Booking Reference is CIJK19X1714780.

I refer to above Booking confirmation regarding my Booking for Milford Cruise. I turned up at 6 30am for pick up at Central Queenstown after driving down from Wanaka. Rang the tour operator who advised me that I did not complete my Booking. I dont get this, as your email dated 24th April confirms my booking. Can you call me to explain. Thanks Kushma Nair Mob 021533213
