Hello I am Beverley and I have lived in Dubai with my family for almost four years. My background for over ten years has been in the travel industry but I have had the travel bug for a lot longer than that.
I have joined Travel Counsellors because it prides its self on excellent customer service as do I.
Since my first job which took me to Moscow and the then Leningrad, I have been fascinated by travel and experiencing new destinations and cultures.
I have been fortunate enough to travel with my jobs to European cities including Vienna, Budapest, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, Rome, Florence and Venice on the Orient Express. The Greek islands, Italian lakes and the Far East in my youth was followed by Australia and America when I was married.
As a family we have travelled to Lapland, Mediterranean resorts, Australia, Florida and Dubai before we moved here. I have experienced all types of travel during different stages of my life and I know just how important the careful planning of your holiday is. I want to get it exactly right for you, so you have special memories for years to come.
You can speak to me at a time that suits you and you can always be assured that every detail will be planned for you with the upmost care, as if it was my own holiday.
So whether it is visiting beautiful cities, a safari, skiing, a family holiday or staycation; whatever you want to get out of your travel experience I can organise it for you.
Let me take the stress away from searching on-line sites or visiting agents. I will be your very own personal organiser and help find you the best holiday to suit you. You can call me, email or if possible we can meet to discuss exactly what you want from your holiday or business trip. I have access to Travel Counsellors technology and personal recommendations from Travel Counsellors based all over the world, so I am fully equipped to deliver all your travel needs.
I will offer you an unbiased personal service with the benefit of working with the most customer service awarded travel company in the industry. Travel Counsellors deal only with suppliers that agree to meet its high standards and all its customers receive 24/7 support and financial security.
I really look forward to hearing from you, to help you arrange your next travel experience.
Please send me your holiday or travel requirements and I will do my best to help you. Or drop me a note about becoming a Travel Counsellor.

Bev is just amazing and I can't recommend her enough. We were not the easiest client to deal with for our honeymoon as we had a few curve balls thrown due to last minute visa issues; but she knocked it out of the park! She had the really difficult task to organise our honeymoon to Kenya with very limited notice and during peak season. She was so quick to respond on everything and really provided us with comfort that despite limited availability, we could still achieve our dream honeymoon. And dream is exactly what it was; she planned out the trip of a lifetime and everything was so well organised that we never had to worry about anything and she was always available from start to finish. I felt in very safe hands which is what you want when going somewhere a bit more off the beaten track. Thanks so much again Bev

Beverley at Travel Counsellors worked a miracle when she organised my husband's 50th birthday celebration in South Africa. There were 14 people in our party convening in South Africa from different parts of the world. Beverley presented a variety of options based on my requirements and the final choices were perfectly suited to us all. The international flights, hotels, transfers, internal flights were expertly managed taking all the associated stress away from me. Beverley had an expert knowledge of the region and lots of contacts within the industry so I was very comfortable with her recommendations as I had not travelled to South Africa before. Our tour guide in South Africa was amazing. Faizal Wanza was knowledgeable, witty, and sensitive to our needs as travelers. We had a guide who was captivating and a pleasure to travel with. Faizal was able to connect with the children and adults alike and he had the right balance of leadership and stepping back to let us explore on our own. Even though our time was limited we all feel that we experienced the very best of Cape Town. We had our very own luxury bus which was extremely clean and comfortable so we always arrived refreshed and ready to explore. Our next stop was Kruger. We cannot fault the lodge. Beverley booked Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge for the next part of trip. Again we did not need to worry about our safari itinerary as this was all taken care of. This was a top-class luxury lodge set in the middle of the African plains. The views were phenomenal and we often enjoyed our coffee overlooking a waterhole where many of the reserve's animals came to drink. We spotted the Big 5 on our first sunset safari! To summarise then, we all had an unforgettable and magical experience together. Everything was perfect, definitely a highlight of our lives which we will always cherish. Thank you Bev!

Bev was amazing! We had a very sketchy idea of places we'd like to visit and some activities we'd like to try during a two month holiday in the USA. Bev really understood the kind of trip that would work for our family and took care of everything. We had great accommodation, seamless travel and amazing experiences which included horse riding, cattle-ranching, hiking, fishing, paddle-boarding, wake-boarding, sailing, sightseeing and taking in shows. Everything detail was taken care of and organised seamlessly. Thank you!

I have just completed my third trip with Beverley. Her attention to detail from planning the trip to when we hit the ground on the other side is second to none. Beverley goes above and beyond making sure she has planned every detail of the perfect trip for everyone and her colleagues who take care of us on the other side leave us feeling very spoiled, welcomed and looked after for the entirety of the trip. I would wholeheartedly recommend Beverley for anyone wishing to have an amazing experience without worrying about a thing??

I have gone on trips to India, Nepal and the Maldives using Bev as my travel agent. She has always gone above and beyond. Her assistance before and during my trips has been invaluable. She always follows up and triple checks all angles involved with the itinerary. I would recommend Bev to anyone and everyone going anywhere!

I have used Beverley Rose at Travel Counsellors 5 times now to arrange visits to Mauritius, Kerala in India, Thailand, Sri Lanka and the Maldives. She saved me an inordinate amount of time researching the various hotels and itineraries and making sure that she met all our needs. Finding accommodation for a family of 5 is never easy. The hotels she found us in Mauritius and Kerala were perfect for us and a minor problem with a visit to the Elephants in Kerala (which was of no fault of Travel Counsellors) was compensated by a wonderful basket of wine and chocolates sent to our room and an amazing trip and lunch on an upgraded houseboat. The cost of both the trips was also waived. They couldn’t have done more. We are now looking forward to a wonderful trip to Koh Samui at New Year, a fantastic itinerary for Sri Lanka at Easter, which I could never have coordinated myself as there is so much to see and do there, and a trip of a life time to the Maldives in what looks to be a stunning hotel. I can’t see me ever organising my own travels again! I cannot recommend her services enough and am sure she has saved us so much money and time and given us priceless memories to cherish.”

Thanks for the really good support in all aspects of this trip from the initial planning stages for Cyprus and then as we pivoted towards Maldives. In the end Maldives was for sure the right decision. The support before, during, and after has been top notch especially to that of the Zika details which was a product of your good investigation to raise to our attention.

My family and I visited Mauritius in August during the winter season to take advantage of the extra public holiday. It is a tropical island which is green and lush so we expected rain and it would be a welcome escape from the summer temperatures in Dubai. Mauritius has a micro climate, meaning that it can be raining in one part of the island, while in another part enjoying clear sunny skies. It also only has two seasons, summer from November to April and winter from May to October. The Airport is in the south east of...

I have been on holiday to the Algarve in Portugal many times during my younger days to visit friends who worked there for the same travel company as I. Back then I didn't venture much further than the pool or the night spots and I didn't appreciate the beauty and culture Portugal had to offer. I had also been once before with my young family and friends with children of a similar age. We chose to stay in a fully equipped villa with a bbq so we could self cater for a few fussy eaters....

My family and I have just returned from a Eid family break to the Shangri La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa. It was our first visit to Oman and our initial impressions were how pleasant the weather was in comparison to Dubai. The temperature was almost 10c cooler and the humidity a lot less too. We flew with Emirates to Muscat airport and easily obtained our visa at the airport. Its good to note that some professional visas with at least six months validity will allow the holder and their family a free visa upon entry. Please...

In July I was lucky enough to holiday in the province of Alberta in Western Canada. Often associated with fabulous ski resorts in the winter months, the Canadian Rockies is also a stunning destination to visit during the summer. The variety of things to see and do was far more than I had ever envisaged and the scenery more breathe taking than I had imagined. It is definitely an outdoors holiday because you don’t want to miss out on the jaw dropping scenery and fresh mountain air. However the walking can be as adventurous or relaxed as you like...

After visiting Euro Disney and Hong Kong Disney, Florida was the obvious next step for my family to experience, especially as they are thrill seeking addicts with me trying to keep up! We had been to Florida previously, some years ago for my best friend’s wedding. My son was just ten weeks old then so as you can imagine thrill seeking with a new baby wasn’t exactly on the cards then, although we did hold our baby son up during the character parade to give him his first glimpse of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. This time we travelled...

Lots of us dream as a child of meeting Santa in the magical snowy landscape where he lives. I wanted to give my children that opportunity while they still believed and a memory that they would always remember. I can honestly say that it is still to date the best family holiday we have experienced together but not just because of Santa! On arrival in temperatures of -10 we were collected and on route to our accommodation, fitted out in our essential thermal clothing and boots. The log cabin we had chosen was in Yllas in Finnish Lapland....
