User Comments:

From start to finish, Oasis made my trip the best it could have been! The first thing I noticed about Oasis was its easy to use website and complete information. The prices were the best value too.

The two guys who ran my trip were amazing too. James was a great leader. I really appreciated being helped with local issues and activities. He would always tell us what we needed to know and let us ask questions but without being overbearing. Not just a good tour leader but a really decent guy too.

Pat, our driver was just as important in making my trip great. Yet another really good guy. I always felt safe with Pat at the wheel and he always helped out in making our trip fun.

The other people on the tour were so friendly too. I’ve made some good and hopefully longtime friends on this trip and I miss them already.

The next trip I book will, of course be through Oasis. Thanks again for all that you’ve done.

VERY sincerely,

Lesley
