Mr R, Haxby – Nerja 2017

Mrs C, Haxby – New York 2017

We had a great time in New York, we would definitely recommend it.

Mr M, Haxby – Puerto Banus 2016

We had a really lovely time, everything went well. The Gala Dinner on New Year’s Eve was really nice.

Mrs P Earswick, York – Iceland December 2016

Many thanks for sorting our our to Iceland, you always do us proud.

The holiday was very good and the Fosshotel Raudara in Reykjavik were very good to us. The hotel was in an excellent position close to shops and good restaurants.

The included excursions were also excellent and we were pleased that you had pre-booked them for us as it was just so easy. The transport for these was very punctual – when they say 8.00 they mean 8.00!

The Icelandic people were all lovely and lathough alcohol in Iceland is very expensive, restaurants always put lots of lovely ice cold water on the table and it is not a problem if you don’t order alcohol, they will keep topping up their lovely water!

Mr J Haxby, York – Tenerife 2016

We had a really good holiday with great accommodation and food.

Mr C Haxby, York – Rome 2016

We had a great honeymoon in Rome! Thank you for all your help organising this.

Mr C Haxby, York – Iceland 2016

Thanks very much for organising the holiday – the logistics worked really well. We had an exciting flight back as the airport was nearly closed because of a snow storm!!

Iceland is a beautiful place and we would certainly go back again.

Mr E Haxby, York – Lanzarote 2016

Gillian and I would like to thank you for arranging our holiday and making it a memorable time. We enjoyed it very much and thanks to you, everything went smoothly. The accommodation at Galeon Playa was brilliant and all the staff there were very helpful. We look forward to booking again with you soon.

Mr and Mrs M, Strensall – Prague 2016

Brilliant! We would definitely go back, it was very good value for money.

Mrs S, Haxby – Prague 2016

On a whole it was a very good holiday. I will book again!

Mr & Mrs B, York – Mauritius 2016 

We had a wonderful holiday and would like to say thank you for arranging the nice surprise in the hotel for us!

Mr & Mrs B, Strensall – Krakow 2016

The trip was great from the start, the pick up was brilliant and was on time. The hotel was in a lovely location close to the old town and had everything we needed.

Mr & Mrs H, Haxby – Venice 2016

Hello David and all at Conexo travel.

We have returned back from Venice recently having had the
Most amazing time. We loved Venice and we would like to thank you for all the planning you did in this holiday .

I’m sure we shall return.
I posted some pictures on Facebook and got some great responses from all who viewed them.
I gave you a mention .

Thank you once again for booking for us the perfect break for our
Silver wedding Anniversary.

Mrs L, Malton North Yorkshire – October 2016 London Theatre Break

Just thought I’d let you know that Amba Hotel at Charing Cross station was really good. They were great with my 80 year old mother in law – even put a bottle of Champagne and chocolates in her room! We’d recommend it.

And Jersey boys was actually much better than I expected!

Mrs L, York – September 2016 Bulgaria


 thanks for the e-mails is was a nice touch.

Sorry it’s taken so long to reply but as you can guess I had quite a lot of work to come back to.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the Selena Hotel, I would go back tomorrow.

Modern ,clean, lovely terrace to sit out looking over the bay to have your breakfast, lots of choice Hot mostly Bulgarian, the usual continental, plenty of fresh fruit.

The staff very nice friendly. The only down side for us was the swimming pool, I would call it a plunge pool, it all depends what you want we like to exercise in the pool every morning so we missed the big pool.

The new town for me was a bit Blackpool but the old town was very picturesque very nice,

The only thing I would say it is quite difficult to walk you need flat shoes as it is all cobbles and they are uneven.

Food and drink very reasonable you can have a , starter main and wine £18.00, or you can go to lots of lovely palaces overlooking the rocks & sea for a really nice

three course meal with wine & two small beers the most we paid was 58 levs  = about £25.00 to £30.00 pounds.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks again for all your help, look forward to see you for our next holiday.

Mr C, Strensall, York – 2016 Australia

Thank you for your email. I had a great holiday in Australia, and arrived home on Saturday evening.

The hotel (‘Pensione’) you booked for me in Melbourne was fine and very well positioned in the city. Since January trams in the central area of the city have been free to use, so that visitors are not compelled to buy and load a card in order to use public transport.

The ‘Red Centre’ was green–the result of ten times as much rain this year compared with last. Tasmania is very beautiful.

Thank you for recommending Etihad. The new Airbus A380 is used between Abu Dhabi and Australia, and is very comfortable for the long flights. All flights went like clockwork until the last leg of the journey home. We were advised of a change of Gate, and at a time when we should have been boarding we were told to revert to the original gate–a whole planeload surging up the airport to a gate where there was no plane . . . Evdentually they found one, and we took off an hour and forty minutes late. As it happens I had booked my train back to York allowing time for delays at immigration and baggage, and caught the planned train with less than five minutes to spare.

Mr & Mrs H, Haxby, York – 2015 Amsterdam

We had an excellent holiday in Amsterdam last week, and I would like to pass on how much we appreciate the help of David in Haxby and his colleagues. He knows exactly what we are looking for when we go on holiday, and found us a good hotel just 2 minutes away from the Van Gogh museum and 5 minutes away from the Rijksmuseum. He also found us good flights at the times that we wanted. He took the time to discuss many aspects of our trip to Amsterdam with us, and this is typical of the service that we have received from David since we moved to Haxby five years ago. We hope to book many more holidays in the future with his help as we find him really knowledgeable and helpful.

Mr & Mrs N, Haxby, York – 2015 Stoupa

Ref’ recent holiday in Stoupa Greece

We were in Stoupa 3rd to 10th May, the first week of the holiday season.  We enjoyed the tranquillity and clean, ready for the season, welcoming appearance of the resort.

We had daylong sunshine with temperatures in the 80’s.  The sea was warm enough for morning and afternoon swimming.  The tavernas were all generously disposed to tourists

and it was easy to have an excellent evening meal for two with wine, for between 20 and 30 euros (£15 to £22+)

We were in Maini apartments with its beautiful gardens and well appointed accommodation and we would recommend this for its comfort and central position – this was our second visit to Maini and we will look forward to a May visit in future.  Stoupa is renowned for its spectacular sunsets.

We hope that this positive feedback will be useful.

Mr and Mrs S – Honeymoon in the Maldives May 2014

Had a really awesome time on our honeymoon. We were in a bungalow on the beach. It was just what we needed!

Mr and Mrs C – 2013 Nice

It was a really wonderful holiday. We had a marvelous week, the weather was great and the service at the hotel was fantastic. One of the best holidays we’ve ever had and we will definitely book again!

Mrs M, Strensall – September 2013 Cyprus
We absolutely loved our holiday at The Elysium Hotel in Paphos and it was one of the best holidays we have had for a very long time, thank you for arranging it for us.
Mr B, York – 2013 Thailand
Brilliant holiday in Thailand, the hotels were superb the travel arrangements exellent, thanks for arranging it for us I’ll pass your name on to anyone who is looking for a good travel agent.

Mrs R, London – 2013 Hawaii

Just back from Hawaii and wanted to say thank you for the arrangements everything was perfect for us.  We can recommend all the hotels if you are doing this for anyone else.  All great locations with good facilities.

A dream come true for me so thank you for helping make it all run so smoothly.

Mr & Mrs G, York – 2012 Australia

Just a quick email to say thank you for organising our trip to OZ. We had a fabulous time and I promised you some feedback. We couldn’t fault the flights at all, only 1 wasn’t on time and that was the connection from Los Angeles to San Francisco (which was only 1 hour delay). We even had a business class flight from Sydney to Ayers Rock which was a nice surprise. All the hotels and apartments were good, I would certainly recommend the Sydney apartments we chose which were really well equipped, new and in a good location. – (Meriton Campbell St, Sydney) Meriton have quite a few locations in Sydney too. Peppers Beach Club in Palm Cove was lovely and the apartment was huge! The organisation of the trip was brilliant every connection and hotel were expecting us and we had no problems at all. So a massive Thank You from both of us and we will certainly be recommending your services in the future, we may even be back for another long haul trip ( when we’ve saved up).

Mr M, York – 2012 Switzerland

Thank you for arranging our flights, together with amazingly good deal on the hotel bookings. Everything went smoothly and we will certainly use your Company again.
Thank you.

Mr & Mrs B, York – 2012 Norway

Somewhat belatedly, sorry, I’m writing to say a big thank you to you for all the help and good advice which you gave me in order to ensure Sue’s 50th birthday holiday in Norway which was such a wonderful success.
As you already know, everything was absolutely perfect and we both had an amazing holiday, enjoying all of our chosen activites, the fantastic Igloo Hotel in Alta and seeing the Northern Lights on three separate evenings. It simply couldn’t have been better.
As always, your expertise, help and advice in planning our holiday was a major factor in its success so many, many thanks yet again David. We always really appreciate your personal service and great attention to detail. We never fail to have a brilliant holiday through Conexo or to recommend you to our friends.
With warm wishes.

Mr G, Haxby, York – 2011 Gran Canaria

Sorry it’s taken me a while to get round to this but I just wanted to feed back that we had a fantastic holiday in Gran Canaria.

Mr & Mrs R, York – 2011 New Zealand

We have arrived back in Blighty after a wonderful trip.  Thank you for organising everything for us. We will be in you shop again soon to sort out some flights to Belgium for a family reunion occasion and also for a summer holiday.

Miss W – 2011 Nile Cruise

I just wanted to say what a fantastic holiday we had on the Alyssa.  What a fantastic ship and the staff were all delightful and very helpful and attentive.  Our tour guide was Mohammed and he was so knowledgeable and very approachable to ask questions.
We started with three days in Cairo and stayed at the Mercure Sphinx at Giza, which again was a wonderful hotel.  We booked our tours and had a wonderful guide called Hala who made the whole of the tours so interesting.
I would recommend booking through Conexo and both the Mercure Hotel at Giza and the Alyssa.
Thank you very much for arranging such a memorable holiday for us.

Mr O – 2010 Maldives

Just a quick line to say thanks for all your help on this – we had a fantastic holiday (even though the weather was not very good the first week) as you might have expected everything was just perfect, connections & no hassles with needing to produce a marriage certificate !!
Thanks again for all your help.

Mr & Mrs C – 2010 New York, Las Vegas

A quick thank you for arranging our honeymoon – everything went to plan even with all the snow – picture perfect wedding day.
All the flights and hotels were spot on and we really enjoyed the whole of the trip.
We will be recommending you to our family and friends and will no doubt see you ourselves once we have recovered financially!!!!!!!!
Again, many thanks.

Mr L, – 2010 Nile Cruise and Stay

I realised that I have been back from Egypt for a while, and never thanked you for your efforts sorting me out a holiday.
I found the culture a bit challenging with the agressive selling techniques, and I should have learned some appropriate Egyptian Arabic phrases to discourage the locals.
The Stephanie was a nice vessel. The cabin was good, with aircon that would easily cool the cabin to below comfortable levels. The windows with reflective glass make it even more comfortable. The food was great with more than adequate choice for anyone, (although there was a bit of an issue over milk for some people. I dont drink milk these days so it was no issue for me. I guess in a hot country that milk is just something they dont really do). The Guides (George and Yusef) on the cruise from Orbital were excellent ! I am interested in the ancient monuments and they were able to answer any questions.
An optional visit to a Nubian farm provided one of my favourite unexpected experiences, with Nubian style coffee (with cardamon cloves and ginger) in very relaxed surroundings of the west bank at Aswan.
Cairo was a bit sad, and I appreciate your judgment encouraging me to not stay for too long, Luxor is much nicer.
I really liked the Sofitel hotel at Karnak, and would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in Luxor.
Altogether a very memorable experience and very good of you to assemble it for me at such short notice,

Mr S, Woking – 2010 Mexico

‘Just to say thousand thank you for your great recommendation at playa De carman in Mexico, we had wonderful time, just came yesterday. we were lucky as we avoided all air disruption. I will contact you in 3 weeks for my next holiday.

Mr & Mrs B, York – 2010 Montreal

‘Just to let you know the trip over theRockies was even better than we could have hoped. We’re in Quebec now and leaving for Niagara tomorrow. All flights, bookings have been perfect!’

Mr & Mrs T, York – 2010 Alaskan Cruise

‘Last day of our cruise today. It’s been a superb, we’ve had fabulous weather so Glacier Bay was stunningly beautiful. We’ve got lots planned when we get back to Vancouver– don’t want to come home!’

Miss H – 2009 Cancun, Mexico

Just a little note to let you know we had a wonderful honeymoon in Cancun. Everthing exceeding our expectations, so a big thank you for sorting things out for us! I am thinking of going back next year with the whole family so hopefully your can get a good deal for us.

Mr & Mrs O, York – 2009 Wedding in Las Vegas and Orlando

‘Neil and I would like to say thank you for arranging a wonderful holiday for us, we had a great time in Las Vegas and Orlando.
The wedding was perfect. The Chapel, the grounds and all the staff were lovely – we would definitely recommend! We couldn’t ask for anything better. Thank you for the card – it was a lovely surprise!
We will no doubt be back in touch in the future to arrange our next holiday!’

Mr & Mrs D, Surrey – 2009 Cancun, Mexico

Again, many thanks.’

Miss A, York – 2009 Phapos

‘Just to let you know we had a fantastic week in Paphos. The hotel was superb and we would happily recommend it to anyone!’

Mr & Mrs C, Birmingham – 2009 Nile Cruise

‘Just a short note to thank you for all your input leading up to our Nile cruise. It exceeded our expectations and was one of the best holidays my wife and I have had together. I think I must have phoned you at least once a day on the run up to it with some little niggle or other but you were always happy to put our minds at rest!! Our guide ‘hassan’ was very enthusiastic about his country and his enthusiasm was contagious!! A very knowledgeable man who was more than a tour guide but also a good shepherd and a very genuine person. He gave the holiday an extra dimension which made the early starts a joy and not a chore! If you could pass our regards to him if possible too we’d appreciate it. Anyway David what else can I say but thank you thank you thank you!!
Love and best wishes’

Mr & Mrs M, Worecester – 2009 Nile Cruise

‘My wife and I have just returned home from our Nile Cruise onboard LTI Alyessa and just wanted to thank you for all the arrangements.
We had a splendid holiday and are happy to concur with your previous clients that the boat is one of the better vessels on the river. Thank you once again for your services.
With kind regards’

Mr C, Stockport – 2008 Nile Cruise

‘I’m back safely from my trip down the Nile and thought I would just drop a line of feedback for you.
Thank you for the recommendation for the Domina Prestige – this was definitely an above average boat on the river; not the most luxurious, but plenty good enough for most people.
The whole itinerary was extremely well organised, with everything going like clockwork, and I think Libra and their local representatives deserve credit for this.  The guide allocated to my group (Reda) was extremely knowledgeable, informative and humorous but delivered in a relaxed style that allowed us time to absorb what we were seeing and hearing.
Thanks again.’

Mr & Mrs F, York – 2008 Paleokastrista, Corfu

‘We had such a fantastic time in Paleokatristca, Corfu, the accommodation was brilliant and in a dream location.
Many thanks to you David and your team for spending time listening to our requirements, and making our honeymoon perfect. The service was second to none and very personal.
Thank you again’

Miss L, York – 2008 Nile Cruise

‘This holiday was the best holiday that I have ever been on! The boat was beautiful and very clean and staff were extremely helpful and friendly! The on-board entertainment was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed the fancy dress night, despite previous apprehension. The excursions were extremely interesting thanks to our informative and passionate tour leader and guide Ayman. You will be very lucky to be part of Ayman’s group (our group was called Ramses). He really brings the ancient culture and history to life while making you appreciate the modern developments in Egyptian society. My family and I availed of the extra trips to Cairo and Abu Simbel, these are awe inspiring places and I highly recommend a visit! We were on holiday from the 30th of June until the 8th of July 2008. We went outside of peak season, as most people go in the winter when it is slightly cooler. My family and I are not sun worshipers and do not generally like the heat, however, on this trip the heat did not bother us at all as we were out early in the morning and in the evening and so, for the most part, avoided the heat of the mid-day sun. Looking back on the trip I am amazed at how much we got done in just one week! The temples and tombs were fascinating and each was unique and had its own story. It would be extremely difficult to become bored with a trip like this! I would go again in the morning and do it all over again if I could! I didn’t want to leave! I will certainly be back on the MS Da Vinci and can only hope that when I return Ayman will be there once more! It was a truly great experience and one that I shall never forget.’

Mr & Mrs K, Surrey – 2007 Nile Cruise

Thank you very much for your welcome home letter received yesterday. Michael and I had a brilliant holiday on the Domina Prestige but are really looking forward to the weekend to catch up on some sleep. It was a holiday not to be missed – the only thing we missed out on was sleep being up so early in the morning but definitely needed as the temperatures were at 42 and 44o most afternoons. The balloon trip over the Valley of the Kings on Monday morning was a wonderful ending to a superb holiday.
Thanks again and best wishes’

Mr & Mrs M, Surrey – 2007 Nile Cruise

‘We cruised on the “Domina Prestige” from 4 to 11 February.  It seems years away now as we have had other holidays since that time.
However I wanted to let you know how much Ann and I appreciated your Welcome Home letter.  I imagine reaction to these letters is fairly low as people only write to complain.  We are the exception!
All the arrangements you made for us were as described and went very smoothly.  We were particularly impressed that a Libra courier was on hand to help us depart through the maze of Luxor Airport.  Your personal enthusiasm for a “Domina Prestige” cruise was fully justified.  The facilities, service and food were all excellent.  The professionalism and humour of the guides made the many excursions most enjoyable.
Please feel free to use any of the previous paragraph in your publicity if you wish.’

Mrs B, Chichester – 2007 Nile Cruise

‘I just wanted you to know that my daughter and I had the most wonderful time in Egypt o the MS Davinci…it really was a most memorable holiday  so much so that we both decided we want to go back again!!….  (I even got offered one thousand camels for my daughter!!!!  LOL). What’s the availability like for the month of July on the MS Davinci?!! (even though its one of the hottest months!

Mrs K, Nottingham – 2007 USA

 ‘Just thought I’d let you know that we’re now back from the USA and more or less over the jet lag! We had a great time and everything went really well, despite the fires in the region. Fortunately we missed the worst time as it was when we were in Palm Springs. Talking of which, we had a good time there and the Wyndham was very good – we had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the pool. We weren’t woken by the sun first thing but it was there all afternoon. So thank you very much for all your help.
I did get a postcard for you but forget to take the address & didn’t think to look on the hotel voucher … well I was on holiday & my brain wasn’t in gear! Nevertheless I shall post it to you later.’

Mrs L, Newton Aycliffe – 2007 Nile Cruise

‘Myself & husband & some friends of ours have recently returned from a Nile Cruise, booked through you as a last minute holiday (just the week before departure). I would just like to thank you, on behalf of us all, for the prompt service we receive from you & the no hassle booking arrangements etc. that we got from your company. We had a lovely time (despite the ‘gippy’ tummies!) & thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Absolutely awesome!!
Many thanks for your service.’

Mr C, Belfast – 2007 Italy

‘Just to let you know the holiday was great.
Hotel locations couldn’t have been better and the Venice hotel was sheer luxury.
For your information the ferries on Lake Garda stop operating at the end of October but as we decided to hire a car this was not a problem.
Many thanks for your help.’
