Words from Our Customers

  • Both Vince and I loved every minute of our holiday. It was so much easier travelling in a group and having an expert on hand. Plus you were very informative and experienced which helped us make the best use of our time. I would highly recommend Avalon Cruise ships to anyone, the rooms were great, the food was varied and excellent and the staff were so helpful. There were lots of advantages travelling as a group and the best thing is that you still have the opportunity to just do your own thing if you want. Being part of a group doesn’t cramp your style or limit your personal space.

  • We travelled for three weeks in Europe with Diane and her husband Peter in June and each day of our holiday we felt our experience and comfort was important to Diane. She has an excellent knowledge of destinations and was able to maximise our time to enjoy every moment in each place visited. We were constantly surprised by thoughtful gestures and unexpected gifts to make our holiday with Diane and Peter unforgettable.

  • I have travelled with Diane – she treated the group like royalty nothing was a problem even taking us out dinner and also giving us mementos to remember the trip. I would not travel with anyone else.

  • Di and Pete are the best ‘team leaders’ you could wish for, everything was well organised and they went above and beyond to make sure we were well looked after. When I fell ill, both went out of their way to get me medical help. Had a most wonderful trip. Thank you Di and Pete.

  • My experience with using Diane has been outstanding. I feel very confident that Diane pays great attention to detail when organising all aspects of our travel arrangements. She is also an amazing tour leader, making sure that all group members have all their individual needs met. Diane made sure that the tour group mixed well and her organisation of the whole tour was fantastic. I have no hesitation in recommending her to friends and family and am currently in consultation with her about our next trip

  • We recently travelled for 5 weeks with Diane to Dubai and Europe (Avalon Cruises).
    Diane was an absolute delight the whole time, we were looked after extremely well and her concern for each one us was amazing. She had her lovely husband, Peter, with her and he also took great care in making sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. Every now and then they would give us all small gifts/mementos of a particular town or city we were in and these were much appreciated. Diane has a wealth of knowledge of the places we went to and ensured we saw the highlights. Although we were travelling in a group she made sure we weren’t limited to being together all the time but allowed time/space for ourselves.
    This was Steve’s first trip abroad and we could not have chosen a better person to travel with than Diane …. And her husband, Peter!
    We would definitely use Diane again for any future travel.
