"Sue and Graeme can confidently recommend anyone to contact Ron Montgomery at Spirit of Travel, and discuss your travel aspirations. Out of these chats will come a plan that includes everything you wished.

"We began with Ron 5 years ago when we randomly approached him as a travel agent, and gave him a wish list for a potential 3 week trip to Borneo, a bucket list destination. There were no 'off the shelf' touristy packages that included everything, so Ron used his contacts and considerable people skills to put together exactly what we wanted.

"I would say the trip of a lifetime, but since then we have had two more big adventure trips to the south of France and Catalonian Spain (via Geneva), eventually after 7 weeks finishing in Northern Ireland and Dublin ... AND .. last year ... Ecuador (Andes, Quito), Amazonian basin, Galapagos Islands. Each trip is tailored to our particular interests. We enjoy his excitement for us and his patience if we change our minds (and plans). We look no further than Ron and his Spirit of Travel business when we travel now."
