I was extremely lucky to have the opportunity to travel to Mexico on a trip to experience first-hand what this amazing destination has to offer. My expectations were truly exceeded by all the luxurious all-inclusive hotels, the beautiful white post card sandy beaches and turquoise warm waters. We started our trip with a direct flight from Gatwick on Virgin Atlantic which took 10 hours and arrived in Cancun to blue skies and very warm temperatures. I was in Mexico for seven nights and spent the first four nights at the Dreams Riviera Hotel and the last three nights at Secrets Maroma....

My Husband and I went on a weekend break for 3 nights to Prague and we flew direct from Dublin. From the minute we arrived we were keen to explore this fabulous city. Our hotel, The Caesers Palace was based about five minutes walk from the famous Charles Bridge, so we were very close to the majority of the sights and you can walk to nearly all the attractions. Flat shoes are highly recommended as some of the back streets are cobblestone! Over the three days we visited Prague Castle which has beautiful architecture and is full of character. We...

I used to be involved in the Scouts during my teenage years and thought going to a mobile/campsite was going back in time, we had a fantastic holiday. We brought our car by Ferry to Roscoff and travelled for an hour and half to Carnac to the campsite Le Grand Metairie in Brittany. The weather on arrival was fabulous and we were all in great form, the staff meeting us on site were super and our mobile home was ready with fresh linen and even "Barry's tea" for the Irish. The Mobile home was a Mercure which had a double bed in...

I was so excited to get the opportunity to travel to Trinidad & Tobago in the West Indies so on the 7th October we flew from Gatwick to Tobago via Grenada. After the 10 hour flight we were met on arrival by glorious sunshine and temperatures of 32 degrees. We transferred to the Turtle Beach by Rex Resort were we spent our first two nights. Our first day was a trip to Buccoo Reef, the largest coral reef in Tobago which was designated a marine park in 1973. We travelled on a glass bottom boat trip over the coral gardens...

When we booked our holiday, I must admit I was a little sceptical as I had never cruised before and it was our first holiday taking our 13 month old daughter. We flew from Dublin to Gatwick and transferred to the Port of Tilbury to board our home for 11 nights the MSC LIRICA. Embarkation was extremely well organised, from arrival at the port to opening the door to our Ocean view cabin took less than an hour, our cabin was bigger than I had expected even with a cot in the room there was adequate space. We explored the ship straight...

My Husband and I have travelled throughout Portugal over the last few years because we love it so much and the Portuguese people are so friendly and welcoming, very much like the Irish. We have visited many areas from the Capital Lisbon to Porto and Sintra up north and the Algarve down south. Lisbon is a historic capital, with a fusion of unusual character and charm. We stayed at the 4 star Avenida Palace which used to be a convent and was converted into a Hotel. The Hotel was full of grandeur and the staff extremely helpful. It is...

Brenda is super-efficient and friendly. She sorted out our family holiday and took all the stress away. I highly recommend this lady as she worked hard to meet all our needs and is also a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely be booking with her again.

This had been our first holiday for 11yrs - two tired parents, a teenager and a boy with special needs. Brenda had taken all our requirements into consideration and her attention to detail was outstanding. It was a matter of just packing and going. It was truly a wonderful experience with no added stresses or worries and a holiday that catered for us all! Thank you Brenda! We would certainly go to Brenda again for our next holiday.

Have to say that the level of service is fantastic, whenever I rang Brenda, she was always very polite and very, very helpful. It is like no task is too much for Brenda. Brenda certainly comes across as very efficient, hardworking, willing and honest when dealing with you. Brenda always seems to put 100% into your booking and would go to great pains to ensure that her clients are well looked after. I would and have recommended Brenda to people and will continue to do so. I wish Brenda all the best and hope she has much success in her work. No doubt I know I will be in touch with Brenda again for another holiday.

I found you to be extremely helpful and friendly. You planned most of our trip for us, leaving us with not much, if anything to organise. I will definitely be using you again and I have recommended you to my work colleagues and friends. Hopefully i will be in touch soon for another fantastic holiday. Again, many thanks Brenda. Paul F.

Patsy and I have been dealing with Brenda for almost two years now and on every occasion her service has been superb. While on holiday in Italy last year Patsy had a cardiac emergency. A phone call to Brenda sorted flights and accommodation leaving me free to deal with the medical end of things. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

As always Brenda's service is second to none. I love receiving my package of boarding passes, luggage labels pre-written and even a plastic bag for toiletries to comply with airport security.

I use Brenda for all my family's travel arrangements. What I love about her service is being able to contact her at anytime, her efficiency, and attention to detail. It is also important to me knowing that my holiday is secure with her company should anything go wrong rather than booking my own on the Internet.
