If we didn’t have this download I really don’t think we would have had such a great time. We have booked again next year on the back of a fantastic holiday which would not have been so great without your book.
I can't come up with a single suggestion to enhance it. It's by far the best single spot travel guide I've seen, anywhere, and I'm 44 and been around the block. I'd say it's essential and almost a necessity.
You have no idea how much you have helped me – Thailand is my dream holiday and I just cannot wait to go but was always apprehensive but you have taken all those fears away and I am eternally grateful.
