Thanks so much to Dana for the great work in organising my trip to Ital. It was such an easy process working with Dana to get it all booked and organised. His diligence, attention to detail, options for travel and sighseeing added so much to the overall enjoyment of the trip. Thank you Dana, Tanie

Just spent ten days at Kalima Resort and Spa. Great hotel with infinity pool, great staff, beautiful views. Got Mr. Kot from Phuket tours to book our trips to Phi phi Islands and then to James Bond Islands. We had two brilliant days out where we went in speedboat, swam, snorkelled, visited a village, ate great food, did canoeing through the caves. Another day he took us to see Big Buddha, temples, cashew factory, karon beaches. All for a very reasonable price and in luxury transport. We flew Singapore Airlines.

Hi Dana, Thanks very much for organising our family trip to Langkawi. All your touches to it such as the aisle to ourselves on the plane, adjoining rooms and the airport transfers were brilliant. It was a fantastic trip for all of us. We all had a great time. The Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort is a great place to stay. We were well looked after and we found the place lovely and peaceful. Access to the main street a block back from the beach was great. Plenty of great eating places in easy reach! Thirstday Bar on the beach was a favourite. And Alun Alun spa also! We'd recommend this holiday for sure. Cheers Trevor

Hi Dana, Thank you once again for another year of great organisation of our girls trip. The flights were great and as usual our regular hotel was great. It is great to see all the same staff year after year when we go.

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Las Vegas and LA, all flights and accommodation booked by Dana. The holiday was a huge success and I personally want to thank Dana from MTA Travel, as I feel it would have been different if it had not been for his professionalism. Due to flight times, I arrived late in the evening for my LA hotel check in and was given their last room available. The room we were given was not as nice as the photos they advertise on their website, for that particular room, and my husband and I were gravely disappointed, considering how much we paid for the accommodation. I called Dana in the morning to inform him of our disappointment and after Dana called the hotel personally and spoke to the front desk manager, we were upgraded to a room at double the cost, but at no extra expense to us. We loved our new room and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in LA after that. Thank you Dana.

Just returned from another great cruise to Japan via Asia - all arranged by Dana. Excellent cruising with Princess and the flights were all timed well. Dana is always helpful and obliging in any request and have booked a few holiday through him which have all been successful without any problems. Would recommend Dana to anyone looking for a reliable, trustworthy travel agent. Thanks again, Dana!!

We had a fantastic cruise which was booked through Dana. I was very worried about some bad reviews on other cruise review websites but Dana assured us it would be fine for our family. He was right! The service and food were excellent. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and wouldn't hesitate to cruise again. Thanks Dana.

Hi Dana, Thank you for booking us a wonderful holiday once again. We had a fantastic time this year. The Room 166 in front of the pool was perfect. Our usual room on the other side with the little pool was not available until the Wednesday, however as soon as we walked into Room 166 I said to the staff we are not moving from here and I will request this room for next year. The staff are so accommodating to us and welcome us so warmly and can’t do enough for us. It is great for us to see the same staff year after year. Dana can you please look out for a special for us for the same time in 2019. Thank you kindly.

Hi, Another FANTASTIC holiday with wonderful accommodation and smooth transfer services thanks to Dana Wilson. Dana suggested all three of our hotels in Vietnam, and guess what.... all three were WONDERFUL!! Great family holiday - number six with Dana, and look forward to booking another one soon. Thanks again Dana, from the Marshall Family.

Dana Wilson is the best travel agent by far All the flights he booked for me were great I asked him if he could book me window seats on all the flights and he did! When I previously asked a travel agent to do that apparently it wasn't possible The wait times between flights was perfect on the longer waits I was able to have some food and check out the shops Great job Dana Lyn

Hello Dana, Thanks for your e-mail, and I'm glad to say my Ghan trip more than lived up to expectations, and the organization by MTA Travel was faultless. The hotel in Darwin was lovely, and transfers by coach to the train went smoothly. The cabins were cosy and well equipped, with 5 star meals throughout, along with immaculate service. Off train excursions were well organized, with a choice of activities at each stopping point. The highlight for me was the Alice Springs visit, as my favourite novel is " A Town Like Alice ", so to see it, and the surrounding outback for real, was a never to be forgotten experience. Also fascinating was the visit to the flying doctor station, which gave me an insight of the vastness of the Australian outback. The journey ended with a midnight bonfire and stargazing, another memorable experience. So, all in all, I had a wonderful time, and look forward to my next adventure, hopefully exploring the Kimberley, organized of course by MTA Travel.

We have just spent 7 nights in the Sutera Magellan Resort in Kota Kinabalu. Everything about this resort was fantastic. We travelled to Singapore on Singapore Airline, then on to Kota Kinabalu. Our resort was only 10 minutes from the airport. We were welcomed into resort as soon as our transport which was included in cost arrived at resort. Staff were so helpful throughout our stay. Our room was a garden view room, very clean. The food was excellent with lots of places to eat and drink. There were five swimming pools, bowling, tennis, badminton, yoga and gym that you could enjoy. They also had a golf course directly across the road. We would highly recommend this resort. Value for money. Thanks Dana for organising our flights.

Hi Dana, Yes thank you us girls had once again a wonderful time and we look forward to you booking us in again around the same time next year. There was a slight issue with our flight home which was nothing to do with you, Garunda had an operational delay. I would like to say our flight booking that you did was excellent and so easy for us just to go straight through. My daughter will be contacting you to get a quote for 6 of us to go to Bali in the July school holidays. I have given your email address to her.

We had a fantastic holiday at Kuredu Island in the Maldives, the staff welcomed us with the sound of their drums! the accomodation was fantastic, a villa over the water with a four poster bed. It was fresh and clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The meals were great, such a variety of food!! the whole experience was awesome, loved to go back! Thanks Dana for booking our holiday, we shall certainly contact you for our next holiday!

We have recently returned from a cruise around Japan all booked by Dana. He makes what can be a stressful time booking trips, very easy. The cruise was fantastic visiting 10 ports including Korsakov in Russia and Busan in Korea and ports in Japan both north and south. I would certainly recommend it and Princess Cruises. We always book our holidays with Dana as he is friendly, knowledgable and above all nothing is too much trouble to him. We were kept up to date with flights etc by the MTA app which is a great help having all our information in one place. Thanks again Dana and thanks for the dinner and coffee!! Look forward to booking with you again soon. 10/10

Thank you for all you help with our recent booking to Borneo! We had an amazing time. The resort was a little outside of Kota Kinabulu which may not suit those wanting to shop in the big city malls, but for peace and relaxation it was perfect. The resort was part of the nexus resort and spa which I would recommend in a heart beat. The trip to Sandakan to see the orangutans was incredible and true once in a lifetime experience. A word of warning to anyone looking to snorkel - we organised a day trip to Manukan Island and it was the worst beach I have ever swam at, polluted, rubbish floating including nappies, visibility so poor that we could not see our own feet. Really expensive and very disappointing. Dont go there! Dana as always you were such a knowledgeable support and thanks again for yet another memorable trip.

Dana from MTA travel went above and beyond our expectations even found out information for diet requirements for us. The Mta travel app was amazing we had updates on our flight that was delayed even before the screen at the gate showed it. Will definitely recommend and use mta again. Thanks

As always, booked through Dana for a 26 day cruise through Asia. Dana is always obliging in every way and can't do enough for you. Great trip, no problems. Looking forward to next one in September, also booked through Dana. Nothing is too much effort for him. Thanks Dana, appreciate it all.

Thanks Dana for organizing our tickets to India, everything went so smoothly. Our holiday to India was definitely a memorable one and one the family will never forget. You were very patient with such a big group of us going but you did it. The only thing that went wrong was that on Malaysia Airlines on the way to India my son did not get the Child's meal as you had requested and my niece did not get her baby meal either but I think that was the Airlines fault. On the way back from India everything that you had requested on the ticket they had fulfilled. Thanks again Dana and we will be contacting you soon with our next holiday destination:)

We arrived home on Saturday morning, our holiday was from 22 to 28 November. Thank you Dana it was fabulous. We had a wonderful time. Novotel Clarke Quay was awesome, the staff are wonderful. We will go back there again next year. The time was perfect and 5 days was long enough. Thank you Dana for suggesting Novotel.

I have used Dana's services on a few occasions now, and I have never been disappointed. He will go out of his way to please you and ensure that you are happy with everything before payment is made. Even after flights have been booked and part of the journey has been done, if you have any changes to make, he will ensure that those changes take effect quickly and smoothly. I will highly recommend anyone to use Dana as he is always tries to please and always has a smile on his face.

Just to let you know we had a fabulous time for our 9 nights at the Swissotel the Stamford at Singapore. Singapore was very tiring as there is so much to do. The hotel had absolutely magnificent views. The room itself had two double beds, and they did bring in a rollaway, which fitted fine. Not as squishy as I thought. The pool area was not extravagant, with only two round pools set amongst a concrete jungle. The location made up for it anyway. The MRT station was very close. You walk out of reception, turn right, walk around one corner (past McDonalds) and you are there! The service at the hotel was good, although we didn’t get to know any of the staff very well as we didn’t have the breakfast included. Whenever we asked for any service, it was quite prompt. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone, especially families. Legoland Resort Malaysia was just another story! 3 nights of fun fun fun! We had kept it as a surprise for the kids and they only knew we were transferring to Malaysia. Then as we drove and we could see the hotel – I said “that is where you are staying”. The kids were so excited, but not as excited as when we went inside and there were two big pits full of lego! The service at check in and check out here was fabulous. The check in was so smooth and easy, they gave us our room an hour early. On checkout at 11am (peak time), they had staff walking up and down the cue asking if people are checking out, so we ‘jumped the cue’, and the transfer to the airport was very prompt and smooth as well. This hotel is heaven for the kids. The rooms are very clean and tidy, but the breakfast is pretty average. It is a small price to pay for the location and fun had by all of us in Legoland and Waterpark. Which are both really good – although smaller than I thought. You practically fall into Legoland from the back of the hotel. We all had a lovely time, and of course, seats on the plane were excellent again – thanks. Please let me know if you want any more info – my brain is fried from all the places we visited, and the trauma of the water slides and rollercoasters :p Thanks again Dana – your name always comes up on our trips to say how fabulous you are!! Best wishes from the Marshall Family -- May 2015

Dana was recommended to us by friends who were very happy with the way Dana worked and was able to arrange their holidays so well. After our first successful holiday arranged by Dana we have just returned from our second successful holiday arranged through Dana, our third holiday is already booked with Dana's expertise. All three holidays were all arranged in the comfort of our own home, We find Dana is very quick to respond to any queries we may have, very attentive, likes to hear feedback, and all in a very proffesional manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending Dana to other travelers. Keep up the good work Dana :)

Super easy way to organise a holiday. Each time we have just told Dana what we want, when, for how long and our price range and then he sends us a good amount of options and we pick the one that suits us, pay it and it's all done. Saves us the hassle of constantly browsing online for the best deals. Thanks!

Having travelled using Dana's expertise before, I knew booking a trip to Bali would be easy but it exceeded my already high expectations! From the ease in booking and payment, to the local recommendations, I felt relaxed for the entire trip knowing we were in good hands. I didn't really have a clear idea in my head of how I wanted the trip to go but Dana's suggestions and knowledge allowed me to plan and create the perfect trip. Highlights definitely included the referral to a local driver who looked after our every need, and the ability to stay in stunning accommodation on a modest budget. I would highly recommend anyone who needs a break to leave it with Dana and he will organize it based completely on your wants and needs. I am already looking forward to the next adventure.

Dana was recommended to us by our son-in-law after he arranged their fabulous honeymoon. Nothing was too much trouble for Dana and he searched several destinations before we decided on our final choice of Club Med, Bali. Everything Dana assured us we would receive at the resort, we did in fact receive. His pleasant demeanour and sense of humour was greatly appreciate as was his attention to detail. We will certainly be using Dana to organise any future trips for us. Thanks Dana.

We've now exclusively used Dana for our travel needs for the last 2 years or more... He is always helpful and doesn't mine if you change details 20 times before finalising your travel plans. Dana's knowledge of so many destinations is fantastic and he offers great options for the trip, be it for destination itself, hire car, travel insurance, hotels.... you name it. If there are nay issues, even while away, I simply drop Dana an email and he takes care of it! Dana has helped us plan trips now to the UK, Bali, Gold Coast and South Africa. Çan't wait for the next one!

Just got home from an amazing trip to New Zealand and America with my young family. With lots of flights, so much to see, so much to do, so many hotels, tours and so many options it was quite overwhelming when planning, especially travelling with young children. Thankfully we had the expertise and patience from Dana, so we were able to book our trip and tours with confidence. Everything ran smoothly and I was able to share a wonderful adventure with my family, creating sensational memories!! Thank you so much Dana!! We are already counting down till our next vacation!! We will be in touch

Dana has been our preferred travel advisor for some years now-- he consistently meets our travel requirements hunting around to get us the best deals. We have travelled all over Asia and Canada all organised by Dana and have just returned from a week at Sengigi Beach, Lombok and a further three weeks in Bali. I have never ever had any problems with flights/ hotel bookings etc when Dana has handled our travel requirements and I would fully recomend him if you want a hassle free holiday at the best possible price.
