We had a fantastic time in Sicily. Thank you for your suggestion - so much more than we expected, lots of interesting places to visit and the hotels were excellent.


We felt as though we were away for ever and had not 1 but 3 holidays!

The Kingston family

The list of superlatives about the holiday is endless...You can be assured that we will be in contact with Ultimate Destinations in the near future to discuss our next “tailor made” requirements.

Tony and Barbara

We had a terrific time. Everything worked like clockwork; your organisation was wonderful.
Thank you for everything you did to make this holiday trouble free. We'll be back to see you for our next holiday!


Debbie - thanks for arranging our return boarding passes. Great service.


Our holiday in the USA was "awesome" as they say. All the hotels you provided were excellent. Thank you for helping us make it such a great experience...and for the fantastic memories.

Mr and Mrs H

We were planning a special trip to the Maldives and we chose Diamonds Thudufushi in the South Ari Atoll. Andy helped make all the arrangements including sourcing seats on direct BA flights at a competitive price. The holiday was wonderful and very relaxing. Would definitely recommend this beautiful island.

Liz Patel

Thank you for booking such a great holiday - we had the best time we didn't want to come home! Orlando was absolutely fantastic, we loved it there - and we really liked Tampa too shopping there was great!! Was honestly the best holiday we've had! I'll have to start thinking soon where's next!


Thank you for organising our ANZCRO trip, it was fantastic. All the connections and hotels were spot on. Will recommend you to anyone thinking of doing any long haul trips.


Thank you for organising our trip to the States. We had a fantastic time everywhere we went. Hotels were well chosen and were very clean and comfortable with just the right amount of luxury for two night stays. Transport links all worked smoothly and having Cape Cod as our final stay was perfect with wonderful accommodation and beautiful beaches. Many thanks for your guidance!


We had the most fabulous time imaginable on our trip to India and would certainly go back.... we were lucky to come to you to arrange this trip.

The Jopling Family

I just wanted to thank you for your excellent service arranging our recent trip to Cyprus, no problems with the car park or flight. Also thanks for your prompt assistance with our queries while we were there. If you keep 'holding our hands' like this you'll never get rid of us!


Thanks for your advice on the Ghazala Gardens in Sharm El Sheik which proved to be a great place to stay and in a prime location. We had a really fantastic time and everything ran very smoothly, flights on time, transfers great, hotel very good.

The Deakin Family

I cannot recommend Buffalo Tours highly enough. Many thanks, Andy, as ever, for organising our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. It was certainly an adventure and a half!

Ralph and Alison

Thank you for arranging our trip to Athens. Hotel Hemes in Athens was a short walk away from everything we needed.


We had a great time in Kefalonia. The whole trip was very smooth and well organised by Ionian, and we would definitely use them again if going to that part of the world. We were also lucky with the weather, and even the hire car, as it appeared most of those who booked ahead of us had taken all the small cars leaving us with something slightly roomier and more powerful.


Living in Chorleywood, it gave us peace of mind to be able to speak directly to someone knowledgeable and book with a local Agent.
