René Aukens, December 2011

“It’s been almost a year ago that we travelled to New Zealand. And we regularly remind us about the other end of the world. (…) Our neighbour, a dentist, even intends to give up his practice and immigrate to New Zealand.”

„I want to send you a VERY BIG THANK YOU for the trip you have booked for us. All services were perfect and I was honestly very impressed to receive such a big dossier with information, maps etc. This was really very professional! We had a fantastic time in your wonderful country and are already thinking of how we can manage to be back soon again. We fell in love with the country and people who were without exception marvellous.“
