What my Clients are saying

I’ve been assisting clients with seamless holidays and bucket list travel for decades and here’s what they’re saying: “Rose arranged our perfect 6 week honeymoon in Europe over the Christmas/ New Years period and we can definitely say it was fabulous! She ensured every detail was accounted for and selected the perfect hotels and tours for us we felt like VIPs the whole trip. From Paris, France to Champagne, Lyon, Nice, Monte Carlo then into Milan, Italy, Florence, Taormina, Rome, and finally Dubai which was the perfect finish. This was not our first long holiday planned by Rose and it certainly won’t be the last. Thank you for making our honeymoon luxurious and unforgettable!”  A. Bolger-Maksoud – Mt Tamborine

Destinations I'm Passionate About

When it comes to my own travel habits, I am a bit of a gypsy and a nomad – I prefer to visit a new country or city, rather than go back to the same place twice.  But if I do, I will stay at a different hotel or resort, and try different sightseeing tours, to learn and experience something new.

When I’m travelling, I’m constantly on the move, experiencing new countries, cities, places, cultures, people and sights.  Having personally travelled to over 50 countries to date, I enjoy researching and exploring different places as a tourist myself, trying out different types of holidays, accommodation and modes of transport, so I can then share those experiences, and my first-hand product knowledge, with you!

To date, I’ve covered much of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, the Americas and the South Pacific, but my bucket list isn’t getting any smaller!  Each year, my goal is to visit at least one new country.  My favourite travel quote by St Augustine says it all – “the world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page”.

There have been many personal highlights along the way – such as visiting Machu Picchu and its ‘aura’, for that once-in-a-lifetime exhilarating experience and amazing views; searching for the Big 5 on African game drives; seeing the amazing Big Island in Hawaii after the Volcano erupted from a bird’s eye view in a helicopter, and feeling the adrenaline rush and exhilaration, when skiing the Gran Sasso, Abruzzo, Italy.

Having said that, I have a passion for cruising holidays too. I love the fact that I can unpack just the once for my entire holiday, wake up every other day in a different port, without having to catch another flight or a transfer, and not have to lift a finger – everything is done and provided for.  I’m waited on, hand and foot – bliss!  Cruises are great value-for-money too, including all of your accommodation, transportation, meals, onboard activities and entertainment.  The more luxurious the better1

As they say, “if you cruise once, you’ll cruise again and again”.  Like me, you’ll get hooked too.!
