  • Carol organized everything, the Globus tour went like clockwork, the 2 days in Dubai with tours each day were very well organised.

  • Dealt with Carol but she was very helpful despite me changing plans multiple times. No change was an issue and always communicated things well, replying to my emails at very late hours to get things over the line.

  • We are just back from the cruise and all three of us had the best time!! Thank you for all your work in booking it for us and making sure everything was done! Make sure if you ever get the chance to go on a Disney cruise that you go, it’s an experience for adults and children!! I asked Alfie what his favourite part was and he just replied everything but he did really enjoy the royal knight transformation and meeting Donald Duck!! We will definitely get in touch with Carol for our next holiday, we have big plans to go to Disneyland in a few years time!!

  • Carol was awesome in booking our flights to the USA, both internationally and domestic. She listened to what was important to us and made some great suggestions. Carol Stratford went the extra mile in securing the flights for our USA trip - she worked really long hours to ensure that we got this and I really appreciate her efforts.
