Testimonials

...here are a few samples of what recent travellers had to say about Civilized Adventures: 

I would highly recommend Civilized Adventures to my friends and family. The agents make the trip run smoothly and cover all the details well, making it worry free. Everyone is friendly and welcoming and appear genuinely interested in making our trip enjoyable. 

S.L., Kenya, June 2018

 
Karen made my bucket list a beautiful reality. I'm so glad that I entrusted the planning for our Galapagos trip to Karen Schulz. Although my lifelong obsession with the Galapagos Islands was the main reason we chose Ecuador, the places and activities that Karen suggested for our tour of the mainland after the cruise turned out to be equally awe-inspiring, not to mention just plain fun. Karen attended to every detail of the trip, which meant we were able to fully immerse ourselves in the experience and enjoy it to the fullest. 
 
P.B. Ecuador & Galapagos, May 2018
 

Both of us think Andrew is a genius. He read both of us really well and planned a trip that really worked for us. Thanks Andrew and if anyone is thinking about a trip be sure to look Andrew up. 

N&L, India, May 2018

Second time around [travelling with Civilized Adventures], so we knew what to expect. Karen is prompt, thorough, comes up with good suggestions, very responsive when things come up, and receptive to feedback. 

G.H. Ecuador & Galapagos, May 2018

We had a wonderful trip. The hotel in SF was amazing - the extras were a nice bonus! We enjoyed the cruise, Regent catered to our every need and the scenery was beautiful. The tours we picked were also top notch. Thank you for all your help Ajay. We look forward to working with civilized on our next trip, wherever that may be.
 
J&B E, Alaska Cruise, April 2018

Thank you Andrew, and thank you for all your hard work and advise over the past year. You've been awesome to work with and I'm sure you've set us up for an unforgettable experience.

M.A. Tanzania, February 2018

Hi Karen and Ajay, I just wanted to let you both know what a fabulous trip we had - everything was perfect and so memorable. My fractured wrist was not an issue at all and everyone was so attentive and helpful. Thanks for helping bring this trip together for all of us. 

K.A. Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania, January 2018

MOST important from my feedback is what a superb job you and the Civilized Team did organizing a wonderful experience, where we could focus on the experiences and learnings, because your team had all the logistics/ details so seamlessly handled, including border crossings and flights, … what an incredible value  THANKS Andrew.

A.B. Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania, January 2018

The mix of your planning and being on our own worked out well for us. I forgot how much I love traveling in Europe, the history is magical, the art is unbelievable. 

G.B., France AMA Cruise, November 2017

The trip surpassed our expectations – especially the safari portion. It felt totally surreal getting as close to all of the animals as we did. We had some amazing experiences and saw so many spectacular things. We were very impressed with both Travis during the safari portion and with Leonard (Leo) McMillan who was our guide in Capetown for the last 9 days. Both of these young men went above & beyond their job descriptions. We can honestly say about both of them that we met total strangers and came away with two new friends. Thank you Karen for giving us memories to last a lifetime.

R & K - Zimbabwe, Botswana & South Africa, October 2017

R&K, Zimbabwe, September 2017

I want to let you know that Barb and I had a fantastic trip to Zimbabwe! Everything about it - the leadership of Brian and Dee, reconnecting with our old friends, the people of Zimbabwe, and all the sites and amazing animals - was amazing. The trip was superbly well organized and all of our travel was easy and uncomplicated and all the accommodations were great. We are very grateful to you and your colleagues at Civilized Adventures for putting together this fantastic trip for us - thank you!

J&B, Zimbabwe, September 2017

The Costa Ricans are wonderful people and we really enjoyed the trip. The way it was planned had the right emphasis on good nature walks with knowledgeable guides, with some rest and relaxation as well. Thanks Ajay for all your organization, and especially being on hand to book the tickets through Mexico City if Houston remained flooded.

R.N., Costa Rica, September 2017

Things have been absolutely amazing.  The kids are having the time of their lives.  Things have happened that just never could have been planned.  In Soweto, the kids had a South Africa / Canada soccer match.  And then at lunch that day six of the kids ended up in a Nike commercial.  The  first safari just blew them away as lions rubbed against the vehicle and 26 elephants played and swam in the water in front of the lodge over lunch.

Arrangements have been perfect and all is well. Cape Town, of course, is much slower than the safaris but has been great and now looking forward to the Garden Route. Guides have done a great job and everyone is happy.   Did everything in Cape Town that was scheduled and although the weather is cooler and have had a bit of rain it has worked out well.  The day at the Cape was beautiful. Ajay you've done a great job.   

Saville, South Africa, August 2017 

Andrew understood immediately what type of trip we were looking for and our expectations. He booked us in the boutique type lodgings we were hoping for and took into consideration our suggestions of what we did and did not want. The tour companies and their guides that he booked for us were outstanding. Thank you, Andrew, great job!

Rite, Spain & France, July 2017

Ajay was a super travel agent to deal with! Ajay takes the time to understand the type of holiday you want, and the type of traveller you are. Hi is very organized and provides clear information & excellend suggestions. Ajay gets back to you when he says he will and is personable, easy to deal with and takes care to ensure your holiday goes smoothly. We will definitely be booking further adventures with Ajay's help.

J Symonds, Italy, June 2017

I wanted to thank you so much for all the work you did on our behalf to make our trip so fantastic. Absolutely everything was arranged as promised. All of the accommodations were beautiful and unique with great locations within each city we visited. Our guides throughout were so knowledgeable and personable that we enjoyed every minute and had some good laughs. Thank you so much Andrew for your thoughtfulness and expertise. We appreciate everything you did for us. The only thing we would do different would be to stay longer.
