Jackie & Hollie went to Amsterdam last week for the day. It was a very quick and easy flight from Leeds Bradford and then an equally easy & quick train journey to Amsterdam Central Station. Literally a 10 min walk takes you to the River Ship berths so a river cruise that starts or ends in Amsterdam is so convenient and such a relaxed way to start your holiday. You can be on board with a drink in hand before 11am ! They went to take a look…

“It’s been years since I went to Greece so I was REALLY looking forward to going back this summer and I wasn’t disappointed. I went back to Kefalonia where I visited over 20 years ago when my children were very small. I was curious to see how much it had changed and I was pleased when I saw that it really hadn’t very much. Argostoli the capital was far busier and has spread out considerably but the other resorts weren’t too different. We stayed in Lassi all those…

Silversea – Silver Shadow “I was lucky enough to be invited to on a 3-night short cruise with Silversea Cruises. The beautiful Silver Shadow is a Millennium Class ship from Silversea and is larger than some of their other ships but even so, still only has 388 guests. With over 300 crew on board, you are totally cared for in every way! I stayed in a Veranda Suite which is 32 square metres in size and is a really lovely suite. You have a dressing room, a veranda,…

“I’ve just been away to Estapona in southern Spain for a few days and was very pleasantly surprised! I had been at a conference in Cadiz and decided to stay on for a bit of a holiday. My flight was from Malaga and I’ve stayed there before (a fabulous city break destination) and I’ve also stayed in and around Torremolinos/Benalmadena areas so thought I would venture further south and try Estapona. It is a longer transfer time which may put people off (a little over an hour by…

Jackie spent last weekend in Krakow – Poland. It was a very reasonable package deal flying from LeedsBradford on Friday morning, returning on Monday afternoon. She booked private transfers which worked perfectly. Someone was waiting with her name on a card as they exited arrivals and immediately took them off to a very comfortable car for the half hour journey. The 3.5* hotel was situated just off the main square so was in a perfect location. Krakow is just how you imagine with old buildings full of character…

“Last month I went on a holiday that I’ve wanted to do for years and it didn’t disappoint. I’ve always wanted to do the coastal drive in California that we’ve all seen on countless TV programmes & films. Our trip started at Manchester where we boarded the very convenient Thomas Cook direct flight to San Francisco. We booked their Premium Service which was very good value for money. It’s a separate check in with Fast Passes, extra luggage allowance, a separate cabin on board with premium meals &…

Jackie has just returned from a gloriously sunny week on the south coast. She stayed in a beautiful lodge with private Hot tub which was on farm on the Somerset/Dorset border. It was in the ‘Autograph’ range of lodges with Hoseasons Holidays who do many different types of accommodation all over the UK. Whether it’s your main holiday or an additional week to keep the kids happy in school holidays – come & see us and we’ll find something to suit.

Jackie recently went to Miami to attend the Advantage Travel conference which was a great success and very inspiring. She thoroughly enjoyed it and said the speakers were fabulous and business sessions very useful. It’s a great opportunity to meet people within the industry, learn from one another and meet some fabulous contacts. It was a very long way to go just for a conference which is why she decided to stay on for a week and enjoy a little holiday! “Firstly, the flight was such good value…

Jackie has just returned from a short break to Venice. Flying from Liverpool with Easyjet they got a real bargain! The flight times were perfect for a short break and they enjoyed nearly 4 full days. The weather was perfect with sunshine & blue skies although it was very cold but this didn’t stop them making the most of the days. Marco Polo airport is very close to Venice and you have a choice of ways to get to your hotel. Firstly, there is a bus which takes…

Jackie & Helen were extremely lucky to be invited on an agents trip with Hebridean Island Cruises. This was their experience – “As soon as the invite came in, we knew what a privilege this would be and were very excited. This product is known to be very special and it did not disappoint! For anyone not wanting to fly or nervous about travelling alone, it could not be better. You simply get a train (direct York to Glasgow in our case) where you are met and taken…
