What some of our recent clients have said about us:
WOW !! What a wonderful review. It’s great to have someone like yourself doing this for us. We really do struggle sometimes to entice people through our doors and into the park, generally, once people have been in, they love the place.John Owner, Gumdiggers Park
Thank you for getting the word out about his New Zealand lecture dates and the new book. I’ve seen a lot of interviews come across Steve’s desk and very few have asked as insightful questions as yours.Veronica SharonPersonal Assistant to National Geographic Wildlife Photographer
It is a great read and you took some brilliant photos! I’m so glad we managed to get you out on a trip and you got to see what our Hauraki Gulf has to offer.Catherine LeaFirst Mate, Auckland Whale and Dolphin Safari
