This was my first time to visit South Africa, even though it was a very short trip, Cape Town and the Winelands certainly lived up to everything I expected and more. We got off to a great start, flying with British Airways in business class! Their Club World combines premium levels of comfort and service with a spacious seat which converts into a fully flat bed - believe me on an 11hr flight makes such a difference. Delicious food, drinks, service and access to the private lounges and dedicated check-in desks and priority boarding made this a lovely experience. We...

This August we returned to Nerja for my brother Lee's wedding, Lee and Jessie choose Nerja following a holiday there in 2011 for my sister Linda's wedding, only one brother left to tie the knot so it could be three in a row! Nerja, often referred to as 'The Jewel of the Costa del Sol, is a beautiful seaside resort of sandy coves, cobbled streets, ice-cream parlour and many 'Plazas' of all shapes and sizes, some hidden away but worth finding. There are great places to just sit outside with a coffee or a beer...

Six colleagues and I received a fantastic opportunity to travel to Mexico visiting the beautiful resort of Cancun as well as the quieter resorts of Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos and Tulum. It was great to be able to visit eleven properties that I sell regularly and experience first-hand their hospitality, standard of accommodation and food (I love my food) and to sample some of what Mexico has to offer. Our first night was in the 5* Secrets Capri Resort. There is a classic Mediterranean feel to this hotel with stunning ocean views. All rooms are of the Preferred Club standard...

Last Christmas four of us decided we would book New York for a getaway break for this October, so after 10 months long wait we headed off on the 14th October for 5 nights and I have to say from the minute we got on the plane in Shannon everything was fantastic. We flew with Delta and they couldn't have done more for us. We had a pre-booked transfer to our hotel which took the pain away and we stayed at The Affinia Manhattan. The hotel was great, it is on 7th Ave & 31st street, straight across the road...

Last May we decided to book a last minute holiday to Alcudia. We had been there two years previous and really enjoyed it. This year ten of us went - three families, so to avoid any hassle or confusion I prebooked a mini bus to collect us at the airport, this worked out fantastic. We had three apartments in the Viva Sunrise aparthotel. These apartments are excellent, they're clean, spacious and both kids and adults are entertained. The entertainment for kids started early in the morning and continued until 10pm and my son is still talking about the...

My Travel Counsellor, Claudia Lane, organised a super trip to Nalpes and Sarrento for me on short notice. She was super efficient and professional. Our travel was made comfortable, easy and relaxing amid a busy schedule with FISU - International University Sports Federation Napoli 2019. We decided to extend our trip for another day to attend a match and again Claudia organised flights & accomodation on short notice. I would highly recommend Claudia to take the stress and hastle out of travelling and make it a memorable trip for you!

I don't know how we ever manage to go anywhere without Claudia's help! I email out of the blue with a half-baked idea and Claudia puts it all together for us. She makes it so easy to plan family trips and she takes all the stress out of it. Plus, nothing is ever too much trouble and she doesn't mind if we have to change things around..she just fixes it and makes it happen. She does all this with good humour and great patience!

We booked our honeymoon in Cuba with Claudia early in 2015 and she was absolutely fantastic. She got us such a fantastic deal, all-inclusive in the nicest hotels in Varadero and Havana - she also made sure they knew it was our honeymoon so we got a few treats! She was so easy to contact and always available to offer advice. She made the process a breeze, and it really was the trip of a lifetime! Anyone looking to book their honeymoon or any holiday should look no further - thanks again!

Claudia customised our holiday to visit our daughter in Australia this year for us and it was magical. Claudia heard everything I said and booked everything I wanted; from flights both international and internal, hotels, rental cars, insurance, visas and recomendations on places to visit. This would have been a mammoth task for us and we would probably have put it off, but for Claudia, the sky is the limit, nothing is a bother for her to organise. Claudia took the stress out of our trip and made this extra special trip for us one we will never forget. See you next time, and that's for sure. Everyone should have a Claudia holiday!

We had the trip of a lifetime.Thanks Claudia.

Claudia helped me recently with a suprise trip to Krakow for my husband's 40th birthday. The hotel was beautiful and right in the center of the city walking distance from all the main attractions through a beautiful park. Claudia also booked day trips for us and everything was perfect. I would highly recommend Claudia to help with your travel arrangements from the flights to the hotel and day trips everything was perfect. Thank you Claudia I couldn't have done it without you.

Claudia was a God send. I tried to book our honeymoon myself but with all the wedding planning I just couldn't do it. One call to Claudia and all was sorted hassle free.

I have a chronically ill child which made booking a holiday much more difficult than normal as we had very definite needs regarding the flight and our accommodation. Claudia went above and beyond my expectations in the planning and booking of our holiday. I would highly recommend her.

Myself and my husband have booked our last 5 trips with Claudia and we were not disappointed. We travelled to Mexico, Egypt three times, Menorca twice and everything went very smoothly from checking in at the airport to transfers. We are going on a cruise next and I have every confidence we will have no problem, Claudia is always on the phone if we have any questions and she is very professional and helpful.

Claudia booked us an amazing 5 night break in Vegas. Her advice regarding our accommodation choice was spot on. Everything was so smooth and stress free from the initial flight, the connecting flight and the hotel check in. I cannot recommend her enough. This is our third time using Claudia'a service and I will definitely be back to her again for our next trip. She is so helpful and experienced.

Claudia booked our honeymoon in April 2013. We travelled to Botswana, Zimbabwe and Dubai. Claudia managed to get us everything we looked for at a price that was excellent value for money. All of the hotels and tours she picked for us were excellent. We had flight delays but Claudia sorted all of our problems out from home with no stress. I would definitely use Claudia again and would recommend her.

This was the second time Claudia, organised my holiday for me and again I was very pleased with the professional service she gave me. For this holiday I simply gave her my budget and the times I wished to travel and she came up with several interesting options. She looked after flights, accommodation and hotel transfers. With Claudia looking after the booking I don't have to worry just enjoy.

We used Claudia to book our trip to Australia. She was just absolutely brilliant. She was so knowledgeable about the country and knew exactly what to advise us on, and to top it all she came up with an excellent price. We flew with Singapore Airlines and we were treated like royalty, recommended by the wonderful Claudia.
