Lovely to meet you

Having worked in the Travel Industry for 9 years and counting, I am incredibly passionate about detail and no trip is too small!

I have lived in London & Perth, both opening destinations for me to explore! My favourite trips to date were Greece and Thailand. 

Every part of the process excites me, from simple flights, group holidays, to your bucket list trips! 

I enjoy getting to know my clients and I understand that no detail is too small and warm prompt service is key to delivering great customer experiences.

My favourite holiday memories

  • Thailand
    Thailand

    Phuket & the Phi Phi Islands was an incredibly fun trip that my husband & I did together. We stayed in Patong and it was full of life day and night! I'm not sure about you, but I am all about the food and it was INSANE!!

    Highly recommend the day trip via speedboat to Phi Phi Island and surrounds, one of the most beautiful places I've been!

  • Greece

    I spent two weeks in Greece with girlfriends. Mykonos was a lively little island, with a great nightlife! Beautiful walkways and picturesque beaches. Santorini was a wow moment for me, after walking up what felt like 1000s of stairs in 30 degree heat then seeing the stunning hillside! 

    Beachfront bars and restaurants in Mykonos were my favourite! You only need to leave the beach to sleep!

  • China
    China Cherry McGovern

    Shanghai and Beijing was a work famil, it was mind blowing! We saw all the highlights from The Bund, to the French Quarters for dinner in Shanghai before catching the bullet train to Beijing. 

    The Great Wall of China was extremely humbling, you could definitely sense the history here! The views were magic! 

    Beijing's Double Horse Restaurant is famous for its peking duck and I can tell you it was lovely!

  • Malaysia

    KL was my first experience into how throughout Asia they live by the night. I was busier out in the evenings than during the day! 

    Penang is Malaysians foodie heaven! Their cultural influences here are vast! We had the most incredible food, from Indian, Malaysian to Turkish and Chinese. 

  • Fiji

    I stayed at The Radisson with my bestie for 7 nights and it was absolute bliss! I highly recommend this property for couples and families it really caters for both. 

    We had the best time watching the sunset at the main restaurant each evening with a Pina colada in hand!

My travel passions

Scandinavia - my top 5 things I would like to do!

2. Hurtigurten from Bergen to Tromso to see the incredible Norwegian landscape and of course the Northern Lights!

4. Swedish Lapland Ice Hotels & Auroras at Christmas Time! See Santa's Village and stay in a Igloo with a skylight to view the stunning night sky!

Egypt & Jordan

Western Australia
After living in Perth for just over 2 years - I have a huge passion for this area and its incredible beauty. Travelling from the Kimberly to Esperance, via the incredible wine region of Margaret River!  

Greece & Turkey
Traveling here on a budget in my mid 20's was mind blowing, I would love to take my family back there now to explore one of my favourite food styles I love the freshness of the herbs / salads and the flavours from the authentic spices. 
I would love to take my family to Cappadocia to take an early morning hot air balloon to see the incredible rock formations in the area and head down to Bodrum and relax on the Peninsula.

What my customers have to say

  • Cherry was able to give multiple options for a holiday to Australia that made our decision-making much easier. She also recommended a slight change to date which allowed direct travel to Hobart without having to connect, reducing our journey time considerably. Her follow up emails were timely, detailed and much appreciated. Many thanks Cherry for the impeccable service! We look forward to working with you again in the future.
