I am a Travel Counsellor living in Chalfont St Giles. Chalfont St Giles is a great place to live; a great community, in a lovely area including fantastic Bluebell woods, and great schools. My husband and I have lived in the area for over 20 years and our sons grew up and went to school locally, even though they are grown up one or other or both of them periodically live with us. As someone who loves travel, being close but not too close to all forms of transport, airports, ports, channel tunnel and Central London for the Eurostar and evenings out is an added benefit.
I love organising travel and holidays for others. Whether it is a once in a lifetime holiday to New Zealand, a luxury cultural city break for two in Nice, or a big family ski trip (dog and grandparents included) I can organize it, leaving you free to look forward and enjoy your trip.
Cruising is one of my specialities and with the number of different cruise lines, destinations and inclusive options available I will be happy to discuss which would be most suitable for your needs. Due to my husband being a very keen sailor, I have organised sailing trips for us to Greece, Turkey, The British Virgin Islands and my favourite, Tobago Cays in St Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean, ( where swimming with turtles and rays was magical). This has given me first hand experience with the logistics of wind powered travel as well as an intimate knowledge of the aforementioned areas.
For me being a Travel Counsellor means that I am there for you, and not just during office hours. I will be able to offer you impartial advice and help you find the best travel option to suit your needs as well as exceptional customer service tailored to your requirements. Whether it is a last minute quick getaway somewhere sunny, or a precisely planned trip to Antarctica I will be delighted to find the travel solution to meet your needs.
Please contact me to discuss any of your forthcoming travel arrangements.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-

Anne - Marie was absolutely brilliant and cannot thank her enough for such a marvelous find for our summer family holiday. With a pregnant wife and twin boys under 2 there were many boxes that needed to be ticked. She worked non stop offering several choices and the final destination came in under budget!! Will be recommending and using Anne - Marie whenever possible.

Dear Annemarie, Thank you so much for helping me on my recent surprise birthday trip for my wife to Santorini. Very discreet in the preperation, wonderful hotel, beautiful location and a super chreap runabout car to explore the island. Everything was perfect until we landed and found our luggage had been left at Gatwick. Even though you hadn't booked the flight you still took the problem personallty and tried to assist in the recovery of the luggage whilst my wife just thought it was a great excuse to go shopping. All in all a great trip and I would happily recommend your services, Thanks again, Fraser Welling
