Let me take the hassle out of planning your next holiday!
With so much to choose from now, and confusion on the internet, why not have your very own travel agent who will take all the stresses and strains out of finding your perfect holiday.
I have worked in the travel industry for over 20 years and have travelled extensively visiting some amazing places, gaining a wide knowledge of all aspects of travel from destinations including Spain, Turkey, Greece, South Africa, the Caribbean, Goa, Kenya, Japan, Hong Kong and many parts of the United States.
I became a Travel Counsellor in October 2006 and this has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Running my own business enables me to offer my customers a level of personal service and attention to detail that simply can't be found on the high street or on the internet! I can arrange anything from a short break to a round the world trip. I can also book all those little extras, airport lounges, car parking and travel insurance; everything to make your holiday extra special.
Because I run my own business, you can contact me at times when other travel agents are unavailable, including evenings and weekends. Using the latest technology and my personal expertise I can tailor make exactly the right holiday to suit your needs. I can quickly search through hundreds of flights, accommodation and transfer alternatives to find something that is right for you.
So let me take care of your next holiday, just give me a call or send me an email and I will be delighted to help.

A couple of months ago, I was trying to book flights for a friend and myself, with a few special requirements, including a wheelchair at each end and the inclusion of a birthday cake as additional hand luggage. Trying to do this alone, I was unable to book 2 seats together as I was flying only one leg of the journey with my friend, then she was flying back solo. So, I contacted Angela. Within an hour or so, she had all the arrangements in place and sent me the documents for confirmation and checking. I know how hard I had worked to make it happen, so I can only conclude that Angela has magic powers! The journeys went perfectly, staff at the airports took care of everything and my friend, the wheelchairs at each end - and not forgetting the special birthday cake - had the perfect trip, as did I. It was such a good experience that my 90-year old-friend will have no hesitation about flying here again next year - as long as we book through Angela, of course. I therefore strongly recommend Angela Guilfoyle's Travel Counsellor service.

Angela was amazing, we were recommended to her after nights of looking through the Internet and not knowing where to pick for our holiday destination! After getting in contact with Angela, she found our holiday straight away it was the second choice she showed us! Really happy with the service and will definitely be using Angela again!

Angela has been our "go to" travel advisor for a number of years. She has always been very efficient, professional and friendly. Nothing is too much for her. We would not, and have not hesitated in recommending her service. We will not be going elsewhere!

Everything that Travel Counsellors were responsible for went like clockwork. The airport parking was right next to the terminal so departing was easy and the car was right there waiting for me upon my return. TC checked me in so that procedure was a piece of cake as well. The flights and legroom (important in my case) were fine and the trips organised whilst I was away all worked well. Everyone was expecting us and there were no hiccups of any sort. The hotel was clean and the rooms were spacious and their staff could not have been more helpful. San Francisco is a lovely city but there are some issues with it such as the amount of homeless people downtown although they are not intimidating. For a family holiday, I would recommend staying in Fisherman's Wharf where there are fewer. I would thoroughly recommend it as a destination and why anyone would not let Travel Counsellors arrange their trip for them is now beyond me. They can achieve better deals than you can arrange for yourself and they take the hassle out of everything. A first class service that I will be using in the future.

My wife wanted to visit The Rockies and Alaska for many years so I decided to arrange this for her 60th birthday and wanted to do it in style. We had a vague idea of where we wanted to visit and were aware of the various packages available but we wanted something different. Fortunately we were introduced to Angela at Travel Counsellors and presented her with our wish list. From the moment we first talked to Angela about our wish list, everything ran smoothly and efficiently. Angela instinctively knew where we should go and what would suit us and provided a great range and balance of activities and options. Angela certainly came up with something different and in the end came up with a fantastic holiday.

I would like to thank you immensely for your advice and support in planning our holiday...your recommendations on enquiring about our preferences and interests were spot on! You made the whole booking experience simple and easy...in fact you did it all for us; the flights, hotel and excursions. You also advised on tips etc. on how we could make the best of our holiday. You were always approachable with any enquiry I had and gave your assistance as needed. You always replied and contacted me quickly...making the whole planning and booking experience stress free. We loved our holiday, every bit of it, the travel, the hotel and the excursions. This was a very special holiday for me and my 15 year old Son...as I guess we won't be having that many more together as he gets older. We were able to spend quality time together without any stress and /or hassle...about the logistic and that was down to you. Thank you so much.

Angela was recommended to me by my daughter. Angela had done an amazing job organising her honeymoon. From start to finish she has listened to my ideas of a dream holiday and made my dreams come true. I have already spoken with her about organising my wedding in Vegas for next year. Angela is like a fairy godmother. I will recommend her to all of my friends. Many thanks.

I can only say that working with Angela to put together my surprise honeymoon vacation for my wife was made easy as Angela was always easy to contact and answered all my questions very quickly. Angela also made many suggestions and offered all types of activities once I have decided on where I was planning on going. I will be using Angela in the future for more holidays. The itinerary was so accurate and detailed with all possible contact details and emergency numbers if required, but all the plans went like clockwork. Thank you Angela for all your support and I look forward to using you again in the near future.

Angela has been extremely helpful in assisting with the organising of our holiday to the Rockies and Alaska. The holiday, planned for April 2014 is a special 60th treat for my wife. We left Angela with a long wish list of things we would like to do and very soon she came back to us with a detailed itinerary for a dream holiday. She provided information, ideas and suggestions that we felt that we would not normally obtain through the usual advertising media. Angela's ideas were so extensive that we were spoilt for choice and decided to go for them all. Our holiday period extended from the initial 2 1/2 weeks to 4 weeks.

Angela is our holiday angel! We usually call up at semi-short notice in need of a holiday and Angela always takes care of us. Over the years Angela has learnt what we do and don't like and is now usually spot-on with her recommendations. All the paperwork arrives together, including printed boarding passes and pre-filled luggage labels for the outbound trip. These small things go a long way when you're short of time and we're always grateful for the help Angela provides. I'd thoroughly recommend her services.

We are too busy to properly plan holidays so we ask Angela to do things for us. Angela listens to what we want and comes up with detailed plans based on the brief. Other agents simply ask where we want to go and what we want to spend. I would recommend Angela to anyone who is time poor or anyone who thinks they would benefit from a detailed knowledge of what holidays are out there across a wide range of countries and activities. Using Angela has worked for us !

I was lucky enough to experience the brand new Iberostar Sabila adults-only hotel, recently refurbished to a very high standard. It was very different to what we would normally go for, but the whole hotel had a lovely open, bright welcoming feel, with beautifully co-ordinated furnishings and lights. The furnishings were very minimal in the lobby - no leaflet stands or clutter - very minimalistic. We were seated for check in and given a drink while the process continued before finding our very bird themed room. As we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, we found our bed decorated...

I felt very lucky to have won a place on this trip as it is perhaps somewhere I would not have chosen to go. And what a great start to be able to enjoy the very long flight via Maldives in Business Class with BA. It certainly allowed us to arrive slightly more refreshed to enjoy the adventure that lay ahead. First stop was Negombo – a beautiful beach resort, which thankfully was only a 30 minute journey and a great place to relax after the flight. Sadly the weather was not good so we didn’t see much of the area....

I was very privileged to be able to go on this unique event (especially as it was the first one in Europe for Avalon). Having never experienced any kind of “river holiday” experience before I was looking forward to enjoying the sights of this part of the world and the experience of a floating hotel. A very early start for the flight to Cologne but I was very impressed with the new facilities at Gatwick and Easy jet procedures and baggage handling efficiency at Cologne. We had a very short transfer to meet the ship which was right in...

I was very lucky recently to travel to Orlando with 50 other travel agents on a jam packed trip – probably a two week holiday crammed into six days! The whole experience was amazing and as I had not been there in 20 years and it made me realise that there is something for everyone, but you don’t need to do everything as there will be more suitable parks depending on the make-up of your family. The first four nights were spent in the Universal Resort, staying at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. From here you can walk or take...

With only an 8 hour flight to get to the most amazing beaches, it really is the place to kick back and chill out. Whether it is a honeymoon or a family holiday, Antigua has something for everyone. With 365 beaches to choose from there is no problem of overcrowding. Staying at Sandals Grande Antigua was truly a VIP experience for me... the rooms were very luxurious and the bathrooms were so opulent I felt like a Queen. The room was a Concierge Category which meant that the full size mini bar was replenished everyday!!! There were many restaurants...

We had never been to the Spanish mainland before as a family; but with a very short flight from Bournemouth, a 15 minute transfer to our hotel in Salou and two small children in tow, it was an ideal choice. With perfectly clean sandy beaches, it was very safe for the children to swim and play in. However, being August the beaches were very busy especially with Spanish people. The weather was perfect with not a rain drop in sight! Salou has all the usual tourist shops but also had a good selection of clothes shops and supermarkets if you wanted...
