisingly good. All our excursions with your partners were excellent and the weather was very cooperative.
We are so glad we went with First Light Travel. Such a professional company with great staff. You made our trip.

Bob emailed you letting you know how pleased we were with FirstLight, but I wanted to let you know how great Grand Pacific Tours has been. We have been treated first-class for the entire tour. The hotels have all been wonderful. Hotel personnel greeted us on the bus at each stop. They had the room keys ready and waiting and we were in our rooms less than five minutes from stepping off the bus.
The bus driver/tour director, Roger Duncumb, has been absolutely outstanding. He has a great personality and has been very informative. Every excursion was precisely planned and he had us where we needed to be at the exact time. The meals were all wonderful, but maybe we ate a little too much! The Ultimate bus is the only way to go and the small number of guests on the bus made the tour much more personable. We can never go back to a 48+ seat bus.
We had a good time being the only Americans amongst a wonderful group of Aussies! I have been on other bus tours that were complete disasters so this tour set the standards high for future tours.
I’ll be getting home in two weeks, so once I get my photos straightened out I’ll send some to you and also do some reviews.
Thank you, Kathy
