Excellent customer service from start to finish!
We were in Florida when Hurricane Ian hit. Philip was fantastic at keeping in touch, answering all my emails and keeping us informed about flight options. A much needed voice of calm amid the madness.
Really helpful when my flight was cancelled due to Hurricane Ian. Resolved the issue quickly and well
A great help when problems happened -always there on the end of the phone. 10 out of 10
I am always recommending this company. Will always go the extra mile !
Service and support from Ewan was great throughout. Ewan Warrin and Lee were incredibly supportive when we were impacted by Hurricane Ian and if it had not been for their help in arranging alternative flights we would stil be in Orlando.
I dealt mostly with Jim and he was very professional at his job. I would definitely use again
Neil Frost was brilliant in rearranging our flight.
Felt really looked after by Riley from start to finish. We had an amazing time. Would use your services again
All our flights and reservations worked out perfectly. We even managed to escape hurricane Ian.
Again Ivor came up trumps
Awesome customer service from Austin and his team yet again
Great experience. Easy, and questions quickly answered by phone… that funny old communication tool.
Every email, every phone call was professional, courteous and helpful. Troy was our agent and I appreciate all he did this time and before
As always, excellent service from the first phone call to returning from our trip. Thanks Jerry and we’ll be calling to book with you again soon.
Fabulous staff kept me totally informed about my flight - great experience as first time solo. Thanks everyone
Always a pleasure to deal with a totally professional company - will only use you in future
COVID USA entry requirements were embedded in gov .UK links, but were easily overlooked. I had my vaccination cards with me but these were not accepted and I nearly didn’t get on the plane.
The level of service we received from Declan and his colleagues was superb as always and we really liked the hotel that he recommended for us in New York. We look forward to booking with you again in the future.
Excellent service and excellent communication. We will use again
Would recommend your service to others
Excellent service again from Teddy. This is my 3rd booking to the USA in the last 12 months and looking forward to booking again. Your staff answer the phone within seconds which is amazing when you hear the stories of people being on the phone for hours. Keep up the great service.
Thank you Adam, once again our trip was organised perfectly.
Excellent service, always available on phone and superb price
Superb start to finish
Danny looked after us brilliantly
Thank you so much Samuel - you never let me down and always find me the best holidays and deals
Helpful when arranging my flights and very good follow up to ensure everything was in order regarding visas
Very reassuring to know there was someone I could call if I had any issues with travel or questions. Wayne gave lots of helpful advice and we had a fab trip away! We are now planning our trip for next July to Vancouver with him!
Since it started coming to life as a resort of extreme recreation early last century, Las Vegas has been a place of decadence, excess, and supercharged entertainment.
But it's not all about the dollar-draining casinos, unfathomable heat and oversized frozen cocktails - there's an incredible array of performances, concerts and comedy shows to keep you entertained every single night of the week.
This is all an unbelievably far cry from the town where, just over a century ago, all gambling was banned under strict new laws - even the flipping of a coin among friends to decide who was to pay for a round of drinks.
The name Las Vegas had been given to the area in 1829 by a trading party that was travelling to Los Angeles and stopped for water there - at that time, several parts of the valley contained artesian wells surrounded by extensive green areas. Las Vegas means the meadows in Spanish.
It officially became a city in 1905 when 110 acres of what was to become downtown were auctioned off to ready buyers. By 1931, Nevada state law-makers realised that the city's well-established illegal gambling industry would be more profitable for everyone if it was legalised.
The first gambling licence was issued to the Northern Club, with other venues to follow such as the Las Vegas Club and the Apache Hotel.
The city's first traffic light arrived that year too - and many other lights of the neon type were soon to follow as Las Vegas swiftly rose to be the gaming capital of the world.
Now it's all about shows as much as gambling, and one that's going from strength to strength is The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil, which has just celebrated ten years at The Mirage Hotel & Casino, during which time it has been seen by eight million people. Even Sir Paul McCartney described it as 'the greatest show in Vegas'.
LOVE is just one of seven Cirque spectaculars taking place across the city. The flagship event - O, at the Bellagio - features high dives, walking on water and the most impressive synchronised swimming and diving outside the Olympics.
If watching big-name pop acts is more your scene, head to Caesars Palace. Sir Elton John, Rod Stewart, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey are just some of those currently sharing headline slots.
The merchandise shop is worth popping into too, even if it's just to marvel at the $11 biros bearing the faces of the performers.
COULD IT BE MAGIC
Vegas has a long history of magic powers - and not just the ability to make huge sums of dollars disappear almost instantly. Siegfried and Roy wowed the crowds in Vegas from 1990 to 2003 before Roy was seriously injured on stage by a 380lb white tiger.
Since then, the wand has been passed on to Penn and Teller - they have been performing at the Rio for more than a decade, while David Copperfield is enjoying a residency at the MGM Grand.
Any Elvis fans planning on making a pilgrimage to his spiritual home this year will be in for a treat. The King may be dead, but long live the King - he's being reincarnated as a hologram to perform 15 shows at a venue yet to be announced.
The company behind the technology, Pulse Evolution, previously created a hologram of Michael Jackson for the 2014 Billboard Awards, which drew gasps of astonishment for its accuracy.
Alternatively, Elvis is available in tribute act form - he has been in the building at the Flamingo for the Legends In Concert, appearing alongside impersonators of Michael Jackson, Tina Turner and country star Garth Brooks.
Only in Vegas, right?
