What our clients say

“Everything was extremely well-organised both pre-departure – with helpful visa advice – and at the China end. All our guides were excellent at their jobs, very friendly and welcoming and made the whole experience very enjoyable and really interesting. The wide area of China we visited gave us a good insight into the country.”
Ashok and Carole Jethwa, China

“Thank you so much for the part you played in arranging our wonderful first visit to India. We had an absolutely fantastic time. Punctuality and reliability of your local staff were excellent and it was a treat to have the undivided attention of such well informed and knowledgeable people for whom nothing was too much trouble.Our driver was exemplary and we felt very safe and well cared for with him.”
Roger and Fiona Hennah, India

“The Vietnam trip was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed it – memorable for all the right reasons. In particular the hotels were well-chosen and uniformly of a very high standard, and each had its own individual character. Our local guides were also excellent – friendly, efficient and very informative.”
Andrew and Suzanne Mounstephen, Vietnam

“We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in Jordan. It was a marvellous experience visiting so many interesting places, meeting such friendly and welcoming people and learning a little about the past and the present of this beautiful and varied country.”
Rob and Jane Aylott, Jordan

“We are now back from our holiday and would like to congratulate you on the efficiency with which you arranged all our travel and hotel bookings. When things went wrong (as occasionally happens on holidays) your guides were most helpful.”
Mr and Mrs Alan Monckton, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam

“Excellent driver, hotels were wonderful, our holiday experience was excellent. When we wanted to change our room in Kathmandu you arranged it quickly and efficiently.”
Carole and Jacqui Young, India and Nepal

“From the moment I contacted Fiona again, I knew that I was going to have a fabulous time. She always seems to make my trips holidays of a lifetime. I loved the dramatic way in which we travelled to the Napo Wildlife Centre and the MV Santa Cruz was great despite being quite a large ship. The guides were tremendous. I cannot thank you enough for all the hard work you put in.”
Charlotte Langley, Ecuador and the Galapagos

“We had the most magnificent time in fabulous Mongolia. The team were absolutely outstanding in every way — I cannot praise them enough especially as the first two nights in tents were in a blizzard at minus 10 degrees — a situation they handled supremely well. Unforgettable and marvellous in every way.”
Nina King, Mongolia

“A first class effort to get the booking arranged in the time frame. We really likedthe mixture of self-booking and Far Frontiers Travel-organised trip. Having a private guide in St. Petersburg was essential for a detailed insight, avoiding the queues and getting to outlying places — it was much better than being in a group.”
Mr and Mrs Keith Vanner, Russia and the Baltic States
