AFRICA

[The Santorini] was a great way to end our honeymoon! As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the friendliest staff. We knew this was paradise and we couldn’t have dreamed up a more perfect honeymoon spot. We enjoyed reading on the beach, paddleboarding, relaxing by the pool, massages, incredible meals, and even a birthday celebration. I can’t stress enough how fantastic the service was from Heidi, Wynand, and all the staff. They made our stay as enjoyable and perfect as possible. We hope to come back again!

First of all, we would like to thank you for arranging such an incredible itinerary! It was truly a trip of a lifetime! We had the most amazing time! All of the technical aspects (transfers, flights etc..) were seamless. We felt so well taken care of. The lodges, guides, staff, safaris, food and experience were all beyond our expectations and we could not have asked for more. The safaris were beautiful and we have such a new found amazement, awe and respect for the gorgeous wildlife we saw. Just experiencing the terrain was inspiring. We saw the Big 5 in the first few days!

All [properties] were unique, different, and amazing! Our favorite was Little Vumbura-staff was gracious and kind. Our guide, Russell Crossey, was excellent!!! Location, wildlife, rooms – 5 stars!!

Sandy and Chip…thank you for your help in putting together a magical two weeks in Kenya. When your daughter cries because she does not want to leave…we knew we had hit a homerun.

Robyn, We are back from the very best honeymoon ever. It was perfect in every way…We were never left waiting at an airport or for a car and we were always whisked away quickly to the comfort of a smiling face and air conditioning.”
— Annie Marx. Tanzania
We loved the Kicheche Bush Camp. Darryl and Emma were the best hosts we could have imagined…blown away by the entire experience!

Robyn, thank you, we had a wonderful trip! There were no delays or problems with the flights, everything was perfect…every single person tried to make us happy at every lodge we stayed…thank you again for all your help and for making this trip possible! I truly think this safari could not have been better!

Sandy…we left our heart in Africa. The whole family had such a fantastic time and every moment was spectacular and magical. Thank you so much for organizing such a memorable trip for us. We loved James too. We cannot thank you enough.

My first trip to Africa-couldn’t have been better on all fronts.
— Jayne Allison. East Africa
Our experience at each property was phenomenal and special. This was my first trip to Africa and I never imagined it could be that beautiful and amazing.
— Jennifer Ward. East Africa
Kenya seems to grab us…the landscape is dramatic, but it probably comes down to the people.
— Hayes Hitchens. Kenya
Spent 5 nights in the glorious Lamai Serengeti where our room opened directly onto the Serengeti plains and we saw herds of wildebeest every morning…We had one of the very few female guides in the country and she was all ours the whole time. She was amazing, showed us cheetah with cubs, lions eating wildebeest and nursing baby cubs, we saw hippos and zebra and herds of elephant and crocodiles and did a hot air balloon to see the sun rise one day. It was spectacular.
— Annie Marx. Tanzania
All accommodations were fabulous. Hospitality was incredible all over South Africa. Everything was planned perfectly, including transfers. This was the trip of a lifetime. Everything went so smoothly. We loved it all.
— Taryn Ross. South Africa
Mara Toto was my favorite property. I loved the size of the camp, the intimacy, the location, the comfortable feel, and a fabulous staff.
— Gail Casey. East Africa
We had no glitches, our whole trip…ran completely smoothly! Every detail was considered.

Brittany, we can’t thank you enough for your help with planning our trip to Nicaragua! We had such an amazing time. It was everything we were hoping for: relaxing and beautiful, peaceful yet energizing. With both our work schedules as crazy as they are, it truly was the perfect trip to clear our minds and enjoy ourselves. Thank you so so much! We can’t wait to look into planning our next adventure.
— RYAN NORYS AND KRISTEN CHURLONIS. NICARAGUA
Sandy, you really put together a perfect trip for us, taking the time to plan an amazing itinerary…without your expertise and guidance we would not have been able to design such an incredible trip…This was the most incredible vacation we have ever had!!! Thank you Sandy!
— Ned Henry. Galapagos Island & Ecuador Highlands
The experience of the Galapagos Islands was life-changing. Stunning. Incredible. The staff and guides at [Galapagos Safari Camp] were over-the-top excellent.
— Ned Henry. Galapagos Island & Ecuador Highlands
The Reina Silvia was excellent. The yacht was well appointed and clean, but most of all the crew and our naturalist/guides were excellent in all respects: knowledgeable, friendly, and anticipating our every need. The animal encounters were amazing and our days were filled with activities. We loved it!

AUSTRALIA

Sandy, I need to express my gratitude for your hand in the utter perfection of all my trips with your company. You are the pinnacle of travel planners-you really work hard to get the little things just right. You are a genius at the singular experiences… Thank you for outdoing my every expectation and dream!
— Sandra Snabl. Australia
The whole trip was a total blast and came off without a single hitch. All food, all flights, all transfers, all rooms were perfect. A first for me in over fifty countries of leisure travel.

EUROPE & BEYOND

Excellent guides and properties throughout…beyond amazing trip. We are already thinking about our next adventure.
— Matt Hamilton. Greece
It’s taken me awhile to catch up with life back home, so this email is late, though probably better timed, as I think about and savor the trip everyday. Many rich memories. You really pulled out all the stops for us. Every, and I mean every, detail so beautifully handled. Like I said earlier Amit, on my best days, maybe I get to have a four star life, so to be treated to 5 was such a treat. But, what I shall most remember is the interactions. The guides were terrific, not only knowledgeable, but kind and incredible interesting men. The city walking tours were some of both Alex’s and my favorite as well as the cooking demonstration, private concert in Varanasi, and quite frankly Amit, dinner in your home, and a chance to be with you, your gracious wife, and adorable daughter. The festival…well all I can say is I’m glad I took pictures, it helps…because words fail to express what an incredible experience that was. How they used that fort to stage the concerts, the music itself, the sound system, lighting, food and drink, interesting guests, and a chance to hang out with the musicians. Stellar. You were wise to insist we went to Chatra Sagar, depute the drought, an amazing place. I have written Ishan separately, but believe me, he is an incredible asset to your organization. He really went all out with big small details, and once again our driver/guide was the absolute TOP. So many many thanks.

Blown away. A great combo of academics, culture, museums, city and mountains, urban and beaches.
