What exceptional service my clients
What exceptional service my clients, Mr. and Mrs. Kevitt Adler along with their adult daughter and son-in-law received from Grant St. Clair. They had a very detailed New Zealand with some Australia program and Grant was so knowledgeable, helpful and attentive to their every requests. We at Regency Travel could not have made this travel adventure for this family possible without him. We appreciate him and his knowledge and ability to take such excellent care of this family.

We all at Regency Travel have contacted Grant thru the years for our NZ and Australia customized travel arrangements and he has always succeeded in providing a wonderful, memorable sightseeing program with idea hotels for each individual request that we have made. We value and depend on him and how grateful we are that you have at Swain for us to contact!

Many thanks, Glenda Owen
