Every minute of the customers’ needs are covered. We will ensure disappointments never occur – such as checking into your beautiful hotel on the lake, only to find you are in a room facing a car park or next to a busy lift.

We will establish all your needs and ensure they are met without you asking every time. What we say is what we deliver!

OUR STORY

South African-born founder of Incredible Experiences has travel in her blood.

Gwen

“All our business has been by word of mouth……We believe in a customer-centric, hands-on approach to travel. Everything from your flights to your accommodation should be perfect and hassle-free.”

Gwen Strachan, began working in the travel, event and tourism industry alongside her father’s travel consulting company during the 90’s and has successfully run two travel and event management companies, in both South Africa and the UK.

Her area of expertise lies in inbound travel and special events management in both Southern Africa and the UK. In fact, she’s organised huge events for African and Asian Heads of States, as well as royalty.

From this experience Gwen has learnt about the needs of the luxury / VIP / Head of State traveler and how to meet them. She has continued this same service through her product offerings. She believes that each of her clients deserves to be treated like a Head of State – to ensure their needs are met in advance, their journeys are planned seamlessly and for whatever purpose the event or journey is for, that it is met and enjoyed.

IE Travel Group believes in the full customer experience from the minute we have our first conversation to when we are planning our clients next journey.

As the world keeps expanding and global travel becomes so much easier, Gwen believes in unique and unforgettable experiences. Whether its a private dinner in the wine cellar where the communists met in Moldova, exploring ancient castles, luxury rail journeys or even private picnics on a secluded island, the team can make it happen.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“The company definitely lives up to its name. Holidays are tailor-made for you -never had a problem. They look after you and nothing is too much. We have used Incredible Experiences four times now and will carry on doing so. 5 stars!” – Miranda Hill Whybrow 

 

“We have just come back from an amazing trip to Japan. Everything worked so well. We left it up to Incredible Experiences to put a package together for us and that was amazing. This is the second time we have used Incredible Experiences and can’t recommend them enough.” – Tricia Hirst

 

“This is the second time I have used Incredible Experiences. First trip was to South Africa and they sorted everything out, gave me a professional pack with all my documents. I asked for a mid-range holiday experience and I got much more than that.  
All the places I stayed were way above expectation and within my budget so these guys certainly have not only good contacts but also good knowledge of the areas as they put us in the best spots. 
South Africa trip by these guys was 10/10. I have just had my next booking with them to Taiwan sorted by Incredible Experiences for New Year and I’m sure I will not be let down. Highly recommend!!” – Stuart Dixon 

 

“One of the other benefits of using Incredible Experiences however is despite getting a full itinerary, airport transfers, all the paperwork and boarding cards etc….taken care of for you, when things do not go according to plan, Gwen or her team are there to support you and put it all right in a flash. 
I cannot recommend Incredible Experiences services enough, I am fully converted and look forward to asking them to plan our next adventure! 
Thank you Gwen and your wonderful team.” – Dave Hill
