Nicola created our dream honeymoon and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She took all the drama and hassle out of the planning. Incredibly helpful and always friendly I can't sing her praises highly enough! I'd have no hesitation in recommending Nicola and her services; in fact I've already passed her details on to friends planning honeymoons and family members planning trips.

Hi Nicola thank you so much for taking away all the hassle in organising a fantastic honeymoon for us. We loved Langkawi and KL. Everything was perfect from start to finish and we never had to worry about flights/ transfers etc! Will definitely book with you again, thanks Sinead n Will xx

I found Nicola great to deal with, she understood what holiday I wanted and kept within a budget I had given her and she planned the perfect holiday for me.

We have always found Nicola extremely helpful and knowledgeable when we have booked our holidays with her. Any questions or requests are dealt with promptly. She is always cheerful on the other end of the phone. We would definitely recommend Nicola to all our family and friends.

I have been booking holidays with Nicola for a number of years and the service I have received is next to none. She goes over and beyond to make sure every aspect of a holiday is what the customer requires. I would highly recommend booking any holiday through Nicola as you can guarantee that everything about your holiday will be sorted for you.

Nicola did a fantastic job organising our honeymoon in June 2012. We simply gave her our budget and asked her what she could find for us. She came up with at least four different ideas, all of which sounded great. Organising our final choice - Sorrento and Rome - was easy to do, we paid the money and Nicola gave us a detailed itinerary with everything we needed to know. Thanks a million!

I started my journey to Cuba in Cork, travelling via Amsterdam to Havana. On arrival at Havana Airport, the first thing I noticed was the humidity; it was so warm with a beautiful slight breeze and 30 degrees. It was very welcome though after leaving 12 degrees back home in Ireland! There is a currency exchange desk at the exit of the airport to exchange your Euro's to CUC's. Transfer from the airport to Havana city was very convenient, this was pre-booked which was ideal as lots of 'taxi traders' hailing you towards their taxi and after a long flight, and...

A short city break to Munich was such a treat. This amazing, historical, beautiful city has so much to offer from open top bus tours to beer gardens, from BMW museum visits to shopping - Munich has indeed something for everyone. With a super rail service too, a trip to Austria is hassle free and makes a great 2 centre holiday option for something a little bit different. We stayed at the 'Flemings City' Hotel which was located directly across the street from the main train station so arrival from the airport proved very easy in finding our hotel. The...

We travelled from Dublin direct to Larnaca, Cyprus on October 3rd. The flight was approx 5 hours and the transfer on arrival was 40 minutes to our fabulous hotel, Le Meridien Limassol Resort & Spa. We spent 7 nights in a Spa Wing room which was wonderful. This is the adult only wing of the hotel which was ideal for us. The rooms are excellent, very spacious and looking over the sea and pools of the hotel. Staff at Le Meridien were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. When we choose our sunbeds in the morning, a staff...

After a short two and a half hour flight from Shannon to Faro, our taxi took us to the 'Vila Galaeo' just outside the popular resort of Vilamoura on the Algarve coast. The Galaeo villas located side by side in a cul de sac of approx 40 villas. One has 4 bedrooms and the other 3. Car rental, in my opinion is essential here as the resort centre is approx 2 miles away. Temperatures were quiet hot, reaching 32 degrees, very hot for that time of year but as the Algarve is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, it didn't seem unbearable...

A short 3 night break to Dubai enabled me to visit a number of hotels and experience luxury like never before. This developing Arabic city is experiencing a huge development of new hotels & apartments which will continue for a number of years yet. The most important piece of advice I can offer to anyone travelling to Dubai on a holiday is to stay at the Jumeirah beach area of Dubai and definitely book a sea view room. The building work in Dubai continues 24 hours a day and so a good night sleep cannot be guaranteed if you've taken...

I've been to the wonderful island of Lanzarote for the third time and I never get tired of it! Excellent restaurants, short stroll to the beach and year round sunshine, something for everyone! I stayed in Puerto Del Carmen each time which gives easy access to great beaches, shopping and dining - everything for a relaxing break anytime of the year. My first visited included a 7 night stay at the Los Hobiscos Apartments which are very well located, basic apartments but clean and they have a beautiful large swimming pool to relax and enjoy some sunshine. I had the...

My journey through Vietnam, Cambodia & Northern Thailand was truly wonderful, from the local people to the immense culture and the amazing sights, it is definitely a trip I will never forget. The holiday began with an overnight stay in Bangkok, the Shangri La Hotel was located superbly within easy reach to any area of the city. The staff at the hotel were most helpful and organised a city tour while we were there. Onwards to Hanoi in northern Vietnam where the city life was both exciting and charming. We took a cyclo tour which was almost terrifying as traffic was...

I would like to share with you the wonders of New York as I experienced it. When I experience a place so amazing, I am unable to keep it a secret! In April 2005, my husband and I travelled to New York for our 5th Wedding Anniversary. On arrival I had a stretch limousine booked to take us to our hotel - The Novotel on Times Square, as a treat which meant our special trip started with great excitement. Driving towards the city was amazing, the spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline in the distance was truly 'jaw dropping'. Whilst in...

One month's honeymoon in Australia was simply wonderful. A land of endless adventure, beaches, sights and what about the Great Barrier Reef! Wow! Our first 5 nights at the Colonial Club in Cairns was exactly what we needed after a long flight. Time to chill and relax and then so many excursions to give us a taste of this breathtaking area of Australia. We took a day trip through the enchanting rainforest and a trip on the scenic Kuranda Skyrail, snorkelled and dived in the reef and then lazed on the white coral sands. On the morning of check-out from the...

Our sensational trip to South Africa started with 5 nights at the Holiday Inn Waterfront in Capetown. The scenery in Capetown is spectacular. The cost of living is so reasonable there which makes eating out, shopping, carhire and excursions an easy treat for all budgets. We took a trip to Table Mountain, Robbin Island, The Winelands and a city tour to mention just a few. After out 5 nights in Capetown, we collected our car rental and drove the scenic through the Garden Route spending 3 nights on route and finishing up at Port Elizabeth. The beach here was beautiful but...
