Tracey Edgecombe

Lovely to meet you

I liken planning a holiday to baking a cake. It takes several well measured and thought out ingredients for a great result.

I have been lucky to have travelled extensively myself and being a travel consultant for more than 20 years, I use these 'ingredients' - experience and expertise - to draw on to help create amazing holidays and lifelong memories.

It is such a pleasure to help my clients get the best out of their holidays and manage an incredible team of travel professionals.


My favourite holiday memories

  • USA
    USA Tracey Edgecombe

    After doing Disneyland and Universal Studios in LA plus a night watching ice hockey we hit the road in our hire car. Going through the National Parks and seeing the scenery of Joshua Tree National Park, Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Zion National Park, Death Valley, Mammoth Mountains and Yosemite was amazing and with a stop at the glitzy Las Vegas we got to San Francisco. 

  • Europe
    European River Cruise Tracey Edgecombe

    Cruising from Budapest to Amsterdam with Avalon was a surprising absolute dream of a holiday. I loved the small towns we visited, learning about Saffron farming, drinking a traditional sized stein, exploring Vienna- highlights around every corner. There was plenty of free time to do as you pleased or be part of the group options. Truly a trip to treasure. 

  • Sri Lanka
    Sri Lanka Tracey Edgecombe

    Sri Lanka seemed to tick all the boxes when we were looking for a family experience - culture, animals and beaches. It did not disappoint! Not only did it tick all the boxes it totally exceeded our expectations. Friendly people, fantastic food, varied scenery, amazing animals, I could go on for hours. We toured with a private tour guide so just the 3 of us plus the guide and it was incredible way to explore. Very personalized and we could vary the plan as it suited us. A wonderful destination for any age - highly recommend.  

  • Vietnam

    2 weeks travelling with 5 other families on an Intrepid family trip was great way to see the country and learn about the destination. It always amazes me how much value a guide adds to a holiday. We made lifelong friends with the other families and Vietnam is fabulous to explore. My favourite was Hoi An. The colourful lanterns and peace of the traffic free old town makes it something special but every stop had something most memorable about it and a good introduction to Asia for children and a great destinations for all. 

  • Fiji
    Fiji Tracey Edgecombe

    Fiji looked after us for our 25th wedding anniversary and it sure delivered. Cruising around the Yasawas on the Blue Lagoon ship was incredible. Talk about a stunning part of the world and cruising adds the bonus of not getting bored being 'stuck' in one place. Incredible snorkeling, stunning beaches and islands, super friendly crew, beautiful food and the bar staff are a dab hand at cocktails. A great couples option. 

  • Touring

    I believe a tour of some size or shape can really enhance your travel experiences. The knowledge you gain from the leader is invaluable whether it be half a day tour or 45 nights. Having experienced many and the different options available I can guide you to what would boost your holiday fun.

What my customers have to say

  • A big thank you to Tracey Edgecombe for the time you spend in making sure we have the best use of our holiday breaks and finding new exciting destinations.
  • Alf and I would like to congratulate Tracey for her excellent service. Always a smile. Goes the extra mile to help our travels go as easy as possible. Her advice on what to do or not do is always spot on. Helps as much as she can to keep cost as reasonable as possible. We look forward to booking with her again and again.
  • Thank you so much for all your help in making my dreams come true!!
  • Thanks again for your expertise and support. Couldn't have done it without you.
  • We have booked with Tracey before and we would highly recommend her to all our friends and fellow travelers. Tracey recommended where to book our stays in Hong Kong before and Japan after our cruise. It really helped with her knowledge of the area. For our cruise, it ticked all our boxes and we cannot wait for March.
  • We had a tight deadline and Tracey had put a great plan in place. At the last minute we had to completely change direction. She executed this expertly, ticking every box we had asked for in her usual ’can-do’ manner, and finished with an hour to spare. Couldn’t be happier! We have a proven track record with Tracey. In 2019, she helped us to plan a complicated 11 week trip and was on hand when we had to navigate the last two weeks having had our credit cards stolen. Her professional, creative and timely service came to the fore again in this time of need where we had to change plans at short notice.

My travel stories

Postcard from Bali

When we visited Bali with friends and I was really impressed. There is plenty of options of things to do to keep you busy or just sit and relax at the beach or by the pool.

Cruising on Ocean Insigna

Cruising on Oceania Insigna from Boston to Montreal was so lovely.

Postcard from the Gold Coast

Heading to the Gold Coast for the first time in 14 years for conference was enlightening.
