Chris Prouting is an outstanding travel agent. He has organised a couple of trips for me and his attention to detail is amazing. He listens to what you want in your trip and makes it happen. His vast personal travel experience also enables him to suggest options you wouldn’t normally think about. His communication with me about a COVID delayed trip in regard to refunds and rebooking was reassuring and I would unhesitatingly recommend his services.

Chris Prouting from MTA is the most genuine person I have had the pleasure to meet and work with in many years. In my many years I have traveled around the world several time . After meeting Chris at a Concert by chance ,We asked Chris to plan our last holiday. I am in a power wheelchair and have trouble seeing accessing things to see what the world has to offer . We ask Chris to help us to see Tasmania at its best and all the natural beauty. We had so much fun and went places I never thought I could go ,thanks to Chris. Because of corona we were unsure of moving from state to state and needed Chris supports , he was always able to help us with smile in his voice

Where do I begin? I cannot express how much value I have found in Chris as a travel agent and mentor. He has made our travel experiences so much better and easier and has a wealth of knowledge. I used to do all of our arrangements myself online but now I will always enlist Chris, especially for any international travel. His experience and contacts are impeccable. His ability to foresee potential hiccups and make suggestions on how to minimise these. The little touches he adds along the way. For every experience, Chris has been able to foresee our needs, offer his input, and has always overdelivered. I would not use anyone else.

Chris is just fantastic - always able to suggest great options and assist when problems arise. He is always on the lookout for a good deal and his suggestions are well researched and thought through. We have used Chris for several years now and wouldn't use anyone else.

Chris has organised a few trips for me now and I have found him easy to work with and always looking for the best options for my requests.

Chris, is fantastic to work with. Even though we changed our round the world itinerary on many occasions he was not phased and worked hard to find the best prices and accommodation. At the end of the day he saved us thousands of dollars and made sure everything worked smoothly. Chris even took the time to keep in touch during our trip in case there was anything else he could help us with. We are already talking to Chris about our next trip to the Greek Islands and the Maldives.

I have used Chris's services on several occasions to book my flight and accommodation requirements for trips related to my business. He always answers the call with a smile in his voice and if he can't take the call he will get back ASAP. Chris has been exceptionally helpful with ideas of where to stay and what to do in between events and is always in touch with you whilst you are away checking to see that all is going well. He goes out of his way to find the best deals and connections for which I am very grateful. I have found him to be very professional in all my dealings with him.

Chris Prouting is a thoroughly professional travel agent who bends over backwards to ensure that the holiday you want is booked and followed up. Our cruise on the Majestic Princess to New Zealand and back was a delight; when the original booking information came through, Chris was concerned that we didn't have a cabin assignment so he rang Princess Cruises to find out why. The reason - we got a cabin upgrade to a superior balcony cabin. If only the weather had been as cooperative as Chris has been - our itinerary had to be altered because the south of the South Island was about to be battered by gale force winds; although we didn't get to Port Chalmers (Dunedin) or Fiordland, we did get see Picton and sail through the Cook Strait instead. This is not the first time we have booked a holiday through Chris - in 2016, we had a brilliant time in Hawai'i, staying in Honolulu, including a day trip to the Big Island to see Kilauea. Chris arranged our accommodation in a great apartment within walking distance (1 block) from the major bus routes. Thanks Chris.

I have used MTA travel several times for overseas and domestic travel to book flights, hotels and even the Indian Pacific train for my mum! Chris has been able to provide great first hand travel advice to help with decision making. He has handled travel for solo travelling and our family travelling. He has even assisted when we were overseas to help when we needed it. His gregarious nature makes it easy to plan and organise complicated travel arrangements with ease.

At short notice because that's how we roll at times, we contacted Chris to see what deal he could get us for a cruise on our favorite ship- Ovation of the seas :) not only did we get an excellent deal for a triple share room, we got a great onboard credit deal and Chris went above & beyond to assist us with some out of the box requests that were no trouble for him to deal with. Chris always gives fantastic service & I can't wait for my next adventure. I know......Who I'm gonna call!!!

We met Chris on a cruise, at a time when I was starting to think about a planned trip to Africa to attend my daughters wedding in Cape Town. My partner had no desire to go as she had no interest in the long flights or the strange foreign land. But Chris had such contagious enthusiasm about Africa that her mind was completely changed, to the point that she was determined not to miss out on the experience. And so it was that Chris came to look after the flights for our little group of 4 people, and to make all of the arrangements for a couple of weeks of fantastic adventure around Victoria Falls and Botswana en route to Cape Town. Always one to take things to the top level, Chris managed to fit us in for a night at the fantastic Gorges Lodge outside Victoria Falls. Superb. And in a country not noted for great organisation, everything went like clockwork. The attention to detail that Chris put in paid off in spades. And the great communication skills that are always on display make it so easy to work with Chris. Phone calls. Emails. Nothing is too much trouble. Thanks heaps from 4 very happy people who had fantastic holiday. PS The wedding was beautiful too, but I can't pin that on Chris.

I recommend Christopher Prouting to you as a highly experienced and competent travel agent. He was able to listen intently to my aspirations and dreams when planning overseas adventures and he has a wealth of knowledge and experience which he used to ensure holiday success for me. I admired his attention to detail, his knowledge of rules and regulations and his willingness to be my backup when challenges presented. I would willingly put my trust in Christopher Prouting again, to plan further perfect adventures. A heartfelt thankyou to Christopher.

This was my first big trip overseas and i cannot compliment enough how fantastic a time i had the trip was planned to perfection the places were amazing that Chris had booked for me. There was no problems with anything all travel transfers and accommodation were perfect. Chris was only a call away ready to help with anything. i would not hesitate to refer anyone to MTA and will myself seek Chris for advice and booking with any other travel in the future.

My trip consisted of 8 flights, 10 transfers, 1 cruise, two fast trains, 7 hotels and 4 guided tours. My biggest concern was remembering what i had to do next. Chris made this amazingly simple. The Itinerary was very detailed yet simple to follow. everything had a separate voucher which was numbered and grouped. All I had to do was show up on time. It could not have been simpler. Chris was available any time I had a concern, despite the time difference. I had an amazing holiday thanks to Chris's meticulous preparation. I cannot recommend him highly enough. I will be using Chris again for my next vacation

I have always found Chris Prouting from MTA travel to go above and beyond in helping me with my travel arrangements. He always works towards not only finding me a great deal but also great connections. On occasions while travelling overseas we have had challenges. No matter how difficult he has assisted us through it at ungodly hours. I couldn't recommend him high enough for all that he has done.

I have used Chris now for many years and have nothing but wonderful things to say. Nothing is too much trouble or bother and he is a wealth of knowledge. I wouldn't risk booking any international travel without the services of an experienced travel professional and Chris is our 'go to' all the time. Highly recommended.

Having used the services of Chris Prouting of MTA to book flights & a cruise, I will NOT go back to trying to do it all myself. Chris took care of ALL the fine details (& there were a few as my companion had mobility issues). Chris offers an exceptional service as he really listens to what you want & need. Nothing was too much trouble & Chris was efficient & professional. I highly recommend his services & will definitely be using them again.
