Pam handled difficult situations well.  She was bright, breezy and well organised.  Bernie our driver was brilliant.  I cannot repeat often enough about how well Pam handled her diverse group of people.

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 knowledgable.  I will definitely be travelling with Travelwise again.

Unna was top class as Tour Leader, we couldn't have asked for better.  The driver was also one of the best that we have had.  A well planned tour.  Thanks!

Once again, Travelwise Holidays, well done from me 10/10.  The coverage of the region and the stops along the way rounded the tour off to perfection.

I had a wonderful wonderful time.  My first trip by myself and out of 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 knowledgable.  We saw lots of things, everyone got on with everyone.  I met some wonderful people.  One of my best trips. Thanks again everyone.

I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and felt the itinerary covered all the main attractions.  The Rocky Mountaineer trip was a highlight as was Alaska.  The trip was very well organised and the coach driver got us everywhere on time and gave interesting local information.  A brilliant trip and I loved it all.

An amazing cultural experience from long red sunrises, animal safaris, great wine tasting, the rugged Cape of Good Hope in the south to Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls in the north, it's been a magnificient adventure.  Thank you Travelwise!!
