Hi Kasey,

 We were totally satisfied with our experience working with you and First Light. Planning the trip was easy. You offered great suggestions and were flexible in helping us tailor the trip to our interests and schedule. Bookings were smooth, and whenever we showed up at a new hotel or event, everything went just as planned, without a hitch. 

Overall, we could not have been happier with our visit to New Zealand and the superb service you and First Light provided in making it such a positive experience. Thank you, and feel free to use my comments any way you choose.

Hi Chrissy,

We loved this trip! Being frequent travelers, it was the best we have had!

Everything was perfect: The timing in each place, The hotels (highlight to Rotorua ) and the Tours.

The country is fabulous with the nature, the people, etc... We would like to thank you Chrissy for all of it, without to know us (only by mail) you understood exactly our profile! Of course we'll recommend you to our friends at the first opportunity.

Next time: Fiji Islands

Once again, many thanks!

Very kind regards!

Hi Shelley, George and I are finally back in the USA! We want to thank you for helping to make our trip an amazing experience. Without your expertise, there are places we would never have gone and some lovely B&B hosts we never would have met!

Thanks again,

Fran and George Singer

Hi Jo, Yes, the trip was wonderful. We had a great time. Specifically the cruise in Dunedin unearthed a friend of an old friend. Loved the Larnach Castle. As mentioned previously, Steve Hanrahan, our driver to Queenstown was fabulous. In Addition to driving, we stopped at Gibbstown Winery and Arrowtown. We upgraded to a junior suite at the Rydges which we liked a lot. The cycling experience proved challenging 3 x 25 year olds and us. But fun any way. Matt the driver was very cool delightful and reliable. Wellington, though a rainy, was wonderful. We visited Te Papa, with an incredible Gallipoli exhibit a fabulous Cyndy Sherman exhibit at the City Gallery and a tour of Parliament. We had dinner at Dockside on the Harbour. The Sofitel was fabulous. We loved it and our room. The Saturday tour was great and our guide, Daniel, delightful. Likewise our Sunday venture to Wakaike ( sp?) very pleasant. Carmen our guide very good. She took us to an artist's home and we are contemplating buying a piece.

All in all a fabulous trip!
