Faramarz Defaee is an extremely unprofessional and untrustworthy person. HE IS A LIAR, CROOK, AND CON-ARTIST. He charged my credit card twice for one service. One time to his Paypal account and the next time to the Emirates Airline. He owes me $3200.00. He promised me several times that he would refund the money to my account on such and such a date but he never did it. He has been postponing this refund for nine months. He doesn't return his phone messages either. I filed a claim in Small Claims Court against him, and he didn't show up and I got a judgment over him. (Collection is a different matter...haven't gotten to that stage yet.)
Avoid dealing with World Travelers, also known as Donya Travel, Faramarz Defaee, Andrew or Fred Defai. You should not believe anything he says.
Donya Travel, you will be sued and put in jail.
You cannot run a shady agency like this and get away with it and leave people hanging.
Avoid This Travel Agency and This Untrustable Person, AVOID – Just simply AVOID this UNTRUSTWORTHY person.
If you want trouble go for this agency. This person, Defaee, is a horrible person and he will get your money and will not do anything for you, and you will face a lot of trouble suing him to get your money back.
What ever bob bruins and nkar, and others say about him is absolutely true.
I wish I have read these reviews before, so I would not go through so much hell. He is a Liar and he will steal your money.
I am serious, if you go with this person, you will be sorry big time.
Just avoid him.
Andrew Defaee, SHAME ON YOU.
You deserve to be in jail, instead of that office.
I wish I have never known you.
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE
Very honest travel agent – I have used this travel agent named Faramarz by getting a referral from my mother-in-law 10 years ago for a trip to Israel. He gave all of (total of 7 tickets) best rate and we travel through Europe as well with several stops. Then recently I bought a ticket for my aunt coming from overseas. He helped us to hold the ticket until her visa issue was resolved and helped us to purchase it and my aunt arrived to Dallas safely and on time. We really appreciate him and his promises and guidances to us came all true.
Untrustworthy – We had bought a few tickets from Faramarz/Andrew Defaee (Donya Travel) in the past. Although there were some problems at times but we never guessed that he will steal form us.
During our last transaction, he overcharged my credit card by the price of one full ticket "by mistake" and since then (over a year now), he is trying to sort this with his accounting department (which is himself) and pay me back. I have not been successful to get this amount back from my credit card company (AMEX!!!) which was the biggest surprise to me as this case seemed as a no brainer (I have copies of the checks that he has cashed for the same ticket)!
Another thing that he usually does and we just found out is that he buys tickets with unmatched "ticket classes" during the busy season at a much cheaper price and then you will have problem to get on the plane at the airport. The last few times the airline employees just complained about our ticket classes and our travel agent but they let us in. In the last trip, Lufthansa made us pay a $650 fine to change the class of EACH ticket. This made me so mad at Lufthansa and I started complaining to every Lufthansa customer service that I could reach. One employee clearly explained the "unmatched class" reservation trick that MANY "shady" travel agents do and suggested that we sue the agent. They also provided some supporting documents. I am not sure if I have the time to sue him for the couple thousand dollars he had cost us but will never buy from him again.
Bad Service Invalid Promises Avoid – You will probably get good price, but is not worth it. Guy making invalid promises. You sould be very serious, don't pay all moeny up front.
avoid avoid avoidddddddddddd – If you want good travel avoid from framarz (donya travel) because he is liar.
Fast & Friendly – I callled Andrew for a last minute ticket to Chicago for a business trip. He got me a great rate, and got me on the plane the Same Day! - I could only find a flight with one stop for a little bit more money than the one got me nonestop!!
The best vacation ever!!! – Well during the summer of 2009 I called up Andrew and asked him to book me a flight to Europe and to North Africa, his service were prompt and profesional. I was very happy I contacted this travel agency I don't regret any of it. All of these mean and hateful reviews are stupid and mean I don't understand.
