Anyone know a good, knowledgeable travel agent/advisor?

We need help finding our holiday and are fed up with Googling good reviews v. bad reviews.

Many thanks.

Hi Musicman
I highly recommend Kefalonia. Greece it?s only 3 hours away . Is rated as the 4th most beautiful island in the world . Has stunning beaches & mountains & the people are very friendly
I run retreats out there , but the whole island is like a retreat, peaceful, surrounded by nature & beautiful flora
Fiscardo at the top of the island is the posh bit with expensive hotels & villas & down to the south are sandy beaches, beautiful village with local restaurants & tavernas , but if you want seclusion then the peninsular of Lixouri is where to go . The best beaches with stunning sunsets , red sand beaches & a lovely sense of community in the main town
If you want a retreat for calmness, peace of mind then read my post for The Big Calm
Return flights are around ?120 by Easy jet from Gatwick . Whatever you choose . Have a lovely holiday & re charge your batteries

Did you see this article in The Observer a couple of weeks ago? https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2022 ... zzo-veneto

Might have a few ideas to explore further!

Thanks.

Looks interesting but we have already decided WHERE we want to go in Italy. It's just that we want help to organise it!

My parents recommended the lady they use called Linda Young. They highly rate her because she still manages your booking while you?re on the trip so when they had a problem with the hotel overcharging them, she was straight on to it. She?s based in Birmingham but we?ve just used her for a holiday in Greece and she?s been brilliant.

By the looks of things in this post
It looks like you know where you are going
But just waiting for someone to mention location of your choice right ?
(Garden man
And ilona tried to say a word but you....
You say you know where you're going ...
Why ask ??)
Let us know the dates and your post code
And someone will rearrange your house silly
Very silly bum
Open message to the world saying you're going away now days isn't clever
Isn't it ??
