Rebecca at Travel Counsellors is our number 1 choice when it comes to vacations, especially bespoke itineraries. I don’t think anyone could of made our 7 days, 7 flights trip to China work let alone be enjoyable, but Rebecca worked her magic and perfected it. Thanks to Rebecca we are getting to explore the world in a way we never thought possible. Thank you so much.

We toured California this Summer for 3 weeks. I originally set out to plan, and book it myself, but soon realised that this was not straightforward! I asked Rebecca to come up with a route with booked hotels for us. Within a couple of days she came back with several options based on the information we gave her. We stayed in 8 hotels over 3 weeks, starting in Las Vegas, then Death Valley, Lake Tahoe (instead of Yosemite), San Francisco, Napa Valley, Monterey Bay, Santa Monica, and finally San Diego. Within a day of arriving in Las Vegas, Rebecca contacted us with the news that Yosemite was closed due to Forest fires, and that we wouldn't be able to stay there. She gave us a couple of options, including Lake Tahoe, which we chose. The whole process was stress free, and really showed the benefit of Rebecca's excellent skill and experience in the Travel industry. This was a truly memorable holiday, made all the better by Rebeccas excellent choice of Hotels, and suggestions where to visit.

We both spent a long time thinking about what we wanted our honeymoon to be like and decided it needed to be the right balance of adventure, relaxation and a big thing was to see elephants in the wild. We met our local Travel Counsellor Rebecca at a local wedding show and she came to our house and she made some great suggestions. We worked together to put an itinerary for Sri Lanka & The Maldives. With Rebecca's extensive 1st hand knowledge and experience she recommended excursions and areas we never thought of and combined a great mix of nature, culture and famous sights of Sri Lanka. We had a fabulous honeymoon thanks to Rebecca and i am sure we will use her again for our next adventure.

Rebecca was fantastic! I felt that she listened to my every requirement and even my idealistic ideas for my dream honeymoon! Rebecca was very prompt with my requests and to my amazement was working out of hours for me into the early hours of the mornings as I emailed her more ideas. Thank you so much for all of your help Rebecca, I cant wait to book again with you.

Recently returned from a fantastic 16 day holiday in San Francisco and St Lucia expertly packaged together for us by Becky. We cannot thank her enough for the time and patience she allowed us, numerous emails, telephone conversations and a face to face meeting all to ensure we had the right holiday for our tastes/needs. Whilst away I was ill Becky was on hand and managed to re schedule a trip for us which we had paid in advance for. We would not hesitate to recommend Becky for any trip long or short, unless you love hours and hours of google and trip advisor you would be mad not to give her a ring! Thanks again Vicky & Stew

Rebecca booked me a family holiday to Disney World. She was brilliant, very responsive and answered all my questions when they arose. When she bought my holiday tickets over, there were small personalised gifts for my daughters which they loved. It's those little touches that you don't get with large companies that Rebecca provides. I will definitely be using Rebecca for future bookings!

Rebecca took my brief and delivered 3 excellent options, not only hitting the brief completely, but supplying me with 3 great choices, which were presented clearly and in full detail. Not only that, but her attention to my request, and her offer of advice was second to none, and her service exceptional. I will use Rebecca whenever I can, and will recommend her to my friends, family and colleagues.

Rebecca helped find us a honeymoon that was exactly what we wanted. When we first started looking we had a few places in mind. Throughout the booking we changed our minds, dates etc but it never bothered Rebecca she just found us new quotes and was so helpful from start to finish

Having a travel consultant is the way to go to book a multi destination trip and Rebecca is simply fab. She totally ‘got’ the sort of trip we wanted (west coast USA) and has great suggestions and ideas for everything. We made a few changes along the way with the itinerary and Rebecca was so accommodating and made it all come together. Can’t wait for our trip next summer!

If you are looking for a holiday , but unsure where to look first , may I suggest you contact Rebecca. We went to her for advice and info on summer hols and have just returned from the most idyllic 2 weeks in St Lucia. She listened to what we were looking for and from her research suggested several suitable locations. Rebecca managed our whole holiday , even booking us on our outbound flights when she gave us the excellent news of our upgraded flights . I will definitely be using her services again next year!

Planning your honeymoon? I am an expert in this area and creating inspirational itineraries to leave you with memories forever! Weddings can be challenging to plan. From picking the perfect venue, more importantly the perfect dress! to what to say in the speeches and the some say the hardest part, the seating plan. Traditionally, the happy couple would ask their families and friends to buy them items for their new home, however in modern times, most couples already have plenty of pots, pans, towels, a toaster and maybe even a spiralizer! Instead, why not let your wedding guests contribute towards an...

There’s plenty to savour in Barbados: dreamy beaches, swaying palms, idyllic hotels, beautiful blue seas. There’s also the food. Barbados styles itself as the culinary capital of the Caribbean, with an unparalleled choice of places to eat: fine dining restaurants, beachside cafes, local rum shops. And, whether your food is framed by soft candlelight and pristine, starched white tablecloths, or engaging Bajan banter and domino tables, you’ll be delighted by what you eat, especially as 2018 has been designated Barbados’ year of culinary experiences. If you’ve not visited Barbados yet, here’s five good reasons why you should visit now…. Famed for its...

I love Dubai and there is so much more to it than glitzy hotels! Having been twice now, I certainly will be going again as I have only just scratched the surface with what you can do there! On both occasions I have stayed at the same hotel. I have simply fallen in love with it and despite both my trips being five years apart, it didn't disappoint me on my recent trip in September this year! The Jumeirah Zabeel Saray is located on the Palm, a 40-minute journey from the airport. From the moment you arrive you are blown away...

For some reason I had never been drawn to Cyprus, but this year I took a trip for a week with my husband and we loved it! We stayed near to Paphos at the Athena Beach adults only hotel. They have a sister property next door for families. Located directly on the sea front, the location was perfect. Along the front of the hotel you could take the coastal path into Paphos harbour where there is an abundance of restaurants and bars to enjoy. As we had already enjoyed what I call a fly and flop holiday in Dominican Republic in...

Whether you’re going with a partner, friends, children or grandparents you’ll find something for everyone in the Cape, and if you’re a wine aficionado you will never want to leave! When visiting Cape Town city, it’s advisable to stay near the V&A Waterfront to be in the most central location for a lot of the sights and the Waterfront itself.

We were going to get use of our express passes - and go on all the fun rides in Universal we so far hadn't tried. I was with the brave gang of 5 who went off to do the exhilarating rides. We decided that we wanted to do all the big rides and max out our passes, the Hollywood Ride (that's the big one), the Hulk (again not for the faint hearted), Jurassic Park, Despicable Me, and Kong. You get the picture. They are all great rides and took me back to being a big kid again, who doesn't have...

Many couples like the appeal of leaving all the fuss of a big UK wedding behind and heading off to marry somewhere small and intimate on their own or with just a small group of close friends and family. One of the attractions of getting married abroad is that it doesn't need to cost what a more traditional wedding in the UK might cost. And you won't need to blow your budget if you choose to marry abroad. I have a selection of hotels that offer free wedding packages and they are perfect if you have a simple ceremony in...

What is a renewal of vows? A wedding vow renewal ceremony is where a married couple renew or reaffirm their wedding vows. The ceremonies have been popular in Italy for decades, and have existed in United States since the 1950s, but only became popular there after the 1970s. Most take place in churches and are seen as a way for a married couple to renew their commitment to each other and demonstrate that the vows they took are still considered sacred. To some couples the ceremony offers the chance to celebrate the wedding they never had. Renewal ceremonies often take on...
