Only glitch was the lift from the airport to our hotel which I don't think was your fault!
Everything ran like clockwork
Karl was amazing and patient.
We had a lovely holiday in Palma - thank you Julie and Sarah for organising - all went smoothly. Looking forward to our trip to Washington DC which you have also organised
Ever friendly and efficient. Many thanks.
Can't think of any ways of improving - already excellent
Personal touch and professionalism
Exodus changed the group flight arrival time and I don’t think they told you? So there was a bit of hassle meeting up.
Fabulous all round. Thank you.
Easyjet have zero customer service at Tenerife airport. My flight was delayed by nearly 8 hours and we were treated abysmally by the very few easyjet staff that did eventually appear. Appalling lack of customer relation skills displayed by this company.
Could not have asked for more excellent service
You did it again! Lovely hotel, just in the right place for amenities. Excellent bus routes, lovely restaurants.
Trip was the best weekend getaway from start to finish. Aaron tailored the flights so that we could get the most out of our time in Barcelona. The hotel was in an ideal location!
Great service from Russell yet again making it a stress free trip.
Very good service

Great service as usual from the incomparable Tango and her team !
Everything was fine until our luggage was delayed from Stockholm for 24hrs. But we’ve got it back now. Heathrow airport delivered it back to our house.
Molly is always super helpful. Appreciated that she did the return check in for me and sent Boarding Pass by email
100% as always. Thanks Adam!

Great holiday and all as promised
A really first class service from initial booking to smoothing any difficulties that arise.
Kylie was great. Really cared about our holiday. Will book with her again
The long transition from war zone to fashionable holiday place has happened several times before, but never perhaps with such pace and style as that accomplished by Vietnam and Cambodia.
Until relatively recently Vietnam's Mekong Delta summoned up thoughts of the epic 1979 war movie Apocalypse Now, in which Martin Sheen's soldier journeys upriver on a patrol boat in search of a renegade officer played by Marlon Brando.
A BIT ABOUT THE MEKONG
The Mekong played a key role in the war. Former US Secretary of State John Kerry commanded a Swift patrol boat on the river 50 years ago - he was so appalled by what he saw during his period of combat that he became a fervent anti-war campaigner. He subsequently entered politics, becoming the Democratic nominee for President in 2004.
Last year, Kerry returned to the Delta and discovered that the free-fire zone he had served in was now the starting point for one of the world's great cruising experiences.
The 2,700-mile Mekong begins as snowfall on the Tibetan plateau among the Himalayas - and ends at the Mekong Delta in Vietnam where it flows into the sea. Like most rivers, through history it has been a source of life and hope. Its waters play a vital part in irrigation: in the Mekong Delta the rice fields thrive because of it. Politically, it acts as a border between countries - it passes through six.
ALONG THE RIVER
A Vietnam and Cambodia river trip needs at least a fortnight to do it justice - beginning for example in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, and ending in Siem Reap near the extraordinary Angkor temple complex. A highlight of any trip here is to watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat.
As with most river cruises, a key attraction is the service on board. Much sought after is the cuisine of Luke Nguyen - an acclaimed chef, author and TV personality who serves his own brand of local cuisine paired with quality wines. In Ho Chi Minh City, passengers can enjoy an exclusive dinner at the stylish Xu restaurant, inspired by Luke, with a range of exquisite dishes that offer a contemporary take on traditional Vietnamese favourites.
There is also the possibility of having a Vietnamese cooking class on some boats, as well as a dance show by children from a local orphanage, a water blessing by a monk and a visit to a local farmer's home.
Guests can visit the Cu Chi tunnels, which were used by the Viet Cong. There is also a chance to enjoy the Rex Hotel, famous as the place where during the Vietnam War the American military command held its daily news conference, referred to by war correspondents as the Five O'Clock Follies thanks to the absurd optimism of the American officers. The Rex's rooftop bar was a well-known hangout for military officials and war correspondents.
There are more harrowing reminders of troubled times in Cambodia, where tours are available from Phnom Penh to the Killing Fields at the village of Choeung Ek, the site of a Buddhist memorial to the victims and a genocide museum commemorating the genocide.
A memorial park has been built around the mass graves of many thousands of victims, most of whom were executed after interrogation at the S-21 Prison in Phnom Penh. Tuol Svay Pray High was turned into a torture, interrogation and execution centre. Of the 14,000 people known to have entered, only seven survived.
But the most memorable feature for most visitors will be arriving at Siem Reap, from which tours depart to Angkor Wat.
Siem Reap used to be a stopping-off point. Thanks to the growth in tourism it has become a destination in its own right. It has attracted a burgeoning community of Cambodian and international artists: the Angkor Wat International Film Festival, for example, has become a major event.
The prime attraction, however, is the temple complex at Angkor Wat, where you will be taken to watch the sunrise. The temples are on top of a hill; on arrival you will enjoy a fabulous view over Tonle Sap lake, the Kulen Plateau and paddy fields.
Built more than 1,000 years ago, the temple is beautiful, particularly when the frangipani trees are
