Shona Thorne

Director

Scrambling up sand dunes in Cornwall, searching for the best waves and splashing about in the sea as I grew up are among my earliest travel memories.

Bitten by the travel bug when I was 16, I have been very fortunate to have travelled widely since then.

I fell into travel by chance, after finishing my degree I took up a temporary role with a newly formed travel company 25 years ago and have never looked back.

Holidays are so important to everyone – it’s when we all get to have a bit of time out, to relax and recharge after working so hard at all other times.

I’m so proud of my team who can provide excellent knowledge and the very best service to anyone looking for that really lovely holiday occasion, all booked with people they can trust to advise, recommend and deliver the experience for them.

Favourite Places

I have travelled to so many beautiful places making it really hard to choose my favourite destinations.

The beauty and people of Singapore have to make this my top city out of them all. Its stunning skyline, green spaces and exciting activities are simply unforgettable.

Greece and Italy also have great places to visit from cities steeped in history to beautiful beach resorts, all with amazing food and wine. All-round incredible experiences… and easy to reach.

However, for the ultimate sense of relaxation that comes from feeling so far away from everyday pressures, fantastic hospitality and lovely activities for the children and adults, my favourite has to be Jamaica with its pristine beaches and outstanding natural beauty.
