Kah Cheong Lim's Golfing Holiday

Singapore

We had a golfing party of six and our tour of NZ North and South golf courses were just spectacular and memorable; playing some of the top courses in NZ like Cape Kidnapper, Kinloch, Jack's Point and Mill Broke. The accommodations were generally of great selection by the Agency and were located not far from the golf courses or city centers. Jo of First Light Travel was our point person and she ensured that all little details were crossed and dotted. On top of that, she had been most accommodating with our changes to the itinerary. I will not hesitate to strongly recommend Jo to handle your trip planning to NZ.

First Light Travel was amazing from start to finish. Christine was so helpful while she came up with the perfect itinerary for our honeymoon in New Zealand. If I had a question during the trip I knew she would be able to get back to me quickly.

We had such a wonderful experience with the itinerary that she created for us!

My wife and I used Jo at First Light Travel to plan our honeymoon tour of New Zealand. First Light took care of everything, which was fantastic since we were too busy planning our wedding at the time. They asked us for our likes and interests and planned out an itinerary that suited us quite well. Our tour hit some Lord of the Rings highlights, saw majestic nature in Queenstown and Milford Sound, indulged us with wonderful wine tours, and had some fun river adventures too. We got a bit of luxury, a bit of relaxation, and some adventure. We fell in-love with New Zealand and can't wait to go back. The trip was well organized and gave us plenty of time for travel from place to place. It was such a pleasure to have everything planned; we just showed up and enjoyed.

Flawless trip! First light was recommended by our friends. From the moment we connected with Jo, she was on top of making sure our trip was planned and that we were able to accomplish all of our travel goals. She took careful note of the activities we wanted to do, and gave us great recommendations on activities that she thought we should do. Every day was perfectly planned out, from what time to leave, an accurate description of the activity, and other recommendations to do in our (very little)downline. My Husband and I were only able to visit NZ for 2 weeks and somehow Jo managed to get us to all of our destinations with a couple extra stops along the way. Jo had great communication with us, and did everything she could to stay within our budget (which we thought would be impossible during the Holiday travel!) We have already recommended Jo and First Light to a few family and friends! Thank you for an unforgettable 2 week journey through your beautiful country!!

Deb was FANTASTIC! From the start she asked me all the right questions about our family and what types of activities we wanted to do. She planned the trip absolutely perfectly! From the types of accommodations, to the car rentals, to the activities we did, to the special dietary restrictions (nut allergies and vegetarian) everything was exactly what we wanted for a very memorable family vacation. We loved having the detailed itinerary created by Deb and the voucher booklet. Each day she had meticulously planned out the drive times, the activities with descriptions, reminders to call places to confirm bookings, accommodation specifics. I honestly cannot recommend Deb and First Light Travel highly enough! You will be in GREAT hands with this travel agency! Thank you Deb for helping us create the most magical family trip, these memories will last a lifetime!
