Amanzi Travel Reviews


Myself and two friends booked the Southbound 21day adventure with Amanzi Travel. We were in contact with Gemma who was incredible every step of the way, from holding the booking while we all confirmed, advising & sorting our flights, and keeping us up to date with everything from the minute we booked until we left. Even checking how the trip was once it was over.
I would highly recommend Amanzi travel to anyone. An incredible friendly company who are always willing to help and always at the end of the phone or a quick email away. A world of knowledge as well.
