The trusted relationships we have built over the years with our suppliers are integral to the success of our business.

We are in regular contact with our preferred hotels and resorts, our chosen tour operators and ground operators, the concierges of small boutique properties and the consultant from the private jet operator. These contacts enable us to provide you with more than just a confirmed holiday booking or travel arrangement, they provide the individual touch –¬† from the personalised welcome from the manager, to the room upgrade on a special occasion and the clearing of a waitlist. We don’t doubt the ability of anyone to book their own travel arrangements. Where we can make the greatest difference to a holiday is by picking up the phone to our contact at a specific hotel and telling them about you and your likes and dislikes.

This Belmonde membership allows us to offer our clients priority wait lists, upgrades (subject to availability) and special offers at such fabulous hotels as Villa San Michele, Florence; La Residencia, Mallorca and Hotel da Cataratas, Brazil.

Above all, G&T provides you with a flexible approach to booking travel. We are here for those of you who choose not to select a pre-packaged holiday from a website or brochure, but prefer to receive advice and a planning service from experienced and knowledgeable professionals.

“Our first G&T experience was a fantastic Caribbean honeymoon. 5 continents, 12 years and 2 children later we remain just as trusting of G&T. Their recommendations are tailored to our likes and dislikes. When an unforeseeable political event forced changes to our itinerary, they were on hand to efficiently, sympathetically and reassuringly make the necessary alternate arrangements.”

Paddy and JoJo Morrissey

“It is my considerable good fortune to have come across the services of G&T. The firm appears tireless at all stages of the travel process: tailoring requests to an accumulated store of knowledge about the client and his particular foibles; searching out, whether requested or not, optimal connections and best offers; a positively Prussian efficiency in the execution of arrangements with, to boot, an alertness to offering further improvements long after the booking has been made and the fee taken. In an age of internet-based, undiscriminating leveling down, G&T more than earns its fees by providing that ever rarer quality: impeccable service.”

Timothy Plaut

“As a family we have used Julia and her team for the past 6-7 years. The G&T team have been truly outstanding in every aspect of their service. Wherever the destination, all our holidays have been a huge success. Their attention to detail is second to none and the end results, without exception, have been wonderful family holidays”

Nick Cook

“My wife and I have been using G&T for the last 7 years and have always had the most wonderful service from them. The team are ready to help regardless of how obscure the demand or indeed how uncertain you are on where you actually want to go and putting it simply, nothing is too much trouble. As a consequence of this and their utter attention to detail, we have had the best holidays imaginable be it from a weekend away to our honeymoon. We have also referred many friends to G&T and they have all had the same wonderful experience. We are and always will be loyal G&T fans!”
