“The Exclusive Travel Group surpassed themselves in the organisation of my husband’s 70th birthday discovery trip of New Zealand.  With our schedule including staying at some of the best Lodges, on both North and South Islands, to incredible helicopter trips, boat excursions and fly fishing par excellence...this was the experience of a lifetime, truly remarkable.”

Although I am knee deep in wedding to-do's and not sure where to start or what time zone I am on, I just wanted to be sure to drop you a quick note of Thanks!  

It was a trip of a lifetime for us all. We have never been to such incredible places, stayed in such amazing spaces, seen such beautiful things and experience so many incredible moments - everything was absolutely perfect!

I just wanted to be sure you knew how appreciative we all are of all your efforts, patience and time because we had such an amazing trip and it is all thanks to you!

Thank you, thank you!

“It would be hard for me or any of the participants, especially our boys, to be any more effusive about our trip.  Everything was great and everyone had a wonderful time. All the arrangements were fun, exciting and planned and executed without a hitch...All in all, we had a fantastic time and I couldn’t thank you enough for all your wonderful suggestions and strong execution on the plan. You made me look like a genius travel planner!”

“Now we are back from our New Zealand adventure, I just wanted to thank you for all the work you put in to making it such a fantastic trip. We absolutely loved all the places we stayed - Annandale was definitely the highlight for us both - and the things we did and saw along the way, thanks entirely to meticulous planning and organisation on your behalf. For all kinds of reasons this was a much-need holiday and one which we will never forget. Thank you again for taking such good care of us.”

“Anna and I had a magical time on our honeymoon. Thank you for helping us put it together. We were absolutely blown away by Minaret Station and Laucala. The latter left us speechless.”

“I wanted to thank you for arranging our trip to New Zealand. It has been hard to adjust to re-entry to the real world at home. My husband and I both enjoyed every moment of our trip. The arrangements were so well organised and each place we visited seemed more beautiful than the last and all the people we came in contact with were so nice...It has been very hard to decide on our favourite spot, all were outstanding.”

“We really appreciated your attention to detail…The highlight of the trip was the Milford Track hike…It was spectacular from start to finish…We felt very much taken care of the entire two weeks. Thanks again - I think it was one of our best!”
