• By Jess Gibson

A REDCLIFFS couple has

returned from their trip to

Hawaii with extra luggage.

Annie Crombie, 51, and

husband Terry Beentjes, 53,

each bagged two trophies

after placing in the US Slalom

Windsurfing Nationals in Maui

late last month.

Crombie won sport section

and finished third in the

women’s competition, while

Beentjes finished second in

both the semi-pro and men’s

40-59 racing events.

“We’re stoked,” Crombie

said. “We didn’t have any

expectations to be on the

podium.”

Both took part in 24 races

over the three-day event and

had only trained for one

week in the lead-up to the

competition.

ONE OF the owners of Sumner’s

Cave Rock Apartments says he

will appeal a High Court decision

if an order is made for the land to

be sold.

Peter Foster is one of four

owners who have refused to sell

the abandoned complex at 11

Marriner St for a split settlement

from IAG and the Earthquake

Commission, which was made

last year.

Forty-six out of 50 owners

agreed to the sale after fighting

a long battle with IAG and EQC

for an amount which remains

confidential.

About 70 per cent of the offer

has been paid to owners while the

rest remains invested in a trust

account because the remaining

four have refused to sell.

The High Court is expected

to make an order as to whether

they must adhere to the sale of

the complex or not at a hearing

which is expected to begin on

October 21.

A GREAT effort from husband and wife

windsurfers Annie Crombie and Terry

Beentjes in Hawaii on page 1 today.

Annie won the sport section and was

third in the women’s competition at the US

slalom nationals in Maui.

Terry was second in both the semi-pro event and the men’s

40-59 age group racing. He was lucky he got to compete. He

broke his thumb the day after their flights to Hawaii were

booked.

The couple also hadn’t been doing much windsurtfing for

several months, making their performances even more sweeter.

“We’re stoked. We didn’t have any expectations to be on the

podium,” Annie said.

Also on page 1 today, we have more developments in the long

running saga over the Sumner apartments.

‘Banks-centric’ film in the works

• By Jess Gibson

A SHORT film showcasing Port

Levy is set to be made.

Peninsula will be a fictional

drama about three isolated

people who manage to connect

in a very surprising way.

Award-winning editorturned-producer

Scott Flyger

and screenwriter/director Fiona

McKenzie have teamed up to

produce the film, which has been

inspired by real-life events.

Flyger, who lives in Governors

Bay, said the project will be

“Banks-centric.”

“We wanted it to be based in

a small township in the Banks

Peninsula, as it has very beautiful

aspects and scenery. It’s moody

and can have lots of sunshine or

dark clouds. It’s quite a dramatic

landscape.”

He said the film will

incorporate a cast, music talent,

crew members and props from

around the peninsula.

Flyger was editor of the

BAFTA award-winning comedy

series, That Mitchell and Webb

Look, and his other works have

won awards around the globe.

After writing for children’s

staples Play School and What

Now, McKenzie was a journalist

on CTV, before training as a

director at South Pacific Pictures.

Lyttelton resident and theatre

actor Tom Trevella has been cast

as Mark, a sound engineer who

moves to Banks Peninsula to

try and find his place within the

world.

Mr Trevella said he is excited

to see the film put a spotlight on

the area and its creative people as

“so much of the industry is based

in the North Island.”

Trevella will star in the film

alongside Jasper Sutcliffe, who

is set to play Toby, and Amber

Ranson.

Ranson, who has Down’s

syndrome, has a goal to star in a

film before the end of the year.

The team are on track to

fundraise the $15,000 production

budget, which will cover props

and costumes, location and

accommodation fees, equipment,

publicity, money for the cast and

crew, and catering contributions.

Screen CanterburyNZ is

supportive of the project and is

helping with marketing, as the

organisation wants to grow the

area as a filming destination.

Flyger said the crew hopes

to start shooting in September

so the film is wrapped up by

December. People who donate

to the film will be offered an

on-screen credit and will be

kept up to date throughout preproduction

and production.

Double

cause for

celebration

•From page 1

“We came out of winter

and haven’t windsurfed since

February so it was a hard seven

days. I got blisters all over my

hands and feet,” Crombie

said.

She said they stayed fit before

heading over by mountain

biking and doing yoga.

Beentjes almost opted out of

competing after he broke his

thumb the day after the flights

were booked.

“He was only three weeks

out of his plaster when he

competed. Once we got up

there the vibe of the event got a

hold of him,” Crombie said.

The couple had more than

just trophies to celebrate

during the prize-giving as it

was on the same day as their

31st wedding anniversary.

Crombie and Beentjes

have both been windsurfing

since the early 1990s and

have competed in many

competitions in New Zealand

and overseas.

Crombie said their two

teenage daughters, Kate and

Emma, have been all “around

the world to windy places.”

Four apartment owners prevent sale

•From page 1

The complex, which includes

49 apartments and the Cave

Rock Tavern, suffered damage

in the February and June, 2011,

earthquakes.

Mr Foster, who owns the

tavern, is unhappy with how the

money has been split as the area

he owns covers more land than

the other units.

About 30 of the units were

demolished in 2012, while the

rest remain damaged.

Mr Foster said members of the

body corporate committee who

no longer have a standing unit

should not have been able to vote

on the sale of the land.

He said if he has to appeal

he will request an appointed

administrator to deal with the

matter, which he believes has

been handled poorly.

“We’ve had the tavern valued

by a professional valuer and

what he is going to get under the

reassessed ownership interest is

more than the tavern is worth

anyway.”

“What he wants is a

substantially bigger sum out of

the total sum for the tavern than

it’s actually worth,” he said.

Thirteen of the 50 owners

which formed a body corporate

died and some of their family

members have taken over the

battle.

Mr White said he hopes the

process will be over soon for the

46 owners “who just want to get

on with their lives.”

“The rest of us will be

absolutely delighted if the

four individuals would at

least agree to the sale,” Mr

White said.

Meanwhile, Mr White said

the complex remains a target for

vandalism including graffiti and

deliberate flooding.

“It’s not good for the

neighbours or the community in

Sumner to see the place getting

bashed around. It’s dreadful.”

THE BANKS Peninsula Water

around the Okuti River and

improving its health.

It is a priority action of the

water zone committee to use

mahinga kai as an indicator of

the health of waterways around

Banks Peninsula.

Mahinga kai is about more

than just survival for Ngāi Tahu,

it is about maintaining the

things that sustain and nourish

people and that bring well-being

like clean water, air, soil and sufficient

shelter.

Access to, and being able to

gather, clean and healthy kai as

Ngāi Tahu ancestors did, and

doing this in a sustainable way is

also important.

Another planting day was

held for Te Wharau – one of

four priority streams in

Whaka-Ora – at Orton Bradley

Park on August 4.

GREAT READS INSTORE NOW

Richard Emerson: The Hopfather

by Michael donaldson

The life and times of the man who built the modern beer scene in

New Zealand, an iconic brewer and businessman – Richard Emerson

of Emerson’s Brewery. Richard Emerson is one of our pre-eminent

brewers, a trailblazer who is often lauded as the godfather of craft beer

in New Zealand.

Born profoundly deaf in 1960s Dunedin, Emerson triumphed against

all odds to launch Emerson’s Brewery in 1992. He went on to create

a string of unique, award-winning beers, spark a cult-following,

attract global recognition, and become a millionaire – all from doing

something he loved. For Richard, it came after 20 years of unrelenting

commitment to the cause of good beer. They were two decades of

hard graft, physically and emotionally, of little or no pay, and of long

hours, during which he watched his father, mentor and friend die just

as the business began to stand on its own two feet. This is the story

of an adventurous boy who wouldn’t let anything get in the way of

what he wanted to do; a boy who fought for his place in the world and

refused to let anyone tell him ‘no’.

Johnathan Thurston: The

Autobiography

by Johnathan Thurston, with James Phelps

The bestselling autobiography of a league legend.

Johnathan Thurston is widely regarded as rugby league’s

greatest player. This autobiography will follow Thurston’s

journey from a Brisbane kid who was written off as too skinny,

too slow and too wild to play professionally, to his debut with

the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2003, to State of Origin star, to

Dally M and Clive Churchill Medal winner, and the fairytale

premierships.

Brothers in Black

The Long History of Brotherhood in New

Zealand rugby

by Jamie Wall

The All Blacks have had a brilliant run of brothers in the last

decade, with the Barretts, Whitelocks, Saveas and Franks,

but there have also been many more standouts throughout

New Zealand rugby history like the Meads, Whettons, Gears,

Bachops and Brownlies.

Jamie Wall writes insightfully, revealing fascinating stories and

providing analysis of some of the massive changes that have

occurred in New Zealand rugby over the years, while sharing

great yarns about the high-profile tests that live on in every

rugby fan’s memory.

R.A. Lawson - Victorian Architect &

designer of Dunedin

by Norman Ledgerwood

Following the discovery of gold in Otago, Dunedin quickly grew

to become the largest and richest city in New Zealand. Among

the architects who influenced the young city was the Scottish

architect, Robert Arthur Lawson.

Lawson became more than a leading architect of the day, he

was deeply involved in the management and affairs of his

beloved Presbyterian Church. Over a short period Lawson

played a major role in the growth of Dunedin — taking it

from a small township to a city of remarkable and enduring

Victorian architecture.

Lawson’s most significant works — First Presbyterian Church

of Otago, Knox Presbyterian Church, Larnach Castle, Otago

Boys’ High School, Dunedin Municipal Building — take

their place amongst the country’s most important historical

buildings and grace Dunedin to this day.

ROCKERS: Natalie Hutton (left), of Fendalton, and Minnie Robberds, of Sumner,

will head to the Smokefreerockquest finals this week.

Robberds makes rockquest finals

• By Jess Gibson

SUCCESS ON the Kiwi

music scene is on the

horizon for Sumner

resident Minnie Robberds.

The 18-year-old has been

selected to compete in

the Smokefreerockquest

national final in Auckland

on September 18.

She will perform alongside

Natalie Hutton, 18, in

the solo-duo act There’s a

Tuesday Between a Monday

and a Wednesday.

They will be up against

two other line-ups in the

solo/duo category.

Minnie is a student at

Christchurch Girls’ High

School and her love for

music came from listening

to her parent’s music growing

up.

“Artists like Patti Smith

and Neil Young,” she said.

Natalie, of Fendalton, is

the St Margaret’s College

co-head of arts and has

been singing and songwriting

since she was in

primary school.

They said they always

hoped they would get to

the rockquest final, but

they doubted their ability.

Just 10 high-school acts

across the country made it

through to the finals out of

more than 800 bands which

competed in this year’s

regional heats and finals.

At stake are prize

packages that include

$22,000 in Rockshop

vouchers, a $16,000 NZ

On Air recording, video

and promo package, and a

photo shoot and branding

‘Unsung hero’ gets award

• By Jess Gibson

THE HUNT will soon be on to

find Lyttelton’s next top dog.

Popular children’s television

show What Now is looking to

feature pet dogs while it films

in the port town on September

“UNSUNG HERO” Ian

McLennan has been

recognised for 12 years of

dedication to restoring Quail

Island.

The Redcliffs

environmentalist is the

Otamahua (Quail Island)

Ecological Restoration Trust

chairman and has taken part

in countless working bees on

the island.

Mr McLellan (left) received

a Keep Christchurch Beautiful

community award for his

efforts at a ceremony last week.

Planting, clearing weeds and

pest control are among the

tasks he takes part in when he

heads over with volunteers at

least twice a month.

The nomination, which was

Presenters will team up with

the children’s show Fanimals

for a dual broadcast and will

run prospective pet dogs

through their paces on site.

Parents can sign their

children and dogs up to go

along and be part of the

audience while the show is

submitted by a volunteer, said

Mr McLellan “works tirelessly

to restore this neglected and

abused island to its native

glory.”

He first got involved with

the trust when his brother was

chairman.

Said Mr McLellan: “The

main thing for me is the

almost complete loss of native

biodiversity over the last

couple of hundred years. It’s

a small effort to recreate what

was once there.”

During his time on the trust,

Mr McLellan said he has seen

all pests eradicated except for

mice.

“Making the island

predator-free has been a major

achievement for the trust.”

The trust is running its

annual planting programme

filmed and can register them to

participate in games.

On the day, Lyttelton

Primary School principal

Brendan Wright will also

get covered in gunge in the

segment ‘target ya teacher’.

Presenters were pre-filming

in Lyttelton on Thursday to

this month, which will see

3000 native trees planted over

four weekends. It will bring

the total number of trees

planted to more than 98,000.

At the ceremony 10 groups,

eight individuals and three life

members received awards.

Among the life membership

recipients was Governors Bay

resident John Thacker. He

has been involved with Keep

Christchurch Beautiful since

before its electronic records

began. He used to carry out

the litter count contract for the

city council, in tandem with

John Macaulay.

Mr Thacker is an active

member and will often put up

need to be more conscious of

proof that our targeted marketing,

our wide range of contacts and our

IT IS 3AM, it is dark, there is

suddenly by the sounds two old

men and women receive very

basic details of the reason they

They quickly dress and either

Some of the “now awake”

AS I SAID in my last column,

we’ve travelled to Italy so Vittoria

can meet the family. And what a

journey it’s been.

Before we even left, Vittoria

caused her parents a heap of stress

with her first ambulance trip to

the emergency department, starting

on a course of antibiotics for

pneumonia, setting us back a day

on doctor’s orders.

It sounds bad, and it wasn’t ideal,

but it was all okay apart from

unsettling our sleep patterns.

So we were lucky, our pre-dawn

flight on Saturday went swimmingly.

Vittoria was happy to nap,

draw or watch cartoons all the

way to Brisbane where we stayed a

night with my sister-in-law Sarah.

The only niggle was that she

leaked on me because her nappy

was askew but, like for most parents

I think, that’s a non-event.

It looked like either the antibiotics

or time were working a treat

flurry of emotions from initial

annoyance to having been

woken, then quickly followed by

concerned thoughts about who

is in trouble and what has happened.

Is it a fire, has someone

had a heart attack, have trees

blown over onto power lines

causing fire and power outage,

has the community received an

upgraded warning of tsunami,

or has some tired driver driven

off the road and crashed?

Diamond Harbour has a magnificent

bunch of volunteer firefighters

who are highly trained,

multi-skilled and committed to

providing the very best support

in all sorts of emergencies to this

community – their people.

Their families sit at home and

worry about their firefighting

partner, or family members and

on Vittoria, so we were quietly

confident going into the 14-hour

leg to Dubai on Sunday night.

And again, it went pretty good.

Fourteen uneventful hours.

Arriving in Dubai we were all

tired, dishevelled, probably smelly

and definitely over trying to sleep

in an aircraft seat with a fidgety

toddler. Between us and relaxation,

were only four hours in an

airport and a six-hour flight. Easy

right? Spoiler alert – no.

Our luck ran out 20 minutes before

boarding started for our flight

to Venice when Vittoria vomited

all over the floor in the middle

of a packed terminal. And a little

on my shirt and shoes. Honestly,

what’s the protocol for that?

I just floundered in surprise for

a bit until Laura went into nurse

mode and sent me off to clean

Vittoria up while she “dealt with

it” in the splash zone.

Once we were as “fresh” as

possible and a suddenly exhausted

toddler crying in my arms, we

made our way to the gate where

we were told we could get Vittoria

checked up for free at the airport

clinic and wouldn’t miss our

flight.

However, once the “ambulance”

arrives (literally a push trolley)

we were told that a full check at

volunteer fire brigades in New

Zealand and around 49 are

trained and equipped for “medical

first response”, which in our

brigade accounts for about 60

per cent of our “calls for service.”

Even delivering babies is in our

repertoire.

They say variety is the spice

of life, so it is in the brigade,

we have been to fires caused by

swans flying into high voltage

cables at night, burning possums

falling into and setting alight to

hedges, cats up trees, sheep in

the clinic might make us miss our

flight – great.

With all the vitals coming back

healthy, and Vittoria totally out to

it asleep, I was offered a difficult

choice; do further checks and

miss the flight or sign a waiver

saying “refused treatment” and

that if it gets worse it’s all on you.

Although I was confident to

sign away and just get to the flight

so we could be done with it, I felt

terrible anyway. So for three long

and stressful hours of the last flight

we thought of all the worst things

it could be – dehydration, gastro,

some sort of never-wake-up

disease.

And what does Vittoria do when

she finally wakes up? Sits up, laughs

and becomes the flight staff’s

darling by running laps around the

plane with a huge grin on her face

for the duration of the flight.

Anyway, we’re in Italy now and

ready for family time.

Many readers will be aware

Our rural areas cause us

concern as our existing response

We have, with the help of major

supporters, including James

raised nearly $45,000 towards a

We have a quite bit more to

raise so any help would be appreciated,

Tutors’ commitment brings

results for students

A genuine commitment to helping

students achieve in education and concern

for what happens to them are what brings

the results for children tutored at Kip

McGrath Ferrymead, says franchise owner

Helen Hudson.

“As they progress through the sessions we

see them blossom and grow in confidence

with their learning and that’s so rewarding,”

Helen says.

The other key factors that set Kip McGrath

apart and contribute to students’ success are

that all tutors have to be qualified teachers,

and that students have the same tutor every

time they attend, Helen says.

“This allows the tutors to build a rapport

with their students. They work on an

individualised programme within a small

group of three to five students.”

Communication with parents is another

important aspect, Helen

points out.

“We have to be meeting

the needs of the children

as the parents see it, as well

as what we see is needed.”

Kip McGrath Ferrymead

has six tutors offering

students from Year 1-13

tutoring in maths and

English – covering a broad

spectrum of spelling,

writing and reading, with

the tutors fully conversant

with NCEA requirements.

Chemistry, Physics

and Biology along with

English and Maths tutoring is

available for Year 11, 12 and

13 students.

“With the senior students

we work alongside them, but

they are really the leader of

the lesson, which is tailormade

to their needs,” Helen

says.

There is also a focus on

children with learning

difficulties, such as dyslexia,

and for accelerant students,

who need extra challenges.

Each tutoring session lasts

one hour 20 minutes, with

about six different activities

included each time. Sessions are run

outside school hours, either before or after

school, with most students attending once

a week.

“We also offer one-on-one tutoring for

adult students, who may need to improve

their English or maths skills for work they

want to apply for.”

There are several funding subsidies

available for Kip McGrath tutoring.

Kip McGrath Ferrymead franchise owner Helen

Hudson helping a student

Registered Ngai Tahu members receive

some funding, as do registered members

of the Rotorua-based Tauhara No. 2 Trust.

Fletchers also provide funding subsidies for

family members of their employees.

Free assessments are offered, and students

can enroll at any time of the year.

compete in the premier reserve

grade would have needed a team

in the premier competition from

next season.

However, this requirement

was overturned last week at a

meeting between all 16 metro

sub-union clubs. The three clubs

which don’t have a team in the

premier competition will now

still be able to compete in the

reserve grade.

All of the metro sub-union

clubs voted in favour of no

changes being made to the teams

currently competing in the

premier reserve grade.

“The clubs were given some

material by the metro committee

to talk to their boards about and

come back with their boards’

feelings based on the material

we’d given them, which they

did,” said metro sub-union

committee chairman Brent

Goldsmid.

“It was basically unanimous

that given the player number

difficulties the sport faces,

to restrict teams from the

competition would make no

Bid to promote

squash in Sumner

THE SUMNER Tennis and

Squash Club wants to prevent

squash from fading as a sport.

The club will host the

Canterbury masters and

under-23 squash tournaments on

Saturday and Sunday as part of

an effort to promote the game in

the region.

Said president Phil Loughnan:

“Hopefully this will be the

first of many, with the club

reintroducing a Sumner open

next year.”

“Squash nationally is a fading

game, but it’s a great game the

club is committed to growing,”

Mr Loughnan said.

STILL ALIVE: Lyttelton will continue to compete in the metro premier reserve competition after

a decision to exclude them, Suburbs and Otautahi was overturned last week.

He said it will be an

opportunity to showcase the

club’s rejuvenated facilities,

which are “arguably the best in

Christchurch.”

The club on Heberden Ave

has spent more than $1 million

renovating the squash and tennis

courts and associated facilities,

which were reopened late last

year.

“The courts have new floors

and lighting and have been

heavily insulated to give excellent

playing conditions,” he said.

sense. The environment over the

last three years has changed . . .

three years ago, it was probably

the right decision, now it’s not

and we’re happy to change that.”

Lyttelton club president

SPORT

Clinton Norris said he was

confident going into the meeting

about the future of the three

clubs, but was surprised by the

amount of support for the clubs

to continue competing in the

reserve competition.

“To listen to what the clubs

had to say was overwhelming. It

means we can all work together

and make something better for

our local rugby,” said Norris.

The decision, which would

have ruled Lyttelton, Otautahi

and Suburbs out of the premier

reserve grade, came to light

recently, with vocal support for

it to be overturned on social

media.

“We got up two months ago

and just spilt the beans about

what effect it would have on our

clubs and how hard it would

be. No one had thought about a

pathway and then we asked for a

full review,” said Norris.

Lyttelton currently have two

senior teams and eight junior

teams. Suburbs have two senior,

a colts, a women’s and seven

junior teams. Otautahi have two

senior and four junior teams.

Experienced new coach appointed

THE REDCLIFFS Tennis Club

has appointed an internationally

experienced new head coach.

Originally from Canterbury,

Alan Adair has been coaching

at a high level in Germany

for many years, but recently

returned to Christchurch with

his family.

He replaces Jack Tiller, who

has taken up a role in Ashburton

as head coach of the Mid-

Canterbury region. Adair brings

a great deal of expertise to the

club and can coach at all levels

– from absolute beginners to

professionals.

His goal is to teach tactically

intelligent tennis, which

suits each player’s individual

strengths and weaknesses.

The former junior New

Zealand age group champion

has previously been the

Southland regional coach and

also coaches at the Kaiapoi and

Amberley clubs.

TACTICAL:

Alan

Adair has

replaced

Jack Tiller

as Redcliffs

Tennis Club

head coach.

Adair will be available to

meet potential new members at

the ‘love tennis’ open day from

1-4pm on September 7 and 8 at

the Redcliffs club.

High build quality for new Toyota RAV4

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

IT HAS TO be said – Toyota has

really upped the ante with its new

RAV4.

I remember writing about the

interior of the previous generation

model, referencing the hard plastic

trim and low grade materials

which formed the cockpit.

That has all changed, the new

RAV4 is a quantum leap, premium

linings have been used,

soft-touch surfaces have been

included, and the layout of the

controls is comprehensive but

simplistic to understand.

All this from a model which

isn’t graded as high-specification.

This evaluation surrounds the

GXL model which still gets cloth

seat trim – yet I believe these are

the seats for Christchurch. Every

morning the RAV4 was in my

care the temperature was below

0 deg C and freezing. It was nice

to get into the relative warmth of

cloth as opposed to leather.

The 2019 RAV4 lands in eight

variants. I evaluated the rangetopping

hybrid in July, and

reported that it was the most

sensible model in the series. However,

there are petrol-only models

for those who don’t want to go

down the hybrid road. There are

three models with 2-litre engines

driving through the front wheels

only, and two 2.5-litre all-wheeldrive

variants – the GXL and

Adventure.

The GXL 4WD lands at $41,990

($48,990 Adventure), which to

me represents good buying and,

as my introduction suggested, it

is now a car which borders on the

luxury car class such is its build

quality and drive comfort.

A lot of the latter has to do with

a brand new platform, the RAV4

is totally fresh from the ground

up, and it’s something Toyota has

put a big effort into. Well, when

the car you are marketing sits

in the one of the busiest market

segments, then it has to be good

to compete.

Yes, the mid-size sport utility

market is crowded, but the RAV4

has a healthy reputation and solid

grounding.

Under the bonnet sits a revised

version of the four-cylinder

2487cc engine that has served

Toyota well for several years.

While its basic construction

hasn’t changed a lot, it has been

refined for higher power outputs

and greater efficiency. Toyota rate

it with 152kW and 243Nm, both

outputs peaky at 6600rpm and

4000-5000rpm respectively.

TOYOTA RAV4 GXL: Significant off-road capability.

That matters little, the specific to be honest, I felt it a little unnecessary,

but it’s there for when

outputs are high enough to provide

solid performance, an 8.5sec maximum performance is needed

comfort. Sure, at almost 1.7m tall

the body does have some gravitational

movement, but it is well

arrested and handling balance is

unaffected.

Bear in mind too, the fourwheel-drive

RAV has several offroad

drive modes which provide

the model with serious off-road

potential.

As much as I enjoyed the GXL’s

traditional driveline, I’m sticking

by my comment that the hybrid

is the pick of the range and would

certainly be my choice.

Yet, I’m fully aware that RAV4

buyers want just that little point

of difference to other SUV owners

and, I guess, that’s what Toyota

was thinking of when it included

an Adventure model into the

range. It has body kits and an

interior colour contrasts which

are vivid and striking.

I’m due to evaluate it soon and

from what I’m hearing it is the

go-to model. Just as well, then,

Toyota has a RAV4 for all tastes.

‘Feedback I get from clients is that they never would

have seen & experienced as much in a destination

if they had been free wheeling it themselves – the Tour

Directors really add value and bring a destination alive and save you time

and energy figuring out the good spots! Not to mention the cost of parking’.

‘From the touring I have done there was no way I

could put together an itinerary & price that offered

better value than a coach tour. When you consider you

have all of your accommodation, transport, key sightseeing and sometimes

special dining experiences all included – it’s unbeatable’!
