Just thought you should know what a fantastic job that Carol and her team did for our family party of 13!

We've just had the most fantastic time in Disneyworld followed by an excellent week in Sarasota.

Many thanks!

Thanks

Our Mykonos Holiday
 
Dear Carol

Just a note to say a 'big' thank you for all of your work to make our Mykonos holiday possible for us.

We had a great holiday and the weather was perfect!

Thank you.

Excellent and efficient service from Atl ...
 
We have just returned from our holiday in California and Maine which was organised by Sabrina last year.

I thought I would drop you a quick line to say how much we enjoyed ourselves due, in no small part to the efficiency of the organisation and the schedule prepared on our behalf.

Everywhere we went to "check in", we were greeted with a smile, a click of a keyboard and the production of keys, seats and motor cars.

We were blessed with fine weather for 90% of the trip and when it did rain it was "warm" rain which is always tolerable.

All in all a very good holiday - thanks again to all of your team that made it possible.

Our adventure to Svalbard in the North A ...
 
My daughter and I have just returned from an Atlantis organised adventure to Svalbard in the North Arctic Ocean.

Having done our research we went in mid June for the best opportunities to see our prime objective, the Polar Bear.

Following an overnight stop in Oslo we caught a flight north to Longyearbyen, Svalbard, where we boarded our ship, an ice breaker called "The M/S Expedition" which accommodated some 100 guests together with their 70 crew and expedition support teams.

From Longyearbyen we headed north into the midnight sun searching the horizon 24/7 looking for the elusive polar bear. It took 3 days and nights before we spotted our first bear. It was 1.30am in the morning at 80.6 degrees north, 90 miles from the nearest land or the edge of the pack ice. This amazing predator was hunting seals and we had the privilege of watching. Thankfully from a safe distance and from the security of our ship.

With only an estimated 3,000 left in the wild this was very special, we went on to see two more of during the remainder of the week. As dangerous as they are, at 400kg and 3m tall, covering 100m in 6.5 seconds, you just have to admire them.

On the occasions we went ashore in zodiacs a scout party, armed with rifles, always had to go ahead first to ensure no polar bears were in the area.

In addition to the polar bears we were lucky enough to see a number of whales and even on one occasion a rare blue whale, the largest living mammal on the planet at around 50m. Reindeer and a herd of walrus which were all sighted and photographed from a safe and respectful distance.

The trip wasn't without fun as well, the evening entertainment in the bar was always good with both guests and crew joining in with a dance and a good sing along with Adam the resident musician on the piano.

More fun awaited us on the day they suggested we do a polar plunge at 80 degrees north !, not being one to refuse a challenge my daughter and I both went for it!, with water at 1 deg C believe me it was a very quick dip, in and out !

On the occasions when we were not ashore or on wildlife watch we had lectures to capture the imagination on many topics, wildlife, photography, the arctic history and geology. All were extremely interesting and educational

A wonderful trip, very professionally organised by great people who knew exactly how to make this adventure of a lifetime, safe and extremely enjoyable

Dear Melvyn, Sharon and Ruth,

Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers that you sent us for our Golden Wedding Anniversary.

We had such a wonderful time in the Hotel Grand in Mykonos, we can't wait to go back.

The owners and staff were brilliant, they served us dinner on the beach and made us a 'Beef Wellington' especially.

Thank you so much.

Barbados holiday
 
Dear Carol,

I just wanted to drop you a line to confirm that we had a super time in Barbados. Crystal Cove was a really nice little resort and it was just what we were looking for in a holiday.

Thank you so much for arranging it for us.

Best regards

Jonathan
Japan 2015
 
Hello Carol,

We're back! We had a really fantastic holiday and everything went so smoothly and without a single hitch. Please pass on our thanks to the Japanese travel company. Everything was as they wrote in our itinerary, directions to places were spot on, and the tempura restaurant was superb.

But I do have done feedback for you - as always.... I hope you find it useful.

The first hotel in Tokyo, the Park Hotel, was a nice hotel, with nice views, a good sized room, and nice breakfast. Nothing special, but nice. Toiletries were lovely, staff were friendly and it felt slightly boutique-y even though it was quite a big hotel.

We took the recommended train to Hakone, but given the strict 3:00 check-in time for the hotel there it may have been better to have got a later train and have a more leisurely breakfast at the hotel in a Tokyo and check out later. One for the tour company. We arrived at the hotel at around midday and were politely shown the door and told to come back at 3:00. No real problem but we were in "travel" mode with stuff packed away in suitcases so not really geared up for a day out. But once we were allowed in, the hotel in Hakone was a real treat. The dinner menu was amazing, and on the second evening they even produced an English translation of the menu, as pretty as the Japanese menu they prepared each day. The baths and hot rocks and Japanese rooms and clothes made this place feel so calm and relaxed.

The hotel in Kyoto was also a joy. Mume is in a very pretty little Kyoto townhouse, very close to the old Gion streets, yet far enough away to be relaxing. The staff were completely bonkers, very lovely but slightly over attentive, which Simon and I found very entertaining, but reading some of the reviews of the hotel on TripAdvisor it seems to have annoyed many people. There are only 7 rooms so I guess the staff can afford to spend time chatting too long to everyone! The room was lovely and the hospitality was second to none. But because you had to ring the doorbell to get into the hotel, you always had to have an exchange with a member of staff who would quiz you on what you had done that day and what you were planning to do next, with the intention of being helpful but it was exhausting! And then they would draw you into the lounge for drinks - which were all complimentary! Bizarre but in a lovely bonkers way.

The travel instructions to Hiroshima were very easy to follow, no problems at all.

We didn't like the second hotel in Tokyo, it was just as big, anonymous and bland a business hotel as I had feared it would be. The view from the room was very nice but it isn't enough to make recommend it to anyone. The facilities in the room were really basic, the bathroom toiletries were really basic and it was a slight disappointment after the loveliness of Hakone and Kyoto. I didn't really like it at all. It's purely functional, which is all you need in Tokyo really because you are out and about all day, but it just didn't have the relaxed vibe when you came back in at the end of a long day in Tokyo's buzz. But maybe we were just in a negative frame of mind because it was our last stop and we were depressed about ending our lovely holiday.

Thanks again for another super holiday.

Hello Karen

Happy new year to you too.

I did mean to contact you before Christmas but time ran away with me!

We had a fabulous time thank you, both Sandy Lane and Silversea surpassed our expectations and were outstanding in every aspect. Every part of the holiday went without a hitch and we were very grateful to you and the team at Atlantis for organising every detail for us. We will keep an eye open for future offers and deals!

Thank you.

Dear Carol,
We had a fantastic time. Londolozi of course very familiar and will keep coming back. Next time we will skip Saxon (also great as we knew) and go straight. Tongabezi quirky but terrific. Warm, very service oriented and food very, very good. We did helicopter, micro-light planes, bunge jumping (boys), devil's pool, etc. Kinondo Kwetu (home away from home in Swahili is exactly that). 80% Swedes but cool with us.
Thanks for all your help.

Oceania Cruises Riviera - excellent food ...
 
Thanks Katie, I am currently sorting out my papers for the cruise, which really was a great success.

I was concerned that our grandchildren might not have enjoyed the ship as it is reputedly not child friendly, I am delighted to say that they loved every minute and every feature of the "Riviera" and being August there were other children on board.

The food on the ship was first class, amongst the best we have had on any cruise with plenty of choice at the speciality restaurants as well as an excellent main dining room.

The accommodation again first class.

Hi Karen

Many thanks, the cruise book arrived at dead on 1pm, plus information on Visa for Turkey and details about booking free coach travel from Heathrow to Gatwick.

Fortunately had organised the first and didn’t need the second. As always you and your team have gone the extra mile and John and I are extremely grateful. I bet you can’t wait to receive our next booking with Swan Hellenic.

Kind regards

Thank you, Ruth, for organising the Insignia Oceania Cruise, we appreciated all your help.

We all really had a great time, the weather was very kind, so no need for the piles of seasick tabs that we took with us.

We all loved the cruise line, the food and accommodation were excellent, and we look forward to picking up the 2015 brochure for the next one.

Kind regards,

Hi Melvyn

I am in the middle of organizing my honeymoon and I have been dealing with Carol at Atlantis.

I just wanted to let you know how helpful she has been and how happy I am with her service and help. She has got back to me promptly and kept me informed of every aspect of helping me and my fiancee arrange an amazing trip. I can't wait to finalise details and hopefully book.

I always like to hear compliments about our team so thought you would too :-)

Kindest Regards

Dear Katie,

We came back on Sunday morning form our long cruise/holiday booked with you. Everything went perfectly from start to finish, even the weather!

Florida we expected to be good and it was, but the cruise itself was marvellous, even around Cape Horn the sea was smooth.

Thank you so much for all the time and trouble you put into organising this trip for us.

With warm regards,

Mauritius Holiday
 
We returned from Mauritius last week after having had a great holiday. All the arrangements worked out perfectly and we just wanted to say thanks for your efforts. Also the Residence hotel which you recommended was superb and we would have no hesitation in suggesting that you recommended to other clients. The setting, service, friendliness of staff and all aspects were excellent.

We hope to return next year and will contact you when the the time comes.

Best wishes

GREAT TRIP ON OCEANIA SHIP -RIVIERA

Independence of the Seas - fabulous cruise
 
Dear Katie,

We returned to Melbourne (Australia), on schedule, MON 13 July.

Just a quick note to thank you again for all your arrangements. We had a great trip including the RCC cruise you organized. The Cabins you reserved were ideal in their location; particularly on such a huge ship.

The ship, itself, was incredible especially the entertainment. The important thing was no hitches; especially the (nine) various transfers I arranged directly for various pickups and transfers between airports, hotels, Southampton and my stay with Mrs. Hylander in Hampstead. I can recommend "City Airport Taxis" which I used for the 9 transfers. Not only did they all arrive on time as arranged but they were the least expensive out of three similar car companies.

I look forward to doing business with you again (perhaps) for 2014.

With kindest personal regards,

Sincerely

Mr Ress
Oceania Cruise on board Riviera
 
Dear Karen,

Thank you for your email and your interest. I am ashamed that I have not yet written to you.

I want to tell you that the cruise was not good, it was fantastic!! We had not been on a cruise for many yeast and we can't wait to be able to do it again. The Riviera was unbelievable in every way
so was your organizing ours and the Levinrads details and bookings.

I can't think of any aspect that was not a 10!

So please thank the people at Atlantis (we referred our friends the Gertlers who have booked through you).

So again our sincere thanks and please let us know of Oceania trips for next year Summer.

Mr Turner
Australia Tour
 
Dear Sabrina
This is to let you know that our trip went off very well and we had a really great time. The flights were excellent. We liked the Marina Mandarin hotel in Singapore very much. There are good dining facilities on site. There is a huge outdoor pool which we didn't actually get in but it looks very good. The excursions in Singapore (City Tour and Footsteps of Raffles) were very interesting and enjoyable.
The two hotels we used in Sydney were both first class as is to be expected. The Four Seasons is slightly more accessible from George Street than is the Shangri-La which although almost next door to the Four Seasons is up a short but steep hill. Otherwise there is nothing to choose between them. The Four Seasons aranged repair of one of our suitcases which lost a wheel on the flight to Singapore. We attended a concert (Vladimir Ashkenazi) at the Sydney Opera House. The Blue Mountains Wildlife excursion was great and we thoroughly recommend this.
The Peninsula Hotel in Port Douglas is excellent. It is quite different from the two big city hotels we stayed at in Sydney as it is in the tropics and by the beach and is very good indeed. It is called a "Boutique" hotel. We are not quite clear what that is, but it probably means small specialised and up-market. This really applies to the whole town! We ate in the excellent hotel restaurant on some nights. The restaurant is not open on Saturday night but this doesn't matter at all as there are several very good restaurants in Port Douglas within easy walking distance of the Peninsula hotel.(booking may be advisable especially on Friday evening). We went on the two trips you booked (Cape Tribulation/Daintree and Quicksilver to Agincourt Reef) and these were excellent. Janet managed to get some snorkelling in at the Reef.
Thank you very much for arranging all this.

Everything was as you described and we were looked after extremely well.

The food choices and quality were excellent as was the suite and the service.
