"[The oberoi] was absolutely perfect. It really was exactly what we needed/wanted from our honeymoon! The staff were amazing, the beaches and pools were beautiful and we felt like we virtually had the whole place to ourselves! We had great fun doing all the water sports and did rum tasting and the incredible private dining in the gunpowder room. The food was one of our favourite things about the whole hotel- it was so good!! Thank you so much for recommending it and booking everything - half board was exactly right for us and we're so glad we spent that little bit more for the 9 nights. Didn't want to leave- being back at work has definitely been a bit of a shock! Thank you so so so much again."

'We just wanted to say thank you for helping us to organise our honeymoon. It was magical and the wonderful memories will live on in our hearts forever! We would not have been able to navigate the maze that is Maldives resorts without your help!!
JP & AS, 2015

'We would have absolutely no hesitation recommending Exceptional Travel.  We had an outline plan to visit Argentina and Susanna expertly filled in the gaps.  Even the presentation of our itinerary was impressive!
Our hotels were indeed exceptional, Posada Puerto Bemberg (Iguazu) and estancia La Bamba da Areco (outside BA) in particular.  Loi Suites in Recoleta was also a perfect location, an oasis yet convenient, with several excellent restaurants locally.  We also visited wineries in Mendoza where the backdrop of the Andes is just fabulous.
I would also add that our Argentine contacts were all very informative and helpful.  We did encounter a problem with an internal flight but someone soon came to help us.
We will definitely use Exceptional again.'

'Just wanted to add my thanks for all your efforts in organising our holiday. All the places  we stayed in were great – we ate and drank far too much. Tim of course is now an expert on African wines. The Blue Train, Robben Island and Hermanus whales lent a nice break from all that wine tasting. And of course there was stunning scenery.'

'What a great time we had at Zighy Bay!  Highly recommended, 4 days there felt like a week. We want to go back with children next time. Thank you for sending us there, it was just what we needed!'
JD, 2014

'IT WAS FANTASTIC! And all topped off with us actually stumbling across a kill swiftly followed by all the pride giving an almighty roar. But that's not to dilute our views of the Seychelles. For such a big hotel, the Four Seasons made us feel like the only guests having good 'rapport' with the buggy drivers. It was immensely slick! And then North Island was just amazing. Wish we could've stayed longer. We didn't quite get chance to settle into a routine as we crammed as much in as possible. However, a great thing was to move on every few days as we always had something to look forward to. Truly THANK YOU Toby. You really looked after us and it was a holiday [and honeymoon] of a lifetime!'

'What can I say, we have had a fantastic trip [to Sri Lanka] and we are sad to be leaving in the morning. You have done a wonderful job, thank you. We will be in touch on our return and I will bore you the hundreds and hundreds of photos I have taken. We have LOVED it.'

'Thank you for going out on a limb and organising our [horse riding] trip [to Patagonia]. It was an amazing holiday.  The scenery, wildlife, birds and flowers were just incredible.  I loved it all.'

‘We are just back from Kenya, and I want to let you know how much we loved each and every stop of our trip. The balance of animal viewing and culture in Sarara was great. All the logistics of flight, pickups, and drop offs worked perfectly. Each "tent"camp was very different and each lovely in its own way. Thank you so much for helping us with this wonderful trip.’
HL, 2013

‘Just to say that we had an awesome time in the Mara. It really was fantastic. Thank you so much for arranging everything and helping with sorting Serian etc. Really appreciate it and the ideal place to go before Governor's.’

‘We had a wonderful time and it was so great to be back to nature and everything  went according to plan… We loved the various ways of seeing the game there – walking, boating, jeep safaris and also the fly camping – well worth doing as you had suggested…. Thank you for letting everyone know about our special occasions – we were constantly surprised by generous and kind touches from cakes to champagne and a private beach dinner… So all in all everything more than met our expectations. Thank you for everything.

  ‘..we had a fabulous time under your aegis at Kizingoni; the week at Jahazi House surpassed all expectations and was a great success; we were extremely well looked after, dined on some delightful cuisine (and provided some ingredients from our fishing) as well as enjoying many other entertainments…….it was an enormous success, greatly enjoyed and, bottom line, worth every penny..’
RW, 2010
 
‘I just wanted to write as soon as possible to tell you HOW delighted we were with our trip to East Africa….We had such a wonderful time from the moment we landed in Nairobi and I would go back tomorrow if I had the chance!... I could just go on and on.. It was all truly so special and wonderful and my first trip to Kenya will be the highlight of any holiday I have been on... Again thank you so much for organising such a wonderful and exceptional visit to Kenya.’
