We are so happy to know that you enjoyed it and we look forward to hearing how it all goes in Jordan! You can leave us a post-holiday review on our website. All the best, the TravelLcoal team.
Obviously I haven’t been on the trip yet but so far dealing with Nutan has been a very easy experience and she is working hard to accommodate us.
Hi, Clare! Thank you for your lovely review. We are thrilled to know your experience so far has aligned with the organisation’s values. Nutan, our local expert out in India, is lovely and will make sure everything goes as planned, if not better! Share your holiday experience with us when you return home on our website, we are curious to find out what you thought of it! All the best, the TravelLocal team.
A super informative, friendly, user friendly tourist platform that really does promote local business. i found the Mexican representative and the head office so helpful, conscientious and efficient. Top marks. i highly recommend them.
Thank you for all your lovely words, Eloise. We are so glad the whole booking process was enjoyable and that you benefited from using our amazing platform. David is so good at his job that we are sure you will experience Mexico at its best! Would be wonderful to read your opinion after the holiday as well. On our website, you will be able to write a post trip review. All the best, the TravelLocal team.
From the initial enquiries, through to creating a bespoke itinerary
for us, right through to the actual tour, everything was executed perfectly by our local contact in Jordan. Khaldoun answered all of our questions very quickly and the service we received was great.
We had a fantastic holiday, seeing many of the highlights from Petra to the Dead Sea, Wadi Rum and many more amazing sights. Our guide and driver, Reyad, could not have been more informative and helpful throughout our time in Jordan, providing us with interesting background information and help throughout our stay.
Jordan is a beautiful country with friendly and welcoming people, I would recommend it to anyone and TravelLocal would be the perfect company to arrange your visit through.
Hi Elaine, thank you for this wonderful review! We're so pleased to hear that you had such a fabulous trip around Jordan thanks to our excellent local partners there. Do stay in touch for any future travels, we'd love to hear from you again! All the best, the TravelLocal team.
Extremely helpful in crafting the perfect itinerary.

From our initial enquiry, the service has been excellent, nothing too much trouble and rapid responses helped us choose Travel Local with their partner Ecole Travel. We are looking forward to a wonderful experience. Thank you all.
Hi Angela, thank you for this review! That's brilliant that the team in Costa Rica were so helpful with your trip planning. They are excellent with their prompt, detailed responses and they really care about our mutual clients. Do let us know how your trip goes - we love hear about everyone's fabulous holiday experiences!

Extremely prompt and attentive service. No problems or issues at all.
The prices are also very reasonable.
I hope the vacation goes as well as the booking process!

I hadn’t heard of this or any similar organisation but its principles and ABTA and ATOL protection appealed. I like tailor made trips just for my family group. Concluding one to Uzbekistan was simple and very quick. Impressed.
Hello, Allan! Thank you for taking your time to write us a review. We do pride ourselves for the local expertise one can get, we are so happy that you found the whole process easy. The team in Uzbekistan will make sure you do get the holiday you wished for. Let us know how it all went on our website when you return home! All the best, the TravelLocal team.
This is an interim review.
The process so far has been excellent!
I had problems with my payment in that my intention was to place a deposit to secure my booking of my intention to travel to India. The system however processed full payment. I informed several people of the error which was quickly rectified to my satisfaction.
The agent Nutan in India, has been excellent! She has kept me informed continuously and timeously. She is highly regrded.
Many thanks
Fatima Bhyat.
Hello, Fatima! Thank you so much for your review! We are glad the payment issue was sorted without too much hassle and happy to hear that you enjoyed planning your trip with us. Nutan is doing an amazing job and we are sure you will benefit from an awesome holiday but let us know what you think upon your home arrival. You will be able to do so on our website. All the best, the TravelLocal team.
Excellent service and local agents made really good choices for us

Our trip to India has been planned very carefully by Abha, she has been extremely helpful and patient with changes that we have requested along the way. Abha has a great knowledge of all areas and has been able to provide us with good advice. Abha would respond to emails quickly which has helped. We have a trip planned from the north to south of India. We are really excited and looking forward to our perfectly planned trip.

Hi, Cliff! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We are so glad to hear that you are happy with the way we deliver our services. Let us know what you thought of the holiday by writing to us on our website upon your return. Enjoy Malaysia! All the best, the TravelLocal team.
We heard of Travel Local in a newspaper/mag and liked the idea of using and paying locals for our trip to Nepal and Bhutan rather than a company solely based in the UK
We wanted to to do a trip involving places we went to 25 years ago and also Bhutan ... of which we knew very little about
The UK team booked our flight tickets and co ordinated everything perfectly with Nature trail in Nepal ....
In the past we have tended to book everything ourselves and they have made the whole thing so easy for us .we told them roughly what we wanted to do and then tweaked the itinerary several times ..with ease via emails ... and had all of our questions dealt with quickly and efficiently
Fantastic professional and very friendly .
Yes .... I am happy to recommend their service to anyone
We are off tomorrow so will report back when we return at the end of November about our stay
Thanks again
Welcome back home, Sue! We are wonderfully pleased to know that the whole pre-departure process was smooth and enjoyable. We hope that going down memory lane exceeded your expectations and that Rojesh has been as always, an amazing guide into the local culture. Let us know what your thoughts are, now that you had some time to settle back in. All the best, the TravelLocal team.
Very fast response with all details of our itinerary clearly explained. Changes we requested were handled quickly and accommodated. We now have our perfect tour booked and look forward to the same level of service when we arrive.
Great service for our custom tour to Sri Lanka
Thank you for your review, Richard! We are delighted to know that you received the desired customized holiday and that your requirements were promptly answered. We are sure Usiru will do an amazing job accommodating you further, at the destination. Have an amazing time and do keep us updated! All the best, the TravelLocal team.
We just booked a 13 day private tour for Sri Lanka. We had reached out to 5 different travel agencies and Travellocal offered the best customer service and the best tailored package tour.
They made great recommendations based on our needs. They are very responsive and answered all your questions. It has been a great experience so far and we are looking forward to our trip!
Hello, Laeticia! We are pleased that you agree with us that planning with local knowledge does make a difference and that you received great support! We know Shernela out in Sri Lanka will further take care of you and Jason. Enjoy the holiday coming up soon and let us know how it all went when you return back home! We have lots of post trip reviews on our website, if you are interested. All the best, the TravelLocal team.
After reading about, I decided to contact them about a trip to S Africa. My questions were dealt with very efficiently by them The website was easy to use and messages between ourselves and the company in S Africa were exchanged easily. The itinerary, prices, messages and other details are clear to see.
