I have been fortunate enough to have cruised on and visited many different ships over the years.

I have offers coming in on a daily basis and am more than happy to advise on the best type of cruise to suit you, whilst confident I will be offering you the best deals around.

I have recently returned from a fabulous holiday on the beautiful island of Kefalonia, which is in the Ionian Sea, west of mainland Greece. We hired a car at the airport. The roads are fairly easy to navigate, and it helped us make the most of the holiday, seeing more of the island. We drove through the mountains, in the middle of the island, on the twisting roads, explored the rugged coast line and beautiful beaches. We visited the magnificent Melissani Cave. It is a lacustrine cave of unique beauty. The sunken lake inside is the most amazing aqua blue. One...

I was very lucky to be included on an educational trip to Cape Town, the Garden Route and Shamwari Game Reserve, hosted by Your Africa, South Africa Airlines and South Africa Tourism. After an indirect flight from Heathrow via Johannesburg we landed in Cape Town. On arrival in Cape Town we were taken on a tour to view the fabulous beach areas of Camps Bay and Clifton just outside the city an idea place to relax and chill at the beginning of a holiday. We visited the wonderfully modern V & A waterfront with it restaurants, bars and modern shopping mall. We...

We flew into Boston airport on Virgin Atlantic in economy class and were smoothly transferred at our hotel the Taj in Boston overlooking the park. It is a five star hotel in a great location. In the rooms, as well as many facilities to make your stay as comfortable as possible, they have a pillow menu. The next day we went on the Duck tour of Boston is a great way to see the city and get your bearings, not a big city but plenty to do and lots of shops. We also visited the Fairmont hotel in Boston and the...

Maggie was amazing and exceeded our expectations. I never envied Maggie the challenge of listening to our various requests from the family members as to where to go and what to do and then consider our budget! To have some options to meet our tailored needs was wonderful. Initially, we were thinking of using Maggie for just this event (20 year wedding anniversary) but now we will set Maggie this task for every holiday as we seek new horizons. Great work Maggie! Thank you, The Judge family of Aylesbury

Amazing service, very informed and felt very reassured that Maggie had listened to my request and found me the best option available to me that matched my requirements. First class service and would most definitely use this service again.

Maggie provided me with as many options as I needed to help me decide on my final itinerary for my trip to Thailand next February. She is very knowledgeable, helpful and prompt in responding to queries and sending through relevant information. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.

Maggie is the best thing that ever happened to us! We spend hours in departure lounges, where people are grumbling about their journeys, I keep telling them to use Maggie, or find their nearest TC and get the best advice available.

Great service from Maggie - sensible, practical advice, always helpful, thought of things I hadn't - and found us a brilliant villa package in Greece at short notice for a week's holiday in peak season with my three teenage companions! Thanks Maggie - would certainly recommend you, and will be using you again.

Thank you for organising our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. As we gently land back in a world of more familiar surroundings and think back on what we have witnessed, with the aid of 3,500 photos, it was the most fantastic experience. Viking was extremely organised, the guides were charming and very well informed, and on one occasion when we went to a killing field outside Phnom Penh we discovered that the guide had actually been in that camp aged 7. I think he was able to cope with his emotions by repeatedly telling the story, as awful as it was.

Maggie was 'onto my case' immediately and within a few hours I was given 3 possible Cruises to choose from, which wasn't easy considering I had given a very small window of dates - so I was very happy with the result and now look forward to the "experience". I feel I am in safe hands so thank-you.

11/10 wasn't available or Maggie would've scored it! Maggie gives 110% of effort without it appearing effortful... She makes holiday and business bookings a pleasure. Smoothing out the bumps, foreseeing and dealing with all and any issues that arise, someone in New Zealand said to me "are you sure you haven't got her in your handbag? I would, I'd keep her close to hand", my husband replied "we don't need to, she calls us, wherever we are, before we've even heard there is a problem"! He was referring to the Icelandic dust-storm episode, TC were ahead of the game even then.

Maggie always comes up trumps with a holiday for us. This time we were being very fussy and indecisive but she has found something which will suit both my husband and myself and within our price bracket. We would recommend Maggie every time anyone wants to book a holiday.
