Before we begin our journey together, here is a little bit of my background:
Prior to becoming a Travel Counsellor, my career to date has been focused on customer service; the last 12 years of which have been in Dubai.
Originally from the UK, my passion for travel has stemmed from a childhood of living in Nigeria, Bahrain and Singapore which enabled me to experience different cultures and places from a young age. After graduation I worked Ski Seasons in France, Summer Seasons in Greece and Sardinia; taking the opportunity to travel around the respective countries in between. Later on, I took a gap year and undertook a solo round the world trip encompassing Honduras, Guatemala, Ecuador including the Galapagos Islands, Bolivia, Peru (Inca Trail and Machu Pichu), Argentina, Chile, Easter Island (Rapa Nui), Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam.
Since moving to Dubai, I have traveled to Oman, Georgia, Jordan, South Africa, Maldives, Mauritius and New York. One thing is for sure, the list of places to visit never gets any shorter!

My husband and I went to Mauritius for 7 nights in July 2019, our holiday was based around kite-surfing as during the winter months the south west corner of the island, Le Morne, is world famous for its wind and its Lagoon. A perfect spot to either hone your skills (my husband) or like me, to learn. We stayed at the 4*star all-inclusive Riu hotel as it is situated a few minutes’ walk along the beach to the kite surf center. The hotel offers both adult only and family options with numerous daily activities, evening entertainment, spa and themed restaurants to enjoy....

My husband arranged for us to go to Tbilisi for our wedding anniversary over 4 nights, it is a 3.5-hour flight from Dubai, with no time difference to factor in and visa on arrival making it a very accessible destination for a city break. We stayed at the 4*star Courtyard by Marriott centrally located on Freedom Square and within walking distance of the Old City and many of Tbilisi’s attractions including the Georgian National Museum, Rustaveli Theatre and the State Opera House. Our first experience of Tbilisi was a rookie error – the taxi ride from the airport to the hotel, we...

If you are booking a holiday than I 100% would recommend you book through Joana. This was the first time we booked through Joanna and from the exceptional service we received from start to finish, I will now only book my future holidays with her again. When booking we gave her our preferred requirements, which she not only found us exactly what we were looking for but also found the holiday and flights within our budget. We had a personal issue at the airport which meant we could not fly, we called Joanna at 1 am (she answered!) and she sorted everything for us, changed our flight, changed the hotel dates, arranged all the documents we required for travel and even kept us calm through the entire procedure. It really does pay to book through an agent as if we booked the holiday on our own we would have most probably lost the hotel let alone all the stress trying to sort it all out. Hand on my heart, we can’t thank Joanna enough for what she did for us. Customer service was beyond 5 stars and words can not express, 10 stars are still not enough. Thank you so much, Joanna!! I will go above and beyond now to share our amazing experience booked by you with anyone looking to book a holiday. Exceptional!

We booked to go to the Ritz Carlton al Wadi through Joanna and she was absolutely amazing! She managed to get us an amazing deal for the two nights in a lovely villa with private plunge pool. From start to finish she was on hand to make sure we had an amazing time sending all of the activities and menu choices before our stay and assisting in booking things to make the stay so much more memorable. She managed to arrange an early check in with the hotel and some lovely birthday celebrations including a fantastic cake and chocolates! I can highly recommend Joanna for any of your travel needs, I will definitely be using her again for any travel in the future as she makes the holiday even more enjoyable right from the time of booking.

Joanna’s service arranging our recent staycation was AMAZING! She took care of every detail, making it so easy and effortless for us. Within just a couple of days of our enquiry, she’d presented us with some brilliant options, confirmed our chosen hotel and sorted all of the details to make sure we had the best possible stay. She took the time to call us before and after our stay to ensure everything was as it should be. With Joanna you get the personal touch and can be assured that she has everything covered to help you have the best, hassle-free holiday.

Jo was brilliant with planning my holiday - she thought of loads of little things I never would have thought of. She was incredibly patient and considerate with walking me through everything, as well as putting together alternate options. 10/10!

Planes, trains & automobiles! Joanna sorted a very complex family holiday for us through 5 European countries in 7 days. All types of travel were used and all linkedup flawlessly. With 2 kids (12 and 10) in tow we needed to ensure it went smoothly and even when we had bad weather cause a flight diversion, she adjusted the transit company to ensure we were still met at the correct airport at correct time. We all immensely enjoyed it and Joanna's efforts were huge and directly related to less stress for us on the holiday. Highly recommended!

Having worked with Joanna years ago I knew how detail orientated and customer focussed she is. I didn’t make it easy, not having a clue where in the world to go, we had a great initial chat where she drew out our likes/dislikes and from there she quickly sent over a small curated selection of holiday options. There was a clear winner which we’d never have found if we’d have looked for ourselves. Highly recommended and excited for our hols!

Got a recommendation on here to use Travel Counsellor Joanna Spruce. She literally put together a total holiday package with flights, hotel accommodation, transfers to & from airport, travel insurance with different options for 4 or 5 nights. This would have taken me endless nights of scrolling on my iPad which she did in a matter of a few hours. Unfortunately due to ill health the holiday has been postponed but I would definitely use her again as the time and hassle she saved me was invaluable. She’s also added me to her mailing list with great special offers which travel agents get for getaway deals here in the UAE.
