It's Nice To Meet You


Hi, I'm John, a Travel Counsellor based in Hornchurch, Essex, the place I've called home all my life when I've not been off exploring the world.

My family run a beautiful vintage tea shop in town where I'm happy to meet and discuss your travel plans over a cuppa.

I've passionately worked in travel for many years, creating bespoke round the world itineraries for everyone from budget-minded gap year students to the retired and restless happily blowing the kids' inheritance. I'm here to help with all your travel needs and make booking a trip a stress-free pleasure rather than a chore.

My own travels have been diverse, to say the least. I've dined with monks in Tibet, swam with penguins in the Galapagos, studied Spanish in Guatemala and searched for Dracula in the heart of Romania. It's what I love about travel, the sheer range, and variety.

I specialise in the Americas, from Canada all the way down to Patagonia. I fell in love with South America from a young age because it’s so full of energy, culture and natural wonder. Colombia is my absolute favourite country. As an American sports enthusiast, I've also spent a lifetime flying Stateside, taking in a ball game and driving coast to coast. But I can assist with all corners of the globe.

I take pride in my travellers having an incredible time. So not only do you gain more professionalism and security arranging your travels through me, but it's a far more personal experience that you just don't find on the high street or online.

I've always believed that nothing can create stories or memories quite like travel, so if you want to make your next adventure, feel free to get in touch.
