WoW!!! Wat ‘n belewenis was dit nie om saam met C’the world in Thailand te getoer het nie.
Alles was perfek! Vannaf die eerste kennismaking en vriendelike vewelkoming op die lughawe, tot die traan gevulde oë toe almal, almal vaarwel sè op die laaste dag terug huis toe. Ons harte was gevul met blydskap, want nie net het ons ‘n wonderlike tyd saam C’the world in Thailand gehad nie, maar pragtige mense ontmoet wat ons na die toer kan vriende noem en lank nog mee gaan kontak hou. C’the World se toergidse, Benno en Jacqueline het hul wonderlik van hul taak gekwyt. Altyd vol entosiasme en paraatskap, sou ‘n mens iets wou uitvind of weet oor Thailand en/of die toer. Hul het sowaar almal, op hul gemak laat voel, sodat jy net kan terug sit en jou droom vakansie kan geniet. Sonder enige bekommernisse oor enige vervoer tussen hotelle of eilande, enige spesiale reëlings of besprekings nie. 2015 se Thailand-trippie was ons 2de toer saam C’the world, en elke keer het hulle ons verbaas.

Dear C the World, Thank you for a fabulous tour which certainly exceeded our expectations. We cannot stop singing your praises to all and sundry. I am always on the lookout for a bargain and my Budget European Tour certainly was value for money. So many mind blowing attractions, still cannot decide which were our favourites. We were so impressed in the professional manner in which the tour was conducted. Jacqueline was absolutely efficient and handled the guests with patience explaining the workings of the railways a million times to everybody. Want to commend Jacqueline not only for her expertise during the tour but for her assistance prior to departure with visas and key notes. We definitely will recommend your company to our friends and family. I am looking forward to my next tour with C the World, which I hope will be soon. Kind Regards and Best Wishes!

We want to thank you and C the World for a once in a lifetime experience you and your company helped make happen for our family. Our two week trip through Europe was awesome and we are so thankful and glad that we chose to do it with you. The trip was well organised, fun-filled, yet fast paced and busy but probably the best way to see as much as possible. Thank you for being such an awesome tour leader and staying with us every step of the way as we travelled from country to country. -European tour 2014

We knew the accommodation would be budget but we were pleasantly surprised. Apart from our two rooms being slightly small the accommodation was a lot better than expected. We only missed having a kettle in our room.
