Mike and Sylvie Derrick

"..Finally I would like to say that we really enjoyed our holiday. It goes without saying that you provide an excellent service, and opens up opportunities for the disabled which would otherwise not be possible. Thank you so much. As for your country, the scenery is mind blowing." Mike and Sylvie Derrick

John Banham

"..I would like to congratulate you both for planning such a great tour of the beautiful north and south islands of New Zealand. What's more I want to thank you both for how you conducted the tour, and took care of the party. It was fun from beginning to end, beyond my expectations - being a wheel chair user. I am so glad that I was able to achieve a life long ambition to see New Zealand, which Kiwi Accessible Tours made possible." John Banham

Sara Georgeson

"..I find it difficult to get a holiday because of transport issues and needing personal care assistance. Frank made things very easy for me, organising the itinerary and accommodation. He gave suggestions of things we might do (and our group had ideas too). If we spotted something on the way that we were interested in he happily stopped. Above all, Frank was great fun to have as our travel guide and companion. I certainly would not hesitate to go with Frank again, and highly recommend him to people who need support to go on holiday!
