Question - so why a personal Travel Counsellor?
Answer - Well I treat my clients seriously. I want first to understand you, your needs and that of your travelling companions. If there is a criticism of "packaged holidays" then it is assuming everyone is pigeonholed. Neither Travel Counsellors nor I think that way. You have worked hard for your holiday or break, you - and your family and friends - are unique and so are your requirements.
You deserve good honest advice and should benefit from the experience I have to offer.
Travel Counsellors provide me with the very best in leading edge technology and hundreds of especially negotiated contracts with hotels, cruise lines, airlines and operators.
Q - Work on my own?
Hardly, my back-up is a superb team of experts at Head Office, including another 1,300 more, experienced Travel Counsellors worldwide.
Q- Where could I recommend?
I have extensive European experience in just about every country in or bordering the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands & Madeira.
Many multi-centred experiences across America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Fascinating journeys into the Far East including Japan, the Middle East plus seven different Safari experiences in Southern Africa.
Add to that a host of cities, cruising, skiing in two continents, golf and outdoor experiences from sailing to heli hiking. High in the list of many other interests an appreciation of and where to find good food and wine.
After 40 years in the industry I delight in sharing this with YOU my clients - and friends - which in my book become the same.
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:-
I absolutely live and breathe travel and I love to write about my experiences! Please take a look through my posts - you might find your own holiday inspiration.

This October I was extremely fortunate to visit Canada with 23 other Travel Counsellors. Canada has always been on my list of destinations I must return to and this this trip was amazing. Our base for the first four nights was the Rosedale on Robson Suites. Perfectly located in this beautiful city where nothing is too far away. Being October, we had the pleasure of seeing the city as all the colours were changing, but there isn't a wrong time to visit. Vancouver prides itself as a city that combines the sea and the mountains and it’s easy to see why...

My daughter (11) and I have just returned from a fab 3 weeks in Oz (Cairns, Alice Springs,+ Sydney). Jim organised all the various flights, accommodation, visas and a last minute panic passport problem. He worked above + beyond for us. We just went off and had a brilliant time - snorkelling, diving, jungle surfing, riding, off road adventures and city explorations. Yet another great trip thanks to Jim.

Jim is efficient, has in-depth knowledge of most countries and is well able to guide you to a destination you had probably not considered. He ensures your holiday meets all your needs and he offers a very personal service. He pays great attention to detail and will happily scour the world to come up with an exciting destination He managed to have us drive through Swaziland- wonderful!!
From the pristine white-sand beaches of Thailand’s idyllic islands to the sprawling wide-open roads of the USA; the historic and breathtakingly beautiful architecture of India to the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Maldives – there’s a world of wonder out there and it’s just waiting to be explored.
