Having worked in the industry for so long I have had the opportunity to visit some amazing places and become an expert in others! My favourite place is western Canada. I love the Canadian Rockies and adore the city of Vancouver.
Italy is amazing, and I love to Cruise, as I believe that it’s the best way to see the world.

Victoria has arranged our holidays for several years now. She knows what we like and what our needs are. She pays attention to detail and we always feel safe having booked with her. She is a lovely lady and is always patient and helpful

As usual I received excellent service from Victoria. I wouldn't go anywhere else to book my holidays. She is a superstar.

Victoria Costello is fantastic and is very thorough in her findings. She is always on hand with any questions and is a pleasure to do business with. She really gives a 5 star service and cares about her clients.
Helen Goodwin, Upminster, 03 May 2013
Victoria Costello worked really hard to get us just the holiday we were looking for and we were fussy! To add to the complication we were meeting up with friends for the 2nd week, so that all needed tying up together! I would certainly ask Victoria to...

I had Vicki recomended to me and I also told one of my collegues to book through her. She has been a star throughout the booking process, thinking of all the things I hadn't and taking the stress out of booking a holiday. Many thanks

Over the last couple of years Victoria has helped me book a number of holidays to far away places, Antartica being just one of these. Her help has been invaluable. I have just had to give Victoria the place I would like to visit, the number of days and...

My husband and I have always had a top rate sevice from Vicky every time she has booked a holiday for us, I highly recomend her.
Angela Challis, Leigh on sea, 12 March 2013
Wonderful, friendly and efficient service. Victoria makes booking a holiday much easier - we just hope now the holiday is as enjoyable! Cannot recommend Victoria Costello and Travel Counsellors enough.
Lisa Burbidge, Rayleigh, 12 March 2013
Great service. Victoria researched and answered any questions I raised, offered recommendations and advice, nothing too much trouble. I have recommended her to colleagues in the past and wouldn't hesitate to do so in the future. Keep up the good work...
Graham Biggin, Kent, 12 March 2013
Nothing is too much trouble for Victoria! She remembers what we like and keeps all our details on file so that we don't have to keep repeating them! Have booked our holidays through her for several years and wouldn't use anyone else!
Tracey Stanyer, Stoke On Trent, 12 March 2013
Victoria was very helpful and I will be booking with her again for my next trip.
Rachel Healey, Manchester, 12 March 2013

Texas' capital Austin has a slogan, "Keep Austin Weird" and once you have visited this quirky, small (but the US fastest growing city) place you will totally not want it to change. Around a nine and half hour flight from London (BA now fly direct from Heathrow) you arrive in a small airport, easy and quick to clear customs and in around 20 minutes you are Downtown. Austin is a walkable city and this is the best way to see all of the sights, and you never actually know what sight you will come across! With a clear lack of...

I am finding it hard to describe Vegas without thinking that you have read it all before. We all have seen Vegas on TV, in films etc. and it is exactly as you see it, big, bold, bright and busy! However, Vegas is a destination which you can change to suit you and there is something for everyone here. On flying into Las Vegas, I could understand why people are attracted to this colourful oasis in the desert. The huge buildings rising out of the desert, a Pyramid, Towers, Castle are just a few of the huge shapes which form these gigantic...

For a quick and easy break in the sun, nowhere is as accessible and fits this description as Marbella, Cost del Sol, Spain. Only a two hour flight from the UK (and if you check in on-line you do not even need to hang around the airport for two hours) it is quicker than a train from Manchester to London! May is not a busy time for Spain, especially the beginning, so flights are really reasonable at this time of year, making it also very affordable. Marbella is about 40 minutes or so drive from Malaga Airport and you can...

We decided to have a weekend Theatre break in London with the kids. To take the hastle out of travelling we chose the train, from Stockport, Cheshire to London Euston in under 2 hours, fantastic! First class travel was reasonably priced and the carriages were very spacious making the less than 2 hour trip a doddle with a 3 and 5 year old. We then took the underground to Waterloo, one of the closest stations to our chosen hotel, the 4* Park Plaza County Hall Hotel, a hotel I throughly recommend especially to anybody staying with children. The hotel lobby is small, the...

After a 2 hour flight from Manchester to Malaga (Which is about all I can do with my 2 children who are just 3 and 4 years old! It would not be fair on the rest of the plane to travel any further!) we collected a 7 seater as we were travelling with my parents too (I find it very handy to travel with them! Great baby sitters!). It was just short of an hours drive to Duquesa where we had booked our apartment and this drive was easy enough, one straight road really. The port of Duquesa is very...

Disneyland Resort Paris - Wonderful! For people who have small children and for those who don't, I think that the Disneyland Resort in Paris is great fun. Easily accessible, I flew into Charles de Gaulle from Manchester which was a very quick and easy flight. Charles de Gaulle is a large airport, however Jet 2 have a small terminal a little way from the main larger terminals so it is quiet and not stressful when you land. Disney itself is about 45 minutes drive and you can either get the Disney Magic transfer about Eur12 per adult (Big yellow bus...
