Wonderful Family Holiday in South Africa

Lesley Ann-created a magical last minute two week tour of South Africa over the festive period. Thanks to her amazing local knowledge, from the best places to stay and dine and picking the best guides and drivers, we had the most memorable trip that the whole family loved and will never forget. We would challenge anyone to try and beat her attention to detail to create a personalised trip that meets the exact requirements we asked for. Thank you so much! – Paresh, Lisa, Marco & Milan xxx

Master of a Great Itinerary

Lesley-Ann has arranged a couple of contrasting trips for our family. The first was the most fabulous ski trip staying in the best hotel I think we have ever stayed in. She followed our brief to the letter and as result we ended up having a wonderful and, for the first time, hassle free and relaxing skiing holiday. More recently she put together a ‘road trip’ around Italy for us. We were slightly nervous about doing city breaks with our children but our visits to both Rome and Venice, either side of a lovely four days in Tuscany, were a total success. She masterminded a great itinerary which worked seamlessly combining, trains, planes and automobiles with wonderful accommodation. Lesley-Ann listens to what you want and does the hard work for you, using her vast experience. I would highly recommend her! – Joanna, Grant and family

Breath Taking Experiences and Memories

Our first experience of using la Concordia and what a great experience it was. Our initial instructions to Lesley-Ann were somewhat vague i.e. we wanted to visit Vietnam and Cambodia. Lesley-Ann quickly teased out what was important to us. The result was an action packed experience of top hotels, some great local private trips and a host of memorable and fun experiences. We were the envy of many other holiday makers we met on our travels as we had a “Silver service” breakfast served on a tuk tuk at the temples in Cambodia, after a very early start. An evening Vespa trip around Saigon (we are so glad Lesley-Ann persuaded us to do it). Witnessed local ladies rowing 4 bicycles and two of our friends (who joined us for part of the trip) across a river on a sampan to enable us to complete our self-guided bicycle tour. Had elderly ladies in the markets in the North Vietnamese countryside rushing out to pat Bill's stomach for good luck as he cycled past, as they believed he was a happy Buddha! We would strongly recommend Lesley-Ann and we have just started to plan our next trip with her. – Bill and Carol

Sensational South East Asia Trip

We wanted an amazing holiday to celebrate Kevin’s 50th Birthday, but we wanted an adventure at the same time. We had already thought that our selection of Vietnam as a destination was adventurous……..but then, in came Lesley-Ann!! She widened the holiday to add on cultural Cambodia and contemporary Singapore. My goodness what a sensational time we had! Lesley-Ann’s connections abroad and meticulous planning ensured a seamless holiday experience. Her knowledge of our destinations was vast and her passion for travel was contagious. We went on activities that we would have never considered trying had it not been for her enthusiasm, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We even went on an amazing Vespa tour in Saigon! Lesley-Ann found us huge savings on our business class flights and gave us various choices of hotel to suit our budget. We considered the holiday first class and excellent value for money. If you have a special holiday to plan and you want it to be superb, then we can’t recommend Lesley-Ann highly enough. It was a ‘5 star’ ‘AA’ experience. We can’t wait to use Lesley-Ann again! – Sally and Kevin

More nice words

We just wanted to say a really massive thank you for organising a very special and very successful trip for the four of us - we had an absolute ball!!  The trip was very well balanced which was solely down to us relying on your knowledge and advice on the right amount of time to spend in each place.  We even had several comments on our la Concordia bible that we took everywhere with us and had all we needed for every leg of the journey. Everything was absolutely superb.  Lesley, Simon, Oliver and Isobel

 

Your attention to detail and hotel and restaurant recommendations were invaluable.  The flow of our trip was well balanced between staying in cities, sightseeing and relaxing.  I would certainly recommend your services to others, especially anyone planning a multi-centre holiday; it would have taken me a long time to arrange our trip without your help. - Mark and Family

 

Thank you Lesley-Ann for our holiday it has been so much fun in the camper van, love Tilly and Iggy xxxxxx” - The Godfrey Family

Thank you very much for helping us
enjoy a fantastic holiday to China!
It was a great experience for
all of us - happy times together.
— James, Roisin and Family

We just got back from the most fantastic adventure in Cambodia and cannot thank Lesley-Ann enough. We have always travelled independently, so using a specialist was a first for us and we were amazed by what she did - ideas and planning, in the most un-intrusive way - she just took care of everything. I suspect that this is the start of a long relationship as we will definitely be using her again!” - Gemma and Iain

 

Lesley Ann took our basic ideas for an itinerary and translated them into a supremely well organised sweep around Myanmar and Malaysia with the odd detour into Thailand for particular sites. She has abundant knowledge about accommodation and travel itineraries and took great care in designing our trip. It is the kind of personal service you expect but rarely get.” - Richard and Hilary

We had such an adventure and
my memory of the kids bathing
on the back of elephants close to the
Burmese border will live with me forever.
You certainly know your stuff! Thanks so much.
— Matt and Rachel

Lesley-Ann planned and booked quite different holidays for us - an active touring holiday with the kids in the US and a relaxing break for 2 in Europe. Her ability to listen to your needs and wants and then ensure that these are met surpassed our expectations. The trips she designed and coordinated were both creative and showed extensive research and knowledge of these destinations. We were presented with a beautiful folder for each trip which outlined our schedule in an incredible level of detail. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lesley-Ann - she has been a sheer delight to work with.” - Rachel and Dan

 

Lesley -Ann was a huge help in advising us and formulating our recent holiday in South Africa and Mozambique.  She used her personal recommendations and thorough research to find places for us that were just what we were looking for.  The Travel Journal provided, enclosing all our travel information was well organised, detailed and extremely useful.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Lesley-Ann whole-heartedly.”  - Eric and Emma

You were so terrific in planning
our wedding and honeymoon.
We would be hard pressed to think
of anything that could have been
done better. It was all quite magnificent.
— Darryl and Sarah

We toured around Chile, Argentina and Brazil for six weeks and had the most fantastic time.  I did think about organising it myself, but I am so pleased that I didn’t as it was complex and a bit daunting.  You cut through all of that and allowed us to enjoy the planning process as well as the holiday.  The most important thing to me was when we had an issue with one of the hotels you sorted it out for us, to me that is the ultimate in service, anyone can operate when things are going well, but only the best react in a positive way to issues which are almost inevitable on the trip we undertook.  Once again THANK YOU.”  - Graham and Alison

You made our ‘trip of a lifetime’
to Orlando exactly that.
We enjoyed some really
special moments together
that we will treasure forever.
— Edward, Julia and Family

I cannot thank Lesley-Ann enough for organising our two week adventure in Vietnam and Cambodia.  I usually book these trips myself and I am so glad I asked Lesley-Ann to organise this for me.  Reading the guide books and travel magazines can get confusing, what to see, where to go etc.  Lesley-Ann took control and put the perfect itinerary together, combining adventure (cycling along the Mekong), breath taking sights (Angkor Wat) and days relaxing (Hoi An).  In two weeks we covered 3 countries and 6 cities and didn’t think it would be possible to do so much yet remain so relaxed.  All the stress of a holiday was removed, from the airport pickups, tours, local information, suggestions for restaurants, cafés, bars, shops etc.  Thank you Lesley-Ann for the holiday of a lifetime.  - Kavita

 

Lesley-Ann arranged a fantastic weekend to remember in NYC for our 10th wedding anniversary. Her recommendation for hotel and restaurants was absolutely first rate and made for a truly memorable experience for us both. We will be asking for her help again when making future travel arrangements.” - Rob and Aisling

Every person in our group,
to a man and woman,
was gushing in their compliments
for the work you did on our
South Africa trip.
— Andy

We have used Lesley-Ann for a range of holidays now and the level of service is second to none.  Her attention to detail and quality of accommodation is spot on, she always gets it just right.  She takes time to understand exactly what you are looking for and her recommendations are always well researched.  Her city/resort guides are excellent and always includes some great tips, often based on first-hand experience.” - Kerry and Mike

 

Lesley-Ann, thank you for organising what was a most fantastic company trip, your service has been personal, knowledgeable and professional in every aspect. ” - Guy

Lesley-Ann does a far better job,
in less time,
with greater consideration
than I ever could.
— Simon

Lesley-Ann provided ideas on some amazing boutique hotels for our 10th wedding anniversary trip to Tuscany; places we would never have found ourselves.  We chose 2 and the proof of the pudding was that the hotels that we stayed at were truly outstanding and surpassed even our most optimistic expectations.  Lesley-Ann took care of every detail, booking the flights, car hire and hotels as well as providing suggested day trips for each day we were there.  The whole experience was made so completely simple and stress free for us that it’s difficult to imagine going through the hassle of having to book a holiday without Lesley-Ann’s immaculate service in the future.  We recommend la Concordia without reservation.” - Mike and Trudie

Lesley-Ann takes the time to understand exactly
what you are looking for. Every little detail
is covered so that you can just focus on
having a great time.
Highly recommended.
— Jenny

We have utilised the services of la-Concordia many times now and, without exception, Lesley-Ann has always either suggested terrific location ideas I hadn’t considered and then followed them through with wonderful accommodation and related itineraries or has taken my own suggestions for holidays/trips and expanded on them to secure us superior accommodation etc.  I cannot recommend her services highly enough…when it comes to travel ideas she is the font of all knowledge!” - Keith and Cathy

For those who want a high quality
service and knowledgeable
recommendations rather than
a travel agent brochure lucky dip approach.
