We just wanted to say a massive thank you for organising our trip and being so helpful with the arrangements – including arranging to have our bags delivered!
We had a fantastic flight, the views were truly unbelievable and the picnic was wonderful. Best experience ever, thanks so much!
After four wonderful weeks in New Zealand it’s hard to name a single highlight, but our flight to Mt Owen is definitely a prime candidate. Thanks for this unforgettable memory.
What a magnificent experience you gave Ray and I today. From the time we took off to our return to base, everywhere were stunning sights and visions to behold. To stand on Mt Olympus and perhaps walk in the hobbit footsteps and recognize the rocks and scenery, to the wonderful morning tea at Mt Owen, and later the journey around the mountain to the Mines of Moria and the Misty Mountains, every single minute has given us and me in particular, amazing memories to relive for years to come.
We are deeply grateful for all you did for us, thank you, thank you, thank you.
