Island Paradise

25 October 2021

There can't be many places as perfect as Mauritius. An island in the Indian Ocean where the scenery and beaches are sublime. We stayed at a fabulous all inclusive resort on the south east coast. With five restaurants to choose from, unlimited cocktails, every type of water-sport imaginable, fabulous local entertainment, a wild beach and lagoon and a beautiful outdoor spa — we really didn't need to leave the resort. We couldn't fly all the way to Mauritius and not see Mauritius so we hired a car for two days. Driving is on the left and the roads are well signposted and in good condition. We explored the island and visited the giant turtles and crocodiles. We saw waterfalls, mountains and sugar plantations, villages and Hindu temples. We lunched in the buzzing capital Port Louis and took a tour of the famous post office where the first British colonial postage stamps were issued in 1847. Back then the postman used a bicycle. With our sightseeing completed we returned to our resort content to spend the remainder of our holiday chilled out on a sun-lounger, sipping cocktails. We loved Mauritius and highly recommend it for honeymooners and families

Stacey was organised, efficient and very helpful when booking our trip. She was always quick to respond to queries whatever time of the day. During our trip she kept us fully updated and in very difficult circumstances eased our return home, even providing a large amount of foodstuffs which were scarce by the time we got back. Would recommend without hesitation and will unquestionably use her services again. Thank you Stacey!

Stacey did a terrific job planning and booking our South America trip to Rio de Janiero for the Carnival and the Galapagos Islands. I gave her an outline of where we wanted to go and she planned everything perfectly. It all worked like clockwork - flights, hotels, airport transfers, guided tours and tickets for events. Stacey was there to support us during our trip when we had questions and really made this a trip of a lifetime. I would definitely recommend her to other travellers.

We have used Stacey's services on numerous occasions now and have never been disappointed. We often go to her with a rough idea of the type of holiday we want, and its location, and Stacey always comes back to us with numerous holiday suggestions which we have a pleasant time perusing. Once a holiday decision is made, Stacey manages the bookings and administration competently and swiftly and is readily available to answer any query. Once on holiday, Stacey guides and prompts via the very good TC App 'myTC' . On returning home recently, tired from a long haul flight, we were delighted with Stacey's welcome pack of food essentials, allowing us to ease back into everyday life without the need to hit the shops too soon. I would thoroughly recommend Stacey to anyone wishing to book a holiday, be it the holiday of a lifetime, or a short getaway. We will definitely use Stacey's services again.

Stacey planned our dream honeymoon. She provided us with really great recommendations, and understood exactly what we wanted from our trip. The whole honeymoon from start to finish was so well organised and seamless. It was a really special trip and we couldn’t have done it without her help. Every detail was thoroughly thought out which meant we could just relax and enjoy our holiday.

We were planning a family holiday in September when we were recommended Stacey at TC. When I spoke to her on the phone, she was really very friendly. She asked us what sort of things we like to do as a family and as my children are all young adults, she found us the perfect holiday resort in Marrakech. Everything was organised by Stacey, we didn’t have to worry about anything from airport transfers to our choice of rooms, dietary requirements at the hotel to excursions and the resort had so much for us to do. We all had a great time. It was exactly how we like to holiday! I love the travel wallet she had prepared for us with everything printed our boarding passes, itinerary, hotel booking info, ATOL cert - everything was in place! She even gave me some tourist books and recommended a driver for excursions. It was such a wonderful one to one service with Stacey. I will definitely book again and recommend family and friends. Very hassle things free and found us the best deal! It saved us a lot of time. She is definitely an expert and knows her stuff! Thank you for the warm service, Stacey x

Stacey did a terrific job of planning and booking a wonderful trip to Japan for me and my family this summer. Everything she did, from the advance planning and advice to the trip itself and the welcome pack when we arrived home, was carried out efficiently, professionally and quickly. Nothing was too much trouble and the trip itself was amazing - every aspect worked like clockwork - I wouldn’t have changed any of it. I would thoroughly recommend Stacey for your dream holiday and look forward to using her again.
