The best advice always comes from those in the know and that’s definitely what you want when it comes to planning a holiday. The traditional two weeks in the sun has changed dramatically in the last ten years. A holiday is no longer time out, it’s time well spent; a chance to experience a new place, explore new interests, possibly gain a skill or exercise a passion. In fact, holidays have never been more important and when you’re planning yours, nothing is more valuable than quality guidance from someone who knows.
