    I have organised my travel with World Travel Connections for over 10 years now. It has always been very easy. Staff are pleasant and prompt in responding to any queries. My wife and I organised recently an anniversary trip. Nicolas and Janet at World Travel Connections made it so easy. There knowledges thoroughly helped us. We wish to thank them once again for putting together such wonderful trip together. I recommend this agency to anyone wanting personalised service. We even had a free taxi to take us to the airport and take us back home.

    Yes we are back. Everything went well. The car transports in Brisbane and Phuket were all on time and drivers very courteous. Le Meridien was an excellent resort and we appreciated being out of the maddening crowd (Patong). Although we did go to Patong on several days for cheaper food/meals. Breakfast at Le Meriden was buffet and first class Plenty of security so felt completely at ease at the resort plus the benefits of the pools and exclusive use of beach. Rooms and room service could not be faulted. Singapore Swissotel likewise was excellent. Buffet breakfast first class. Rooms and room service excellent. Plenty to see and do but 3 days not enough time to do Singapore justice.

    Although a little tired the experience was 5 star.

    Thank you for your professional and efficient handling of numerous, difficult and complicated travel arrangements for me (including unusual routes through Europe, Asia and Middle East) – all went extremely well! However, thank you more so, for your exceptional kindness and care when your assistance was needed urgently and ‘out of hours’. This was much appreciated, especially as I was travelling on my own. Looking forward to the next one! Thank you!

    To the Customers and New Travellers,

    I have arranged my travel through World Travel Connections for about 10 years now as a frequent traveller.  The firm, run by Nicolas Delacharlerie and…, has always provided me with the best travel options, the best access to deals and promotions and most importantly ready access by email or phone wherever I am in the world.  They certainly have their customer’s interest at heart.  They are a pleasure to sit down and discuss plans in a friendly yet professional capacity. They will continue to have my business because of their professionalism and caring nature.

    On behalf of Natalie Maree Caruana, Emmah Caruana, Sarah Caruana and I we would like to thank Nicolas and Janet of World Travel Connections. Amazing personal service, unique destinations, no place he wasn’t totally accross and his flexibility and compassion given our personal circumstances was and is amazing. He personally drove us to the airport. We could not recommend any other travel agent. A new friend for life. Thanks again Nicolas.

    Natalie & Robert

    Nicolas we loved it! You put together a great package. Savanna Private Game Reserve in Sabi Sands was probably the benchmark in the safari lodge space but Chobe & Xugana Island were also very good. Savanna really succeeds in limiting the number of Jeeps at wildlife sightings so it greatly maximises the experience. They are also more prepared to go off road rather than stick to recognised tracks. Great stuff when chasing a pack of wild dogs after Impala & a Waterbuck. We saw all the Big Five by the end of the first full day but not limited to static viewing—- really active sightings sometimes.  Vic Falls are amazing!! As was Table Mountain.  The Blue Train was also well worth doing. All transfers by the two main businesses were exceptionally professional & informative. Small planes,mud/grass runways, dingy pickup etc in the Delta was all very different!

    Finishing it off at Trou aux Biches in Mauritius was just what we needed after all of the above.

    Highly recommended the whole thing.

    Regards,

    Nick and Janelle

    Hi Nicolas

    Thank you so much for arranging our Europe trip this year. Everything ran smoothly and we had an amazing time. We want you to know how much we appreciated your great customer service through the planning and during the trip itself. We look forward to the day we can do another trip like this and you’ll be the first one we call!

    Kind regards, JP and N

    Thank you for taking such fabulous care of my family on our recent overseas trip. You demonstrated considerable ingenuity in sourcing tricky and urgent flight arrangements. You went above and beyond to ensure our family had a positive travel experience and I felt completely supported knowing that you were always just a phone call or email away. We look forward to travelling with you again.

    Warm regards, Gaby

    Hi Nicolas, We are back!
