The best customer service I have ever experienced from any travel company in my life.
Thomson is a life-changing, first-class operation committed to care and excellence.
The porters rave about how excited they are to work for Thomson and how their treatment, both financially and physically, is at a much higher standard than it is with other companies.
Words will never be able to explain how beautiful the Roof of Africa is. It is like being in another world altogether–a collision of the moon, the arctic, and a land I’d never known.
We saw many ‘lesser’ trek guides on the mountain. Thomson distinguished themselves in every way.
We were stunned every time our head waiter, Moses, managed to clean up after breakfast, pass us on the trail, and have a nice lunch waiting for us.
