A wicked family trip that im sure the kids will chat about for a very long time

Had to send an email to express what a terrific time we had on our trip, we are all still buzzing, the helicopter flight, the walk and the jet boat ride was such a brilliant combination to experience your part of the world which is positively stunning! Thanks for your help organising etc, you made it very easy to put together a wicked family trip that im sure the kids will chat about for a very long time, actually everyone is keen to go again and stay an extra night! - RR
