Client Testimonials

Claire from London

November 2017

« As someone who had never been to Paris before, faced with the possibility of one weekend away and so much to do and see in such a small amount of time, I had no idea of where to start. Cmycities were a fantastic help in easing much of that pressure. Larissa was able to make many excellent suggestions based on location and her experience of the local amenities. She even booked our meals at various restaurants to help ease the pressure further. My family and I had a truly fantastic time. Paris is a beautiful city and I was able to experience that to its fullest as a result of the knowledge and service offered by Cmycities. Many thanks Larissa. Until the next time. »

Susan from Nuneaton

October 2017

« I used Cmycities to help me organize a weekend for four people to celebrate a friend’s 50th birthday, and she had never been to Paris. Cmycities was with me every step of the way over months of planning. Everyone had a great time and had nothing but praise for the hotel, location we stayed in, hand-picked restaurants, and the sight-seeing activities chosen. My friend has now fallen in love with Paris and we all want to go back to the beautiful city of light. »

Marie from Cape Town

October 2017

« Going to Dubai with Cmycities was a great experience! When exposing some of my second thoughts regarding the destination (I was 6 months pregnant then) on our initial call, Renda gave me so much valuable insight she convinced me it was a good idea. She gave me some tips on how to have an amazing experience in the desert, and how to get out of the city to discover Oman. This trip would not have been the same without her! She really took good care of us and shared her best addresses for spa, shopping and restaurants… A real point of view as a local, was crucial. She gave me the opportunity to ask her a lot of questions about culture too, and not as boring or commercial as it could have been if I had organized this short vacation with a travel agent. And I made a new friend! »
