Hi Pip, Thanks for organising a great holiday for us.
Everything went like clockwork (just the way I like it -no stress).
We had a very enjoyable time and saw some new territory in our beautifull land.
Very pleased to have met you in person.
Once again thanks for your involvement. You did a great job for us.
Regards, John and Margaret


Happy New Year. I hope your trip went well and look forward to hearing all about it. Thailand was brilliant, managed perfect weather with virtually no rain which helped. All of the accommodation and transfers worked brilliantly and I have been singing your praises to anyone who asks about travelling in Thailand. The transfer company Buffalo tours were particularly good, luxurious vehicles, always on time and good for a map and some local information, all really helped for a hassle free holiday

Had a great time, met so many lovely people. could not believe how many people booked through your office as we all had our lanyards on.   We drove past your office on a tour of Adelaide but not enough time to call in in to meet you.  Maybe one day.

Thank you again the trip was so well organised.

Regards, Joe and Lyn Laws


Hi Samantha,

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all you did in making my holiday as memorable as it was.

Everything went smoothly from beginning to end and I had a fabulous time.

New York the Queen Mary2 and London for Chelsea absolutely magic.

Thanks again for all your help

Cheers, Sharyn Finter


Hi Samantha,

We have just returned from our trip and would like to let you know that it was a wonderful experience that we both thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you for your excellent organisation - everything went so smoothly and to schedule.

We were treated like VIPs in all situations. Thank you so much for preparing such an enjoyable and much-needed holiday for us. I would be happy to recommend Holidays of Australia to anyone.

Hi Kenn,

Thanks for the opportunity to experience this great value holiday.

The trip was very good.  Really enjoyed the Ghan and excursions.

Even though we had travelled this area by bus over 10 years ago we did different excursions.

Helicopter ride over Katherine Gorge, BBQ under the stars in Alice Springs and lunch in a cave in Coober Pedy and a visit to The Breakaways were the highlights.

Hi Kenn

The trip you organised for us was, in a word, FANTASTIC!  From the moment we arrived at the station in Adelaide to the moment we were delivered to Changi airport, everything went perfectly.  

We were so impressed with our journey on The Ghan, the service, the food and the off-train excursions were all exceptional.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at the Double Tree by Hilton in Darwin, the accommodation and breakfast were very good and the staff were always most helpful.  The tour to Litchfield National Park with AAT Kings was most enjoyable, more so because we had an exceptional guide/driver by the name of Deb.  Your representative in Darwin, Ben, was most professional and well organised in getting us all onto the ship with the minimum of fuss.

We enjoyed calm seas and great weather on our 5 night cruise to Singapore and the last 2 nights at the Goodwood Park hotel in Singapore were the perfect ending to a most enjoyable holiday.  Thank you, again, for re-organising the Singapore tours for us, we thoroughly enjoyed both the Chinatown by Night and the Breakfast at the Zoo.

Having worked in the travel industry for many years, I was very impressed by the professional and courteous service offered by Holidays of Australia and would be very happy to recommend your tours to everyone.

Well done and many, many thanks

Regards Rob and Lesley Cole


Hi Anastasia,

Just a quick note to convey our personal thanks for the way you prepared and organised our recent Ghan /Princess cruise.

Your attention to detail and the many connections we had were always smooth and first class.

Our trip went off without a hitch thanks to your excellent work.

You are obviously a very talented travel agent. 

We hope to travel again next year and won’t hesitate to contact you.

kind regards

Denis and Jenny Shelton
