Real Guest Testimony
This trip was one of the highlights of my life. I wish I had planned to stay longer. The performances were outstanding, the food was great, and my stay at the spa hotel absolutely relaxing. I feel refreshed and rejuvenated in both body and spirit. There is only one little problem. I can't stop talking about this perfect holiday to my friends.
The Amazon cruise on the Tucano exceeded all of our expectations. The boat was very clean, staff was prompt when requests were made, food delicious with the best fresh eggs I ever had! I also loved the deserts and guides outstanding knowledge of the area. Thanks for all the memories we will take home with us!
When I first contacted Blue Danube Holidays, I was surprised at how knowledgeable their staff was and their willingness to give us practical advice on how to organize our holiday. Our trip turned out to be very fulfilling and marvelous; the hotels were perfect; all services and transfers were right on time. We wish to book our next trip with you again.
My family and I have returned from our wonderful trip. I just wanted to drop you an email and let you know how the trip was. First of all, the local people were very organized and took care of all of our needs. Rasheed, was fantastic. He was very polite, and made sure every part of our trip was perfect.
The accommodations were wonderful. The food was excellent and the staff went above and beyond. We were so happy to have stayed an extra day prior to our tour because it was the highlight. Our group was small and intimate. We made fast friends with a South African family. We were sad to leave, but are taking home with us many great memories and we made so many new friends.
I will recommend this trip and your travel company to my friends, and we will continue to use Blue Danube Holidays for our future travel. Thank you so much for organizing this fantastic trip for us. Now onward to our next adventure!
