Panama was a fascinating and extraordinary country. The pleasing thing was to see its immense areas of rainforest, i.e the Darien. An amazing place. We encountered many different Panamanians and what came across to us was their pride in their country. This holiday was amazing, all the things we like doing and seeing and more. Thank you so much for all your hard work in making this a holiday to remember and savour long after our return, and at such short notice!
Thank you for arranging such a thoroughly enjoyable trip, which went so smoothly. We hope to return to India again before too long.
The wildlife – especially in the Galapagos was superb + lived up to expectations. Our real Galapagos highlights were sub-aquatic – the marine life being spectacular – whales, manta rays, stingrays, sharks, sea lions, marine iguanas, octopi, plus so many huge fish!
We had a superb holiday [in Tanzania]. I was particularly struck by the variety in the bush. I wasn’t expecting such diversity of trees and colours. Fabulous wildlife. The arrangements all went like clockwork making the whole holiday very relaxed. It worked very well with the children…they were welcomed everywhere.
Firstly may I say how greatly Peter and I appreciated all you did to give us such a wonderful holiday – it was truly memorable. Great wildlife watching, smooth organisation and a totally trouble-free trip – terrific! We would love to go back to Costa Rica…we had super views of quetzals at Monteverde and also there, two perfect appearances by the three-wattled bellbird. ..With all good wishes and again, our most grateful thanks.
Our guide was excellent being knowledgeable, interesting, trustworthy and a good travel companion. I would unhesitatingly recommend him to your future clients. Yala was undoubtedly the highlight of the tour and from a wildlife point of view exceeded our expectations. My wife and I have had a thoroughly enjoyable two weeks in Sri Lanka. Everything ran smoothly and there were no major faults. Astounding scenery and wildlife, friendly people and delicious food.
We will certainly consider using Reef and Rainforest again. Thank you for putting together a wonderful itinerary which covered all our needs in the time available. A return visit to see other parts of the island will be on our list!
We had a wonderful holiday and the arrangements were excellent. We have almost 2000 digital photographs plus a video and no complaints. Thank you.
This is just a brief note on return from our Costa Rica holiday to thank you for your excellent arrangements and to report on a very successful holiday… I would make a special mention of the service offered by [your representatives]. Every single booking and taxi arrangement was spot on, and the drivers were all helpful and friendly… Please pass on our specific thanks to them. Altogether we had a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday as well as some good birding…you succeeded in keeping my wife as well as me very happy! Many thanks.
[Your representatives] were terrific. Always there on time no matter what hour of day or night. Wildlife guides exceptionally good – knowledgeable, alert, always trying.
We write to express our thanks for organising another highly successful special itinerary tour [to Papua new Guinea], despite the last minute changes to our tour schedule. We were very impressed with [your representatives]. They ran a highly professional service in all aspects. The three lodges, all with their own very special character, were well run with friendly staff, clean and with good facilities. The food at all three was excellent -including the vegetarian provision. The transfer arrangements…were excellent…The excursion opportunities at all the lodges were good.. .The three contrasting locations of the lodges…enabled us to sample three very different village cultures, and their remoteness and juxtaposition to primary rainforest. . .made for excellent wildlife viewing especially for birds.. .In all our world travels so far, we have never been able to match the very special experience that combined the comfort of these individually unique lodges.. .with the opportunities to explore some of the world’s dwindling rainforest and meet its ancient and charming peoples and witness its unique birdlife. To step outside our lodge cabin [at Tari] and observe three species of birds of paradise was just magic!
The Galapagos cruise was superb. The wildlife is truly phenomenal there and the boat crew were fun and efficient.
This is just a quick… note to tell you what a fabulous time we had in Rwanda with Janice Booth. We have been to some stunning places before (many of them through you), but Rwanda captivated us in so many different ways that it beats the lot! We expected, of course, to he wowed by the gorillas – but they managed to exceed our expectations. To be so close to such awesome creatures in the wild is not an experience we are likely to forget. What really took us by surprise was the warmth of the welcome that we received from the people…The country itself is beautiful…so much diversity…Janice was terrific and [the local guide] was delightful. We could not have asked for a better team.
