Sincere thank you Kim and David for providing us with such a wonderful, hassle free holiday in Tasmania.

I would also like to add my praise and gratitude for making the tour so enjoyable. Thank you David and Kim for a wonderful trip, i will & have recommended your business to many friends & family.
I would like to add my praise for the wonderful way in which the tour was organised. I too would like to say how safe I felt and the interaction between Kim and David and the tour group made every one feel at home. The fact that you booked us into other family businesses added to the feeling of "family" that was the signature of the trip. I will recommend your business whenever I get a chance and hope I can travel with you again.
Thank you for a Wonderful holiday to Tasmania You have gone above and beyond all expectations. Your Planning and Care made each one of us feel Very Special. And I will certainly be recommending your Business to everyone, Young and Old."
I had a lovely holiday with all you fellow travellers, being a small group we got to know each other very well, even though some of us have known each other for many years but have reconnected! DAVID could make that bus dance and whirled us around all these mountains and corners in an amazing and very reassuring safe fashion. Thanks to you both, we just walked in to pre-arranged venues and received top treatment, with top meals and accommodation. I also liked the way you supported family owned businesses who you returned to. Fully recommended company!
