AUSTRALIAN SPLENDOURS

Thanks for the excellent arrangements made by Vacations Exotica for our tour to Australia (Cairns & Sydney). The entire program went on as per plan and we did not face any problem in pick up, accommodation, site seeing, food etc.

- Mr. Ravikrishnan. 

AUSTRALIAN SPLENDOURS

Our Australian Splendors tour was great and we enjoyed it thoroughly. 

Everything was well organised in all places and we didn't have any problem as such.

The hotels in Melbourne, Cairns and Gold coast were really good.

A special thanks to our Tour Manager for making our tour more enjoyable and exiting. She made us feel comfortable at every point and also made sure we got good and hot food during each of our meals. Her extensive knowledge about the places helped us a lot to plan things for ourselves during the free time we had. She was extremely friendly and sweet, with her around there was no chance of anything going wrong or bad. 

Everything said and done, we had a wonderful holiday. Thank you to you and your team for all the arrangements.
