New Zealand’s South Island has some of the world’s most amazing scenery, but sometimes even that is not enough.
“Being on the South Island we travel a fair distance,” said Jeremy Crichton who, with his wife Belinda, owns and operates Limousine South.
“But after so many kilometres over a number of days, you can develop a sense of claustrophobia no matter how nice the vehicle.
“That’s why our new Sprinters have the high roof. It’s a great option for providing customers with a feeling of space,” he said.
Limousine South, based in Queenstown, has been in business for 15 years providing high quality tourism experiences for small groups.
The company boasts a versatile modern fleet of limousine sedans, luxury people-movers and small tour coaches. It can also offer expert, locally-based driver-guides who speak English, Spanish, French and Portuguese.
Its latest vehicles are two Mercedes-Benz Sprinters – one designed to carry 11 passengers, the other 15. Another 11 seater is currently on order.
“The Sprinters set a benchmark in quality and reliability,” Jeremy said.
“After we completely kit up the interior we end up with an amazing vehicle.”
Jeremy has noticed that in the past five or six years, more importance is being put on the quality of the vehicles that tourism operators run.
“The badge has become a more important consideration, particularly for the Asian tourism market it’s a prerequisite,” Jeremy said.
But of course it’s pointless having a nice badge, if the machinery is not up to the task.
“Our vehicles do anything from 40,000 to 50,000 kilometres a year so we really need reliability,” Jeremy said. “And these Sprinters certainly deliver that.”
