A fantastic experience

“I used Black Tomato to organise our honeymoon in Rwanda and Kenya. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They managed to capture our desire to be off the beaten path and balance it with fantastic creature comforts. Black Tomato did an amazing job; I would not hesitate to use them again to book a luxury vacation.”

Hannah, Black Tomato Client

This was a fabulous and fantastic adventure and afterwards they sent us a thoughtful gift at home. I recommend Black Tomato, they make travel stress free!”
