Eric, my travel manager, was absolutely fantastic. He kept me informed of the travel arrangements at all stages of the booking process. The holiday was the best I've been on due to his meticulous planning and organisation - and most importantly the price was amazing. I am already in contact with him again about booking another holiday!
