Silvana is a true professional who is passionate & knowledgeable with a finger on the pulse. A well balanced tour between excursions & free time. Highly recommend these tours. Leigh Noble – Katikati

What a lovely idea for SET to come up with. A trip in Silvana’s own extended back yard! A group of 10 people who didn’t know each other on Day 1 were a Team of 10 by Day 5. Thank you for providing us with the opportunity to escape for a few days. A highlight was my fishing prowess with a 3kg Salmon. But generally the quality of food throughout the trip was outstanding. Phil Thirkell – Wanaka

This is an action packed trip discovering Nelson, Motueka and surrounds. It involves walking, biking and hiking in beautiful scenery. Silvana is incredibly enthusiastic about this area and you come away just as excited as she is about all it has to offer. The restaurants we went to were superb. The make your own breakfast packs in our motel rooms were just as ordered. The motel was excellent. A highlight was catching salmon for lunch along with the wine tasting at Gravity Vineyard. The bike ride was magical with a full tide beside us on the trail and the Able Tasman National Park is always beautiful. I would fully recommend this trip to people who enjoy the outdoors – walking, biking and hiking. Debra Lockie – Auckland

Ruth & I have just finished Silvana’s  Top of the South Reunion Tour. We are so pleased we joined as it is in our back yard but we thoroughly enjoyed going around some of our tourist hot spots showing visitors Nelson. As always Silvana’s organisational skills are brilliant &  we ate at some of Nelson’s best eateries. Also as usual Silvana’s tours attract a very nice group of people who will join our list of friends to visit in the future. Seeing we can not travel outside New Zealand at this time, we  totally recommend this tour to anyone who would like to get away for a few enjoyable days.

Mark and I want to say a huge thank you to you and your team for organising our trip last week. Hard to believe the amount of fun and adventures we had in just 4 days! Exploring Nelson by foot after a great lunch was a good idea and gave us an appetite for the superb meal that evening.

Our initial concerns being first time e-bike riders quickly disappeared, as did the hours and time, and we thoroughly enjoyed the ride from Nelson to Mapua. The wine tasting and lunch that followed were a lovely reward. Successful salmon fishing, walking to Wharariki Beach, enjoying a beer at the Mussel Inn, the experience just goes on. And the gran finale of walking the part of the spectacular Abel Tasman completed a truly memorable time. Thank you so much, we would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys great scenery, great company, food, etc. We are looking forward to having further adventures with you! Margaret and Mark Jenkins.

Just returned home for a rest (!) after our action-packed Top of the South tour. A delightful five days full of adventures, from tasting peanut butter to tasting wine, from cycling beside the sea to hiking the Abel Tasman coastline, from the Centre of New Zealand to Farewell Spit. Great food, great company, great fun, and a great guide. A memorable few days. Thank you Silvana!
