I wanted to celebrate my best friend's 50th birthday in style while staying in Sydney. Sarah not only gave me options but provided excellent service all the way through from booking to arriving back home. Sarah arranged for the special touches like cheese and wine in the room, AND we were upgraded to a full harbour view room, with breakfast, early & late check-im, and $100 US credit to spend on food or drinks. If you are looking a trip to anywhere, I highly recommend booking with Sarah!!

People ask "Why do you go to a travel agent when you could do it yourself online?" The answer is "Sarah!" She knows so much, She always follows up. She is ultra reliable. She takes all the worry out of travel. She booked us onto the Bravo music cruise. She checked our documents were in order, chose a cabin close to the lifts and amidships (so much more stable) and found our frequent traveller numbers from a trip made two years ago. The trip was everything she promised. Great acts and food this is the cruise for people who would like a wonderful music experience without the hassle of getting to the theatre. Thanks Sarah.

Always a pleasure to deal with Sarah. She is such an expertise in her field and when it comes to figuring out what you really need she can read you !! And she gets it right. Thanks again Sarah for your wisdom and helping with our fantastic little trip to Melbourne.

I've just returned from 3 weeks in Europe. Our hotels, transfers and tour guides were all booked through Sarah and they were all superb. With only a few days in each city we visited, Sarah booked us into locations that were right in the middle of the old towns we wanted to see, even closer than many of the big chain hotels. The results were pure magic! We stayed in boutique hotels that were once part of castles and palaces. We even had a guest house that was brand new in the gorgeous Plitvice lakes area. The pre-arranged transfers were always neat, tidy and on time. With a half day pre-booked tour in most cities we arrived in (to get the lay of the land) we found the guides were so good we booked more tours!. The guided city tours are a great way to learn about a city without bumbling around working things through on your phone. We were able to avoid crowds and hear first hand tips of what to do after we left our tour. It's a great balance of having a guide, but also having enough alone time so you've got that freedom with your travel companion to explore. The MTA travel app is also a great way to hear if there's a flight delay or to check you're still on time for a transfer. This is the second big trip I've booked through Sarah and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah. She is very thorough and listens to what you want, then delivers. I'm now planning my next trip to the Caspian sea area and I plan to book through Sarah again.

Just returned from our first "White Christmas in the Canadian Rockies" and its was nothing short of fantastic which I put down the the great organisation by Sarah! We new what we wanted to do and she put it all together for smooth sailing. We have highly recommended Sarah's expertise to many friends and family and they too have taken advantage of Sarah's worldly travel knowledge and relate-ability to your needs " she gets you"! With 8 days to see and do what one expects to do for a White Christmas delivered exceptional service from the Fairmont Accommodation in Banff and Lake Louise to the activities that we experienced that has given us memories of a lifetime; dog-sledding with Kingmik; such dedication to their Husky's, snowshoeing to Marble Canyon and Ice-walking in Johnston Canyon with Discover Banff Tours did not disappoint. We even had all our transfers - not miss a beat from Brewsters and of course our Flight service with Air Canada completed or journey. Yes, we did see Santa's Suite at the Fairmont including Santa and Mrs Claus (recommend this for families for sure) Thanks for your excellence as always Sarah, Robyn and Katrina.

What a fabulous family holiday Sarah organised for us. A trip to the Gold Coast QLD was just what the family needed. From the first moment we touched base Sarah was absolutely amazing. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable and had loads of helpful advice. The accommodation, a 2 bedroom apartment was perfect, it had everything we needed. The flights fabulous and hassle free, Sarah was able to lock in exactly what we were after. The car hire was fuss free...The whole trip was amazing. We all enjoyed the theme parks in fact we had trouble getting the boys off the roller coasters. Sarah we will recommend you to everyone we know and continue to use you for all our future travel arrangements. Thank you so much for making our short family holiday with teenagers enjoyable for all. Your efforts are much appreciated.

I am so pleased to have Sarah as my personal travel go to. Great communication and nothing was a problem and everything organized so well. The cruise to New Zealand was fantastic for 13 nights. We only had rough seas for one day coming home. Sarah has already organized our next cruise and we love her work. Thanks does not seem enough to appreciate you. Thank you Sarah for all your work.

Traveling for Ella’s sport at such a busy time of year was a breeze because of you Sarah. Everything was so organized and great communication. It enabled us to enjoy family time because everything was already taken care of. I loved the app on my phone with all my documents at the ready. We can’t thank you enough Sarah very much appreciated.

We had a great time! It wouldn't have happened without all the preliminary work you put in Sarah, so thank you so much! We couldn't have seen all those amazing places, like Norway's Flam Railway, or Budapest's beautiful Parliament House from the Danube without your guidance and support. Go to Huszar Restaurant in Budapest for a great local dishes, visit the old towns of Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn, enjoy Berlin's Oktoberfest and have a fantastic holiday like we did! It was just bad luck that Europe had to experience the Australian weather throughout their summer and have low water in the rivers! Next time we'll experience the cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest!!!!

Sarah did a fabulous job in finding and booking flights and bus travel in UK also hotels which suited my needs. Would thoroughly recommend her. Will not hesitate to book further travel with her.

I'd recommend Sarah without a doubt. We had been planning our Disneyland trip for a LOOOONG time and she still gave us great advice and better prices than we could find online. We had so many great memories and will be planning another trip to try to overcome the holiday hangover. Thanks Sarah!

We had a great time. Sarah made the planning very easy to plan. My husband has mobility issues, Sarah was able to cater to that. The locations were well discribed and the added information regarding events and things to do in each area was very helpful Thank you Sarah!

I highly recommend booking a holiday through Sarah. Firstly the price she got our family for our trip was lower than any prices I could find on line. She even rang me on a Sunday evening before our trip to check if I had packed our passports & tickets - Which I was actually super glad for because I had forgotten our boarding passes.

01 February 2018 at 04:25 pm

You have made our lives so much easier with your recommendations and bookings for our holidays this year. The Bravo Cruise was another highlight . While we are not addicted to cruising (as some people we met are) the music tour was simply fabulous with great singing, orchestra and all the normal things that go with a short Pacific cruise. So Sarah thanks again for all your help and expertise - Don't know where we might end up next year but if we need help from a travel agent you are the best.

Hey Sarah - got back last nite, and honestly wish I could stay there! The place and people are beautiful, with so much sadness lying just under the surface. I couldn't have asked you to do much more for basically a first time traveller. I had an amazing time. THANKYOU! I have already decided I want to go back next year, but to delve a little deeper. I would love you to help me out with that if you are interested

James & I are very pleased that we have personal travel agent to help us with our cruises and getaways. We enjoyed our few days away on the Explorer where we found staff polite and courteous. Had a great room with superb views of the ocean. I would highly recommend Sarah for your travel needs. Looking forward to our next organised getaway. Thanks Sarah

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in the NT. From the early planning stage right through to the last day everything went to plan, no problems at all. We had ample time in Darwin to explore at our leisure and we also had a number of tours planned for us by Sarah. The accommodation at all destinations that Sarah chose were all very good, comfortable and clean. The flight over Kakadu is a must do, and by far our highlight of the trip was spending a day in Arnhemland with Arnhemland Cultural tours. We were taken into some beautiful areas and caves by an excellent guide, highly recommend this group. We would also highly recommend Sarah and thank her for putting all the pieces together for our trip. Came home tired but had a wonderful time, thanks agin Sarah

Thanks a million Sarah - we had one of the best holidays of our lives. Everything you organised worked well and the connections were seamless - Anaheim/Utah/San Francisco/Hawaii - fantastic. For us the highlight was the Muir Woods National Park in San Francisco - a cathedral, incredibly beautiful and peaceful. My tip - arrive before 8am in the morning so you can get parking close to the entrance and get to enjoy the woods before the masses of tourists arrive. Thanks again - you're awesome!

Thanks so much for organising our little weekend getaway with our kids. It was so simple, we told you what we wanted to do in Sydney, and you found us beautiful accommodation with easy access to everything!! Our kids loved the experience of being in a "fancy hotel" and absolutely loved going to the Zoo. Thanks so much again, we'll definitely come back to book our next trip xxx

20 September 2016 at 12:32 pm

Thankyou for organising our last few trips - you made everything run very smoothly. Hope to book another soon!
