What are Travel Buddies?
TRAVEL-GUIDES WHO ARE WITH YOU FROM HOME TO DESTINATION & BACK.

Travel can now be STRESS FREE and no longer a problem. With a Travel-Buddy by your side they can organise everything as your own Personal Assistant.
Perhaps you would just like a Travel Companion, someone to share a holiday/day experience, to enjoy fine food and intelligent conversation. Or perhaps you are not as active or as confident as you used to be...
A Travel-Buddy Personal Assistant is your Solution.
How Did it All Begin ?
The more I travelled, the more I became
aware of couples, small groups and solo traveler's struggling with anything from trying to order a meal, to locating which platform their train left from.
I assisted one couple in Venice at a bus station who were trying to locate their hotel with just a map in 30 degree heat and were clearly getting very stressed and agitated. With the use of Modern technology and a short walk to the water-bus I was able to send a very grateful couple on their way to Rialto, where their hotel was located.
Holidays should be relaxing, not stressed or a challenge.
I also noticed a lot of Solo Travellers that I felt would just appreciate some good conversation and someone to share a holiday experience with.
So that's how the idea of Travel-Buddies came about.
WE PROMISE YOU A COMPLETE STRESS FREE BREAK.
That is what a Travel-Buddy Personal Assistant offer's YOU.

A Few Ideas & Suggestion
THE FRENCH RIVIERA
The South of France is lovely anytime. Visit the street cafes, the flower markets or maybe a trip to Antibes or the Rothschild Villa Ephrussi. Shopping in Nice makes a lovely morning, with a drive along The Corniche in the afternoon. We will plan it based on where you want to go, what you want to see, and when.
Perhaps a few days in Milan, a day at Lake Garda, then on to Florence. Such contrast in what is one of my favourite destinations.
A visit to Micheal Angelo's 'David," Rome and The Vatican City an amazing out of season break. Perhaps there is somewhere you always wanted to visit in Italy. Travel-Buddies can get you there.
CANADA/U.S.A./THE REST OF THE WORLD
From Florida to The Rockies when YOU want to go. Maybe Vancouver to Calgary. If you like trains and amazing scenery 'The Rocky Mountaineer' is the only way to travel; a great break Spring or Autumn. Perhaps Universal Studios and The Florida Keys or ever thought about The Far East?
THE BRITISH ISLES
Just a Day Trip or maybe a Short Break, but where? The Cotswolds, The West Country, London, Scotland, Edinburgh, Wales, Ireland, Belfast Titanic Dock & The Giant Causeway. Maybe Hampton Court Flower Show, Blenheim Palace or a day at the Races.
Out of season how about the famous Bath or Edinburgh Christmas Market's or London and a Theatre Break.
