Thank you for visiting my web page.
I'm Julie, an independent travel agent based in Beverley, East Yorkshire - a beautiful market town famous for its Minster and racecourse. I'm originally from Sheffield, and married with two daughters. I have over 18 years of travel experience, 13 with a high street travel agent, and will only give you my honest, best advice.
I have first-hand knowledge of many exciting destinations and still have many more to see. I have experience of European beaches, especially those throughout Spain, the Canaries and Turkey. I've cruised Mexico, the West Med and Adriatic. I have travelled to the West and East coasts of America - and absolutely love Florida (I can give you the best tips!)
I've been to parts of Australia, recently returning from Sydney/Melbourne with so much to see and do, once returning via Fiji. I have been skiing in Canada, visiting Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise and Vancouver. I have travelled through Italy by rail - visiting Venice, Florence and Rome - and driven the Amalfi Coast with Sorrento, an absolute must! I have also been to many of the Caribbean islands. Even a Sound of Music bicycle tour in Salzburg, essential for any film fan!
I love football, and have supported Sheffield United for many years, and this season have just been promoted to the Premiership and well deserved, Bramall Lane being my second home. My bucket list included Hong Kong which I visited two years ago. It was fabulous and lived up to my expectations. Next on the list is South America, Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
I'm very passionate about all things travel and will always ensure you get the very best service and attention at all times as if it was my own holiday.
If you need someone who will take great care for your holiday from beginning to end, you need look no further. I can save you a great deal of time, money and hassle. Please do not hesitate to contact me, either by calling for a chat or sending me a message from the links on my website.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so please either fill in and send the form below or simply give me a call and I can get things started for you:-

We've booked with Julie over a number of years now, service has always been exceptional, we usually ask for something slightly different to the norm, and she has always delivered. We have already recommend her to friends, who now book with Julie, and will continue to do so.

We have been booking holidays, 3 and 4 holidays per year since 2004 and have never had one iota of trouble/problem in all that time. Julie is one of those people that always goes that bit further to make sure she deliver's what you would like. She is knowledgeable about many destinations and air travel, even filling out luggage labels, printing boarding passes etc. Always an easy booking experience. Thank you Julie .

Rome is Italy’s capital city with nearly 3000 years of influential art, architecture and ancient ruins. Known as the Eternal City, it's so romantic and spectacular; breathtaking, timeless, enchanting, happy, and picturesque. The top sights are the Colosseum, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, St Peters Basilica, Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museums, and many more. I recommend at least 3 nights to make the most of a fabulous break away. We arrived into Ciampino airport to be met by our driver, who gave us a guided tour to our hotel, the Visconti Palace. The hotel was ideally situated for walking to various famous...

The title says it all; Florida has everything from sun to theme parks, beaches, shopping and food - the list goes on. We hired a mini van, then made our way to a beautiful Lake facing, 5 bedroom Villa. We visited all the theme parks, shopped till we dropped and ate at some fab restaurants. One day we went across to Clearwater, which had the most softest sand ever - and swam with dolphins! For Harry Potter fans, you must visit Florida! We found Disney Springs, recently opened, an evening entertainment area. There was so much going on -music, live bands, shops, and restaurants....

We boarded the Emirates flight to Hong Kong, a lovely experience with comfortable seats, lovely food and plenty of legroom. We arrived into Hong Kong, boarding their fast metro into the city where we took the shuttle bus to the Harbour Grand Hotel. We had booked a room with a harbour view which was very spacious and had a fabulous breakfast. It's very easy to get into the city too using their own shuttle bus. Must-do trips whilst in Hong Kong: - A ride on the cable car to Ngong Ping/take the tram up to Victoria Peak and some retail therapy in...
