What my customers have to say

  • We worked with Kim from House of Travel Takanini to book a cruise and she was AMAZING! I have never had a travel agent as friendly, efficient and knowledgable as Kim. I will be using her for all holiday bookings in future based off my experience with her.
  • This is the second time we've had Kim sort our Travel Plans and I can't say enough, she is a Super Star. Nothing is an issue. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
  • Thanks for all your help with planning our trip. Excellent Service as usual.
