WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Whether you want a quiet relaxing holiday or an adrenaline pumping experience of a life time, The Adventure Traveller are your go to team! I have been travelling with Devin for over 10 years and he has taken me to places I never would have dreamed possible. Nothing is too much trouble for Devin and the further you want to get off the beaten track the more he is in his element ticking off your bucket list! Devin’s greatest strength is listening to his clients to ensure your next holiday is exactly what you dreamed of. If you want the hassle taken out of your next holiday give The Adventure Traveller team a call. I wouldn’t organise an overseas adventure with anyone else!!!
Cheery Greetings William,
It is so good to hear from you again though it is somewhat sad, especially for your business.
We are very pleased to hear you guys have managed to stay in business though which is awesome. The travel industry will pick up again eventually, already many people we know are holidaying within Queensland.
Unfortunately Kai and I cannot afford to catch Coronavirus, given our underlying health problems, our over 55 ages and our being “somewhat portly” we probably would not survive contracting COVID 19.
We are becoming even more reclusive than we were pre COVID……we can only hope the medicos come up with a vaccine for it or with a cure for it sooner rather than later.
We would love to travel overseas again one day when COVID is no longer a danger to us.
With having this rather long enforced break from family and friends and with working from home, we no longer feel like we have to relocate to New Zealand to live, so we are rethinking taking our Finland/England trip again in 2023 when Kai retires, hopefully by then Covid will just be a memory and international travel will be back to a new, regular normal.
And we will definitely be booking that adventure with you.
Thank you and to Cunard for refunding our deposit.
We wish you guys every success for your future and as soon as we can we will be back booking our European Extended Holiday with you guys.
With thanks for the job you do every day William, all the very best wishes to you, your family and to your colleagues,
Please take care, stay safe and please keep staying COVID free,
Warm regards as always,
Our family of four has just returned from the most amazing ski adventure and white Christmas in Canada with an Hawaiian thaw out on the way home. Glenda Geeves from the adventure traveller developed our entire itinerary which included out of the box activities which we would otherwise have missed. This is the reason we have gone back to using travel agents. We do around 2 overseas trips a year and travel agents are definitely the cost effective and efficient way to do it. Glenda was incredibly professional, knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend The Adventure Traveller.
I used services of The Adventure Traveller for many years. Knowing that I can always count on my agent’s support wherever in the world I might find myself gave me sense of security and peace of mind. Visa trouble in Republic of Georgia or trip cancelled in the middle of my Pan American trip from Alaska to Rio de Janeiro; Devin had a solution! Thanks The Adventure Traveller, you are a great travel companion.
Unbelievably awesome travel agents.
Thanks to Dean our family trip to New York was everything we could imagine. Everything was amazing and I would highly recommend The Adventure Traveller.
Very highly recommended. I saved $500 by booking with them instead of booking with my local travel agent. Their service is also exceptional, they’re all so nice and patient.
Professional from start to finish, Brilliant service from Glenda (including dropping off some Tour bag-tags to my residence). Would recommend.
Just had the most amazing holiday in Vietnam! Thanks Dean, your expertise and advice was awesome as always.
Incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating staff!
I highly recommend Devin and his gang at the Adventure Traveller if you a planning a trip in Australia or overseas. He as done a superb job on our upcoming East European trip despite a few political challenges with unrest in Turkey and a number of other places. Have used Devin’s services on previous trips to Vietnam, Taiwan, Cambodia and Laos and hopefully we look forward to a few more adventures in coming years.
Best travel agent I know. Have had the best holidays since I met them. Highly recommend
Dear William, Dean and Glenda,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your advice, care and attention over the past few years that has so enhanced my travel experiences. Prior to coming to see you all at Adventure Traveller I had always organized my own trips however your recommendations and bookings have opened up new adventures and made my travel experiences all the more enjoyable. From limoncello served at the office prior to my walking holiday in Italy to the laughter and joy of organizing a hiking trip pre World Cup in Japan it has always been a great visit to you all in Paddington. I can’t wait till our world becomes a little more normal and I can organise some more exciting travel with you all.
Good luck and kind regards
