Great Tanzanian Adventure
Wayfairer Travel set up a wonderful trip for me to sister lodges Lake Manze and Madonya Old River on the southern circuit and flights with Coastal Aviation. From booking to the last flight back to Dar Es Salaam every minute was first class. Pre-trip service by Wayfairer was super and both lodges, game drives and flights exceeded my every expectation. Trip of a lifetime!!
We had an amazing trip to Southern Africa. The itinerary we had included Victoria Falls (the Zimbabwean side), a day trip to Chobe, a visit to Great Zimbabwe and Cape Town. Wayfairer Travel was amazing at booking our travel, ensuring that we had the best tour guides and any issues we faced were resolved immediately. They really surpassed our expectations.
Fantastic holiday, excellent service from Wayfairer
I used Wayfairer to book a 2 week self-drive holiday in Namibia. We are UK citizens living in South Africa currently and when I started looking at accommodation and travel options for Namibia realised fairly quickly that, as we wanted to visit a number of destinations (8 over 2 weeks), it would be better to use an agent, so I contacted a number of tours companies via the Safari Bookings website. Most companies responded with generic offerings. Wayfairer were the only company that contacted me to ask questions about the type of holiday and experience we were looking for and after some initial email contact, arranged for one of their agents to call me so we could discuss further. We explored some options and in a fairly short time they had come back to me with a truly tailor-made itinerary, based on our personal preferences. Although they are a UK-based firm, they use a local agent in Namibia (ATI) who were also excellent.
We kept in regular contact from booking to the trip itself and they assisted with lots of queries and additional services like restaurant bookings.
The trip itself was a fantastic experience. We were provided with everything we needed on arrival, from airport collection, to having our hire vehicle delivered to our B&B, a personalised map and itinerary and helpful extras like a cooler box and ice-packs for our long road trips and a pre-paid cell phone, programmed with the numbers of all the places we were staying.
All of the accommodation was superb and the whole trip was smooth sailing. Namibia is truly an amazing country and I wouldn't hesitate to use Wayfairer again.
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)
