Further Afield's Testimonials

Disneyworld COVID-19

By
Cliff and Paula L., Mississauga, ON

We've had the pleasure of working with Further Afield to book a few trips for us over the years. Thier recommendatoins for vacation spots, resorts and hotels have been fantastic.  Unfortunately, our trip to Florida was cancelled due to COVID-19; however, we were comforted by the great work Sandy did to proactively saty on top of the evolving changes improsed by the federal govenment and Disney due to the virus. We took comfort in Sandy's professionalism and openness to explore options we were considering to rebook or cancel. During a very difficult time for the travel industry, Sandy, was a pleasure to deal with. She was able to provide us with a full refund which we plan to use in the near future to book through Further Afield.

Sandy to the Rescue

By
Bev and Jim S., Oakville, ON

We highly recommend Sandy and the Further Afield Travel and Tours Team. We have used their services on 3 occasions now and they have been timely and professional all the way through.

 

 

But in mid March, we really needed their help as we found ourselves in Thailand when the Canadian government mandated all Canadians to come home.  This was a very stressful situation as we were constantly monitoring what was going on in the world and at home and trying to decide if we could “shelter in place” or would indeed need to cut our trip short and scramble home.  We communicated with Sandy a couple of times whilst trying to make the decision.  A lot of this communication was over a weekend.  Her knowledge and experience to guide us through all the what ifs was very helpful and so calming.  She was so calm while we were not.  Once the decision to head home ASAP was made, Sandy grabbed the wheel and made it happen.  This, we know, took her hours to accomplish. She was professional and level headed and helped to keep us focused throughout the process.  And once it was done, what a relief.  She had gotten us a great flight plan with minimal financial impact to us. 

In addition,  prior to even leaving on our trip in mid Feb., we communicated with Sandy quite a bit trying to determine even if we should go or was the tour going ahead.  We had a lot of questions. Before a big trip like that, we should have been excited but because of the world events, we were more anxious than excited.  Sandy helped tremendously to put us in a frame of mind to enjoy the trip which we did until we had to come home.  


We will be using Further Afield travel for our travel needs in the future.  They are a gold mine of information and experience.  And they are also extremely nice folks.
