Feedback from our customers

"We had fantastic reports regarding your tours! Thank you so much. We will continue to promote your products with total confidence."

"Just wanted to say just how much we enjoyed the tour with you. It was so much fun, we learnt and saw a lot, and of course eating at Logan Brown was a culinary highlight! Thanks for the recipe. I will enjoy making it."

"Enjoyed the Culinary Tastes Challenge. I thought you ran the day very well, keeping all the competition as light as possible."

"The kitchen tour was a real ‘hit’ and a truly memorable experience. It was wonderful to be hosted so well, it is often our delegates who are doing the hosting of clients and they thought it was very special to be on the receiving end of such lovely hospitality. Thank you for delivering an extremely professional and fun experience for our delegates. The ladies who were your guides seemed as wonderfully warm, professional and welcoming as you are."

Jeanette Stanton, CINZ Conference Events Manager, November 2011

On behalf of AMP we would like to thank you and your team for your exceptional effort for designing and managing the Capital Tastes & Art Meet Craft Beer, Capital Coffee and Restaurant Kitchen Tour, and the Chocolate Espresso tours, which were part of our activity programme at the 2012 AMP Annual conference.

These tours provided a unique and memorable experience of Wellington and were thoroughly enjoyed by all. We are pleased to say you received a rating of ‘95% met or exceeded expectations’ for the partner programme activities.'
