Great itinerary and excellent organisation, all planned items had been delivered smoothly as expected. Accommodation at Queenstown was great – with a great view over the lake (except that it was rather stressful to carry the luggage via a long, narrow and steep stairs into the apartment unit, especially for senior folks). Accommodations at other locations were pretty good too. Choice of rental car for four was great too – comfortable and spacious. We have no reservation in recommending Relaxing Journeys to others, in particular the very reliable customer services of its Australian market manager, Ms Chelsea Sharman.
