On behalf of John and myself, we would like to thank yourself especially and LWTL for setting up a great trip to the HK7. As you know this was on John’s bucket list and he had a smashing time. The whole trip was well organised throughout and even the downpour on Saturday did little to dampen spirits.Many thanks to you and I wish you well in the future.
Hi Jo, Back now safe and sound after a great holiday. Thanks to you and LWTL for arranging everything. It all went very well and we shall certainly be recommending you to our friends. I thought your service was by far the best of the companies I approached and was good value.Despite the weather in HK (and you only delivering a second place for England!) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and our trip to Phuket was very good. So many thanks for everything and we might see you again sometime.
Hi Jo, I just want to thank living with the lions for a wonderful trip to Hong Kong 7’s it was a truly great experience from start to finish, it was very well organised from booking to check in, flights, transfers,accommodation and tickets.
I certainly hope to use your services again in the future.
Jo, I can say without doubt that this trip will take some beating. The transfers to Singapore and back were smooth and the whole Raffles thing surreal. The sevens were the craziest most fantastic occasion with an adequate, comfortable room with great service and view from 31st floor. Good of you to lay on the thunder and lightning which was an added show. As for you, you were great. There when we needed you with a warm welcome and advice but never in our faces. Thank you.
