Hi Paul,

I have recently returned from a cruise on the Veendam, and wanted to thank you for arranging it all for me.  I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the holiday.
I wanted to tell you how impressed I was with the hotel Atlis Belem in Lisbon.  Very modern, lovely rooms, excellent breakfast, and a terrific location.  Highly recommend. We actually ate out at local restaurants, but what we had we thoroughly enjoyed. Great place to stay before a cruise.
I would also like to mention the great service we received from Holiday Taxis, comfortable car and a very attentive driver.
In all a most enjoyable and problem free holiday.
Regards Janet

“I was recently invited to visit the Luxury properties of the Elounda Group in Elounda, Crete.The three beach front properties are very different catering for both families and couples along with a Relais & Chateaux section.The gentle bays with clear blue waters offer great safe bathing along with good opportunities for snorkeling and other water sports. There are 7 restaurants to choose from offering wonderful seafood and fine dining.The complex has accommodation to suit everyone some with private pools which are excellent for families and couple alike.The complex is just 5 mins from the village of Elounda, 8 mins from Plakia and 16 mins from Aghios Nickoloas where you can wander around the local streets which have wonderful seafront restaurants – all still at very good prices and of course with wonderful sea views.. (Average starter 4/5 euro and main course 10/ 15 euro) From here you can also pay a visit to the island of Splinilonga which was a former leper colony, however today a popular tourist attraction.
Crete has so much to offer! Give me a call if you fancy a visit and I’ll find the holiday to suit you and your wallet.01937 845678

“I have just returned from the most amazing trip the wonderful Sultanate Of Oman, flying direct to Muscat with Oman Air – A great service in both Economy and Business class.
Rated as the 4th safest country in the world and you soon get the feeling that this is totally true.

The country has so much to offer, with the variation of beaches, mountains, deserts, forts, Wadis, & Souk’s …
So many things to offer for a totally unique holiday.

I visited the Muscat area seeing various hotels and places of local interest then into the mountains for breath-taking views

In the cool mountains the villages haven’t changed in decades.
I saw beautiful beaches where I witnessed Green Turtles actually laying their eggs – the most amazing experience at the Ras Al Jinz …
The Turtle reserve is such a worthy cause and protects these wonderful mammals for their continued future.

The Anantara at Jabal AL Akhdar Hotel in the mountains has mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing the ferrata’s. So many activities to engage in.

So if Oman is of any interest to you please give me a call on 01937 845678 or email me for prices for your perfect holiday.”

“Hi Paul. I was going to drop you a few lines as a matter of courtesy.The trip was a complete success.The hotel was everything we could have hoped for and having walked the beach and seen the ones further along ours was the quietest and much more suited to our needs.
One thing I would mention was when we met the Red Sea Holidays Rep, he was very impressed with your booklet containing e ticket etc. He was drooling over the way it was all set up. I knew no better, but you must be getting that right!.
So, thank you for all your help and advice. Mandy is already talking about the next one!”

“I have just return from a trip to see the stunning island of Sicily.
The island offers such a variety of possibilities to suit all needs. The stunning city of Palermo has a vibrant Opera scene to match Verona but at a faction of the cost!
There are wonderful historic sites with colosseums & Amphitheatres dating from Greek & Roman times.
Beautiful bustling towns like Cefalu, Castellammare del Golf, Trapani and Taormina, with its stunning views over Mountt Etna. It has great shopping and busy restaurants.
You could do a fly drive, a weekend break or just beach
holiday with history – Sicily has it all.
Please give me a call if you fancy a trip to this jewel in the Med”

“Seattle is well known for The Space Needle, The Boeing Factory, Amazon & Starbucks, but it is so much more than that!.
As well as the cruise port, Seattle is the gateway to some of the most amazing countryside – Mount Olympic National Park & Mount Rainier National park being perfect examples.
These areas offer opportunities to see whales, bears and beautiful mountain scenery in abundance and if you are a fan of the films ‘Twilight’ then you can relive the episodes here.
The lively area of Capitol Hill has an array of lively bars and restaurants or choose the more cosmopolitan area at the waterfront.Either way, there’s plenty of choice.
Seattle is a great city break but also a springboard to the wonderful wineries, hiking and so many outdoor activities.
Give me a call if this is one of the areas you wish to visit.”

Paul has just been to Peru –
I have just had the most wonderful experience of visiting Peru on the trip of a lifetime!
There is so much to see, from the ancient Inca civilisations of Maccha Picchu to the vast plains on route to Lake Titicaca and
the stunning Andes mountain range. The Lake Titicaca area measures over 1250 km in length and is absolutely beautiful. Here you’ll find the floating tribes still living on reed beds made into platforms.
During my trip I visited Lima, Sacred Valley, Puno, Cusco, Agua Calientes, Maccha Picchu and Lake Titicaca, all of which has given me a great knowledge of the area.
Lima has baroque styled coastal suburbs such as Barranca & Miraflores with its plazas and vibrant restaurants. This contrasts with the stunning scenery of the Sacred Valley which is the start of the Inca trail and then there was the breath taking rail journey on the Titicaca train across the Peruvian highlands. All in all, it was a very special week. We packed so much into our time (which I would not recommend) and this gave me a fantastic insight into the wonders of Peru! It is an amazing country with so much to offer – adventure, culinary delights, stunning scenery and history.
If Peru is on your Bucket List, then give me a call and I will plan your dream holiday!

“Hi Paul

My apologies for the late feedback from our family adventure holiday last July in Costa Rica. Would you believe I have only just managed to start sorting through our photos which reminded me that we hadn’t let you know how great the holiday was and how brilliantly organised it was. Every event and transfer was perfectly punctual. Plenty of activities to keep everyone happy, excellent hotels and time to chill and explore. And teeming with wildlife everywhere. It was a great holiday, so a big thank you.

Best wishes


“I recently visited India for the 4th time but his time to four places that I’ve never been to on previous trips and this has given me a whole new dimension for travel to India.
I started off in Mumbai (Bombay of Old) which is a wonderful city. ‘The Gateway to India’ based on a sea peninsula, it gives the city a totally different feel to any other Indian city I have visited. It has history, vibrant shopping areas, long sea front walks & great restaurants…… I could go on.
Famed for the Slums where Slum Dog Millionaire was filmed, it is amazing to see how people are working together in such conditions. Everywhere I looked, I saw smiling faces and it’s amazing to think that these slums generate over 650 billion pounds of revenue a year!
After Mumbai we traveled to the Majestic Desert area of Rajasthan, flying into Udaipur & then a road transfer to Jawai Leopard camp in Jawai. This area is literally miles from anywhere with stunning scenery. We saw rural India and local villages with the added bonus of seeing the elusive leopard on our game drives as well as stunning bird life.
The camp itself is pure luxury owned by the Sujan hotel group offers firstst class accommodation and food.
From here we drove to Jaisalmer in Northern Rajasthan to a camp called The Serai Luxury camp. Another first class property owned by Sujan Hotels, the camp is set in the desert so the theme is very much based on relaxation. The old town of Jaisalmer is only 20 minutes away and is famous for palaces and its Halevi’s. It’s a very intriguing, small yet wonderful city.
After the stay here we went back to Jodhpur – the Blue City. There is a very fascinating reason why it is painted blue….. but you’ll have to ask me for the answer!
Mehrangarh Fort, Jaswant Thada and the Old bazaar are all a ‘must see’.
I was very fortunate to be there for the Turban Festival and loved spending the day in my turban! (fortunately, I didn’t have to tie it myself).
We finished the trip in Delhi but this time I saw a totally different side to the city. We explored by foot and local train. The new subway is amazing.
It was a brilliant way to finish a fantastic visit to such an amazing, vibrant, colourful & exciting country.
I’d be delighted to put together a trip to India for you, whether it be luxury or just comfortable – please give me a call and I’ll make your dreams come true!
“Being able to fly direct from Manchester to Abu Dhabi is a great plus and being the smaller of the major UAE States,it was such a fantastic surprise.
I had visited Abu Dhabi 25 years ago and it feels as though it has hardly changed apart from a few Skyscrapers.
It genuinely feels like you are in the Middle East and not Tinsel town with lots of traditional dress still being worn by both male & females. It isn’t as commercialised as Dubai.
It has wonderful beaches, great water sports and so many quality hotels at very reasonable prices.The stunning Abu Dhabi Mosque is well worth a visit. The amazing Ferrari World has fantastic rides & of course great cars. It is such a good day out.There is also a great water park – Water world and the Viceroy hotel with the Grand Prix circuit which is a must for a day of fun. If this isn’t enough, you can always go kayaking through the mangroves, take a desert Safari, play golf or visit the many parks followed by plenty of shopping in the extensive malls.
All in all Abu Dhabi is a wonderful holiday destination on its own or as a stopover on route to other destinations.
I loved it and will definitely return for a holiday next year! “
