My wife and I just returned from a wonderful four-week journey to New Zealand. Donna Thomas planned the trip for us. We have been blessed to have traveled quite a bit over the years, and I usually do the planning—but we have struggled to connect with knowledgeable local guides, and New Zealand is a complicated trip to plan; fortunately I found Donna.

Working with Donna and her team was a genuine pleasure. She listened to our expectations for the trip and provided valuable advice from the very start of our planning. She has definite, well-founded opinions that helped us to choose among various options, both in terms of where to visit and what to do while we were there.Her impressive knowledge of the country, based on many years of personal experience and development of local contacts throughout NZ helped us plan a great itinerary that met both our budget and our expectations. She was professional, responsive, and meticulous in planning every detail of our trip. We left home feeling well prepared for every aspect of our journey.

It was important to Donna to provide a very personalized, first-hand experience of the people of the country she calls her second home. She lodged us in wonderful B&B’s, and connected us with incredible local guides. At each stop on our itinerary we were greeted as if we were old friends. The B&B hosts and the guides clearly hold Donna in high esteem, and seem to treat her clients with extra care.They have obviously have become Donna's friends, but she just as obviously recommended them because they were the right choices for us.

We set out on our trip thinking it would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience (so many places to travel; so little time).But we just returned and are already talking about what we will do on our next trip—for which we will most certainly place ourselves in Donna’s capable hands.We recommend her without reservation.
