“Unprofessional or just rude?”

Written on: 08/12/2018 by Kathrynn24 (1 review written)

Seemed enthusiastic to organise a holiday but never returned phone calls , despite promises to, quite bewildering to be ignored by a supposedly legitimate travel company. Still no word from them 3 weeks after initial phone call! Went to Kuoni- had trip organised in 3 days, always contactable, so different!… Read Full Review

“Great until they make a mistake.”

Written on: 09/07/2013

Booking a honeymoon through these guys seemed great until they spelt the name of my partner incorrectly and we had to pay to rectify as it was our fault for not noticing the error. It's a shame as we know we called about it, bit can't remember the exact data or time so cant prove it. Given the overall cost of the honeymoon and wedding the cost to change the name was minimal and made no real difference cost wise, however the way we were treated and blamed for the issue left a very bad taste… Read Full Review

“Holiday fine, but totally useless in an emergency”

Written on: 17/11/2011 by cteague1 (1 review written)

We had a super holiday in Tahiti through Turquoise Holidays in April of 2010 with stays in Papeette, Moorea and Bora Bora. Sadly , this was where it ended. We were then stuck in Los Angeles for 6 nights on the way back to the UK due to the Icelandic volcano. Turquoise Holidays lifted one finger for us: they got a less than competent local agent to book one night in a rundown but expensive hotel in Venice Beach for 150 USD per night which I had to pay for. We then spent 5 more nights in the… Read Full Review

Jontyhiggs's Response to cteague1's Review

Written on: 23/11/2011

Hi Cameron,
I just wanted to respond to your comment above, first of all to say sorry again that you got stuck in the ash cloud situation, and had such a poor end to your trip. I fully understand how frustrating it must have been - but I just wanted to highlight that the days surrounding the Icelandic ash cloud created huge logistical problems for air travel worldwide, it was an unprecedented event, and I think all travel providers emergency procedures were similarly stretched. To be fair we were in very frequent contact with Air NZ at our end & did call and text you a number of times with updates. I think all concerned did do their best to get you home as quickly as possible, but of course I'm really sorry that we weren't able to get you back sooner. Hotels in Los Angeles were massively overbooked, so apologies also that you didn't like the one you ended up in, but it was just impossible to find a better alternative, which we did try to do. Thanks again for booking the trip with us in the first place, and if you do give us another try for a future trip we will do our utmost to pull out all the stops for you. Best Regards - Jonty Higgs, Sales Manager, The Turquoise Holiday Company

“Wonderful Holiday ”

Written on: 26/09/2011

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Australia. We wanted a trip that would take in lots of different activities and allow us to spend a bit of time in Sydney and also some time in the bush. The guys at Turquoise weren't phased by this request at all and were able to make some brilliant suggestions on where we should go, what we should do and where we should stay! I would certainly recommend Turquoise to anyone, particularly if you are looking to take a holiday with a bit of a… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2011

We had the most amazing honeymoon at Rasananda! It is amazing - especially in one of the rooms on the beach. Just loved it!! Anyway Turquoise were great from beginning to end - really helpful. We wouldn't have even known about Rasananda if it hadn't been for them recommending it, base don our budget and the time of year. Lara, who we dealt with, had been there and really sold it to us. She also told us about the amazing honeymoon package Turquoise had arranged with the hotel- which was perfect… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/04/2011

My girlfriend and I had been obsessing over a trip to Vietnam for some time after being inspired by countless cooking programmes featuring the delights of street eating in Hanoi, as well as reading many rousing articles on the amazing cultural experiences that people have had since visiting the beautiful country.
I contacted Turquoise after hearing many good things in the press and from close friends, although it was some special offers that were shown in the Times that finally pushed me to… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/04/2011

After the horrible weather that we witnessed last winter, my husband and I decided that we deserved a holiday. We have already been to Thailand, New Zealand, South America and Italy so we decided on Tahiti. We knew that we wanted a tropical location, with beautiful surroundings, plenty to do along with time to sit back and relax. I saw that a few of my trustworthy friends were fans of Turquoise Holidays on Facebook so I contacted them after many recommendations. We got in contact with Johanna… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/04/2011

I travelled to tahiti on my honeymoon and booked through turquoise. My husband and I absolutely loved our time at the four seasons bora bora. It was such a luxurious place that we felt we could completely relax. Perfect after our wedding. The flight was a bit long but the destination more than made up for it with beautiful warm weather and amazing oceans. Thanks ever so much to the lovely Sarah for recommending it!… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/04/2011

We have just returned from New Zealans saying in some beautiful beach houses in the North and South Island's we loved it all. Petra at Turquoise was charming and really knew her stuff she is a Kiwi living in the UK so you can't get better advice than that.
The premium economy flights were a good option and although we were not sure abour LA. The whole trip was fantastic and we are busy going through the beautiful brochure planning our next trip to Australia or South Africa well done Turquoise… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/03/2011 by Rubyjane (1 review written)

My partner and I both have very hectic jobs so our idea of a dream holiday is escaping from all realities and relaxing in the sun on a secluded island. We wanted to take out all of the hassle that goes with researching potential holiday destinations and having travelled with Turquoise previously we had no hesitation in asking for their help once again. We described what we wanted to get out of a ten night break and they immediately recommended Tahiti and Her Islands.

We didn't want… Read Full Review

We booked our honeymoon to the Maldives with Turquoise in December and had a great time. Cocoa island was sooo nice and Catherine recommended an amazing room and booked us a number of extras from our gift list, which our guests praised to no end. The como shambala retreat was also incredible and made us feel great inside and out. Amazing honeymoon overall, would recommend 100%… Read Full Review

I travelled to Australia for a family holiday with turquoise late last year and it was great. Everything planned perfectly, hotels very accommodating for my kids, and so much to do once we got there. Even the flights were good, which was a shock! Highly recommend these guys… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2011 by Alex Blunt (1 review written)

Just got back from an outstanding holiday booked through Turquoise. We covered a tour of South East Asia, notably Vietnam and Malaysia and the whole trip really was a once in a lifetime experience. The food in Vietnam was incredible and the hotels we booked into were really unique. It was luxurious but not over the top given the relative poverty that surrounded some of the areas we visited.

Top marks to the team for their recommendations on what to do while out there and for planning… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2011

After seeing Turquoise as a featured tour operator on the 101holidays website I browsed over their Indian Ocean selection after requesting a brochure from them. I immediately fell in love with the Seychelles and in particular the banyan tree and the Maia hotels. I contacted them via the website enquiry form and I was really impressed with the level of detail they gave back in the quote / itinerary. It covered exactly what we wanted but with a load of other exciting ideas thrown in, things we… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/03/2011

Great to see Turquoise getting some of the recognition they deserve on review centre. One of the best travel companies I've dealt with, I know the secret is getting out now and they are becoming more and more popular but from the first time I arranged a holiday with them to my most recent experience there has always been the personal touch that makes so much difference. Be speaking to you all again soon Turquoise!… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/03/2011

Thanks ever so much Turquoise, my family and I had a fabulous time in New Zealand. It seemed quite daunting at first as although we have travelled extensively in Europe this was our first long haul holiday together with all four of us.
Needless to say my mind was put at ease, thanks to Petra for all the advice and reassurance, it just goes to show that long distance travelling with a family can work. Family friendly hotels were arranged for us with connecting rooms, I thought that we might… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/03/2011 by george1293 (1 review written)

I booked a holiday with Turquoise for my and my wife's 10 year anniversary after a few enquiries with different tour operators - Kuoni and Sovereign are the two I remember. Turquoise's itinerary fit what we wanted the closest, so we chose to go with them to Malaysia. What a great holiday we had, too. We had a tour through the country, visiting a few small villages, a couple of days in Kuala Lumpur, and then a week on the beach at Tanjong Jara. It was incredible - every need we had was catered… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/03/2011



I took my last holiday with Turquoise Holidays and overall it was excellent.. We visited the Maldives and had a really relaxing time there and followed some really good advice from Polly who we booked through. My only complaint with the whole holiday was the flight was not great as really had not appreciated how long it was going to be sat near a screaming child and really wish I had been pushed an upgrade option a bit more when I booked it.

Apart from the that the hotels were beautiful… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2011

My husband and I decided we wanted to venture away from our usual annual holidays to either Spain or Portugal and go somewhere really special for our 25th wedding anniversary. After doing some research we thought that the Caribbean would be a good choice for us and that Barbados tends to be a popular choice for first time visitors to the Caribbean, combining luxury with familiarity. Normally we tend to book our own flights and then look for own accommodation in the areas we like and know so… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2011

My husband and I had wanted to return to Thailand for a while and decided that this time, we wanted to see the luxury side of Thailand. I had already done the backpacking thing and lived with Hill tribes so I thought it was time we deserved a much more relaxing holiday. I discovered Turquoise Holidays on the internet and decided to enquire about Rasananda and Zeavola so we could stay at two hotels on our holiday. Turquoise managed to put together an entirely bespoke itinerary for us which… Read Full Review
