Hiya Joyce, we had a great time and we cannot fault any part of the experience. You even kept the rain away. The staff had a terrific time and I believe we will be back again for our mid year event.

2 hour public session

09-03-2016 by Belinda Mikaelian

Hi Joyce! Just a quick feedback from this weekend. I had initially paid for 6 kids to play lasertag with you on Saturday afternoon at Maitland Gaol. I called to include a last minute extra (have no idea how we got an extra!). The service from you and your team from the start to finish was excellent. The boys loved the event, wished it could have gone longer, and I think we have converted one young boy who had never been before. They all returned super happy with the night. Once again, we received a a gift voucher for my son to play again. We will join him next time as we parents also love playing lasertag. That is a lovely surprise for the Birthday Boy to get a free game and we appreciate it greatly. I can’t offer any suggestions for improvement, we really love every experience we have had with you, and will return! Kindly, Belinda Mikaelian.

Extreme Event

09-03-2016 by Carol Cairney

Hi Joyce Daniel loves it. I told him about the email saying it was on and he said “great I’m going to it!” He invited some mates and when I questioned who was going he said ‘ I don’t care if no one else turns up, I’ll go on my own” That’s how much he enjoys being there. Great venue, great game, great people, keep up the good work! Pizza a bonus! Carol Cairney

5 star swim teaching!

18-07-2016 by Madeleine

Deanos nemos is perfect for us! Dean fits in with our busy schedule and has been so helpful with my nephews swimming milestones. My nephew is so confident in the water that we know he will have the best chance possible if anything were to happen. Us as mums and aunties should make mobile swimming businesses more well known. My nephew picked up his strokes and techniques twice as quick as the swim school he was enrolled in all due to the one on one learning. Very highly rated!

Really impressed

18-07-2016 by India Brooker

My 3 year old daughter has been swimming with Dean throughout last season and her confidence has improved greatly. As a result, she is now able to find the side of the pool and make it there without my help. I highly recommend Dean from Deanos Nemos for his exceptional ability to build confidence in children around water and the added convenience of him being able to come to your house is great!
