It's Nice To Meet You

John Watson - Travel Counsellor & CLIA Cruise Master.

I specialise in cruise and tailor-made holidays crafted with care.

Travel Counsellors was founded in 1994 and I have been a part of the company since 2004. During this time, I have made many customers’ dreams and aspirations a reality, from simple city breaks to full worldwide cruises.

Caring for my customers is at the heart of everything I do and this is why my customers choose to book time-and-time again with me; plus also recommend me to their friends and family.

I have been fortunate to share my passion for travel by working in travel related roles all my adult life. Prior to joining Travel Counsellors, I was a manager for a well-known high street travel retailer.

Travel Counsellors are the only travel agency to be awarded the Queens Award for Enterprise and have been voted "Best Travel Agency" by readers of The Guardian and The Observer newspapers, four out of the last five years.

Your money is 100% safe and is protected financially by ATOL and the unique Travel Counsellors Trust, giving you total peace of mind. No other travel agency offers you this full protection.

My specialist area is in cruise holidays offered by all the world’s leading cruise lines and I am an accredited cruise agent with ‘Master Status’ - the highest accolade given by the Cruise Lines International Association, the world’s largest cruise industry trade association.

Chances are that I have first-hand knowledge of a ship you might like to try, so speak to me before you book that trip of lifetime! This could be aboard a ship with just 50-100 like-minded passengers to the Galapagos Islands, a cruise in search of the Northern Lights or aboard the very latest mega-ships. Many of my clients have also taken advantage of the growth and convenience of 'No fly cruises' or 'EX UK Cruises' from regional UK ports.

I also offer tailor-made holidays to your specification including city breaks, beach holidays, long-haul and escorted tours.

My own travels have taken me as far afield as Thailand, Malaysia, Borneo, Kenya, the Caribbean Islands and the USA - not to mention a whole host of favourites closer to home.

Many thanks for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to making your travel aspirations a reality.

Bon voyage.
