John Faithfull

My love affair with travel began in a vintage Italian train carriage at sunset on a hot and sticky September evening in 1983. Sardined into a two-bench compartment, I’d spent five hours sharing sweaty thighs, broken-Italian pleasantries and furtive glances while rattling towards Turin, stopping at every wisteria-draped village along the way.

John knew the ins and outs of Cuba and was able to answer every question (big and small) that we had. We really feel that we had an off the beaten track experience in this already mysterious country.

John created a highly customised itinerary for us in Grenada that included the most amazing snorkelling we have ever done! Thanks also for picking such idyllic properties.

John unveiled a side of Jamaica that we had not expected - while we knew the beaches would be spectacular, we were blown away by the opportunities to spend time in the mountains. Aside from the holiday itself, we were so impressed with the communication with John throughout.

We knew we wanted to visit Saint Lucia, but we were unprepared for the itinerary that John prepared. He went far beyond just a typical beach stay, arranging snorkelling, guided hiking, and even a visit to a historic plantation house.
