Thank you from Phil and Joan Simmons

Hello there Sonja

We have just returned to Durban –from our vacation/ expedition, and I would like to thank you sincerely for your professional and excellent service.

I will highly recommend your Company to future travellers!

You went out of your way to accommodate Phil, who was in a wheelchair -and on crutches, and my group of golfers.

All went t went exceptionally well, except for the luggage that went missing… and then the Rich’s room at the Hilton.

I personally would say that The Hilton wasn’t as great as I expected, [ and we should have taken your recommendation to live nearer the MARINA]- However, Phil and I had a magnificent suite and they went out of their way to assist us.

The Rose Rayhaan hotel in Dubai was fantastic and so helpful. It was such a pleasure to stay with them.

The tour company in Dubai was also very reliable and can be highly recommended.

At prize giving my group asked -where our next trip is to……….. at this stage of my life after all my drama, I need to smell the roses first.

Best wishes Sonja and what a pleasure it was to work with you.

Regards and many thanks Joan Simmons

Hi Sonja!

Thank you so much!

The honeymoon was absolutely perfect. Everything was smooth – we waited a while at the airport for the transfer to the island but the rep was there to tell us the boat would be late so it was fine! And so worth it once we reached the island.

Meeru is completely amazing. Value for money. Perfect weather even though it’s the rainy season and the resort is the perfect balance of tropical and rustic with the elements of luxury and paradise. We visited another 5 star resort (Paradise Island) and we thought Meeru was much better as it wasn’t so built up and congested, which really takes away from the islands natural beauty.

Thank you for organising a brilliant honeymoon. We won’t hesitate to make use of your services again in future J

Regards, Mr. & Mrs. Davies

Hi Sonja,

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU – we had the most amazing time ever – honestly couldn’t have asked for a better honeymoon. We didn’t want to leave and could definitely have stayed for another day or two.

We have been telling ALL of our friends who are newly engaged to book through you and go to Flamingo Bay.

Flamingo Bay is PARADISE

Thank you for all your help and advice – we really appreciate it all J

Thank you also for our book – we received it yesterday – definitely going to start reading up on our next trip and will be in touch…. Maybe a new years trip to Zanzibar!!!!

Thanks again


Kind regards, Kerry Howieson

Dear Sonja,

Hope that all is well with you. We did not get the chance of meeting you in person when we were in Durban. We wanted to thank you in person. We had a delightful time in Cape Town and appreciated all the arrangements you had made for us.

Dave Coxford did a great job as our tour guide. We appreciated his flexibility and willingness to address the needs of our family with a young child. He was helpful, very considerate and knowledgeable.

Our hotel’s location was a good choice. Had we stayed longer, it may have a good idea to stay at a bed and breakfast (perhaps even outside of Cape Town … Dave has some good ideas about this option location wise).

There is so much to see and experience in Cape Town! We could have easily spent another week or more.

Thank you for making our trip such a memorable one.

Best regards, -naghmeh

Dear Sonja

We would just like to say a VERY VERY VERY BIG thank you for EVERYTHING!! Thank you for the amazing book you so kindly gave us, it is sitting on our coffee table and we have been through it twice already, thank you so much! Thank you for being so efficient, so knowledgeable, so friendly and so helpful. We love the way you presented the vouchers and set out all the information, such a nice touch as opposed to just getting reams of paper.

We have, and will continue to, recommend you to ANYONE who considers travelling anywhere. If you ever need a good reference we will be glad to give you one!

Once again, we can’t thank you enough.

Have a super week.

Markus and Anita
