Travel is my passion. I love what I do!
This is my Personal Travel Service.
Let me plan and book your next trip, the way you want to do it.
A little about me. I live and work in Melbourne, Australia. Whilst, most of my adult life has been mostly spent here, I did live and work in Seoul, South Korea for a year. My first trip took me to Singapore, Taipei and Seoul. This was a fantastic experience and gave me the travel bug.
I have since worked in the Travel Industry for the past 25 years. This has enabled me to travel extensively across the globe and build up a knowledge and experience that I am able to pass on to my clients.
Some of my favourite Destinations are New York, Paris, The Greek Islands, Italy, Buenos Aires, Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, The Pacific Islands and Bali.
I enjoy nothing more than relaying my travel expertise and providing the very best in personal customer service.

David, you did a fantastic job as usual. The Flights and Accommodation were perfect. I would recommend Norfolk Island to anyone who wanted a quiet time !! However we weren’t too quiet, you definitely need a hire car too get around. I was amazed at how many elderly people travel there considering the terrain. Duty free was great. The tours we went on were amazing. Thank you ??

I was passed on David's details through friends. I called David and introduced myself and asked him to book me a holiday to England for 1 month away with Flights, Car Hire and Travel Insurance. David came up with a really awesome deal with my travel insurance, car hire and a really great deal with Emirates Airlines. I found David to be a really great guy, very interested in helping me out with my booking, very helpful and informative. He asked lots of questions and came up with lots of choices on flights and car hire. David put together for me a really great package and carefully explained everything to me. David was very quick in getting back to me and it was piece of mind for me to put my booking in professional hands like David. I also received today a very personal travel wallet with all my Travel Itinerary, Travel Documents and Travel Tags enclosed. Really great personal customer service. Thank you David and thank you Travel Counsellors. I will book another holiday next year with David.

We are both very disorganised people and in the wake of all our wedding plans left organising our Honeymoon trip to the last minute. We approached David to help us plan our dream holiday with no idea of where wanted to go and a myriad of excuses as to why certain options weren't feasible. It was fair to say we were not the easiest people to deal with but David's patience and care for our situation never waivered. His knowledge of the various foreign countries, cultures and international travel was second to none and through his many years of experience, he settled us with a 2 week trip around Sri Lanka. David put in an enormous amount of effort and transparency when it came to putting together our itinerary and was very flexible with any changes we wished to make, just to ensure we had the perfect time way... and it did not disappoint. Our trip was seamless, diverse, comfortable and everything we could have asked for in a honeymoon. My wife and I can't thank David enough for his professionalism and care throughout the entire process and would highly recommend him to others wishing to book a trip away.

Working a 50+hr week and travelling between NZ and Melbourne every three weeks, leaves very little time for me to research the perfect holiday. Using David’s service has been of huge value, not only did he make sure he understood what type of holiday I was looking for, he presented three options which were detailed and gave me everything I needed. Being a nervous flyer I also tend to only fly with airlines I know, however with this particular trip it did mean flying with an air carrier I had never come across, and David was able to put me at ease by explaining his experience and background with the carrier which gave me the confidence to go ahead with booking. Added to that we were even able to score Premium Economy Seats which sweetened the deal. I would like to thank David for making this a painless process, I am so excited for upcoming trip and will be sure to recommend him to my network wherever I can.

David was great with listening to our initial ideas and plans. He then added many useful and helpful suggestions, about hotels, means of travel (what about a train trip to that city?) and particular locations, most of which had not occurred to us. David was also very knowledgeable about plane connections and travel times. He was extremely prompt when following up on obtaining information and prices. An all-round excellent service which we highly recommend.

Absolutely outstanding service. I will definitely recommend David to my friends. I had left everything until the week before I needed to travel. David put together an outstanding itinerary for me, with great hotels at my specified price range. 3 days before I was due to leave, I decided to upgrade my accommodation. David promptly arranged the cancellation and refund of both the hotels I had booked, and then found me new hotels. I was so impressed. I missed a flight from San Francisco to New York, which meant I was arriving 6 hours later- the following morning actually, instead of the previous night. When I got to New York, I discovered David had already called the hotel to make sure they were still holding the room. I had not even told him I'd missed the flight. Such initiative is rare, and his customer service is impeccable. Thank you David for making my holiday so easy and enjoyable, when I had given you little notice, changed plans and missed a flight. Outstanding service, and Travel Counsellors should be proud to have a Travel Counsellor such as David.

A belated note to say thank you for all the work you put into planning our trip; we've had the most fabulous time thus far. When we arrived at the Grosvenor in London last Wednesday morning at a bit after 9am, jet lagged out of our brains and hoping against hope that our room would be available, we were met by the most charming concierge. She offered us a suite for an extra £40 a night, which included access to the Executive Lounge; we went there for drinks and canapés both nights instead of going out to dinner.The Grosvenor itself is gorgeous - thank you for suggesting it, the location and atmosphere were both fabulous, and we loved it. I arrived at the Citadines Ste Germaine des Pres in Paris early this evening, and was told by the concierge that I had a studio with two single beds; I said very politely that I'd prefer a double bed and asked if that could be arranged, and was told it wasn't possible, but that she'd see what she could do. She seemed pretty disinterested, but a minute later told me she could offer me an upgrade to a superior suite, as opposed to a standard; I thought I'd pay more, but was told it would be free of charge. I can only assume Travel Counsellors' power booking held some sway, as with the Grosvenor; more strength to your arm! Thanks again David for your fabulous work.
