Plan your perfect holiday with Thomas Ricketts
"Exceptional customer service by Thom which led me to book an expensive holiday immediately, something I was not going to do! I have received complimentary snorkel kits with a personalised message...absolutely perfect and a wonderful surprise. SUPERB customer service"
Thomas' taste for travel started at the age of 17 when he travelled to Australia by himself. He has been in the travel industry since then. His favourite way of travelling is by cruise as you get to visit so many destinations on one trip. Tom started in Kuoni at the Cambridge store and is now based in Welwyn Garden City
Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
Hamilton Island in Australia. Situated on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef where this is nothing but beautiful beaches, amazing crystal clear waters and the only thing you have to worry about is where you're going snorkelling tomorrow.
What's your oddest travel moment?
Skiing inside the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai and looking out of the window to a whopping 48ﾰc desert!
What are your suitcase essentials?
Camera for those moments you just need to catch! iPad for those moments when you just need to replay it! Kindle because you never know when the weather will turn against you! And finally sun cream because you want to tan!
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
While I was in Egypt I took a camel ride out into the Sahara Desert during sunset. Watching the sun come down over the vast emptiness, remembering how peaceful it was and then watching the stars shining bright in the sky!
Where's next on your wishlist?
Everywhere! My list is forever growing but at the top is Vietnam and Cambodia to see the temples of Angkor and to visit Ho Chi Minh City and its amazing underground tunnels!
