  • "Russell has been my travel agent for many years and has always been an amazing supportive and caring person to work with, but this year he went above and beyond supporting me through the messy situation created through the Covid 19. My flight back with Korean Air was cancelled and rebooked so many times, with cancellation after cancellation following and through it all Russell was there, always available for a chat, looking for ways and options to get me back home. I and am so grateful to Russell for standing by me through it all."

    -Kate Ramsay
  • We would HIGHLY recommend Jane and her team. She helped us plan & book a recent trip to Japan. Everything was so well organised and their recommendations of places to stay including planning of transfers between locations was fantastic. We chose to experience a traditional Ryokan on arrival in Tokyo, then 5 days skiing in Hakuba where we stayed at Mominoki Hotel ( LOVED IT) and then a few more days in Shibuya at the Cerulean Towers which was a beautiful hotel in a great location. Wouldn't change a thing and would do it all again in a heart a beat.
