It's Nice To Meet You

Hello, and welcome to my web page.

I am proud to say that I love my job and I love to travel.!. I have been helping clients with their holiday arrangements for over 26 years,

I have been fortunate enough to travel to many destinations all over the world., Australia, Canada, Cuba, Antigua, Jamaica, Egypt, Hong Kong, Mauritius,and the Maldives to mention a few, and also experienced several cruises.

Why book with me? As an expert I check holidays every day so I know the best deals available. Plus, you can have complete financial peace of mind as everything booked with me is 100% financially guaranteed through our unique Travel Counsellors Trust fund.

I particularly specialise in long haul, cruises, and tailor made itineraries, but I am also very happy to arrange hotel stays or holidays in the U.K. and Europe.

My clients appreciate the fact that they will only speak to me and can contact me when its convenient for them, not like the High Street agencies - only open 9-5.30., which results in my customers returning back to me time and time again.

Thank you for visiting my web page and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Warm Regards..

I absolutely live and breathe travel and I love to write about my experiences! Please take a look through my posts - you might find your own holiday inspiration.


20 September 2013

With 365 beaches and only an 8 hour flight away, Antigua is the place to kick off your shoes and chill out. I stayed at grand Pineapple Beach for 1 week in a tropical waterfront room – wonderful to wake up to views of the beach and ocean. This is a small resort, with very friendly staff, a wonderful speciality restaurant and the unique ‘Outhouse’ for panoramic views and midday snacks. The second week was spent at the Verandah (right next door!) but it was a totally different. Very large, spread out over many acres – you can call for a buggy to get you around the resort, or get exercise by walking! Accommodation is in delightful semi-detached villas. I spent a full day going round the island by catamaran which was interesting and exhilarating where the ocean meets the calmer sea! You can take a trip to Barbuda, pink sands for miles and also the habitat of frigate birds. Nelson’s Dockyard is definitely worth a visit for its maritime history, and Shirley Heights on a Sunday for a party atmosphere, the taste of local food and of course – music! It was my third visit to Antigua, and I hope it will not be my last.

River Cruise in Europe

22 February 2013

Would you like to visit some cities without having to fly between them, and also experience fine dining without having to go out to look for restaurants? If the answer is yes, then you need to look no further than a River Cruise. I was lucky enough to be invited to experience one by A.P.T. a specialist in Australian & N/Zealand tours, and European River cruises. We flew into Salzburg, then joined our ship, the 5* MS Amalyra for our journey down the Danube.Next was the elegant city of Vienna, where you spend the whole day enjoying the sights, and you can even attend an optional concert. Onwards to Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia for an afternoon,then the following morning experience the grand sail into Budapest for the final full day, where a visit to the Opera House is a must. All excursions are included and the food on board is superb. This is a wonderful alternative to ocean cruises, and its not just the Danube, there are cruises on the Rhine, Rhone, and in France, Spain, Portugal and Russia.

Heavenly Hong Kong

10 October 2011

I was lucky enough to have an educational visit to the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Fabulous views of Hong Kong can be seen from the Peak, which is reached by the exciting funicular railway. I loved travelling across from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island on the Star Ferry in the evening and seeing the amazing light displays. The floating harbour at Aberdeen is a must, where local people live on board their boats. What a place to shop! From getting bargains at Stanley Market to sophisticated designer stores in the shopping malls. The food was amazing - it is so worth trying a typical Cantonese restaurant. Also worth trying is the Russian Ice Bar, where you literally don fur coats and hats and enter a fridge to drink shots of vodka!! Quite hilarious! Hong Kong has something for everyone, even Disneyworld - fantastic for a city break or a stopover en route to Australia. You will not be disappointed.

Carol made choosing and booking our honeymoon very stress free at a time when wedding plans amongst other everyday work and chores were keeping us very busy. From the moment we spoke Carol knew exactly what we were looking for which we were very surprised by and also extremely grateful. Thank you so much, we cannot wait to go!

Carol was a God send..we were planning a trip down the Nile for my wife’s 60th. This was cancelled very late due to the troubles, which left us needing to put in place an alternative at short notice. Carole searched diligently keeping us regularly informed, coming up with different and surprising alternatives. Carol not only worked efficiently, she displayed patience and empathy as our parameters shifted and changed. I cannot thank Carol enough and would recommend her services without reservation.

The idea of Travel Counsellors, is a good one, equating to relationship managers at banks, where I have one person to contact and the person has a good understanding of your needs and requirements.

I am very open, I will also look around, but on many occasions, not all, Carol has had my business. I am pleased to be associated with this company and with Carol.

Once again, we had a wonderful holiday; our ‘three-centre’ trip to the Middle East was delightful – a great mix of luxury, relaxation and sightseeing. Thank you so much for the totally stress-free experience. From the point of booking until we returned home, the whole process was seamless. Moreover, we know that in the unlikely event of problems, you are always there, day or night, to offer practical support and guidance. Thank you! Please pass this message to your Senior Management – you are an incredible asset to TC. Thank you also for the delightful flowers that arrived this morning – a wonderful gesture. Enjoy your forthcoming travels. Warm regards, Adrian & Anna.

Her experience and never-failing patience results in her providing the holiday of your dreams and we are so grateful to have found her.

Carol has been arranging travel for me for about 3 years now and is always my first port of call and usually the last too as she arranges everything so well at fair prices and where ever i travel. Her honest friendly service is of great help to me and one one occasion when i had a slight problem in Thailand at a hotel one quick call to carol and everything was sorted out in under 5 minutes, having service like that when so far away from home is of great comfort to me. My only wish is that i had come across Carol years ago. Many thanks for all your help Carol my holidays just wouldnt be the same without you.

Once again, Carol you have provided the ideal holiday for us, your expertise at identifying exactly what we want from the garbled information we gave is amazing and we had a fabulous holiday trekking in Thailand.

Dear Carol We wanted to write to say a huge thank you for organising our dream honeymoon to Hawaii and Las Vegas. You were so patient when we would ring each day to suggest a new destination: you were a fantastic source of knowledge and ideas and for this we will be forever grateful. When we eventually selected our holiday you organised every last detail of our trip ensuring that we could just sit back and look forward to our time away. We had an amazing time in Hawaii and Las Vegas and would love to go back, so we better start saving!!! We have and will continue to recommend you to everyone I know and cannot praise you highly enough. We have told our friends to call you, if just to find out about the service you provide as we firmly believe they will not get a better service or price anywhere else, so far you have not been wrong! A huge thank you once again for arranging our honeymoon; you made our life before the wedding a whole lot less stressful and we are looking forward to organising many more holidays with you in the stop Paris!!!!! Take care Tom & Camilla
