I had already wire transferred a large sum of money, before reading this reviews, which immediately made me uncomfortable… we decided to go with this fellows only after checking their itineraries and prices and compared them with other travel agencies, which were outstandingly lower.
I must say I asked specifically for an unforgettable honeymoon at a little bit above the average budget (THAT IS WHY I USED BTS ONLY AS A TRAVEL AGENCY and that is why I didn't stay at their place which I overlooked and thought to my self you get what you pay for), yet results of my investment couldn’t be better … all suggested hotels were “SURPRISINGLY DELIGHTFUL” not to mention that they were able to throw In two flights from Masai Mara to Arusha on the Tanzanian side, which our rear ends appreciated very much… TIP: the lack and poor condition of roads make this highly recommendable; just ask how long’s the drive from A to B by hours, not by distance.
The Driver on this side lacked some experience compared to the Kenyan one (my maaan Patrick), but just as diligent and willing, then again, Patrick worked for Big Time Safaris and Zigi a subcontracted Guide.
Our third destination was the Island of Zanzibar where even though we suffered from a flight change (airline related) that required us to leave at 4:00 AM in order to catch our plane, BTS arranged the driver to be there on time.
All this must sound like what a regular travel agency must provide… but been at a place where “HAKUNA MATATA” Is the most popular saying, really counts.
I am sorry for what other tourists experienced with BTS, from my part… I would definitely recommend this company (AS A TRAVEL AGENCY) any time, remember an african trip has many destinations and it is nice to have someone local to back you up.
