Testimonials

  • Ahsan and Shahnaz Hafeez

    Thank you very much for arranging our Scotland and Ireland vacation program. From Air Line tickets , to hotel arrangements and arranging for very interesting sight seeing tours were all just fantastic. Discount Travel crew of Ireland and UK personnel are very highly professional people. They were very friendly, courteous and in all sense very professional. The personal guided tours were very informative and they also gave us time to shop in selected places which was very helpful . In my opinion their commentary was just like listening to well informed Historians.

    From picking us up from the Airports to dropping us off was all perfectly on time and I must really complement on their punctuality and professionalism.

    The Hotels in Edinburgh and Dublin served our purpose. They were all in the City and easily accessible to all highlights. Restaurants in both hotels provided very good food and the staff was very friendly , courteous and met all our demands. People who live in USA are all spoiled by 4 star and 5 star hotel ratings. In Europe you just cannot anticipate the same equivalent grade. But we all slept well and with comfort.

    I must say in the end that people in both countries were very friendly and define courtesy very well. Again thank you for all your efforts in arranging such a fabulous vacation.
    Note: Our granddaughter Saher can’t wait for another European Vacation.

  • Tauqir Ahmed

    Last Year, we performed Hajj thru Discount Travel of Lombard, IL. We have nothing but great compliments for Br. Sadiq for providing us with such a beautiful, memorable and satisfying experience. We were provided a very professional and caring support thorough out our trip. My mother-in law carries a Pakistani passport. On our way to Medina we transited thru Qatar. Br. Sadiq made sure for us to stay in a hotel at the Qatar airport. As I understand It is not easy for an older person to get a Qatari visa. All in all a great job.

  • Irfaan Ghafoor

    This is Irfaan Ghafoor and we (sis Saadia and mom Tallat) just came back from Umrah Alhamdulilah. No problems with anything and we had safe trip and my mom is in Pakistan now. Just wanted to thank you and QASSWA for everything. They were on time and very professional and it was a good experience. May Allah give you reward for helping so many people make their dreams come true for HAJJ and UMRAH. And next time, hopefully soon, we will call you to help us make travel plans for upcoming trips.
