“I’ve been a customer of OROKO for the last 12 months and have booked family holidays, ski trips and short breaks. The whole experience is brilliant; you explain the type of holiday that you are hoping to have, without specifying necessarily where and the team will present you a series of ideas and options, all costed out. It takes away all the stress of planning a trip. On top of this, you receive a full itinerary, and all activities can be sourced in advance. I’m a big fan.”
