help choosing tour company or travel agent

I have read so much on-line and on this web site and am still confused as to which tour company or travel agency to choose.

I have starting planning a trip with Africa Exclusive. Anyone have any experience with them?

Also have sent inquiries to Aardvark, Africa Adventure, eyes on africa.

Want to plan a 3 week trip with another couple both in late 50's but very active. Want comfortable accomodations but don't need top of the line.

Thanks

You can see trips and companies on these indexes

Don't know about Africa Exclusive.

There is not one right company or one right trip. Every company and every local outfitter, camp, guide, ranger, driver I have used has worked well. If you use a reputable parties, all should be fine for you too. It is just a matter of budget and personal preference.

After you get your itineraries you can post them here and get more specific answers and suggestions.

We have had absolutely superb help for a trip to South Africa from Angela at Journeys of Distinction. Her email is [email protected]

She is very prompt, excellent with providing suggestions, kept our 12 day safari within the budget we planned, and has orchestrated our entire trip, not once but twice, since we had to change everything due to the expected arrival of a new grandchild. And, while we haven't gone yet, I can't think of travel agent that could be more responsive or helpful.

We had a local Africa specialist plan our trip. It was helpful talking and emailing directly. Is there one in your area?
