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


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


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


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.

Charlie Joyce

Travel Agent

After growing up with a real passion for food I trained as a Chef and whilst I have now joined the family travel business, I still love cooking for my family and friends.  I enjoy travelling and experiencing different cultures and cuisines which fits perfectly with another hobby of mine of taking great photographs.  I have been DJ’ing for many years and I still enjoy mixing electronic dance music.  I have been visiting the Canary Islands for almost 10 years and I plan to move to one of the islands with my Wife and Daughter. 

Natalie Joyce

Travel Agent

After years in HR Management I have joined the family travel business. As a travel fan and parent of a 12 year old Daughter I like to switch our holidays up between sight seeing City breaks and chilled out holidays in the sun. I consider myself to be a real foodie, we are always experimenting in the kitchen at home and we eat out as often as possible. I am also huge music fan and I love everything from 80’s pop, to Hip Hop to current pop and Drum & Bass. I have been visiting the Canary Islands for nearly 20 years and the next step is to move to one of the islands.

7 Must Read Facts About the Canary Islands

1) The Canary Islands were not named after canary birds! There are two theories to the naming of the islands and both include animals. One is that the name is derived from the Latin name Canariae Insulae, meaning “Island of the Dogs.” According to a historian, King Jubba II named the islands this due to the high number of large dogs on Gran Canaria. Further speculation is that the islands contained many Canis Marinus which is the Latin name for…

What To Drink In The Canaries

Many people default to Sangria when thinking about what to drink in The Canaries. But Sangria, although you’ll find it on offer everywhere in the resorts, isn’t typically drunk by Canarians. Here’s what we do drink regularly on the islands: Water Yes, I know, it’s boring. But the truth is, with our high temperatures and dry air, everyone drinks water all the time. Either “Con gas,” which is fizzy water, or “Sin gas. The tap water isn’t very pleasant, as…
