Feedback from our customers
Hi Narelle, Firstly, thank you, and Nationwide travel for organizing a wonderful trip to Dubai for us. Your choice of accommodation was superb, at the Palace Hotel. They upgraded us in to a suite, that a Sheik would be impressed with. The tours where fantastic. My pick was the 4 wheel drive desert tour & Carolyn’s the high tea at the Burj Al Arab, followed by cocktails in the tallest building in the world ‘Burj Khalifa’ My only complaint was locating us next to the biggest shopping centre in the world. Carolyn had me worried, after only 20 minutes she had purchased 2 pairs of shoes, and a Versace handbag. Seriously, we appreciate the effort you put into making this, not only a marvellous holiday, but a life time of incredible memories. Thanks again, Narelle. Kind Regards, Geoff Pascoe Director Pascoe Jewellers Pty Ltd

Hi Gladys, We have just returned from Darwin to cold Melbourne and would like to thank you for your effort in detailing a wonderful trip for us. Everything ran smoothly, and all the hotels were of a very good standard. The trips with AAT Kings were well organised and drivers and tour guides well informed. We enjoyed them very much. The east Alligator River Cruise was probably our favourite as the indigenous people shared their stories and sense of humour with us. Our experience on the Ghan was great and everything ran like clockwork. The weather was fabulous 21 to 24 C in Alice Springs and Darwin was 28 to 32 C without the high Humidity that we expected. Some Ghan travellers found that they were not booked into Hotels and had to get back to their Travel agents, but our trip went without a hitch, so thank you again. With kind regards, John & Pat Hughes
My husband and I wanted to take a break from work to celebrate our 60th birthday.. We finally decided on Hawaii with only a couple of weeks before we wanted to leave. I started a search on the internet, but after wasting a couple of days to find most everywhere booked out or having to pay huge $$$, I decided to call Nationwide Travel. After a few emails Narelle had us on flights on the date I wanted ,USA entry Visa, booked the best hotels at a cheaper rate, and flights Honolulu to Maui all connecting to the Jewellery Fair in Sydney before flying home. All at a much better rates than I could find on the internet. With a business to run and my time being so precious Narelle saved me so much time and $$$. To top it all off a Birthday surprise with chocolate coated strawberries and champagne arrived while we were on the balcony of the Sheraton watching the sunset…All compliments of Nationwide Travel organised by Narelle.. What an Awesome Business break and Birthday! Thank you Narelle and Nationwide Travel Regards Demi Ridge Jewellers Dear Gladys, I have to take my hat off to you for being one of the most professional organizers we have dealt with & we all have a great deal of respect for you . I shall pass on your good tidings to the team & we are looking forward to the next big one with you . Thank you again.
