I simply wanted to give a huge bouquet for the wonderful experience we had on the Grand Tour.  Both Ian (the Bus Driver) and Suzie (the Caterpillar Guide) were fantastic advocates for our City of which I'm still very proud of by the way.  The knowledge and the friendly manner in which they informed our group of everything was outstanding.  The Grand Tour is outstanding value for money-we will certainly be recommending it .

Congratulations
Norm Withers MNZM (retired Christchurch City Deputy Mayor)
