Phyl and I would like to express our appreciation for making our long awaited holiday in celebration of our fortieth wedding anniversary something really special and very memorable.
When planning our trip to South Australia and the Barossa and Clare Valleys I needed to book a car to hire. Of course there are plenty of ordinary car hire companies who hire plenty of ordinary cars which although practical and economical are bland and not the sort of thing to invoke stirring memories.
Being car nuts and convertible devotees I was hoping that we could hire something out of the ordinary but although available through specialists they were all ridiculously expensive.
When I found your site after a lot of searching I couldn't believe my eyes.
To be able to hire such special vehicles at an affordable price is amazing and to have the whole process made so easy by yourself created a relaxing and worry free start enabling us to concentrate on sampling the food, wine and fantastic scenery.
The well maintained Porsche ran like clockwork and was an amazing vehicle to drive with the top down at every possible occasion. But I loved the note of the motor that can be appreciated so much more with the auto roof up on the odd occasion when it rained.
We gorged ourselves on the magnificent sunny days going topless cruising along the sweeping roads of the Adelaide Hills and the wonderful countryside around Clare and the Barossa wine growing regions. And of course the Porsche was ideal for visits to Handorf, the National Motor Museum in Birdwood and a Collingrove Hill Climb event. (as spectators)
A very unique experience created by a very unique and special family business that has given us a perfect holiday that will be long remembered.
A very heartfelt thank you from both of us,
Phyl and Andrew
From Mark, who was over for a visit with his son-
"My son and I had a great time in the MGB and the Alfa Spyder - first time we'd driven either one. So much fun and service back-up was excellent. Looking forward to the next time we are over to try one of the others. Great value for the experience"
Thanks Mark, we are looking forward to seeing you again:)
When I met John at the Airport to hand over the Alfa, he told me he had owned a couple of Alfas as a younger man but sold the last one before he got married. When I collected the car at the end of his week, he said he loved it so much he's made an offer on one! And he sent this feedback-
Hi Phil, thanks again for all your wonderful care and attention. And for your lovely Alfa Romeo! The Alfa brought back that true driving joy. We had a great week with the top-down. We recommend AHT to anyone who wants a fantastic driving experience.
Good luck with the offer John:)
Hazirah from Kuala Lumpur decided to visit Adelaide for a weekend-we'll let her tell the story- the-travelling-little-girl.blogspot.com
I just wanted to say a big Thank You!!
The porsche was a fantastic surprise for my Step Dad's 65th birthday!
Your son (Will) looked after us wonderfully and the car was perfect, really made for a special 24 hours.
I can't recommend your service highly enough and the professional way in which you operate and communicate.
With Winter here the weather can be an issue for our customers-we have a Rain Check policy, so that customers can reschedule if the weather looks like being awful on the day. Although for some, driving a soft top, with the roof closed, and the sound of rain pattering down is just fine. We try to keep our customers informed, as sometimes the weather in the Hills is quite different than down on the Adelaide Plain. And here's a note from a customer who was worried about some dicey weather forecasts-as it turned out the weather was mostly fine for their weekend with the Porsche-
I wanted to let you know how much my wife and I enjoyed the experience of the Porsche over the weekend.
Your service and follow-up to emails in the lead-up was faultless, with the questionable weather playing on our minds.
An easy transaction on the day and overall an experience we treasured.
Its great family businesses like yours that make me want to do it all again.
Many thanks for the easy, no-fuss hire of the Porsche on Thursday. My girlfriend and I had a great time cruising around with the top down! The car is well kept and drives beautifully both in the city and through the the hills - cruising around was an absolute pleasure.
I'll definitely be in touch again soon.
Thanks to Tanya McKew, who hired our BMW Z-3 as a surprise for her Mum's 70th birthday, and sent us the following lovely note--
Just wanted to say a huge thanks for the joy your car brought mum…..she had a ball and it remained a surprise for her until we arrived at your driveway when she saw the sign by the road.
And just to reinforce how small Adelaide is, as Sam may have told you, it turns out there is a connection between you guys, the Geers’ and my Mum’s partner’s family (Bamford/Parkin)….through Basket Range Primary School…..
Anyway, thanks again for the opportunity of using your car.
When Brad returned the Mazda MX-5 this morning he said "Thanks for a great weekend! My partner and I are off the Canberra next weekend to look at an MX-5 to buy!"
I would like to thank you for last weekend. Damien and I had a wonderful time in the Porsche Boxster and found the experience well organised, with excellent service and very good value.
The car was clean and in great condition and we thoroughly enjoyed driving it around the hills and city. I would recommend this to anyone, it was fantastic.
