I had often heard that famous Australian saying "No Worries Mate", and wondered where it had originated. Having just completed the wonderful Australian trip, I now know where that started. It came from people who have traveled to Australia using Touring Treasures for the itinerary and in particular using you to show them what to see and do. From start to finish we certainly had "No Worries". Both my wife Susan and I would like to really thank you for all you did in arranging such a beautiful vacation. It seems extraordinary that you did it so well in such a short time. Considering it was all done by emails and having just one phone call, it is best summed up by Susan in an email from Australia to family and friends, "We are having a great trip and cannot thank Suzy enough for all she has done". It is difficult to come up with the best for it was all good, but Kangaroo Island takes a high place. Again Susan said "I wish we could have had a couple more days here". Our tour guide Ben stands out. Seeing Koalas in the wild whilst he served us tea and wonderful eats will long linger in the memory bank. Incredible, wonderful, great, exciting, magnificent, all those words do not adequately sum up the trip. Once again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for all you did. I am already thinking of making a return visit.

"I recently returned from my first visit to Australia. As a single traveler, Suzy Mercien planned a fabulous itinerary for me including everything I wanted and more! Everything was expertly planned and executed without flaw. All I had to do was to show up! The hotels were grand; the car services were always on time and friendly; the small, exclusive tours were fantastic; and the destinations were without reproach and I couldn't have asked for more. I am already planning my next trip to Australia and wouldn't consider using a different tour company. Thanks for everything, Suzy!"

- The trip back to Boston was long but uneventful and now we are faced with below 0 weather and the threat of snow tomorrow. The lunch which you set up for us on our last day at the Vineyard was indicative of the whole trip because it could have been a sandwich lunch which would have been OK and we would not have been dissappointed but it turned out to be a 5 course special chef's tasting menu matched with 3 of their lovely wines; it was over the top! We all had a wonderful time in New Zealand and greatly appreciated your contribution; "Here's to Suzy," was an often repeated toast around the table. Please don't hesitate to use my name as an example of a more than satisfied Touringtreasures.com customer any time. Richard Morash
- Sharon and I would like to thank you for the excellent arrangements which you made for us during our visit to New Zealand. The country is absolutely beautiful and we loved the hotels, the food, the golf courses and the people. It has truly been one of our best vacations. We definitely would recommend you with any of our contacts planning a trip to New Zealand. Ed Montero
You did a fantastic job for the Morash party in NZ and we can't thank you enough for all the planning and details. The whole experience was the best and we certainly will recommend you to others going that way. And thanks for the great picture book. Charlie Eaton

"Our first Trip to Australia was wonderful; we enjoyed our stay in Melbourne and especially our stay in Cairns . The Bungalow right on the beach and the Rainforest type accommodation was out of this world. The wild life was unbelievable and we really enjoyed the animals at the Zoo. Also our stay in Sydney was wonderful. It was a once in a lifetime trip and we will never forget it... Thank you for putting this trip together for us and especially for all the personal help from Suzy Mercien-Ferol."

"We had our dream honeymoon and we owe it all to you - thank you! We were grateful to have left all of the honeymoon planning up to you as we had been so busy leading up to the wedding. We just adored the island resorts you booked - you read our minds well. No TV, no radio, just pure good old fashioned romance. You can't even begin to imagine our surprise and appreciation with our rejuvenation massage upon our arrival into Fiji . Thank you so much for a well thought out wedding gift. We loved it so much that we vowed to come back to Fiji for our 5th Wedding Anniversary! So, we'll see you then... "
