      Mrs Jones / June 2022

      Our first holiday in 2 and a half years

      Initially spoke with Naomi, was given a pricing, didn’t feel that I wanted to book there and then, wanted some time to think it over. Had a few queries rang her back, all questions answered, still felt I needed some time, when I was ready rung her back and sainted to speak to her and booked without any issues. Naomi was clear in her explanations at every stage of our conversations.
