“Mike is a total professional who goes out of his way to help me with my travel bookings.

I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a travel agent who will get you the best price at the same time providing an amazing service.

Thanks Mike.”

Mike loves his job – always a good sign and was very helpful with our recent trip to Vietnam and Laos, especially when it came to visa information! Mike easily arranged our travel insurance as well – my least favourite part of booking a holiday – with the best coverage and very good rates. Highly recommended.

“Incredible service! Quick to come back to all queries, great service and suggestions.”


Mike has been amazing…. has organised the best trips. I followed a recommendation to visit Bangkok which I never thought of visiting and it was amazing.

Mike does an amazing job n would never use anyone else again….10 out of 10 from me.

The best ideas, great rates, and an unbelievable personal service. 

Would recommend him to everyone.


I have used Mike for several bookings – he is super-efficient, is as cheap if not cheaper than online (but provides premium service!) and comes up with extras that make any trip a great experience.


Professional and reliable travel agent. would highly recommend.


Twice, when we were on the other side of the world, you came to our rescue! Once when our daughter had an anaphylactic reaction on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. You will never know how much your support was appreciated at this time! I think of it often. 

Secondly, to help our friend’s daughter travel from Naples to Amalfi on her own when our original plans fell through. You did not hesitate to help us, even though it was a Friday at 5.30 pm when we called you.

I will keep recommending you to everyone I know, and I wouldn’t book any trip without you!
