"Thank you so much much for everything. We really appreciate all the help Andy and yourself have given us to make it a birthday to remember...and all at such short notice! I promise next time will be a little less last minute! All the very best"

"David and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you both for organising the most fantastic birthday holiday for us. Everything was so effortless and perfectly arranged. We hope it will be a lot sooner than 9 years to be in touch again for our next trip (and it hopefully won't be so last minute too!). Very best wishes and thanks"
