In the midst of our vacation, we as a group of friends wanted to do something different and The Alpaca Place provided us that. The entire experience was refreshing and our kids learned a new word, Alpaca. Thank you, great work guys.

We enjoyed welcoming your group to our farm and seeing you having fun with our alpacas. Thanks so much for taking the time to review your time with us, we really appreciate your comments as, I'm sure, the public will as well.

Very educational Liz passed on her vast knowledge of the history of Alpacas in their original countries and importation into NZ. We enjoyed spending time with the animals, feeding them, taking them for a walk and watching their interaction.
