We worked with a fantastic trip planner/coordinator at Polar Holidays– very knowledgeable about Antarctica and the Arctic. Polar Holidays makes it easy to travel so that we could focus on the trip adventure and experience. Thomas is regularly on these trips, so he was able to help us select among the large number of available cruises available – we were initially overwhelmed by the choices! As a professional photographer, Thomas is generous with helping and teaching guests to improve their photography versus some other photography trips where the guide is focused on their own photography or isn’t responsive to the guest’s level of photography experience. We have a continuing friendship with the people at Polar Holidays and keep in touch. Polar Holidays doesn’t just think of our relationship as trip-only event and is helpful about suggestions related to other trips. They are thoughtful and work to meet all the guests’ needs so they enjoy the trip, whether or not it their first cruise or not.
Polar Holidays is the absolutely best firm I have ever booked with – and I do 2-3 big international trips a year. They are only a very knowledgeable about the different tours with lots of great insight into guest needs, but they also takes extremely good care of his clients. I can’t wait to go on another trip with them.
I have been fortunate to have booked through Polar Holidays for 2 tours, one to the polar bears in Spitzbergen and another to Antarctica. They are knowledgeable, kind and thoughtful, not only in the country in which you are traveling but also with their photographic knowledge. They go beyond the regular help and made both of these trips memorable. The photo they sent me after the cruise rocks!
I have traveled with Polar Holidays twice to Antarctic to photograph the penguins and once to see the polar bear babies. I enjoyed all three immensely, Polar Holidays was attentive to every detail and made sure we all got to South America, despite any challenge due to weather delays. That door-to-door service made the whole experience so much more enjoyable. Each cruise is a unique experience, one I will repeat in the near future. Thanks Thomas and Polar Holidays!
This is an exciting experience enhanced by the enthusiasm and skill which Polar Holidays devotes to their clients. They are not only knowledgeable but kind and patient when helping select the right cruise – there are so many of them! They treat their clients with respect and care to detail. I would have no reservations about joining him on another trip after Antarctica and South Georgia.
I have travelled with Polar Holidays to see the baby penguins and polar bears, both fantastic trips. I plan to go with them again this year to South Georgia. Thomas has travelled to all his destinations many times, so he is very knowledgeable about the area, people, etc. He knows the ships and knows exactly which trip is best. Thomas helped me book, and he has a great sense of humor and is a lot of fun. He is patient about answering all the questions when preparing for the trip-the ins and outs of what to take, wear, etc. You can’t go wrong by using Polar Holidays to book one of these exciting journeys. The free print is great!
