I would like to thank Marisa for coming to the rescue when our holiday was cancelled due to the other travel company going bankrupt. Her expert advice helped us recover all our money. I am looking forward to my new holiday safe in the knowledge that we will be with a company that looks after its customers, from the start of our booking until the end of our holiday and protects us in these uncertain times.

I was very fortunate to have been invited to stay at the stunning Daios Cove in Crete in Oct 2011 and thought I would share my experience with you here. Daios Cove is a stunning 5* Spa Resort set in its own private beachfront location minutes from the bustling market town of Agios Nikoloas in the North East of the island. Nestling on a hillside with views that change as the daylight sun moves around the resort, you will never tire of sitting on your own private balcony with personal infinity pool until the setting sun gives way to...

I was invited to join the Queen Mary II for part of her commemoration voyage around the British Isles to celebrate her 5th Birthday. We departed Southampton and included ports of call in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Cork and Cherbourg. She is such a beautiful ship and will surely make you reminisce to a grander age when sailing in such luxury and opulence was a pastime afforded only by the rich. Filled to the brim with restaurants, a grand theatre, ballrooms and a truly fascinating planetarium, I loved my chance to explore the decks, seek out the nooks and crannies...

Egypt... Why is it that I have visited this country more times than any other I have visited in the world? Because it is special. Every aspect of Egypt is enchanting, mesmeric and I have never received a warmer welcome than here. I first went to Egypt 20 years ago, Hurghada was no more than a handful of buildings in a small street and the beach one long stretch of sand peppered with remnants of tanks and metal left over from battles. I went back to Hurghada 10 years later and didn’t know it! I saw no beach as...

There is something to suit everyone and I tried almost everything when there in order to be able to let you, my customers utilise this information to ensure your own holiday is just as perfect. The first of my trips saw me fly into San Francisco and stay at Fishermans Wharf for a couple of nights. The area is lively and full of character. Lots of little seafood cabins and restaurants ranging from top notch...
