Koh Samui - All
Are you tired of trawling the internet in search of travel that exactly meets your needs, whether for business or leisure, flights, hotels or car hire? Have you found yourself becoming increasingly frustrated by the lack of information and personal service from doing it yourself? It’s time to consider getting your own free of charge Personal Travel Counsellor.
Hello, I’m Matt Tamayo-Myerson and I’m passionate about travel and the fantastic experiences and opportunities it brings. I’ve been a Personal Travel Consultant for over 14 years, and throughout my life and career I’ve built up a wealth of knowledge and experienced a huge range of different travel products and services. I’ve been on a charity expedition to Namibia, hitch-hiked around Zimbabwe and South Africa, flown on Concorde to New York and flown a Russian Mig 25 Fighter Jet to the edge of space, slept under trees and stayed in the 7* Burj Al Arab, Dubai.
I’ve lived in Spain and Australia and spent extended time in the USA, Southern Africa and South East Asia. I specialise in tailor-made travel, particularly the Indian Ocean (Maldives, Mauritius and Seychelles) be it a same day return for a business meeting or a complex multi-stop honeymoon, and regularly save people £1000's on short duration trips.
Using sophisticated software, I can organise your trip in a fraction of the time it would take you online, saving you both time and money, and with over 500 suppliers as well as direct flight and hotel contracts we can bring you the best the industry has to offer. It’s also possible to book flights originating from outside the UK and I have a number of clients based abroad.
We pride ourselves on getting to know our customers and their needs, and offer the personal touch, with service that starts from the moment you contact me, to the moment you return from your trip. We have highly competitive fares on travel arrangements, and are open 24/7 for emergencies.
Finally, for your peace of mind, with our unique Travel Counsellors Trust, your money is 100% financially protected in case of supplier failure.

I would like to thank you for such fabulous service when hiring our car in France over Christmas and the New Year. Not only did we get an amazing price but I discovered my brother in law paid 60% more for five days less hire! That’s what I call service! I have already started telling all my friends to use you whenever they have the opportunity! Superstar! Thanks again.

We decided to book a last minute trip to Thailand at short notice to meet up with friends. I felt very out of my comfort zone as it is not a part of the world I know so we decided to ask Matt to help us. I am so glad we did! He was so calm and confident at arranging every aspect of our trip, never losing patience with my need to have everything covered and really listening to what was important to us in making it the holiday we want and need. He is friendly and professional, works incredibly hard and we will certainly be calling on his expertise in the future. Thanks Matt.

This is a recommendation for anybody who wants travel and bookings to be made easy. Then Matt Tamayo-Myerson of Gold Travel Counsellors is your man! Have just returned from Florence where he took care of everything from flights and hotel booking and sorted out us being picked up and taken to the hotel. It all went really well. Highly recommended!

I just wanted to pop a quick email through to say a massive thank you for organising the most amazing honeymoon for us. We had the time of our lives in Kenya and Zanzibar - it couldn't have been anymore perfect. The Sarova hotels were wonderful and made a perfect base for our safaris - everything about them from the staff, the rooms and the food were superb. And I don't even know where to start about Pongwe - absolutely idyllic. Sad to be back home now, but we are definitely looking to go back to Africa again! Again, thank you so much. It was the most stress-free holiday we have ever had - only problem is.... I think we got a bit too used to the luxury. Going to be hard to get back to our hosteling ways!
With independent access to thousands of travel suppliers around the world, I've got an eye for added value. Take a look through my latest selections below. But even if nothing particularly catches your eye - don't worry! Let's chat and I'll take the hassle away from tailoring a perfectly personalised holiday just for you.

Last June, I was lucky enough to travel to Sri Lanka with Emirates and four other Travel Agents. I have so many clients asking about Sri Lanka that I decided it was time I went to see it for myself. I wasn’t disappointed. We flew out business class on the Airbus A380 which was fantastic! I have been in many lounges at London Heathrow and the Emirates lounge is one of the best. They have large area of very comfortable seating with floor to ceiling windows offering great views of the planes taking off and landing. There are a good selection...

I've just come back from the Gold Travel Counsellors Trip to Dubai and what an amazing experience! We stayed in the Westin near The Palm, which has a number of lovely meandering pools, lots of places to sunbathe next to the pool, on the grass or on the beach, and a beautiful warm water swim up bar. The food is absolutely outstanding! They have anything you could possibly want either for breakfast, lunch or dinner; including the traditional breakfast of crunchy, crispy bacon, eggs anyway you like it - beautifully cooked. Any kind of deliciously hot baked bread you can dream of,...
