Alta Igloo – Norway
“I can honestly say that the break was just wonderful. My wife loved what the hotel did with the honeymoon suite, bottle of champagne, rose petals etc etc. The hotel Vica is very quaint and has loads of character, ideal for we wanted, and the people who run the hotel are all lovely. Especially Camilla (the daughter) who was so helpful with local information and gave us all that we needed to know.
The food was excellent!!! We tried reindeer, which was very nice, but didn't go for the whale!
The ice hotel and ski mobile tour was just fantastic and was well ran and operated by two smashing chaps. The food was also very good.
Everyone we met was very welcoming and helpful in everyway. I can really say that Norway is a great country in many ways. We also went to the Alta museum to see the carvings.
All in all it was a lovely weekend.
Thank you for all your efforts and arrangements Terhi.”
Ice Hotel – Sweden
“The weekend at the hotel was amazing. My wife kept asking if I was taking her there as a surprise but I managed to convince her otherwise right until the end.
The whole trip was perfect too. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful and friendly, and all the flights and excursions you booked for me were spot on. I could quite easily live in the village of Jukkasjarvi as it was so relaxing.
Not the cheapest of weekends but worth every penny! Hopefully we can return there again one day.
Thanks again for arranging everything on our behalf. It was really magical.”

Wedding in Kakslauttanen – Finland
“It really was fantastic and I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. We love Kakslauttanen, after all we had been there the year before and decided it was what we wanted for the wedding. The accommodation in Kakslauttanen was great overall. All of the guests had a great time and I think they were actually very impressed with everything.
Please accept my heartfelt thanks. I really think you did a great job and found it a pleasure (and very stress free) to deal with Best Served. I look forward to booking a holiday with you in the future. Everything was well planned and it all went smoothly from our point of view. I found all the staff helpful and quick to respond to any queries I had. Terhi you were fantastic and I can’t thank you enough.”

Midnight sun self drive in Finnish Lapland
“We had a lovely holiday, the weather held and it did not rain except on the day when we drove from Inari to Enontekio so it did not matter. The hotels were fine and so was breakfast. We had a very good time and we will be going back.”

Summer wedding in Haringe Castle
“The wedding was amazing! We had a perfect day. Bi was extremely helpful and the service was beautiful. Thank you so much for all your help. We couldn't have pulled it off without you! We never imagined it would be so special. Thanks again for everything. You did an excellent job and help make our day the best possible.”

New Year in Reykjavik
“Had a great time. Hotel was above expectations and we had a pleasant evening with a party from Germany at the Gala on New Year's Eve. We hired a car for a day to do our own exploration as well as attending the Geysers. The organised trip to the Lagoon went as planned other than it was howling with rain and wind.
I would recommend you should any friends talk of visiting Iceland and we will use you again should we decide to go back to Reykjavik.”
Alta Igloo and Oslo
“I would just like to say thank you for organising such a lovely holiday for us. Everything went very smoothly and greatly exceeding our expectations. We had a wonderful time! Everyone in Norway was so friendly. The holiday was made extra special as Kevin proposed to me under the northern lights! I would not hesitate to recommend Best Served to a friend and will look forward to using you again in the future.
Kevin and Alexandra
“We returned from our visit to the Ice Hotel yesterday and I just wanted to thank you so much for organising it all for us.
Everything went like clockwork and we had a fantastic time! It was brilliant, and we even got to see the Northern Lights!
Many thanks once again,

Alta Igloo Exclusive
“We are back home and we had a lovely time, much better than I had imagined. Everything went according to the programme and everybody was very nice. The weather was a bit cold - minus 23 when we left Alta. My favorite thing was the "dogs". In the ice hotel the chef told us that we were the first Portuguese to have stayed there.
Filipa Cardoso, Portugal
“I have now returned from the holiday you arranged for me on Spitsbergen.
I had a wonderful time, it exceeded my expectations!
All the arrangements went like clockwork; I did not have a moment of anxiety.
When I got there I was able to arrange other excursions including a 10 hour boat trip and a ride on a husky sledge (on wheels at this time of year). The weather was unusually warm and the sky was clear and the air so fresh.
I will not hesitate about contacting you again when I am planning future adventures.
All good wishes

‘Thanks a million for organising our short break so superbly. Everything was very well organised, and the price was excellent as well. We will definitely want to use you for our next adventure!’Dani and Esther Epstein
Stockholm City Break - Sweden
"Stockholm was stunning. The canals, the architecture, the history, the culture, the food, the place just didn't miss a beat. And so easy to get around. Best Served did an excellent job in finding me quality accommodation without the exorbitant price tag. All within easy access to all the major attractions of this wonderful city. I would definitely use Best Served again. Thank you!"

Jurmala Spa, Latvia
"My weekend at the Jurmala Spa in Latvia was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable ones I've had in a long time. My friend and I got in quite late on the Friday evening from long, tiring weeks at work, so to not have to worry about planning anything was a dream. I started the Saturday with an invigorating Escargot Shower, not for the modest amongst us! This was followed up by a delicious buffet breakfast and a wonderful hour spent relaxing in their spa. There are a few saunas of different temperature, a plunge pool and a normal pool with waterfall. I almost didn't want to leave for my full body lymph massage! The mixture of music, aromatherapy oils and the capable hands of my masseuse meant that I was almost asleep by the time my hour long treatment ended - fantastic. I thought I was going to miss my penultimate treatment, the salt cave, but I managed to make it in time and was glad that I did. Lying in an ethereal room on a comfortable lounger with the sound of waves crashing around me and soft, low lighting knocked me out. I could breathe more easily after this treatment and couldn't believe that it basically consisted of lying in a room! I would strongly recommend that people have this treatment. My day finished with a manicure & pedicure. The colour on my nails stayed for nearly 3 weeks after my return and I was very impressed with the ladies who treated me. I did manage to see a little bit of the surrounding village but unfortunately not much. It is very beautiful and certainly worth a look if you have time. I am planning my next visit to Jurmala for the near future!"

Fly drive in South Iceland
"All in all the holiday was perfect, everything went perfectly well, car hire, hotels, directions and itinerary were excellent... I was hoping to propose my girlfriend by the large waterfall on the south Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss but with the wind chill it must have been -10 to -20!! Chilly!!
On the Sunday we drove the Gullfoss and onto the Geysirs... One the way to the ingvellir National Park I stopped the car on a nice quite spot and proposed, it was perfect... (Thankfully she said yes!!)
I have been meaning to thank you for all the effort you went to when drawing up the itinerary and providing me with all the necessary information, it was the best help from a holiday company I have ever received.
I have recommended you to many of my friends.
Thank you again, and I will be in touch next year to book our next trip away..."
Cruise and spa, Sweden and Finland
"Thank you for a fantastic holiday. I was attracted initially by your website design and the choice of holidays, which appeared quite unique when compared to other companies. The price too was competitive. When I placed my order with you, I found out your prompt reply encouraging and attention to detail in arranging all of the necessary arrangements reassuring. Everything ran like clockwork. This was important because this holiday was our honeymoon! The hotels themselves were especially of excellent quality and good value for money. I look forward to using your company again, it was certainly much easier and better than if I had tried to book all the component parts myself separately. I would certainly recommend you to others."Dr T. O., Plymouth
Tailor made holiday to Stockholm, Ice Hotel, Tysfjord and Scotland
“All of the places were stunning and after looking at our photos, our family and friends all want to go! The people in Tysfjord were particularly friendly and accommodating, but I really can't pick a favourite. The Ice Hotel was a one in a million experience and as our first white Xmas, it was really special! Thank you again for the arrangements, service and effort from your side. It was truly an amazing experience.”
Mr and Mrs Rix, South Africa

Stockholm and Ice Hotel
“I wanted to thank you for helping me organize one of the best holidays I had. Everything worked perfectly, the hotels were great, and I thank you for that. I travelled to a lot of places and never used a travel agent, I will definitely recommend your services to all my friends.”
Midnight sun self drive in Finnish Lapland

Christmas holiday in Finland
“Thank you very much for arranging our trip. Your service was first class! It was fantastic – the adults enjoyed themselves equally as much as the children (if not more!) Everything we did was great, but the husky dog sleigh ride was just amazing. It was like being in Narnia! The countryside was just breathtaking in the snow. No Northern Lights for us – my second time to miss them (Lapland and Iceland). Never mind, will just have to go to the Arctic Circle again some day.”
5G excitement in Lillehammer
“Thought I would drop you a quick line about our weekend in Norway. The trip went like clockwork, there were no problems or delays and your organisation was perfect. The Bobraft & Bobsleigh on Saturday were exhilarating and on Sunday we had a fantastic days sking, the conditions were the best I have ever seen. My son never stopped smiling and when he thanked me for giving him the best weekend of his life, I could not have felt better, so I would like to pass my thanks onto you for your patience in dealing with me.”
