Just a quick note to say thanks for your help with our recent Europe trip. All things went like clockwork and took all the stress out of everything. Your recommendations on accommodation were spot on. Again thank you and well done!!

We are having a fabulous time! George our guide was outstanding. Great drive to Ljubljana, good train ride to Zagreb and superb hotel. How do you do this? Many thanks again for all your wonderful planning for us.

I would like to express my immense gratitude for the friendly, detailed and professional way that you handled my travel arrangements. The fact that it was organised with such ease made my trip perfect from the word to go.

What a wonderful trip we had! Vietnam was a great experience for all of us. Thank you so much for all your help in coordinating the trip, the family will never forget it.

Congratulations and thanks for organising such a beautifully coordinated holiday recently. We had a wonderful time and loved every minute!

The accommodation you arranged was exceptional both in standard and location – many of the hotels were Fit for Royalty with beautiful rooms, amenities and exceptional service, and the Lodges in/near the national parks exceeded our expectations and were perfectly positioned.

We are having a wonderful time in Banff. Would like to thank you for booking us the most amazing accommodation Everywhere we have been, has been fantastic (great beds, luxurious bed linen…). Very spoilt! Lake Louise was out of this world, have never seen anything so beautiful in my life.

Thank you so much for organising such a fabulous journey for my family and me. Everything worked out beautifully and it was such a joy to feel totally confident that it would do just that – because you had arranged it.

Hawthorn Travel has always provided us with very successful and well-organised trips. We really do appreciate your efforts and professionalism. You were always willing to help us and answer questions.

Your attention to detail, continual follow-up and feedback ensured that our trip went smoothly and was thoroughly enjoyable. We will have no hesitation in using your services again as well as recommending you to our friends.

Thank you so much for your efficiency in ensuring that everything was well organised and for your valuable help in putting together our rather vague ideas into a superb experience.

Your organization and attention to detail was exceptional, not easy when you were dealing with 13 people coming and going at different times. Thank you so very much for helping make this such a wonderful and memorable family journey.

I really do appreciate your efforts and contacting me – very impressed and I now know why Hawthorn Travel has such a great reputation. Well done.

Thank you so much to you and your team for being so helpful and responsive.  We do appreciate that you and your company have been under a great deal of pressure for very little financial reward. If we are able to consider a trip to France (or elsewhere) rest assured we will come and see Hawthorn Travel & Cruise. We will also make a point of telling others of our experience and will be recommending they contact you.

I would like to thank you most sincerely for your help with my claim. I know you must have been helping many others. There seems no immediate end to restrictions imposed because of the COVID-19 virus but I will be certainly coming to you to organise my next trip!

Thanks again for your ever-reliable assistance and I look forward to making contact when we are able to travel again.

I know it has already been said, but that’s amazing work considering nearly everything was not refundable, not transferable.

Fantastic result !! We will wait and see regarding booking next year, I really hope we can.
