We had a wonderful experience! Everything well organized and prepared. Enthusiastic driver who was really committed to a successful tour and showed us so many places in Kerala. Beautiful country and lovely people are in our heart. Tour was brilliant and all hotels selected were comfortable and luxurious! Excellent value for money, Team airborne we will come back to you again
I would like to thank you for the lovely experinces that you have provided. Excellent choice of hotel , services and location including the special package you have provided. We will definitely visit Sri lanka again and other countries with your assistant. This trip wouldn’t have gone very well without your advice and recommendation.
The trip was awesome and well organised. Tour Guide is so friendly. Explaination about the places we visited is good and understandable. He is having some good knowledge in almost all the places in Georgia. Also we have experienced with some of the Georgian foods with him which was not in our plan and really liked that. Regarding the hotel, we are much happy with that. I would like to say special thanks for your surprise gift 🎁 that we got on second day of tour. Thank you very much for all your service. We really enjoyed our holidays with you.!!! Surely I can recommend your travel agency for the holidays. Keep it up..
We had an pleasant trip with no complaints. We are extremely happy that we chose Georgia and Airborne as our partner in making this trip happen. Firstly, we want to compliment the service and warmth of Mr Edward, our tour guide. He was caring, flexible and informative at the same time. We would strongly recommend his presence to any of our friend's tours to Georgia. Further, our stay was very comfortable at Citadines with ease of access to nearby mall, restaurants and shopping areas ; not to ignore aspects of security. Our iterinary was drawn well too, with choice of iconic places, mix of nature and architecture with optimum time for rest between travel times. Overall, we had our happy moments and made great memories during the six days. We will be more than happy to recommend Airborne and your help specifically to our circles in their travels to Georgia and beyond. Thank You once again.
