South Africa

We have just returned from what one can only call an amazing 2 centre South African experience. This was our first ever trip with Riviera and although we had heard good reports it surpassed our expectations, from the moment we landed and collected our cases in Johannesburg we were pampered through and through, our tour guides Sam and Stuart were excellent with their humorous banter and attention to detail could not fault them, the Hotels were all of a good standard and food was excellent, would certainly use this company again can not speak highly enough of this trip.

India & Nepal

Fantastic trip with an assault on the senses. We found it very exciting, action packed and well run. Gill our tour manager was superb with her professionalism and friendly attitude. Sony our local guide in India was excellent, keen to ensure we got the most from our visit with her knowledge and happy personality. Vivek our Nepalese guide was also outstanding.
Thank you once again Gill.

Jerusalem, Galilee & the Dead Sea

My wife and I have just returned from our seven day tour of Israel. In every respect this tour exceeded our expectations. The itinerary made the very most of every day’s time. We visited Tel Aviv, Caesarea, Akka, Nazareth, Tiberias, The Sea of Galilee, the Dead Sea, Masada, and three days exploring Jerusalem with an afternoon excursion to Bethlehem. The 4 star hotel accommodation at four locations was on the whole good providing clean, spacious rooms and food that offered a wide choice of well prepared dishes for both breakfast and supper. The highlight of the trip were the Israeli and Palestinian guides who accompanied the group each day providing intelligent, perceptive insights into the complex and unique history of Israel and Palestine. We were all genuinely sad to say goodbye to Natalie Syvan, the young Israeli guide at the end of the week. She took great pains to ensure that the group were well informed and so ensured the success of our many visits. We were fortunate that our group of 36 were lively and friendly and we have returned to the UK with our minds still buzzing from our diverse and rich cultural experience. Would strongly recommend this Riviera Tour. Many thanks also to Francesca.

Classical Spain

What a wonderful holiday. This was our first organised tour and everything about it was brilliant. The people, the places, the trips, the guides and the Spanish tapas. If we go on another organised tour it will definitely be with you.
Thank you

A Journey on the Mekong - RV Mekong Prestige II

We have just travelled to Vietnam and Cambodia and also did the river cruise for 7 nights, we had a marvelous holiday the hotels were of exellent quality and the river boat was just wonderful.  The food on the boat was good and always lots of choice and well prepared and the staff were very attentive.
We would like to say a big thank you to Bob Swain our courier throughout the trip who looked after all 26 of us so well…... We also had 2 reps in Vietnam and 2 in Cambodia who were excellent and very knowledgeable…
This is only our second trip with Riviera holidays, we did an Indian tour with a Shimla add on last year which we thoroughly enjoyed…... a big thank you to all the Riviera staff you are all doing a wonderful job!
Regards Mo & John Maneely

Marrakesh & the Atlas Mountains

My husband and I have just returned from Marrakesh and The Atlas Mountains. From the point of booking to landing back at Gatwick the whole experience went like clockwork. Thank you to everyone at Riviera Travel. We cannot praise our Tour Guide Mohamed Khemiri enough for his professionalism, knowledge, wit and care. He made all the tours interesting, relaxing, diverse and happy.

5 star holiday and highly recommended.  We look forward to travelling with you again.

Bruges

First class holiday , Travel arrangements perfect.  We had “Angus” as our Guide and his knowledge of the city of Bruges and the history of the area was most impressive, and helped to make our visit to Bruges very enjoyable.

We would love to holiday with Riviera again, Thank you

Bruges

Just returned from a short break in Bruges, excellent break, hotel nice clean and the staff very pleasant.
Our tour guide Annette was brilliant she seemed to be always around and was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the tour.
Beautiful city with lovely restaurants, bars and coffee shops, Riviera tours really look after you if you want but if you want to explore on your own there is plenty to do.
First tour with Riviera tours but not our last.

Paris

Traveled with Riviera Travel to Paris for a four day weekend trip and enjoyed this short break immensely! Our experienced tour manager was Paul, who was most professional and friendly, and provided everyone with useful tips and wonderful suggestions. This was my first trip with a tour company and Riviera Travel was just wonderful, making the trip so easy with their opt-in or opt-out guided tours. Looking forward to returning to Riviera soon for another fabulous, hassle-free vacation! Thank you!
