Wix Squared Testimonials - Remote lands of Myanmar

Remote lands of Myanmar
“Alex has an encyclopedic knowledge of Asia, which meant that our trip to Myanmar was not only meticulously planned and executed but included some wonderful places that others might have missed – and was devoid of the ghastly tourist traps that others might not!”

Honeymoon to Bali and Lombok, Indonesia
“An unforgettable experience, made even more special by Wix Squared’s incredible organisation. There was nothing they hadn’t thought of. We will remember it forever.”

Wix Squared Testimonial - Return holiday to India

Return holiday to India
“I openly admit that what we wanted out of our trip to India, which was not our first, was pretty demanding. It required an agent who was on our wavelength and had the right team on the ground to make it happen. Our hopes and expectations were exceeded.”

Wix Squared Testimonials - Romantic break in the Maldives

Romantic break in the Maldives
“I now completely understand why so many couples visit the Maldives on their honeymoon, it is utterly romantic and the closest thing to paradise! There is such a vast choice of islands that Wix Squared’s expertise was essential and they suggested the perfect get away island for us.

Wix Squared Testimonial - Long weekend in Dubai and Oman

A long weekend in Dubai and Oman
“We had the most amazing short break, with a couple of days in the centre of Dubai followed by an adventure in the remote Musandam Peninsula of Oman. Our transport methods varied from an extravagant Bentley to reach the Burj Khalifa to a paraglide into Zighy Bay – both executed perfectly and the rest of the trip was no different.”

Wix Squared Testimonial - Honeymoon to Indonesia

A Honeymoon to Indonesia
“An exceptional trip, quite literally the perfect honeymoon, each island and each hotel differed yet complimented one another beautifully, Como Shambhala, Amanjiwo and Nihiwatu, we honestly could not have asked for more, from start to finish it was brilliantly organised, with plenty of little surprises and unusual activities along the way, I couldn’t recommend Alex more highly.”

Wix Squared Testimonial - Trekking in the foothills of the Himalaya

Trekking in the foothills of the Himalaya
“The obvious bits, like the breath taking scenery, making sure it was the right time of year for the climate, the travel connections, the pacing of the activities, the seemingly effortless organisation were all spot on…but it was the little details that left a longer lasting impression, like the exquisite breakfast picnic served to us after a dawn climb in the company of goats, pheasants and monkeys to a viewpoint under the biggest mountains in the world…like the deliciously refreshing rhododendron juice given us on our walks between villages…like the guide who played his guitar and sung his own songs under a sky of a million stars and cooked a well-earned barbecue. Details make for special memories, and this was a trip of a life time. Thank you for all you organised… truly memorable.”

Wix Squared Testimonial - 1 year anniversary to Sri Lanka

1 year anniversary to Sri Lanka
“We travelled to Sri Lanka to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and, dare I say it, but I think the trip was even better than our honeymoon!! Alex offered excellent advice on where to go and what see to make the most of our trip and to keep both of us interested and happy. The hotels were absolutely stunning, the people are incredibly welcoming and happy and the service was exceptionally high. Alex had told the hotels in advance that it was our anniversary and at every hotel there was a little surprise waiting for us in our room which made it even more special. A special mention to our guide, Ananda, who was incredibly knowledgeable and managed to read us as a couple straight away, giving my husband the brief history and, as he wandered off amongst the ruins, giving me a lot more detail.”

Wix Squared Testimonial - Exploring Bhutan

Exploring Bhutan
“Bhutan was incredibly interesting and the landscape was breathtaking. The hotels recommended were all fabulous and the food was delicious. This little known country is a wonderful, peaceful place to visit, where they deem traffic lights too unfriendly! Tourist tax is high and you have to take a local guide so I would highly recommend booking through a tour operator like Wix Squared who has an excellent team on the ground. I certainly feel lucky to have been able to visit Bhutan under Wix Squared’s guidance and to experience the Bhutanese culture and tradition.”

Wix Squared - Holiday to Rajasthan

Holiday to Rajasthan (India)
“Alex is the ultimate travel consultant, with her wealth of knowledge and experience in travel, she has a sharp eye for detail especially when recommending only the very best hotels.  Alex’s itineraries have always suited our needs perfectly and she’s particularly good at recommending ‘off the beaten track’ unique experiences.”

Visiting the Cultural Triangle, tea plantations, Galle Fort (Sri Lanka) and the Maldives
“It was absolutely a holiday I will never forget. Everything went smoothly and according to plan thanks to Alex’s meticulous planning and organisational skills and we knew that, if needed, she was only a phone call away should anything go wrong. I cannot recommend Wix Squared enough. Thank you.”

Honeymoon to Indonesia

Honeymoon to north Bali, Mt Ijen and Lombok, Indonesia
“The trip was fantastic – couldn’t have been better, absolutely wonderful place, beautiful and very private – fantastic food. Our guide was very ‘local’ and not too tourist savvy which was really nice as you felt he was giving you more honest and realistic answers to questions and he was deeply passionate/proud about his country.”

A whistle-stop tour of India
“I have visited India twice, both were very different experiences; the first as a backpacker whereby we “winged it” to say the least and the second was during a trip organised by Alex. Her organisational skills and planning was second to none as we wished to visit several places in a relatively short amount of time with numerous internal flights and varied guides… all of which went according to plan. When travelling to somewhere like India I have come to learn that a good guide is essential if you really want to get to know the country and Alex’s contacts on the ground were all excellent, incredibly knowledgeable and spoke fantastic English. It is truly a fascinating country that captured my heart.”

Honeymoon to Sri Lanka and the Maldives

Honeymoon to Sri Lanka and the Maldives
“Alex was amazing and organised the perfect honeymoon. A wonderful blend of culture and relaxation spread between the hills of Sri Lanka and the beaches of the Maldives. Everything was immaculately planned down to the last detail, and there were lots of wonderful added touches that surprised us at each venue. Over and above what you would expect, even for a top-class travel company. It really was the most wonderful holiday and I would recommend them in a heartbeat for anything.”

Holiday to Bangkok and Thailand’s beaches

Holiday to Bangkok and Thailand’s beaches
“If you want an experience out of the ordinary and off the charts, get Wix Squared involved! No, seriously we can all jump on a plane to Thailand, but if you want to cycle through the backstreets of Bangkok with your own private guide, visit the buzzing night markets, wake up to the lime karst islands surrounding Koh Yao Noi or just hole up in an incredible villa on Koh Kood ……..then do it in style, experience inside looking out from people who have obviously done it themselves and want to share it all, and take great pleasure in the planning and the detail of each holiday moment.”

“In short – we had a great trip. Wonderful weather all week; very nice and helpful driver; lovely hotels in both Fes and Chefchaouen; very much enjoyed both cities and our journeys in between and around. And what a wonderful surprise for Zoe! She kept saying best birthday ever, which might not sound much of an accolade in the circumstances, but both kids were wildly excited.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for organising a perfect trip for James and the boys. They loved every second of being in Delhi and that was largely down to the excellent guide and driver you arranged for us.”

Holiday to Bangkok and Thailand’s beaches

Highlights of Sri Lanka
“Alexandra planned and organised a fantastic 10 day trip to Sri Lanka for me and my husband. Her knowledge of the country, the best places to stay and the things to see was excellent and we were really impressed by the quality of the places we stayed and the sights we visited. We’d go back to her every time we ever want to plan another similar trip in Asia and have recommended her to our friends.”

luxury Honeymoon to Indonesia

Honeymoon heaven in Indonesia
“I went to Alex for advice planning our honeymoon in Asia (on recommendation from my parents who she had previously helped plan an epic trip in Kerala). She offered very sensible advice on a couple of my ideas (very glad of this now!) without being pushy. She interpreted our priorities and together we came up with a plan which integrated beautiful beaches, incredible food, small hotels, epic diving and a little adventure. The trip was totally wonderful from start to finish and transition between the three very different places was seamless due to careful planning. Her in depth knowledge of the country and years of experience were evident every step of the way and we couldn’t recommend her more highly.”

Morocco

An Adventure in southern Morocco
“Thank you very much for helping us organise a fantastic 10 day trip to Morocco; the itinerary included all the places that we hoped to visit and the additional information that you included was extremely useful. The hotels/kasbah’s that Wix Squared reserved for us were charming and we particularly liked Jardin de Skoura and Kashab Azul which were both delightful. I do not think that we would have been able to arrange such a good trip by ourselves and are very grateful for all that you did. Wix Squared provided an excellent point of contact, top quality service and was incredibly sweet to remember our wedding anniversary! Thank you very much – I have not stopped looking at other destinations on your website since returning ……”

Morocco

The Moroccan mountains, desert & Marrakech
“Our experience with Wix Squared was, from start to finish, exceptional. Our wishlist was a tall order given our short notice, timeframe and hotel availability during the high season. Alex put together an impressive itinerary, catered perfectly for our personalities and preferences. She was able to accommodate every destination we hoped for, in beautiful hotels within our budget. Every detail was accounted for; meals, activities, lovely drivers, and knowledgeable guides. Alex was patient with all of our questions and provided great recommendations for a local, authentic and unforgettable experience. I will be recommending Alex and her team to friends and family. I couldn’t speak more highly of of Wix Squared. 5 STARS – all round!”

A journey by boat from Thailand to Laos
“Alex had planned each excursion and hotel with intricate detail. Is there anything more glorious than waking up, looking out over your balcony and seeing elephants roaming around below? She made our trip to Thailand an unforgettable experience which was followed by a trip along the Mekong in a beautiful private boat. Watching buffalo at the waters edge was the perfect way of travelling in to Laos which was the most wonderful, friendly and welcoming country.”

Morocco

Mother & daughter bonding in Morocco
“A last minute decision to travel to Morocco with my 17yr old daughter was only made possible thanks to Wix Squared. Besides knowing we wanted to go to the Atlas Mountains and Marrakech, we had no idea on the specifics or logistics required. She put together a wonderful itinerary including the most ideal lodging, a driver with whom it was a delight and felt safe to travel, unusual recommendations for restaurants and shopping, references to local non-profits for volunteer work, and destinations that were not on our radar. It was a perfect and memorable experience!”


Japan

Birthday celebrations in Japan
“You have been amazing. The level of service and detail you provided along the way has been fantastic. We have been nothing short of seriously impressed. It was so incredible and we can’t thank you enough for the perfect itinerary, advice and service. A holiday of a lifetime that we will never forget. We couldn’t have had more of a special time and we absolutely loved every minute of it. Coming from a design background my eyes were literally out on stalks – Japan is one of the most fascinating countries I have ever been too. I can’t thank you enough for all the extra details for my birthday too – utterly spoiling in every way!”

Honeymoon to Six Senses Laamu, Maldives
Thank you very much for organising such an amazing honeymoon. We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I certainly returned more relaxed than I have been in years. We thought that the setup of the resort, from the amazing room to the incredibly welcoming and friendly staff was perfect for what we were after. The couples massage was amazing. One of the highlights was the Maldivian cooking course which we would thoroughly recommend to any future clients . Having the house reef so close was also a bonus and the selection of sea life on offer was truly amazing. Overall we could not have been happier.”

Morocco

Active Adventures in Morocco
Thank you so much for organizing the most fantastic week, it was such a treat and incredible to have everything organized for us to make it so fun and easy. If I’m honest Morocco exceeded all expectations with so many different aspects to explore. Having thought I would find the medina too hectic, it was less so than I had imagined and I never felt unsafe. It is one of those places I will never forget, the contrast from the streets outside to the calm and luxury in the riad is incredible. All in all it was a perfect holiday with a great mix of everything and I can’t thank you enough. It was superbly organised from start to finish and allowed us to see so much without any stress. The little extras from the app, tipping guide and recommendations were fantastic. All of the activities organised were fun and enjoyable. I feel like I have been away for weeks and yet at the same time came back feeling very relaxed. Not only will I use you again but I doubt I will go anywhere else for a special holiday.”

Cambodia

Phnom Penh and Siem Reap (Cambodia)
Our room had been upgraded and included a vast bath of plunge pool proportions! Phnom Penh is an extrordinary city and so busy. I just loved the manic traffic particularly the bikes and scooters weaving around with whole families or businesses on board! Our adventure with the pedlos was such fun and the guide was so attentive and amusing. Our guide in Siem Reap was first class and had a wealth of knowledge of the various temples. What a fabulous hotel here and well chosen. The Cambodia Circus was just fantastic and so was the day on the river. Magical! Then the journey to the countryside finishing with dinner in such a lovely setting with musicians playing for us. Our final morning tuk tuk breakfast was a lovely surprise! All of this was beyond our expectations so thank you so much. Alex there is much more to say but we have had a simply wonderful, unforgettable time in Cambodia and are so grateful to you for making it happen. Your personal guided tour is such a great way to see these far away places.”

Highlights of Honshu, Japan
“Y
ou organised an impeccable tour for us. No single thing went wrong at any stage…and there were many stages. The hotel staff, the drivers, the restaurants, the guides along the way all greeted us as long lost friends. None with blank amazement! All were well briefed. And all was flawless. Your choice of hotels and of places to visit and, all importantly, the timings between travels, the pace of things, could not have been better. We may be bankrupt but we are also hugely grateful. And how how right you were to bully me to stick with your architectural specialist. He could not have been a more intelligent or affable guide. And Kyoto was magical as a result.”

Oman

Honeymoon to Oman
“We are on our way back now from the most magical and amazing holiday imaginable. Thank you so so much for all you organised for us – you went above and beyond to arrange the small things like the champagne in our room, cake etc etc. It was thoroughly spoiling. We can’t thank you enough and recommend you more to anyone. It was the week we were looking forward to and it didn’t disappoint! The Alila was so grand and spoiling and the service and small little perks everywhere at the Shangri-La were like no other.”

 

Maldives

Honeymoon to Shangri-La, Maldives
We were considering the Maldives for our honeymoon, but were aware some of the top 5* resorts are astronomically expensive and probably over our budget; but the ultimate package Alex was able to negotiate with the hotel of our choice, was too good to refuse. She negotiated internal flights, extra free massages (and further SPA discounts) for my wife and I, that we simply couldn’t say no to such a good deal of such a paradisiacal resort. She also managed to get flights much cheaper that I could (and I usually back myself and getting good deals)! So happy with went with Wix Squared and would highly recommend Alex and her business to anyone planning a special holiday!!”

unique travel events

Oman in Luxury, Oman
“Dear Alex, We are looking back to a magnificent trip. We had a great time. The trip was very well planned. Rachid is a very good host, guide and driver. We felt safe, learned a lot about the country and admired the Omani people through what we’ve learned during our trip. The choice of the hotels was excellent. It is remarkable, in times of digital communication via web and other means, that the 15 minute phone call we had, led to a perfect trip. It shows once again that senses are indispensable. You listen and capture the desires of your customer. All that combined with your prompt and swift communications makes you very professional.

Morocco

Family time in Morocco
“Alex planned the most perfect and magical trip to Morocco for us and our families. She really listened to what was important to us and we left feeling we had the exact right amount of time in each place as well as a true taste of Morocco. Each day we awoke to a different experience that both delighted and astounded. The side-car adventure delighted both us and our children. She seems to stay on top of new activities and adventures so that her clients get the best of all options. The magical birthday in the desert complete with rose petals and candles covering our table and a cake and serenade for our children was their most perfect party to date. And she arranged it all last minute! We applaud each choice she made and thank her for graciously answering our almost daily texts with questions while we were on our trip. All of our guides spoke of her reputation for beautifully customizing each trip and making it far from a cookie- cutter experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND !”

 

Morocco

The Imperial Cities, Morocco
I cannot thank you and your team enough for all you did to make our vacation wonderful. I think the tone was really set by the team at Riad Farnatchi, who made us feel welcomed, supported, comfortable and happy. The riad is stunning and we loved every minute of Marrakech. Our guide Nouri was great…Youssef was also a fantastic driver! Having him with us consistently throughout the trip was great. He was fun, professional, always on time (even when we weren’t!!) and a really excellent human being. The desert camp was nice, also great staff. Would recommend that. We didn’t ride camels but we enjoyed relaxing in the sun. The hike in the mountains was really excellent…we really enjoyed Fez..the food tour though was fantastic. Khalid was super knowledgeable and interesting, and took us to some super delicious and fun places. Overall, this was a truly wonderful trip. We weren’t sure what to expect from Morocco but we were easily in love with it. Thank you so much for everything!!”

personalised honeymoon, holiday and experiences in jordan

Family Holiday to Jordan
We’ve made it back home safe and sound! Thank you so much for all that you did to make our holiday so fun-filled and memorable. We absolutely adored Jordan and you pulled together a really fantastic itinerary. Highlights included the beautiful tented accommodation we stayed in in the Wadi Rum – brilliant staff, delicious food and a fabulous atmosphere. The walk there was stunning, too. Both Petra and the hike through Dana National Park blew our minds and the lunch at Dana was so scenic and well organised. Ours rooms at Kempinski were also excellent and you did so well not only getting Logie a separate room but also situating us next to one of the restaurants so we could eat out without getting a babysitter. It was such a lovely way to end an amazing holiday. It really was the most wonderful trip and we’re so grateful to you for pulling it all together so speedily and so efficiently. Thank you again.

Japan

Return visit to Japan
The trip did all that we wanted it to do – update our understanding of modern Japan and get us out of business mode and into the wider country.  The itinerary worked very well, covering a good range of places with enjoyable journeys in between.  Your advice on timing meant that we had the best of the autumn colours wherever we went. The guided tours were just right for us – informed and informative. Yuki’s joke about the diet needed for a long life will be much repeated and my origami of Fuji san is on my bookshelves. Keikko’s family farming background was of real interest to us, discussing the economics and status of providers. The trains, as we expected, were perfect. The peace of two full days in Tomonoura was perfect at the half way stage. We also had sunshine on the drive home so nothing spoiled a very splendid trip. Gold Star overall and many thanks.”

Sri Lanka

Honeymoon to Sri Lanka and the Maldives
“Wow! what a honeymoon it was. We’re just starting to wake up from what was a dreamy holiday and much needed break after our wedding. Just this morning Lucy turned to me and said, ‘Was it all a dream, did we get married and is our honeymoon over?’ (enter sad face emoji). A huge thank you from us for your hard work, endless patience and ad hoc support dating back to our original conversations, way back when. Your professionalism in putting our needs first was always felt and we were incredibly impressed by your ongoing effort and ability to shape the holiday around us, which made it feel like an incredibly personal experience all-round. You made our honeymoon a very, very special time for both of us and on reflection, it really was the perfect getaway after the wedding and we both feel relaxed, refreshed and very happily married. Another huge thank you for everything. Hopefully we’ll be booking another family holiday to Sri Lanka or the Maldives in the near future.”

We had the most fantastic time in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, thank you so much for all of your organisation it was absolutely seamless and made for such an enjoyable trip!! We really couldn’t fault a thing and the level of service was exceptional.

Morocco

Family holiday to Morocco
I wanted it to be an introduction to Africa for the kids, as they have heard some many travel stories from me and it was really perfect. They loved their trip and it was an eye opener in many ways, exactly like I wanted it to be. We all LOVED the cooking experience and I will never thank you enough for suggesting this. Our dada was great and it was just really fun. Overall, you have organized a TRULY wonderful trip for me and my kids and I will be forever grateful! I will certainly go back to Morocco with my husband in the coming year and will contact you to organize the trip for sure.
