By FAR of the 5 G&L tour companies you guys put the others to shame.Great planning, consistent follow thru, and a very impressive thoughtfulness of your guests.
ZOOM:Professional, responsive, and personalized.
Mark: Zoom South Africa Vacation
We will be forever grateful to you guys for making the incredibly complicated seem simple and easy. The task of transporting fourteen “high standard” queens half way around the world, then entertain and wow them for two weeks was monumental, but you guys pulled it off and never looked like you were working. Wow.
David, Miami: Zoom South Africa Vacation
Bryan and Joel go out of their way to make sure that all guests have that "once-in-a-lifetime" experience and memory. The trip exceeded all expectations, even after setting very high goals. I wanted each day to be better than the day experience that was just had, and we accomplished that.
Zoom is easy to work with, and Bryan and Joel work very well together.
Sid, Miami: Zoom South Africa Vacation
Zoom Vacations® went out of their way to make sure the trip was special. The necessary details were handled which made traveling easy. But, it was the special attention to details or special events that made this trip memorable. Whether it was the dinner in the bush or the visit to the village these are what made this trip, and the experience with Zoom Vacations®, unique. The thing that impressed me the most however, and the thing I be most often goes un-noticed, is the way Zoom paid attention to the experience of each person on the trip. There were a number of times when they paid special attention to people who they felt like needed it – whether it was just checking in to make sure the person was ok or making a point to engage them in conversation or give them space as needed. I can honestly say that Zoom went out of their way to care for the travelers on all levels.
