Marion is very helpful, reliable and trustworthy. She goes out of her way to find things out. I found her extremely knowledgeable on the type of travel I chose and the destination I wanted to visit. I was so surprised at her expertise on travel as I am not used to dealing with such experienced travel agents. Would highly recommend. She can answer all your questions and organise all your travel needs. She will always go the extra mile to make your trip perfect

Thanks so much again to Marion for organising our holiday on this special cruise. We had a marvellous trip. Indonesia was a surprise - how diverse and historical, and beautiful it was. We loved it! It is a great destination. The itinerary for this cruise was perfect for us, and allowed us to get a good taste of Indonesia. It was also good having 3 days at sea at the beginning and end. A highlight was the private tour by Exo Travel to Borobudur Temple on Java, from Port Semarang. It was such good value for money - we were VERY HAPPY!!!! We loved Borobudur. We had 2 full hours walking over it - and the guide made it so interesting. We learned a great deal from him. It is truly awe inspiring. Everyone should try to see this wonder of the world if you are in Java. Our guide was very knowledgeable, helpful, professional and welcoming. The driver was also excellent!!! He got us there in 2 hours - about an hour faster than the other cruise shore excursions. Also we saw 2 other temples, Pawon and Mendut. We got back to the ship in plenty of time and with no worries. The lunch at a beautiful Plataran resort/spa, looking across a valley to Borobudur was very special, and the food was 5 star!!!! We can highly recommend Exo Travel - They were worth every cent. We are so glad we did it this way. We had a much better experience than the cruise shore excursion tour passengers. We would use them in future at other destinations instead of the cruise organised tours. Another great surprise was the town of Makassar (Ujung Pandang) on Sulawesi. A lovely bustling city to walk around with historic Fort Rotterdam, the Terong traditional Markets and Paotere harbour with its massive colourful traditional fishing boat fleet. The other 3 islands, Komodo with it's dragons, Lombok with its rice fields, countless motorcycles and picturesque rice fields, and Bali with its myriad of temples were also interesting, worthwhile destinations where we learned a lot about present day life in Indonesia as well as its history, and diverse religion centred culture. We now understand so much more about Indonesia and its people.

Back from another holiday which Marion helped arrange. Hotels were great standard and location. When I decided to make a change last minute (at the airport) Marion went the extra mile and made the changes which all worked perfectly. Thank you yet again !!!!

We’ve just returned from a wonderful holiday planned by Marion. Each location of the hotels that we stayed in was perfectly located and beautiful. Everything ran like clock work and we cannot thank her enough! She was on call when we needed her and will definitely use her services again. Thank you Marion! Xx

As a very frequent traveler , we would always use Flight Center or The Travel associates to book our many holidays. BUT after using Marion, everything was on point and we would never use them again after using Marion. From the little messages to see how our trip was going, it was very touching and very personal. It was nice to have a holiday trouble free. Marion went out of her way to make sure that we had the best holiday possible! Hats off to you Marion. We have no problem at all to recommend her services to anyone.

I would like to publicly thank Marion for her help with my trip to France. I decided within 24 hrs notice to travel to France and Marion arranged everything with ease - when I was in France - I’d email her with more requests for accommodations and tours ( would have been all through the night for Marion in aust ) and Marion would reply and work it out for me with straight away, and happily. As I don’t speak French, it was a relief to have Marion on the other end of the phone speaking to the French tour guides and arranging travel from one town to the next. I will definitely be asking Marion to arrange my next trip ! Ps. I also had the best seats on my flights - I think Marion had everything to do with that too. Thanks Marion - could not have had such an easy trip without you. Michele Hockings

As our travel agent, cruise master Marion has booked our travel arrangements for more than 10 years. In that time, we have enjoyed about 20 cruises, flights and associated land trips. Currently we also have 2 more cruises booked through Marion to look forward to. Not once in all these voyages have we had any problems with our bookings. One of our best experiences during these years was travelling through Marion's homeland of France.

If you desire a perfectly orchestrated international holiday, then you have no other option than to seek out Marion Picot. About herself an inveterate traveller, she knows all ‘the ropes’ so why trust another... I wouldn’t!
