Take your children to experience new cultures and learn about history and exploration, wonder at wildlife and maybe learn local crafts and skills. Trek though mountain villages in Morocco, cycle in France, sail round Turkey, snorkel with turtles or dolphins, camp out in the desert, learn how to track with the Maasai in Kenya, have a go at Aboriginal painting in Australia, play cowboys and Indians in America or how about learning to make pizza in Italy? These are just a few suggestions – call me for a chat and let me find you the perfect family holiday. Watch this gorgeous video from The Safari Collection in Kenya – showing a multitude of safari experiences families can enjoy here!

Keep an eye on our special offers and specific school holiday ideas, such as for half term holidays and the Christmas and New Year winter holidays. Take your children to the amazing winter wonderland of Lapland to see Santa in a non commercial environment and meet his reindeer herd!  Half term is a popular time for family skiing holidays or maybe you want some winter sun in February?

We often get asked when is the right age to take children on an African Safari or where is the best place to go for family friendly wildlife interaction.  For very young children it’s best to stick to non-malarial areas of South Africa but from about age 8 upwards, there are specialist family safari options all over the continent. Kwande have a fabulous young childrens programme including teaching them baking skills!

South-Africa-Kiddies-cookin

Zambia has some amazing family houses and specially adapted camps and some great options in South Luangwa for family safaris combining bush skills, local culture and wildlife. In Botswana there is a ‘Young Explorers’ club which teaches children how to fire a bow and arrow, fish from a dugout canoe and bake in a bush oven.  Kenya has lots of family friendly camps and chances for your children to mix with the Maasai and learn bush craft and meet others their age and some fabulous horse riding holidays in the Rift Valley.

Kenya---horse-riding

Asia is great value for money and has something to interest families of all ages. Thailand and Malaysia offer fabulous beaches, tropical jungles combined with elephant treks, meeting Orang Utans or learning to cook local foods. Have a look at the fabulous Elephant Hills experience where you can wash and feed the animals.

If you have 3 weeks or more, let us help you plan the trip of a lifetime ‘down under’.  Australia offers a huge range of experiences for children from snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef to cooking on a billy can in the outback or cuddling a koala! USA and Canada offer a huge number of options for active families. We can arrange a self drive if you want to hire a motorhome maybe tour around the parks and canyons of the ‘wild west’ or travel through California. Theme parks are always popular in Los Angeles and of course Florida, but if you want a large villa then book early as summer in particular in Florida is in demand.  If you want something more adventurous and to escape the crowds of Disney then maybe consider a Ranch Holiday?  There are loads of family friendly options throughout the States, White Stallion Ranch in Arizona is one option (which also combines well with a self drive around the Grand Canyon region).  Camping adventures in the parks are also popular holidays and in Canada you can take your family to Niagara Falls or into the parks for outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking and camping. Here is a group family trip to New York and Nigara in the summer.  South-Africa-Kwandwe-kids-s

Some of the family adventures we  can organise involve you spending time with other families in villages or on volunteer projects around the world in places such as Morocco or Vietnam for
example. Being independent, we can offer you a great range of activity and adventure holidays to suit all ages and family sizes.  There are organised tours focused on families which help with the budget and let your children mix with others of a like minded background. Some tours are geared to teenagers, some to younger children and there are single parent departures too.

If you prefer to do your own thing we will create a tailor made holiday just for your family. Don’t get lost searching on the internet – call us today on 01728 748209, use the live chat or fill out the enquiry form and we will wave that magic wand to tailor the perfect family holiday!

 

This was our 3rd holiday booked with Travel With Jules. Everything was perfect - the details about the cruise, the paper work, including the little Bruges guide and the map you sent us. Bruges is a beautiful and charming city. Thank you Jules and Mags for organising it. We have already booked our next holiday to Sicily with TWJ and highly recommend their travel services.
Anna Alcalde-Mills – Cruise to Belgium (May-June 2017)
June 9, 2017

As a very busy local business owner and family man I do not have the time or energy to flick through hundreds of High Street Travel agents brochures. This is why I use Julie and Mags at Travel with Jules. These lovely ladies ask questions and talk to you to find what your "perfect" holiday would be. Having booked several times with them they now know what we as a family enjoy doing on holiday.
Darrell & Vicki – Kefalonia (Greece) May 2017
June 7, 2017

Our whole trip was expertly planned which was amazing considering we were in a different hotel every night. In fact every hotel was superb, this wasn't just the facilities and breakfasts but the first class attention we got at each one. This wasn't luck, it was your expert knowledge that meant we were in the best locations on our route. There is nothing we would change from our trip apart from going again…it was perfect!! Thank you.
McCall Family – South Africa (April 2017)
April 27, 2017

You picked some great places to stay we would probably not have found ourselves. Your local knowledge came in very handy when planning the itinerary - we would not otherwise have known the best direction to do the Pacific Highway nor thought of going to Laguna beach which turned out to be a brilliant place. Also the advice to get FastPass tickets for Universal. You made the booking of the flights and car very easy and those bits of the journey went very smoothly.
Davies Family – California (April 2017)
April 24, 2017

It was amazing and everything went like clockwork. The highlight was Noes Nest. I can't really describe how good it was. Breakfast was immense with such variety, taken in a large kitchen round the table with whichever guests were up at that time. The property is is a good area only 10 minutes from the city centre via the DART (tube), with loads of cool shops and bars within walking distance. It really was perfect. Alcatraz was immense. So in summary you nailed it again!
Waine Family – USA San Francisco (April 2017)
April 14, 2017

Thank you for booking another amazing holiday for us! Excellent communication about travel details, quick response to any questions and good advice about which trip would suit us best as I was finding it a minefield of possibilities! Highlights were Husky sledding, snowmobiling and the reindeer farm, but really we loved it all. Will be back to book the next holiday!
Molloy Family – Lapland (April 2017)
April 14, 2017

Thank you so much for your hard work putting together our fabulous three generation family safari to Northern Tanzania. We loved everything and the highlight was our private Serengeti Camp. We all had an AMAZING time at our private camp in the Serengeti. Our hosts at the camp were all fantastic. We saw an incredible amount of wildlife and the migration was something else, we were surrounded 360 degrees by wildebeest!
Aldersley Family – Tanzania Safari (Feb 2017)
February 26, 2017

The trip was amazing! Everything went smoothly - pre travel we received great service from Travel With Jules - Timely communication, great information. All worked well. Nellim Wilderness Lodge was amazing. The staff and the Nordic reps (Katie and Chloe) were fabulous with the children. If I had to pick two highlights it would be the Husky sledging and the Northern Lights.
Hogan Family – Lapland (Dec 2016)
December 27, 2016

Had a great time with my brother and his family at Al Aqah thank you! They upgrade us and we had our own little wing of the 19th floor! The hotel was excellent. Great quality of food. The beach front restaurant Gonu was great for us. Proper 5 star service. I strongly recommend you book everyone on the dine around all inclusive as paying directly for drinks was ridiculously expensive!
Steve Cole – Fujairah UAE (Oct 2016)
November 4, 2016

Service from Travel with Jules was first class! You guys were great and helpful and patient…. All very good on the organisation side of things. The chef at the villa produced lovely food and the weather was great. The couple of trips into Rome itself went really well, the guide was a real star! The swimming pool at the villa was lovely and it was nice that they kept it open for us.
Italy – villa and Rome tours – Angus family (Oct 2016)
October 13, 2016

Thank you for booking our family holiday for us. Everything you organised worked very well. The villa in Florida was lovely and in a great location with short distances to all the Disney parks.
Rutland Family – Florida villa (August 2016)
October 17, 2016

We are back safely and rested after an AMAZING holiday to Namibia. We had such a lovely time. The whole trip was perfectly planned and it went really well - so thank you. Everything was a highlight! The self drive was great. Being back in Africa - the landscape, the animals, the people. We had time together - that was the best of all, thank you. Service rating excellent! You were flexible and patient when our plans/ needs changed. You were always accessible and helpful.
Namibia self drive – Conn Family (Aug 2016)
August 23, 2016

Jules is always happy to help, no matter how big or small the trip and gives great advice. The whole trip was wonderful. Both Maui and Oahu are spectacular, yet very different in character. Lots to see and do. Kayaking, waterfalls, great scenery, sunrise at the Haleakala volcano.
Hawaii Island Hopping – Abbot family (Aug 2016)
August 24, 2016

The holiday was great, and different from our usual - was great not to have a car! Some of it surprised us how much we liked things we hadn't tried! Villa Anatoli was just beautiful. Quiet, relaxed, in a brilliant location where we could walk to the beach and the harbour for evening meals and the view blew us all away. A lovely part of the the chilling out process. We are totally refreshed and had a great break - is it too early to plan for next summer?!
Island Hopping in Greece – Waine Family (August 2016)
August 13, 2016

Excellent correspondence & local knowledge prior to travel was very useful, Julie and her team were excellent throughout the booking process and whilst we were away. We loved the villa, the scale of how large the villa was didn't come across on the website pages so to see it in front of us was breathtaking! Thank you for a lovely holiday x
Portugal Villa- Holland & Hines family (July 2016)
August 17, 2016

Thailand was great we had an amazing time thank you so much! We loved both the hotels and their locations and would highly recommend both. Resort recommendation was excellent. I'm not sure we would have come across these hotels on our own and they were both exactly what we were looking for. Also thank you for getting such a good price for us. I was surprised that this holiday was not more expensive! Highlights -
Molloy Family – Thailand (July 2016)
August 10, 2016

Thank you for finding and booking this hotel for us - we could not fault this place - perfect if you are looking for a nice relaxing holiday. Food, rooms, staff, beach all fab (might need jelly shoes to get in water as slightly rocky at waters edge (we managed) but once in the water sandy bottom and beautifully clear and lovely to swim in. We popped into town a couple of nights all very pleasant and nice atmosphere. A great holiday thank you xxx
Greece Thessaloniki – Brooks family group x 10 (July 2016)
August 10, 2016

Well what a fantastic time we have had in Majorca. We can not thank Jules and Mags enough. The team at Travel with Jules do not just 'do holidays' they create memories and priceless family time together. Our days were relaxed and we made full use of the car hire exploring the island. In the evenings we walked along the promenade in Port de Pollenca we had our evening meals in different local restaurants. I could not find fault with any of our package booked with Travel with Jules. The personal service from Jules and Mags was a highlight and the build up and excitement!
Darrell & Vicki Smith – Spain Mallorca (May 2016)
June 6, 2016

I have always been an independent traveller booking the holidays by myself as I found it was the only way to get what I wanted, however with Jules, I have found she has a great understanding of what customers need and since she organised our USA road trip last year I have not considered the DIY option any more. Jules and Mags managed to find a perfect holiday again, within the budget, leaving the time for me to plan what I want to do during the holiday.We loved being able to discover the island at leisure, this was the best part of our holiday. The information we received in advance (booking pack with maps, leaflets) was extremely helpful....
Anna Alcalde-Mills – Greece, Kefalonia (May 2016)
June 9, 2016

Excellent driving infrastructure and incredibly good value for money. In hindsight we should have had a bigger car! We did enjoy our stay in South Africa and can highly recommend many of the hotels and guest houses, staggering scenery, lovely helpful people, incredibly sophisticated cooking (we didn’t have any meals that would be bettered in London!).
Peter, Jean & Hetty – South Africa (April 2016)
May 4, 2016

Thank you again for your help in organising our Easter family holiday to the Al Waha Shangri-La - the early check in and requests for facilities in the room for our baby worked perfectly! The VIP meet and greet at the airport on arrival took the stress out of arriving in the heat with 3 children and highly recommend it!
Cole Family – Oman (April 2016)
May 24, 2016

You gave us good knowledge of the county which gave me confidence in you from our first conversation. Easy to communicate with and get hold of. I always want to feel in control of my holiday and I felt able to discuss and make changes to your initial itinerary. Highlights included the Skiing in Whistler & the guide we had for Niagara falls. We loved Vancouver and did the whale watching cruise and float plane ride.
Pearman Family – Canada (March 2016)
May 30, 2016

We had the most wonderful time thank you so much!! We loved the safari in South Luangwa. Danforth yachting (Lake Malawi) was great fun - we enjoyed all the activities. Kaya Mawa was gorgeous we had a great time and the food was fantastic!! All in all a hugely successful trip so thank you for putting it all together for us. We will definitely recommend you to friends
Brown Family – Zambia & Malawi (March 2016)
May 20, 2016

Jean and I are fairly familiar with safari travel and Zambia would be the first place that I would recommend to any newcomers. The help of the Africa Tours reception on arrival in Lusaka which you arranged for us is a bonus. One of the wildlife highlights was seeing a pack of wild dogs on their kill.
Nick, Jean and Jackie – Zambia (March 2016)
March 29, 2016

The trip was amazing and we got to see the Northern Lights on Saturday and Sunday nights so that’s a bonus right there! Everything went without a hitch and we are all very grateful for your professional organisation.
Alex, Jovi & John – Boys Holiday to Iceland! (January 2016)
January 13, 2016

Nellim Wilderness Lodge was everything we wanted from this holiday and was worth the extra travelling to get to. We loved seeing the Northern lights and the husky team driving was a highlight for all the adults. The kids loved all the excursions and the lack of pressure on timings meant that we all enjoyed the holiday more.
Rutland Family – Santa’s Lapland (Dec 2015)
December 23, 2015

The meeting with Santa was perfect, they took us out on a snow mobile excursion then as we got to the forest we could see lights flickering in a cabin and went to take a look and found Santa! All the activities plus sledging was right outside the lodge. We loved it so much we might go back again!
Shaylor Family – Lapland (December 2015)
January 8, 2016

Another amazing family holiday - thank you so much! Al Aqah Beach Resort was gorgeous, couldn't do enough for us and the food was really good, being able to dine around on the all inclusive you booked for us was a real bonus. We loved our upgraded apartment and the facilities and would highly recommend this hotel, we may well return!
Cole Family – UAE Fujairah (October 2015)
May 24, 2016

I cannot fault the service from Travel with Jules. The organisation of the holiday was great and I felt very confident that we would have a positive experience and we certainly did!
Claire Welch – Turkey (Oct 2015)
December 7, 2015

America was terrific, excellent music and absolutely extraordinary history and intriguing places to stay, we enjoyed every stop but have become great fans of the B&B venues. I would recommend them all, so thanks for organising those, we'd have missed them if left to our own devices. Eye opening "Southern Hospitality"
Powis Family – USA Deep South (Oct 15)
December 23, 2015

Engelberg was a really good place to be based with plenty of outdoor activities, our room was huge with gorgeous views. We did hiking, biking, kayaking, glacier trip and even cooking on a camp fire! Thanks again to Jules and Mags for arranging this - our holiday was a stress-free experience and I'm sure we'll be back!
Proctor Family – Switzerland (August 2015)
September 20, 2015

The villa you found was absolutely perfect. It was peaceful but within walking distance of everything we needed. It was our best family holiday ever.
Waine Family – Kefalonia, Greece (August 2015)
August 31, 2015

Our family holiday to Croatia in August was amazing. The transfers went literally like clockwork – that was majorly impressive. No waiting for more than a minute – literally. The island of Brac was stunning. We loved Postira and as we had friends staying nearby so we visited them and an aqua park with water slides.  Taxis […]
Prew Family – Croatia (August 2015)
August 20, 2015

We had a lovely time on our recent family holiday to Cyprus (Paphos – Olympic Lagoon Resort) – the hotel is all shiny and new so very clean. Food was very good, lots of choice and presented very well. We preferred to eat in the buffet style restaurant as more choice. The children did go in […]
Brooks Family – Cyprus (July 2015)
July 27, 2015

In my view life is too short NOT to use Julie's experience and contacts when booking a holiday! I couldn't recommend Travel With Jules more highly.
Nicky Fussell – several destinations (July 2015)
July 3, 2015

We have been using Travel With Jules for a while now for all our holidays, both as a family unit and as a couple and feel that they now know our preferences and have not failed to please so far -with superb hotels booked in Italy and St Lucia!
Julia & Peter Cole – Portugal (May 2015)
July 10, 2015

We covered 1150 miles, discovered beautiful places and had such a great time we can't wait to save the money and do something similar soon. Thank you very much :)
Anna, Nigel and Sofia Alcalde-Mills – USA (April 2015)
June 12, 2015

My 6 and 8 year old daughters loved every minute and didn't want to come home, it was a perfect family holiday, with plenty to do and very educational for them but fun at the same time
Moss Family – Costa Rica (April 2015)
May 18, 2015

New York was awesome – One of the few places I would go back to in a heartbeat. The itinerary you put together with the accommodation and pre-booked tours (Empire State Building, hop on and off buses, bike tour in Central Park and the river cruise) were perfect – a big thank you!
Waine Family – New York (April 2015)
April 25, 2015

I know you said our 'limo' booked was just a local reference to a luxury car but when we were met on arrival it WAS a stretch limo!!
Lloyd Family – Tenerife (April 2015)
April 23, 2015

Our family holiday to Lapland was truly wonderful, totally memorable and we have so many fantastic memories so thank-you for everything you did for us. We have throughly recommended your service to our friends as you made what was turning out to be an internet search nightmare into a total pleasure. You provide a fantastic service that is worth its weight in gold.
Swanson Family – Lapland (Feb 2015)
August 18, 2015

Lapland, the activities and our log cabin chalet and the private chef was amazing, everything was perfect. The host we had was 1000% faultless to the point that the boys cried when they left and I think that was down to him more than Santa lol! Thanks again for arranging it all given the very short notice - we will be returning to you for future holidays.
The Prince Family – Lapland (December 2014)
December 29, 2014

Our Caribbean holiday to Windjammer Landing (stayed in a 2 bedroom pool villa) was fab and the place worked well with lots to do for the kids. Food was excellent as long as you kept away from the buffet evenings. The steaks were some of the best I have had so no idea where their […]
Morgan family – St Lucia Caribbean (December 2014)
January 8, 2015

We stayed at the Hotel Iso-Syote over New Year for eight nights and had another magical visit to Finland. Our party was two adults and two children and we decided to book a Fjell Top cottage to give us a little independence, but only a very short walk (maybe 100 metres) from the main hotel […]
Hedditch Family – Finland (December 2014)
January 23, 2015

The safari experience was priceless for my son Alex, who learnt so much and had a genuine holiday of a lifetime. Thank you very much for helping us choose and putting together such a superb holiday.
Julie Smith – Tanzania (October 2014)
November 30, 2014

Thank you to Travel With Jules for co-coordinating our rail and accommodation arrangements for our rail holiday to France and Italy – I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of our friends requiring similar help. All rail bookings were as requested  and documentation clear. In particular the Turin/Rome, Rome/Napoli and Napoli/Rome train journeys […]

May 29, 2015

Our holiday was great, thank you – Thanks for arranging everything and being very responsive with our issues whilst travelling – that was much appreciated. The highlights included the bikes (amazing!), riding through the passes and older roads – we did a great diversion into the Rockies north of Santa Fe – some of the old […]
McKenzie Family – USA Route 66 (Sept 2014)
October 8, 2014

We had a fabulous time in Zambia and Malawi, thank you.  The safari (Thornicroft Lodge) was amazing and we saw everything we wished to and the safari guide was excellent.  You were right on the length of time staying there, it was just right. Malawi again was lovely (Norman Carr Cottage, Lake Malawi), great hosts and a […]
Stammers family – Zambia & Malawi (August 2014)
November 2, 2014

Thank you for organising an amazing holiday to Tanzania for us. We had a fantastic time with a great balance of activity, rest, safari, beach and other visits. We were very well looked after, from the people meeting us at each transfer to the fantastic staff at all three Tent with a View locations.
Atkins Family – Tanzania (August 2014)
September 23, 2014

Julie managed to find us the most wonderful villa on the gorgeous island of Lefkas (which we had never heard of!) that we would never have known about going through the normal route of booking a holiday ourselves. Everything worked like clockwork from the flights to the hire car pick up and to being met at the Villa by the owner himself.
Claire Ambler – Greece (August 2014)
August 26, 2014

Just got back from Spain / Portugal and wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for booking our summer holiday – everything worked brilliantly. The Old Mill was incredible – I have no idea how you found it. The whole family loved it, and the owners were amazing. Do you fancy arranging […]
Waine family – Andalusia, Spain (August 2014)
August 18, 2014

It’s hard to find fault if Theme Parks and attractions are your thing! For this holiday as you know it was a bit of a compromise but the kids really enjoyed themselves which is all that matters. The luxury villa was exceptional – fully equipped and in lovely condition. A great location for getting to […]
Mark Dixon – Orlando, Florida (July-Aug 2014)
September 2, 2014

We absolutely loved Malawi and the whole itinerary was perfect! You were very efficient in sorting it all out, we could not fault a thing. Mountain biking, hiking, boat safaris and Lake Malawi - all very different and all great fun!
The Mack Family – Malawi (July 2014)
August 13, 2014

I just wanted to say thanks for arranging our holiday to Finland, you came up trumps again! The resort had everything we wanted, as you had told us, so we were able to go skiing as well as all the excursions (dog sledding, snowmobiles) you booked for us. The snow and scenery were fantastic, just like the brochure, which was amazing. And it was VERY cold. Quite an experience. So thanks again for your patience, understanding and organisation. We will be back, so brace yourself!
Holland Family – Finland (Feb 2014)
March 12, 2014

Our packed holiday included fly-camping and bucket showers, walking with Samburu warriors and camels, brilliant safari experts and ‘real’ local knowledge, masses of fun on the jeep in the Masai Mara, wonderful food, stunning scenery and wildlife, white sandy beaches and lovely warm seas..... You got it just right for us. You will have to go some to better this next time – that is your challenge!
Balmer Family – Kenya & Tanzania safari (Dec 2013)
January 10, 2014

We had a great time in Lapland and apart from no northern light sightings it lived up to expectations! The Nellim Wilderness Lodge was great and the apartment perfect for a family with the added bonus of our own private sauna. The staff were so friendly and relaxed which gave the hotel a wonderful warm […]
Ros Rayman – Lapland (Dec 13)
January 4, 2014

Just wanted to thank you for organising and booking our trip to Lapland. We had an amazing time, it all exceeded our expectations. The NellimWilderness Lodge and it’s staff are just magical!
Pallister Family – Lapland (Dec 13)
January 4, 2014

Our holiday was absolutely brilliant, thank you! I would recommend Nellim to anyone - they look after you brilliantly and we didn't want to leave.We saw the Northern Lights and loved the dog sledding and snow mobiles.
Hedditch Family – Helsinki & Lapland (Dec 2013)
January 4, 2014

We'd all like to say a big thank you for your help in organising our trip to Harriniva Lodge in Lapland this Christmas. We had an amazing time, truly the trip of a lifetime and an experience none of us will ever forget. Meeting Santa was a moment of pure magic!
Parnwell Family – Lapland (Dec 13)
January 4, 2014

Our stay at Thornicroft Lodge in South Luangwa was a great experience. We stayed for four nights and did two game drives every day – the drives were very relaxing and we saw all the animals that we expected to see and then returned to the Lodge for a brunch or dinner that never failed […]

Our holiday to Greece was perfect. The cottage was great, the resort was very child friendly. Not too expensive and really nice beach. Thanks for finding it for us! (stayed at Marguerita Cottage in Stoupa)
Holden Family – Greece Peloponnese (August 2013)
August 27, 2013

Lets start by saying a big thank-you for all your help. Our idea of having a Europen adventure in the car (as an alternative to our usual sailing holidays) came last year after watching Micheal Portillo on the mountain trains in Switzerland and our desire to encorage our daughters interest in  history by visiting Rome. […]
Young Family – Road trip to Italy (August 2013)
August 27, 2013

Lovely people, lovely food …. fascinating culture, the elephants rocked! Thanks for everything you did this time round Jules. We have been so fortunate to visit amazing places in the past – but this (and the consensus of all) was the holiday to top all holidays.
Long family – Thailand (July 2013)
August 8, 2013

Just returned from our fabulous holiday that you arranged for us to Malaysia. Everything ran like clockwork – all the arrangements and pick ups (good drivers and vehicles from Discovery Overland Holidays), the accommodation was superb and we had many great experiences.  We did not see rain, surprisingly for this region in June, there was […]
The Buck Family – Malaysia (June 2013)
July 4, 2013

Our holiday to Egypt was great! The Stella di Mare Beach Hotel was lovely and we had an fabulous time. I got my Open Water and the children their Advanced Open Water ..... the instructors at Desert Rose were brilliant .... We even went for a Night Dive which was amazing. We ate most nights at the Asian restaurant which was perfect for us. We would definitely return to Sharm, thank you for organising it.
Tierney Family – Egypt, Sharm el Sheikh (April 2013)
April 30, 2013

Our holiday to Disneyland Paris was FANTASTIC!!! We all enjoyed it very much, even my in-laws. The boys were tired out the whole week. The hotel (Disney Santa Fe) was perfect as it was all based around the film 'cars' so Lightening McQueen was everywhere. The food vouchers were great value for money as most of them were all you can eat buffets so perfect for the 8 of us as we all like different food. Thanks you so so much for your help in booking the holiday, and accommodating all the family and the different channel crossings.
Dreher Family – Disneyland Paris (April 2013)
April 30, 2013

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for organizing at late notice our holiday to Sweden. We had the most amazing time and got to see the Northern Lights on three nights, so we were really lucky. The trips were very well organized, the food was delicious and the people were charming. Camp Ripan was a great place to stay too. Thanks again for making it all happen for us.
Furley-Strandburg Family – Sweden (January 2013)
February 14, 2013

Our escape from the January UK snow to Cuba was utterly terrific!! Both hotels were fantastic and both in great locations. We all enjoyed Havana immensely and the Kuoni rep was pretty helpful in sorting the activities. The beach resort was also great and the holiday ended far too soon. Thanks so much for getting it all sorted. The transfers and organisation was seamless and definitely added to the overall experience. The level of service from Julie from day one to the point of return was fantastic....and I have already recommended her to a friend!
Jim Sibree-Paul – Cuba (January 2013)

I wanted to thank you for your efforts in arranging our day trip to Lapland with my son at late notice - it really was magical and flawless from start to finish!

I set Jules the challenge to find us a family holiday for October half term, somewhere in Asia. A stickler for detail and high standards, I was after luxury, comfort and culture. We had an incredible 10 days in Thailand, a wonderful holiday which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you Jules!

We had a a fabulous time in Thailand! Everything went very smoothly - thanks for all your organisation. The Elephant Hills experience was just AMAZING! A huge thank you to you for putting it all together and making it happen. It was EXACTLY what we were looking for - and it was done in style. It was the unforgettable family experience it was always meant to be.

Thank you for organising our recent trip to USA, all flights, transfers and the hire car arrangements ran smoothly! In New York the 48-hr Hop on, Hop off bus was excellent. The night tour was a bonus and the boat around Statue of Liberty was the best way to do it given the huge queues for the boat that landed at the Statue of Liberty We enjoyed the sights around New York and Washington. The hotel in Washington was ideally located. Thanks for all your help with organising our trip for us - I would definitely ask for your help again!

As a result of her extensive knowledge of Africa Julie fully understood my requirements and delivered a holiday which my son will never forget in Zambia. We could not fault the travel arrangements and were made to feel welcome where ever we went by all representatives and the staff of the camps we stayed at in South Luangwa and through their extensive knowledge of the local wildlife we truly experienced the magic of Africa.

Within days Jules had found the perfect villa, including heated pool, in a beautiful, non-commercialised part of Spain, and had booked everything for us – But better than this no-fuss full service was the expert knowledge Jules was able to bring to our holiday.

Just back from Jordan & Israel - a brilliant holiday. We had a fantastic time and never at any stage was there any doubt about the arrangements. We greatly appreciate all the hard graft you put in to make things happen for us, and the planning with you and expectation of things to come doubles the pleasure of the experience.

Within three hours of me posting a Tweet for holiday help, I received a phone call from Jules. By the next morning my week’s holiday in Crete was researched, sorted and agreed, including a good deal on car hire. We stayed in some great apartments in the heart of the resort and enjoyed a really relaxing week. I can’t recommend Jules highly enough (or Twitter!) and will certainly consider using her services again.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
