Please could you extend my really big Thank You to Pauline and Nick for helping me at the weekend when I was taken ill.  To say I was in shock at being taken ill so quickly, was an understatement.  I am so grateful that they were there to help and even though I felt so terrible, I still got to go up and look at The View!  I will return again another time when I can enjoy it better…..  I was supposed to be in London today for work, but I just couldn’t face it….

Anyway, I went straight to the doctors on Monday and they are sending me off for a scan, so could you let Pauline know.  She was so genuinely concerned and I felt totally ridiculous! 

Many thanks again for what otherwise was a great day.

Hi Lesley,

Thanks for a great trip to Bruges, last weekend. Lynn and I really enjoyed ourselves. You always work so hard to look after everyone. The hotel (KAROS) was brilliant (especially the bar prices). Good crowd of people, on the tour, too.

Hi Lesley,

Totally unrelated to these trips but it reminded me to give you some feedback on the London trip 03.11.12.

Firstly let me say how wonderful Pauline is, she is like a breath of fresh air. So welcoming and friendly and couldn’t be more helpful.

Nick our Hammond’s driver was also fab, really good fun and very professional. Lovely coach and a very good driver. Excellent coach company you use.

Overall great value for money and we had a blast. I would definitely use your company again.

Thanks for the email. We all had a fab time with you in Garda and I have done nothing but sing your praises at work this week so quite a few people that I know are now perusing your website.

On behalf of Parseq I’d like to thank LJ Leisure for the trip to London on 8th September.  It was yet another well organised trip.  The hotel was in my opinion the best one we have stayed at through LJ Leisure. It’s in a great location, the breakfast was superb and the hotel staff were very helpful.  I was very surprised to learn that it was Ben’s first tour. He did a great job! As did Gary, they worked together well to make sure everything ran smoothly

Hi Lesley

Hi Lesley,
               Can I say how much we all enjoyed the recent Constable Country Trip. The itinerary was perfect, the hotel super, everyone said how nice their rooms were and how delicious the meals were. We loved visiting Cambridge on the way down and Colchester on the second day.
The lovely friendly tour guide took us round the wonderful Constable highlights. She was very informative which made the trip really worthwhile . Jim our coach driver was excellent (we all loved him) and on the last day went to great lengths to make sure we visited the places we wanted on the Suffolk coast and ensured we had plenty of time to take it all in.
All in all Lesley everybody was very complementary about the whole trip and we all look forward to travelling with you again.

Hi Lesley

Thanks very much for this – my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Gypsy. The show was brilliant and the trip was such good value – one of my friends had seen it before, and he paid £95.00 each for seats which weren’t nearly as good as ours, and we got a wonderful, well organised journey included !



Written By: Jill Staniforth

Just a note to let you know we had a lovely day yesterday, apart from Miranda Hart not being on stage!

Love your new guy, Chris.  Felt safe and secure with him.  He's pleasant company.  I listened to him sorting out people's queries, unflappable and kind with a ready smile. 

He took Jack's humour with good heart and was pleased when he could report back to Jack that 'Lesley said she'll throw you in the water in Croatia'!

Looking forward to Croatia.

Hello Lesley

Just to say we had a lovely day yesterday on the Emmerdale tour.  We met Liz and joined their coach party who were all very welcoming. It was hard to believe more people didn’t book, which was their loss.

Thanks for organising it

 Hi Lesley,                 5 Stars awarded.                 

Thank you so much for organising such a wonderful trip. The care & attention you personally put into making sure we are all satisfied & happy is commendable. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the trip. Greenwich has so much to offer. The Sunborn Yacht is amazing and to top it all the wonderful backstage tour followed by afternoon tea made the whole weekend super special. Thank you again and we look forward to our next trip.   

Kath & Neil.

 We have just returned from the Gin Weekend based in Salisbury with LJ Leisure and very enjoyable it was.  The visit to the Gin distillery was very interesting and the hotel was good too.

Just about the right amount of time spent in Winchester and Oxford as well.  Have used this travel company many times and always had a good time.  There will be many more holidays with LJ Leisure in the future.

 I've just had another lovely holiday with LJ Travel.
We stayed at the Palace Hotel in Paignton Devon.
The hotel was excellent and was a good base to visit other resorts. Pauline was our guide and was always helpful and good fun. I would recommend LJ Travel.

Good Afternoon Jess 


Thank you so much for contacting us.  We had a lovely weekend in London thank you, although the weather was not great we still managed to have a wonderful time.  

I would just like to say our tour guide Lynn was absolutely brilliant and made the journey there and back full of fun.  She is an absolute credit to have on the team.   

A little disappointing that we could not do the cable car but this was due to weather conditions and again did not impact on our time in London. 


Also with regards to the hotel, please pass on to Lesley that this accommodation was outstanding and I thought it was better than the accommodation on the boat.  We will definitely be booking with LJ Leisure again and thank you for a lovely weekend. 


Merry Christmas to you all 

regards  Lee and Cherrie Nixon

Thanks again for a wonderful trip. Lynn was a lovely tour guide & made sure we were all cared for & checked we all had something planned for both Greenwich & Covent Garden. We love the Sunborn Yacht & the cable car experience was wonderful. Thanks again, Kath x

 What a super day was had by myself and the people who did the Shard and Brown's.


Susan and i were admitted to the Shard at 1.45  without any problem, so leaving at 3.15 ,we had a good look round on both the 68th and 72nd floors.

The "view from the loo" on the 68, is rather fine!!

Amazing piece of architecture...and all our questions were answered with pleasure by the people working there,  who obviously,enjoy their jobs immensely,  who wouldn't?

We then had a leisurely walk along the river bank,to Browns .

What a treat to see the £225M yacht, moored alongside MHSBelfast, after reading about it in The Mail!!

Tower Bridge was actually raised, last Saturday, to let the Yacht"A" ,pass through....


The two other ladies who were from the Oddfellows  found it a little hard work walking, (i think), but they didn't grumble!! Fiona was there for them.

We enjoyed relaxing outside,with our GnT,or white wine or Prosecco, with our lovely sandwiches and cakes...

Tell people to take a tupperware box, we couldn't eat them all. 

Fiona and the drivers were " First Class!

A very enjoyable day , thank you 

Regards Brenda
