What my customers have to say

  • Mikes support and guidance for our trip of our life was made so good with his judgment of what would work for us. The excursions worked out great, making our 5 week holiday in Dubai, Great Britain and Ireland so memorable. After such a long lockdown it was great to getaway with such and enjoyable holiday thanks to Mikes support. We now look forward to planning our next trip with Mike from House of travel Hobsonville. Highly recommend going through Mike for your dream holiday.

  • We had the best experience with Buzz and his team - he helped us plan a family reunion trip to Fiji meeting some family from the USA. We had the best time and when we hit a few speed bumps, he was quick to assist. I would recommend using him for all your travel requirements. If I could give 6 stars I would ;)
  • Buzz and his team at HOT Hobsonville have been amazing to deal with. We got caught up in the Jan 2023 weather event and his communications have been proactive, helpful and constant. I’d recommend these guys to anyone looking to book travel - you’ll get amazing service and support.
  • In all of my dealings with Buzz Thomson and House of Travel Hobsonville I have received valuable detailed information, being made aware of all the options open to me. His advice meant that I saved money by booking my holiday at the right time and that, when travel complications arose, the matter was in the hands of experts and was fully resolved. Buzz’s personal knowledge of particular world destinations enable me to find local accommodation precisely, having in mind my own requirements including tours and other activities, neighbourhoods, budget and hotel style. I would always seek Buzz’s international holiday advice, confident that he places my interests first.
