Sandy's clients sharing their experiences
Michelle Ward

I booked what I called "A Holiday Of A Lifetime" with Sandy and I am so pleased I did. Overall the holiday ran smoothly but we did have a couple of hiccups that were quickly addressed and resolved. Sandy was available and professional the entire step of the way. My family and I had a fabulous time and I am sure we have made lasting memories for our children. Japan is an amazing place. If you can only go to one theme park chose Disneysea and if you have ever thought of skiing overseas chose Hakuba. If you need an outstanding travel agent with a great depth of knowledge,chose Sandy Sirianni. Thank you Sandy, we absolutely loved our trip xx

Ovation of the Seas - 10Day NZ Cruise Boxing Day 2019 - 5 Jan 2020 Sandy certainly makes the process easy and wonderful. Once we'd decided on the desitination, the rest was easy. As I have family in NZ, I asked the question, can we get off in Picton and pick the ship back up again in a couple of days in Wellington? Easy, done, sorted, with a nominal fee from Royal Carribean. Speaking with other Cruisers, they would've liked this option OR the option that others did, getting off in Dunedin and coming over to Queenstown and being tendered back to the boat in Milford. These are things that when you book yourself you don't get to ask these, make these extra add ons that make your holiday even better and it's not personal. We had an amazing room, traveling with my son, I was a little concerned about cabin size, by booking early, we had an exceptional cabin, awesome balcony and plenty of room for both us. I'll certainly be using Sandy for all my travel, plans are in place for our next holiday. Yes you can book yourself, contrary to popular thoughts, it's more expensive to use an agent, Sandy gets the same deals as what we can get online, so why not use Sandy, with her wealth of expertise, knowledge, professionalism and genuineness to ensure that we as her clients have the best, stress free holidays ever. Sandy, I can't thank you enough for the all the wonderful organisation and enuring that we had a seamless holiday.

We experienced a 100% successful and brilliant holiday without any hiccups. The organisation was fantastic. The Princess Cruise line is the only one to use. The Majestic was a first class ship. Thanks to Sandy for organising every thing. Will be going to other destinations with the two of them.

My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous trip organised by Sandy. We went to the Baltic states and then followed that cruise by a Mediterranean one. 25 days of cruising with the magic Pacific Princess. From our first contact to our welcome home email we could not have asked for a more professional encounter. Thanks for all the backup reminders about flights and hotels. Would thoroughly recommend Sandy to anyone contemplating an overseas holiday without glitches!

Sandy planned our trip down to the last detail, in France and the UK for 5 weeks, everything went smoothly to time and connections. We had as fabulous time and would recommend Sandy any time to plan your next trip. We received many supportive notices from Sandy and MTA about connections and times via emails, which was a great help. Thanks Sandy we will not hesitate to use you again for our next overseas trip or local trips. Kind regards Lesley & Steve.

Thanks Sandy for all of the wonderful trips ..we have booked through you..whether Domestic or International. We have often had to make changes to bookings due to unforeseen circumstances but nothing phases Sandy she just gets on with it. Sandy is reliable, knowledgeable, she actually cares about each trip we do. She is always so supportive and a delight to deal with. Should be more like her.. always so positive and upbeat.

We wanted to send you a very big thank you Sandy, for organising our recent travel to Europe. We have just returned from a fantastic 8 weeks travelling to Italy, Slovenia, France and Amsterdam as well as cruising the Mediterranean on the Crown Princess. All flights and accomodation were excellent and everything went smoothly. If you are wanting a travel agent who is efficient, knowledgable, understanding (to the challenges of travelling as an amputee) and is on the ball then you can't go past Sandy.

Well, I have taken a while to write my testimonial to you, because I had no idea where to start...How can I begin to thank you for the amazing memories my sons and I will cherish for a lifetime? Everything you recommended was absolutely what I was looking for... and so much more! the guides you booked for us were engaging and very knowledgeable. My sons were able to ask questions and learn about the amazing cultures, religion, history of Vietnam and Cambodia. They were immersed in the environment and welcomed everywhere we went. The guides were respectful, kind and wonderful with the boys, bringing knowledge to their level of understanding, The accommodation you booked for us was perfect. Away from the busses of tourist chaos, but still in the centre of the older parts of the cities - which is exactly what we wanted. Hanoi was great, and highly recommend the street food trail tour, which we ended up doing as a lunch tour rather than evening. Halong Bay and the Pelican Boat was AMAZING! Hoi An was a definite highlight and a place that I would like to return to. The hotel was perfectly positioned in the old quarter close to the traditional fishing and farming village. The bike tour we did was great and highly recommend it. The big surprise of our trip was Danang and the Golden Bridge tour, which we ended up just booking through the hotel reception. We all expected to travel from Hoi An to see a bridge, but what we experienced that day I know will stay with my sons forever. travelling on a magnificent skyrail to get to the bridge which was awe inspiring, but then to continue on up the mountain to what can only be described as a fairytale location with French castles, amazing gardens and breathtaking views. We continued on up the mountain yet again on the third arm of the skyrail to then be confronted with Disneyland in Vietnam. A huge surprise to everyone with us and an incredible day! Really recommend making the trip to the Golden Bridge. All that you booked for us in HoChi Min City was perfect and the hotel was centrally located which made it easy for us to explore the city. Siem Reap was beautiful and again another location that I can not wait to return to. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and very engaging with my sons, which encouraged them to ask questions and learn about the culture and history of Cambodia. Bun, our guide there was in himself a highlight to our trip. He really went above and beyond what was expected to ensure that we saw and experienced as much as possible of his beautiful country. He took us to a traditional local market just so the boys could try scorpion, snake, beetles… definitely something they will never forget. He also took us off the beaten track to temples where the bus loads of tourists did not venture, making our experience at the Angkor Temples a very special one. Sandy, I cannot thank you enough for organising this trip for me and for helping me give my sons the experience I was looking for. xxx

We appreciate your tireless efforts & positive enthusiasm in sorting our flights with the challenging parameters given for our travel. You went beyond all expectations in finding what we needed and communicated with me in what should have been your personal time.

Thanks so much Sandy for an absolutely amazing trip away to the Philippines with my 10 year old son! Your professionalism, back up service and availability was second to none and more importantly, knowing that if anything might be untoward (especially in a third world country) you had my back and were ready and able to help. Highly recommend booking any international trip through this fantastic travel agent, who's knowledge and experience will absolutely ensure the most secure and seamless holiday 10/10.

Hi Sandy, Thanks you so much for organising flights and accommodation for my recent trip to Europe. The accommodation choices you recommended in both Dubai and Zurich were fabulous, great value for money and totally in keeping with my vague description of my needs to you! The hotel in Dubai was close but not too close to the airport an in an interesting area so great for a short stopover. The one on Zurich was perfect so close to the museums, the tourist attractions, the shops and the train station. Loved the quirkiness of this hotel too! You are amazing!!!

Thanks Sandy. We had an amazing time in Africa and appreciate you responding to email queries and allaying our fears about flight connnections even when you were overseas yourself.

Thank you Sandy , everything was planned perfectly! We thought we would plan and organise everything outselves , ran out of time and less than 2 weeks prior to departure Sandy saved our holiday , also making last minute changes for us whilst on her holiday. The choice of hotels were great, we had no hiccups. Thank you, you work magic !!!

If you are reading this then you are already probably using Sandy's talents, if you are not then you should do without hesitation...we recently had 3 weeks in India which Sandy put together and it was a great experience, however we did have a problem with a sub standard hotel which was booked by a company in India and not Sandy directly, I made contact with Sandy upon check in, and even though Sandy was overseas at the time, bless her, the problem was fixed almost immediately for which I am very grateful for her help and support from the other side of the world, well done Sandy, keep up the great work, talk soon..

A huge thank you to Sandy Sirianni for helping to make our American holiday so great. We were convinced we could book and manage our travel on our own, however after trying to organize flights I realized I needed the help of a professional. Sandy made the experience very easy and went above and beyond to offer not only professional advice, but her own personal holiday experiences. Next time we won't waste time, we'll contact Sandy straight away. I recommend her services very highly :)

Sandy has long been our family's agent of choice. She has sent us on some amazing trips and always gets everything just right. On the odd occasions where things do go a bit wrong (strikes, delays, sickness), she is only a call away and manages to sort everything quickly and efficiently for us. We love that she listens to what we like and recommends just the right hotels and experiences. She even helped when I stuffed up my own booking, I will never do that again, cost me more money to fix than if she had just sorted it for me in the first place. I learnt my lesson! Book with Sandy, she's fantastic.

The Hilton family have been more than happy with the service given by Sandy.Fast, efficient, and she really knows her stuff. Having organised our last 5 holidays overseas, what can one say? We had an absolute ball, with Sandy even recommending little extras, that she knows we will enjoy and not want to miss out on. Getting Sandy to organise and book our holidays, is one less stressful thing I need to worry about. She seems to read my mind (scary really), but she knows the sought of things our family likes, from accomodation to shows, trips etc.I do not think, she could ever disappoint.
