We flew with Turkish airlines via Istanbul to Kuala Lumpur. On arrival we were met and transferred to the four-star Traders Hotel which is located in downtown Kuala Lumpur. This hotel has a great central location and a fab rooftop pool and bar which serves drinks and plays funky music into the small hours. After a great night’s sleep, we took a half day walking tour around Kuala Lumpur before having lunch at the beautiful Majestic Hotel. If you are looking for luxury and a quiet colonial feel, this is the perfect choice. Our last stop was the Shangri La...

I am lucky enough to have just returned from an educational trip to California and have to say have been totally blown away by this destination. California has something to offer for everyone, from hiking, walking, golf and cycling for the more active to beautiful beaches if you just walk to relax. Plus with an average of 325 days of sunshine per year! We flew direct to Los Angeles with Air New Zealand and arrived to pick up our hire cars for the week. Our first destination was the Loews Hotel in Hollywood Los Angeles which was located in a fantastic...

Taormina in Sicily is nestled high up in the hills and clings dramatically to the rocks overlooking the sparking azure sea. Taormina is a pretty, charming and bustling old town about an hour from Catania Airport but beware if you are travelling there by car it can get very congested, especially in the summer months. There is a cable car that connects Taormina to the lower seaside resorts below and many tourists choose to park here and get up to Taormina this way. The old town itself is very typically Italian with small cobbled streets with lots of cafes, shops and...

I was lucky enough to stay on this fantastic island with my family for 10 days this April. We arrived tired and jetlagged after an overnight flight from the UK and were met by 2 smiling and helpful representatives from Amilla who took us straight off to check in for our 35min transfer by seaplane to Amilla. They checked in our bags and gave us our tickets whilst we sat in their exclusive lounge with a cold towel and refreshments. On arriving at Amilla the service didn’t stop there. We were taken straight to our beautiful rooms by our personal butler...

Just a quick note to say that we are back safe and sound from our US and Canada trip today, and to say a big big thank you. Absolutely everything ran like clockwork, and your meticulous planning was just perfect. I am so impressed. You took all the hard work away and left us with the job of just enjoying ourselves. Here’s to our next trip with you!

This is the first time that we have booked a holiday with toni who was highly recommended to us & it most certainly won't be the last....She has been absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process from start to finish.....from sorting out boarding passes,arranging car seats for our kids to making sure that we had a cot in the room for our one year old son & even taking the time to arrange & pre-book kids club sessions throughout our stay for the children should we wish to utilise the slots....to name just a few of the things that she has done for us.....A very professional, friendly service from Toni & we won't hesitate from recommending her to our family & friends. We look forward to booking our next holiday with Toni who we would like to thank very much so please pass our appreciation onto her. Mr Darren Smith

Toni was great! I have trouble getting away from my desk to make phone calls but it's been so easy to book our holiday with her. She has done everything for us and taken all the worries of my plate. Found us an amazing deal, gave us really good range of suitable options to choose from. I feel confident that Toni will be there if we have any bumps in the road too. I have been able to handle it all via email with Toni or the travel counsellors website. It was all done so quickly once we decided where to go. Amazing customer service and so convenient. We are really looking forward to our holiday! Thank you so much!

It's the first time I used Toni and she understood my requirements and put together an excellent package for my family. I have a very busy work life and trying to sort out holidays is time consuming and stressful but Toni took all the stress and time away. I am very happy person.

Toni provided us with a great service. Her product knowledge was impeccable, her recommendations valued, and her pricing competitive. We will definitely be liaising with Toni again and have already started recommending her to family and friends (she has already booked for a friend living in Singapore)

Toni was recommended to me by a friend of mine and she really took the headache out of finding and booking our family holiday. She spent time understanding our requirements and came up with the perfect solution, taking care of all of our needs from flights, to the perfect villa and our holiday transportation including car hire. I would certainly use Toni again and will be recommending her to friends and family.Thanks Toni for all your help.

Excellent fast and efficient service. Listened to my family requirements and came back with and excellent package at a competitive price.. even calling me back late in the evening to assure me everything was confirmed when flights kept going due to peak season. Email / confirmation info all highly efficient also. Can not recommend enough.
From the pristine white-sand beaches of Thailand’s idyllic islands to the sprawling wide-open roads of the USA; the historic and breathtakingly beautiful architecture of India to the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Maldives – there’s a world of wonder out there and it’s just waiting to be explored.
