In the Words of Our Clients

Dear Julie We would like to thank you and all the staff in your office for the faultless arrangements you made on our behalf including the cabin we requested and the taxi to and from the docks. We are now studying your brochures and deciding which holiday to book with you for next year.

Mr Hicks

Hi Sharon - Got home late Tuesday night after a marvellous cruise on board Nautica. Thank you so much for all you did for us. Please also thank Amy for all her hard work on the travel guides - they were very useful and educational.

Mr and Mrs Crocker

We returned from our P&O cruise last Saturday 19th December and feel so grateful for the arrangements you made. We would especially like to thank you for getting us a table for 2 in the dining room as with my wife having a hearing problem her life is made a misery on large tables as she cannot hear conversations when more than one person is talking. This is the second time we have used you and will return to you for our next cruise.

Dear Sarah, just a short note to tell you how good the holiday was and to thank you for all your help throughout the booking process. Everything went smoothly, from being collected from home, the three flights and the subsequent pick up at New Orleans Airport for transport to the Hilton Hotel. The hotel was excellent and only a few yards from where the American Queen docked. The stateroom was excellent, the food to die for, both in presentation and quality, with service to match. At each port the vessel stopped at, there were coaches waiting to take us on “hop-on/hop-off" tours with excellent local guides. I would heartily recommend this holiday without reservation. Thank you.


I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for organising a fantastic holiday. The local people in Costa Rica are amongst the friendliest we have encountered anywhere in the world. Pacuare Lodge was a simply awesome experience, the white water rafting in/out of the complex was exhilarating and despite Sally’s trepidation she loved it too. At the lodge itself, the accommodation, food and staff were top draw, could not be faulted. The rain forest is fascinating and to spend a few days without electricity really improves your sleep, amazing. The 2nd destination at Peurto Vieja was a lovely medium sized boutique type hotel and once again staff and facilities were just what we were looking for, relaxed but professional. I would recommend anyone going, rents cycles when they are there, definitely the best way to get around. I would not bother with local currency, US Dollars are just as readily taken absolutely everywhere. At PV, our hotel was surrounded by Toucans, and literally hundreds of monkeys. You have to be prepared for the prehistoric noise the monkeys make, it is a bit like being in a Jurassic Park movie set. Heartily recommend Costa Rica to anyone thinking of visiting Central America, safe, friendly and great local experience.


Dear Julie Thank you for recommending and coaxing me to book a holiday with Just You. Not just that, but making the whole experience of booking a 'singles' holiday easy. As you know I was dubious about travelling alone but after talking to you I decided to go ahead. I thoroughly enjoyed my Discover Sicily holiday and will certainly book with Just You again. Will you please let Just You know how impressed I was with our guide Nensi, she was friendly, informative and caring to our group. A real asset to the company.

Hi Sharon, I'd just like to say thank you to you and Select Travel for organising everything for us, everything went very smoothly apart from that we had a delay of 45minutes on our return to the UK due to the weather in the UK!!!.☔️ The weather in Santorini was perfect for the wedding and the resort where the wedding took place was stunning, it overlooked the bay where all the cruise ships docked, so I'm sure people who have been with Select Travel Cruises have stopped at this port. The hotel we stayed at (Castro in Kamari) was run by a husband and wife and their two daughters, everyone was very friendly and couldn't do enough for you, it was very clean and although fairly basic it was very good value for the price we paid, we had in our room an ensuite with a shower, toilet and basin, air conditioning, tv, fridge, hairdryer, plenty of space for our clothes the bed was king size so plenty of room, we had a balcony with a table and chairs so were able to sit outside as well, the swimming pool was excellent with plenty of sun beds and sunshades and they also gave you towels for around the pool if you asked, you could get a drink at the pool and you could buy a large bottle of water for €1 which saved carrying it back from the supermarket!!. The breakfast was typical Greek with Bread,cheese, meats, boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt and pastries, tea, coffee and fruit juice, home made marmalade and honey and little packets of different jams for your toast, more than enough to get you going for the day!! The family will also organise taxis or minibuses etc for you. The Castro was a bit of a walk to the beach it took us about 10 minutes which isn't far, but there aren't any real paths but we enjoyed the walk and there were different routes to get to the beach where there were supermarkets, bars and restaurants, there was a bus stop not far from the hotel where you could get the bus to Fira for €1:80 and other places on the island. Thanks once again to you and Select Travel for organising our holiday the service that was provided was excellent and we would recommend Select Travel to anyone who wants to book a holiday, personal service is so much better than booking it on the Internet yourself and easier!!!

Liz G

Excellent service all round. I will definitely use Select Travel Holidays again.


Hi Sarah Apologies for my tardy response. It was a fabulous event and thank you for inviting us to it. Please pass our thanks to the rest of the team. Very informative and relaxed. We will definitely book with you for a River Cruise, not quite sure when. Hope you are well. Warm wishes

Mrs Stewart

Thank you Bella for all your patience with us when booking our safari/beach holiday. Everything went so smoothly. It was an experience of a lifetime. Kind regards

Mr & Mrs Snow
