Hi Thought I’d let you know you guys set the bar way too high and now I’m struggling. Die eerste toer wat ek ooit gedoen het was deur julle maatskappy. My fout was om aan te neem die diens wat ek by julle ontvang het sal ek by ander toermaatskappye ook kry. Ek is nou al ‘n geruime tyd besig om planne te maak om weer op ‘n toer te gaan einde van die jaar – maar dis nie dieselfde nie. Ek wil dankie se vir die diens wat ek laas jaar ontvang het. Dis amper ‘n geval van “you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone?” haha. C the world REALLY took care of everything!! -Christmas 2014

A great big THANK YOU for the most awesome Italian Adventure, the trip was so much more than I ever expected and that was all thanks to you and C the World. There were only highs during our trip. Your youth belies your organisational skills and knowledge, you put together the perfect package (sights, guides, hotels and especially cost) and I am indeed lucky to have had such a good experience of Italy with you and our motley crew, fun indeed.

Baie dankie vir n baie lekker tyd wat Ek en Marian so pas saam met C the world in Europa gehad het. Ons het elke land wat ons besoek het baie geniet. Daar was so baie goeie tye met so baie hoogte punte gewees. Elke dag het iets besonders positief opgelewer. Die hele toer was so saamgestel dat ons baie besig was, maar alles was goed gebalanseerd gewees soos vrye tyd en georganiseerde toere. Ons het so baie kere so lekker gelag. George was n great toerleier gewees. Hy het uit sy pad gegaan om ons almal ewe welkom te laat voel. Hy was altyd baie profesioneel gewees en n besonderse goeie beeld van C the World geskep. Hy het baie daartoe bygedra dat dit altyd vir ons n onvergeetlike vakansie sal wees. Alle voorspoed met al julle bedrywighede. -Europe August 2015

An experience we would never forget.The Dinners that were part of the package was really nice – Well planned.-Europe September 2014

In general your selection of hotels was very good and all of us commented that compared with some tour operators you certainly did not skimp on our accommodation (the last dinner in Milan however left a bit to be desired!) The coach was also good and we were very lucky in having such an able and caring driver like Richard.
Admittedly we were a bit on the aged side, but some of the tour guides went a bit fast for us wrinklies, but in general they were pleasant and well informed. -April Italy 2015
