Carolyn was awesome! She met with me several times, and each time she was loaded with suggestions, helpful hints, and all of the answers to my questions. I have never traveled by myself on a tour, especially not this far from home. With Carolyn's advice I felt confident that everything would be fine. And it was. She has a wonderful friendly way, making her clients feel comfortable and well informed. And she really knew her stuff about New Zealand and its weather, recommending clothing choices, one of which I forgot to bring, a jacket, which I was able to purchase on an outing. The tour had a well rounded group of people, and we got along quite well. I am so glad that Carolyn was my advisor, and I will recommend her to any friends thinking to travel and looking for great advice.
