Just returned from an Eye opening trip to Dubai. Wow what a place. Everything from top to bottom top quality. I stayed on the JA Palm for All inclusive, to experience this side of Dubai, great for relaxing, with high end standards. Then onto The Address Downtown which is connected to the biggest shopping center, which is just covered in Gold. I also went to the top of the Burj Khalifa and visited several hotels along the Palm as well as experiencing the Water Fountain show, truly magnificent, played Golf on a PGA Course and I also experience the Dune...

For my summer Holiday this year, I was lucky enough to Visit Florida with my family. I stayed on International Drive, in the Crown Plaza hotel with Lounge access, so in the evenings we could kick back and relax. We Visited Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and Aquatic theme parksall of which were special in there own way. My Daughter fell in love with the Harry Potter World in Universal, we walked around 10km per day was exhausting but We made lots of memories here and will be returning very soon.

I was lucky enough to be Invited to a Wedding I had Booked in 5 Star Sani Beach in Halkidiki in Greece. I've never been to Greece before and wow is all I can say. The food was to die for and they couldn't do enough for you. The hotel its self, has several parts, Hotel, Bungalows, Suites all set around a beach and a Marina. It was what we call 'Dine Around' so you had over 40 different places to eat with no extra charge and each I tried was amazing. The Wedding I had arranged went without a hitch...

Achieving My Gold Status for Travel Counsellors, they awarded my by taking my to the Beautiful Mexico. The Sea in Mexico is just like the pictures, aqua blue and like swimming in a Bath. We Stayed in the 5Star Secrets the Vine in Cancun, and did many of the excursions to give me knowledge of the area and trips available to my clients. My favourite being Coco Bongs, which is a super dramatic Show.. The Weather was Glorious, and the Hotel was stunning, with excellent food, and the staff were super attentive.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to stay overnight aboard the brand new Royal Princess cruise ship. It was a fantastic experience. The food was just WOW, and the entertainment was so varied to suit all. The adult only Sanctuary area was beautiful and very tranquil, with beautiful cushioned sunbeds and very inviting Jacuzzi's. The most amazing part of the Royal Princess was its Sky Walk. It is on the main deck and the floor is clear which is quite unique. In general it is very different to any other ship I have been on, so a great experience. I...

I have been lucky enough to recently visit St Lucia, a fantastic holiday destination. We flew out of London Gatwick airport in Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy and were given exclusive use of the First Class Lounge, which was out of this world! The food was outstanding and the service even better. On the flight the Cabin staff were very attentive and helpful. The seats themselves seemed old but the extras that came with it made up for it. The Coconut Bay Beach Resort was just a five minute transfer away, which was great just after the long haul flight. We were welcomed...

My wife and I have used Gilly to book a good few holidays including our honeymoon in the Maldives. Every holiday has been exactly what we’ve asked for. Gilly is absolutely great to deal with, very prompt with good communication and extremely helpful throughout the whole process from choosing a holiday, to the booking and ensuring nothing goes wrong. An awesome ambassador for Travel Counsellors and one we’d definitely recommend (and have done) to anyone!!!!

Gilly is absolutely brilliant. I wouldn't book a holiday with anyone else. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to all my friends and family. She's so professional, friendly and always quick to respond to any questions I may have and is a great problem solver. I've made 2 group bookings with Gilly and she takes all the stress and hassle out of these bookings - which can be pretty stressful and time consuming. I have every confidence in Gilly and will definitely continue to use her in the future!

Gilly has become invaluable to my travel requirements. I value her honesty and her ability to organise exactly what I need, before I know I need it. She is excellent at sorting any problems, if any arise and in a prompt manner. She is extremely professional and to sum up, I don't know how I travelled before I knew Gilly.

After a poor experience with two high street Travel Agents who offered me little flexibility booking a group holiday I decided to call Gilly. From the first minute she put my mind at ease and offered me a range of packages that met my requirements and once I chose one she worked hard to enhance the deal further to my needs; in sum a first rate service I would recommend to any friend or colleague.
