The Maldives; there is nothing quite like it. Remote yet accessible, stunning above and below the water, a warm welcome every time, the food is divine and the snorkelling is out of this world; what’s not to love?!


Travel Highlight:
A peaceful yet fascinating afternoon snorkelling at Diamonds Atharuga; the underwater world just teeming with marine wildlife, was outstanding to experience; vividly colourful fish, basking turtles, baby sharks and bright plants and coral, simply unforgettable and a must for anyone visiting the Maldives.

Travel Highlight:
“Gazing out over the misty mountains of the Andes home to Machu Picchu, and trying to imagine the sheer effort it took to build this ancient Incan Citadel. A special mention must also go to my 4-day trip to New York with my Mum, when she trudged round hotel after hotel with me, whilst I researched my New York travel guide!”

Jen Williams - Senior Travel Consultant

Jen started her travel career working for Thomson Holidays and has worked in travel for over 9 years. Her husband’s work took her young family to Malaysia, where they lived for a year and whilst here, they enjoyed travelling to Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and they spent weekends in Penang or Langkawi. Her thirst for travel stemmed from there. Jen has great cruise knowledge and can help tailor the perfect cruise for you.
