John has been our travel consultant for the last eight years. He has arranged trips to China, Vietnam, Australia, Tahiti, and several times to Europe. Every trip we have made has gone flawlessly, even when the weather conspired against us and snow closed Christchurch airport, John rebooked us on alternative flights so that we were able to connect with our train across Canada. John pays great attention to detail, listening to our plans and often improving on them through his extensive knowledge of the travel industry. Thank you, John, for always ensuring that our travel goes smoothly. - Carole & Rob Field
The trip went well and I was happy at the way you planned my transiting, I didn't have to wait too long and everything was perfect going and back. Just a bit jet lagged but thank you so much and I would definitely recommend you to anyone. - Pretty Brown
Hi John, thank you for doing our xpress passes for the Celebrity Cruise. We didn't expect you to do that. You are very special to us. The service you provide is fantastic and feels very personal. I will text you while we away and hope I don't have to say I am seasick. Thank you once again for all you have done for us. - Merilyn & Stu Bonell
Hi John, thank you for your E-Mail, our trip was just fantastic we were absolutely spoiled rotten, very relaxing and very busy, I think we may be hooked. The Hotel you booked us was very nice and very handy to the boat we were able to walk down to the wharf, the staff on the boat impressed us both very much with their attention to detail [remembering our names and what we liked to drink after the very first night] the service we received was without doubt the best I have received any where ever. Our trip went with out a hitch from the moment we left our house which made it even more unforgettable for all the right reasons so thank you John for all your input in to organising us the best Holiday ever, we will be in touch re the next one hoping to do a Mediterranean Cruise in a couple of years for my 60th. Many Thanks - Jeanette Wakefield
Being confident at booking local trips is one thing but when it comes to family holidays I always put my trust in John Ashcroft. From finding the best value for money across the numerous carriers/providers, to quick comprehensive itineraries including everything from accommodation, rental vehicles, transfers, activities and insurance, you can be comfortable in the knowledge that John has everything covered. John was enthusiastic, flexible, patient and creative in his thinking when it came to meeting all our requests. - Lance & Laura Cropper
