Regular Client

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and Mike for all of your help planning our perfect honeymoon!! The Airport lounge was such a great way to start the honeymoon. Dan has decided that’s how we are now going to start every holiday from now on. Thanks to Mike for checking every possible date again, he was so patient with me. Its was amazing to fly the day after the wedding as we were on such a high.

South Africa was unreal….and they upgraded us to the best room in the hotel. Stunning. We saw so many animals including a few rare sights such as 4 males lions walking next to our truck.

 

Jenni Hill

Honeymoon

We’ve had a lovely time. The villa was ideal for us a couple.

I’m glad you’ve said you can do travel worldwide because that was a question I was going to ask you. As much as we love Lanzarote we feel like a change.

Thanks again julie to both you and Mike I feel like I now you know and trust you to get Graham and myself the best holiday.

Mike Cliffe-Jones

Director

I love travelling, especially when I get do so with a touch of luxury. For me travel is about buying “moments’ rather than “Things.” I’m an Ironman triathlete, scuba diver and I love techy stuff and cars. Sadly for my waistline, I love cooking and enjoying great food! My favourite places so far are Cape Town and Las Vegas, but I plan to explore the far east much more.

Julie Cliffe-Jones

Director

I’m in my forties, the kids have grown up and it’s time to have some fun with my hubby interspersing work with travel. I love discovering new places, I like to stay in luxury hotels, understand the local culture, experience the gastronomy and take photographs as I travel. I’m also a triathlete and Ironman, so when I do have some spare time I’ll probably be swimming, cycling or running.

Bar Central La Boqueria

La Boqueria Food Market

The Mercat de la Boqueria, also known as the Mercat de Sant Josep is a magnet for tourists. This superb food market is situated between La Rambla and the plaza of Sant Josep, it’s a busy, bustling and vibrant place. We tried twice during the afternoon and again in the evening to find vacant stools at one of the tapas bars in La Boqueria, without success. So that mission remains top of our list for our next visit to Barcelona.…

Turó de la Rovira Wedding Shoot

Best view of Barcelona – Turó de la Rovira

For the best panoramic view over Barcelona head for the Turó de la Rovira, a viewpoint enjoyed by locals at the weekend, but not on the tourist map. This location is approximately 15 minutes by taxi from the centre of Barcelona, we had a hire car so it was relatively easy to access, although there is limited free parking, we were fortunate to take the last space on arrival. You can also catch these buses, 24, 92, 119 & V17.…

Barcelo Raval 360 Roof Bar Terrace

Barcelo Raval

We wanted a hotel with a wow factor for our Friday night with the family in Barcelona, we found it at the Barceló Raval. Having arrived early in the city, we parked our car at the underground parking next door to the hotel and went out to explore and get some lunch. It was slightly disappointing when we arrived in reception after the standard check in time of 14:00 to find that our rooms weren’t ready. We were surprised also…

Reykjavik Northern Lights

Snow, Santa & Northern Lights

Looking back our most memorable holidays to date have been those that involved snow, there’s something pure and magical about spending time in these winter destinations. We’ve been snowboarding as a family in Courchevel, which was our first time on the piste and our children say it’s probably their best holiday. When they were little we did the Santa Experience and spent a few days in Rovaniemi where the days were full of snow fun adventures including husky dog sledging,…

Travelling to Europe? Don’t leave home without your EHIC

We prompt all of our clients travelling to Europe to take their European Health Insurance Cards with them, as you don’t know when you might need it for emergency treatment. The EHIC isn’t to be used instead of travel insurance, but in conjunction with it. It’s not enough just to have travel insurance as many of the policies rely on you having a valid EHIC if you read the small print in the T&C’s. If you need emergency health treatment…
