Hello, I’m Ian a Travel Counsellor based by the sea on the beautiful North Norfolk coast. I'm here to help you get the most out of your holidays and travel with the least amount of your own time invested into making it happen. I do that by using my expertise to plan amazing holidays and personally taking care of every detail.
I’ve been working in and around the travel industry for over 25 years and during that time been fortunate enough to visit some amazing places in over 50 countries and counting. Briefly, here are some of my favourites:
Favourite Long-Haul Destination - Barbados. There is something very special about Barbados, a “vibe” that, in my opinion, is unlike any other Caribbean island. I love the restaurants up and down the west coast from fine dining at The Cliff and Tides to the rustic Annie’s Rib Shack in Holetown. It’s a place I’d be happy to return to again and again.
Favourite Short-Haul Destination - Mallorca. This island has a special place in my heart, from memories of my own holidays as a child in Puerto Pollensa to taking my own children there on their first holidays. I’ve been a frequent visitor, making lifelong friends and seeing parts of this beautiful place not on the tourist trail.
Favourite Cruise - The Far East. Our cruise started in Singapore and finished in Hong Kong with Holland & America making several stops in Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand along the way. A cruise is a fantastic way of getting a taste of a destination that you might want to visit for longer another time.
Best Hotel I’ve Stayed In – Banyan Tree Seychelles. My wife and I spent 10 nights at this stunning hotel situated on what is regarded as one of the world’s best beaches. The main building is a converted colonial style house formerly owned by George Harrison and Peter Sellars with villas dotted along the hillside and along the beach where we stayed. If you’re looking for a place for total relaxation or a honeymoon maybe, it’s hard to top.
It’s a privilege to be entrusted with planning someone’s holiday and so I take care as if it were my own trip. Available 24/7 and providing a personal service that is second to none and of course some extras you simply won’t find anywhere else.
The world is full of amazing places... you should go, and I’d love to plan it for you.
Best wishes and hopefully speak soon
