I had a fantastic time and I want to go again. Long may Tanzania conserve its natural heritage and friendly people. Thank you.
Having never been on a tailor-made holiday we were extremely impressed with how smoothly our holiday went and it made our honeymoon much more enjoyable not to have to worry about the transfers. However, what impressed us most about your company was the helpfulness before we booked. Jonathan Morris was extremely helpful and suggested what we could afford on our budget and sent us a sample itinerary. . .This contrasted with a few other companies we contacted who told us that we could not afford a tailor-made Galapagos trip and would not even discuss it further. We had many emails and telephone conversations with Jonathan and were extremely impressed with the information and assistance he gave us.
Thank you for arranging a wonderful tour for us in Borneo – Reef and Rainforest have done it again! The wildlife viewing has been superb. ..all lifetime memories! The food was also excellent and [your representatives] were very efficient and extremely helpful…all the logistics worked very well…the memories will last a long time. Looking forward to Belize
It was an excellent trip. I saw a lot of a wonderful country and would like to return. The Malagasy people are lovely. Friendly and hospitable throughout. Everything was done to ensure we were happy and comfortable. Excellent service and wildlife. Wildlife highlights: mating fosas, close encounters with indri, diademed sifaka and ringtailed lemurs above us as we picniced below.
This really was a trip of a lifetime and we loved every minute of it. What a privilege to visit such a wonderful country. A wonderful experience, wonderful country and people. Thank you for giving us such a great holiday [to Guyana].
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.
[My girlfriend] suggested I ‘write up’ our impressions of our recent trip to Costa Rica.. .here goes! Starting at the very beginning, our arrival at San Jose…was a really good introduction to the general efficiency of the country and of [your representatives] in particular…The [hotel] was a great choice…our guide on our mountain walk was exceptional… Once again our timetable was spot-on… [The Dominical lodge] is a magical place.. .a definite must in our book… [The Osa lodge] is located in a beautiful situation and the accommodation is really amazing…the meals are good…the trips well worth doing…If you have any clients who would like to ask us for our impressions don’t hesitate to suggest they contact us, we’ll be only too pleased to let them know of such wonderful places and delightful people. Again, thank you for putting together a memorable fortnight for us.
WILDLIFE: EXCELLENT Giant anteater swimming across the river. Number of bird species in Trinidad and the tarantula! The otters of course! And a baby anteater which unfortunately died. At least 4 species of monkey. Amazonian water lilies. Bat hanging from shower head! Golden frog in bromeliad. Cane toad, boa constrictor, jaguar tracks in sand.
GENERAL COMMENTS: We saw an extremely varied range of landscapes, plants, animals. We met a lot of very friendly and very interesting people. We have travelled extensively and this was one of the best trips we have ever had. Guyana was special as it is one of the most unspoilt wildernesses we ever visited. We never reached the stage where we felt ready to return home and have found it very difficult to adjust to our normal lives. Apart from in the hotels, the food was excellent – a good range, well cooked using local ingredients imaginatively! We appreciated Delice’s visits to the hotel at both ends of the Guyana visit. The Asa Wright Lodge was extremely well run, with outstanding attention to detail. Keep finding people like the McTurks for us to visit!
[Our Guide] made the trip for us. She was knowledgeable, took her time and was very enthusiastic. This was a wonderful holiday and well organised. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
This is the second trip with reef and Rainforest and it certainly met all of our expectations. (Your representatives) were excellent as were all the lodges generally. There was a good balance of organised tours and time to ourselves – this was just what we wanted. Your choice of locations in Costa Rica was again excellent sharing your local knowledge and expertise and assessing what we wanted. Thank you very much for your help and organisation. We look forward to using you again and will happily recommend you.
Two close (15 & 20 ft) sightings of jaguar. Several cock-of-the-rock. High bird count in Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago. Overall, we enjoyed our tour and considered it well worthwhile.
We have had a truly wonderful Guyana holiday. The hospitality has been amazing. Our transfers worked extremely well, your agents did a first class job.
