We love planning trips for our clients and it makes us really happy when they share their experiences with us when they return. Here are a selection of the many testimonials that we’ve had from recent trips.
We had a brilliant time thank you. We saw a lot in 19 days!! T he weather was a little dodgy and we seemed to follow the rain.
Mendoza was beautifully sunny and we really enjoyed our time there. Puesto Viejo was really good fun and the whales, penguins and sea elephants were amazing (we were so close to everything!).
We don’t think we will fancy steak for a while;- huge portions of meat, and vegetables (especially green ones) were a real rarity!! All in all it was a great trip so thank you very much for organising. We will be recommending you and Argentina as a holiday destination!
Just to say that we really enjoyed Russia. Everything was well organised and the 2 guides Elena and Maria were excellent.
We’ve had a wonderful time in Vietnam & Cambodia. The logistics all worked very smoothly and we had some excellent guides who taught us an awful lot about the history and custom of both countries. The people were simply fantastic and the food was so good.
The sights were exceptional, and some horrific testimony to inhumanity and pointless war. Thank you so much for another successful trip. We will now start thinking about where next for 2018.
We have just had the most wonderful time in Nsefu Camp with our group. One of the things we were really hoping to see were the wild dogs but didn’t expect to see three different packs and to be able to spend time sitting and watching the pups play and the interaction between the whole group. We also saw them chasing impala and although we didn’t see the kill itself we arrived to see them eating!
We also saw the larger pack giving a hyena a very sore and bloody bottom. Magical. We had such a wonderful time – so many animals and special moments.
We are back safely from a wonderful 2 weeks in Borneo. Everything went to plan apart from the overnight stay in the longhouse – we were told it was unsafe due to recent heavy rain. Our guide was able to book us into a nearby lodge that evening and we then made a trip to another longhouse the next day, albeit just for the morning. The 3 days on the Kinabatangan river and the 3 days at the Rainforest Lodge were amazing. Our guides, Sam (S.I. Tours) and Azmil (Bormeo Rainforest Lodge) were very knowledgeable and enabled us to get the most out of our visit.
Thank you for all your hard work in putting this together for us. We will definitely contact you again when we have decided on our next holiday destination.
Peru was a really special trip for our 30th wedding anniversary – thank you so much for organising it and for putting in some special touches and surprises along the way. It rained heavily for our first day at Machu Picchu and even our emergency ponchos could not keep out the wet. However on the second day, the sun came out, the clouds lifted and it was a magical experience.
We met some fascinating people along the way, learned a lot about Peru old and new and made some friends. Lastly the Andean Explorer train – what a fantastic surprise to travel in such luxury through the dramatic scenery of the high Andes! Thank you for arranging such a memorable holiday for us.
Thank you. What can I say apart from thank you very much. We’ve had one of the best times and best holidays I’ve ever had, and it all worked perfectly. The journey across California and what we did was perfect, and ending up in Santa Monica was lovely. Thank you for arranging everything, and sadly now sat back at my desk ….but thinking of the next trip. Thanks again Pam – you did a great job yet again
A HUGE THANKYOU!!! We have had an absolutely fabulous holiday. So many amazing experiences!! Really too many to process!! Everything went really smoothly, and ALL the hotels/trips/towns/activities etc were brilliant, without exception. Probably the highlights were Amakala and whale watching in Hermanus. Experiences never to be forgotten! And wonderful to do it together as a family! Thank you so much for your attention to detail, and for all the planning you did for us. All just fabulous!!
We had a great time in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands – the train journey and the cruise were brilliant. Many photographs and great memories from both trips. All the accommodation was first rate.
All went extremely well and we all thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. The guides were excellent and Kenya certainly lived up to expectations.
We had an amazing holiday: a lovely part of the country, and sorting out the photos now! Thank you for all your arrangements – it all worked well and hotels in all the right places!
Many thanks for booking our holiday. It truly was amazing and we had a great time.
We had a very good week with no mishaps and reasonable weather. The hotel was good – nice helpful staff, reasonable food and good facilities.
Our guide was excellent although slightly concerned about the size of the group at the beginning. However, she relaxed after a few days as we were all well behaved! Everyone said how much they had enjoyed the week. We can certainly count it a success. So thank you very much for putting together our week’s holiday and organising it all.
Just to let you know we had a wonderful time in Dorset with a lovely group of people. We saw some amazing wildlife and had a fantastic time.
Just back from another great trip. Thanks again for organising it all.
We had an amazing trip – really loved it. Thank you so much for organizing.
We are now home today and we had a fabulous time thank you.
We would like to pop over for a chat – we’ve got the travel bug now…
Thank you for organising a really memorable, if sometimes challenging, holiday. The highlights were wonderful and in many cases unique, and the mix of cultures (Greek, Roman, Norman, Byzantine, Arabic, Spanish, Italian) I found absolutely fascinating.
Thanks so much for making arrangements for our Kerala trip. We loved Dewalokam more than anywhere and would love to return there. It was all quite a contrast to the ten days in the north, where we’d been in deserts or cities, so the natural beauty was restorative and restful.
Am still coming down to earth and assimilating the kaleidoscope of things seen and experienced. Editing photos will be quite a challenge!
The forts and historical sites were very interesting – and the Taj Mahal was outstanding. So glad to have seen all this. We really liked Dera Mandawa and Mr Singh was very nice. We also loved just walking around Jaipur and the markets etc. The cooking course with Mrs Singh has inspired me to try new Indian dishes – I’ve been making cheela for breakfast and plan to try more recipes.
It was sad to see how much damage Kathmandu has sustained but they are certainly trying to rebuild everywhere. The Dwarikas Hotel was very lovely and very friendly.
In Kathmandu we visited Patan by ourselves; what a great place. And we also liked Bakhtapur (a lot) and the guide took us to some really down-to-earth local food places on our request – he said we were only the second European visitors in years who had asked him to do this.
I really enjoyed learning more about the religions and traditions.
We did enjoy Essaouira and the whole holiday was great. Everything went very smoothly. Many thanks for another very well organised trip.
We enjoyed the Mekong Cruise very much. Fascinating. We were on a two cabin boat with 5 crew members. The river traffic was wonderful to watch and several stops to look at markets and small businesses were good. All the hotels in Vietnam were excellent and the food was very good. A very good trip. Thank you.
I don’t know where to begin to thank you for our India holiday. It was wonderful. We loved the mad chaos and the peace which are both part of India. The sights were awe inspiring and beautiful but the people made the most lasting impression. We were shown such kindness and graciousness.
You planned it so beautifully.
The whole tour worked, even though our plane was delayed and our train was late, there was always someone there to meet us. The balance of different kinds of places too. When we needed rest after the manic parts the nature places restored us. We enjoyed and were surprised by every place we went to. Our only regret was that we didn’t have time to stay longer at each one as there were always things that we didn’t have time to see, and in the quiet places it would have been lovely to stay for a while to absorb the atmosphere. It helps having good drivers.
Also at the mention of your name I think our status went up massively. You are a very popular and respected woman!
It’s hard to pick out what my favourite parts were because I loved all of it. The houseboat in Kerala was like an exquisite dream. I loved staying in beautiful palaces, Udai Kothi at Udaipur, Ramathra Fort, The BrijRama Palace at Varanasi and The Windamere Hotel in Darjeeling where we were upgraded to the Princess of Siam’s suite were particular favourites but then I also loved the coffee plantation at Wayanad and the ultra-glamorous tents at Charta Sager.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you for organizing the most amazing, fantastic memorable holiday. It could not have been more exciting and exceeded our expectations in every way. Accommodation and food was exceptional. Neither of us wanted to come home!! We cannot thank you enough.
We had such a good time – all of us loved doing a bit & moving on to the next stop, all very different places. When we were in Cape Town we spent a day driving down to the Cape – amazing day with clear blue sky and fierce wind whipping up the waves – we watched the surf boarders, but glad we were not in the water! Botlierskop was wonderful – glamping in style! And the horse ride A and I did was wonderful.
Villa Africana in Knysna was bliss, all our needs catered for, and the staff were wonderful, full of smiles. Anyway, suffice to say – we had an amazing time, thank you for organising us.
