I think I was born to travel! My first trip was when I was just 6 weeks old and I upped sticks and moved from Scotland to warmer climates in Australia and then onto Papua New Guinea. On this occasion, my parents were making the travel decisions but I haven’t looked back since!
In my adult life, I have sought out travel at every opportunity. I have specifically chosen jobs in far-flung destinations or jobs where travel has been a big aspect of the role.
Highlights include working on the Whitsundays (kicking off an epic scuba diving habit!) and living onboard a small, luxury cruise liner which took me to all corners of the globe.
On returning to live in London I have worked in luxury European travel for the past 6 years. Europe has always been where my heart is as the variety of experiences you on offer are so vast.
If you are looking for inspiration, ask me about train travel on the Orient Express, Christmas time in Iceland, Luxury Italy, Andalucia & Spain in general, adventures on the Adriatic coast and most recently Island hopping in Greece!
We were really happy with our entire trip and the guides and their pride in their countries. Everything that we booked to visit was perfect and so interesting. No complaints and only compliments.
The trip was excellent. Murray and Heather from Jacada were very responsive to our interests, needs, and preferences. They planned a trip that matched our interests. Both of our guides were outstanding - adapting to our interests at every stop on the way. Basically, they helped us fall in love with Iceland. Thank you.
Murray and Heather worked with us to ensure a fabulous experience in Italy. The guides, drivers and other people sent to help us make connections were responsible, knowledgeable and gave insight to dining, history and culture you don't get from group tours or guide books. The accommodations across the board were first class and unique. Jacada Travel delivers what they promise.
Every detail was handled to perfection. Murray and Heather put together a magical trip we will never forget!
Everything was first class and organized to perfection. The hotels were great, tour guides were knowledgeable and we could not have been happier.
Jacada planned a 9 trip to Greece for our party of 6. They did a wonderful job attending to every detail- the hotels were all exceptional , the guides were knowledgeable, entertaining and engaging. The transportation vehicles were always clean and the drivers provided with fresh cold bottles of water available when needed ( as the temperatures remained in the high 90 range - this was a very nice gesture) The tours and excursions were meticulously planned and executed with much thought going into what are interests were and exceeding all expectations. Overall I would highly recommend Jacada Travel for any destination that they serve. Gerarda R.
An unforgettable experience and five star service. Murray, Heather and Alex were just outstanding in working with us and delivering an exceptional vacation. I cannot say enough about their care and attention to every detail. It truly made our vacation the best we're ever had. We will only ever use Jacada Travel for our family vacations from now on, they are that good!
With the help of Jacada we were able to experience a spectacular stress-free family vacation to Croatia. Our trip designer thoughtfully planned out our itinerary so that we had the perfect balance of adventure and site seeing. We hiked waterfalls, went white water rafting and enjoyed tours of Diocletian’s place, Dubrovnik’s fortress, and Hvar.All of the Jacada drivers and tour guides were top rate—friendly, professional and knowledgeable and our hotel accommodations were phenomenal. This is our second family vacation with Jacada (the first to Chile) and won’t be our last. A+
The trip I took to Iceland in June 2019 with Jacada was amazing. Murray Mitchell at Jacada was so easy to work with during the planning process and everything ran smoothly once we were there. They were even able to reschedule our massages at the Blue Lagoon due to a flight delay.Our tour guide, Agnes, was the best. She was fun, accommodating and had a wealth of knowledge about Iceland. She even suggested making some changes to our itinerary to make our experience better. Can't rave enough about her!I will definitely look to Jacada for other trip planning where I want a personal tour.Loren
Quick response, listened to what we wanted on our trip and planned a great vacation for us.
We had a great trip to France planned through Jacada. Everyone we worked with at Jacada was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and personable. We plan on using Jacada again for any luxury trip we take. We highly recommend their services.
Jacada partnered with a great team in Iceland that provided us incredible guides, phenomenal hotels, and exquisite food. We loved every place we went and were especially appreciative of how much time Murray Mitchell took with customizing our trip and ensuring that we were taken care of. We felt though Iceland is an expensive place to travel we did spend a lot of money that likely wasn't all for the trip, but instead went through the different companies that assisted us with our travel. Even still though it was a phenomenal trip
We recently traveled to London and Croatia and used Jacada to plan our trip. We had a relatively short time period to travel and wanted to take advantage of every day. We gave Jacada our preferences and let them run with it. We could not have been happier with their recommendations. The hotels, tours and restaurants were excellent and the attention to detail was impressive. Our agent Murray really did a great job putting together a fantastic itinerary. He clearly listened to our interests. Everyone we came into contact with was professional and most importantly, they seemed to enjoy what they were doing. The drivers, tour guides and hotel staff were friendly and really wanted us to enjoy our vacation. Jacada helped make our vacation effortless and we will absolutely use them in the future to plan other trips.
