Other Destination Testimonials 


We recently travelled to Russia, with train travel, sightseeing tour and accommodation booked in St. Petersburg and Moscow.
Both our hotels were very good and in excellent locations.

We are home and had a great time.  Everything with the booking went like clock work.  Great place to stay, Bermudian people are the friendliest people in the world; the sea was so blue, the sand so white and just so warm up there.
Racing was so exciting and we got to celebrate with Team NZ.
Great job - you did good.

Enchanting Persia

8 day 'private tour' from Shiraz - Persepolis - Pastagad - Yazd - Naeen - Isfahan - Natanz - Abyaneh - Kashan.
Thank you very much for a truly wonderful experience.

The places we visited and the people we met have given me a proper insight into Iran - so very different from the image portrayed in the western media.
A special thank you to my guide - Ghasem  - for being responsive to my requests to see places other tourists might not find interesting.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Iran - great sights, great people and great food.  Our guide was fantastic - his knowledge and passion for Iran shone through.  He was very informative on a whole range of subjects - not just the 'tourist' stuff. We packed an enormous amount into our time in Iran.  We also got envious looks from tourists without a guide, because we got really good explanations.

We liked eating at the traditional Iranian restaurants, all of which had excellent food.

A favourite experience was the carpet buying, and I will treasure my "Persian carpet" purchased in Isfahan.

The 5* Zanidiyeh Hotel in Shiraz was a stand out - especially the Iranian bath.

In August I participated in your 'Treasures of Poland' tour.  I had a most enjoyable time.  The tour was smooth and seamless with great accommodation and wonderful places of interest.  I am recommending your company to all and sundry.  I would like to also acknowledge the big impact the tour guide has.  Maria Johann was an excellent tour guide; sweet, understanding, firm, thorough, helpful and knowledgeable.

I am not a regular traveller but thoroughly enjoyed my experiences with your company.

  Spain & Portugal

Our holiday in Spain and Portugal was really good and the organisation went smoothly in all aspects. 

We loved our hotels - but the Pousada do Porto and Freixo Palace hotel in Porto (Portugal) was the best.  The Hotel Petit Palace Pousada del Peine in Madrid was in an excellent position.

Our brand dew Skoda (Hertz) Rental vehicle in Portugal was excellent, and the staff were very efficient.

Russia & Eastern Europe

We recently completed the 17 day Escorted coach tour of Russia, the Baltics, Poland and Prague visiting Moscow, Novgorod, St Petersburg, Tallinn (Estonia) , Riga (Latvia), Vilnius (Lithuania), Warsaw & Krakow (Poland) and Prague (Czech Republic).    It was a great trip - very intense and a tad tiring - but what a lot we experienced!

We took the opportunity to go onto Budapest (Hungary) for 3 night at the end of the tour which we loved.
