“You may recall my husband Bill and I as previous long term residents and Country Club Members of Sanctuary Cove. Despite our relocation to the Sunshine Coast we have now arranged overseas travel with Susan Mallinson on several occasions.
We would like to record our thanks to Susan for her professionalism and warmth towards us as clients – we wanted you to know that it has been a pleasure doing business with her.”
“I just wanted to thank you for the excellent job you did planning the trip we have just taken to Vietnam with Mum and Dad.
We had a great time and your professional expertise was clearly evident in the selection of hotels, travel guides etc. Inter Asia were particularly good on the ground and were very responsive on the couple of occasions when there were minor hiccoughs. The general pacing of the trip was excellent and showed a good understanding of Mum and Dad’s needs. Thanks once again.”
“We had a very relaxing and enjoyable cruise. This time we got to Napier and two out of the three ‘Sounds’ which were breathtaking.
We thank you for your most professional and courteous service. It is always a pleasure to deal with you and Cove Travel. We will be in touch for our future travel needs.”
“Our wonderful six-week holiday began in China, where we visited Shanghai, Beijing and the breathtaking Great Wall. Then we embarked on a 23-night cruise visiting South Korea and Japan, ending up in Vancouver. A few days in San Francisco and a trip to the Nappa Valley followed before reaching our last stop, Los Angeles.
A special thank you to Christa from Cove Travel who put together our trouble free itinerary. Her recommendations and attention to detail made this another great holiday.”
“Just a note to tell you how much Jill Archer & I enjoyed your ‘Hyatt experience’. We loved every minute of the Bridge – both the lessons and the play, as well as meeting and getting to know you.
As ‘beginners’ we have never played so much Bridge in such a short time before! It was a wonderful experience and we both learnt so much.
We would be very interested in attending more of your sessions in the future.”
“Tammy Hubbard here, just wanting to thank you and tell you that both Louise and myself learnt a great deal and enjoyed ourselves probably a little too much at your bridge lessons. We will be back.”
“A quick note from me to say how much I enjoyed the couple of days I spent at Sanctuary Cove with you. It was fantastic and hopefully the lessons will improve my play. It was my first time away with a bunch of bridge players and loved it so, thank you!”
“Many thanks for a wonderful few days – being able to live and breathe bridge for that long was wonderful even if my brain was somewhat scrambled (positively mushy) at times. I would love to come again. Loved the lessons with the questions and comments which expanded each lesson to cover so much of the ‘ifs’ we are sure to come across.
Loved the play sessions, the people, the dinners were amazing value.”
“I want to say thank you to Christa for everything she did for us on our recent trip. Her organisational skills are amazing and the special things she did for us are greatly appreciated, in particular the celebratory birthday cake, card, etc. that appeared at Arthur’s 75-year-old-side somewhere high in the clouds between Dubai and Rome. Her advice was invaluable when it came to arranging our holiday and I wouldn’t have missed the experience for anything.”
“We are so grateful that we met Susan from Cove Travel shortly after we got engaged. Although we had an idea of the type of honeymoon we wanted we were so pleased that she could give us so many options.
Thank you Susan for not only intoducing us to Matangi Private Island Resort (absolute paradise) but for planning every last detail and even being there for us during the grounding of the Qantas fleet. We will never forget this perfect dream!”
“Bula … we stayed at Vomo Island Resort in September and had an outstanding time!
We booked our holiday through Jacki Whitlock at Cove Travel and we can’t thank her enough for recommending Vomo, which exceeded our expectations!
We have booked several holidays with Jacki who always goes above and beyond with her service. She welcomes any questions, is honest with advice and responds in short time. We have been very satisfied with the service we have received from Jacki and will be booking our next holiday through her.”
“A wonderful experience, especially spending quality time with and getting to know our fellow companions. We had a great journey – thank you for organising everything so well Cove Travel.”
“We were shown how compellingly captivating the African continent is. We just loved the whole trip.”
“From island palms to exciting wildlife safaris and valleys of vineyards – it was a wonderful adventure.”
“Fantastic trip. Wonderful group of people. Cape Town and staying at Table Bay Hotel was definitely a highlight.”
“Our first ever trip to this part of the world was made all the better by the professional planning and attention from Cove Travel.”
“The adrenalin rush of being escorted through the Phinda Game Park bush to our cabin, knowing that earlier that evening we had seen many wild animals, including the Big Five, close to the resort was a magic moment.”
“The best thing about Cove Travel’s three-week South African tour was the people we met. We had a lovely time.”
For the past 10 years I have conducted biennial Visual Art Tours to Europe for large groups of students. For each tour, I have enlisted the assistance of Cove Travel (Susan Mallison) to organise flights, accommodation, internal flights, transport between cities and gallery visits.
The tour’s success relies on sound organisation and good communication. Susan was outstanding in every respect – and this has been the case with all the tours entrusted to her since 2009.
I have found Cove Travel to be professional, efficient and totally accommodating of our excessive demands. Worth mentioning is the availability of staff both while we were travelling and prior to the tour. We were so pleased with every aspect.
I would have no hesitation in strongly recommending this agency to any school/business group requiring efficiency and professionalism.
