Inspirational Italy
Destination: Rome, Florence & Venice

There are simply not enough stars on this review. In fact, there are not enough stars in the sky to award this lady. I hadn't had any time off in 3.5 years. I commissioned Lesley to plan me a bespoke holiday to Italy, a place I had never been before.Lesley did this and so much more. She arranged everything, including the flights, the hotels, the transfers by road, rail and even the water taxis in Venice. This was, indeed, the holiday of a lifetime.A million thanks Lesley. You really do go the extra mile and do it all with the personal touch xx

Ahh thank you so much Dee. You are more than welcome, I know how important this trip was for you and I'm so glad you had an amazing time x

Destination Wedding
Destination: Blue Waters, Antigua

From the moment I met Lesley at The National Wedding Show in London, in September 2017, I knew that I could trust her to organise the travel for my destination wedding. She seemed very capable, knowledgeable and hearing that she had had a destination wedding herself put my mind at ease. At the time, my then fiancé and I did not know exactly where we wanted to get married, and Lesley was incredibly patient with me; answering all my questions and emailing over quotes from all the various places I was interested in - and there were a lot! In the end, we decided on Blue Waters Resort & Spa in Antigua, and Lesley made the whole booking process so easy.We have just returned from Antigua, as Mr and Mrs, and we had the most amazing wedding and stay at the resort. From the moment we landed in Antigua to the moment we left, we were treated like VIPs!Thank you, Lesley for your expert guidance and patience, and for helping to create my dream wedding.

Hi Donna, Thank you so much. I'm so glad you had a magical wedding at Blue Waters Antigua x

Great Service!
Destination: Santorini

This was my first time booking with Lesley, I did have reservations as I normally book with the large operators but Lesley was personally recommended. I gave Lesley our destination, preferred dates, flight times and budget and within a couple of minutes on the telephone she came back with all our requirements. After discussing the offer with my partner and checking hotel reviews we called Lesley back to proceed.We have just returned from our week in Santorini, the Alia hotel was lovely and quiet just the right distance from the beach at Kamari. It seemed a very popular hotel but not overcrowded, the staff were fantastic. We had asked for a sea view but at the time of booking we were told that only a garden view was available. We actually got both! We had a gorgeous sunrise every morning, from our first floor balcony, we were close to the airport but not so close that it was invasive, it was good to watch the planes coming in to land.Our airport transfers were by executive mini bus and the tour guides on Santorini were brilliant, giving us impartial assistance - local buses, car hire etc and not trying to sell us things we might not need that we have experienced elsewhere.My reservations were completely dismissed, we had a great time. Thank you very much Lesley.

Thank you Sue, I'm so glad you both had a great holiday in Santorini, it really is a beautiful island

Lesley dealt swiftly with every query and request and was absolutely brilliant throughout. Cannot recommend Lesley highly enough.

So pleased you had a wonderful honeymoon, it's a magical destination and congratulations to you both

Last minute family holiday
Destination: Kos, Greece

Being a networker I come across lots of different people. In my travels I have come across four travel advisors. It was the middle of August and I reached out to them for a last minute booking.It went as follows. One did not respond, One was on holiday, One came back with quotes which were double the budget. Then there was Lesley.Lesley and I had a conversation on the Wednesday evening. Where I set Lesley the challenge to fulfil our requirements. On the Thursday morning Lesley had some options to us. Thursdays are typically my busiest day. The earliest opportunity I had to review them was at 9:30pm in the evening. We decided on where we wanted to go and sent Lesley a message not expecting a reply till the morning.OH WERE WE WRONG!For the next 2 hours Lesley and I were messaging each other and then spoke and booked our holiday to leave on the Saturday. 11:30pm all booked and we are going on holiday. Lesley on the other hand still had lots to do with making sure our child's requirements were met and fulfilled. Enquiries with the Hotel etc.We arrived and everything was actioned and catered for. It was a relief as anyone who has been on holiday with a 16th month old child will know.We ended up having a fantastic holiday and are potentially looking at a short break before the year is out. Lesley will be our first port of call.Thank you for all your help and assistance.

You are more than welcome, I'm so glad you all had a good time.

Best time ever
Destination: Mauritius

Having recently returned from Mauritius booked by Lesley I can not recommend her enough.My Husband and I were wishing to Renew our Vows and Lesley found us the perfect hotel, with all the special trimmings too.The hotel was out of this world, the staff were amazing and Mauritius is such a stunning place to visit and relax. Lesley took into account all our 'needs'. Booked our required flight times, perfect hotel, organised our Renewal of Vows date, time and Wedding planner.  Every thing was just perfect.I highly recommend Lesley for her patience, knowledge and passion in her field.Thank you so much xxx

I'm so glad you and Mark had a great time on such a magical island xx

Married in Mauritius
Destination: Mauritius

I have worked with Lesley in travel and so knew how good she is and what she does. It was my wish to marry in Mauritius and my wish was granted. Lesley helped us decide on the right hotel and once the decision was made, I left everything to her. She managed to get us a room upgrade and also private transfers to and from the hotel. We got married in the beautiful spa garden at Heritage Awali, the day was perfect, and the hotel was amazing and so helpful once we were in resort. Lesley made my wish come true, and we would highly recommend her for organising the perfect get away. Thanks Lesley

I'm so glad you both had a magical time, your photos were amazing xx

California family road trip
Destination: California

WOW.  What an amazing Family Holiday we have just had thanks to Lesley. We decided to do San Francisco down to LA via Yosemite, Monterey, Pismo, Santa Monica with 2 young children, should be stressful. However, Thanks to Lesley arranging high standard hotels within a tight family budget with her expertise on ideal places to stay we had the road trip you can only dream of with surprisingly no stress. Not sure how she does it but would definitely 100% recommend her. In my lifetime, I have travelled and been to many places and can hand on heart say this was the most memorable holiday I have had - Thank you so much.

Thank you so much Jo, I'm so glad that you all had the most amazing adventure

Metsis Laguna Family Holiday
Destination: Crete

Lesley spent a great deal of time sourcing a number of different holiday destinations for us and our children. We asked for a lot and we compared what Lesley could offer to what was available elsewhere. Not only did Lesley manage to get us a destination that ticked all the boxes, she achieved it within budget and using her knowledge of the resorts, she helped us narrow the options down and ultimately select the right one for us.We have just returned from a week's break for a family or four having had great weather and a great time staying in a luxury hotel with exactly the right balance of fun and relaxation that we asked for.Thanks Lesley, we need to start thinking about next year now!

Hi Adam & Vanessa. I am so pleased you had a fantastic holiday and thank you for your lovely comments. lets start looking for 2018 🙂
