South Island Trip – 2006 Holiday Euphoria – Hi Jan, Just home, had a sip of your coffee – then it refused to percolate further. I’ll keep trying. Thanks again for such a great holiday!

South Island Autumn Glory Tour Mike & Jan
With grateful thanks, what an awesome trip you gave to mum & I. Mum got to re live an amazing experience as she travelled the South Island. She could never have managed this due to her lack of mobility if it had not been for you both.

Kerikeri Garden Festival Thank you Mike & Jan for an awesome weekend. Mum & I had such a nice time away. We saw so much, the gardens were sensational, our accommodation was lovely and we really appreciated the stop you made for us personally so we could catch up briefly with an old friend whilst en route. You both went the extra mile for us.

Turkey and Greece – 2009 I so much enjoyed this trip with Mike & Jan. I was so well looked after, I had so much fun, I saw so many amazing places. I can hardly believe that I got the opportunity to do this trip and if I was only a few years younger I would do it all again. The food was amazing, the people were so interesting and our local guide Tolun was a beautiful person. We loved him dearly. Thank you so much for inviting me to travel with you. The company was great. Loved you all.

Turkey and Greece Dear Jan & Mike, I had the best time ever. I saw & did more on your tour than any other I have been on. Our guide in Turkey was so much fun & so knowledgeable. I loved staying in his cave house but the balloon ride was the best. I really enjoyed the cruise & Greek islands more than I thought. The entire holiday was far more than I expected. You took care of everything. Thank you both and can’t wait to go on the next one.

My thoughts re Israel trip 2010 
You are going to Israel? You must be mad! Were we? No way! We were totally blessed. We came away being more informed of the ancient and recent history of this unique land and its people. With grateful thanks to our highly educated and knowledgeable local guide we can fully appreciate Israel through Jewish eyes. Thanks to Mike & Jan for arranging this tour, escorting us & looking after us all along the way. This tour was combined with Zealandier Tours Munich & Oberammergau tour, and what a bonus it was.

Israel 2010 We chose to travel with Zealandier Tours, hosted graciously by Mike Sowter & Jan Davies. It was an outstanding trip – good accommodation and transport but made very special by our knowledgeable guide – who explained and taught us both from the biblical prospectus and Israel history to present day. We would not hesitate to recommend this tour.
