Neil and Alison

We have both been impressed with the service Bryce has provided. Helpful suggestions for things to do and see, based on his experience and contacts, and going the extra mile to secure bookings when  vacancies have been tight.  The holiday package has been neatly coordinated and finalised so that everything flows. When our holiday was disrupted with Covid, Bryce cheerfully set about dealing with the rebooking and crediting of our bookings.


Picture the scene. I was crying at the bottom of the garden. England had just lost the final of the Euro 2020 cup. I was devastated. I needed to escape. Escape somewhere warm and fun. I also needed to do it immediately. So I called the one man as always delivered for me, in my time of need. That man is Bryce Read. Within 14 days I was drinking cocktails by the pool in Rarotonga. Everyone else told me it couldn’t be done and the flights were booked up for months. But Bryce was able to book us a great all-inclusive package at a top hotel. He even managed to get us a stunning day to day trip to Aitutaki.


I'm finally back in chilly Sydney, but I just wanted to pop you a quick note to say thanks for booking my NZ trip. The accommodation in both places was fantastic and your communication around the flights and accommodation changes was amazing! Made the trip so much easier so thank you!
