MALDIVES, SRI LANKA & SEYCHELLES from proposal to honeymoon
"When I wanted to propose to the love of my life I knew that I had to find something really special to mark the occasion, I searched for weeks and tried to find a luxury location with the accommodation that was right for us. I looked everywhere I could but kept going round in circles and wasn't sure about connecting flights, itineraries or any of the details that were needed to make the trip go smoothly and with that touch of extra class, I was looking for. This is where Steve came in! After a friendly chat and explaining what I was after Steve went to work and in no time at all had the most amazing, bespoke, luxury holiday on an island in the Maldives organised for me. Even down to the smallest detail of which room we wanted and how I was going to propose, liaising with the staff on the island Steve completely reassured me that everything was taken care of. From the moment we left the airport in the U.K. we had absolutely nothing to worry about! We had the most incredible time - the flights, the transfers, the accommodation and the entire holiday was absolutely faultless from start to finish. We had a personalised greeting from Steve in our room and felt confident that at any point should we have any concerns we could reach Travel Counsellors if we needed to... but we never needed to. Two years later when we were due to be married we found ourselves in a similar situation about the honeymoon and without hesitation spoke to Steve. Again Steve pulled together a bespoke trip for us. We wanted to experience adventure but also relax and so we had the most incredible 3-week package put together for us. Ten days touring across Sri Lanka seeing the amazing people, culture and scenery, going on safaris to see wild leopards and elephants and then flying to a private island in the Seychelles to our honeymoon suite with a private beach to relax with fine dining and luxury in style! Just as before... perfect from start to finish! We had 7 fights and stayed in 9 hotels in total and every single step of the way went as smoothly as possible, even as far as room upgrades and congratulatory surprises everywhere we went! On both holidays neither my wife or I could possibly imagine anything that could have improved our experience, this is all down to Steve. His incredible attention to detail, thorough knowledge of the destinations and friendly professionalism. During the planning of both trips Steve would communicate regularly with me in every detail and when everything was booked he made the journey to us in person to hand us all our documents in a special leather wallet and go through everything and answer all our questions so we knew exactly what to expect and where to be at all times. If you want the perfect holiday and someone to ensure all the details are taken care of with the peace of mind that you are completely covered against any problems then speak to Steve at Travel Counsellors, first class service and a first class guy :) Marcus Dorrington, Ware, Hertfordshire.
