Thank you for organising a perfect honeymoon and holiday in Israel for my husband and I - we are still talking about it enthusiastically a month later and have recommended both Israel and Holiday Designers to our friends. The historic tour during the first week was just a treasure trove both with what we learnt and the beautiful places we saw. The hotels were lovely and the food in Israel is just fabulous. The second week at the Dead Sea resort was the perfect way to wind down and we will be returning. We have nothing to fault from travel arrangements to hotels to our fantastic tour guide!"

I am very happy to say how pleased we were with our dealings with Holiday Designers. Not only did we get an excellent price, always good when going on holiday, but we had such personal service. My request for a first-floor room presented no problem. The agent , Mustafa from Excel, met us at Hurghada airport and whisked us through buying a visa and passport control in a matter of moments. He gave us local information and an extensive list of extra trips, we did not need to take them up as we wanted a "do nothing" holiday but there was no pressure. We were collected in plenty of time for the return journey our tickets and times being confirmed by him and he escorted us through check-in until he could go no further! The hotel was delightful in such attractive surroundings, gardens , pools, lagoons and beaches with such a choice it was never crowded. 

I shall not hesitate in making you my first port of call when next we go on holiday.

Dear Holiday Designers team,

I have booked two holidays with you now (both to Dahab in Egypt) and I have been extremely happy with the service you have provided. I usually dread the booking troubles and figuring everything out but with Carolyns professional and friendly help it was as easy as being on the vacation itself. I can’t wait to book my next holiday with you!

I have recommended your business to several family members and friends and hopefully that will help you to continue growing and providing more excellent service to more happy customers.

A heartfelt THANK YOU.

A brilliant service from start to finish.

The transfer rep at Hurghada was at the front of the queue on arrival and he hurried us through all the entry formalities and onto the minibus and accompanied us to the hotel right to the reception desk. There we were fully expected and welcomed. They had registered a birthday connection and immediately upgraded us. The return journey was just as good and fully accompanied.

Many thanks

As the organiser of a mixed golf party of 8 people, we decided to forsake Turkey after 5 years, to a new destination providing a warmer climate in February.

The assistance I recieved in organising the trip, in addition the Hotel appointments, staff and facilities were first class, every request was met with happy smiling helpful staff.

The golf was excellent and the warm breeze made the climate perfect for golf (with warm sun on your back). 

Since our return I have been asked to enquire about next years trip with you, the help and support I received from Carolyn regarding options for consideration could not have been better.

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say Thank You for arranging our holiday to the Four Seasons.
We had great weather and Sebastien and his team really went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. They even decorated and arranged a villa on Saturday evening for Pamela and I to celebrate Chinese new year with a dinner especially for the 2 of us.
Nothing was too much trouble for them and they really treated us and our boys like VIP’s
The young family escape package was perfect. It gave the boys everything they needed and wanted and with the babysitting we got to go to the spa almost everyday.
Let me know if there are any early bird discounts, as we are already thinking of when we can go back and visit again!
We have put some pics on Pamela’s Facebook if you would like to see.
Thanks again and Kind Regards

Everything went well and we were particularly grateful for the help which your excellent resort representative,Moustafa,gave us. Moustafa was courteous and efficient and spoke very good English. A day trip which he organised for us to see the temples at Luxor and the Valley of the Kings was especially appreciated.

In conclusion, we were delighted with the service which you provided and would use you again and recommend you to others

Holiday Designers is an excellent company run be exceptionally knowledgable, friendly people who have been available at all times of day and night! We had a wonderful holiday in Sharm El Sheikh, staying at the Four Seasons Hotel which was truly first class. Holiday designers arranged excursions, birthday treats for our son, airport transfers and all the little details that make a holiday special. Having not travelled to Egypt before it was reassuring to know that members of the company had visited the resort and were willing to give honest feedback on their experiences and make genuine recommendations based on our requirements.

Holiday Designers made our vacation at The Four Seasons, Sharm El Sheikh, totally amazing from the minute we landed at the airport. A wonderful Rep met us and drove us to our fabulous hotel and continued to check up on us for the duration of our stay. The hotel was amazing, the service was second to none and at the end of our stay we were taken back to the airport and helped through security by the Rep. Everything was absolutely wonderful - including the price! We have used many travel companies in the past but shall only be using this one in the future. Thankyou so much to everyone at Holiday Designers.

Just a quick email to let you know we had a fabulous holiday in Dahab.  The Bedouin Moon Hotel was excellent – basic hotel but so friendly and great value.  Met lots of people and quickly formed a good group – not something I expect would have been easy in the larger posher resorts.   The dive centre – Reef 2000 – was also excellent.  Very professional and friendly staff – and being one of the nearest hotels to the Blue Hole helped us get there before the crowds !

All went very well with the transfers as well – the reps we're very good.

Thanks !

I would like to thank Holiday Designers for organising my quick sunshine break to Sharm, nothing was too much trouble, even when I had emailed them with a 'hold it - have I made the right decision' email, we spoke the next morning and talked through my reservations on the hotel choice (Hyatt Regency). I am very pleased to say the hotel turned out to be great, along with the food and the staff were very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble and we were asked regularly if everything was satisfactory and if there was anything they could do. The Thai Restaurant is fantastic as is dining al la carte in the Fresco Restaurant I would definitely recommend the Hyatt Regency, go for the upgrade to Regency Club with the additional perks, it was well worth it. if you chose to dine al la carte in the Cafe Fresco it is very reasonably priced as are all the restaurants, eating places and drinks.

Huge thanks to the Holiday Designers Team for arranging such a brilliant golfing holiday at Taba Heights.

Although apprehensive before the off, this being my first trip without family since my husbands death, I  had such a good time.  Quite a tough golf course for 24 handicap ladies but a great challenge, encouraged by Nick our pro. The all-inclusive deal worked very well and nice not to need a purse.

Just returned from a week in Sharm el Sheikh staying at the Jolle Ville Peninsula hotel. We were a group of 12 on a golfing trip and all had a great holiday.

The hotel was better than expected with most of our rooms being huge ,housekeeping was excellent and staff throughout the hotel could not do enough for us no matter what time of day. The golf was fantastic more like millionaires golf as the course was very quiet, the golf club staff were more than helpful, very courteous,friendly and how wonderful to be met after a hot morning of golf, with a cold drink , the service was second to none. All in all we had great service from being met at the airport to leaving for home. I would highly recommend the service we received from both your company in travel arrangements and the Jolie Ville hotel and golf and would not hesitate to book through Holiday Designers again

Many thanks

We had a fantastic time in Egypt and are very happy with your services. The only downfall was the location of the hotel in Dahab (there is no coral reef in the beach) and the fact that Egypt Air planes are very old and the first class seats are not used. All your reps were very professional and useful and of course your staff in your UK office.

We are happy to use your services in the future and have already recommended your agency to friends and families.

The tour guide in Cairo went out of his way to make sure we had a good day out , and he was very informative.
The hotel in Sharm el Sheikh was great , fabulous location , spotlessly clean , and great food etc.

I wanted to thankyou not only for how well you looked after me and all went without a hitch which is always a relief! Meridien not quite as luxorious as Ritz Carlton however really relaxing and quiet with great staff would go again.

You new business should go really well with the customer experience you have shown me & I shall really recommend you to friends and colleagues.

Wanted to let you know also that Excel your partners were fantastic mirrored your service and Yassah could not do enough for us including booking us in at Sharm Airport on our return.

Please keep in touch and let me know special offers and if you are to extend destination outside your current offer. Would certainly like you to be my holiday provider in future.

I would be interested in Four Seasons if you get any good offers or Sofitel Taba and would return to Le Meridien Dahab.

Stayed: The Breakers Diving & Surfing LodgeSoma Bay

We have stayed at the Breakers on previous occasions and dived the house reef often. Perhaps boringly, that's actually all we do because its great for both still and video photography. Out previous trips have been booked with other travel agencies but late this July we got in touch with Holiday Designers to see what they could offer for early September. From our first contact with Dan it was apparent that he was appreciative of our requirements - we are experienced divers, we knew the hotel, knew the diving and just wanted a good price and a trouble free flight and transfer. This time we had to book 2 rooms but the single supplement negotiated by Dan was considerably less than expected and not outrageous. We departed from Manchester on September 7th and returned on the 14th. Holiday Designers provided an excellent service from start to finish. Paperwork and vouchers arrived well in advance of travel, the Excel transfers to and from Hurghada airport were perfect, on time, comfortable and courteous. The attention and follow up from the Holiday Designers were perfect for us, pleasant and professional, both before and after our travel.

Having and travelled dived in different parts of the world, sometimes the most difficult part is arranging the travel, which often detracts from the pleasure of travelling. In this case Holiday Designers made it quite simple, good value and added to the pleasure rather than the opposite.

We will definitely be in touch next time we fancy a diving break, and have had no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Many thanks for a great service.

I’ve never used a specialised holiday designer service before as I assumed it would be much more expensive than booking direct – how wrong could I be.  When booking a recent holiday to Egypt, I got fed up searching for flights/hotels so I got in touch with holiday designers to see if they could help. They were amazing, happy to communicate via email, which is important as I am a busy professional, on the go all day and little time to communicate by phone. They found me the hotel I requested at a board rate that was not available if booking direct and provided a choice of flights at airports I could fly from – this was all considerably cheaper than when I had been searching direct myself.

We also had an issue paying the balance as my partner and I were caught up in the RBS debacle – meaning all of our cards were cancelled and didn’t work! This wasn’t a problem however as holiday designers were extremely flexible and let us pay a little later.     

On route to the airport Phil (my contact at Holiday designers) called me to check I had everything and to let me know which terminal to go to, also the company that would pick me up in Egypt when I arrived – amazing service. He wasn’t pushy or salesman like in any way – he genuinely wanted us to have the best holiday and help where possible.  

When we arrived in Egypt, we were met immediately by our chauffer who helped with our visas and transferred us to our hotel – he was contactable throughout our stay.

The hotel itself was incredible- out of this world. My partner and I travel a lot, and have stayed in many hotels throughout the world  - this was definitely  the most luxurious hotel we have ever stayed in without doubt! Egypt was also incredibly safe, despite what I had been told and was expecting – there is no reason to be reluctant about travelling here – it really is an incredible place.

On return from my holiday Phil called me to check everything had gone smoothly and I enjoyed my holiday – again, not pushy or salesman like – just genuinely interested in our trip. Just a little touch, but it makes all the difference.  

I would definitely use Holiday designers in the future.

Great holiday, good resort, well organised, all ran smoothly.

Air travel: On-time. Extra leg room worth it - cheaper when bought at airport under 2:1 special offer.

Transfer from/to Sharm airport: Efficient, on-time. On a diving holiday might be worth getting visa at Sharm airport to allow entry into national 'park'. We went without visa and got away with it. 

Hotel/resort: Nice place, mainly DINKy or young families. Good quality and facilities available (e.g. shops). We were on half board. Wish we had gone full board since we spent a lot extra on meals, drinks etc in hotel, not least because it is a fair way out of Sharm so did not eat out.

Red Sea Dive College: Excellent teaching, facilities and equipment. We did PADI open water in 4 days which meant we could then do PADI Advanced open water over 2 days.

All in all excellent holiday and we got good dive training. General plans to go back so may call you in the future!

Just a few comments on our holiday.  From check in at, and returning to LGW, we had not the slightest problem.  Transfers, as we have come to expect, to The Marina Lodge were effortless; we love the relaxed atmosphere at The Marina Lodge; the room more than adequate for our needs and was kept very clean; food and service in restaurant good; also in bar.  The hotel was very quiet so do hope that it is not in for another spell of closure.  The Emperor Divers organisation; standard and cleanliness of boats; food and beverages on boat; attention to safety etc; all faultless.  Really do not think that any of these can be improved, Emperor Divers here just seem to have it right.  All in all I think you may have already gathered we had a fantastic week.  Diving just so relaxing, saw things we have never seen before including fuzzy ornate ghost pipefish; lidspot and snowflake morays; robust ghost pipefish; black-blotched porcupinefish.  

Many thanks for the efficient manner in which our booking was managed.  We certainly will be using your operation again and have already recommended you to our friends and those we met on this holiday.

Thank you again.

Thank you so much for a fantastic organised holiday.
We stayed at the Marriott Hotel, Taba Heights in Egypt.
My mother is disabled and gets anxious when travelling abroad, so I made several requests to the Holidays Designers team.
Everything from care for my mum when arriving at the airport, transportation to the hotel, and the rooms were perfectly arranged for us.
Our rep had been given all our details from Holiday Designers, and had ensured everything had been taken care of for our arrival.
I had been to the Marriott Hotel at Taba Heights 8 years ago, so knew the service, facilities and location were just what we we looking for.
They cater very well for those with walking difficulties, or those in wheel chairs.
The Marriott recently celebrated 10 years, and had made some improvements since my last visit.
We booked all inclusive, so food was available from the hotel from 7.30am to 10pm from the restaurant or a bar.
The non-alcoholic drinks included fruit juices, fizzy drinks, and water. Alcoholic drinks were mainly locally produced and unbranded, and a range of cocktails.
You could also purchase other alcoholic beverages from the bars.
The swimming pool is huge, with waterfalls, spa and a pool bar. There is an artificial beech at one end, where a gently slope takes you in to the pool.
This was very useful to get my mum in to the pool. She had not been in the water for 10 years before this, despite going on holidays every year.
The hotel staff were amazing, so friendly and dealt with any request efficiently.
I would thoroughly recommend the Marriott Hotel, a holiday to Egypt and Holiday Designers to book your holiday.
Thank you to the team at Holiday Designers for making this holiday special and memorable.

I have to say Holiday Designers is second to none. we chose to fly to Sharm and be transferred up to Taba. All the staff we met, drivers, reps were wonderful we felt like royalty. Yasser who took us up there, Karim who arranged our trip to Petra, Rabie who came brought us back - it couldn't have been better. Dan phoned us the night before we flew to check everything was OK and gave us Karim's name and said he would look after us, he also called after we got back to see how things went - the answer was - perfect. The service was brilliant and we will not arrange holidays with anyone else.

The trip itself, was fantastic, everything went as planned, everything was on time, we knew exactly what was happening all the way through, we had a bonus of the hotel upgrading us again to a suite of rooms, the hotel was amazing.

I was looking for a diving holiday in Egypt, but the normal Dive Travel Agents were either unable to help or couldn’t be bothered to get information back to me.
I contacted you and was very surprised by the prompt and efficient reply I received. We had 7 days in El Gouna at the Movenpick Hotel with 5 days boat diving with Emperor Divers.
The transfers to and from Hurghada air port were painless, with a dedicated driver.  The hotel was outstanding, and the diving was spectacular!
All in all the holiday was a great success and very memorable for all the right reasons.
I certainly wont hesitate to recommend Holiday Designers and use them again in the future.  A very caring and understanding company to deal with.
Many thanks again for a great time.

Daniel booked our last minute holiday to the Movenpick in El Gouna, Egypt. He returned my call on the Sunday before we wanted to go away and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.  I would definitely use Holiday-Designers again and would also recommend to anyone who is looking for a personal service.

All four of us would like to thank you and your team, especially Alona for arranging our holiday, which turned out to be absolutely brilliant.  We could  not have asked for more excellent holiday arrangements, everything was spot on, you all did a great job with our arrangements from start to finish.  As you know it was our friends 75th birthday and he was absolutely flabbergasted with the hotel and and could not believe how smooth everything went especially the champagne and goodies in their room. He had a fabulous birthday and cannot stop talking about it since we have been home. 

Once again many thanks for all your hard work and we will definitely book with you for our next holiday abroad.

Thanks holiday designers for giving us the best holiday ever. Just arrived back from the gorgeous Sharm el Sheikh stayed at the Jolie Ville Maritim Peninsula and it really was perfect, the food was great, the hotel spotless, the grounds were beautiful, the pool amazing, always plenty of sunbeds all day long, the entertainment was typical but fine, in a great spot only 5 mins in a cab from anywhere. Even though everyone said about the low flying planes it does not bother you at all, you get used to it. The guide that picked us up was extremely helpful and the two trips we booked with him were so much fun, definitely recommend the desert quad bikes, with show, camel ride, meal and star gazing as well as boat trip for snorkelling. Cant wait to go back. It was very hard to leave.

Thanks so much for such a stellar holiday! The Bedouin Moonhotel was exactly as anticipated (in a good way), the staff super helpful, your rep in Sharm was charming, transfers seamless and the diving with Reef 2000 amazing! All in all a very happy customer who was recommending you left, right and centre to fellow frustrated holiday makers who had paid much more for much less.

Thanks again, I had a great time.

Dan was always responsive and very helpful in every request that I had when planning my holiday. He was very patient when it came to waiting for documents and was on hand to answer questions whenever I had them. When I arrived at the airport, my (very friendly) transfer was waiting for me and was with me right up until I'd checked-in. The whole experience was completely painless. I'll definitely use Holiday Designers again in the future when planning a diving holiday.

A quick email to say a huge thank you for organising such an outstanding Nile Cruise.  The Sonesta Star Goddess was excellent - we felt more than happy eating everything off the menu and not a hint of the stomach troubles we feared.  The balcony was fantastic, really adding to the experience.  All of the staff were helpful and friendly.  Our English Speaking Guide, Hany Shafik was superb!.  All of you at Holiday Designers have been fantastic, friendly and always available to answers questions. 

We would recommend a Nile Cruise organised by yourself to anyone.

Once again, many thanks.

Holiday Designers was recommended to me by a friend and I can honestly say that I will be recommending your company to others.  I dealt with Carolyn, she was very helpful, I told her where I wanted to go and my budget and she came back to me within a day.  Carolyn also chased me up for passport numbers etc which was very useful, if i'd been left to my own devices I would have forgotten!  The holiday its self was great, the hotel was lovely, the food was the best all inclusive food I have had, the staff were very friendly and there was plenty of activities to do at the hotel if you wanted to be active and the private beach was the icing on the cake!  I would definately use Holiday Designers again in the future.

I just wanted to let you know that John and I were absolutely delighted with your service, care and attention regarding our booking with you for our holiday to the Kempinski Hotel in Soma Bay in March this year.
Having booked pretty much at the last minute, the efficiency of your service was first class.
I would  very much like to mention, your helpful and efficient conduct regarding my medical dilemma and your wonderful liason with my daughter enabling her to ensure that my medical needs were met on arrival at Hurgada airport.
Very many thanks once again for all your care and attention, we will certainly be in touch with you regarding further holiday bookings.
Yours sincerely

I have already written a report on the hotel for Trip Advisor and this has now been published.

As to Holiday Designers, I have already recommended you to my friends and family and would have no problem in similarly recommending your services to the public at large.

As I said to Carolyn on the telephone yesterday, from the first time I contacted you, to the return journey home, you dealt with my requests in an exemplary manner, and I would not consider using any other agency for holidays in the future if the destination is one to which you send clients.

Your approach was professional and first class, everything you arranged was perfect, and the confidence I placed in you was well justified.

A great little company, with I hope, a great future.

You are welcome to use this endorsement as you see fit and I would be happy if prospective clients wished to contact me, when I would reiterate the quality of your service.

With best wishes,

Mr K Sandford

Stayed:Maritim Jolie Ville Golf ResortSharm el Sheikh

We only decided to go to Sharm in early January and knowing very little about it went on to the internet to find out what we could. As we wished to golf and to snorkel we quickly found this hotel. We then became extremely lucky as we then hit on the Holiday Designers web site; more about this later.

The hotel was very quiet when we were there so service and all aspects of the management were never under strain and could not have been more helpful. One slight point for visitors to prepare for is the difficulty in getting sufficient small enough Egyption notes........£5 and £10 ....for tipping, which seems essential anot just in the hotel but everywhere. The Hotel should have available far more low denomination notes than they appear to have.

The room was large, clean and very comfortable, it was serviced both efficiently and promptly each morning. The restaurants were good , sometimes very good. The pools were very good, the access to the beach was a bit of a 'hike' but well worth the effort. All areas of the resort were kept very clean and attractive.

The golf course was surprisingly good and the greens remarkable, particularly when the desert was ony a couple of hundred yeards away. The staff both there and at the hotel were attentaive and helpful, and revealed a delightful sense of humour.

Because we were golfing we only went on one excursion, which was organised by Holiday Designers' local rep. He was extremely well organised, not only with regard to that excursion( A trip to snorkel off shore at a wreck site) but both on arrival at and departure from the airport. We have travelled throughout the world over many many years and have never been looked after quite so efficiently as he and the company he acts for Holiday Designers, looked after us from the first contact to the last. 

The older one gets, fit and active though we are, the more you appreciate such care and attention. It is very pleasant to be able just to relax and leave the travel hassle to somebody else.

Thanks to Holiday Designers the holiday got off to a great start. Met at the airport, Ras Mo visa organised in a few minutes with no need to queue, helped with the luggage then taken straight to the hotel, Hyatt Regency. Been before and the environment, service and food was as great as the last time.

Even the return journey was made very easy, no effort or thought required, everything very well organised from initial booking to the flight home.

Thank you

“A terrific winter deal with”
Four Seasons is undoubtedly the best hotel in the area and normally outside my budget until I found a terrific company called Holiday Designers.

Holiday Designers went the extra mile to get a great deal including air fare, all transport to and from resort, a fabulous room and an amazing diving package together with the most helpful on site representative (he was invaluable in helping us get a last minute visa to dive at Ras Mohammed).

I still can't figure how they provided such an amazing deal to include all this!

As well as a courtesy call before our trip, to wish us well and make sure we had all the contact details and papers we required, it was clear Holiday Designers had relayed our wishes to The Four Seasons who treated us to quality service.

Upon arriving home, Holiday Designers followed up to make sure our trip had been good. With their outstanding service and ability to secure such fantastic deals, we'll be using them again.

“Fantastic holiday”
Organised by Dan Lion at, from the first phone call to the end it was just fabulous. Rabie met us at the airport and took care of everything. Private taxi transfer. The only down side was on arrival the desk clerk spent a long time harranging us to upgrade to 'fully inclusive', which is not what we needed after such a long trip. We decided against it anyway because we have friends in Sharm. It is good value if you book it at the hotel (do barter) but you would need to be an alcaholic or seriously hungry to warrant the extra.

Dan organised us a complimentary upgrade to the Royal Wing, which was superb. Great room, lovely gardens and we we felt really special. The beds were huge but very hard and the bathroom needs the tiles re-grouting just to cheer it up but other than that, we could not fault the room.

The hotel itself is a splendid place and though some 13 years old now, is kept pretty well up to scratch. Plenty of water, having pools and rivers meandering through the gardens which in themselves are a delight. The golf course is splendid, offering a practice range and a good 'short game' practice area which I found very useful. Like the rest of the hotel, the staff were amazing.

Ashram the bar manager is a fantastic personality and made sure his team looked after us for our two weeks and did the same with the restaurant manager. The food was fabulous but we ate mainly in the Bistro cafe opposite the main bar, where the service and choice were superb.

There are four different 'happy hours' in the Ascot, Cove and La Luna bars, three of these offering 50% reduction - well worth it. The local beer is very good and there also well known International brands available.

A regular free bus service to Naama Bay and taxis are available (do check on price before you get in) and bare in mind the hotel ones are more expensive but in turn are also accountable! If you want a quiet, relaxing, pampered holiday then this would suit perfectly. Not cheap but quality seldom is. Do give Dan a call at Holiday Designers and let him help, great service and a wealth of knowledge in the industry.

Finally, if you are over six feet tall, try and a emergency exit seat, Mr Thompson is like most of the chartered airlines in that fill the thing up to the rim.

If you would like Holiday Designers to organise your next trip, please do not hesitate to contact us, so that you can experience the same first class service that has been enjoyed by so many of our happy customers.
