MALTA ESCAPE

There is a need to be more specific and clear on the deals. I got lot of surprises such as choice of flight company, extra hotel taxes, changes in the initial deal of spa treatments to breakfast, etc

Europe & Africa

Service rating : Excellent holiday with comfortable, well situated hotels. Service and information very good. The only thing I would suggest is that instead of flying from Porto to Lisbon, the train would have been easier (the station being around the corner from the hotel), more relaxing without the hassle of airports.
Product : Good value for money. Would book again

LA & LAS VEGAS STAYS

Service rating : Excellent trip to Las Vegas, Long Beach & Mexican Riviera cruise, bought via Secret Escapes it was a good deal.
Product : Luxor hotel is a big hotel at the end of the strip. Well placed for getting out and about. Very much enjoyed our two nights on Queen Mary in Long Beach. It was well placed to set off on our 7 night cruise on Carnival Panorama to Mexican Rivieras. This is a new and very big cruise ship. Lots of amenities and slick operation.

PRAGUE, VIENNA & BUDAPEST CITY-HOP WITH OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS & DANUBE WINE CRUISE

Service rating : A wonderful 9 day tour taking in Prague, Vienna and Budapest. I saw this originally on Secret Escapes website. The flights, hotels, train journeys and transfers were all excellent. The 3 hotels were all situated away from the typical tourist areas but this meant local restaurants were more affordable. The 4 star hotels with B&B were excellent although the hotel in Vienna was somewhat pedestrian. This holiday coincided with the Christmas market season and with 3 days in each city it was easy to combine these with culture. The holiday was excellent value and the one issue that I had to contact the company about was dealt with quickly. I would certainly recommend this tour and Viva Holidays.
Product : This was not the tour we took.Our holiday was the city hop during the Christmas market period. We were not given the option of excursions/tours. We organised all additional tours ourselves. We took 3 excellent free walking tours in each city and attended 2 music concerts that we organised ourselves once in Prague and Vienna.

India

Service rating : They could make better arrangements and not use dirty hotels we had to change hotels at the final location which cost us £200 which i expect to have refunded
Product : I was not impressed with the tour and the final hotel was very dirty not up to a standard that should be expected so we had to change hotels the additional cost was £200 plus we had to make a call to get the correct internal flight details that cost another £20

ROME, VENICE & LAKE

The hotels were sub standard as was the travel arrangements, when we complained we were told cant help, spent hundreds of pounds to make it bearable

Europe & Africa

Service rating : We have booked three holidays with Viva Holidays and this time Rey helped us with our tailor made arrangements to Tallinn, Riga and St Petersburg. We chose the three hotels and every one was exactly as we expected with quality accommodation and superb leisure facilities. The flights were good, especially the return to Gatwick from St Petersburg when we flew on a plane which was part of Aeroflot (Poccna) with lots of leg room and comfortable seats. He kept us informed right through from booking to the departure date. We would definitely use this Company again.
Product : This is the third holiday we have booked with Viva Holidays. Rey dealt efficiently with our requirements and tailor made our holiday to Tallinn, Riga and St Petersburg to suit us and kept us informed from the moment we booked to our departure. The hotels we chose were as expected with superb accommodation and leisure facilities. The flights were good, especially the return from St Petersburg to Gatwick when we flew back with Aeroflot on a Poccna plane. We would use Viva Holidays again.

Product : The price was amazing and I was sent vouchers for all the hotels and the train tickets. It was so well organised. The hotels were good, not the top end but clean and friendly.

ROMANTIC ITALY BREAK WITH A MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE

Service rating : Tickets not forwarded from cruise company until I chased them up 10 days after they were sent to viva.
Train tickets not sent until 6 days prior to our departure after I chased them up
Wrong Como train station info given to us. Station is not within 10 minutes walk. A taxi was required
Had to get a private transfer between cruise terminal as the time between docking and flight was so short. Cruise company would not guarantee the transfer bus would get us there on time.
Could be more helpful
Product : Not much time in Venice. Maybe 2 nights would be better

21-Oct-2019

Indian Ocean

Service rating : I was a little sceptical about using Viva Holiday to book our BIG holiday of the year, having never heard of them. We travelled to Dubai and Mauritius, stayed in 5 star hotels and can't fault them in the slightest. The price was fantastic and we will definitely be using them again next year.
Product : What you get for the price is fantastic.

Far East

Service rating : Booking was fairly painless but no mention of building refurbishment going on outside reception/lounge area.
Having to pre-order breakfast the day before was most unusual!
Balcony turned out to be main walkway to rooms. No dining area so all meals in room or on small rattan table on balcony.
Product : Good location. Lovely people but lacking facilities.
Maintenance needs attention (basin plugs unusable and not fixed during two week stay)

HIP TALLINN & HELSINKI CITY-HOP WITH FERRY TRAVEL

Service rating : I booked for four nights - then tried to change to six. This turned out to be beyond the people I spoke to and I gave up and stayed with four nights. That is the only reason I gave four not five stars?
Product : Both hotels were lovely. The staff and breakfasts in both were perfect. I loved the swimming pool in the Helsinki hotel.
It would have been helpful to have a transfer from Tallinn airport as we landed late at night. I tried to book this through you and was quoted 56 Euros. I booked it privately for 15 Euro. In the event my flight was delayed and my lift had gone to another job, but contacted me, apologised and refunded me which I thought marvellous service. A taxi was only 20 Euros even late at night.
Both Tallinn and Helsinki are spotlessly clean. Both are a pleasure to walk around. Both are quite expensive for food and drink. I loved the architecture in Tallinn and the museums in Helsinki.

I desperately wanted to try out the electric scooters in Helsinki - they looked such fun. Another time.

The ferry included was the 'slow' ferry. There is a faster ferry - I don't know how much that would have added to the cost of the holiday.

Yes, I would book through you again. The paperwork came through in a timely fashion and everything was as described. Thank you

Italian City

The original price was more than we expected. By using different hotels, they were able to reduce this cost. The timings for the original flights didn't suit us: they changed them. The transfer times for the trains didn't quite suit us: they changed them too. (I think we changed nearly everything at least once and possibly more.) Nothing was too much trouble, or too much of a pain for them. Rose was particularly helpful, but if she wasn't available, her boss sorted it out. They really provided an excellent service - we would never have been able to organize a 3-city holiday break in Italy without them and my husband and I are still waxing lyrical to anyone who is prepared to listen!!
