11D8N Great Caucasus (09MCGYDA26/18QR) - 26 Sep 2018 to 6 Oct 2018The feedback form limits our words. My husband and I would like to thank Ms Kim Ng for her recommendations for this package tour. The sceneries are truly beautiful, people are friendly and warm and food are good too. It would be regrettable if we did not go to Caucasus. Kim listened to our concerns and interests. She made suggestions and recommendations that aligned appropriately to my and my husband’s needs. After we booked and paid for the package tour, she still stayed in contact with us by providing timely information on the tour (e.g weather, things to bring, etc) and assuring us that Caucasus is a worthy place to visit. I sincerely appreciate the excellent quality customer services provided by Kim. To Kim, we would like to say a big THANK YOU.We would also like to commend our tour manager, Mr H.M. Chong.

He helped those aged passengers with their luggages, and helped them board and alight from coaches, held and walked with these needy passengers up and down slopes, steps and stony roads. In Baku, the main course during the dinner were delayed for a long time. It was late and most of the passengers were tired. Eventually, we decided to leave the restaurant without eating the main course. He took remedy actions immediately and assured everyone that all would be fine. To make good the situation, we had trout fish for dinner at a fine restaurant with good ambience and service on the next day. The food and service at that restaurant were indeed very good. Throughout the tour, he provided excellent services, exhibited great passion and responsibility as our tour manager. He took the initiative to take photos and videos for all of us and made sure that everyone were safe and satisfied while having a great time.

This is our 2nd time travelling with EU Holidays and we must say it was an excellent experience.We guess we owe this pleasant experience to our tour manager, Mr Jeremiah Tan.During our 11 days trip, he was very sincere, very enthusiastic and makes great efforts to plan each day’s itinerary to the fullest together with the local guides. On top of that he is highly knowledgeable and in the know. We also find Jeremiah to be a very responsible and personable tour manager. He is mild mannered and caring towards our elderly tour mates.We feel that he is an asset to his employer. We would definitely recommend EU Holidays to our friends.Thank you, EU Holidays for arranging and giving us a chance to know Jeremiah.Jeremiah thanks for your wonderful service.We will be back!

I want to commend Ms KEK OOI LENG for her excellent customer service. She attended to me when I first made the booking and she listened to our 'complaints'. When we told her that we were disappointed that we couldn't get the free umbrellas, she was in the middle of leading her tour and said she would get back to us when she is back. I didn't expect her to remember but she really remembered and it was such a pleasant surprise to hear from her that she managed to get the umbrellas for us. It was a very nice gesture from her and we appreciate it. Hopefully next time we get a chance for her to be our tour manager for our future trips with EU Holidays.
