JORDAN & TURKEY – Your Trip Planning Help Was INVALUABLE!

Big Five’s trip planning help was INVALUABLE!  First, because I had worked with you and my co-worker on previous trips so I knew Big Five knew their stuff! having  Destination Specialist who have visited Jordan and Turkey always gives clients (and travel agents) a reassured feeling of that personal “boots on the ground” experience.

Jordan was an incredibly life-changing experience: swimming in the Dead Sea, visiting Petra, the Bedouin camp, the Red Sea each of these would have been worth a separate journey.  And we did them all in one trip!

Very important: we always felt safe and welcome everywhere we went, in both Jordan and Turkey, I got the feeling they really like Americans!

I really wanted to make use of your White Glove Service®, but I honestly didn’t need to!  From the time, we walked out of the jetway in Amman, where we were welcomed by(a Big Five representative) from the local office to he moment, that same person shepherded us through the gate for our flight home two weeks later, all our needs and wants were met by our guides and by the hotel staffs.


Machu Pichhu- Absolutely Fantastic

” I am emailing you to commend Big Five for the quality of your guides and your drivers during our recent trip to Asia.”  My wife and I really appreciated not only their professionalism and knowledge, but for their friendship.  These are really quality people who made our trip enjoyable and memorable.  The drivers were also professional and sociable,especially in Tokyo.  When people ask me what the highlight of our trip was I say that it was the people that we met.  Thank you to Big Five and your really great guides for making our trip so memorable.

Chile – Exclusive Experience

The resturants were the highlight – these guests were real foodies, and they thought that the chef  there were UNBELIEVABLE.

Thank you for recommending this.

Turkey Istanbul – Everyone’s Dedication to Making This Trip Memorable

My Client said he was welcomed to Istanbul by your White Glove Service® , he said the trip was great.  He commented that the guides were quite good.   He stated that he really likes the personalized service he’s received  and mentioned that he spoke with someone about planning something for his “off day”.  He said that at his request, your White Glove Service® worked on putting some plans together.  He was so  impressed by that and  excited to see what they were able put togetherat the last minute.   My Client said he was surprised by how busy Istanbul is- he mentioned they were held up a bit by a traffic jam this morning, but said it’s to be expected in such a hustling, bustling place.  He commented again on how impressed he is by everyone’s dedication to making this trip memorable.


Africa – Game Drive – “Exhausted But Happy As Clams”

I just got back from my game drive at  MalaMala.  We were exhausted but happy as clams because this morning was only our 2nd game drive and we have already seen all the animals!   My Family and I are having a great time.
