Maldives - All
Are you longing for the ultimate getaway but have no idea where to start planning? Then you have come to the right place.
I’m Ciara from Cambridge in the UK, I joined the aviation industry at 18 years old and I was a flight attendant for 15 years. I have lived in Dubai for almost 13 years which as most people say has flown by! I had the privileged opportunity to work for one of the best airlines in the world based here in Dubai, working commercially in all 3 cabins (Economy, Business and First Class) as well as VVIP experience. I was truly fortunate to travel to over 75 countries and 6 continents, each one unique and beautiful in its own way.
Some of my personal favourite and cherished experiences include hang-gliding in Rio, visiting the luscious tea plantations in Sri Lanka, floating in the Dead Sea and exploring Petra in Jordan, the spectacular Taj Mahal in India, the Terracotta Army and the Great Wall in China, campervanning around New Zealand, shopping and shows in New York, Niagara Falls in Toronto, sightseeing around Europe, Caribbean cruises, sunbathing and snorkelling in Mauritius, Seychelles, Zanzibar and Maldives – to name a few!
Allow me as your travel counsellor to use my worldwide experience and knowledge to plan and guide you for that unforgettable and stress-free vacation.
I take pride in my eye for detail and put my customers’ needs first. I will be flexible with my time to make sure I am available to you when you need it. This is my promise to you.
Whether it’s an adventure-seeking trip, honeymoons/weddings, relaxing getaway, cruises, sightseeing/city breaks or a local staycation in UAE – with me anything is possible.
For bespoke holidays and planning get in touch and make your dream a reality. I look forward to hearing from you.

My husband and I decided to visit Cyprus for a week in April 2021. The weather was great, it’s only 4 hours flight from Dubai, and driving around the island exploring the beautiful nature was exactly what we wanted. We decided to stay at The Four Seasons Hotel Limassol and we are very glad we did! This was a 5-star hotel with great facilities. My first impression was the lovely décor and the wonderful staff that made our stay memorable. I would recommend taking a sea view room as all rooms facing the ocean have a balcony and it was...

Speaking very frankly, I have always prided myself in organizing international travel for myself and my family without the assistance of a travel consultant. I have done this for many years now and made only a handful of blunders. However, in the midst of a pandemic, I thought it best to seek the guidance of a professional, and after trawling through numerous profiles on the TC website, I clicked on Ciara’s profile and was immediately persuaded by her international travel experience, even though she was relatively new to the travel consultancy business. My itinerary was quite complicated, involving travel to the UK to arrive on time from my granddaughter’s birth, which meant going via Iceland (for 12 days) to avoid hotel quarantine in London! Ciara was amazing from start to finish. She was super responsive, answering queries almost instantaneously, and extremely patient with me given I was chopping and changing my itinerary all the time. She also hooked me up with one of her colleagues in Iceland, Rannveig Snorradóttir, who provided local advice on an almost daily basis while I was travelling around Iceland. In summary, I recommend Ciara Lees without reservation, she's extremely good at what she does, and I will not hesitate to use her services in the future.

We had a wonderful trip to Georgia in June-July 2021, thanks to Ciara. She planned everything better than we had even asked. She took care of even the smallest details like organising a car seat for our toddler, PCR tests for us in our hotel room, our seat preferences on the plane there & back etc. She researched & informed us of all the ever-changing rules & regulations, regarding travel during these Covid times. She ensured we had the best hotel rooms, guides, drivers & vehicles. We didn’t have to worry about a single thing. She was available, for any query, pretty much at any time, day or night. The attention to detail & the personalised arrangements of everything is why we will always be using her to assist us with our future holidays. Thank you, Ciara.

What can I say… Ciara was the best part of our trip to Dubai! She booked us the best hotels and she sent us tips on what to see and where to eat in Dubai. She took care of all of the small details and found us the best trip! She was also available 24/7! Thank you so much!!

I booked my holidays through Ciara, from Travel Counsellors, and the whole process was very easy. Ciara was extremely helpful, and she went out of her way by regularly checking the prices of some of our favourite hotels until she came out with the best rates we could find on the internet. Her approach was truly personalized, giving us several choices matching our preferences. In the end, we were all over the moon with the views and location of the 2 hotels that she helped us book. JW Marriott Marquis in particular had one of the best views over the city of Dubai, and the breakfast was fantastic! I definitely recommend Ciara after my experience. You can feel from the beginning that she really cares for her clients.
