It gives me great pleasure writing this testimonial after returning from a great adventure and awesome holiday. It didn't take much for Petro to understand exactly what I was looking for, leaving everything in her more than capable hands (which I didn't realise at the time just how capable). I got updates when I needed and was informed with due notice when something had to be paid or sent through. I must be honest with so little involvement from my side there was a little worrying voice in me when we embarked on our journey, but as soon as we got to the airport I realised that voice was completely unnecessary and it only got better from there. From our great seats on the plane, thanks to her online check ins to the pick up services at the airports and hotels, everything without a hitch. The hotels she chose were amazing, not to mention the added benefits and complimentary features. Tours and trips organised by her from this side on our journey were perfect, not once did we wait for a taxi to come and pick us up or delay us. Even a phone call at the hotel just to make sure that we are fine and enjoying ourselves, this lady really gives it her all. Petro will definitely be my first step in planning our next trip or holiday.

What a pleasure it was working with Petro Rossouw! Petro helped to plan our Honeymoon from A - Z. I must say that in the 11 days spent in Thailand, Everything was 100% organised. We never had to stress about the travel arrangements so we could just relax and enjoy our stay. Thank you so much for planning our dream honeymoon, thanks to you we have the most amazing memories of Thailand and none of the issues that I keep hearing about from others. We will definitely be in contact to plan our next holiday.

As a frequent traveller I had numerous problems in the past UNTIL a friend introduced me to Petro Rossouw. Nothing is ever too much to ask for. Petro truly goes out of her way to assist me in all my travelling needs ... air tickets, accommodation, car hire, visas etc. I can strongly recommend her for efficient outstanding service! Thank you, Petro for all you have done in the past and I know that we will make use of your services again.

I just want to express our deepest gratitude to your agent, Petro Rossouw, for the excellent and personal service rendered to me on my recent trip to Uganda and Kenya. The fire at JKIA caused cancellations and then deferments of my flights. Petro kept in contact with me all the way the situation - even after hours - expressing concern for my welfare and doing everything possible within her power to get me on the soonest available flight back home. What was traumatic for other travellers was 'restful' for me because of the kindness and personal sacrifices made by Petro. Thank you so very much. I will have no hesitation at all recommending Travel Counsellors - especially Petro - to any person wanting to travel abroad. Grateful, Randolph Barnwell

I am rest assured that I am always getting the best! Thank you Petro you are great!

For the past 10 years Petro has been my personal travel agent, I found her very competent, helpful, patient and understanding. She is always willing to help under all circumstances at anytime. For a couple of years I was a platinum card holder (in other words I did a lot of travelling all over the world) and Petro was of great assistance and a pleasure to work with.

We were invited to our annual Gold Conference in October 2017, a boat cruise from Genoa to Marseille and we decided to do a quick stopover in Paris. Paris may be the city of love and is one of the most romantic places in the world, and I’ve been having a little romance with the city itself. It turns out I LOVE Paris. We spent the day wandering among some of the main attractions, stopping for café lattes and macaroons, and we explored the ‘City of Light’ on a hop-on-hop-off bus tour! This is the BEST way to explore Paris,...
