Eric Graham

Just a quick note to let you know that we have all arrived back home safe and sound. We really enjoyed the China experience and all your travel arrangements went like clockwork. All the accommodation and tour guides at each location were great. We all felt that the Lijiang leg was our favourite. We even had thoughts of heading back there and heading even further west into the Tibetan mountain regions. The trip was a real cultural experience that reflected both the old and new China. Thank you for all your efforts in planning this memorable holiday and making the trip relaxed and stress free. (apart from the millions of crazy kamikaze drivers) We really enjoyed the company of John and Di which made the trip even more memorable and enjoyable.The 4 of us with a guide worked a treat. Will send some photos soon. Thanks again for all your work. Will talk soon. Eric, Margaret, John and Di

We really enjoyed our trip and saw some amazing things on our travels. Were lucky with the weather only had two rainy days and all our flights were on time! All our accommodation was clean and comfortable and our tour was great. We had a friendly group of fellow travellers and our tour directors were wonderful. Our highlights were Niagara Falls, Quebec City, Yosemite, cycling across the Golden Gate bridge, the Fall colours, the war memorials in Washington and of course all New York had to offer. Thank you for all your hard work in assisting with our travel plans. We really value your advice and friendship. We look forward to contacting you again when we start planning our next trip! Thanks again for everything you did for us. Tony and Emily

Thank you for the beautiful flowers. We had a fabulous time, the scenery was fantastic, content of our tour was excellent, especially the land section and we learnt so much about the the history and culture of the 3 countries along the way. The hotel in Dubrovnik was in a great location with easy access to town. We enjoyed our time in Munich and Oktoberfest was a lot of fun and the Castles tour was good. Thursday it was a public holiday so we walked the quiet streets, found a beer garden and celebrated with the locals. A stein of beer at noonish, Trev thought was pretty darn good. Until next trip, thank you from both of us

Our trip lasted almost 6 weeks covering the South of England,Wales and Ireland. Debbie was of enormous help with organising our self tour stages and car hire. Her attention to detail was just what we needed. With 4 of us travelling we had many personal places we wished to visit and Deb was very helpful in her advice in ways to navigate this and help us to compromise. Of course we wanted to do everything, many of our bucket list must do’s were covered. An amazing time had by all. Thanks Deb for all your follow up and time. The trip was surreal.

Thanks Debbie for sorting out our cancelled flight back from Tauranga / Aukland / Perth which was completely out of everyone's control. The extra stop in Sydney wasn't too bad either as flights were all running on time etc. Thanks again for your fantastic service.

We have just returned from a family holiday 50th birthday celebration to Borneo. We can't thank you enough Deb for the amazing trip you arranged for us. We had a fantastic time.Your attention to detail was impeccable and far exceeded our highest expectations. We felt very pampered and knew that every thing would run perfectly and it did! Our favourite parts of the holiday included staying at the Borneo Natural Sukau Bilit Resort in the jungle on the Kinabatangan River, jungle treks and early morning & evening cruises on the river spotting wild life and seeing orangutans in their natural habitat. We also really loved staying at the beautiful Shangri-la Rasa Ria Resort situated on a 64 acre Nature Reserve 30 minutes out of Kota Kinabalu. Staying there was an experience in itself. There was lots to do if you wished including playing golf on an adjacent stunning golf course or relax and just soak up the sun and atmosphere. The staff, facilities and the food there was amazing. Thanks so much for helping us create great family memories. We can't wait to book our next trip with you!

Debbie, thank you so much for planning and arranging such a fabulous holiday in Southern Africa. Everything went like clockwork and I truly believe it is our best holiday adventure ever. Clearly your intimate knowledge of Southern Africa and travel management skills contributed to such a seamless experience. Margaret kept saying WOW WOW WOW. It was all just amazing. We are now editing our many photos and videos whilst contemplating the possibility of East Africa in the near future. We have memories which will last a lifetime. Thank you for everything!

Thank you so very much for organising our holiday to Cairns for our family of 5. What a beautiful location. We stayed at the Blue Lagoon and could not fault it. Our tours were so well organised with a personal touch all the way. No one wanted to come home. Thanks so much Debbie, looking forward to arranging our next holiday.

Hi Debbie, Thank you so much for yet again a most wonderful holiday to Vietnam. We visited Hoi an and Nha Trang. Life sometimes helps us find amazing people Debbie had organised our trip to Vietnam 10 years ago, through a mutual friend we were connected with Debbie again. She has the most amazing way of knowing my husband and I and what sort of holiday suits us. Our holiday this time was so seamlessly wonderful from the moment we landed. Our guides were so genuine and humble and we leant so much about about Vietnam...Our accomodation Debbie recommended was out of this world. We have had Debbie by our sides for quite a few wonderful holidays and I am temped at this moment to ask her to send me through another holiday idea...but back to work for us for the moment...but I do know that we will again have no hesitation to ask Debbie to plan another exciting adventure for us both. Thank you so much Debbie from the bottom of our hearts for creating such beautiful memories of distance lands for us both to cherish forever. Michele and Jorgen Andersen

Thank you Deb for organising myself, Lily and Vanessa's trip to Bali. Most people probably wouldn't use a travel agent to book Bali but it was my first trip without my husband who usually does all the hard work but we left it to Deb who did an amazing job. Luckily the volcano behaved itself and did not interfere with any of our flights. Using Deb gave us peace of mind that if there was going to be any delays we would have her as our contact. Bali Mandira in Legian was fabulous and I would highly recommend this accommodation. Location, service, meals, facilities A1 !! Thanks again Deb we had a ball !!

I have just returned form a quick 10 days in South Africa mostly for Business. As usual Debbie's attention to detail shone through, with seamless , no fuss delivery. I flew to J'burg then to Cape Town where on arrival my shuttle driver was waiting for me. Arrival at the Hotel in lovely Cape Town again without a hitch. Back to J'burg / Sandton with everything organised again. Unfortunately some Meetings were cancelled so without hassle Debbie organised an early return Flight back Perth. As always Debbie's attention to detail and the fact that she has been there and knows what her Clients may face is really what makes the difference when entrusting Debbie to arrange your Holiday or Business trip. The MTA App makes it easy to track your Itinerary.

Debbie Andrews planned an extensive, 2 month holiday to Canada, the USA and New Zealand for us. We travelled by numerous flights, cruised the Inside Passage, travelled by coach and trains. We had the BEST time. It was planned so well and we even had a MTA App on our phone that was updated daily with all our travel details. Debbie came to our home and it cost us nothing but coffee and muffins!

We've just returned from another wonderful holiday organised by Deb! We had a wonderful time walking from one side of the UK to the other - following Hadrian's Wall from West to East. We had a great experience. We had two days of rain but we were prepared with all the right gear and it didn't dampen our experience at all. The B & B's were all different and all wonderful. We also managed to squeeze in a little family genealogical research and the use of a hire care was a good way to end the holiday. Thanks for all your work Deb - answering our questions and following through on our requests. Who knows where our next trip will take us.

Hi Deb. Thank you once again for planning and organising our family holiday to Vietnam. If I had to describe Vietnam in one word, it would be WOW! Our trip was AMAZING! We all had the best time and learnt so much along the way. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Not a thing went wrong and it ran exactly to our itinerary. Our tours were exactly what we had hoped for and our tour guides were amazing, very informative. Our accommodation was outstanding and the customer service was like no other. I can not thank you enough for making our holiday stress free and for making life long memories we will cherish forever. I will definitely recommend you to our family and friends and look forward to planning our next trip. Regards Bec

Deb did an incredible job organising our honeymoon to Japan and Singapore in January 2016. It was our second holiday booked through her and we will ALWAYS use Deb for future holidays. She was so efficient in getting back to us with flight, hotel and transfer options. Nothing is too much trouble for Deb and nothing is missed in the preparation for a perfect holiday! Deb found a perfect hotel for us in the ski village Niseko, The Greenleaf. It was a direct ski in and out resort with the most amazing Onsen! We enjoyed many morning coffee's and night time cocktails in the hotels bar overlooking the ski slopes. In Tokyo we were transferred direct from the airport to our hotel in Shinjuku and Deb organised a half day tour of the city which took us to all the amazing sites. Our stay in Singapore was taken to the next level with the amazing hotel that Deb recommended and booked for us - The Fullerton. We experienced beautiful service with a room overlooking Marina Bay and the BEST daily breakfast.

We have just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime Christmas holiday in Europe. It was all we'd hoped for.Unfortunately the snow wasn't as plentiful as we'd expected but that didn't put a dampener on our holiday. Debbie did a great job coordinating the flights, trains and accommodation for the seven of us - six adults and a baby. We all flew to Munich together but flew home from different cities on different days, so it took quite a bit of liaising and organising on Debbie's behalf. We were able to combine sightseeing and visiting friends and Debbie was happy for us to do some of the organising of part of the trip ourselves. The MTA App was great - we all had no problems loading it onto our devices. We also loaded the EURAIL App, following Debbie's advice, and this was very useful. We regularly accessed it to determine the best train to take on the day. We've already booked another holiday for 2017 with Debbie!

Fantastic! is one word that can describe our holiday. We both thoroughly enjoyed it all. The destination was quite incredible, full of wonderful memories. We were blessed with the most gorgeous weather, and so were able to make the most of our time away. The islands we visited were quite amazing, and I can still see the beautiful people, especially the little children! Seeing a different culture was wonderful. We both enjoyed the ship as well and made new friends onboard. Our room was great,and we loved being able to wake up in the morning and walk out and see the horizon in front of us. On conflict Island we saw beautiful coral and fish, the water was so pristine. The days were also wonderful in Cairns. It was so nice to land there and put a T-shirt on. Our accomodation was lovely. Thank you putting it all together so wonderfully for us. Cruising was such a lovely way to see different places without the worry of taking suitcases etc around. To be able to get back onboard after spending the day onshore was great.

We have just returned from a trip to New York, New Orleans, Las Vegas and Cabo San Lucas organised by the very capable and amazing Debbie Andrews. Initially ( like in my dreams �) I thought my friend and I could organise our dream 40th Birthday trip without a travel agent but had my mind changed. I am so grateful for the input, advice and organisation that Debbie contributed to our holiday. The MTA App was beyond helpful in accessing all details pertaining to our holiday and allowed Debbie to quickly and conveniently message or alert us if required. I could work and 'mother' hassle free right up until our departure as EVERYTHING was seen to by Debbie. We are very grateful Debbie and can't thank you enough.

Michele and Jorgen Andersen

Hi Debbie We are back..and back at work!!. We had the most wonderful holiday, everything was perfect!. It was so amazing in Denmark, Jorgen was like a movie star..everyone wanted to catch up with him. We drank copious amounts of coffee and danish cakes on each visit. It was very special to see everyone after such a long time. The weather was perfect, it had been cold until we got there, the family said, so maybe we bought some aussie sunshine with us! Paris was also fantastic we loved our short time there. Mauritius was also so lovely, it is really so pristine and gorgeous. All our hotels were spot on…thank you so much for your choices for us. Yes it all happened so quickly, but we packed so much in that it was really fun!. Air Mauritius were great to fly with, I really enjoyed their hospitality and managed to sleep a lot on the flights. It was a bit sad to say goodbye to the family and we would really like to go back next year. Thank you so much for the greeting card when we returned.. lovely! Thanks again Deb!

Thank you, Debbie for your superb organisation of our Canada, Alaska trip. We had a fantastic time. We have never seen such spectacular scenery. Your organisation was awesome with nothing left to chance. From the moment we arrived at Perth airport everything went like clockwork according to your detailed itinerary. Your personal visit before leaving was great with every little detail being covered. Even as to where to do our washing! We not only feel we now have our own personal travel agent but have made a genuine friend. Thank you again, Trish and Graeme

Well Debbie. We've done our dream holiday, Amsterdam to Budapest. What a wonderful experience. Judy and myself , along with our fellow travel mates, Ken and Shirley Lally , would like to thank you , for all that you have done in organising our great holiday. From when we boarded our plane in Perth , to Hong Kong and Paris , everything went to plan as your detailed itinerary quoted. Our hotels in Paris, Hong Kong , were excellent in both comfort , service and location. We had no problem with your organising the train from Paris to Amsterdam , as our instruction sheet you supplied was spot on. The Amsterdam hotel was as good as the others. With the first part of our holiday done without a hitch , we boarded the "Bellejour" for the most beautiful 14 days , up the rivers, locks, visiting all those wonderful places. Had it not been for your expert organisation of our itinerary , we might have been a bit stressed and overwhelmed , but thanks to you , we cruised through it all feeling totally relaxed and happy. The four of us thank you for that. We will most certainly be calling you when the next items on our "bucket list", firstly a Vietnam trip , and then a Mediterranean cruise come due. It was a delight to have you as our travel agent. Thanks again. Warm regards, Phil & Judy ....Ken & Shirley.

Debbie, You are amazing and our trip to New Zealand went off without any dramas at all. Your expert planning covered every possible angle and the advise given to me was exceptional. Your personal visit to explain the whole trip made it just happen and there are not enough words to say how happy we were. I could go on and on but we both know you are special and looking forward to dong it all again as I would NOT trust any other travel agent. Gerry & Sally
