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

Canadian family adventure

Lesley-Ann has been organising our family’s summer holidays for the last few years. These usually involve some form of road trip and there’s been an eclectic mix from Yellowstone to Orlando and then this year, western Canada. Lesley-Ann provides a very efficient and personalised service, booking the full trip from start to finish including the wide variety of additional activities we do. This year’s Canada holiday was a varied trip of planes, boats and automobiles. An amazing journey of spectacular scenery and wildlife sightings (whales, bears, seals) in a variety of locations including the magnificent beaches and surf town of Tofino on Vancouver Island to the breath-taking mountains, rivers, lakes and waterfalls of the Rockies, concluding with the bobsleigh run at the Olympic Park in Calgary (The Cool Runnings track). Lesley-Ann has an extensive knowledge of most locations including the best hotels in these areas backed up by detailed research where necessary. She always has excellent suggestions for other activities you could do or places to visit along the way, but will always leave the final decision with you. I’m already looking forward to next year’s road trip wherever that may be and my discussions with Lesley-Ann about what we should do! – Ed and family

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

First family holiday

I’ve already recommended Lesley-Ann without hesitation to friends, as I really appreciate the value that la Concordia brings to the travel experience.

First family holiday

I’ve always had a general distrust of the high street travel industry which meant I spent absolutely ages doing my own research, planning and booking travel to be sure our holidays were a success and what we wanted. I was so pleased to have been introduced to Lesley-Ann and la Concordia, as I finally had the trust and confidence to let somebody else suggest where I should go and take the hassle and burden out of making all my travel arrangements. The first trip Lesley-Ann arranged for us was a family holiday with our new baby daughter, so it was important it was right. Not only was the location of Puglia a great choice and the villa recommended really impressive. Lesley-Ann overcame issues at the planning stage that others perhaps couldn’t, which meant the overall trip was just great. I’ve already recommended Lesley-Ann without hesitation to friends who have shared the same frustrations as me, as I really appreciate the value that la Concordia brings to the travel experience. – Mark and family

Adventures in Cambodia

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

Multi-centre USA holiday

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

The best personal service

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

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

Sampling South America

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

Superb family trip

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
