My name is Valerio and welcome to my personal home page.
Travelling, most of us will agree, is one of the most exciting experiences in life and the good thing is that you can do it over and over again and with the world being so big, you really are spoilt for choice! But booking a holiday can be a daunting task, with so many destinations and products to choose from, you will be better off with a personal Travel Counsellor to guide you through and here I can be of help.
I have been working in the travel industry for almost 15 years and I enjoy very much organising holidays. No trip is too small or big for me; I genuinely get a buzz when I am looking into a holiday or a business trip for my clients. In a way, I do feel I am travelling with them or that I am planning my own holiday!
As a personal Travel Counsellor I will be dealing with your booking from the beginning to the end, listening to your requests and ideas and making sure you are getting the right product at a competitive price. I am available during and outside normal office working hours because at Travel Counsellors we believe the customer should be able to get in touch with us at any time.
Another important aspect when booking a holiday is financial protection from supplier failure and at Travel Counsellors we have a unique Financial Trust, the best one in the industry.
If you are looking for a travel experience, and a service that you will return to time and time again, feel free to contact me. I will be delighted to hear from you.
"I am writing to thank you for taking the stress out of planning a family trip to Jersey this coming June. Within a few hours of me asking you to quote for our trip, you had come up with three different hotel options, two flight options and car rental for our preferred dates of travel. When I spoke to you the following day, you quickly checked availability of our chosen hotel and flights, then booked and confirmed our trip around 10 minutes later. The next day you also took the trouble to ring our hotel and help secure an upgrade to a more luxurious room. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to my business and personal contacts for their future travel needs. THANK YOU"

The Air Canada flight left Heathrow at 15:00 and we landed in Toronto at 18:00. The flight was faultless, cabin crew polite and the Economy seat comfortable. Food was good too. There was a choice of salmon or pasta. I picked the pasta dish and wasn’t disappointed. Only criticism was the choice of audio and film on board, which was quite limited. On the other end, it was maybe better that way, so I didn’t have to spend too much time to ponder what to watch! Transfer from the airport to the city is generally quick (30 minutes) but there was...

I had great expectations about this resort based on the website and reviews and I was not disappointed, but actually blown away! The Pelican Hill is situated in Newport Beach, two minutes’ drive from the beach and 40 minutes’ drive away from Los Angeles. From there you can reach many destinations in Southern California and many guests do one-way trips as far as San Diego. I stayed in a three-bedroom villa fitted with a kitchen that I wish I had in my flat! It was spacious and well equipped. The kitchen was open-plan with the living room, something I like in...

I have not stayed at this hotel but I was shown around and I had a meal there. From the outside I must say this hotel didn’t look that great and the entrance was rather too dark. I changed my mind though once I had a view of the very inviting swimming pool and bar area glittering in the evening. The hotel had a lot of charm. The rooms had been recently re-decorated and smelled of new and had a touch of light green and blue that gave them a modern and casual feeling. The rooms were not, in my opinion, as...

Although I have not stayed at this hotel, I was shown around while in Los Angeles. The Montage is a luxury hotel located near Rodeo Drive, therefore in the heart of the city. It definitely has a European flavour and when I was there I did actually forget I was in LA! I could have been in Rome or Paris. I had this impression straight away because of the hotel structure, with a portico and a well-kept garden with a fountain in the middle of it. On the inside, the atmosphere stays European and Classical and the hotel also has great views...
