“I have known Christine Clark for over ten years, during which time she has become a valued and trusted supplier as well as a good friend. Over the years, Christine has arranged so many wonderful holidays for us, ranging from excursions for nine to Florida, memorable golf holidays at Pebble Beach (amongst others), annual ski trips, various European jaunts, work-related travel to China with Harry Connick Jr (that was an interesting one), sunshine retreats in Dubai and the best South African safari imaginable.
Christine was born with a passion for organisation, at which she absolutely excels. Nothing phases her, nothing is too much trouble and she will never let a problem get the better of her. She has helped us out of so many scrapes, for example, managing to virtually air-lift us out of Orlando just before a hurricane struck, and somehow getting us out of Dubai before anyone else when Silverjet went out of business whilst we were away. These are just two examples of how she is always on hand to lend her unwavering support and provide solutions to unexpected problems. Perhaps even more importantly, she always does so with such grace and in an incredibly calm and professional manner.
One of the other huge advantages of working with Chris is that she has so much experience in the leisure market that she knows all the best hotels and most interesting areas to visit. She knows us so well now that we often just take her recommendation for the most suitable place to stay.
Moreover, I can’t count the number of times that she seems to know the manager at so many places and is able to secure preferential treatment for us. She will handle all aspects of a trip, from transfers to car hire, to tee times, to theatre bookings, to sports fixture tickets etc. If I said that working with Christine is like having a personalised concierge service I wouldn’t be overstating the case.
Christine is a person of the utmost integrity and trust. She will always be upfront and honest about all aspects of any booking and seems to work around the clock to make sure that the client is satisfied. She is incredibly hard-working and seems to thrive on making people happy. I can’t remember a time when she didn’t contact us on our return from a trip to ask for feedback and make sure that everything was how it should have been.“
