Unique getaway with amazing people

I booked the stargazing tour as a surprise present to my partner who is into astrology and just recently bought a new camera :) Lucky us on that night we were the only couple attending so it was a very special tour. Even without asking they guys prepared with some cake. It was soo sweet. Lots of preparation from their side (very well organised:knowledge,stories,equipments,food) we heard interesting stories, insights to the mythical maori legends, Kylie sang and she has a magnificent voice, got a nice supper, we could have not asked for any more or better. It was a very special experience with amazing guides. Thank you Kylie and Lyndon! We would like to congrats to your family business, you did a fantastic job and wish you many more impressed customers. With love Tunde&Andras

Kia ora Tunde and Andras, Thank you so much for your fantastic review! We had a blast with the two of you. I loved that you kept it a secret for Andras's birthday, it was amazing to be a part of something so special. You guys deserve all the happiness in the world. Take care, all the best, and I know that we'll see you back this way again some day - Dunedin is addictive! Nga mihi, Kylie
