Dear Mr &Mrs Wahie
Just a short note from the Mathijssen and Koreneef family. We have arrived safely in Sri Lanka. We are so happy with our stay in Hotel Cape Weligama. This is the most amazing place I couldn't have dreamed up. A true gem in a country that looks very promising
Many thanks and best wishes
Heleen

Dear Raj,

Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed our travels in Sri 
Lanka and the Maldives which you organised for us. Sri Lanka was a wonderful experience helped by our personal driver Viraj. The hotels were beautiful, and as we were on our honeymoon, organised special treats for us. The country itself was really interesting with the highlight of seeing and feeding the baby elephants in captivity and also seeing them and other animals in the wild on our safari. The Maldives were just breathtaking in their beauty and offered a total tranquil and restful time after the hectic schedule in Sri Lanka.
Thank you so much for your help in making our honeymoon so special. 
We have recommended you and your company to all our friends and relatives.
Best regards
Derek and Dorothy Thrippleton

Dear Mr Wahie, I am writing to thank you for our holiday. Apologies that I have not e-mailed you earlier with feedback. Me and my wife had a holiday in India and Nepal in February this year that you arranged. Your special offers e-mail just reminded me that I should write. The vacation was really excellent thank you. The travel arrangements were exactly on time for the whole holiday and our driver in India was very good. The hotels were really good although for India the food in the hotels was a little more pricey as one would expect. Some of the meals we had out of the hotels were excellent and the driver had some recommendations. One of the few items for improvement would be to consider flying from Katmandu to Pohkara in Nepal as the road has a lot of road works on it and even the finished sections are fairly rough. So each way was a complete day and verytiring. Thanks again Ken

Feedback from our client who recently visited India 

Dear Rajiv.

We are now back from our holiday in the north west of India and what can I say, apart from Tailormade Journeys Ltd did it again! It is the third time we have visited India through your company and the third time that we have had the most wonderful holiday experience. Your organisation of the itinerary went like clockwork, which is always so reassuring in a vast and overwhelming country like India. The hotels were all good, particularly the family run Ranjit’s Savasa in Amritsar where we were treated like friends, the very upmarket Club Mahindra in Manali and the Radisson in Shimla. Our driver, Rana, was particularly efficient (he had to be to deal with the Indian traffic!) and all of our tour guides were of a similarly high standard.

Thank you again for making our holiday so memorable and we will continue to recommend your company to anyone who is thinking of visiting fantastic India.

Best regards,

Peter Mills and Nigel Barker

Culture Cruise and Beach Holiday in Myanmar
http://www.tailormadeholidays4u.com/tailormadeholidays4u/TD-312-Myanmar-River-Cruise.aspx

Day 1 Arrive Yangon

Upon arrival in Yangon Airport you are met and transferred to your pre booked Hotel 

Yangon lies in the fertile delta of southern Myanmar, on the wide Yangon River. The city is filled with tree-shaded boulevards, with shimmering stupas appearing to float above the treetops. The city became the capital only in 1885, when the British completed the conquest of Upper Myanmar and Mandalay's brief period as capital of the last Burmese kingdom ended. Yangon remains the de-facto capital of Myanmar despite the development of the new administrative capital in the centre of the country.  

Overnight Stay at the Hotel in Yangon




Day 2 Yangon

After breakfast you will be collected for your full day tour of Yangon.

Start the day at the Sule Pagoda, a gleaming octagonal pagoda that stands squarely at the centre-point of the city. Afterwards, visit the National Museum to gain an insight into Myanmar’s rich history and diverse cultures. See the eight metre high Sihasana Lion Throne, used by the last Burmese king, and other fascinating artefacts from Burmese history and culture. Enjoy a break at Bogyoke (Scott’s) Market, a pleasant covered market containing crafts from all corners of Myanmar, gems, fabrics and more. (The market is closed on Mondays and public holidays).  In the afternoon, visit some of the better-known pagodas, including Botataung Pagoda, named after the 1000 military leaders who escorted relics of the Buddha from India over 2000 years ago. Visit Chaukhtatgyi Pagoda, a reclining Buddha almost as large as the enormous figure in Bago. It's housed in a large metal-roofed shed on Shwegondaing Lan, just a short distance north-east beyond the Shwedagon Paya. Finally, continue to the highlight of any visit to Yangon, the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda, one of the greatest religious monuments in Asia. Towering over the city, this pagoda is the most sacred spot in the country, built to house eight hair relics of the Buddha. The Shwedagon Pagoda and surrounding shrines are at their most beautiful during the sunset hour, as the golden stupa reflects the changing colours of twilight.
