Hi Kay - Just a quick note of thanks to you for all your efforts in getting us to Christchurch and on to the Tranzalpine train journey. The complete trip was fantastic and we enjoyed every minute of it. We were lucky enough to see Greymouth in the sun on the first day and in the mist and rain on the second day. The weather in Christchurch was also kind to us and we did everything we wanted to do plus a bit more. Once again many thanks for sorting everything out for us.

Regards - Keith & Christene Norton

To Glennis - Our trip was marvelous, loved Cambodia - would recommend it for anyone; there were two over-eighties on our trip and we were looked after magnificently. The people from Travelmarvel were delightful and went the extra distance to ensure we were comfortable and well looked after at every point.


I recently toured with Cosmos – The golden West Adventure 2017.

Michelle Slipper of YOU Travel Manukau booked this trip for me and her attention to detail and service was outstanding. She was friendly, engaging and pre-empted any concerns I had.

Michelle was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and when I returned she followed up to check everything had gone smoothly.

I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle as my preferred Agent and will be booking my forthcoming trip (with Cosmos) through Michelle. She is an asset to your company and I look forward to my future travels with Michelle’s expert guidance.

Best Regards - Jill Franklin

Dear Kay, we live in Christchurch and were planning a large trip to the Northern Hemisphere. We were referred to YOU Travel Manukau and dealt with Kay solely by phone and email. Jenny and I thoroughly enjoyed our time away. The itinerary that you organised for us was really good, in other words excellent, considering that we were away for just over a month. We found that we had plenty of time between connecting flights ie. arriving in Houston and then catching a connecting flight to Chicago. The tours were really good especially the Iceland ones. Hotels were excellent and were well situated with regards to sightseeing tours, as well as good restaurants and special areas of interest.

Kay, I sincerely thank you for all your efforts in organising our holiday, which has given us some wonderful and lasting memories. We are thinking about going to The Lions Convention in Milan - Italy in 2019, so I will be calling on your expertise. Richard and Lorraine Simmons were great hosts for us in Chicago and it was great to catch up with them in Auckland last weekend.

Cheers for now - Don Mackay

Travelling is always fun, but what makes it even BETTER is having a GOLDEN travel agent! If you are thinking of heading overseas any time soon, get in touch with Lisa Watson from YOU Travel Manukau, as I have never met someone as lovely, efficient, funny, helpful and honest as Lisa. You won't regret it!

She made my trip a breeze as I literally did not have to do a thing organisation-wise so I was left to enjoy the whole process ... and then the holiday!

Thanks a bunch Lisa! You'll be sorting my trips for life!


Our APT river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam was the best holiday we've ever had. Wonderful cruise line with so many extras. Food five star, trips ashore well thought out, great staff, comfortable cabins, and lots of extras only available on APT. All chauffeur pick ups went without a hitch.

Well done to You Manukau, especially our agent Glennis, for organising everything so successfully.
