Arctic Highlights Expedition With Hurtigruten

We’ve booked our next adventure, this time we’re off to colder climes on a cruise expedition to discover the Arctic in December.

We are travelling with Hurtigruten, who are an…

Platea Madrid – Top Restaurants In One Place

We were recommended to visit Platea Madrid by some friends. If you enjoy good food, you need to go too! Think for a moment about those food halls large shopping centres sometimes have – the ones where you sit at tables in the centre, and then order your food from different restaurants around the outside. That’s exactly how Platea is, but the difference is instead of fried chicken, burgers and the like, you’re surrounded by top calls restaurants and bars.…

Ryan’s Kitchen, Franschhoek

We loved the look of Franschhoek on arrival, so decided to head into town from our hotel on our first evening. I wasn’t sure where to eat, we were still waiting to try South African cuisine, then I came across recommendations for Ryan’s Kitchen. Ryan’s Kitchen is easy to find, situated in the Place Vendôme Lifestyle Centre facing on to the main road through town. We decided to drive in as we had booked a wine tour for the following…

Wine Tasting in Franschhoek

Before we arrived in South Africa, I was convinced that we would use the Wine Tram to go wine tasting, their hop on, hop off service sounded like it could be fun. When it came down to booking it, I couldn’t decide which of the four tours to do, not knowing any of the wineries made it difficult, so we left the decision until we arrived at our hotel in Franschhoek. Osmond, the concierge at our hotel confirmed that the…

Boulders Beach Penguin Sanctuary

The African penguins that can be found on Boulders Beach near Simon’s Town, are a popular attraction for visitors to South Africa. The Boulders Penguin Colony was founded when a pair of African penguins were spotted on Boulders Beach in 1983, today there are around 1000 breeding pairs in residence at this sanctuary. These penguins were commonly referred to as “jackass penguins” due to the braying noise they make. The African Penguin has been registered as an endangered species since…

Franschhoek Motor Museum

Reading up about the Wine Region around Franschhoek, Julie spotted the fact that there was a classic car museum in the area, so we planned to drop in a check it out. The town is pretty small, so what I was expecting was a small collection of cars, probably owned by a keen local winemaker who had made a bit of money, and sunk some of it into a little hobby on the side. I thought we might spot some…

Den Anker, Cape Town

For our first dinner in Cape Town we both wanted to eat early and fancied seafood. After getting wet exploring the V&A Waterfront in the rain, we took shelter inside the Belgian speciality restaurant, Den Anker, which was conveniently on the quayside only a stone’s throw from our hotel. We didn’t have a reservation and the restaurant had a busy evening ahead of them, thankfully they took pity on us and offered us a table next to the fireplace. Having…

Meet our team

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.

Charlie Joyce

Travel Professional

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 Professional

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.

What they say about us

You must be the most efficient and well-organised person I’ve ever met!

Thanks for car hire info.
Thanks again for such amazing ‘Customer Service’

(so much vaunted these days, but generally not up to expectations).

 

Jonathan Ward

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.
