Overall Gary and I were very pleased with the whole trip. All fellow passengers were friendly and respectful. Both the Tour Leader and the Driver were excellent, friendly and caring. We'll be back.

Thank you for a lovely few days. Safe driving on rugged roads in a comfortable coach. Was interested to see how people live in isolated places and the different landscapes NZ has.

Could not have faulted any of the care and attention from hotel accommodation and staff. Food from all venues extremely good and the staff were very polite and attentive. Our Tour Leader Pam was lovely, kind, very efficient and nothing was too much trouble.

This was my first ever group tour and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed having everything organised for me in a capable and friendly way. I can't speak highly enough of our Tour Leader Unna, who was very caring and also our Tour Driver was extremely good and very knowledgeable.

Just wanted to thank you all at Travelwise for the lovely wedding anniversary card. We also want to thank you for the wonderful trip you organised, we have not done much overseas travel but after this trip we plan to do more. Linda is a wonderful Tour Leader. Thanks again.

Thoroughly enjoyed the diversity of the Red Centre Rail Tour. Darwin to Adelaide on the Ghan is definitely the best way to go rather than the other way. Our Tour Leader Linda was great, very approachable, kept everyone in the loop, it's been an absolute joy to travel with her.

A big thank you to our Tour Leader, Unna, for the way she looked after our group on the Majestic Princess and in Shanghai. She went far beyond the call of duty sometimes and I think Travelwise are lucky to have her. I enjoyed being able to 'go with the flow' and not have to think of the details. Very best wishes for future trips.

We had a wonderful trip and great credit to Travelwise for arranging the tour as they have done. This was the best time we have ever had away, all attributed to the detail in the itinerary and Pam's skill as a tour leader. It was well balanced and serendipitous which makes for a great adventure, so thanks ever so much for inviting us to join the group.

Firstly, let me say that we had a wonderful holiday for our Mid Xmas Trip. A huge thanks to everyone especially our tour guide Jude and our coach driver, they were both first class. Everything was so well organised and the service we got was superb. I have told many people about it and they are amazed. I am passing on brochures to some friends who are interested in what you do.

Just wanted to let you know how great the Central Otago tour was. Loved every day, so thank you for putting it all together. Unna was an excellent guide and Dave, our bus driver, was so skilled and knowledgeable. I will definitely be travelling with Travelwise again.

Wonderful group - absolutely memorable holiday. We covered so much but at no time was there pressure probably because we were so well informed about what happens next.

I had a wonderful time. My first trip by myself and out of the my comfort zone, but I need not have worried. Straight away I felt welcome with everyone. Tour Leader Pam could not have done anymore, she was awesome. The bus driver was great too, he was so knowledgeable. We saw lots of things, everyone got on with everyone.
