New Zealand is our passion and travel is our business so you'll understand why we can't wait to get to work each day and passionately promote New Zealand. Milford Sound Fiordland New Zealand.

Donna Thomas did an amazing job planning a trip for me and my family (me, my husband, and our two sons ages 15 and 20) to the South Island this past December. All her advice was perfect -- she crafted the most wonderful trip for us and at a price that I never could have gotten myself because she has such great contacts. For example, she arranged for us to stay at an apartment in Queenstown with the most fantastic views of the lake and the perfect location to all the stores and restaurants in town. This is one of her little "secret" places -- I didn't see it ever listed in any of the guidebooks, so I never would have found it on my own. And what is more -- the price was fantastic. Also, she did a terrific job mapping out our trip for the part we drove, detailed directions and maps of where to go and helpful suggestions of where to stop for gas or for a coffee, etc. I also really appreciated her high level of service. She actually called us shortly after we arrived in New Zealand and had checked into our first lodging to make sure we were fine and everything was to our liking. We couldn't have been happier with Donna. In fact, I tell all my friends, "don't even think of taking a trip to New Zealand without using Donna to plan it."
