Hello again, Sullivan6D
How sad that people replying to a genuine enquiry feel the need to breach TA posting guidelines and get deleted!
I can only recommend Whitesands from personal experience of exceptional customer service.
In 2008 we were on an island full day tour with them when we got caught in a tropical storm, seven inches of rain in about 3 hours, roads were being washed away, and several people on the island were killed, but the whitesands' driver and their rep were simply wonderful. The flood water was washing around and rocking the people carrier we were in and the journey back to the hotel was quite scary. We arrived back at the hotel several hours late, after numerous detours due to closed/washed away roads,
When we got back to the UK, I emailed Whitesands and got a personal response from their CEO, thanking me for acknowledging the skill and care of their staff and asking me to let him know when we would be returning to Mauritius. We duly did so for last year's holiday and were thriled and delighted to find a massive bouquet of tropical flowers, and a hand written card from the CEO waiting for us in our hotel room. Now that's customer care!
No, they are not cheap, and you can certainly find cheaper operators, but for a really special event, why not pay the extra, and be assured of quality, value, service and special care for your very special event. If you want to PM me, please feel free to do so.
I wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderful future.
