Joanna was great and so easy to deal with! She booked a weekend away to the Hunter Valley for my partners birthday weekend and we had a great time. Having one point of contact to organise everything made organising the weekend so much easier. I will definitely go back and book something with Joanna the next time I go on another little holiday.

Thank you to Joanna for organising our flights over to Penang for the birth of our 9th grandchild. It was so easy to have Joanna book our flights and have the MTA app for communication, especially with changes of flights etc... We would highly recommend MTA travel it makes life alot easier

We just returned from Hawaii. We found Joanna extremely helpful in researching the best deal. She answered all our questions as this was a first major overseas holiday for us. The accomodation she picked was central to where we wanted to be, enabling us to book activities and suited our budget. The airport transfers amazing. Will definitely go through her again for our next overseas adventure.

Joanna is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She was very easy to work with and keen to listen to what i wanted in a cruise to celebrate my birthday. I would recommend Joanna Blair to help you to tailor your holiday accordingly. Thank you Joanna looking forward to booking our next holiday.

We’ve just come back from an amazing trip. Visiting family in Scotland and having a break in Singapore on the way back. I can’t thank Joanna enough for her help in making it a seamless trip. I’d be happy to recommend her to anyone who’s planning a trip.

Thank you, Joanna, for your planning of my trip to Darwin. Everything went exactly to plan and the tours were excellent. What a great city to visit during the dry season. The tour drivers were well-informed, friendly and helpful. Coaches were comfortable. Can definitely recommend the Katherine George tour. Looking forward to my next trip which you have organised. Thank you again.

Thank you for organising our recent holiday at Paradise Cove Resort, Yasawa Islands, Fiji. Then resort was amazing and all the travel was seamless. It was great to receive a message through the app to advise our seaplane return flight had changed a few days prior. We had other people on the same flight and they were totally unaware of the change until they were advised by hotel staff the day before departure. Joanna is professional, well organised and thorough with all aspects of travel plans. She researched and explained all our options thoroughly giving us peace of mind for our perfect, relaxing getaway. We are looking forward to planning our next holiday with Joanna.

Graham & I would like to thank Joanna for organising our amazing trip for my 60th birthday. We travelled to Malta, Santorini, Dubrovnik, Croatian 7 day cruise to Split & then onto Dubai before heading home. The detail to our trip was perfect, down to all the hotels plus all my birthday surprise including cake, chocolates & balloons. The app was perfect & we were kept up to date with any changes & alerts for flights etc ... The memories will stay with us forever & will continue to use Joanna for future trips, Thank you Polly Graham

I would just like to say that all of Joanna's hard work for us and our trip to the USA definitely paid off for us. We travelled with our daughter and her husband and their 2 children. We had 8 nights in Anaheim, went to Disneyland and Universal Studios plus other bits and pieces. Then we went on to Las Vegas and stayed 4 nights. And then flew from Vegas to Honolulu for 4 days for some R & R before heading home. Joanna organised the flights for my husband and myself and all the transfers to and from hotels for us all. Everything went off without a hitch. And all arrangements were made for us very quickly. Thanks again Joanna. We will get in touch with you for our next holiday. After we stock the bank account back up.

Thought I should add a quick note on Joanna's great work on arranging my trip to the US last year. It a was a fairly big trip with 6 weeks covering NY to LA and included 20+ day group tour, a string of accommodation before and after, additional flights and included 2 islands in Hawaii with tours and yet more accommodation. Did I mention the Laps in a Shelby Mustang in Las Vegas? Joanna arranges it all- even a side trip to see a new band i had discovered a couple of weeks out. Once again Joanna makes everything easy, with her contacts, experience and skills. She picks areas in a city which will match your interest, budget and safety, or other particular requirements. The app they have is great as you get alerts and can check whats up nest and has your documents and a heap of details to contact accommodation and other provider along the way. It even allows you to message Joanna with any issues if they arise on the trip. Or you can just message her to say this is awesome.

Thankyou Joanna for looking after our travel arrangements. The resort Bali Dynasty was excellent. I will recommend it to family and friends. The service was lovely and the staff were exceptional. We had an amazing holiday and we would return to Bali again. Flights, transfers, accommodation were all excellent!!! Thankyou Joanna!!!

Thanks Joanna for organising our family holiday to New Zealand, we all had a great time. The entire holiday was stress free, as it should be. All of our accommodation was perfect and hassle free when we arrived at the end of each day. Looking forward to our next holiday and won't go anywhere else for our holiday plans.

We could not be more happier with Joanna's organising skills for our Singapore Cruise and tours, everything went like clockwork with no problems or hassles. Nothing is a problem for her and we would recommend her to anyone. Such a nice person as well. Joanna, we will definitely be in contact for our next trip. Regards, Geoff and Gwen Jackson

Thanks Joanna. You took all the stress out of my trip. You planned everything so well, and there was a lot in it. Flight to London via Dubai, then accommodation in London 200m from Paddington rail station before 24 day tour with Cosmos UK/ Ireland, then accommodation back at Paddington, fly to Spain, 14 day Cosmos tour and a 3 day stop over in Dubai. I could contact Joanna through the MTA app(which is awesome- it alerts you to flights at a day out? and at so many hours out. you can look at itinerary without connection to web). Thanks a million. Now to plan the next one.

Thank you Joanna for organising our fantastic tour to Alice Springs, Kings Canyon and Uluru. There was nothing to worry about, as everything had been organised so well, from home back to home. My friend and I were so pleased that we used Joanna and MTA for our bookings. Thank you again. We will be in touch for the next thing on our "bucket list".

We experienced a wonderful time at Nora Beach house, Nora Head, during the last week of February . After a long journey from Perth it was a nice surprise to find fresh croissants, jam, chocolate etc. waiting for us, compliments of Joanna. The house is spacious with a warm homely feel to it. A good supply of books and board games ensured that we were never bored. The sea views are unforgettable and brightened up every morning. It is a short walk from the house to the beach with more spectacular views to enjoy. Our flights, car hire and accommodation all lived up to our expectations. Can't wait to arrange our next trip. Thank you Joanna for making it all possible

BIG THANK YOU for ALL your assistance Joanna, you were very thorough and I have already been telling my friends about you as well as how professional, helpful and inexpensive your services were....our 6 week European holiday went smoothly as I already mentioned due to your diligence and patience with us throughout the year of planning it. I will use your services again....so until next time take care..

I hadn't travelled for 30 years and Joanna was absolutely marvelous. I felt as if she held my hand before and during my holiday. She was professional and so so attentive to all my needs. She listened, made suggestions and guided me all the way. I thoroughly enjoyed my time away in Maui and Kauai, Hawaii. I had not hick ups what so ever. She was so well organized and I felt safe knowing that all my needs where taken care of. While I was away I kept in touch with Joanna, if I even made a suggestion of being unsure or unhappy about something, she was right on it, making sure I was totally satisfied and that I was well looked after. I can not thank you enough Joanna. I am so happy to recommend you to family and friends. You are an absolute gem. Thank you.

Joanna was recommended to me by my brother as the best travel expert he has ever dealt with, and he was not wrong; Joanna organised a fantastic trip to the UK for my girlfriend and I. Every aspect of our trip was planned perfectly, but it was the personal touch to the service and "going the extra mile" that stood out for us and is going make Joanna our goto travel agent in the future. Thanks for helping us organise such a memorable holiday.

Joanna was referred to my husband and me by a dear friend and we are so glad she was. Joanna organised a fantastic Europe holiday with a stopover in Dubai, onto a river cruise on the Rhine and Moselle rivers and then travelling on to Croatia to complete a months holiday. Joanna is a true professional who followed through on every phone call and nothing was ever too much trouble for her to organise for us. The detailed instructions for every move we made made our holiday totally hassle free and we never had one problem. I would definitely use Joanna again and would recommend her to anyone who is organising a holiday. Thanks a heap Joanna

My well-travelled friends and I wanted a trip to Tasmania, which Joanna organised for us. She advised us on what was possible in the time we had, and best value for money. Jo managed to get in the sights and experiences we wanted to see with a mixture of bookings and flexibility which really suited us. The accommodation Joanna chose for us was good and always close to where we wanted to be for walking tours or close meals. Joanna was also available to contact when we had the odd question. Thanks Jo! A great holiday made possible by you.

In all my years of travel both for fun and for work I've never come across a travel professional quite like Joanna. She takes such pride in her work and the skill she has in making an itinerary run like clock work is something else. I continue to recommend Joanna to anybody I meet who needs to make travel bookings and will continue to use her services long into the future.

My sister and i went on a five week holiday to Europe last June and were fortunate to hear about Joanna doing travel bookings for people from her home. I had had a couple of bad experiences with well known travel agents so thought I would give Joanna our business. I cannot tell you how thrilled we were with her professionalism, she was always contactable and certainly knew the travel industry. We had a flawless holiday thanks to Joanna and as we travelled through Europe by train thought we would have a couple of hiccups but not one. Since back I have told many people about her and my closest friend is about to depart to Europe having done the bookings through Joanna. She also is very pleased with her. If I'm lucky enough to go overseas again I would be contacting Joanna without hesitation. Thank you Joanna SO much.

In the last two years I have booked three amazing family holidays with Joanna and I cannot thank her enough for getting it right every time! Nothing is ever too much trouble and Joanna has always got back to me straight away with all the information needed to book our overseas holidays. I am more than happy to recommend Joanna!

Joanna recently arranged a trip to Iguazu Falls in Argentina for me, including accommodation,flights and transfers. The whole experience went without a hitch. Great hotels, very efficient and courteous transfer drivers and the flights were all on time. Joanna's recommendation of the place to stay in Buenos Aires and Iguazu were spot on. I'll definitely be contacting Joanna again next time I travel.

Joanna does a great job for me with booking my business flights and accommodation. She makes it so easy that I would never think of doing the books myself every again.

Joanna helped us pick the right accommodation for a recent trip to Cairns/North Queensland. We went with her suggestions and had a fantastic time. The hotel in Cairns and the eco lodge further North were fantastic and fitted absolutely perfectly with what we wanted. Jo is a star travel agent. She knows her stuff and nothing will be too much. Of course you can book things online and direct these days, but Jo adds so much value with her knowledge and connections I would always recommend booking through her. Thanks for a great holiday Joanna!
