Dear staff at Elm Wildlife Tours
Warm thanks for a well-organised tour for Ms Veera Turkki earlier in December. She thoroughly enjoyed it. Also, I would personally like to thank for the good and flexible online customer service - wish the Finnish tour organisers learn from it.

I was with the marathon-ready (?!) segment of the Mountain Outin' group you picked up on Nov. 22. Because I was in such a state of euphoria that I was rendered speechless, I didn't thank you properly, although I'm not sure I ever can thank you enough. Thanks for helping us get up close and personal with seals and penguins and black swans and oystercatchers and little shags and big shags and one kingfisher and all the other creatures I can't conjure at the moment. Thanks for being so completely present and attuned to what we needed. Thanks for letting us have a glimpse into the passion of your work, your life.

The day spent with your tour guide was THE HIGHLIGHT of our entire trip. Seeing the penguins and seals unclose was truly a once in a life time experience.

I just want to say how much I enjoyed the tour with your guide, Shannon. He was really very good, a coup for you to have zoology graduate (Masters at that) who really understands the wildlife and their characteristics, and can identify them as well Nothing was too much trouble, Highly reccommended!! Well done to you all.
Best regards Graeme Cooksley Australia

Elm Wildlife Tours
Enclosed are a few items from the "far north" These are for you in appreciation of the terrific tour you provided for us. It was one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand. We wish we could have spent more time in the Dunedin area as we enjoyed the people, the city, and the ocean side location. Thanks very much.

We so enjoyed our time with you on 1 December. The day was incredibly special and we learnt so much. How we loved seeing the yellow-eyed penguins, the seals, the birds (will we ever forget the albatrosses!!) in their own environment. It's wonderful to know that people like yourself do so much and care so much for our very precious environment. Thanks again for such an unforgettable experience. With all our very best wishes.

We are a Singaporean couple on honeymoon in New Zealand and had gone on a wildlife tour organised by Elm in Otago Peninsula. We would like to commend that we had a great time and the tour conducted by Shannon & Sean were fantastic! They gave us a very informative tour on the wildlife in Otago Peninsula. In addition, we would like to express our deep appreciation for the tremendous help that they've rendered to us when they dropped us off at the Larnarch Castle.
With warmest regards, Chee King & Jacey

I just wanted to email you and thank you very much for taking me out on a trip yesterday. It was a fantastic experience seeing some of our country's beautiful wildlife up close in their natural environment. Shaun was a fantastic guide and it was obvious to all on the tour how passionate he is about what he does. I really believe that my day yesterday was the most enjoyable one I have spent in a long time.

"Bloody marvelous" What can I say Brian. I have always promoted you as being the best and you proved it 100% plus. We had a wow of a day and every min was great.The drive back viewing Dunedin lights was the finishing touch. I was actually all penguin outed in the end.
