Types of Holiday
My specialist subject! Africa truly awakens your senses, there is something earthy and primeval about being in the heart of the bush, listening to every snapping twig or munch of an elephant feeding outside your room ….
Ever wished you could wave a magic wand and sort out your family holiday in one swoop? Well now you can! Sailing, cycling, kayaking or just enjoying time together in a different environment, maybe learning new skills together – give me a call for your family holiday requests.
Fancy escaping from the dull, grey UK winter for a winter pursuit elsewhere around the globe? From the Northern Lights to Antarctic excursions, let me find a wintry adventure that will make you excited about the end of summer!
One of the main experiences of travel for me is trying new tastes and local cuisine. There are now ‘foodie’ holidays all over the world offering you the chance to learn to cook like a local! Taste the local specialities wherever you go.
While most couples do opt for tropical beach destinations, some prefer more adventure or want to combine activities with a bit of beach downtime. Why not take the opportunity to incorporate into your honeymoon one of your “must do” travels in your life?
Villa Holidays in Europe and worldwide for families, groups of friends, couples or even for hosting overseas weddings. Self contained luxury houses and villas with pools, private staff in fabulous holiday locations from the Med to the Caribbean!
There are hundreds of options for Natural History Holidays, either in escorted groups or with a private guide. Whether it is birds, plants or mammals that take your fancy, or you simply ‘must see’ a particular species, give me a call for advice in this, my specialist area of travel.
Cycle through lavender fields in Provence, vinyards in Spain or past the turquoise waters of the Aegean … or battle your way through deserts and mountains or round Asia and Africa… wherever you want to go there is a two wheel version of your holiday to be had!
Getting out on foot is one of the most rewarding ways to explore the world! Whether you want to just do short day walks or a more challenging trek through high mountains, there are hundreds of options to suit everyone.
Make the most of being so close to Europe! There are fabulous cities just a short hop away from us, full of history, culture and sight seeing. Wining and dining is one of the main attractions with the superb culinary delights of top restaurants within easy reach
If you want to explore new destinations but don’t want to be with a group of people or tied to a timetable, self drive is a great option. Motorhomes, cars or motorbikes, get in touch for a bespoke self drive holiday of your choice.
Travelling by train gives you the opportunity to see much more of a destination and in some cases traverse many countries and enjoy stunning scenery from the comfort of your train carriage.
Once the realm of the rich and famous, just about every country in the world now has a range of spa and relaxation options. From the luxurious to the curious, let me book you the perfect spa holiday!
Holidays for single travellers, join an adventure group or African safari, book a private guide or train trip, travel with other solo travellers or book a round the world backpacking adventure!
Horse Riding Holidays are a great way to experience destinations, getting exercise at the same time! There are rides to suit all ages and experiences, ranging from day trips – or just a few hours – pony trekking to advanced trails lasting for a week or more for experienced riders.
Early years of exploration, discovery and expeditions around the world have created a whole wealth of opportunities for the modern day traveller. Whatever you want to do, I can find a way for you to do it – challenge me to find you your particular adventure destination!
Travel is all about broadening the mind and experiencing the culture of a new destination is a highlight of any holiday. Culture can off course mean anything from music, crafts & sight seeing around Europe or staying in a tribal hut in the African bush or a mountain village in Nepal!
Whether you have never dived but want to learn or you are an experienced diver, there is a fascinating underwater world out there to be discovered! Take a look here for some ideas and give me a call.
Holidays to sporting events in the UK and around the world. Flights, hotels, transfers, tickets and hospitality. Follow your favourite sports – live! Motor racing, rugby, cricket, tennis – or even obscure sports … I’ll tailor a holiday to get you there.
Whether it’s a charity challenge, school ski trips or mountain hikes, cycling, hiking or kayaking or if are a member of a local club or society and want to arrange a trip for your group of friends to a part of the world which offers an experience of your special interest, give me a call.
Travelling for business can be stressful with long haul flights and dashing in and out of boardrooms, often leaving you no time to enjoy where you are in the world! Ask me for help with city hotels, flights, incentive groups, team challenges or conference venues.
Worried about all the stress and cost of a wedding in the UK? Can’t guarantee good weather on your big day? Rather spend that money on an exotic location and nicer honeymoon? Then pack up and escape!
Cruises, Sailing boats, Houseboats or Private Yachts – if you want to be on the water there are plenty of options! Take a look also at the Natural World Oceans section.
Escorted tours around the world, sightseeing, walking, river cruises, natural history or cultural. Lead by expert guides and tour leaders, large and small groups.
Give something back when you travel by taking part in volunteering projects and broaden your horizons, at the same time learning about life in different destinations. Give your time and skills to villages, schools, wildlife habitats and farming projects for a day, a week or longer!
