I would like to thank Grand Pacific & Jemma Rosen from Global Journeys personally, for organising an amazing holiday for me. Highlights selected were varied & diverse.
Our Coach driver Gordon & tour director Geoff were the best!! They interacted with the passengers making our trip relaxed & fun, so much fun! We dubbed Gordon our hero & he will be remembered fondly by us all I'm sure! As will Geoff! Both Geoff & he were a great team as they bounced off each other. This was on the South Island.
Yvonne our driver on the North Island was a pleasant & personable person, but felt she failed a little when it came to commentary. However she had very big shoes to fill after the previous duo! Nothing was too much for Geoff if he was asked for advice he was willing to suffice. I found him polite & caring. He did his utmost to track down the loss of my camera, unfortunately to no avail.
The commentary between these two was exceptional. It was very interesting & so informative to be told about their beautiful country. As we meandered our way through the rolling hills, winded our way through the mountains, with precision driving by Gordon. Viewed the lush green countryside full of farms with sheep, cattle & deer... never knew there were so many breeds of sheep! The sustainable fruit & vegetables being grown dotted throughout are highly commendable.
Then there were the fun things we did. What a holiday!! Something for everyone! The accommodation chosen was outstanding. Congratulations on that front! Food was of the highest quality & plenty of it! Walter Peak, was a very big highlight. However, there were many! Of course Milford Sound was breathtaking, our helicopter flight to Fox, Franz & over Mount Cook was enviable. The inclusions in our tour were amazing & coach comfort was outstanding.
All in all very good value on the whole. I cannot rate anything less, but the best! Thank you so much for making my holiday relaxing, full of fun & memorable. Keep up the good work! I will definitely recommend this firm to my friends & family. I just wish Grand Pacific did tours other than in New Zealand as I think I still want to travel overseas & would certainly choose you to travel with Grand Pacific again.
