"I have finally returned from our cruise and Hunter Valley wine tour in Australia and my mom and I wanted to thank you again for being willing to provide a Auckland winery tour on such a last minute basis and for giving us the best wine tour we had in New Zealand. None of the other communities we did wine tours with through the cruise line were as informative or just fun to be with. You gave us the best start to a truly wonderful vacation. We fell in love with Auckland just from seeing it through your perspective. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
