In a very short period of time, Charlotte was able to come up with an excellent itinerary, to keep us informed of reservations on a timely basis and to make changes to meet our requirements. She was always available either on the phone or through email exchanges which was most reassuring and hugely appreciated. A valuable asset!


Kate Hitchen was excellent and managed to book and organise our trip to India perfectly, it was even better than expected. Thank you.
