Liz and Mark Jones, USA – Best Value Tour
I wanted to write you a note to thank you for planning such a wonderful trip for both Mark and I.
I must admit that when my husband suggested that we tour New Zealand on a motorcycle, I was a bit reluctant. I didn’t know how I would feel after twelve days of riding on the back of a bike, living from suitcases, perpetual helmet hair. I wasn’t sure that would be too much fun. But what I found was a riveting and friendly experience where I felt right at home.
The 10 others we toured with became family, a community of men and women from various cultures. People I will never forget. I gained an immense respect for the New Zealand people too. Its relaxed atmosphere and the warmth added so much to this unique vacation experience.
As for GoTourNZ… we were treated like family and valued friends.
Ian… it was especially wonderful having you on tour with us every step of the way. As a business owner myself, I know what a huge commitment it must be to travel with your customers, apart from your own family for days at a time, working from sun up to well past sundown, entertaining and serving our needs. But you were a true professional and an absolute joy to tour with. You are genuine, knowledgeable and fun.
The motorcycles we were given were practically new and extremely comfortable and very safe. I for one was thrilled that I could pack what I wanted in additional suitcases and have them at any time. On those days I wanted to let my husband have fun with the guys, I appreciated the tour in the van. It was fun, informative and a great way to connect with the other ladies.
The countryside was stunning. The NZ people warm, the accommodations were more clean, comfortable and all that I had hoped for. The food was great. I ate far too much of it though. Both Mark and I will be talking about this trip for years to come. In fact, we are already talking about our next tour. Thank you so much for all that you have prepared, for your dedication to excellence,
your new friendship and sharing your lovely family.
