    4.5 - Excellent

    The trip was really good fun and met a lot of good fun people, the activities were exactly what I wanted to do. Our tour guid was passionate about his job and created a fun environment for the group and helped if we had any problems. The coach we drive on was very good, nice, clean and comfortable.

    I've taken many tours but this one was the high light of my life. Went on our honeymoon with my pregnant wife and every accommodation was made for us by this amazing tour guide. Even though tour was for a younger crowd still felt that we belong. He made the extra effort to make sure everyone was taken care of. Had endless enthusiasm even when talking about places he had been at countless times before. Even answering my silly questions with a humorous wit. He didnt make this just a tour but a vacation with long lasting friends and memories that will keep me smiling for the rest of my life. I can't think of another person that deserves this nomination more. I wish him the best of luck in his long life journey where ever that may take him.

    I can't speak highly enough about the way in which Ainsley managed our tour down the West Coast of Australia. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and she was always thinking multiple steps ahead to ensure that everyone was aware of what they needed to do and by when. She's also just bloomin' good fun :)
