Yet again an exceptional trip organised by Tammie. From our meeting in Cairo to our departure in Amman we were treated to another amazing adventure. From the amazing Farsha Cafe to Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea Tammie is an amazing host. My next adventure is already planned with Vibrant Women. Cannot rate the tours highly enough…thank you Tammie and the amazing Cheryl. 👌👌👌

Dear Kerrie, it is always a pleasure having you in our group. Even when not feeling well you still try to make the most of things. There were a few hiccups on this trip so thanks so much for your continued support and understanding. Tammie xx

10/10 recommend travelling with Vibrant Women. Our group booked a solo trip organised by Tammy. From the get go, everything was organised exceptionally well. I have done a large amount of travel through south east Asia, USA and UK and found the trip with Vibrant women one of the best experiences I have ever had. Having an agent who genuinely wants to help makes a huge difference when travelling overseas.. if you are thinking about booking a trip with Vibrant Women you will not regret it!

This was my first guided tour that I’ve been on and my first trip to Bali. It was wonderful and I plan on doing more tours with Vibrant Women Travel. Tammy is so well organised and flexible too. The standard of accommodation was exceptional and the variety of excursions/day trips were all so meaningful, interesting and educational. Did I mention fun…? Yes, it was all so fun! They really are a one stop shop for travel where they are there to organise and/or iron out any hiccups. Nothing is ever a problem that they can’t remedy. If you’re a ‘tentative’ traveller Vibrant Women Travel is the way to go. Everyone is well looked after! I look forward to the next one with bells on. 😊

l have travelled with Tammie on many retreats: Bali, Fiji, Vanuatu, Awaba, Mount Alford and Port Douglas. Each retreat is a different experience with the same amount of care taken to ensure you feel safe and well catered for. There is always the right amount of adventure, local experiences and down time. The camaraderie between the women is warm and often hilarious. Tammie's organisational skills and attention to detail are smooth and seamless, which make for a most enjoyable experience. Western Australia here I come. Cheryl
