Did you know: The city name "Canberra" means "Meeting Place"


"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!!!"

"I didn’t know what I was looking for in a travel agent until I met Annie. My current position as an Office Manager requires me to arrange corporate travel for our 210 person software development studio. The requests often occur last minute, need immediate response and can change several times before and during the trip; Annie has always responded quickly and kindly to all my needs no matter how sudden and varied they may be. She keeps me on track and makes sure that I get what I need done. Annie helps me do my job and she makes me look good. She is readily available via email or telephone and if she is away, she makes sure that I am taken care of by an equally capable colleague. I would recommend Annie with confidence to anyone that needs a little extra care because honestly, who couldn’t use some extra care in this busy world?"

"I started working with The Travel Group and Annie Smits over 15 years ago. Being in the videogame industry, deadlines change constantly and as such, so do travel arrangements. Annie and the crew over at TG always accommodate and go above and beyond. I get such incredible service that I’ve recommended Annie to other studios and continue to use her exclusively in my personal travel even though I’ve been living in the US for over five years. She is not only my travel agent but a dear close friend. You will not get better and more knowledgeable service from anyone in the biz. Annie is well traveled, well versed and has a wickedly contagious sense of humour. I highly recommend Annie and the Travel Group for any and all of your travel needs."

We just arrived back from beautiful Tahiti.  We had a lovely time and saw some very cool wildlife including a moray eel!  I think both of us felt Moorea was the favourite as it felt like we were on some pirate Treasure island!  We are both tanned, relaxed and ready to live happily ever after.  Thank you so much for all your help and I will definitely recommend you to any of our honeymooning friends.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Tahiti.  Everything went smoothly.  The accommodations were fantastic and we had great views from all three bungalows. We were also happy that we opted for the breakfast meal plan in Bora Bora and in Moorea.  The food and service were very good at both resorts.  The highlights of our trip included snorkeling almost every day, an ATV tour through the crater in Moorea, swimming along with the stingrays in Bora Bora and biking into town for souvenier shopping in Moorea.

Thank you for helping us to plan a trip of a life time!
