It makes for a fun, inclusive group where everyone feels welcome.

They are experienced and passionate about what they do, recruiting the very best guides and holiday planners, who work meticulously to perfect every detail, constantly checking the quality of everything they offer from hotels, airports and cruise ports to excursion destinations. Travel Department work closely with their friendly, local guides who impart their insight and knowledge of each destination in the programme. The guides are passionate about sharing that knowledge and work hard to enhance each holiday, from pointing out the best tapas bars and shops, to restaurants known only to the locals.
