What our guests say about this trip

We had a wonderful trip organised by Enchanting Travels. Not only did they meet our expectations they exceeded them. Never have we been on a trip where the coordinator kept in such regular contact. On the one occasion a flight was cancelled and we phoned the local rep, he was out at the airport to help us very quickly. Nothing was too much trouble for your company.

We would not hesitate to recommend Enchanting Travels to anyone and would be happy for any prospective customers to ring us or contact us by email.
