I have over 20 years travel experience; from working front of house in hotels to travelling the world working on board large cruise liners, selling corporate travel and working for a major tour operator. I have organised everything from retail travel, long-haul and short-haul excursions right through to tailor-made packages. I have managed all kinds of customer requirements, both before and during travel to ensure all needs are catered for. I can find the best flights and accommodation to suit your needs and advise any information regarding passports, visas, immunisations and any other destination requirements.
Having travelled extensively I can offer first-hand experience of many countries and their varied cultures and traditions. Whether it’s the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Wall of China, the Statue of Christ, The Great Barrier Reef, the Grand Canyon, lights of Las Vegas, an African Safari, whale watching in Alaska or even a midnight alligator hunt in the Amazon, I have the memories and knowledge to help you plan the trip of your dreams. I can tell you about Bora Bora, Madagascar, the Maldives and Hawaii. If it’s the Far East, Australasia, North & South America, Europe or the Caribbean you’re after, I’m here to help. For the snow lovers, I have tumbled down the pistes of Switzerland, France, Turkey and Andorra.
I have also lived overseas with my family in Istanbul, an amazing city bordering East and West with its famed Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Grand Bazaar and Spice Market. Turkey itself is a wonderful country with fantastic all -inclusive holiday options as well as the beautiful black mountains and historical sites, such as Ephesus and Cappadocia.

Just back from an amazing three day trip to Venice with, two of my nieces, which was organised by Mary. Completely hassle free. Mary organised everything, and advised me as to the location of the hotel (taking into account my terrible sense of direction). We were upgraded to a suite in the hotel, which was incredible, and made the whole stay much more pleasant. Thank you Mary, we will definitely be calling on you again for our next trip. X

Mary was brilliant. She really understood exactly what we were looking for, came within our budget range and we felt absolutely no pressure at all whilst we made our final decisions for our family break. Mary also saved me so much time from having to research so many possibilities whilst running my own business and juggling a busy family life. Time is so precious today and this was wonderful to have that added pressure taken away from me.

Working with Mary to plan our Indian adventure was nothing but a pleasure. Mary is knowledgable, very friendly and helpful. She made planning and finding our dream holiday a reality. We have also booked a city weekend and this too was organized fully by Mary. All you do is tell her what you are looking for and what your budget is and Mary does the rest. Absolutely would use this service again and planning travel will never be stressful again. Very competitive rates, speedy and efficient service and excellent communications throughout. Highly recommended.

Having learnt to ski with the boys I do still feel like Bridget Jones on the slopes, but I give it a try and feel I am now thankfully in control and hopefully looking a little more graceful! We have skied in many destinations, Switzerland, Andorra, France, Austria and even in Turkey, most recently having stayed at Club Med Aime La Plagne over the New Year period into 2018. Club Med all-inclusive ski holidays are well worth considering. Whilst the initial cost may look on the high side, when you break it down, it does represent great value for money. All...

Beautiful Turkey where East meets West! Having recently lived in Istanbul for 3 years with my family, we all loved our experience of Turkey, the wonderful people, culture and amazing food. My husband went to work, the boys went to the British International school and I was left to explore the wonderful city of Istanbul! Whilst Ankara is the country’s capital, Istanbul is its economic heart and home to almost 18 million of Turkey’s 75 million population. I have been ‘tour guide’ to our many friends and relatives who visited us, I never got bored wondering through the Grand Bazaar and enjoying...

I have recently returned from our family holiday to Florida. A full-on holiday with some amazing experiences that have given us memories to last a life time. We decided to stay in an apartment at the Sheraton Vistana Villages Resort on i-drive. It’s a great compromise between a private villa and a hotel. We stayed in a large two-bedroom apartment, which included two excellent en-suite bathrooms, a full fitted kitchen including a washer and dryer, a decent lounge area and a large private balcony. The complex has a restaurant, shop, gym, three swimming pools and tennis courts, all set in...
