Clients enjoyed our 23 day Canada/Alaska & Hawaii tour
Good afternoon Leanne,
We would like to give you some feedback on the package put together by Luxury Escapes. We had a fabulous time away travelling through Canada, Alaska and Hawaii. We thoroughly enjoyed the Rockies and the wildlife in Alaska, not to mention relaxing and exploring the beaches of Waikiki.
Everything went well [couldn’t find fault with anything whatsoever] and the accommodation and tours arranged were awesome. We particularly enjoyed the Key West tour in the Rockies and the Denali National Park tour. The guides and drivers were most professional and friendly. They really knew their stuff. Thank you for arranging this wonderful lifetime experience for us.

Cruise: The best group I have travelled with
I did send you a note regarding our trip but as I was then on the ship, I am not sure you received it so am just letting you know we had a great time. Our fellow travellers were great and really by far the best group I have travelled with. I usually find myself thinking thank goodness I was not travelling alone but with this group it would have been fine. There were quite a few included meals which were of excellent quality. Our English tour leader Derek was excellent. He informed the group that we had prepaid gratuities so they would not think we were failing to reward tour guides or the driver and he was professional in every way. June was very happy with all aspects of the tour (thank goodness) so can see the real benefits of tours more reasonably priced than Scenic. The only hitch was caused by Emirates who failed to pick us up from the ship. A lovely English couple rescued us so dropped us at the airport sharing their taxi. You will see I am suffering a bit of jet lag by the time I am sending this. Thanks once again for your efforts on our behalf, very kind regards,
South Africa and Egypt: Transfers from airports were smooth and the holidays were fantastic
We are back from our back to back holidays of South Africa and Egypt and just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for your excellent organisation of our holiday. Everything went to schedule and the accommodation and food vastly exceeded our expectations. All meetings and transfers from airports were smooth and the holidays were fantastic especially South Africa which was a Drifters tour and I would highly recommend this company. Egypt was an entirely different type of holiday and was also enjoyed although Chrismar tour company were a bit disorganised and things went to “Egypt time”. Anyway it was a pleasure to deal with you and with Kogan Travel and we will certainly be watching for more special adventures. Thanks again Dave!
Africa: Best holiday ever!
My best holiday ever – exceeded all my expectations – loved all the wildlife and the African sunsets were just amazing – hope to go back and see some more of that beautiful continent one day. Have a great day and thank you.
Sri Lanka: A wonderful and memorable holiday
Tom and I would like to thank you for organising such a wonderful and memorable holiday for us in Sri Lanka. The itinerary was excellent. We visited amazing world heritage sites, fishing markets and had the most awesome meal in the jungle with delightful and generous people. I am now a dab hand at daahls after a brilliant cooking experience in the Thilanka Hotel, Kandy.
We cannot fault Nkar Travel. Our guide, Chammi, was the ultimate professional and a great ambassador for his country and company in equal parts. We at all times felt safe and confident plus he was an excellent communicator. He looked after us with care and attention and was very thoughtful.
We had a problem with our last three nights accommodation at Garton’s Cape – Ahangama. However Nkar travel immediately sorted it without any drama on their part. We were relocated that same night to the Heritance Hotel at Ahungalla, which was so much better and such a relief after our brief but unpleasant Garton Cape experience.
We were so impressed and grateful to them for their swift intervention, especially as it was after hours for them.
As you will gather we have been so impressed and thank you and your team for your excellent communication, organisation and for allowing us to have such a truly wonderful holiday.
Grace and Tom Quaye
