Africa and The Middle East
My name is Eloise Fischer and I have been in the travel industry for the past 25 years.
Throughout my travel career, I have been extremely fortunate to work with a variety of clients. In my first 9 years I was part of a very dynamic travel management company in Pretoria. It was here that I perfected my corporate travel skills under the guidance of the best corporate team. I worked with both large government departments right down to smaller private corporate businesses, honing my corporate travel skills.
15 years ago I moved down to Shelly Beach on the South Coast and turned my energy largely into looking after leisure travel although I do still manage corporate business.
I have been very lucky to have travelled extensively throughout the world, from the very exciting city of London, throughout Europe, the Far East, Australia, Africa and cruising our local Africa shores.

I was lucky to be part of 1 of the 26 Travel Counsellors who won an educational of a lifetime to Australia. My first treat started when I checked in at the Qantas desk in Johannesburg. I was flying BUSINESS CLASS! Qantas really knows how to treat their business class passengers. It was such a treat and a really special experience. I arrived a couple of days ahead of the group so that I could spend some quality time with my brother who lives in Chatswood on the other side of the bridge. When...

This was my first trip to Spain and I got to go to Marbella! A very beautiful town along the Costa del Sol. I was most fortunate to be part of a fantastic group of fellow Travel Counsellors attending the annual Travel Counsellors Conference which was held in Marbella. We were whisked off on Iberian Airlines to Madrid, where we landed at an enormous airport. We had to take a train from one terminal to the next (I thought Heathrow was big but Barajas was just as huge!) Another 1 hour flight and we landed in Malaga to the sound of...

When arriving at the entrance of Ushaka, we were met with a very professional team of staff. I have been to quite a few International zoos and aquariums and it definitely is on par, if not better. There are various tickets to purchase. We purchased the SeaWorld pass as it was too cold to take part in the water world activities. To get to SeaWorld we had to make our way down a maze of walkways to the belly of a huge old ship that has been converted into a viewing area for the fish. This really added to...

I arrived in Dubai at the hottest time of the year. Day temperatures in August reach 46 degrees and by 6 in the evening it still does not get any cooler. The weather was not going to spoil this trip though. When arriving in Dubai, we were met by Arabian Adventures and transported to the Pearl Residence Apartments. The rooms were above standard and each had its own mini kitchen. After dumping our bags, we hit the town. We decided to walk the 3 or 4 blocks to the nearest market. Wow, the heat was really unbearable, but we...

The first of the Fischer party (four of us) departed for Australia and the other five of us followed the road down under 2 weeks later. What excitement! A whole 22 hours of “excitement”. Any mother will know the fear of travelling such a long distance with a five year old. What started out as fear turned into a great experience onboard Emirates. The staff were friendly, the food was good (and just kept coming! Much to my waistlines dismay) and the entertainment was outstanding (Ice Entertainment kept my son, Joshua, busy for almost 18 hours nonstop.)...

“I have been dealing with Eloise for about 4 years, and she is not only an excellent travel agent but an amazing human being who I now consider a friend. Her knowledge of the industry is vast, which makes het trustworthy and capable to manage the most difficult bookings. She is always willing to assist no matter how big or small the request, she does this with efficiency and professionalism. I would definitely recommend Eloise.”

I have known Eloise for a number of years as an individual. She is always very helpful and is available 24 hours, 7 days a week. Eloise has arranged various trips overseas for me, the latest being a 4 week holiday to Queensland in Australia including a 2 night stopover in Dubai. All bookings were well arranged. With her friendly, efficient and professional assistance I can recommend her to anyone.

We have been dealing with Eloise for a number of years and have had no reason to doubt her capability in putting the right travel deal together for us. We have trusted, and with sound confidence in her getting us from the most sophisticated of countries such as America to the most obscure places in China. Her willingness, attention to detail and efficiency will take her a long way in her chosen business. We have never had a phone call or a message unanswered no matter what time of day or night. Keep it up Eloise we have a lot still planned. Oh and a bonus it is ALWAYS done with a smile!

I have always found Eloise to be extremely helpful and informative insofar as all our travel arrangements both locally and internationally are concerned. She was also extremely supportive with travel plans gone awry regarding a connecting flight to Canada at Heathrow Airport and telephonically contacted the airlines concerned to resolve the matter. She is always available for information and very accommodating should travel arrangements need to be changed. We, both my husband and I, rate her services to be of the highest standard and will continue to make use of her expertise in booking our future travels.

My husband and I would hereby like to formally thank you and your organisation for all the help and effort you have provided us with regard to the "liquidation matter of Nationwide Airlines". Were it not for all your efforts and for the special insurance your company has in place, which covers for liquidations of other company's, my husband and I would have lost an extortionate amount of money and would have not been able to afford replacement tickets to visit my daughter and son in law in the United Kingdom.
