The last year was a really strange year for us, after having most of our bookings cancelled and with little idea what was going to happen we suddenly in July became hugely busy with bookings and we were happy to say all our hard work paid off recieving a Travelers choice badge award from Trip avisor. Lets hope for a better 2021.
