K . Hansen - Group of 18 tourists - Denmark

Thank you very much for a lovely trip and all your very good work with the arrangement.It has been a pleasure communicating with you from the start. To always receive the information we have asked for and also very quick. The planning about seeing the Wilderbeast Migration crossing the Mara River has been very good and we have seen everything. Thanks for the wine in Naivasha.We finally reached Copenhagen (had a lot of delay and rebooking in Brussels).

Hi Josephine,
a few days off - time for the feedback! When I decided to book via Internet I had my doubts whether all will work out. In retrospect I have to say that there was absolutely no reason to worry. The whole organisation of the journey was very well managed, all meeting points worked out, everybody was there in time. We always had the impression that somebody was working on the next thing to happen - we liked that !

 
S Lambert - Australia - 2012
Hi Rachel , THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!! I was so fortunate to book through you for my safaris to Samburu and Masai mara on my recent trip to Kenya. My driver to Samburu, Jessie, was amazing, we drove from Nairobi so were together in the vehicle for most of the day and he was really great - he had knowledge of every area we went through and was very caring. I thoroughly enjoyed going out on game drives and saw lots of animals, as well as understanding more of the landscape.
 
Gerrit . M - Germany - February 2011

Hi Ashmira. I am now back in our cold country Germany. The tour was very good and all the participants are very happy. Thankyou very much for your organisation and the nice present !!!!

Best Regards,

Mrs K Lynn - USA - 2010
Thankyou for following up with us on our safari - I must say it was a fabulous trip, in every way surpassing my already high expectations. As you know, travelling to Africa has been a dream of mine and I desparately wanted it all to go well which is why I choose your company, but I was still feeling nervous that something might not go as per plan, after all we would be on a long 2 week safari afterall..but barring very minor issues, it was a beautiful experience I will cherish the rest of my life. Thanks for all the planning and arrangements , and also pass my best to our driver Paul who took such good care of us throughout the trip.

And the minor issues ?? Well, just the time it took to get to some of the parks because of the poor state of the roads, so next time I'd probably take a flight to some of the parks and have Paul receive us there..and I wasnt too happy with the Hilton hotel especially compared to the Holiday Inn at the same price [almost] but this was just for the night anyway and these are like I said minor issues. I must say the lodges and all the other accommodation however was marvelous ! Especially loved the Larsens Camp in Samburu at the end of our safari.
Thanks again for all the work Mary - we'll be back to Kenya for sure !
Kallol Banerjee - Calcutta, India - December 2009
Dear Ashmira, Thanks for your email. Our trip was superb...magical...much beyond what I really expected ! It would not have been so without the contribution of all of you -- Mary, you and Sanjay. Your efforts in making our trip a "once in a lifetime" kind of experience went beyond the call of duty. Truly, we could not have asked for more. Please also thank Peter [ driver guide] on our behalf and wish him and his family a wonderful 2009 !
 
Nick Mitchley - UK - 2009
Just to let you know that our safari was very nice. Our driver guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The journey to the Mara was somewhat unplesant due to the state of the roads ! Hopefully they will improve. I will contact Shoor again should we do another trip.
Mr and Mrs Woodsford - UK - October 2008
Just to repeat the big Thank You that we left with your manager on our last day in Kenya. All the safari arrangements went very well and we had a most memorable time.
Mr P Davis - USA - August 2008
Ashmira, I just wanted to drop a line to express all our thanks for the smooth and efficient way you organised our trip. The slight hiccup when the Air Kenya flight from Mara was delayed was dealt with very efficiently and with minimum fuss. With hindsight we should have tried to get out of the airport on the final day between the transfer from Mombasa and the flight out which was not until midnight. Fortunately we had access to the lounge so it was ok. Say our thanks to Peter as well !
Miss C . Stewart - USA - January 2008
We had an incredible experience on safari. My uncle who has been on numerous safaris thorughout Africa said it was the best lion viewing he had ever seen. We were very lucky ! We had a tremendous time with the Mara Simba lodge and the best part of our safari was Paul our driver. He was very easy to be around and very knowledgeable. We have already recommended your company to some of my family who may be travelling to Kenya in the fall - thanks again !
Peter Wilcock - UK - Nov 07
Planning went well. The safari was great and everything worked out well, even with a sick vehicle on one day, which Peter sorted out without any inconvenience - it was part of the adventure. All lodges were good. The balloon ride was magical. Mombassa Serena Beach was an excellent hotel with service higher than anywhere I have seen in the world. Everyone talked to you and welcomed you. Nairobi was unfortunately the anti climax - our suggestion to do two days here, but would have preferred an extra two days in Mombassa. Never mind. Overall and excellent and memorable trip - thoroughly recommend your assistance and Peter's to make it a memorable trip.Will definitely talk to you about arranging another trip - perhaps Serengeti and Mombassa in about two years time.

Thanks. Peter Wilcock
Paolo Montagna - Spain - Oct 07

The safari tour was great, we really enjoyed the Masai Mara and especially the company of Harrison. He is a perfect guide with great knowledge of the places we visited and the animal behaviours. We will definitely suggest the Shoor Travel agency to our friends.

Best wishes, Paolo

Amey Atre - Dubai - Oct 07

It will be very difficult to express in words but I can just say the trip has been fantastic! I am very pleased with the whole trip organization and especially Putta, he is very sharp, skilled, excellent driver and a good human being!Special thanks to you and your team, Only one suggestion – Amoboseli Sopa lodge was bit far away from the park! But rest was just fantastic.

Cheers, Amey

James Burns - UK - Sep 07
Just returned from my trip. I was going to email you anyway to say I had a great time. The Serena Lodge was excellent and in a great location. Managed to see a big river crossing but in spite of extra drives didn't really much of the cats which was a bit disappointing.
Anyway thanks for all your help and if I am going that way again I will contact you.
James.
Huerta, Edward - U.S.A - Aug 07

Chris and I enjoyed our safari.  We had a great experience and will pass
on a lot of positive feedback to future customers. The only negative piece of feedback would be the method in which we
processed our credit cards.  One of us had our credit card compromised and was used fraudulently

Regards,
Eddie Huerta

Masha Brown - U.S.A - July 07
the Safari was fantastic, and Joseph is absolutely wonderful. we are very happy and had a great time.
Eric Raleigh - UK - 2007

I would like to thank everyone at Shoor for a wonderful safari.  My brother and I had a fantastic time.  Harry was a great driver--very knowledgable, very friendly, always on time.  We couldn't have asked for a better driver.
Thanks again.

Eric

Brock J. Tonn - U.S.A - 2007

Thanks so much for your email.  Thank you as well, for taking our call from the Wilson airport.  Without seeing anyone, of course, I became worried we would miss our connecting flight.  But your driver was there after we spoke, and quickly shuttled us to the international airport.  It was nice to know you were available!

As well--the short safari was amazing.  The camps selected were definitely worth the money we paid.  I know that we had a bunch of trouble confirming Tortilis for only one night, and that led to many emails from me to Kristeen (I am sure she is happy she is done with us).  But it was worth it. I will definitely use Shoor again if we come to Kenya, which I hope will be soon.

Thank you again, Ashmira.
Brock

Jayesh and Amita Patel - U.S.A - 2007

Sorry it took us a while to reply, but we were getting used to our jet lag and also preparing one of our daughters' for college. As per our trip to Kenya with Shoor--it was one of our best experiences. You organised our trip very well--our accomodations were very nice and the itenary was great. Best of all, Peter was a great driver and guide. We got a lot of information/knowledge from Peter. Our daughters came for the first time to Kenya and they had such a wonderful time that they are planning on coming again in the future. We would definitely be recommeding Shoor to anyone who wants to visit Kenya.

Suggestion: It would have been less stressful if we had received the copies of the vouchers for the hotels indicating that we were safely booked. Having said that, once we met Peter at the airport, we knew everything will be fine. (It was the worry of the unknown). You are welcome to give our e-mail address for references. Please thank Sanjay for us too

Regards,Jayesh and Amita

Detweiler, James - U.S.A - Aug 07
From the Group:

The Shoor Travel Safari experience is one I will remember for a long time to come.  The hotel ccommodations were top-notch, the people were extremely polite and helpful and the safari itself was incredible. Thank you so much for setting up such a great adventure for my friends
and I.  It was well worth it!!!


Only suggestion I would have is to have a guide-book of some sort that you can hand out to us that would explain each location we are going to and the parks we'll be visiting.  That's a great souvenir to take back and a great way to remember the names of all the places we visited.

T
hank you again for a phenomenal experience. I will recommend your
company to all my friends and family!!!


Regards,
James

Nicola Wilson - UK - July 2006

Thank you, yes we have all returned home safely.

I was going to email to say how impressed I was with Shoor Travel. Everything was so smooth, from the airport pick up to the whole safari. We were all so impressed with Harrison our guide. He was such a great person and really made our trip memorable.

Could you please pass our thanks onto Harrison. He really made the trip brilliant!!!! I will definately recommend the company to others. My Mum & Dad also thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thanks so much.
