Hi Christine,

We’re at the airport at CHC. We’ve had such a spectacular time. Know that we spent most of the trip smiling and many of those were attributable to you and how you worked with me.

I can’t thank you enough.

Dear Sofie,

As a seventy year old couple we had always planned our own trips. Our experience with you at First Flight Travel was exceptional. We could not have images a better adventure, experience which were “up close and personal” with the people, the culture and magnificent land of New Zealand!

As our first experience working with someone, you were always patient, knowledgeable and accomplish the results excessing our expectations! You identified unique experiences such as the Tram Restaurant in Christchurch and the PurePod, all glass cabin, in the mid of nothing but incredible landscape! These experiences coupled with the Paragliding at over 4,000 feet are memories we will never forget.

As a traveler we usually have some idea of what we want to see when we explore a new country but your attention to detail, your ability to understand what we needed and wanted was exceptional, thank you Sofie!

Throughout the trip if needed, you were always there. I would encourage anyone to work with an agent within the country they are visiting because the details are truly reflective by your knowledge, insights and extraordinary skills which can only come from living in a country.

I will email a few of my favorite pictures but if you see any particular ones you would like from Facebook, please let me know. I wish I had a picture of us at the PurePod together but I only have some silly ones of Bob being overjoyed!

I look forward to working with First Light Travel again when we visit Australia!

My very best,

I cannot tell you how overly pleased we were with First Light Travel! Simply exceptional, and I would most strongly recommend FLT for any trip to New Zealand and Australia. We would approach a tour or a hotel or an activity, produce the voucher FLT had prepared for us and others around us would ask “Where did you get those vouchers?” We would respond, “First Light Travel” People would look at us with envy with the ease of our registration at the various hotels and entrance to the attractions. I wish I had had several business cards to hand out.

Thank you First Light! We have just returned from an amazing 27-day vacation in New Zealand and with Dawn’s help, it was a fantastic, once in a lifetime experience. Dawn worked closely with us, setting up our self-driving tour including our suggestions and offering many great ones of her own. The end result was the perfect itineray in which there were no issues whatsoever. Kudos to Dawn at First Light for the great job she did in creating our perfect holiday!

Dear Shelly

We are still jetlagged and drag ourselves to work each day…? It is hard to get motivated. But we have to. The trip was very good. We are happy with your communication and organization of the trip. We think this was a great way of doing it and all was clearly detailed in the travel arrangements. I would do this way again as it was very well mapped out.

We had a great journey. We will come back to you soon .

Kind regards, Sabine

Truly, our travel agent Chrissy was able to know exactly what kind of adventure we wanted and crafted the perfect itinerary for us. The process was fairly straightforward for booking and the instructions we were given were flawless and simple. We could not have chosen anyone better to help arrange our trip.
