Swift and helpful service

17 Feb 2019

Very swift response and very helpful.

Excellent Service

15 Feb 2019

I booked originally because they had quoted £300 less that another agent for an identical package. Then,when I had a couple of queries, I was absolutely stunned, that instead of replying by email, they took the trouble to phone me. And took me step by step through my quest for further information. Excellent Service

Emma was very helpful when we booked our cruise. She was able to hold our choice for an hour whilst we sorted out rather complicated flights on another site. We then got back to her to confirm and pay for our reservation. We were delighted to book our cherry blossom cruise around Japan only two months before departing.
