This company did an outstanding and amazing job in planning and coordinating our vacation. Every detail was taken care of and everything went smoothly. We could not have asked for a more perfect time. I would use their services again in a heartbeat and have recommended them highly to all of my friends.
My wife and I had an absolutely amazing experience with Latitude South. Claire and Karen went above and beyond to make our Australian vacation excellent and hassle free. Their service and the trip itself exceeded our expectations and the personal touches were greatly appreciated. Without hesitation, we would recommend Latitude South to anyone and would definitely use them again if/when we travel to New Zealand or back to Australia!
We are home with a suitcase full of memories that we could not have created without Karen’s help.
Karen was immensely patient as we worked through multiple iterations of our itinerary till we came upon the one that was perfect for us. We were all over the map when we started and are so thankful for her guidance and her willingness to offer different alternatives for us till we landed on one that was just right for us.
The cultural experience that Karen arranged for us was most authentic and allowed us to really appreciate the Maori culture. It was an experience that allowed for introspection while enjoying a taste of a different lifestyle among the Maori, in a private home. It was far from the hokey tourist cultural experience that most visitors will have.I won’t spoil it but if you book this with Karen (and you must) you will meet some pretty famous locals who will welcome you and share their culture with you.
I would highly recommend Latitude South to all our friends who are contemplating a trip Down Under.
Working with Latitude South was as good as could be. In the planning stage, Karen spent as much time as we needed to assist in developing our itinerary. She is delightful, fun, flexible and extremely knowledgeable about all things New Zealand. Nothing was too much trouble to adjust or change as our preferences became clearer. Her entire team, whom we were lucky to meet while in Nelson, couldn’t have been nicer nor more accommodating. They were helpful on the ground as needed and always had a good suggestion. We would choose to work with Latitude South again and again and would definitely recommend them to anyone planning a trip to New Zealand.
New Zealand had always been on my husband and my travel bucket list, but when we decided to go, we really needed help in narrowing down our to do and see wishes. Latitude South Travel Company was our answer to getting a taste of New Zealand in two weeks. LSTC was absolutely the most professional and organized company we’ve ever worked with. They listened to our ideas, made up an itinerary based on them, and then submitted it to us. After we approved it, they made all the reservations (including all air travel), and all we had to do was show up and ENJOY. We were not disappointed in anything.
What an amazing trip we had to Australia and New Zealand! It was everything we had hoped for and so much more! Every day unfolded with a new adventure or wonder of nature. Latitude South absolutely listen to our desires but also added their own expertise to ensure that each day was seamless and every minute well-spent. Even our down-time was perfectly timed to when we needed to stop, breathe and do laundry.😊 After 4 weeks – 2 each in Australia and New Zealand – we still weren’t ready to head home! Trip of a lifetime and memories of a lifetime indeed! Thank you Karen and Team Latitude South!
