I travelled with some Travel colleagues to the Islands of the Seychelles in 2001. Our hosts for this trip were Air Seychelles, Beachcomber Tours, Seyunique, Tourist Office of the Seychelles and Ground Operators, Masons Tours. We flew from Johannesburg on Air Seychelles, our flight was friendly, comfortable and non-stop to our destination, Mahe . Nothing prepares for you for the beauty of the Seychelles, as you fly over the islands the ocean is almost too blue, the water almost too clear and the sand almost too white - this is...

My journey to Brazil was eagerly anticipated. I arrived in Manaus at around two in the afternoon and went straight on to a river boat to travel out to the "Meeting of The Waters". This is where the rivers Rio Negro and Solimoes meet and form what is known as the Amazon River. The waters travel together for a distance of some 8-9km before finally becoming one amazing river. Tired as I was I could not help but be completely overawed by the sight that lay before me. The city of Manaus lies...

I was delayed in South Africa as my husband was ill & he then died. I had to travel back to the UK on my own for the first time-Moira dealt with all my travel details most efficiently & with much compassion for me. I felt as if I was in a very safe pair of hands. I will certainly continue to use Moira for my future travel arrangements.

Moira was wonderful to work with and very patient in dealing with three different girls leading three different lives. All of her plans came off without a hitch and the holiday was great! Thanks so much Moira.

I trust Moira with all my business visa and travel insurance arrangements. What a pleasure not to have to deal with any of it myself. Moira always gives extra advice on airlines and other options, it’s like having a friend in the travel business. I highly recommend her travel services.

Moira organised us the best cruise ever. The effort from her side was amazing. We just told her where we wanted to go, how much we wanted to spend and she did everything else. We had a great Starlight Cruise in December ‘08, all thanks to her time and patience with first time travellers. We will make use of het again and again. Thanks Moira Eldri, Ronel and Annarie
