We just love to get feedback from happy Exotic Destinations travellers.
Here’s just a few of the many lovely messages we receive…
Thank you for arranging our itinerary for Sri Lanka – stunning countryside with a wonderful history and culture. The Jetwing Lagoon, Heritance Tea Factory Hotel, Cinnamon Citadel and Yala and Fort Printers Hotel were all excellent properties. What a gem The Fort Printers Hotel in Galle. Please pass on our thanks to our driver/guide Nanda who was helpful, polite and always smiling. He obviously enjoyed sharing his knowledge of his beautiful country.
Your itinerary gave us an excellent overview of Sri Lanka taking in the bustling cities of Kandy and Galle, the coast, tea highlands and the amazing Yala National Park. We not only saw a number of Leopards but also the elusive Sloth Bear.
We have already suggested Sri Lanka as a destination to friends and have no hesitation in recommending Exotic Destinations as the preferred company.”

“-In Istanbul, the Hotel Sultanahan is wonderful value for money. The location is superb and the rooms are lovely. – The Gallipoli tour guide and driver arranged by Exotic Destinations were faultless. – Cappadocia is up there with the most amazing sights in the world. We cannot speak highly enough of the Cappadocia Balloon company’s deluxe balloon tour – awe inspiring sights and a service level that was phenomenal for a company with a highly sought product. The Gamirasu Cave Hotel is absolutely wonderful. The Cave Suite was really something.”

A quick note to thank you for organising a wonderful and memorable trip for our family to India.
We were particularly impressed by the high service level afforded to us by the local agents and guides. It was nice not having to worry about timing and logistics when you are on holidays. In fact, quite genuinely, we were treated like Maharajahs.
Your recommended itinerary and the quality of the accommodation you chose was first class, we particularly loved the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur and the Lake Palace in Udaipur.
The trip was hassle free and we even managed not to get Delhi belly!
Thanks once again.

“On a personal side, Kelly and I wish to thank you for planning such a superb trip for us. Turkey was such a surprise and we loved every moment of the trip. Our guide Inci Turkoglu was first class, she not only spoke excellent English (which we requested) but was an archaeological expert and was so passionate about history. Her knowledge was endless. She seemed to enjoy being with us as much as we enjoyed her as on the last free day she insisted on continuing to guide us around Istanbul, then came to dinner with us and finished up on the rooftop at the hotel until she had to leave to catch the last ferry home. I would like to make comment on the hotels which you had chosen. The Nerion in Istanbul was absolutely wonderful with the staff being so helpful and friendly. The little extras – mezza, Turkish delight in the rooms, free drinks on arrival, rooftop drinks every evening, a farewell gift for the ladies, all made for a great experience. The location is perfect, breakfast was excellent, … rave, rave, rave really. The Villa Tamara at Kas was also superb. The service and attention to us there was top class. We were captive there as regards evening meals yet the staff went out of their way the provide meals that suited our tastes and budget. Dining on the terrace with so much attention and excellent food was one of the special memories. The smiling faces and friendly desire to help will keep this hotel as the special place it is. We swam in the sea there and it was wonderful too.”

“Kate and I would like to further record what a wonderful job you did in putting together our itinerary for Jordan and Israel and ensuring that all the arrangements worked extraordinarily well. The trip was a huge success – fascinating as to history and the current situation of both nations, and of course Palestine.
The thing that matters most in these types of trips is the guides. The guide in Jordan was very good. The guide in Israel, Lior Laufer, was absolutely outstanding. Not only did he have a prodigious knowledge of the history and geography, but really deep insights into the cultural issues surrounding Israel.
So thank you indeed for your prompt response. We look forward to working with you again.”

“We have returned from our holiday in Sri Lanka and wish to pass on our thanks for a safe, well-organised and highly enjoyable holiday. We felt we saw a lot of Sri Lanka in a short time and have come back home with more understanding and respect for a very great culture. We loved the history, the people and the food! I would especially like to thank our driver Thilak who was unfailingly reliable and negotiated the roads very safely. He made our transfers very comfortable and has enormous knowledge and pride in his country.
We have no hesitation in recommending Sri Lanka and your companies to our travelling friends.”

“Just wanted to inform you that we have just finished lunch and a cooking course at Cappadocia Home Cooking and it has been a standout highlight of the trip.
The opportunity to learn about Turkish food from a family – grandmother who cooks, son and wife, who helps was fantastic. Their hospitality (the wife presented our two females with bracelets hand made by her at the end of the meal), knowledge and friendliness was fantastic.
The husband also gave us a walking tour of the town before lunch.
I should also mention the food was the best we’ve eaten in Turkey.
I cannot recommend this activity too highly and urge you to send more people to this terrific family.”
