met Val in July of 2004 when I wanted to take a trip to the
Fall Foliage in Atlantic Canada. She
matched me with a travel companion from Nanaimo to avoid the
single supplement This was a
wonderful trip. I would recommend this club to anyone.
am already registered for other trips the Club
May I traveled with 16 members of the Club to four Greek Islands
and Athens. It was a wonderful
holiday. Everything was
well planned and the accommodations were excellent. Earlier
this year a group
visited Cuba. We spent 3 days in Havana
& 4 days in Varadero. Great trip, good accommodations &
evrything went smoothly.
life begins at 60
I will start off by saying something really corny, yet very
true. This travel club has opened up
a whole new world for me. As a retired widow, it was difficult
to find friends to travel with. Those
who could afford it, could not get away, those who had the time,
did not have the money. You
know the story. It is much too expensive and lonely to travel
alone. Then I happened to attend a
travel meeting and Val gave a presentation on a South Africa
trip. Well, it sounded wonderful, so I
signed up, not knowing who my roommate would be, and hoping
we would be compatible, and
especially hoping she would not be a neat freak! Well, I was
delighted on both counts. We have
had three overseas trips together and one road trip since.
The travel club meets once a month and those who attend discuss
where they would like to go.
There is a lot of sharing from experienced travelers and very
interesting presentations from various
travel agencies. We make suggestions on the type of accommodation
we would like and can afford
and the things that would be the most interesting to us, taking
into consideration our physical
abilities, etc. etc. Obviously some of us are not going bungy
jumping or snow boarding! Val takes
all these factors into consideration and puts together the best
possible trips for us. We as a group
have a great deal of flexibility in regards to the sights we
wish to see. If we are not interested
in seeing 16 dancing snakes, we can omit that part of the trip!
This group is a wonderful opportunity to combine the joys of
travel with the interesting
conversation and company of our group. We also enjoy those who
join us from other parts of the
world. Everyone there loves the new experiences and delights
of travel. I look forward to the trip
to India in November and Kenya next spring. There is always
something exciting to anticipate just
around the next corner!
Dear Val - will no longer be eligible for your club next month,
as I shall be getting married here in
Manila. Have fun traveling, and bringing joy and happiness to
so many lives. Love and God Bless
Thanks for your personal touch to all our trips. Much appreciated
October 2010 I went on my first Singles Travel trip with Val.
We were away 18 days and had
a most enjoyable and educational trip. Everything was well organized
with excellent guides, drivers,
hotels, food and air/boat transportation. Every day was packed
full of activities. I bought a piece
of furniture at X' Ian and appreciated Val's help with bargaining.
One member developed a health
issue and needed hospital care and she received excellent care
from Val, the guide and the hospital.
The lady was able to carry on with the rest of the tour after
one day of rest. I am looking forward
to my next trip with Singles Travel and think this company offers
very good value and service to all
you so much for all you do which helped make my dream of a lifetime
come true Thank you
for all the background work you do that not all get to see and
going that extra mile was very much
appreciated by me
joined the Singles Travel club in order to travel and meet other
people who also like to travel. It
was a good decision. Last fall I traveled to China with the
group for 16 days of fun and adventure.
Everything went extremely well from beginning to end. The trip
was well organized, taking us to
many historical and beautiful spots.The group was wonderful
to travel with - fun and friendly, and
no luggage was lost - in spite of 8 plane trips! It was the
most exciting and adventurous trip of my
life and I can't wait to do more travel with Val.
you for doing a super job in organizing all our travel arrangements
and tours though South
Africa. We really enjoyed the trip & appreciate all you
have done to make it a great holiday. Traveled
on 6 trips with the Singles Travel Club & booked to go on
took my first trip with the Singles Travel Club February 2011.
We went to South Africa. It was the
trip of my life. We saw and did what I had expected and more.
Val had matched me with a lady who
I didn't know and we got along like sisters. So much that on
our way home we were planning our next
trip. We were twenty-two, eighteen women and four men. I felt
safe with the group and by the end
of the trip we were like a big family. I will be going with
the club to Turkey in September and then
France in May 2012. Thanks Val for making my dreams become reality.
bouquet to Val of the Singles Travel Club. Thanks for coming
to Nanaimo every month to provide us
with fabulous trips. I look forward to the trips being planned
for this year.
in the Nanaimo News.
the trips I have been on have been well organized, very interesting.
I learned lots about the areas
I visited, hotels were very good. I have travelled with different
people & have had no issues with
roommates. Joining the Singles Travel Club is one of the best
decisions I have ever made.
would like to thank you for arranging the cruise from Havana
this past week. Everything was good.
I enjoyed our 2 days at the beach resort also - our accommodations
there were really good - quiet
and very clean. Everything went smoothly - thanks again
mazing trip !!
Wanted to tell you I was blown away by our Collette Tour of
Exceeded my expectations totally. Wow!
Fantastic tour guide, fantastic array of educational activities,
beautiful hotels, the list goes on.
We had spectacular weather too! It seemed like a lot of money
at the time but that was the best
chunk of change I ever spent on myself in my life! Collette
included SO much, not to mention ten
flights! Thank you so much for including this trip as an option
on your website. I'm so very glad I
took the plunge and booked it.
I’m wondering if your travel club is offering a certain
I have travelled with you in the past, but not for a while.
A friend hooked me up with XXXXXXXX
sent me info. on it. I’m hesitating travelling with XXXXXXXX
again as the same group of people seem to go
on all the trips and some of them have formed likes and dislikes
between them. It’s like travelling with a
dysfunctional family. It takes away from the travel experience.
I never felt that way with your club.
