Why Exceptional Travel?
Toby and his team are the definition of exceptional. Our honeymoon was perfect, we will never go away again without consulting Toby and the team and will be sending all our family and friends immediately to them. EH, 2019
A fantastic service - nothing ever too much - excellent guidance and venues. We had a fantastic holiday in Sri Lanka in July. Would most definitely recommend Exceptional Travel. Lukey and Toby were amazing. Many, many thanks. TB, 2019
Toby was excellent. Having used larger firms before, Toby organised our honeymoon and was personal, responsive, understood our needs and ultimately, delivered a 10/10 trip. He has clients for life in us. Well done. JH, 2019
Really really appreciate you helping us get everything setup and putting together such an amazing trip for us. Truly the most amazing experience! SS, 2019
Thank you so much for all your efficient work coordinating our logistics.
It has been the most memorable few days and everything has run like clockwork.
We both wanted to thank you for your help in arranging our trip. It was fabulous from start to finish, each day somehow surpassing the prior. It was just terrific. Thank you. We will be in touch again!
It truly was very exceptional. Great trip and thanks to your careful planning and attention to detail, we had such a happy, enjoyable holiday. S&RB, 2019
Just a note to thank you SO MUCH for making our holiday so truly wonderful. ZM, 2019
We have come home with so many wonderful memories and approximately 2,000 photos.... Thank you so much for organising it all for us, India is a fascinating country and I’m sure we will want to explore more of it in the future. PW, 2019
We couldn't have been more delighted with our trip. Your ground team covered everything and were so charming and efficient that it all went terribly smoothly....We would recommend Exceptional Travel to all our friends and can't wait for our trip to Sri Lanka with them next year. JW 2018
I am so grateful to have had all of your assistance as the trip wouldn’t have been as incredible without it. I’ve already been spreading good word about Exceptional Travel and will be in touch when I am ready for the next trip of a lifetime! EH, 2018
We just wanted to send a quick thank you for putting together an absolutely AMAZING trip! It went above and beyond our expectations. We are all back to the routine today (in the freezing cold, quite a switch) but couldn’t let the day get started without getting in touch. Thank you again for all of our your help in organising – we can’t wait to go back! AS, 2018
Another ‘Exceptional’ trip! Our amazing guide ensured we had a truly memorable experience… thank you! VW, 2018
So all in all I can say we had a fabulous holiday - the briefing notes and the folder you provided us with were excellent.
Where to next? . . . . . . . . . .
Thank you for arranging a wonderful holiday for us. Please feel free to use our names as endorsers of the highest recommendations of your services! BS&MS, 2018
What a trip. Thank you very much for arranging a truly splendid honeymoon…. In short good trip, well done, good work! BT, 2017
I just wanted to thank you for the absolutely fabulous trip we had. Everything was organised to perfection, I really cannot find anything I would want you to change. We will definitely use your services again. AP, 2017
You have provided us with a genuinely exceptional holiday. Both Ras Kutani and Siwandu were excellent in all respects; they delivered exactly what they promised in their websites which is rare. The locations in themselves are fantastic. The quality of customer care was remarkable, from managers down to the most junior member of staff and the standard of food and accommodation was exemplary. We were very well looked after. The blend of Indian Ocean and Safari in one short trip worked well and the highlight has to be the game drives with a most knowledgeable, friendly and flexible guide. We were fortunate in that many of the other guests turned out to be like-minded making the evenings into very sociable affairs. Your administration of the travel was faultless, in particular the internal air connections worked beautifully; on two of the 3 flights we had our own private plane. In short, from first contact I have been impressed by your exceptional service and we have enjoyed the most memorable holiday with the Selous Safari Company. Thank you. JT, 2017
Your team were AMAZING. I honestly would have been lost without them. They went above and beyond every day, and didn’t bat an eyelid at our insane hours and hectic schedule. Kerry helped me with so many things that had nothing to do with the service he’d been hired to provide. I only wish I had have known him better sooner, as I would have brought him on board for the prep as well! And the camping was great. They really did the best they could in very challenging conditions.So thanks very much for all of your help and for introducing me to Kerry and his team. They were great. EC, 2017
We have had a lovely time and very much enjoyed ourselves. Our time travelling around was made by having a really good guide ( Shantha) who was hugely knowledgeable about the historical sites and the wild life as well as being a very good driver in a very comfortable Nissan SUV. I am very grateful that your ground representaives arranged for us to visit my Grandfather’s bungalow and, in spite of it being closed, a guided tour of the factory. Our guide, on the way, told us as we passed a little church that it was the only Anglican church in the area ( quite a long way from Watawala) and it would be worth stopping to see if Grand father was buried there. We stopped on the way back and sure enough as I walked through the gate his grave was the first one I saw. It was really rather an emotional moment. Yala was stuffed full of lovely birds which was great….. CEC, 2017
Thank you so much for your reccommendations given our very specific brief! The island was fabulous, really amazing and perfect for families and adults only. The standard of food, drink, service was very high and the kids club was amazing and the nannies were of a very high standard. The staff were great and the general layout and facilities really worked for us.The snorkelling and diving did not disappoint either. I would def recommend to others.Thanks for your help. GS, 2017
In short [the trip] was fantastic! Your representatives on the ground inclduing thier to get us drivers and guides was fantastic! Personable, knowledgeable and they basically smoothed out any travel frictions that arose along the way so that we truly were able to relax and just enjoy the trip. In particular shanta, who I think was the main coordinator of our team, was just fantastic. So knowledgeable and so experienced and he always worked hard to troubleshoot on our behalf and make suggestions to enhance our experience. The vehicles were all exactly as pictured and the drivers were always prompt and their English speaking skills were also good. I can’t say enough how great it all was…… All in all I am so grateful for your help on the trip — it made a tremendous difference in the quality of our experience and I would not hesitate to use your service and recommend it going forward.
