Just had to let you know how great it was having this on our recent trip to the South Island.  The Music - The Guide and the Commentary of the Island History and Place to Visit.  Could not have done without it.  Made a very relaxing drive without the worry of getting lost.  Amazing Could not have done without it. Thanks heaps Greg & Gail Buckingham, Qld, Australia

Would like to thank you for the great commentary and information contained in our Kruse GPS for our holiday in March.  We really enjoyed the information, music and commentary. Loretta Neill, Australia

Hi there, just returned from NZ and so pleased we hired the Kruse GPS + information system for our self-drive.  Very useful and informative, providing an information insight into New Zealand's history, culture, wildlife and points of interest along the driven route.  Not sure how it was selected but the music played after the commentary had ended was perfect for us.  Great value as an additional item for our holiday. Thanks David Taylor, Australia

While touring around New Zealand, which has to be one of the loveliest countries every, my husband and I hired a Kruse GPS and what a delight it was.  We really enjoyed hearing the history of the places we were seeing, and loved the legends and the opportunity of hearing how the place names should be pronounced.  So, thank you to the people of Kruse for putting together this comprehensive and informative package.  We will and have been recommending it to everyone we know.  Regards Jacqui and Peter Carne, Australia

Hi Krusers!!  We love love loved our tour guide.  The stories were fantastic, the information fascinating and it added such a fabulous layer to our trip.  We even had a last night quiz with the kids on everything they'd learnt!!! Too funny.  And we loved the range of background music.  Something for everyone and great for singing along.  Thank you soooooo much and best wishes with your company mission - it is gold :) Alicia Kemp, Ausutralia

What a fantastic 2 week drive through NZ made so much more interesting with our Kruse commentary on board, no commercial laden radio with great comments and stories by Jonathan and co. Geoff & Sylvia, Australia

My wife & I recently hired one of your GPS Travel Guides whilst on holidays in New Zealand.  We consider it to be one of the best holiday investments we made.  The "Kruse" made our holidays so much more enjoyable.  Your commentary was very informative.  We certainly would have no hesitation in recommending your travel guide to any of our  friends contemplating a holiday in New Zealand.  Once again many thanks.  Mary & Philippe Dodin 

Thank you for your amazing information as we travelled around the South Island.  We would certainly recommend to others who are doing a NZ self drive holiday to use a Kruse.  Thanks again, Robyn & Jeff Davis, Berkeley, Australia

Thank you for Kruse.  It was very enjoyable and interesting.  It definately added to our holiday! Regards Deb & Jess Grams

Thank you for providing an excellent informative system.  We will recommend it to our aussie friends.  Regards Colleen & George Miller, Bundaberg, Australia

I took the new Kruse GPS Travel Guide away for the weekend to trial this.  Being 'technology challenged' I was a little apprehensive if I could work this system.  My fears were unfounded.  The system was very easy to start and within a few minutes we had the GPS set for Westport and the commentary and music set to run also.  The commentary was extremely informative and interesting. In fact it was so interesting that I just wanted to keep driving around NZ to hear more about the areas we were travelling through!!  The music was good and the GPS got us to our destination.  I believe this system would be a great attribute for our clients travelling around NZ.  Cheers Tracey Thomson, Contact Centre Manager, Pacific Horizon

Just a quick note to thank you for your service and to say that in all our years of self drive holidays in Australia and around the world we have never had such a valuable resource as your Kruse audio travelguide. It made our trip far more interesting and we stopped at many places that we would certainly have missed without its help. The Maori legends were fascinating and your choice of music was perfect for those in-between times. Thank you and keep up the good work. David & Kate Hayne, Camberwell, Victoria, Australia

Thank you for providing the soundtrack to our holiday. We found the information and commentary plus maori legends really entertaining and invaluable . We would not be without the Kruse - Philip & Trish Martin, Australia

Kruse was an absolute \'must\' and made our trip so much more enjoyable - Linda Austin, Australia

Thank you for such an informative history of New Zealand. We were able to see more and understand more of your beautiful country. We have already recommended your system to other travellers - David & Gail Padgett, Australia

Your system is superb and we recommend it to everyone who comes to NZ, just wondering if you did systems in Australia? - Ryan Ward, Australia

Thank you for the opportunity to use Kruse. What a wonderful idea this is. - Joy Young, Australia

My wife and I have just returned from 3 weeks touring NZ. A wonderful place and a fantastic holiday but our trip would not have been anywhere near as enjoyable without the Kruse. We loved it. We congratulate you on a wonderful and most professional product. I am sure we know more about NZ than many New Zealanders. I must say I do not understand why KEA does not offer your unit. I was lucky enough to read about it before we booked the holiday. Thanks again, Rob Payne

We are extremely glad that we chose to use the Kruse system in our travels. The quality of the commentary was outstanding and we all looked forward to the next announcement coming up! Our trip was wonderful, but this innovative system made it even more outstanding. Thanks again. The Brakel Family

Our two children were absolutely fascinated by the Maori folklore; they are still raving about the Lake Wakitipu "tanifa". We will certainly recommend "Kruse" to our Travel Agent or friends travelling to NZ in the future. Congratulations on a fantastic innovation! We felt it was money very well spent. Feel free to use our endorsement in any future promotional material! Tim Atherton, NSW Australia

We just wanted to let you know how good these two English visitors found the Kruse commentary. We certainly saw things we might have missed, and the Maori legends were very interesting. We\'re glad we took our travel agents advice on hiring the Kruse. Many thanks. Jacqueline Foster

We learned a lot more about NZ than we would from guidebooks, and we particularly liked the stories taken from Maori legend. We will be recommending your system to our local travel agent who put together our trip, and to friends who may be visiting NZ. We just wanted to thank you for helping to make our holiday that bit more special. Kind Regards, Mike and Doreen Cohen - Sussex, England

Just wanted to add our thanks to the many I am sure you have already received for making our wonderful New Zealand holiday an even greater one. The Kruse system was fantastic, informative and a delight to listen to. I am sure we know more about New Zealand than most NZ’ers. We travelled over 5000 kms in 21 days and became very attached to Jonathan Kruse. We were even sad to hear him farewell us at Christchurch airport. Once again thank you for a marvelous experience. We will certainly be telling all our friends and travel agent about this great device. Regards Warwick Rae

"We have just returned from a month’s holiday where we had the Kruse commentary system. We just wanted to thank you for "joining us" on our trip and we all (including 2 young children) looked forward each day to hearing your commentary and learning about the places we were visiting and the history and the legends surrounding the various districts in NZ. NZ is a magical place to visit and each day driving offered new and spectacular scenery and things to do. Your system added a great deal of pleasure to out trip and we felt like we had "one up" on all the coach tours that rolled endlessly down the highway. Thank you again for providing such a tremendous service and we were all envious of the joy you must have had putting it all together."
John Hiscox, Group General Manager, Plaza Hotels (Asia Pacific) Pty Ltd

 Dear Kruse Team,
Wow! Thanks for making our holiday fantastic. The system was great.

Travelling with 4 children between 5 and 15 is never easy, but the kids loved the stories and information, they even handled the music! When people ask how our holiday was I let them know it was our best yet, as it was like having our own tour guide. You certainly get more out of the country by knowing its history... I knew you had it nailed when we were passing thru the ‘red tussock grass’ area and I turned to Steve and said "I wonder why this is so different with all that tussocky grass?” sooner had the words passed my lips than you said..."If you are wondering about the grassy hills...etc etc.(or words to that effect) It cracked us all up!

It was the best $70 we spent on the trip, we are planning on returning to finish the south island and do the north. Thanks again,
Steve, Deb, John, Liz, Emma and Ella  HAMBLETON. Brisbane Australia

 "We just wanted to send our thanks. Your Kruse system was very imaginative and certainly made our tour through beautiful New Zealand so much more enjoyable"

 "We have recently got back from a month\'s honeymoon in NZ, which we spent driving around in a Maui campervan. We had such a good time, but what made it really special was the fabulous commentary from Kruse, all along our route."
Alie Plumstead - London  SW1Y 6QU

 "We really enjoyed our Kruse System. Your commentary was terrific and it made much of our trip come alive. We shall heartily recommend it to other friends."
Faith Andrews Bedford – USA

 "Mr Kruse & Co. What a fantastic product! Like having your own personal guide in the back seat. Well done !!!"
K & M Sweeney, Perth, Western Australia

 "We recently hired the Kruse system from you to assist with our tour of the North Island of New Zealand. We would like to let you know that we found it very interesting and informative. We also enjoyed the Maori legends as well. Thank you for this service, we will be recommending it to anyone else we know of travelling to New Zealand."
L B, Mt Gambier, Australia

 "To Mr Jonathan & Neil Kruse,
Respected Sirs,
What an excellent system, you have come out with. We had so much pleasure listening to your information given to us during our trip. It was so pleasurable, informative and we totally agree, as promised that it acts as apersonal guide. Thank you very much, you made our first trip to New Zealand very enjoyable, we really want to see your exciting country again and again and if God has it, we will visit you in the near future. Thank you again."
Pankaj Saigal, India

"I have just returned from a three week tour around New Zealand in a rental car and I had one of your commentary systems. I had to contact you to tell you that I think your system is excellent and it made my trip much more enjoyable. I saw many interesting things because the commentary advised me that they were there. Thank you for producing such a useful system."
A Barter, USA
