Excellent from start to finish
I couldn't recommend Wayfairer Travel any higher, they were outstanding. I would definitely put that down to the people I interacted with. I had placed enquiries with a number of travel agencies (through the Responsible Travel portal) on a Sunday night and Cat was immediately on the ball, contacting me on Monday morning. We spent 45 mins on the phone and she asked so many detailed questions. So when it came to putting our varied itinerary together she was spot on!
She was incredibly engaging, professional, responsive and a pleasure to work with.
(Other travel agents responded days later and I was very happy to tell them they had missed the boat!)
Once our trip was booked we were then in touch with Carmen who was also great.
I felt that they were available at any time if i had any issues, questions, queries and really had confidence in their support.
Carmen checked in with us a couple of days into our trip and also after the trip where I was very happy to feed back on the different experiences we had.
I would highly recommend Wayfairer to anybody!
They deftly juggled complicated logistics.
They put together a multistop Zambia pleasure trip for me (solo traveler). I presented them with my interests and after some communication, they put together a plan. Their knowledge of the area and operators was very helpful. When, as they do, issues came up they were flexible in modifying my agenda (e.g. one of my extensions was canceled due to river water levels). I feel that their expertise made my experience much more enjoyable as I could focus on my trip and not the logistics.
Pro: professional, approachable, non-judgemental, flexible
Con: tends to gravitate to the more expensive experiences (which you can "tune" down), some difficulty reaching them during a weekend issue (consider international mobile phone rather than wifi based communications)
Fantastic safari experience!
Time on our safari was fantastic! We loved that Wayfairer set us up with Basecamp Wilderness camp. Their mission, involvement in conservation efforts, and investment in the Masai people was wonderful to hear about and we felt very glad to support their company. 4 days, 3 nights was a great amount of time to be on safari. We saw so many incredible animals - including 16 lions, a jaguar, and 6 cheetah! There was a little bit of confusion about when we were leaving from the staff, but we got it all cleared away.
Excellent and the organizations were amazing. The food was wonderful and there were many activities available.
Overall, they completely delivered!
From the beginning engagement I was completely won over by Thea, she was fantastic at painting the perfect honeymoon meeting our needs and budget.
I must be completely honest and there was a slightly bumpy middle, but this was mostly due to flights (out of their control) and then one or two other things. However the understanding and extra effort that went in did not go unnoticed.
We then had completely open minds going on the honeymoon as with the slight bumps, we weren't sure, however we needn't have worried. IT WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD! The recommendations that Thea were made were not only perfect, but they were the best of the best. Safari at Ol Seki was amazing and we had the most magical time. We then went on to Zuri Zanzibar, just the most amazing hotel I have ever seen and stood out amongst all the others on the same beach. With what had happened in the journey, it seems Wayfairer had gone out of their way to make sure everyone knew it was our honeymoon and we got treated like royalty the entire trip. I was truly blown away and now completely gutted to be home. Thank you and we will be using again!
