"I would not hesitate recommending you and Frontier"

Firstly thank you so much Jeanette for your hard work. The whole holiday was perfect the hotels, timing, planning, organised trips all happened like clockwork. Not once did we have an issue, problem or disappointment.

In fact the holiday was one wow experience after another. Your choice of hotels was exceptional. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The car, a wrangler jeep was hilarious and essential and I wouldn’t have changed it for anything. The itinerary worked perfectly with a great balance between trips that you organised and free time for our own plans. I have to admit I was initially anxious about some of the longer journeys on Vancouver Island but they were ok and when we arrived at the various destinations it was well worth the effort.
I found you on the net. Your early engagement with what I wanted was what encouraged me and as our relationship deepened I became increasingly confident that I had stumbled on a gem of a business. Having now experienced the holiday of a lifetime I would not hesitate recommending you and Frontier Travel
