Kelly was wonderful. I had an amazing time with her and the group. ”  

Tanya Howard • Submitted 30 May 2017

Becky was brilliantly organised. All travel - chicken buses, private buses, ferries, boats, flights - everything went without a hitch. Good briefings about locations. Reasonable hotels (except Cancun city). She had a large and very disparate group which she managed with poise and charm. A lovely cheery girl.”
