"Shannon,

Sharon and I would like to thank you and Experience New Zealand Travel for our wonderful trip to New Zealand. The tours, sights and accommodations that you recommended all exceeded expectations. Accommodations were conveniently located near the attractions with access to good transportation.

But most importantly was your prompt assistance in helping us to get to Milford Sound after the road was closed on the day our AAT tour bus was scheduled to drive in. When it became clear that the flight to Milford on the next day would also be cancelled due to weather, you provided us with the option of using the bus from Queenstown. I had no idea I could take a bus but I am glad we did. The bus ride over was scenic and we had a very informative driver. Had you not recommended the bus, I would be sitting at home right now disappointed that I went all the way to New Zealand and was unable to visit Milford Sound. I feel that the real test of a travel agency is solving a problem when something unexpected goes wrong. You and Experience New Zealand Travel passed that test with flying colors.

Our tour director Mark Hockley for the AAT Kings portion of the trip was the best. His commentary was always interesting, educational and most importantly kept us in good spirits. While we knew that he was an experienced guide, the entire group was astounded to find out that this was his first tour with AAT Kings. We had assumed from Mark's knowledge of the area and attention to detail that he had done this tour several times. Our driver Paul was very smooth and made us feel safe during the entire week. I would recommend both Mark and Paul for any of your bookings.

Thanks for your help and patience in planning our trip."
