Anne was great - she has organized 3 trips to the UK for me and they were all terrific. She listened to what we were looking for and built the itinerary around our timeline to maximize our travel plans.

Anne was fun to work with. She was knowledgeable, tracked down all my requests and went over and above to ensure that I had answers to all my questions. The trip was fabulous and I knew I didn't need to worry about logistics thanks to Anne.

Excellent and Efficient

Anne Bird arranged for the flights into Hanoi and out of Ho Chi Minh for 3 of us travelling to Vietnam for a 2-week tour. She recommended flying "premium economy", which gave us extra room in the seating area for a more restful overseas flight, as well as upgraded service for meals. Our flights were organized with a short lay-over in Taipei. All in all, the travel went smoothly, without a hitch. Anne gave us efficient service and answers to our questions about visas into Vietnam and when to obtain our boarding passes. Thank you, Anne.

custom moroccan tour

By: andy

Reviewed on: 13 Nov 2018

Since we first went on Oasis of Saghro we repeated the same route went through the Tichka pass twice etc. In hindsight we should have gone the other way around back from Essaouira to Casablanca. The distances are long eight hour drives. We had already seen Ait Ben Haddou so it was another repeat.Also perhaps we should have flown out of Marrakech. The last week the weather was not pleasant snow in Ifrane which was not expected in October. and pelting rain. The riads were absolutely marvelous. Also leaving Chefchaouen there was a suggestion to stop in Rabat that is not possible as the distances are far. These are observations that we made. Many thanks to Anne

Last Minute Rock Star!

By: Michelle C

Reviewed on: 09 Nov 2018

We presented Anne with some very specific parameters (dates and certain airlines) with less than 2 weeks to travel date - a very spontaneous trip. She rocked it! All arrangements made were 100% spot on! Anne even gave some recommendations on how to book entry to certain sites (many were sold out) and we managed to squeak in and trust the vendors. I highly recommend Anne - she worked magic with only 36 hours to confirm everything and we would not have enjoyed such a fabulous in Spain without her expertise!

Foodie tour of South Korea

Anne Bird has been my agent for a number of trips and has proven to be very diligent in taking care of me. For example, when I was left stranded in Frankfort on my way to Tehran as I result of a spontaneous Lufthansa strike, she immediately made efforts to reroute me . She is familiar with many of the areas that I have planned to travel with and is a pleasure to deal with. (Pardon my ending the sentence with a preposition)

Anne is well travelled and offers first hand information on my potential tours. During a trip to Iran, Lufthansa went on strike, a complication she followed and made arrangements for alternative flights when I was already half way there. In addition, she is very pleasant to deal with

We enjoyed working with Anne, she is very knowledgable and her personal experience of our preferred destinations was a great asset, providing much confidence in advance of departure. In addition the documentation, agenda of daily activities , assistance with flight reservations all made life so much easier for us. We were equally impressed with North South's affiliates.
