We all NEED a break – long or short – make TIME! Here are some comments from past happy travellers:

“

Kicki organised all the car hire and

activities on our recent family trip to New Zealand and it made life so much easier. I just told her the kind of thing we liked to do and she came up with some great suggestions. We all enjoyed the activities and it was all plain sailing. So much easier WKDQ KDYLQJ WR GR LW P\VHOI VR , ZLOO GHĆŹQLWHO\ be using her again.

Kicki helped us plan a trip for 3 weeks to

Thailand including city breaks in Singapore and Hong Kong on the way back. $OO WKH ĆŽLJKWV HWF ZHQW ZHOO DQG ZH appreciated the organised transfers in Singapore and HK. There were a couple of minor continuity issues, but Kicki sorted them out in time IRU LW QRW WR DĆŞHFW RXU WULS 7KH +RWHO LQ Hong Kong was upgraded and we really appreciated the superior view. Thank you for helping to make this family trip of a lifetime so smooth.

I recently asked Kicki to organise a

trip to Rome for my family and I. She did a wonderful job for us! She secured a

fantastic hotel, which was in view of the &ROLVHXP 7KH VWDĆŞ ZHUH VR ZHOFRPLQJ and we felt right at home. She also booked a fantastic tour of the local sights, DUUDQJHG WKH ĆŽLJKWV SOXV VXEPLWWHG DOO WKH information needed to check us in. It was such a great service and we had a lovely holiday. Thank you Kicki!
