Service rating : Excellent service from Fleetway, with superb support by e-mail and (when asked for only) by telephone.
All the separate parts of the package worked brilliantly and the local agents abroad were outstandling and worked together seamlessly.
I will happily use this company in the future and have already recommended Fleetway to friends.
Product : The island of Lipari is lovely and the town itself very pretty. The views from the accommodation were fabulous - it's a pity there's no facility to upload photographs.
Villa Enrica is towards the northern end of the town and is absolutely gorgeous. The standard of the rooms excellent - a room for two was a huge living room, bedroom with an emperor sized bed and built in storage and a large shower room. Two terraces with tables and chairs, one South facing one facing West. Aircon efficient.
People with mobility issues must make sure that they make this clear when booking - our room was near the pool, which is 50m up a steep hill from the Reception area.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were leisurely. If, like us, you go half-board then the evening meal is served and the Chimera restaurant, which is a ten minute walk away, although the Villa Enrica will transfer you by minibus. The standard of food here was very high indeed, with fresh, local produce beautifully presented. I'd recommend the squid.

Service rating : We were very happy with the service provided by Fleetway and had a great week at Knossos Beach Bungalows. Our only comment would be why were our flights booked to Chania rather than Heraklion? Our original dates were to Heraklion and we did change the dates before booking but do not feel we were told about the change of airport which necessitates a three and a half hour coach trip dropping other people off along the way. The return was better as it was just the two of us in a minibus and so was quicker. We had booked our very early morning flight so that we could enjoy an extra three to four hours at Knossos Beach Bungalows. We did thoroughly enjoy our stay and would recommend Fleetway Travel.
Product : Wonderful week. Lovely bungalows, clean, well designed and laid out with privacy when we needed it. Great choice of food in main restaurant, Swell restaurant fantastic. Renie massage great, Maria Pilates fantastic. Room 143 recommended. Check that you are flying into Heraklion rather than Chania to avoid a long coach journey.

With 45 UNESCO Heritage sites, including the medieval fortress Alhambra and its adjacent gardens, Generalife, as well as the monumental complex of Alcazar and cathedral of Seville, you will never be too far away from Spain’s magnificent past. If you find yourself near Seville or Malaga around Easter, don’t miss the annual processions known as the Semana Santa. This dazzling spectacle has taken place for over 500 years and sees large crowds parading through the streets under the rhythm of lively, local music. For more modern experiences, explore the works of the architect Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona. The towering, unfinished cathedral La Sagrada Familia is undoubtedly his most famous work, but it’s also worth visiting the surreal house Casa Batlló, or relaxing in the sunny Park Güell. In Madrid, visit the Prado Museum, before heading next door to the lesser known Thyssen Museum and the Reina Sofia to feast your eyes on masterpieces from all over the world.
Once you have taken in the sites and the sun, it’s time to experience world-renowned Spanish food. While Paella and tapas are absolute musts and are found throughout the country, local delicacies are not to be missed. Try the Majorcan spicy Sobrassada sausage, Escudella soup in Barcelona or bite into crispy fried seafood along the Costa del Sol. For the adventurous among us, orejas (pig’s ears), crestas de gallo (rooster’s comb) and callos (tripe) are authentic recipes ready to intrigue your senses.
Life unfolds at its own pace in Spain, and when the sun sets over the ocean or mountains, people flock to bars and restaurants. Join them with a glass of wine in hand, and experience the colourful architectural nooks, friendly faces and delectable food that make Spain a truly unforgettable experience.
Each region in Spain is fiercely proud of its local identity and culture and regardless of where you find yourself in this vast and fascinating country, you’ll quickly discover that one of the cornerstones in every regional self-image is the local food. We’ve collected (and sampled) the five following dishes, yet these are just a few examples of the great variety of dishes you’ll find in Spain.
Spending an extended weekend in Iceland means making sure you pack in all the things worth seeing and doing here. Don't fret, though, we've kindly compiled a useful list that you are free to follow to make sure you get the full experience of this wonderful Viking island.
Whether you are staying on the mainland, or even on one of the many islands themselves, you can easily travel to and between some of the more remote islands that will give you a glimpse of a more serene part of the Mediterranean, away from the tourists and the developed seafronts.
