Dear Rikesh

The trip to Zanzibar was excellent. The stay at both Park Hyatt and Blue Bay Beach Resort was comfortable and our family was well taken care by the hotel and resort.

We really enjoyed the trip.

Thanks for all the assistance.

Tanzania Safari

We worked with the Canadian office (Naz was our contact) to arrange our Safari and Zanzibar tour. Naz was extremely accomodating and met us in the city after work to discuss our options. She was clearly very knowledgeable about Tanzania and offered valued perspective on our planned routes. After deciding on our vacation, Naz took care of the rest by booking all of our accommodation and flights very quickly. At the end of the day, all we had to do was show up at the airport, Naz took care of the rest. After landing in Arusha, we met our driver, Richard who was right on time! Richard was an excellent, knowledgeable driver. On our long drives, he would educate us on the history, culture, and all other things Tanzania. My wife and I had an expectation of the driver we would be teamed with and Richard surpassed all expectations. This was the vacation of a lifetime, and we couldn't be happier with the service and experience we received. One last point, Naz knew how busy we were leading up to our wedding and even gave us her binoculars to use on Safari!

I would highly recommend Rickshaw to anyone considering visiting Tanzania or going on Safari.

Hi Roselyne,

I have been meaning to contact you since we got back to say a massive THANKYOU.

Our safari was truly amazing. We got very lucky and had our amazing tour guide Mike to ourselves. Honestly he is such an asset to your team. He’s fun, friendly and a fountain of knowledge when it comes to Kenya. I was sad to say bye to him at the end of the trip.

Your support was also great Roselyne so thanks again for all the perfect arrangements you made. Especially the hot air balloon ride. Watching the sunrise over Kenya was a once in a life time experience which I will never forget.

All the hotels were great. The only feedback I gave on your survey form was for the plug sockets to work in the land cruiser and pillows to be provided for those long drives (which was a joke).  As Mike pointed out we shouldn’t be sleepimg.

I will definatly be recomending you to friends. Have a great day.

Thanks.  Regards

Sarah

Tanzania Safari

We only have words of praise and warm recommendations of Rickshaw Tours and Travel. Just got home from safari and beach holiday in Tanzania and Zanzibar. Everything was well planned and coordinated so we had time to enjoy the holiday and time together. The safari guide was extremely competent, humorous and pleasant to be around. Tanzania offered peaceful, open and very kind local people, nice hotels and a fantastic exiting and rich animal life. We would be happy to travel with you again.

Dear Andrea

The experience has indeed been memorable.  I understand that it is not easy with such short notice to manage such a big group and to accommodate to our precise needs. 

Pick up at KIA was on time and smooth, all cars were in perfect conditions and within 5 minutes the group was on board of the vehicles and on the way to the Serena at Arusha.  I must say that the choice of Property was perfect and that check in had already been prepared prior to our arrival, so within 1 hr from landing, the Group was already accommodated in their rooms.

We were perfectly received and attended by the whole Rickshaw team but especially by Deepak and Joseph.  They have really done a great job and effort to adapt to all our needs and requests.  We changed some of the initial arrangement to accommodate game drive preferences for the different cars, changing also to picnic boxes or to full lunches when needed.  Your team reacted always with a smile, with efficiency and speed to makes things possible.

Game drives were of a really high quality, not only because of the will of nature, but also because of the effort of the drivers/guides and specially because you included one more car with Deepak and Edward to go in advance and help the group to spot interesting game like lions, elephants, etc.

The stay at Tarangire Sopa Lodge was equally satisfactory.  Again perfect organization by your team.  When the Group arrived, Deepak had already pre-checked in everybody and within 5 minutes the group families were in their rooms and getting ready for the swimming pool and lunch.  Deepak had also made special arrangements for table reservations for both lunch and dinner as well as a private area for after dinner drinks.

The group also really appreciated the gifts that Rickshaw presented to each and every family.  This will allow us to keep a good memory of this excellent weekend.

I would also like to personally thank you Andrea and the rest of the backstage team at your office for making it possible.

You all have contributed to improve TPCC Management Team relation and moral to continue working hard for our company and this is highly appreciated.

Best regards

Alfonso

We would like to send our warmest thanks and appreciation for your logistical support during Minister Monica Mæland's visit to Tanzania.

The Minister's visit was a success and this was largely due to the tireless commitment of the Rickshaw team.
