It's Nice To Meet You

Many thanks for visiting my Travel Counsellor page!

My name is Dave Pryde and I am your personal independent Travel Counsellor based in St Fillans in Perthshire. Not only am I lucky enough to live in one of the most picturesque parts of Scotland, I am also privileged to be able to spend my working days indulging in my greatest passion - travel!

Throughout my working life, I've travelled extensively for business purposes. In addition, I have spent holidays in a number of fantastic locations across the globe; Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Corsica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Fuerteventura, The Gambia, Gibraltar, Gozo, Gran Canaria, Greece, (13 different islands and locations) Italy, La Gomera, Lapland, Majorca, Malta, Menorca, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, mainland Spain, Sweden, Trinidad & Tobago, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Zambia, as well as a number of places across the United States of America, including Houston, Las Vegas, New York, Phoenix, Sedona, San Antonio and San Francisco.

I spent many happy hours researching, planning and organising these trips as well as many more for family and friends to all sorts of destinations, both domestic and international.

My extensive experience in all of this means I know just how important it is that, for a trip to be successful, everything has to be thoroughly planned and properly organised. I fully appreciate that you are spending your hard-earned money and I can promise you the highest standard of personal service at all times and when it’s most convenient for you. You are guaranteed my commitment whether it’s a UK mini-break or a holiday of a lifetime.

Your time is precious and if you’ve booked your own trips in the past, you’ll know how long it can take to trawl through pages and pages of offers and alternatives and still not be sure at the end of it all that you’ve got what you wanted!

So, if you’re looking for a first-hand reference on pearling or triking in Oz, a ‘Big 5’ safari or diving with great white sharks in South Africa, a trip to meet the real Santa Claus or maybe a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon or Victoria Falls, why not give me a call and save yourself some time and energy? Rest assured, I will treat your enquiry just as if it were my own.

I look forward to helping you make your travel dreams come true!
