Zoe Dodd Specialist Sales Consultant
“I truly believe that travel is the key to happiness and even after 20 years, I am still discovering new destinations to explore.

I love nothing more than creating exciting itineraries for my clients that leave them with a lifetime of memories!”
Jessica Jones Specialist Sales Consultant

Paul Jones Specialist Sales Consultant
“I love discovering off the beaten track destinations and gathering plenty of first-hand experience which I can then share with clients and use to develop tailor made holidays that promise extraordinary experiences.”
