My decision to travel with Thomson Safaris was based on your website, which was very direct, informative and thorough. A lot of the competitors were very aloof about pricing and I like that all the pricing was very straightforward.
Penny and I noticed early on that our grandchildren were totally engaged and uncharacteristically well behaved. It seemed they left their sibling rivalries at home for the whole trip. Their parents were amazed as were we, but we enjoyed every minute.
The cultural component was so important to me in choosing a trip to Tanzania and Thomson Safaris does a great job with the Cultural Safari. There was a nice mix of wildlife and culture. Everyday was very special and I love how you give back to the people of Tanzania and employ people born in Tanzania.
