KatieConcierge Assistant at the Inspiring Travel Company
After travelling to many destinations around the world such as Egypt, America, the Caribbean and across Europe, I had the opportunity to work at ITC in their Academy programme with West Cheshire College. I was then given a permanent position working in the Concierge & Client Experiences team in 2014.
Along with a passion for travel and music I am keen to ensure all of our clients at ITC have the most memorable experience throughout their holiday and want to encourage every client to try something amazing each time they travel.
If you want to do it, I will try my utmost to make it happen. I am able to provide recommendations around the world and I always offer an option of doing something out of the ordinary. One of our most popular experiences and one that's still on my personal wish list is the Sundowner Dinner Dune Safari in Dubai which offers a truly cultural experience in the sandy surroundings of the city, giving the opportunity to dine real Arabic style whilst being under a wide open sky in a Bedouin camp.
One of my favourite destinations to visit was Egypt; the main highlight was having a camel race through the desert and dinner with a Bedouin tribe. I explored lots of local areas including the bazaar at Cairo, a boat journey down the Nile, a ‘behind the scenes tour’ of the ancient pyramids and a close up with the Sphinx.
After having the privilege to go on an ITC trip to Thailand I would say that this is a destination that has also gone in my top 5 places to visit again. We only had a short time there but I was still able to experience things I would never have thought of, such as the sunrise yoga on top of the Peninsula Hotel in Bangkok and the hustle & bustle of one of the local markets. I would say the 'Land of Smiles' has so much to offer it is definitely worth another visit!
