  • Testimonials

    “We have just returned from Kalkan after a wonderful holiday and I just wanted to thank you all for your help in getting our flights changed on our day of departure.
    We woke to news that our flight had been cancelled. How reassuring it was for us to talk to Louise who had already been on the phone to the other carriers and had found out that all the flights were leaving.
    What we would have done if we had booked our holiday independently I do not know. I have sometimes questioned whether it is better to book our holiday ourselves, however, I was mightily relieved that we had booked via yourselves and this has probably changed my view considerably.
    Thanks to Louise and all your staff who worked so hard to get us home on our intended day of departure.”.

    “We have travelled with Discerning Collection before, we find them first class, far better than other companies we have used. From start to finish everything went like clockwork. The Likya Residence is superb with excellent service.”.

    “Always attentive to my questions and extremely helpful and reliable. Peninsula Gardens is a gorgeous hotel, very relaxed and much more my vibe than a modern place. Lovely staff, delicious breakfasts and dinners. Loved it!
