Hi, I’m Gemma, a Travel Counsellor living in a beautiful village in rural Cambridgeshire with my husband Paul.
My love of travel started young; at 18 I embarked on my first solo trip to Australia and New Zealand where I spent a year travelling and working, it gave me such an understanding of why people fall in love with exploring the world. I knew I wanted to work within the travel industry and have since gained over 20 years’ experience. Tailoring holidays using a variety of top-class hotels to unique B&B’s, tours and local experiences to suit all budgets.
I offer a true one-to-one personalised travel service. I love getting to know people and pride myself in taking time to understand your likes and dislikes to create unique travel plans. Booking a holiday is an enjoyable and exciting experience. I will work hard for you, offer expert advice in getting the trip right and making sure every detail is correct and your trip is hassle free. In addition to this, everything you book is 100% financially protected against supplier failure by either ATOL or the Travel Counsellors Trust, giving you absolute peace of mind.
Holidays are all about experiences and creating memories that last a lifetime. Whilst working within the industry I have been fortunate to experience numerous different countries myself. My memorable travel experiences include; shark cage diving in Cape Town, exploring New Zealand by camper van, learning about Elephant conservation in Thailand, enjoying the music of the Deep South in America, riding desert dunes in Dubai, learning to cook in Vietnam, snorkelling with turtles in the Maldives and snowshoeing in Quebec.
Whatever your travel requirements may be, I will be delighted to be helping you to explore the world, making life-long memories. Just give me a call or drop me an email and I can help you start your next adventure.
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:

She was very helpful to someone who had given up on the internet finding the info I needed! So now we are looking forward to our holiday. Many thanks.

Gemma is so thoughtful and helpful, and considers every detail that might contribute to us having the perfect break. The more she gets to know us, the better able she is to tailor the ideal holiday, and to the amount of money we have to spend at that time! We cannot recommend her services enough - talk about making life a reassuring breeze, with a comforting e-smile! ??????

Gemma has booked some holidays for us long haul in the past and we were always happy with the service, this time it was a short haul holiday, she listened to what we wanted and gave us 3 options, all fitted our brief. In the end we chose the Rhodes option, and the hotel and resort did not disappoint. Gemma provides an excellent service, I didn't even need to write on my luggage tags it was all done and sent to me. I would be very pleased to recommend Gemma to anyone she is like a human search engine, but with the personal touch that is missing from these type of sites.

Gemma is very helpful and fully flexible to my changeable needs. She goes the 'extra mile' when needed to deliver the best result.

I contacted Gemma to book a trip away. She listened to what I wanted, answered my questions, then sent me a couple of flights and made my booking. The booking process was very easy and I know she is at the end of a phone should I need her. I would certainly recommend her to others.

We contacted Gemma to tailor make our China tour. By using her wealth of knowledge, she came up with a great itinerary that included all of our requests but also some places that we had not considered. She always answers any type of communication promptly in a professional and friendly manner, We wouldn't use anyone else apart from Gemma!

Fantastic service. Excellent options given and very adaptable to our requirements
Sent by Hannah Grosvenor
Following a brilliant initial conversation with Gemma, discussing exactly what I was looking to achieve from my trip, Gemma researched and pulled together a great proposal for my trip to South America and South East Asia. Being a bit of a novice at all this, Gemma completely understood my specific requirements (a pain free booking process) and arranged me the exact journey I wanted to achieve and more! Gemma's experience and knowledge of world wide arrangements and various operators has made the whole process for me so much easier. I would (and have already) recommend Gemma for anyone's travels needs. Thank you Gemma!

I was referred to Gemma by a friend and I'm so glad we booked our honeymoon to Australia with her. Her knowledge was fantastic and the recommendations on where to go were brilliant. The amazing trips to the Great Barrier Reef and the Sydney Bridge climb made our trip. Knowing Gemma was there really put my mind at rest and I have booked my next trip to New York with her. Thank you Gemma

From initial enquiry to finally returning to the UK, Gemma’s bubbly personality made it a pleasure to book our special trip to Thailand. Her knowledge was excellent she recommended places she felt we would like having listened to what we wanted to do and she was spot-on.
Gemma endeavoured to get the best prices for our trip as we were travelling at peak time and she gave us options of places to stay so we could choose what suited us best. In all she understood what we wanted from our holiday and then took all the legwork out of doing it ourselves.
We would certainly use Gemma again her knowledge after many years in the industry was so helpful.
