Budapest is one of those cities that constantly ranks in various top ten lists, yet it’s still hardly visited by many travellers. After seeing so many amazing pictures, I finally decided to make a stop there on my most recent Euro trip. With stunning architecture, refreshing thermal baths, and a culture that can be unique, Budapest lives up to its reputation. Many travellers have yet to commit to Budapest due to old fears. It’s part of Eastern Europe so people tend to have misconceptions of what to expect. English is very commonly spoken, and I assure you there is no communism here. It’s a must visit for tourists looking for something a little off the beaten path. Whether you are looking for a romantic weekend break, or a cultural historic adventure, Budapest offers it all. I was extremely lucky to have stayed in the Boscolo Hotels which has been named the most beautiful café in the world. I felt like I was in St Paul's Cathedral, definitely worth a visit for high tea if not an overnight stay. Make sure you bring your walking shoes. We did the hop on hop off and saw every attraction that was listed. However jumping off and exploring the amazing streets and buildings adds to the mileage you will accumulate. Eating and drinking will not drain the Bank. We had a knight out in the Jewish quarter with all the quirky ruin bars and spent between £1.75 and £2.00 a pint and less for a glass of wine.

Downtown Toronto Attractions

20 October 2016

Toronto is Canada’s most populous city – and one of the world’s most fascinating destinations. There is so much to do, see, and experience here that you are truly spoiled for choice. I recently stayed at The Hotel Victoria’s prime location in the city’s downtown district puts excellent shopping, delicious dining, and exciting cultural attractions right at your fingertips. I loved spending time at the Hockey Hall of Fame, Canada’s favourite sport, which was founded in 1943 to honour both those who helped to develop it and the stars of the modern era. You can also pick up all your souvenir's here, a one stop shop! If you love shopping don't miss out on the Eaton Center. With its magnificent glass galleria and well over 230 shops and restaurants, the Toronto Eaton Centre is an experience not to be missed. It’s connected to the Bay, Canada's largest general merchandise retailer, and newcomers Saks and Nordstrom’s. The harbour front has so much to offer, you will be spoiled for choice with international cuisine, or grab a Tim Hortons and walk along the front and take in the fresh air and view of Lake Ontario.

My customer stories

Glynis, I can’t thank you and Travel Counsellors enough for planning and being a huge part of our special Silver Wedding Anniversary holiday celebrations in New York and Orlando. The friendly and efficient service you provided us was way beyond exceptional, from all the correspondence involved, to the more personal touches like the room upgrades and the postcards, fizz and chocolates you sent to our home. Oh and I can’t forget the lovely travel wallet too! You were there for us 24/7 and nothing was too much trouble (even during the Monarch crisis!). Your knowledge of New York ensured the perfect hotel in a perfect location, your recommendiations on what to do there made our choices so much easier and your patience with us on deciding where to stay in Orlando was admirable!! So one big final thank you, it’s been lovely getting to know you and I really couldn’t have done it without you!!

Mike and I would like to say a huge thank you for organising our holiday of a life time. The support, advice and guidance you gave us from the minute we contacted you, right through to our two month holiday and even after we arrived home was fantastic. You were there at the end of the phone, day or night, to sort out minor issues. This enabled us to relax and truly enjoy our epic journey flying around the world and visiting six different countries. Once again a massive thank you and we are looking forward to contacting you once again for our next adventure.

Glynis has fantastic customer service and really goes that extra mile for you. She is always on the end of the phone when you need her. Even when I was stuck at my hotel with no transport back to the airport, she was there helping me, even though it was very early on a Saturday morning/ I will definately book again. Thanks Glynis xx

Glynis is so patient. When you're looking for that special holiday a year out when flights aren't even available, she keeps you motivated and you trust her. She is the professional that's why you can't get the deals she can. I am so happy with our itinerary. Thank you Glynis.
