Let me tell you a little story about these two wonderful people, Mr & Mrs. Ross. I first had contact with Kevin roughly 10 years ago, I was working at a large retail travel agency at the time and I received a web enquiry asking for help on an upcoming trip. As I always do, I picked up the phone and called Kevin to discuss what he had in mind. We confirmed a booking and that was the beginning of a wonderful working relationship. After moving over to Travel Counsellors, Kevin and Vanessa remained loyal and continued to book their...

What an incredible privilege to have been picked to join a few SA TC’s for our global conference in the UK. I can't believe it was 3 weekends ago already! It was an experience that I will definitely cherish forever. Arriving in the chilly UK after a great (full, but comfortable) flight on Virgin Atlantic we took a train to Manchester. We visited Travel Counsellors HQ and had a tour of the offices. It was much bigger then I had imagined – but what really stood out to me was the location of Steve, our CEO's office. It was situated...

I had the privilege of staying at the Aha Harbour Bridge Hotel & Suites in Cape Town this weekend. I was the lucky winner of a 2 nights stay with breakfast included! I live in Somerset West, which is a 40-minute drive into the city. With a little baby boy and our daily routines, we rarely get to go into the city, so this was a real treat! The hotel is located on the harbour and is about a 5-minute drive to the Waterfront. It was easy to find and the parking available to guests is securely tucked away in the...

I travelled to Cape Town from Lusaka, Zambia from the 10th - 25th of March 2021. Travel in Africa can be anything but predictable and yet booking through Lyndill produced a completely hassle-free experience. Her dedication to customer service and attention to detail was such a pleasure and I will definitely be working with her again for future trips. If you want to spend more time enjoying your holiday and avoiding the unforeseen road bumps of international travel, I can’t recommend Lyndill’s services enough!

We are off to Croatia! Thank you Lyndill! Having to travel in the midst of a global pandemic, unrealistic border expectations, unexpected flight changes, navigating between negative covid tests, this would not be possible without the help of Lyndill.

We recently had to book flights from South Africa to Chile to visit my husband's family. Due to Covid restrictions, travelling internationally has become extremely complicated. Lyndill went above and beyond to assist us and find the best tickets at the right price. The back and forth process took more than a week, but Lyndill kept working at it and solved issues as they came up. We probably would have given up if she was not there to assist us. It has been a pleasure working with Lyndill and we would recommend her to all our friends and family. We cannot wait for our trip and feel super secure knowing Lyndill will be there to keep an eye and guide us if necessary.

I want to personally thank you from the 6 of us for everything you have done, are doing and will do in the future for us. It has been a 9 year journey with you and I truly find it difficult to put words together to tell you how much I appreciate you, even more so over the past 7 weeks which have been the most eventful of our lives. Jenson’s birth, House fire, Covid-19 lock down, Isabella been hospitalized, home schooling and moving 4 times. In all this chaos the one constant has been you. Thank you for negotiating, arranging and ensuring every single detail has been attended too during this “lockdown”. What I find amazing is the amount of organizing you have done intuitively; I know this comes from a deep understanding of your client’s needs. You are amazing, and I can’t wait to finally meet you at our Wedding later this year.

On both occasions that we have used Lyndill Cilliers to us assist us with flight and travel arrangements to the UK and Europe, we found her to be extremely helpful and efficient. Lyndill always tried to get the best deals to suite our travel needs and always consulted before making any bookings. Once we had agreed on the details, Lyndill kept us informed all the time and also assisted us with travel insurance, VISA application processes and our electronic tickets. All of this made the process very easy for us. Lyndill even followed up to ensure that all went well with the arrangements. We therefore knew that we had a travel expert there for us all the time. We will certainly make use of Lyndill again and thank goodness she was with us to sort out all issues relating to the forced cancellation of our return British Airways booking due to Covid 19. As there has been so much uncertainty regarding what could happen financially, it was very reassuring knowing that Lyndill was there to assist. Once again insuring that we got the best deal from British Airways. We have and will continue to recommend Lyndill to our friends and family

I was most fortunate to have Lyndill’s expertise and her dedication to support me on my side when my travel plans to the Netherlands and USA fell apart due to COVID-19. As a result of her efforts I could avoid an administrative tangle as she seamlessly changed flight and accommodation plans to later dates. There is no substitute for someone like Lyndill who looks after the interests of her clients first and foremost – also after bookings have been completed. This has been my experience with Lyndill as my travel consultant for a decade.

I just want to thank Lyndill in assisting me and my daughter back from Australia on such short notice. We were having such a wonderful holiday with my family in Australia. My husband phoned and said he thinks we must come home due to the Covid-19 it was a shock to me. But it only took one phone call to Lyndill and she organized us new flights back within 12 hours. She is available 24/7 and one can rely on a speedy service every time! And even after I had arrived home she phoned to hear if my flights were ok and that my daughter and I were home safely. I would recommend her for any traveling needs you have may it be local or international.

I would not travel around the block without consulting with Lyndill first. She has done my personal traveling for many years. How can we ever forget our honeymoon almost 11 years ago. To this day we talk and laugh about those beautiful memories. So here we go again. Thank you from the bottom of our souls for once again helping us to make this so special. You are the best and expect an EARFULL from Jolette when we get back, that's if I manage to get her off the Island!!

It's amazing how quickly after my first phone call, our entire holiday was planned and booked. Lyndill made the effort to meet me at a time and place of my choice which adds to the convenience and she gave me good advice on how to make our holiday as cost effective as possible. The myTC travel app is very useful and Lydill set it all up for me while we were meeting. She understands personal touch!
