Don’t just take our word for it

Thank you both for such an interesting and memorable holiday. I have wanted to visit the 'Big Apple' for sometime, so when I saw your itinerary with the passage up the coast to Halifax, it was perfect. I was amazed at the huge efforts you both made in Boston to make good out of a difficult situation. (Furlongs Travel: Hurtigruten's expedition ship FRAM broke down for two days). All the visits you arranged at such short notice were delightful and educational, and the residents so welcoming. Your attention to detail and our welfare is well known and certainly shone through on this voyage. Thank you for the happy memories you have given us.

Susie, Northallerton

Thank you both for such a memorable trip to New York, New England and Nova Scotia. As always your organisation was superb as you thought of everything and looked after us so well. Your arrangements for trips in Boston were excellent, informative and enjoyable and formed a seamless interlude to the rest of the holiday. (Furlongs Travel note: Hurtigruten's FRAM broke down in Boston and we stayed an extra 2 nights). The final dinner in Halifax rounded off a fascinating 12 days so nicely - my 25th trip with you since 1991 - and I look forward to learning about your future plans in due course. Once again, my thanks to you both.

Once again we have enjoyed an excellent holiday with Furlongs Travel. Our expectations not just met, but exceeded, even though all your careful planning was subject to considerable challenges. We were very grateful for the extremely successful way in which you handled the unexpected circumstances that befell the FRAM. (Furlongs Travel note: Hurtigruten's expedition ship FRAM broke down in Boston and we stayed an extra 2 days). The visits to Lexington and Concord turned out to be highlights of the trip. We also enjoyed sharing the fun and excitement of the aquarium with families and young children, and the contrasting experience at the JFK library and museum. With our very best wishes.

Well you have done it again!! We thought after a tremendous holiday in Galapagos, anything else would be a supporting role. Your carefully planned itinerary covered such a wide variety of animals, including local bird life, we found it difficult to keep up!! Your information/documentation and organisation (including wonderful surprises), were again to the fore, and your local Guide and driver were both superb. Thank you for a great holiday, everyone contemplating such a trip should join you on Namibia 2017 if they have not booked already!!

A "huge thanks" for an amazing holiday in Namibia. Although back to the daily grind, we are still smiling about the things we saw and did!

Martin and Helen, West Kensington, London

Thank you both so much for everything you did to make our recent trip to Namibia such a wonderful experience. Your careful planning, selection of accommodation, itinerary, guide and driver, and your unfailing attention to detail at every stage of the holiday made it all so easy and enjoyable for us, your guests. Your humour and professionalism shone through at every stage and we felt so safe and cared-for. I can’t believe we saw and experienced so much in the time – my head and my camera are full of pictures! I knew we would see animals but we also gained an in-depth knowledge of this fascinating and complex country and its courageous people. I honestly did not think I would enjoy it as much as our trip to Galapagos but in fact, it surpassed even that amazing experience. I am truly addicted to Furlongs holidays – you are the best and I can’t thank you enough for the incredible privilege of having travelled with you to Namibia. Can’t wait to see the itineraries for 2017 and the future!

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our fabulous trip to Namibia. From Richard greeting us at Heathrow, boarding cards in hand, through all the surprises and treats along the way, the fabulous scenery and wildlife, and the worry free travel. The accommodation was all wonderful, so varied and unique. We loved all the lodges, and the bungalows in Damaraland, with their little veg, fruit and flower gardens. The sunsets and sunrises were amazing, spectacular, beautiful and often seen with a glass of wine in hand, as for the scenery, stunning sand dunes and salt pans that defy imagination. On to the wildlife, there are no words to describe a herd of eight elephants, marching single file to the waterhole and ending up about 20 yards away, or tracking a pair of cheetahs and seeing mammals we had never heard of before, like an aardwolf, or steenbok.  Just amazing, we saw over 30 species of mammal, including lion, cheetah, leopard, giraffe, elephant, zebra, hyena, warthog and countless different antelopes. Thanks must go to August, whose driving and good humour was second to none, and your guide Uanee, whose good humour and knowledge of the country and it's wildlife was limitless. Thank you for all your help along the way, for sorting everything out and for the best holiday ever. 

Norma and Steve, Aylesbury, Bedfordshire.

A short thank you does not really cover the gratitude we have for your organisation and implementation of our wonderful trip to Africa. I could try to write a long thank you covering all the items that make the holiday so interesting and carefree for us, but that would take too much typing!  Suffice to say that both the Ecuador trip and the Namibia trip were superb holidays.

Russell and I wanted to thank you so much for our recent amazing trip to Namibia with Furlongs Travel. You made our trip truly unforgettable with not only your wonderful personalities but all the planning and little extra touches that you provided that made us feel totally at ease and stress free.
