Travel Review

I just wanted to express a massive thank you. We had a fabulous time! Everything was absolutely awesome - every hotel, ticket, etc., all completely streamlined without any issues. We are looking to go back next year around the same time, so I will be in touch with dates (very similar to the ones this year).

Thank you again. I am so chuffed that I have found my travel agent. Thanks!

I am lost for words to tell you how much we appreciate all your efforts to help us.

John and I are fully aware your time spent and your weekend you gave up to get us on that plane. The situation was changing by the hour. Oslo was like a ghost town. It was very hard to make decisions quickly but once bookings started to either change or cancel, the decision to come home was easy.

We met a couple at the airport who arrived trying to change their ticket from Saturday flying to Melbourne. They had come off the Hurtigruten and had said even then they were not allowed off the ship at all to visit the ports. I think the cruise line could maybe have posted their intentions earlier if for the whole week previously they were restricting the cruise. The couple also said they had rung and emailed their travel agent in Melbourne for help but because it was the weekend, absolutely no response at all. So we had great pleasure in sprouting we had the best travel agent ever and we shall be sprouting to our friends and relatives and whoever else will listen (including my daughter) the pros of booking through you.

Once again thanks so much. We will pop in and see you when this two week hiatus is over.

While normally we undertake self-guided travel, we opted to join the Carine Travel Bug tour of India and we are very glad we did! India is a fascinating but also confronting country. The tour allowed us to immerse ourselves in the culture and visit far-flung historical and religious sights in comfort and with peace of mind. The sector on the Luxury Palace on Wheels train was very enjoyable with all our requirements, on-board and off, met quickly and effortlessly. The additional days in Varanasi and Mumbai took us out of the "cocoon" of the train and allowed us to deep-dive into these cities. We really only scratched the surface of India in our 12 days there, so certainly there is much more yet to see. We would strongly recommend that you put India on your 'wish-list' and when you are ready to go, speak to Sue and her team at Carine Travel Bug on the options you have.

We have just come back from the Mekong river cruise and would like to thank Sue and Leanne for the best holiday ever. What a fantastic time we had. Everything was organised and went off without a hitch. Thanks to Sue and Leanne we will be using your services again.

Your award was well deserved, and we probably haven’t told you enough just how every holiday you have arranged and booked for Rod and I, and our merry band of travellers, has been exceptional - right down to every little detail. We have stayed at excellent hotels in great locations and have enjoyed visiting lots of interesting places.

We have no hesitation in recommending Carine Travel Bug as we are always 'guaranteed' of having the best memories from holidays arranged through you.

Keep up the good work!

I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work organising our wonderful holiday to Ireland and London. We had a fabulous time and have never had a holiday that ran so smoothly. 

Everything you organised ran beautifully to plan. I can see why Natalie Shaw recommended you to me, and I will certainly be making the same recommendation to my friends. 

Thank you again - all your hard work was very much appreciated.

We have found your service and that of Adventure World Travel to have been outstanding in the organisation of our Canada/USA holiday. Both Denise and I look forward to continuing our relationship with you in the future.

When planning a major overseas holiday you want to relax and enjoy it without stress or worry. You also want it to be time and money well spent. You want the accommodation to be at the requested standard and all tours, pick ups and bookings to run smoothly. All this occurred on our recent three week holiday around Italy thanks to Sue Holmes at Carine Travel Bug. We loved every minute of it.

Your genuine care for the customer is what first engaged me, and then your professionalism, knowledge and help to get a great deal makes you the one and only to use. I’m happy to write this travel review and recommend your services to everyone.

Just a quick email of thanks to Maureen. Your idea of travelling with Garuda was a good idea. Much better than Jetstar and Virgin and the added bonus was we flew when the two Australian airlines didn’t as Garuda flew in Indonesian military air space to go around the ash.  The Australian airlines can’t do that or so I was told! The flight was an extra hour but no big deal!
We also got the executive suite at the Dynasty which was great for the kids and overlooked the pool.
Many friends had massive problems that we didn’t have and while we got a bit lucky we appreciate your help and advice with the great holiday we had.

Thank you so much for your assistance in planning and then rearranging our NZ holiday plans. What a beautiful country! You did well by us with your suggestions. 

We all had a ball and loved the accommodation you arranged. Youngest grandson gauged how good a town was by the accommodation and allowed WIFI.

I really appreciate your lovely work and great service, and I will keep you in mind the next time any of my friends, family and myself would need to travel in the near future. 

The holiday went super smoothly and excellent. Good to be back home finally. 

I am writing the review of our holidays in Turkey, as we drive out of Istanbul on our way to Gallipoli. We have loved our time Turkey - the people have been very kind & welcoming.

Due to the low tourist numbers we have certainly been spoilt, often we have been the only ones on tour so have had our own private tour guide! Everything has gone smoothly - even the ferry to Fethiye went on the day as planned - we actually travelled on a hydrofoil.

Sadly our Cappadocia balloon ride was cancelled yesterday due to the wind, but our day tour in Cappadocia was absolutely fantastic! It was a full day from 9:30 - 6:30 and we saw everything. There were only 4 others with us that day.

We have been very impressed with the services and tour guides provided by Global Travel and wondered whether you could possibly pass on this feedback. We will certainly be encouraging our friends to visit this amazing country.

Can't believe we are almost at the end of our wonderful holiday! I recommend the holidays in Turkey. Thank you for all your efforts to make it so special.
