Excellent personal service at great value.
Makes me feel secure that should anything happen unexpectedly there is someone to help me.
Flights with Virgin were fine. Lenox Hotel in Boston very comfortable and friendly - even if the weather wasn't.
Overall a really great 1st experience.
A big thank you to Billy and Damian.
The personal touch goes a long way. I liked that the travel manager who I first spoke to kept me informed. No hard sell, just the service and product we needed.
We had a fantastic time and everything went smoothly - thanks to Edward for putting it all together for us .
Was extremely impressed that Darren found a better flight for us even after our original bill had been paid. Great service.
Everything was fabulous. Thank you to Teddy who was both efficient and helpful. Holiday was perfect.
Thank you for helping me check in when it all seemed to be going wrong.
Professional, friendly help given always. Proactive and not reactive. Efficient and geared to my needs. I can rely on you. Thank you.
Excellent as always!
Vinnie was fabulous
Ralph dealt brilliantly with the issue of a cancelled flight.
Very helpful service - will use for next flight!
All ran smoothly as usual.
Very helpful and knowledgeable staff.
Flight back delayed but not your fault.
Always have good service, especially Travis.
Flights with BA were good. Hotel was amazing for the views. Your help and support was appreciated
Service excellent as always. Amy always at the end of the phone to help.
Bradley delivers amazing experiences every time and I wouldn’t use any other travel agent!!
Everything went exactly to plan
Sam was brilliant. Very professional and quick to respond to any query
I greatly appreciated the personal attention to ensure I was prepared for the trip. I valued your support when British Airways had to arrange a different airline to bring me back.
Great experience and excellent customer service from Mike.
Delta flight was far superior to Virgin - leg room on Virgin was not good and seats were uncomfortable.
Hotel in New York (Edison) not up to standard
I have recommended you to so many people over the last few years and they have all said how very helpful you were. You are all so pleasant, polite and more than helpful - a real personal touch which is so rare in this day and age
Cocktails are a big deal in New York, where scores of the world's best bartenders aim to recreate a classic Sex In The City or Mad Men vibe.
But which bar is best?
Old school cocktails
Walk through the original 'hidden' entrance to The Back Room on the Lower East Side and you're in one of two bars that stayed open throughout America's troubled prohibition era. Here cocktails are served in disguise in china tea cups while beer bottles are covered in paper bags, as they were in the 1920s. backroomnyc.com
If you want polished wood, a clubby, back-in-time vibe, a twist on the classic Manhattan recipe and some award-winning bartenders, try Employees Only. employeesonlynyc.com
Or head to the old home of cocktail king Paddy Ford at steak place Wollensky's Grill or nearby (and more pricey) Smith & Wollenskys. At the latter, you drink in a dining room that's been used as a set for films including American Psycho and The Devil Wears Prada. smithandwollenskynyc.com
Cocktails with a view
One of the new kids on the cocktail block is Manhatta, where lifts take up you up 60 floors for seasonal food, skyline views and a riff on the classic Manhattan called, not surprisingly, the Manhatta. manhattarestaurant.com
Or you can get in a New York frame of mind with city views, sunset jazz and a dessert menu at the bar at the Top of the Standard. standardhotels.com
While it sounds like a tourist trap, even locals admit you can't beat the views from the outdoor terrace of Bar 54 at the Hyatt on Times Square. hyatt.com
Cocktails for friends and family
A lot of New York bars cater for couples, where you choose between a spot at the bar or a table for two. If you're in a group, it's advisable to call first – often that's the only way six or more people will be allowed in. Or try bigger table places such as The Tippler below Chelsea market. Cocktails here include the Call An Uber. thetippler.com
Alternatively, head out to the converted warehouse that's now Porchlight where the owners are on a quest to find 'the next great American cocktail'. porchlightbar.com
Cocktails with experts
Try your hand at cocktail-making as you learn the history of the Manhattan, the Cosmopolitan and other New York favourites at a two-hour Iconic NYC Cocktails class at the cool Liquor Lab in Soho. liquorlaboratory.com
Cocktails with extras
If you think nothing says 'exotic cocktail bar' quite like a full-size crystal palm tree, head to the Gitano Jungle Room for New York mixes with Mexican twists. If you wait until summer, you can drink in the roof garden as well. grupogitano.com
Can't decide between whisky or a cool cocktail? Try local favourite Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog. Get a whiskey in the Irish-flavoured Tap Room bar or head up to The Parlour for serious mixology. deadrabbitnyc.com
Or, in true 'only in New York' spirit, join a 'cocktails with yoga' night on Mondays at CocoMat Soho with Deep Eddy Vodka. It's free, though donations are expected. Book a slot at eventbrite.com.
