This is the second time I've used EV and they did not disappoint! Back in 2012 they organised my whole trip - hotels/drivers/flights/visas/guides etc. This time I used Air bnb for some of my trip and Annie helped me connect the dots. Annie was so helpful and understanding of my needs, she's very patient! She really will help you create the trip you really want, her inside knowledge is absolutely golden and she was always on hand if I had any problems. She provided a really efficient safe and trust worthy service. All the services Annie recommended were highly professional and we were shielded from a lot of stress and harassment that foreigners can sometimes experience. We had a great trip and plan to returning next year. Hopefully Annie can help us organise that!READ MORE

Lucy at Exotic Voyages put together an amazing, hassle-free vacation for my wife and me. We went to Bangkok for two days, then to Cambodia to visit Angkor Wat for a day, then back to Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand for three days. My wife's birthday was on the second day we were in Thailand. I called Lucy to request we stop at a bakery to get a birthday cake during a food tour we had planned. She had already arranged for a birthday cake with singing at one of our stops, because she said she noticed in our documents that it was my wife's birthday and she wanted to surprise us! The airports were a little confusing, but Lucy provided guides to meet us at every stop so we wouldn't have any problems. They even expedited our visas in Cambodia. It was everything we could have asked for and was definitely a trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend Exotic Voyages and Lucy.READ MORE
