Would like to say a very big thank you for making our holiday exactly what it was meant to be - a fun, restful experience which was made easy with MTA taking the stress out of everything from booking flights, accommodation (which were both amazing places), guides which were helpful and informative along our journey to the little things that only you guys would think about. As in my previous travels, I will most certainly be going through MTA Journeys Rediscovered on my next trip and again, I will also be recommending your wonderful service to anyone I know who will be travelling.

Thanks for organising our trip to Phuket. The Movenpick Resort was wonderful and the airport transfers seemless. Thai was a great airline. We had an amazing time and met wonderful people. Highly recommended, Adam Barnes

Thank you Kirsty for organising our European trip. It was so reassuring to know that you understand the needs of travelling with a family and knew the best times for flying, the type of accomodation we needed and the right places to stay. We had a great time, and you took the worry out of organising the logistics. Thanks again!

Chan’s immersion tour to Cambodia was the best! Chan’s insights into Cambodia were terrific and we enjoyed wonderful conversations with Cambodian people that we couldn’t have managed without Chan. These conversations provided the rich tapestry of Khmer life and how positive and wonderful the Khmer people are. Kirsty Thomas-Thoeun, an Asia travel expert, arranged our trip so all we had to do was work out what to wear. We were met promptly and taken to activities with local tour guides that spoke English well and were really informative. The tour was jam-packed with so much to see and experience. I would highly recommend Chan’s immersion tour booked through Kirsty at MTA and when I get to go back to.Cambodia, it will be Kirsty I call. Pam McLeod

Hi Kirsty, I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic holiday we had in Cambodia, thank you for arranging so many places and people for us to visit. Having Chan with us was invaluable, not only because he is such a lovely person (which we knew already), also because his enthusiam for Cambodia and it's people is infectious. We certainly did (and ate) some things that I would not even think of normally, i.e. the bullock ride and it was great to see the work that the NGOs are doing and to meet the people who are benefitting from their work. I think that Cambodias' best asset is the people, they were lovely, so happy and positive which is amazing considering the history. I now know more about Cambodias' history, politics and art scene than I do about Australia. It was an eye opening experience, not just a great holiday. The food was great too, even the bugs ! I would highly recommend "Chan Uoy's Cambodian Immersion Tour" to anyone who would like a trip with a difference. Thank you so much. Kind Regards Shanie

Kirsty always does a great job booking our family holiday. This time it was Singapore. We had a great experience, seamless travel and a wonderful experience at the Shangri-La on Sentosa Island. We particularly liked the personal welcome from the hotel manager she had arranged on our arrival and the extra information she provided was really helpful in deciding where to eat and what to do. Thanks Kirsty!

Hi Kirsty The hoilday you booked was fantastic, and thank you for the lovely bottle of wine you sent to our room in Rome . The tours you booked were great. The colosseum and Vatican City tours were brilliant. The hotel Silken Rambles in Barcelona was in a great spot. Walking distance to everything and the Belnini in Rome was also very nice and central to the Spanish steps and Trevi Fountain .Your new App was fantastic , will the regular updates about our next event was really helpful, The silverseas cruise was outstanding, great food drinks and entertainment . The personalised service was outstanding and would recommend the company to anyone looking to Cruise . Ibezia . Corsica and Monte Carlo are amazing and should be on everyone's holiday list. It's hard to choose what was the best part as the whole holiday was brilliant and you made sure everything went to plan. Which makes the hoilday even more relaxing. We will be booking our next hoilday through you and we will be letting all our friends know how great you were and suggest to them to use your services. Thanks so much M & C

Kirsty helped me organise a surprise trip to Hong Kong for my husband in celebration of our twenty five wedding anniversary. Her recommendation of a hotel and organisation of an upgrade were perfect and we spent a glorious eight days exploring the markets, islands and even a day trip to Macau. Booking through Kirsty made the entire process run smoothly and we were grateful for all the information and tips she gave us on what to do and where to eat. Booking a holiday through Kirsty beats the online process any day!

Kirsty arranged our recent family holiday to Malaysia. We were after something relaxing, easy, child friendly with a little bit of culture thrown in. Kirsty was professional and knowledgable which made the whole process really easy. I doubt I will go back to booking holiday's online myself! Kirsty managed to find us hotel accomodation to suit our needs and budget. The Shangri-la in Kuala Lumpur was particularly impressive. An amazing breakfast and even a maze to help keep our little boy amused. It was easy to access to the Petronis Towers for shopping. I highly recommend Kirsty and I will definitely be using her again.

Kirsty helped me with my travel back to Europe as well as a stopover in Vietnam for a week on my return. She was a joy to work with, full of helpful tips and everything was arranged perfectly. Her insider knowledge is incredibly helpful. I'll definitely be in touch for future travel! Thanks Kirsty!

Thank You Kirsty for an amazing holiday! Your planning was absolutely fantastic despite our crazy work schedules and you having to often wait 24 or more hours for a response from us. All the accommodation was beautiful and the variety of destinations was perfect. Also, the fact that you booked in transfers for us made the whole experience so much less stressful and so smooth. It was so nice to get off a plane or boat and just have someone there to help with the luggage and take us to our next stop - no thinking required on our part (except to find our name on the sheet of paper). We had such a wonderful experience that we did not want to come home. Your advice and help in planning was perfect!! We both especially loved the cooking class in Chiang Mai. We cannot wait to go away again and are looking forward to plan the next trip with you. (Thailand March 2015)

What can I say? This was the most wonderful holiday I have ever been on. We were so relaxed knowing Kirsty was organising the entire trip for us. Kirsty listened to all of our likes and dislikes and managed to book the perfect holiday taking all of this into account. Our guides and drivers were exceptional, attentive and keen to share their country in a more personal tour in every way thanks to Kirsty and her wonderful contacts. We traveled in very clean, comfortable, air-conditioned Mercedes people carriers and even stopped at roadside stalls so we could try new things and extended to advice on the cleanliness and suitability of restrooms along the way, recommending which ones would be the best for us. Much appreciated! When you are going to be away in a country for 15 days and have no idea what to expect, you rely heavily on your travel agent to help you have the best experience possible and we were not disappointed. Our accommodation was perfect and, thanks to Kirsty's organisation, most had pools so we could relax with a nice cold drink after a full day of sight seeing in the humid weather. Kirsty went above and beyond in her 'Kit' we received before we went. We had lists of: Restaurants, sights to see, what to tip who, maps of the towns and cities, shopping hints etc. Thanks so much for all of your hard work and care in planning this trip for us. I can't recommend Kirsty highly enough to all. Kerrie and Stephen Borrie (Cambodia March 2015)

Thank you Kirsty for being a fantastic travel agent and making the planning stage of our holidays such an enjoyable experience. You always listen to our requests and search for the best deals for us. We appreciate your suggestions, prompt replies and the fact that you visit us at home to talk to us and deliver our documents. We had an amazing holiday to the Caribbean. Our 42 days cruising with Princess through the delightful Caribbean islands concluding with the amazing Panama Canal transit to Los Angeles were brilliant. You are so well looked after we didn't want to get off the ship! We were lucky to experience the Emerald Princess, the Royal Princess and the Island Princess as well as the many fascinating destinations along the way. We are so happy to be able to share our joy of travel with you and we look forward to you booking many more holidays for us in the future. Thank you for everything, Sue and Keith Richardson.
