"Happy new year! We have now got over the excitement of our Lapland trip, Christmas and New Year's Eve and I wanted to write to thank you for your assistance, guidance and patience in booking our amazing holiday. From the moment we checked in, to landing at Ivalo, then arriving at the hotel and through every activity we had fantastic service and all of our expectations were exceeded. We luckily had snow falling throughout our trip and this really created a magical winter wonderland. Could you either forward my email onto your contact with Santa's Lapland or advise who I can contact directly? I am all to aware that customers are usually quite quick to complain when they are unhappy but less forthcoming to praise and pass on positive feedback. Many thanks again, and I wish you all at Rediscover a great 2019.  "

"We received expert and friendly advice from Dawn, who took personal charge of our booking and who was on the phone as soon as bookings opened to secure our trip. She was delightful, and couldn't have been more helpful; I wouldn't hesitate to put future bookings into her hands."

"The whole Santa experience was very well run and the airline, Thomson, was first class. I didn't expect a very good cooked breakfast nor did I expect an evening meal on the return journey. The aircrew went beyond what was required and I think it would be true to say they made the whole experience truly memorable for the young children, and some not so young kids ! Unfortunately for our family group one of the 5 year olds was extremely ill the night prior to departure and Dad and he had to miss the whole experience but, hey, that's life. I, perhaps my fault, hadn't realised that once on site the trip was all inclusive, apart from the gift shop but we soon overcame our inhibitions and used the activities to the full. All in all a great day and I would be pleased if you could pass on a special thanks to the aircraft crew."

"Absolutely fantastic experience and trip from booking, Dawn was very helpful and clearly knowledgeable about the trip and the area. Answering questions quickly and clearly. The resort and hotel was brilliant - the Santa's Lapland reps were brilliant with the children at all times and very helpful. Such a great trip and would highly recommend both your company and the trip to others as a 'never to be forgotten' experience."
