Tanya Robinson

It's Nice To Meet You

Sanibonani, Ni hao, Hello, Asalam o alikum, Bonjour, Namaste, Sawasdi Ka, G’day, Jambo!!
Greetings, from around the world

My name is Tanya, I am originally from South Africa and currently one of many thousands of expats spread across the globe. I have lived in South Africa, Australia, Singapore, England and now currently based in Dubai. If you are anything like me, then you must be itching to get back out there…

I am an experienced Travel consultant with a keen sense of adventure, an eye for detail, a taste for Asia and an undying love for Africa.

For as long as I can remember, my dream has been to work in hospitality and tourism. I knew from a young age that I wanted to travel. Growing up, our family holidays were spent travelling around South Africa, Swaziland, Mozambique, Mauritius and Thailand

When I graduated from high school, I spent a year backpacking around Australia, Vanuatu and New Zealand. I loved the freedom and independence of not knowing where the next few days, weeks or months would take me. Waking up and exploring new destinations, meeting people from all walks of life, submersing myself in the various activities and cultures that each country had to offer.

I have worked in Boutique hotels and luxury, top-end Safari Lodges in and around the Kruger National Park in South Africa. I spent 8 years working for an inbound Tour Operator specializing in luxury travel to Sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean before my family and I left South Africa.

Since our expat journey began, we have travelled to over 35 different countries. I have spent hours researching each destination and carefully planning every step of each journey. There are still many countries on my list, and I am so excited to start considering moving around again and planning our next experiences.

The world is a very different place from what it was pre-covid. Members of the travel and tourism industry, worldwide, have done everything they can to prepare for your safety and enjoyment. I understand and appreciate the importance of time, money and family and how these, amongst many other considerations, need to be incorporated into your journey. The extra precautions, questions and requirements you may have will be part of your journey with me as we delve back into exploring the world again.

I cannot wait to help you with your travel experience dreams.

We had a fabulous trip to Cape Town with an eco-safari that we booked with Tanya. Her detailed knowledge and understanding of South Africa really helped us with finding the right accomodation and activities for us. We booked at quite short notice, have 3 kids (whose ages made finding the right safari particularly tricky) and we weren't disappointed. Tanya was incredibly quick and responsive even during our trip. Due to the floods in Dubai we also had to extend our stay at short notice and had challenges getting flights home, but having Tanya ready to help and made the whole experience 1000 times better. Thank you Tanya, we will definitely be asking for your help again!

A safari trip was a bucket list experience for us as a family. We started the research stage by ourselves and very quickly realised we needed some assistance so we asked Tanya to help us out and plan our itinerary. As a family we can be quite indecisive but throughout the planning stage Tanya was so patient and made sure we were one hundred percent happy with the final itinerary. Nothing was ever too much trouble when we decided to switch things up and her knowledge and recommendations of the region was exactly what we needed. The hours of planning absolutely paid off as once we arrived in Tanzania everything ran like clockwork and the whole trip exceeded all of our expectations. Africa was just magical and definitely stole our hearts. Without Tanya’s meticulous planning and expertise we would never have got there, she truly is amazing.

Tanya has been our travel consultant for many years and has planned several international trips for our family. Her skill and insight into finding the perfect accommodation and itinerary to suit every family member is astonishing. Nothing is ever too much trouble and we have loved every hotel, location and activity suggestion that she has recommended. We look forward to planning many more fun filled trips with Tanya !!

We have been working with Tanya for years on trips to the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. Her vast network and appreciation for how we travel has been outstanding - her tailored programs to our family have been great. We also appreciate her responsiveness ‘in-trip’ as she is quick to answer questions, make adjustments and address any issues. We have recommended her to friends who have had the same experience! Hard to say which trip was the best- likely the next one we book with her will be the next best! Thanks to Tanya! Highly recommended!

Tanya did an outstanding job on planning our group trip to Morocco. It was a longer trip with lots of different locations and managing a large group definitely can add challenges planning. She was organized and our itinerary was amazing.

Tanya was incredible from start to finish helping to organise a complicated running trip for 26 women! I cannot recommend her services enough, especially when I had to cancel a large part of my trip due to an accident in my family. She had endless patience, understanding and was helpful at every stage. She is professional and highly competent and I won’t hesitate to go straight back to her for our next holiday, either with my family or my friends.

Tanya helped us to plan a wonderful 2 weeks away in Cyprus. She listened to understand exactly what we needed for a family vacation (with 2 young toddlers) and found the perfect resort to meet our needs, wishes and budget ;) All details were looked into and the follow up in the days leading to and on arrival in the resort were appreciated Highly recommended and will be in touch for the next one! Thank you

Tanya arranged an amazing holiday for us to Tanzania. She kept in touch with us about pick ups and how things were going. We definitely use again. Thanks so much Tanya - it was perfect

Many thanks, Tanya, for helping to plan a memorable first trip to Thailand for my husband and me. In light of the anticipated New Year's crowds, you went above and beyond to give us several itineraries to choose from. Ultimately, we chose to stay in Bangkok for five nights, which was a perfect mix of culture, activity and downtime. We enjoyed three private tours, each of which exceeded our expectations in terms of offerings and service level. The hotel you suggested was perfect and allowed us plenty of well-needed rest and relaxation. The seamless communication between the tour company and the hotel was also a nice surprise - we were notified by the hotel prior to each tour reminding us of pick-up times etc. All of it made for a memorable trip, allowing us to return to Dubai feeling rested and energized for the new year ahead! Thank you, Tanya!

I cannot thank Tanya enough for planning a fab trip for me and the family this December. She was on hand via WhatsApp for any questions if we needed her. Cannot wait to book the next one with her.

Tanya organised our honeymoon to Tanzania and Zanzibar. We can’t thank her enough! She had a consultative approach upfront as we weren’t sure where we wanted to go and helped us narrow it down to safari with some beach time at the end. She listened to what we were looking for and adapted the itinerary accordingly. She was always available for last minute questions and helped us work out what was going on when one of our internal flights was cancelled. It was so helpful to have someone who could liaise with the local companies. We were very impressed and would definitely use Tanya’s expertise in the future. Thank you!

Tanya went above and beyond to find the perfect holiday for our family after years of no holiday due to COVID. We were beyond happy with the holiday she planned, she addressed all of our needs in detail, gave us plenty of options and her professional insights, and she even kept in touch all the way up until our arrival! I won't ever book holidays myself again, couldn't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Tanya for delivering the best holiday for our family.

Tanya has organised 2 of my holidays so far and honestly I could not be happier! The organisation, the planning, and every detail were amazing. I completely trust her with my holidays and it makes everything much a smoother process. That's what holidays are for! I look forward to planning my next holiday with Tanya. Thank you so SO much!

Tanya is not only efficient, professional and skilled at her trade but really goes the extra mile in understanding what her clients need. She was incredibly helpful at very short notice and worked tirelessly (after hours) to assist in creating my perfect EID break in Sri Lanka. The trip surpassed my expectations (thanks to her detailed planning). I will not hesitate to use her again. Thank you, Tanya.

From start to finish Tanya listened to what we required as a family. She really came up trumps with our stay at the Intercontinental in Fujairah. It was exactly what we needed. The half-board option was excellent. Thank you for making this trip so easy for us.

Tanya was amazing at helping us organise our holiday, right down to even the touches of ordering a cake for my husband's 40th. The holiday was amazing and just stress-free! Tanya literally sorted everything out! This was the first time I've used someone and I will always be using her for holidays as it makes it so much easier! Thank you so much, Tanya!! An look forward to working with her again!

Thank you Tanya for all your detailed and incredibly knowledgeable guidance. Without your help, we would never have made the most of our holiday as we did. In the Covid world, we are living in, it really took the burden off us. We knew that we were not going to make costly mistakes, which when travelling these days is quite possible. We had an absolutely superb worry-free holiday. Thank you, Tania, I am already talking about the next booking with you!

Sent by Maria Badenhorst

Tanya has been amazing since day 1. She was quick to respond and worked around the clock since our trip was plan B and we didn’t have a lot of time to book everything. She goes out of her way to support with all your travel needs. I highly recommend her!

Our family reached out to Tanya with almost no notice to plan a week long getaway to Europe. We had heard that borders were reopening and wanted to explore options. Without any delay, Tanya figured out where we could travel to, based on local reopening dates, and coordinated a full package for our holiday. She took care of all the little details - adding beds for additional children in our rooms and calling the local suppliers to confirm different options. She didn`t stop providing options and advice as we worked to find just the right accommodation, flights, etc. In the end - her recommendations were spectacular. The trip far exceeded our expectations and we were so perfectly thrilled with everything. We will definitely want to work with her for future family vacations!

Working with Tanya has been a complete joy from start to finish. She came up with many ideas, perfectly matching my brief. She was always available to answer any questions that I had, always getting back to me very quickly. She is extremely knowledgeable on the venues she selected and the rules around regional Covid regulations. I really like that she messaged me the day before my trip to make sure I had everything prepared and ready and sent links for booking activities and restaurants ahead of time. I have worked with travel counsellors in the past, but I've never had such a positive experience as the one I've had with Tanya and will most certainly work with her again.

Tanya recently helped us organise an amazing road trip around Greece. We stayed in 5 locations over 7 days, which was a lot of work to research the best accommodation options in each destination for a family of 5, but she was unflappable no matter how many times I went back to her with a change of itinerary or hotel. She went so far as to contact hotels directly to get permission for our 3 children to stay in one room with us when the limitation was normally 2; she was also checking up on the parking situation for us in each place, as well as organising the hire car. Towards the end when we stayed in Athens, again she liaised with the hotel to find the closest COVID testing centre, and once she had that detail she contacted them and made the booking for our PCR test for us. Administrative work like that honestly saved me hours at the computer! Easy travelling during COVID times might seem like an optimistic gamble, but Tanya's advice on insurance to cover all eventualities, plus the reassurance of knowing she was there to assist should anything happen, helped to make it the great and safe experience that it was. We so enjoyed our family trip thanks to her wonderful manner and hard work.

Tanya's level of patience with our never-ending changes to our travel plans, ideas and thoughts, was the best start to our first journey with her and her services, genuinely nothing was too much trouble and quote after quote flowed in, when finally, we did make a decision..everything booked was perfect and completely fit in with our expectations and requirements, the app she has developed is also fantastic and is a big help with all the 'life admin' travelling these days involves! Thank you for a fab first hols!!

We had the most amazing trip to Georgia organised perfectly from start to finish by Tanya. We only contacted her 5 days before we wanted to visit. We stayed at three different hotels and all transfers and details were perfect. We felt looked after throughout our trip. Thank you, Tanya!
