We enjoyed the Solomons immensely. I was reminded of the way air travel and hospitality once was. Understated, very friendly with no time pressures and everything UNDER commercialised.
I found the accommodation and general services good value for money. We are very aware of the costs associated with running a business in remote areas and I think both John and Karen at Fatboys and Joe and Lisa at Zipolu Habu charge quite reasonably given the economics of the area. The staffing and quality of service at both places was extremely good.
Solomon Islands Airlines were surprisingly good given that all their domestic services are managed without recourse to computers. I was reminded of the good old days of TAA and Ansett-ANA and the old hand written passenger manifests. All flights were on time and their international service was as good as anything else we’ve had lately.
Thanks again for helping set all this up for us. Would we go back? Probably. We like this kind of holiday; simple in an exotic environment among good people.

Our holiday was wonderful thanks. You did an excellent job with the itinerary. It was certainly the easiest travelling I have done!
The highlight for us was Machu Picchu. It was a hard slog but Craig proposed to me when we got to the top so it was all worth it. Our hiking group was also really great. I could not have picked a better group to spend 4 days camping with.
The Galapagos was also amazing. The service and catering on the boat was excellent and we had a good combination of activities and relaxation time. Again our tour guide and group was really good.
Thanks again for all your assistance with making this such a memorable holiday.
I have been trying unsuccessfully to get in touch with you since Monday this week. Naturally you are very busy person, and if you are having more clients like me and my wife I can perfectly understand that. It took a lot of work to dispatch our kind away.
I would like to point out that without your efforts and work our sudden and unplanned departure would be a lot more complicated (not to mention expensive!). Our times and connecting flights were beautifully tidied up and worked without a hiccup. We even had unplanned overnight stay in Hong Kong! (due 4hr delay from Cairns).
I have flown many times and I have a lot of travel agents up my sleeve. I can ensure you that in every aspect you have done a magnificent job in this difficult time for us (especially my wife) with highest degree of professionalism, dedication and understanding I have ever encounter. Both of us are very indebted for your efforts, and if you think that I will ever use anything else but BLT for my travel arrangements you are wrong. It is more than a pleasure to be served by you. Thank you.
Best of Regards
I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank You’ to you for the great trip you organised for us. Everything went well and we had a really busy, but very enjoyable, time – there certainly is lots and lots to see over in Hong Kong. I can now see why it’s one of your favourite places to visit. Anyway, thanks again Andrea and I’m sure the people you are taking over there (can’t remember when) will have a great time thanks to you also.

We have been back home for one week and now that we have settled back to reality I am taking this opportunity to thank you for all your help in making the cruise the best cruise holiday anyone could ever have. Everything went according to plan. There were no hiccups. The Diamond Princess was spectacular and the day excursions were amazing. So on behalf of the four of us I say thank you for everything and we will contact you when we decide to cruise again.

Good afternoon Margaret,
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you, and the other staff at BLT on behalf of myself, Amanda and AQIS for your assistance in regards to our movement of the piglet. We understand that the changing conditions, departure times and the late notice provided you (and us!) with a challenge and we appreciate your helpfulness and flexibility.
We look forward to using your services again.
With thanks and kindest regards

This is a very big thankyou to you and your team for getting me home as fast as possible.
Everything went like clockwork.
There’s lots to do here now I am back.

We received your postcard welcoming us home from our holiday, we both agree that the content of our holiday was wonderful, although the flying time took a bit out of us. We were impressed with most ports of call with the exception of Alexandria (wasn’t keen on Cairo either). We were impressed with the beautiful ancient architecture in Rhodes and Malta, overall the cruise line and cruise was great.
When we have the opportunity to travel overseas again we’ll give you a call, again thanks for all your assistance.

A big thank you for your assistance with the group booking for our trip to Brisbane for the Torres Strait exhibition. All travel went well. Hope you enjoyed the weekend – sorry to have missed the actual opening, but seeing the lead up activities and the exhibition was the next best.
