Testimonials

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.

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.

We had a brilliant time, and all the accommodation was fantastic especially the Robberg Beach Lodge and la Fontaine. The Garden Route Game Lodge made an excellent break to our journey on the drive to Plett. We loved our time in South Africa and are very grateful for the itinerary you put together for us as it worked very well. However, we have decided that one day we should go back at a quieter time of the year and spend longer in Cape Town as Christmas was so busy and full of huge traffic jams just like London!

The Kenya visit way exceeded my high expectations. Thank you so much. The animal action we saw was absolutely stunning. Day after day of fascinating new experiences.  Simon is a legend in every way. The group was tremendous fun and very supportive of each other. Back to routine now for a while. Thanks again.

We had an amazing time! Can’t fault any part of it. All of the accommodation, food, excursions and hosts were excellent. Thank you so much for your help. We will certainly be in touch when we plan our next adventure!

An excellent trip thank you Pam.  What a fascinating country!  A good selection of hotels, knowledgeable and personable guides and even our flights were pretty much on time!  Many thanks again and I shall look forward to the next adventure…

Just back from another brilliant trip. Botswana more than lived up to our expectations; the wildlife and the camps you chose were superb. Thanks, yet again, for arranging a flawless expedition.

We arrived home last weekend after a really lovely week away – everything went smoothly and as planned and apart from the dire post-Brexit exchange rates we had a very good time. Best wishes and many thanks for organising such a good holiday for us.

A fantastic holiday thank you! We enjoyed every minute and the sights were just wonderful! We saw grizzly, black bears, elk, orca and humpback whales! Your organisation and itinerary was excellent, everything went exactly as planned. Too many high spots to list, but the Harley ride was great fun, as was the whole Rockies section, Emerald Lake, zodiac trips from Tofino, Victoria and Vancouver. Thank you very much again – we will recommend you to anyone planning a trip

The whole trip went very well, accommodation was spot on. The group had some really great evening sessions especially in the micro-breweries! Visited Craters of the Moon Monument in Idaho – wonderful display of wild flowers on cinder. Weather perfect all the way and blue skies everywhere. Grand Tetons brilliant again until midafternoon when there was a massive thunderstorm with huge hail stones. Saw loads bison, black bear & cubs, elk and a moose. Thanks!

Cuba was very good and the trip went very well.  The hotels covered the complete range from faded glory (Florida) to the more opulent (Palacio Azul) to splendid views (Los Jasmines) and Trinidad more interesting in itself.  The locations also covered the complete range from capital city to country, seaside and village. All the transfers were on time or early in a variety of cars and everybody was very helpful. Viñales was also very interesting and exceeded expectations.  The local hop on/off tour bus broke down and was repaired by a mechanic sliding under, raising the suspension and completing the job by getting wire from the adjacent fence! Worked though. All in all, a very interesting and enjoyable holiday so thanks for organising it for us.

Thank you so much for organising our fantastic honeymoon to America. We had an amazing 3 weeks looking at all the sites. Everything ran smoothly which was perfect. The weather was lovely throughout the trip apart from the blizzard at the Grand Canyon whilst we were in shorts and flip flops!

Back home after an epic holiday to SL.  The holiday was an unqualified success, and we managed to pack in a huge amount.  Many thanks for setting this up for us

We just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for organising our trip to New York.  We were extremely lucky with the weather and had an amazing trip.  Both tours were exceptionally well organised and the guides were friendly and well informed.  The hotel was also really lovely and very well situated for all the key attractions. Thank you very much.

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and everything went very smoothly. It was wonderful stepping off the plane in Bangalore and experiencing the heat, noise and smell of India again. Driving from one place to another was was so stimulating, observing the landscapes and daily life along the way. Our driver Benny was excellent, what a nice person , and we felt by safe with him. Thank you for planning such a great itinerary for us. It was just what we wanted in the way of experiencing southern India. We love the country even more.

We had a wonderful holiday. You interpreted our requirement perfectly. It is difficult to say what the highlights were as each new location had its own character,

Firstly, let’s start off by saying that everything and everywhere was wonderful and the organisation was first class. We had the most wonderful time. Longitude 131 was everything you said and more.         Fabulous service, fabulous location, fabulous food, fabulous tours, fabulous staff and the room was quite good with a fabulous view!  We felt very privileged to stay there and are so pleased that we took your advice.

The dinner under the stars was something else and we were fortunate that we stayed an extra night because we were given a private sunset viewing of Uluru and Kata Tjuta with a full wine cooler and individually tailored canapes. (An experience to be savoured for the remainder of our lives). Langkawi was a good way to end our holiday. The Meritus Pelangi was excellent with a lovely room right on the beach. The breakfast buffet was beyond belief with so much food of every variety. The staff were very good and obliging and the island population were charming.   A great holiday Thank you. We’re now thinking where we can go next!

The holiday was fantastic especially the guides we had in Riga and Tallinn. The weather was great – very chilly but a nice covering of snow to make the pics look great but not enough to cause any problems getting around.The guides were very well informed and really interesting especially hearing their personal experiences of life during soviet times. Everything worked really well.

We’d both highly recommend the holiday, and the drive from Riga to Tallinn was well worth the little extra so we could see the countryside and a bit more of both countries. Driving through the forest looked like Christmas in Narnia! Thank you for your work putting it all together especially at such short notice.

It was a fantastic trip and a lovely imaginitive itinerary. Each place was amazing in a different way.

Fabulous!

Had the most amazing trip and can’t thank you enough for putting such an amazing trip together for us. We can’t decide which was the best part. I do have to say the Royal Heritage Haveli in Jaipur was out of this world.  And the tours were so interesting. The Palaces, Forts, Temples and The Taj  were so mind blowing and to come back and watch The Real Marigold Hotel documentary on BBC2 is like going back there and re-living it!!!Cookery lesson was great and it was so lovely to sit and talk to the lovely couple in their home too.

We are both so grateful to you for giving us such amazing memories. Anyway THANK YOU for making my 50th Birthday so special.
