Wealth of Experience
Gill started her working life in travel over 30 years ago, firstly with a York based specialist tour operator to Southern & Eastern Africa in the early eighties, then with a tour operator specialising in Australia and New Zealand before working with one of the UK’s top luxury tour operators for nine years.
‘I have been very privileged to have travelled to some of the most beautiful and amazing places in the world, staying in superb hotels and enjoying many experiences such as a balloon ride of Arizona; getting up close to Orca Whales whilst Kayaking in British Columbia, Canada; walking on an island in the Okavango Delta in Botswana following elephants; ‘celeb spotting’ in New York and Beverly Hills and swimming in turquoise blue seas in the Caribbean.’
Network of Contacts
As well as the first hand experience of these destinations, Gill has a network of contacts who she has built up a good working relationship with, using some of the best tour operators in UK (not always the ‘Big’ names, but some of the smaller specialist companies who really have knowledge), as well as contacts with worldwide ground operators and hotels.
‘Being totally independent and having these contacts allows me to work with a range of tour operators, ground operators and accommodation that suits my clients precise needs and ensures that my clients holiday experience is enhanced.’
If you are planning a holiday but you are not sure of where, or even when, then Gill is there to help with a very personal and honest service to suggest some ideas and create your perfect holiday.
