We used Peterson Travel to book our Honeymoon this year (August 2010) and were very impressed. They were recommended by a colleague and I must say everything went perfectly.

There were a number of stages / elements to our trip (hiking, Rainforest Lodge, Scuba etc) and every connection was sorted and each venue made an extra effort to make the trip special.

Highly recommended.
