Whenever I receive an enquiry for the Maldives, our top selling destination at Travel Counsellors, I start by saying the same thing every time... 'To this day, it is still the only place in the world that I have been lucky enough to visit that looks incredible in pictures but even more mind blowing in the flesh'. If you haven't had the chance to visit, it's a MUST. If you think you've seen a beach, think again! I use the phrase 'heaven on earth' sparingly but I can assure you that the Maldives, is very close indeed.

As an award winning global tour operator, Travel Counsellors have negotiated rates with almost all islands across the Maldives so please get in touch and I can help send you on your way to paradise.๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒž

Been to Dubai? Know nothing about Abu Dhabi?๐Ÿค” SPEAK TO ME! Abu Dhabi has a HUGE amount to offer and is a fantastic alternative to Dubai - you can even do both in the same trip! If you're looking for family fun, 5* luxury, an abundance of things to do and a more relaxed way of life in comparison to Dubai, Abu Dhabi is a must! Like Dubai, it can be easily combined as a stop over in your itinerary however, you could easily fill a weeks stay in Abu Dhabi. Ferrari World, Yas Waterworld and the stunning Grand Mosque (one of the largest in the world) are just a few things you can enjoy in this stunning city. For ideas on itineraries, hotels and things to do in Abu Dhabi, please get in touch. Your trusted Travel Counsellor & friend, Mark. ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ

Mauritius - the forgotten paradise of the Indian Ocean... With easy access from Manchester airport, Mauritius is a stunning option for anyone looking for a slice of paradise this year. With easy access from Manchester airport, I can help you find that magical getaway to an un spoilt, sun-kissed resort that will live long in the memory. With an added bonus of low deposits, financial protection and unrivalled service, myself and Travel Counsellors are here to help make things personal. Please get in touch at [email protected] to find out why just pressing 'book' on a website, is light years away from the kind of personal service we offer. Don't do it! Keep it personal, support small businesses and book with a person, not a website. Your trusted Travel Counsellor & Friend, Mark. :-)
