What our customers say

Sharon Griffin was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I have been running trips for over 20 years, and often I have felt ripped off by tour companies. Inevitably changes happen when organising trips, particularly with students dropping out etc. Sharon dealt well with all my requests, and was available for help on her days off and over weekends. The Vamoos app was absolutely fantastic by the way. Brilliant bit of kit.
