Dean has been he perfect mix of personal and professional. Sourced the holiday of a lifetime for our honeymoon, and we can't wait to go next week! Dean remembered all the little details, while still remembering the big picture. Couldn't recommend enough!

Dean organises all of my travel both UK and abroad, it is wonderful to be able to pick up the phone tell somebody who you trust completely your destination, your dates and your budget and for them to deliver a most wonderful package without you having to give it a second thought. I would travel anywhere in the world with absolute confidence if Dean had arranged the trip for me.

Hi Dean, Just thought I'd let you know that the recent weekend birthday treat was a HUGE success!!! They told me that the train journeys were on time and perfect - the hotel and the service was terrific - they thoroughly enjoyed 'We Will Rock You' and the seats couldn't have been better - and the meal at Claridges was superb! They were made a fuss of at the restaurant, as I remember you telling me that you'd informed them it was a 'Special Birthday'. All in all, they had a wonderful weekend. Thank you SO much again Dean, we couldn't have done it without you!! I look forward to you planning OUR next holiday, it can’t come soon enough! Kindest regards, Pat

Mark and I are triathletes and have competed home and abroad over the last 10 years. We were introduced to Dean about 4 years ago by a fellow triathlete and since then Dean has researched and organised the travel and accommodation to a number of these triathlon events which has involved transporting bikes as well as ourselves to Hawaii, Lanzarote, Lausanne and Hamburg. His professionalism and committment has taken all the stress out of the organisation whilst we can concentrate on the competition itself. Last year, when Mark decided he wanted a quiet beach holiday for his 50th Birthday, Dean suggested the Maldives and WOW what a great holiday it was, so relaxing, sunbathing, snorkelling and scuba diving. This year Lucy, our 16 year old daughter chose the holiday destination - to Disneyland Florida, which Dean has organised. We have just finished packing confident in the knowledge that Dean's attention to detail will result in yet another fun packed holiday. We have no hesitation in recommending Dean to our family and friends and hope to have many more holidays organised by him.

Just a note to say thank you for arranging our wonderful trip to Hong Kong. Your suggestion of using the Peninsula Hotel was indeed the highlight giving us a unforgettable experience. Of course, the airport transfers you arranged worked like a dream too. Many thanks. What was an idea for a trip to Washington DC And New York this October soon turned into a reality with the speedy way you were able to locate central hotels of the highest standard along with arrangements for airport transfers. We are looking forward to your suggestion to travel Washington to New York on the train. A first for us! Thanks to Travel Counsellors we feel completely confident that all the arrangements will co-ordinate perfectly and if there are any unexpected eventualities we know you are just a phone call away. Many thanks

Dear Dean, I asked you to arrange a surprise holiday for my mum as she was celebrating her 50th birthday. Your response was speedy and you provided me with a bespoke package that encompassed all of her favourite destinations, travel and luxuries! Your attention to detail and friendly approach to your work is outstanding. I will certainly be using Travel Counsellors again (in fact I have already booked another holiday and have two trips lined up for next year!!!). I recommend Travel Counsellors to anyone who is planning to travel and wants that personal touch at no extra cost. Thanks again!

Geneva is the gateway to the Alps and as a consequence extremely well served in the winter from most parts of the UK. With most ski resorts selling accommodation Saturday to Saturday, flight prices mid-week can be exceptionally good. This is what drove our interest in finding somewhere in the Geneva area for a short pre-Christmas break. I'd heard of Montreux because of the Jazz festival but had never visited but when I found that it had a Christmas market and was accessible by train from Geneva airport we thought why not. It turned out to be a great choice. Montreux is...

I recently travelled to Nepal for a week of trekking, white water rafting and mountain biking. We also visited Chitwan National Park in the south central part of the country. We flew with Jet Airways from Heathrow via Delhi to Kathmandu where we spent the first night. Jet Airways were excellent with good leg room, in flight service and entertainment and I would definitely use them again. We were lucky to get upgraded to business class on the way out which featured fully flat beds and again excellent in flight food, service and entertainment. We came home in economy which was...
