Sarah Heaney – Travel Presenter

I travel a lot, both as a travel presenter and also with my family – and have come to realise that it’s planning the little things that can make all the difference. We recently decided to use the services of The Travel Architect to ‘make that difference’ when booking a family holiday to Oman, and we weren’t dissapointed. All our requirements were taken care of, from the organising of flights to suit our busy schedule and accommodation to match our needs, right the way through to booking all of the extras like spa treatments and diving trips. I would thoroughly recommend using Fiona, her experience not only takes the pain out of trying to organise a holiday yourself – but her knowledge can really make the difference between an average trip and a truly memorable time.

Sarah Heaney is a presenter on ITV’s Wish You Were Here and recently presented Downsize in Dubai.

Fiona has arranged several holidays for us over the past few years. If you are looking for a special bespoke holiday, then I think it is essential that you use a Travel Specialist like Fiona. She has years of experience in the travel industry and numerous contacts to make sure that your trip is organised exactly the way you want it. Attention to detail is Fiona’s speciality and no stone is left unturned. She will bend over backwards to make sure your trip is an experience to be remembered. From short breaks to long haul destinations and always with a budget agreed, Fiona will make sure your holiday is one to remember.

Marc and Jen Turner – Slamannan

Our trip to New Zealand to visit family was transformed into a fabulous round the world experience. Fiona spent time finding out what we were looking for, and suggested a number of options for our holiday. We then had fabulous stopovers in Hong Kong and the Cook Islands, with the travel and accommodation arrangements working perfectly. We look forward to many holidays in the future arranged by The Travel Architect.

Fiona helped to make our honeymoon the dream that all newlyweds hope for. We supplied the dates, the budget and some thoughts on the type of holiday that were looking for and Fiona provided the rest. From finding the perfect resort in Mauritius to ensuring that all of our transfers ran smoothly, The Travel Architect really helped make our honeymoon one that we will never forget. Thanks again.


This is the first time that we have used Fiona to provide travel services and it will not be the last. We wanted a memorable family holiday for a special birthday celebration and Fiona played a huge part in delivering this. After supplying an outline of what we were after, Fiona provided us with the blueprints remarkably quickly and all of a sudden our holiday was booked. Fiona selected a fantastic hotel for us in midtown Manhattan and attended to our needs for transfers and kept us right on US entry documentation. The destinations of our Caribbean cruise were also ideal for us, meeting our desire to visit places of cultural, scenic and historical interest. Fiona’s attention to detail was fantastic (e.g. cabins on separate sides of the ship to allow sun / shade and different perspectives from our balconies) and her enthusiasm for what she does shines through to her clients’ benefit. Americans and cruise lines are famed for their client servicing – Fiona surpassed them both as you know that this is not a veneer but a genuine desire to provide her clients with what they want. As you can no doubt tell, we had a great and memorable holiday. Thanks for all your help. We really appreciate your input, direction, support and kindness. I will without doubt be seeking your professional services again, and not just for special occasion holidays.
Very best wishes and thanks again.

Mrs A Williams – Crieff

Thank you for organising a great time at Craigsanquhar, your service was first-rate – I’ve been recommending you to everyone! It made the whole thing so much easier. So, sorry, can’t immediately think of anything that you could do to improve, you’ve got it very well thought out and running very smoothly! Thanks again.

Jenny and Tim – Chesterfield

Using Fiona as ‘travel architect’ was our first experience of this kind of service. What felt like an extravagance turned out to be a sound investment and the very best way to plan a stress free trip. Through research, bookings and all confirmations, every detail was attended to. Our flights, car hire and five different hotel locations all went like clockwork. Our enjoyment of The Garden Route in South Africa was planned & enhanced by Fiona and we look forward to using her services again in the future.


I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for all you assistance in helping me to find such a perfect venue for Dannii & my honeymoon. It was a truly amazing setting, beautiful scenary, exceptional guest service from the hotel staff and the weather was outstanding. I think we had between 28 and 38 degrees the whole time we were there. I also wanted to thank you for the card you left us in the room. It was a very nice touch. I am not sure if you organized for the champagne in the room or if the hotel did that of their own accord but if you did have a hand in it. Thank you for that also. You truly did an amazing job in sourcing the gem that is the Kasbah Tamadot and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Mr and Mrs G. McGinlay – Stirlingshire

I thought I would let you know that after using The Travel Architect twice recently I have to say you provide a completely hassle-free way of arranging trips. Nothing is too much trouble for you – and you certainly deliver your offer of a prompt, professional service. Until the next time I will have no hesitation in recommending you further. Thank you.

Neil MacAllister

… thanks very much for the chocolates and flowers, which were there to greet us on our return from the trip to America. It was excellent and your organisational skills meant that every last detail,l even down to distance from the Airport, and the price of local taxis was spot on. We had a really great time – the people in Nashville were very hospitable, the music in New Orleans was amazing, and the chill out in Miami, was just the job to wind down, before the long journey home. Thanks once again Fiona, for making a once in a lifetime holiday, every bit as special as we hoped it would be.

Mrs P. Robbins – Birmingham

Many thanks for sorting our latest venture. You saved me the time and hassle I would usually have spent sorting out our ski holiday. I will certainly be using you again, and recommending you to all my colleagues, but in the mean time good luck with a simply great service.

Beth Burns

Just to let you know Fiona I have just nominated you for the ‘vows’ awards for your exceptional service with planning and booking our honeymoon. I hope this will help your business, you deserve every success.

Tom and Eileen Murray – Kent

Just a quick note to thank you for arranging our Easter Pilgrimage to Lourdes. This type of weekend break has been really difficult to arrange when I’ve tried to organise it myself in the past. But just giving you our travel and hotel requirements has taken all the hassle away and made it easy to fit this special weekend in with our busy work schedules (and within our budget!). Once again many thanks – I’ll have no hesitation in passing your details to family and friends with the confidence of knowing you will provide them with a first class travel service.
