The Livingstone Tourism Association (LTA) existed without putting together issues that needed to be addressed by authorities. We contracted Mike to work on the Needs Assessment for our destination-Livingstone, Zambia. Then we realized that we also needed a Strategic Plan to move our Association forward. Mike worked on both projects effectively and within the shortest period. We are now using the LTA Strategic Plan as our benchmark to move forward.

- Kingsley Lilamono, Chairman, Livingstone Tourism Association (LTA)

The Journey has done a number of projects for RETOSA and I am happy to testify that each of the projects the Journey did for our organization were done professionally and to our expectations. I will therefore not hesitate to recommend the Journey to anyone wishing to get a professional service in tourism related business.

- Simba Mandinyenya, DIRECTOR: Research, Planning and Development, RETOSA

Even though, there was a time constraint for preparation, the result was beyond our expectations.  I, as organizer (also as trainee) and other ToT trainees are highly satisfied with training that you provided.  You shared us expected   skills, attitudes and knowledge using appropriate training methods and facilitation skills that will help us in promoting tourism resources of Ethiopia through developing market strategies and appropriate promotional materials.
