Testimonials

  • "Planning an overseas trip is a big undertaking, involving many hours of extra work. Steve Parsons HoT took the pressure off by making all the travel arrangements, including many little things we hadn’t thought about. It was well worthwhile making use of their expertise, experience and contacts – the trip ran smoothly with no hiccups. [...] Their standard of performance increases significantly, as does their commitment to the music groups they belong to. [...] Steve Parsons HoT is experienced in organising school trips, both sporting and cultural, and we valued the professional service and results they delivered. The partnership we have formed with them will definitely continue in the future."

    ~ Client

  • "Thank you for organising such a fantastic trip for us to Sydney! The hotel was excellent. When we got there they upgraded us to a room with a view, and had one we could check in to immediately at no extra cost […] Having the pool was great, we swam most days. The room and facilities were brilliant. […] We did the zoo, aquarium, wildlife place, tower, Manly, Opera House, Chinatown, shopping in the city, and botanic gardens. The kids were all great, and we had an absolute ball – could have stayed much longer!"
