Here is what some of our clients have to say:
Tim Ryan – 01 March 2019
Sonia has assisted my family with a number of overseas holidays, including most recently, tailored trips to Japan for my teenage daughter and I, and the USA for my teenage son and I. We had fantastic times! Sonia and her team did an excellent job researching and recommending tour, accommodation and sight-seeing options. Everything was booked well in advance and both holidays ran like the Japanese rail system – like clock-work – from hotel pick-ups, to meeting up with tour guides, to getting flights changed mid-stream! Sonia’s attention to detail, her responsiveness and ability to tailor vacations to suit all interests are second to none. All of which translates to seamless, low stress and highly memorable holidays; for both adults and teenagers alike!! I highly recommend using Sonia Jones Travel for all your holidays.
Bon, Brisbane – 4 February 2019
We recently travelled on ‘Viking Sky’ from London to Bergen via several ports in Norway in mid winter. It was an amazing experience. The cruise was called ‘In search of the Northern Lights’. The lights were visible on several occasions. Sonia looked after our travel arrangements with care and efficiency.
Maryke and Dan Maddocks – 29 October 2018
We have recently just arrived back from a two week trip in Vietnam. Sonia and the team had everything planned for us so well, that all we had to literally do was turn up! Every small detail was thought of, even down to sending us snaplock bags for our liquids for carry on luggage!
We cannot thank Sonia and her team enough for the incredible work they put into making our honeymoon the most amazing memorable experience we could ever have wished for. Seriously will never holiday again doing it ourselves!! You are hired for life girls!! Thank you!!
Alicia Burrell – 22 October 2018
Sonia has been booking our travel for years (including our honeymoon to the Maldives) and she is the only person we trust with our travel plans. She recently saved us so much trouble when our hotel flooded 3 days before we were due to arrive with our twins, toddler and parents in tow! The accommodation she found us instead was incredible and we would have been so stuck had we not booked with her.We have recommended Sonia to many of our friends and can’t fault her level of service and commitment to her clients. We love that she knows us so well now that we can just tell her where we want to go and when and she not only picks the perfect accommodation options for us, but she makes the whole booking process so easy and painless.
Matt Williamson – 16 October 2018
For personalised high quality travel experiences, Sonia Jones Travel take care of it all. Our trip to Qualia Resort, Hamilton Island was seamless with flights, transfers as well as special upgrades only available through Sonia and her team. Professional and go the extra mile. Highly recommended!
Monica Andrews – 16 October 2018
Sonia and her team helped organise a recent holiday to NZ for my husband and I. They were very helpful throughout and helped us work out our itinerary around a few other things we wanted to go while in NZ. The accommodation recommended in Queenstown was 5 star and we’ll definitely be going back there again. Sonia had many tips on places to visits and things to do while we were there. Nothing was a problem and Sonia and her team were very obliging to our needs. Even when our flight home was cancelled and we got an extra day in Queenstown! We would happily recommend Sonia Jones Travel to anyone who’s thinking of a holiday soon!
Jane Mason – 15 May 2018
I have returned from an epic 56 day trip around South America, Central America and Cuba. Sonia worked tirelessly to work with my dates and all my wish lists. I had huge amounts internal flights and connections all over the place but it all worked perfectly. Sonia had chosen some great airlines, resorts and hotels for me. Sonia was so good with helping me with the difficult visa/online applications problems I had.
THE TRIP HIGHLIGHTS:
1. Peru was amazing and so diverse from the cold mountain in high attitude Machu Picchu and hot humid Amazon rainforests.
2. The huge Iguazu Falls. The view was amazing from the Brazil side, Argentina side and even underneath the falls.
3. The Mayan pyramids in both Guatemala and Mexico.
4. Cuba – was such an fascinating country.
I would recommend to all my family and friends to work with Sonia and her great crew!
Cara Stewart – 10 April 2018
We just got home after an amazing trip through Vietnam and Cambodia all organised by Sonia Jones Travel. The personal recommendations were a highlight and probably will remain some of our best travel memories ever – particularly Reaching Out Teahouse in Hoi An and the Phare Circus Cambodia. Thanks for everything Sonia and team.
Colin Green – 25 January 2018
We have just returned from a 14 day cruise organised by Sonia and, as anticipated, everything worked out perfectly. Last year Sonia organised our seven week holiday travelling through three countries in Scandinavia and this year she is working with us to plan and book six weeks in Canada. Sonia has been our travel agent now for five years and we don’t book with any other agencies. Her tips at the beginning of the planning process, her advice and guidance during the booking process and her assistance during the holiday itself are outstanding. Sonia is very knowledgeable about locations, accommodation, fares and attractions. During our planning Sonia is responsive to changes in itinerary and, if necessary, suggests an alternative route or location that is better than our initial choice. Having worked with us for a number of years, Sonia knows us, and understands what standard of accommodation we expect and how long we are likely to spend in a location. That makes planning that much simpler. We let Sonia do all the bookings and if a location, flight or train is not available she comes to us with suggested alternatives that we then discuss with her before selecting an option. During our travels we have had a couple of issues such as unexpected flooding of road and rail links. On each occasion a simple email to Sonia resolved the issue within a day with a new route selected. Sonia is friendly, knowledgeable, flexible and courteous and we strongly recommend her.
Neil Pennell – 24 January 2018
Recently visited Vietnam and Thailand with the guidance of Sonia. As always spot on with no hassles. Trails of Indochina in Da lat has become nearly family with Richard his wife and family. Another wonderful trip. Thanks Sonia
Melanie Mackenzie – 06 December 2017
My husband and I have just returned from an amazing ‘anniversary holiday’ to Italy and just can’t thank Sonia enough for the fabulous work she did for us. With limited time for our holiday we wanted to see as much as we could but also have time to soak up the history, culture, and of course sample the best of the local cuisine. From Rome to Florence to Venice we found ourselves in gorgeous boutique hotels in the best locations, often with lovely additions like upgrades, bubbly and breakfast buffets to go with the fantastic service. Our tours were exactly what we’d asked for, often private, small group or ‘skip the line’, and our guides were extremely knowledgeable – particularly when it came to history, art, food and local etiquette. Sonia had sent us hard copies of our itinerary and all tickets, but we particularly found her personalised travel app extremely useful for keeping track of our day to day plans (and for any alerts and updates). I had warned my husband to ‘be prepared’ as Italy is wonderful but often just doesn’t ‘work’ (things fall through, lines are long etc) but now he just doesn’t believe me. This was one of the easiest, most enjoyable and most delicious holidays we’ve ever had. Thanks so much for making it happen Sonia!! Mel&James
Sonia, thanks for organising a great ‘multigenerational’ family holiday for us to Fiji. 5 adults, including daughter, son and daughter-in-law and 3 grandchildren. Resort was great and staff fantastic with the children. Great location and plenty for all to do. Airport transfers went without a hitch and a fantastic time was had by all. Sad we had to come home!
Rick South – 7 July 2017
Sonia, the mobile app worked very well whilst I was overseas. I didn’t have to refer to any of the hard copy documents, but thanks for printing them out for me just in case. You were great to work with and attend to everything I needed for a successful business trip. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending you to anyone travelling overseas, and I’ll book through you for my next trip. Thank you!
Kerri Ketelhohn – 11 June 2017
What a wonderful travel experience. Huge thanks for your exceptional planning and attention to detail. The tours you arranged and the timing of them were perfect. Your consideration of my medical needs and advice certainly put me at ease. It has given me hope that I may be able to cope with longer flights and holidays in the future. The app is an excellent travelling tool. I will highly recommend you to anyone who needs a travel agent.
Daylesford was amazing. So quiet and relaxing, it feels like all we ate was degustation meals for 3 days and we enjoyed every bite! Every meal from the dinner at Peppers, to Wombat Hill cafe and Japanese in town were all world class! It was freezing but this allowed us to sit inside and relax by 1 of the 5 fires! The spa treatment was stunning and the mineral spas and lavender sauna stunning! Can’t wait to go back!
Sonia Jones organized our recent holiday in America, and everything was perfectly arranged, Sonia left no stone unturned and made sure that we were kept up to date with everything. The Axus Travel App was sensational and the update messages on flights were great. I would recommend Sonia to anyone planning for an extended holiday.
Thanks again Sonia for your assistance with planning our Australian adventure. Everything went perfectly, and as usual your suggestions worked well for us. We especially loved Broome! Your suggestion to stay at Seashells Resort was the correct one. A great spot.
James Cope – 27 April 2017
Staying at the Bellagio, the pearl of the strip, was a great experience thanks to Sonia and the incredible deal she found. Early check-in, daily breakfast credit, and the $100 food and beverage credit made it that much sweeter! Thank you, Sonia!
Mark Osborn – 26 April 2017
Fantastic. Had no problems with any flights or travel arrangements. Took 11 flights in 3 weeks with no hassles. Highly recommend Sonia for any travel arrangements. Thanks Sonia for all your efforts.
Gareth Ward- 15 February 2017
We have returned from a 4 week trip through Central Europe. As usual Sonia Jones made sure our trip was comfortable, with variety and great tips on what she knows we would like. She spends time to make sure we get the best experience. Thanks Sonia for putting our ideas and dreams together for a stress free memorable holiday.
Thank you Sonia for organising our accommodation for our honeymoon. We had a blast in montville. Highly recommend Sonia. She has a wealth of knowledge and is extremely helpful. We have been using Sonia for a number of years. Including our trip to Peru for my brothers wedding.
Hi Sonia, A big Thank You for organising another wonderful holiday for Daryl and I. Your advice re a private tour in Cambodia was fantastic as was your suggestion to attend PHARE. The Wendy Wu tour we chose was fantastic and your suggestion regarding the Land Only content also saved us money. All these things and your patience and professionalism is why we gave chosen you as our Travel Agent now for 12 years.
Nicole Saunders – 02 November 2016
Thank you to Sonia for organising our trip to Queenstown, NZ. Sonia was very helpful from the beginning and followed through until after we returned. Sonia well and truly ticked all the boxes when it came to what we wanted for our holiday and definitely was able to make it fit in to our budget. Even suggested things to do or places to see while there. We had a great time and there was so much to see and do. Also very spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat and drink. Our accommodation at Scenic Suites (ticked all the boxes) was great (highly recommend the self contained option) and it was also very handy having our own hire car. I think we clocked up well over 700klm with all the driving we did (to Milford Sound & back) including lots of day trips to local areas nearby. Everything is so close to Queenstown and it is such a beautiful place and country. We will definitely go back there again and also would highly recommed Sonia for all your travel needs.
Carmel Bishop – 24 October 2016
We spent the first week of the September school holidays enjoying our trip to Palm Cove. It is not a holiday that we would have enjoyed if not for winning the raffle at Padua College, and I just wanted to pass on our thanks to all those involved. Sonia, from our first contact you made things so very easy for us, incorporating our plans and slight adjustments, and even delivering the tickets to our home. We loved Palm Cove, and our trip to Kuranda on the Sky Rail, but truly special was our day snorkelling at Green Island. We swam with turtles, fish the colours of the rainbow, and Matt even got up close to a sting ray (I didn’t mind missing that one!) – a truly remarkable and memorable experience.
Trish Tidbold – 11 October 2016
Thank you Sonia for organising my Around the World trip. You made me feel so confident travelling on my own and knowing that you had organised all the details for me and a good tour company for a solo, woman traveller. Everything went perfectly thanks to you. My family and I were able to join up for the Rocky Mountaineer part so thanks for organising that too. I even managed the helicopter ride. The whole trip was amazing and I will never travel without the special Rocky Mountaineer bag you had given me. I was the envy of many on the tour. Thanks for once again doing the hard work so that I could relax and enjoy.
Toni Ritchie – 09 September 2016
Sonia, thank you for being our guardian angel. Oh you saved us, how many times!!! It was an adventure, one never to be forgotten. Your amazing planning made it so much easier. We had an amazing time.
