They ring to confirm the pickup time and guarantee they’ll try to be on time or always ring if they are held up. Their new cars are maintained to exacting standards and therefore reliable too.

4. FRIENDLY & PERSONAL –  Drivers choose the business because they love being around people and the regular clients love knowing exactly who will be driving them. They often hear, ‘it’s like driving with a friend’.

5. COST EFFECTIVE FOR A SUPERIOR SERVICE – They are competitively priced and can pre-quote so you will always know ahead of time exactly what the price will be.They accept Total Mobility cards/vouchers in most regions across New Zealand, making them even more affordable, and have a great Loyalty Card system to reward you.

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the I Love Paris concert. It was one of the best ever. The beautiful back drop and the equally beautiful songs and music, made it feel as if I was right there in Paris.

~ Kathleen, Nelson

I knew all the words of all the songs - a fabulous program and each performer was perfect in their individual songs and the ensembles were beautiful with great endings! A standing ovation at the end with cheering and clapping was testament to everyone’s enjoyment. It is certainly up there with the best and everyone wore a huge smile as they left! THANK YOU ALL for brightening our lives!!

~ Dot, Hastings

I just wanted to pass on my congratulations on today’s show. I’m so pleased I attended, as was my neighbour, who was entranced. This was everything such occasions should be: heartfelt, poignant, funny, inspiring, uproarious, festive ... immensely satisfying. Please pass on my plaudits to everyone.

~ Lindsay, Kapiti

We laughed, sang, cried and clapped our hands sore, it truly was that good a performance. Our congratulations and thanks to all who work so hard to bring these concerts together and the performers who give their all to entertain us so well.

~ Judi and Graham

Thank you for all the wonderful concerts, the happiness they give us and for being such friendly good people.

~ Pam, Rotorua

We thoroughly enjoyed the superb concert today in Invercargill. So honest and moving. Very professional. Our first time. We look forward to becoming regulars.

~ Wendy Joy, Invercargill

Just must tell you .... I went to the concert this morning. Came home on such a high I couldn’t work! What a morning. How lucky we are. A thousand thanks to all of you there. Operatunity is playing such a big part in my life’s joys.

~ Julie

Another wonderful concert by Operatunity – enjoyed every minute of it – great background scenery on stage, lovely playing by Paul, outstanding singing by all and lots of comedy from Karl and Alex. Looking forward to It’s Rainin Men! Cheers.

~ Heather H, Phantom to Les Mis Concert, 2017

Wow, what a superb concert this morning! What fabulous and varied costumes! It was an absolute blast and looked to be a full house!
Thank you for these amazing concerts. They are so very good for the soul and such fun!

~ Dot, From Phantom to Les Mis 2017

My sister and I attended today's concert in Hastings. Like the last concert it was absolutely fabulous. Congratulations to you and John for finding all these wonderfully talented artists to bring so much enjoyment and happiness to we senior citizens.

~ Shona C, Phantom to Les Mis Concert, 2017

Thankyou for all the boys of It's Raining' Men. I really enjoyed the concert I didn't want it to stop so awesome, thankyou again.

~ Alison B, Rainin' Men Concert, 2017

What a wonderful, exciting concert I attended in Mosgiel this morning/early afternoon. The whole audience was abuzz and enjoyed singing along, clapping and even attempting their versions of the twist! Coronation Hall was packed with Karl having to bring in more chairs to accommodate the large number of people. Karl was very impressive carrying a number of chairs up the steps to the back of the Theatre.
Well done to all presenters!

~ Heather, Proms Concert 2017

Another wonderful concert today at the Fabulous 50’s concert, full of fun and laughter with everyone singing and clapping and dancing. The venue was packed with very happy people living for two hours in the past. I felt young and free amidst all that great music again.

~ Dot, Fabulous 50's Concert 2017

Huge thanks for another excellent and fun filled concert today with all six performers going the extra mile. You make us laugh and sing and lift our spirits. Everyone was smiling afterwards and you do more for our health than any medication!

~ Dot D, Christmas Concert 2017

My wife, Mavis, and myself yesterday (Fri. 27/10/2017) attended your ‘Fabulous 50’s’ show at the New Plymouth venue and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you! All the performers were brilliant and the song selection was great. Lots of reminiscing done.

~ Wayne & Mavis, New Plymouth, 2017

We always enjoy our drive through to Wanganui on Operatunity days and love our wonderful time listening to all the magical music and of course the great jokes that Sue remembers. We have just been down on the Southern Lakes and Fiords tour with Sue and thoroughly loved every minute with the group.Thank them all for sharing those days with us.

~ Don & Denise, Hunterville, 2017

Thanks for bringing us world class shows 8 times a year! Such a highlight in our lives. May you have a blessed Christmas and may 2018 be your best year ever!

~ Estelle L, 2017

I always leave feeling on 'cloud 9'. I look forward to 2018 for the wonderful concerts and the two trips I am booked on later in the year.

~ June M, 2017

Thank you for all the hard work you do to bring us all such pleasure each year. Long live Operatunity!

~ Jean J, 2017

Wow another great concert, you sure can pull them out of the bag. The musical performance was wonderful as usual, you are all so talented. We nearly cried laughing at the Irish Dancing!

~ Diane & Susan, Irish Concert 2018

I was entranced and delighted by talented Jess, the magic she shares with the audience is truly wonderful. Then we come to Riverdance, Operatunity style. Bryony was so exciting, the 2 men with their “high kicks” were brilliant and then, something I will always recall and chuckle at, Susan’s outrageous and courageous appearance to join the dance. You once again gave us another fabulous concert.

~ Colleen B, Irish Concert 2018

Congratulations to all on a truly wonderful concert the most entertaining I have seen in 15 years of visits. The baptism of fire of Bryony was great, she is a wonderful addition to the team. The staging and humour were a hilarious treat especially the alligator consuming Donald Trump and the Irish joke as usual.

~ Ron H, Irish Concert 2018

Still remembering the joy the Irish concert gave to the people who were there on Friday, had all the components of an 'Irish Do'; funny, moving and so well presented by all the artists.

~ Dorreen, Irish Concert 2018

I have seen Luck of the Irish today and what a great show! Not only did they entertain us with a wonderful program but they seemed to enjoy themselves as well. Another good launch of the new years concert series.

~ Beryl D, Irish Concert 2018

I have been to many of your wonderful daytime concerts but feel I must congratulate the 3 gentleman in today's show. They were superb. Also a great band. Thank you for all the pleasure you give to us and a big thank you to all your talented performers.

~ Pauline B, Rat Pack Concert 2018

Loved the Rat Pack Concert and the tap dancing! All the artists were excellent but we particularly loved Rutene Spooner who has such a beautiful voice. He also amazed us with his balancing on his toes when tap dancing! Astonishing!

~ Sue P, Rat Pack Concert 2018

The programme was great, the backdrop was marvelous, the concert was exceptional. Really, really great show. Congratulations and thank you very much.

~ T Broughton, Irish Concert 2018

I would like to mention the most talented pianists Penny, she deserved a standing ovation for today’s show (in fact they all did!)

~ Jane M, Because You ASKED For It 2018

Saw this show in Invercargill and it was amazing, well done to you all and thanks for lifting people's spirits, love you all.

~ Jacqueline D, Because You ASKED For It 2018

This was such a slick, sensational concert and great value for the money. Gave me goosebumps!

~ Margaret P, Because You ASKED For It 2018

Great concert Operatunity, with a very special selection of favourite songs.

~ Rosemary P, Because You ASKED For It 2018

Another fantastic concert. Fully booked Mosgiel show. Thank you all for my "laughter therapy.”

~ Margeret, Shake, Rattle & Roll 2018

The Mosgiel performance was outstanding, great music, colourful and fun.

~ Maureen C, Shake, Rattle & Roll 2018

This is a terrific show, saw this last Thursday in Invercargill, thanks Bonnie, Karl, Suzanne and Pat plus the band, loved every minute.

~ Jacqueline D, Shake, Rattle & Roll 2018

Shake, Rattle & Roll is, in our opinion, an absolutely outstanding Concert & clearly the most complete Operatunity Show that we have been to.
A wonderful ensemble of entertainers & musicians had the audience captivated from opening to close with a beautiful mix of vocal’s, instrumental’s & humour.

Congratulations to all involved.

~ Cheryl & Noel B, Shake, Rattle & Roll 2018

Just saw today's concert TENNESSEE WALTZ at Hamilton. Often not a great fan of country and western but today's programme almost converted me. So polished with talented singers and musicians! Very professional! Marian Burns and Karl Perigo fantastic!

~ Anne G, Tennessee Waltz 2018

I saw this show at Botany, and what a superb concert it was! Every performer was excellent, every performance was excellent. We have some incredible talent in this little country, and Operatunity really put it on with Tennessee Waltz concert. I loved every minute, every song.

~ Diana F, Tennessee Waltz 2018

Amazing show - we saw it at Papakura last Thursday with friends and the general comments were.....’Best show so far this year’!

~ Jennifer E, Tennessee Waltz 2018

What a FABULOUS concert!! As a dedicated Operatunity Fan, I've been to many Operatunity concerts in Gisborne and each time I think 'OH THIS IS THE BEST'! Then guess what - another wonderful, fun one. Operatunity keeps bringing us such talented entertainers. Grant Winterburn - oh my gosh, fantastic. The whole cast were just amazing. THANK YOU ALL. I will be out encouraging more to come and fill the seats.

~ Molly P, Tennessee Waltz 2018
