Review for 8 Day Southern Traverse TourI have been meaning for weeks, since we returned from our South Island holiday, to thank you for arranging our itinerary for us.
All the travel and accommodation worked out perfectly. There was nothing that went amiss. It was so relaxing to travel by bus between each town, rather than hiring a car and driving ourselves.
The drivers were a fount of knowledge with their many comments and observations as we travelled. The shuttle buses and taxis between motel / hotel and the bus stops (and vice versa) were all on time and the drivers were helpful.
The jet boat adventure and the TranzAlpine Train trips were great. At Fox Glacier, we enjoyed the glacier walk and the snow covered mountain experience. We had spectacular cruises on Milford and Doubtful Sounds. We didn’t see the snow-caped peaks, but we saw plenty of rain and waterfalls down the glaciated rock faces. In Queenstown we went up the chair lift, down on the flying fox and enjoyed the lake cruise (hang gliding was a bit beyond us!). Dunedin’s history was very interesting as we learnt from the museum at the railway station and the various old churches that we visited. The Dunedin Harbour Cruise was spectacular, especially seeing the albatross and later the penguin colony.
I can’t believe that although I am semi-retired our days are so full. Anyway, at last I have managed to thank you.
