I asked Nikki if she could assist us with booking a weekend European city break. This was a celebration to mark my father-in-law's 70th birthday - from five years ago! Yes, life and pandemics can get in the way of holidays, but my father-in-law really wanted to make this happen.
There was a growing feeling of "it's now or never" and we really didn't want to let him down. The plan was for David, his wife Gill, and three daughters (and partners) to join them on a long weekend in Bruges. This was somewhere we all wanted to visit, but none of us had been. I'd heard of other people endorsing Nikki's services, so I didn't hesitate to contact her and to give our requirements.
Nikki selected a considerable number of options for us and was invited to join a family WhatsApp group so that she could share her ideas with us. This really did make everything so much easier for us and alleviated all the hassle.
Nikki suggested a hotel in the heart of Bruges, right on the side of a canal, and a train service via Eurostar into Brussels with a connecting "open" service to Bruges. We went ahead and asked her to book it for us. She delivered a small travel pack containing our tickets and even packed some travel sweets. A lovely touch indeed.
I can honestly say that this was one of the best weekend breaks we have ever been on. It's probably the best! The hotel couldn't have been located any better and made sightseeing so simple for us, as we were less than a ten-minute walk from the main square and the impressive Belfort clock tower.
It had everything that we needed and was clean and tidy, perfect for a short break. We all agreed that it was superb value and are planning to return for the Christmas markets this year!
Nikki, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for turning a dream into the most memorable time for all of us. I would not hesitate to recommend you to everyone I know, and I speak for all of us when I say this.
