An excellent service. Perfectly organised our Bali Multi-Centre holiday, from bare ideas to an excellent final package. We were able to discuss our itinerary through with Neil who worked hard to find us what we required and he achieved it brilliantly. He worked on our behalf to get the room upgrades we wanted and secured a late checkout on day of departure. Very important for me was extra leg room due to the lengthy flights and Neil must be commended for getting that sorted. We would never have got a package like this sorted on our own. An excellent, professional service and always a friendly voice to discuss our trip. Definitely a 100% performance. A credit to your company.

From the flight down to Southampton, the overnight stay in the Grand Harbour Hotel, and boarding the Azura, it all went like clockwork! There was plenty to do, with excellent entertainment. The food, we were spoilt for choice, and presented well. Sheila had a wonderful birthday, the waiters sang Happy Birthday to her which made it special. Many thanks Neil, for organising a wonderful cruise holiday to the Med and will be asking you to organising our next holiday. We have already passed your name and contact details to friends.

We booked a trip of a life time with Neil - Singapore, Sydney, Ayres Rock, Melbourne and Kuala Lumpur, it was fantastic. Flights, transfers and hotels were spot on, and Neil came up with some great ideas for some additional day trips which we would never have found out about - we can’t wait to book the next one with him. The care and attention to detail was unbelievable and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone planning a holiday

We had a great time so thank you very much for organising it for us! Safari was excellent. We got to see 4 out of the Big 5 and thoroughly enjoyed the national parks. We found the tour operators very knowledgeable, efficient and friendly and it all seemed to go to plan. Mombasa was definitely an eye opener, but a very interesting experience. All accommodations were really good, but we were so happy we were able to stay at the final lodge (Saltlick Lodge in Taita Hills) as it really was the highlight of the trip and words just can't describe! If we were to do a safari again knowing what we now know, we would spend 2 days at the lodges instead of one, simply due to the early mornings every day followed by the very long daily drives to travel to the next park. The hotel in Zanzibar was just brilliant and we couldn't have asked for a nicer resort. It was most relaxing and picturesque and we didn't do an awful lot other than relax!

We are now back home and would like to pass on our sincere thanks for all your efforts in making our trip to New Zealand a wonderful experience. Every detail was exact, from the original home pick up, right through to the home drop off. The flight detail was ideal, the selection of the car hire vehicle suited us perfectly, the hotel choice and room upgrades were great - at Wellington, Lake Taupo and Auckland. Emirates - exceptional service including the chauffeur service. Air New Zealand excellent throughout Dubai. The One and Only Royal Mirage fantastic. Even though we only stayed 2 nights the staff made us a ‘bon voyage’ special treat and made a real fuss of us. ‘At Home Apartment’ in Wellington was very well presented, in a good location a short walk into the city. ‘Ta Papa Tongarewa’ proved both memorable and moving especially the presentation of the ‘Gallipoli episode’ - highly recommend. Lots to do and see in Wellington. On to Lake Taupo, a very nice scenic route through the mountains we took our time and arrived after a 4 hr very enjoyable drive. The Hilton Hotel was excellent and the choice of the Junior Suite was a good one, very spacious, with private balcony, their restaurant was first class. We visited Napier from here, a great day out, especially having found their Hawks Bay wine. On to Auckland to the very nice Crowne Plaza Hotel, again a great choice of “club room”, with the additional privilege of their very good club room facilities. Home via the long haul, then a very timely connection from Dubai to Manchester all as planned. Haven’t mentioned the games, what a fantastic tour - without the lure of the rugby we would never have visited New Zealand. So, from what was initially only a rather vague enquiry - you have managed to provide us with a life time memory, our sincere thanks!

Joel and I are now back from holiday in Jamaica and we had a ball. We'd like to thank you for organising it all for us and making sure it all went smoothly! My family and I (8 people) are looking to go to America about this time next year, so I will be in touch soon, if that's okay? Thanks again!

An excellent person to arrange a holiday. My wife and I booked a 5* holiday to Greece. Booking process was very easy. Neil kept in constant touch prior, during and after our holiday to ensure everything was ok. Very professional, very friendly. Highly recommended.

My wife, Lorraine and I decided we would like to visit the 'Sunshine State' California. We knew where we wanted to go, but felt it would be difficult to ensure bookings and arrangements would work out. We then contacted Neil and it was absolutely the right choice. Our plans were to fly to San Francisco, hire a car, then drive to Los Angeles, staying in Monterey, Santa Barbara and San Diego on the way, then fly back from 'the City of Angels. Neil did a brilliant job, we discussed the plan and over following three weeks, with a lot of phone calls, we planned the perfect holiday. We stayed in San Francisco for three nights, picked up the hire car, a Ford Mustang convertible, of course, what else! Drove to Monterey, stayed two nights, then on to Santa Barbara for two nights via the 'Pacific Highway, Pebble beach and Hearst Castle. From there to San Diego for three nights, a must see city. Finally drove to Los Angeles for four nights. All the flights, hotel, car hire and transfer bookings were spot on with no problems whatsoever. A huge thank you to Neil for arranging an awesome trip. He kept in contact before, during and after the holiday to ensure everything went going to plan. Here's to the next holiday with Neil and Travel Counsellors.
