This is the 5th time we have used you and we will definigtely be coming back! So comforting to have Howard resolve our EasyJet flight problems and keep us fully up to date!
Special thanks to Frank and Lincoln, excellent help from both
Sorted out change of return flight straight away. Thanks
Travis is exceptional, what else can I say?
Great communication especially in a time of uncertainty. Flights booked then changed very easily.
Vincent was amazing, went above and beyond!
Nick was, as ever, an absolute star! Without his assistance I would probably still be stuck in Spain. My very great thanks to him and his wonderful team. I have recommended him to many friends who all praise him to the skies!
Very helpful with flight and transfer changes
Hotel was comfortable. A bit remote but we knew that. Food not good. And horrors of horrors they closed the bar at 11 pm. Flights on time. Good service and ideal seats.
Kylie has been great and especially helpful with changing out return flight
Thank you so much our holiday which ran like clockwork.
Even on the Saturday as Tenerife was being locked down, I emailed a question and I got an answer back. Looking forward to my holiday you have planned for me in September.
Very good experience. Just in time to avoid any Covid 19 problems.
We had a wonderful time, great location. Great staff who could not do too much for you. Would recommend
Keep on doing what you’re doing.
You were amazing and everything I asked for you did. Will definitely be using you again
Raphael chose a hotel that matched all my requirements and got me good flight times as well as transfer services - well done you
Manny, as usual, was brilliant. We had a lot of issues as we were at H10 hotel in Tenerife and Manny helped us sort out change of return flights
All staff extremely helpful and had no problem in changing my flight.
Very helpful as ever
It is bad that Vueling cancelled our flight out with three hours notice for a reason they had known for 24 hours. But that was not your fault.
All the arrangements were perfect. I had to change return flights on two occasions and both were done without any fuss or difficulty. Excellent service as always.
Trip was very smooth. All went fantastically well.
Michael was very helpful as usual. He always manages to get me just what I need
Thank you so much. I told my friends on Facebook how good you were.
We are always pleased with the personal service
My Montenegro guide was animated. 'You should have been here when this was part of Yugoslavia. It was a fine country and tourists loved it,' he said.
There's a word for those who share his view... 'Yugonostalgics', and they remember Josip Tito as a great leader, who ruled the country with a benevolent air and a successful PR campaign.
'I, too, remember Yugoslavia,' I told him, without elaborating.
My memories of pre-1980 Yugoslavia run more along the lines of cheap and nasty, concrete-clad, mass-market hotels aimed at Eastern Bloc tourists, unimaginative food and undrinkable wine.
There was bog-standard nightlife and exotic luxuries such as fiery slivovitz plum brandy, which gave you the mother of all hangovers; and Yugo cars for taxis, which made East Germany's Trabants seem like Ferraris.
It's very different now, as each of the former Yugoslav states strives to come up with new and inventive ways to attract tourists. Montenegro is right up there, with a curious mix of flashy super-yacht marinas and glitzy hotels, combined with good value seaside resorts.
The marina complex of Portonovi, on a 60-acre site on Boka Bay between Dubrovnik, in Croatia, and the Montenegrin coastal town of Tivat, might just be the glitziest of them all when it opens next year. Look out for luxurious apartments, available for sale and rent, as well as a yacht club, spa and a new One&Only resort hotel, the first in Europe.
At the other end of the scale, and not in a bad way, is Ribarsko Selo, a rustic fish restaurant with just a handful of guest rooms, tucked away on the Lustica Peninsula between Miriste and Zanjice beach, where a bottle of Savina white wine costs 15 Euros.
Those in the know book the restaurant's sole harbourside apartment, with its own small pool, a favourite with visiting oligarchs in need of privacy. At just €150 a night for two, it's a bargain.
But there is also much in between these extremes in Montenegro. Its 620,000 people are fiercely proud of the independence they gained following the break-up of Yugoslavia, a process which began in 1991. The following year Serbia and Montenegro became an entity, under the name the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
In 2003, it officially renamed itself Serbia and Montenegro and in 2006, after a referendum, Montenegro declared independence. It was officially named the Republic of Montenegro in 2007.
Its credentials as a forward-looking highly progressive country have been underlined since then by such achievements as being classified by the World Bank as an upper middle-income country, becoming a member of the UN, NATO, the World Trade Organization and the Council of Europe. Not to mention seeing many of its resorts gaining a definite air of high-end sophistication.
The town of Budva, for example, once with a whiff of mass market Spanish Costas about it, is now filled with atmospheric bars and restaurants in the shadow of the ramparts, and there's a crescent-shaped beach, too.
Even more spectacular is Kotor, with its high city walls, tiny alleys, churches and Italianate mansions, all a reminder of Montenegro's Venetian heritage. Visit in the early evening, after the cruise ships have rounded up their passengers, order something at an outside cafe, and bask in its beauty.
For real luxury, try the island of Sveti Stefan, once home to fishermen, whose atmospheric houses now serve as guest rooms for the Aman Sveti Stefan hotel, reached by a pedestrian causeway.
Following local advice, I checked out the resort of Herceg Novi, just along the coast, where the modern beach-side Palmon Bay Hotel and Spa provides a good base from which to explore the coast and the black mountains. Service is slickly efficient - not always the case in this part of the world - and rooms are excellent, if a touch clinical.
Heaven knows where Montenegro is heading. It might not know itself. For the rest of us, it's well worth visiting a place that's in such dramatic transition.
