"I have been working successfully & in good humour with The Travel Group & their predecessors for over 20 years. They have worked well for me with everything from very volatile business travel, to pre-programmed vacation tours worldwide. I commend them for their enthusiasm, efficiency & courteous response over the years."

"I have dealt with Annie Smits and her colleagues at The Travel Group for the past 10 years for both business and pleasure travel.  On the business side, Annie has been terrific, delivering exactly what I need.  I have 100% confidence that she will book the optimal flights and accommodation based on my priorities.  Most importantly, when I am in a jam (cancelled flights, change of plans, etc.), she is instantly accessible to help me out.  On the pleasure side, the folks at The Travel Group are very willing to do the ground work to plan the ideal vacation.  They are extremely patient and accommodating when I change my mind again and again about where I want to go.  I would highly recommend Annie Smits and The Travel Group for both personal and pleasure travel arrangements."

"Just wanted to let you know how my trip went.  It was fantastic; I did so much stuff like skydiving, bungie jumping, and white water rafting.  There weren't that many people on the bus, maybe about 8, but that wasnt a bad thing because everyone was great to get along with.  All of my flights went smoothly and there were absolutely no problems with seating or departure times.  It was an awesome experience and I want to thank you very much for all your work in getting all of it together for me.  I would totally recommend using you to book trips to that part of the world to my friends and family."

"A BIG THANK-YOU, JASON.  Donna and I had a blast.  Australia is absolutely fabulous.  Everywhere we stayed in Sydney, Cairns, Brisbane and Coogee Beach, our accommodations were immaculate and in perfect locations. The places we stayed and the tours we took were exceptional."

"Thanks for arranging everything.    The Melbourne and Sydney hotels that we stayed in were perfectly located for us – close to the downtown areas, yet within walking distances of other interesting sites.     All the accommodations that you selected were great. The trip went so smoothly and we know that was because you had taken care of so many details.  We will definitely contact you again if we are travelling in the South Pacific.
We had to do a lot of searching on the internet to find a South Pacific specialist (you); it would be nice if potential travellers could find you easier."

"Just wanted to say thank you for all your help on booking my trip to Australia.  It was absolutely fantastic and the places you suggested and booked for us were great.  The hotels were all in a great area within walking distance to everything, which was handy since we walked a lot.  It’s a trip I know Robin and myself will never forget thanks to you."

"We had the most amazing trip and the wedding was better than we could have ever anticipated, it was just beautiful and perfect! Everything worked out so well, and you did such a great job picking fantastic places for us to stay and tours! We had no hiccups along the way at all – how amazing is that!
Both John and I wanted to extend a very warm thank you for all your efforts and hard work to make our trip so amazing and to help us fulfill our dreams – you took our dreams and worked hard to fit everyone of them into our budget to allow us to fulfill them which was absolutely amazing; since no one else came remotely close to what you could provide to us!!!! And since you put down that we were honeymooners, we got a lot of upgrades and a total of 5 bottles of champagne through out the trip – so thank you for that!!!"
