Expert Africa - customer service

On this trip, I visited South Africa between 6-Mar-2008 and 26-Mar-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


The holiday itinerary you put together for us was exactly what we had asked you for. We got to see a tremendous range of scenery - both urban and rural, both coastal and inland - together with a good taste of the natural flora and fauna. The guesthouses and hotels you selected for us were superb (see below)and the travelling distances sensibly achievable whilst allowing us plenty of time to see and enjoy each area.

Our dealings with Expert Africa were an entirely happy and stress free experience - from Claire's advice throughout the planning of the holiday, to Jill's attention on the ground in South Africa.

We will most definitely be recommending you and hope to be able to travel with you again in the future. Well done - a perfect example of excellent customer service in an industry which at times struggles!!

Thank you once again Claire - we hadn't been on holiday for 8 years, so this was a very important break for us and you were instrumental in making it wonderful.

Thank you so much.
