Meredith Balfe, Australia

As we were travelling to an area of the world where we knew nothing, Amazilia Travel took all the problems out of the organization. they explained the good areas to visit, picked excellent hotels for our budget and activities and were always available when I could not read something properly or needed extra information. The patience was endless. When we had some last minute changes they sorted everything out with no fuss. Very professional, diligent and efficient. We would not have asked for better service.
