About Us

“Hold your breath, make a wish count to three. .Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination. .We’ll begin with a spin travelling in the world of my creation. .What we’ll see will defy explanation”. .

 

. . from the classic Gene Wilder song in 1971 movie Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, these lyrics inspire us to make imagined holidays and experiences a reality, adding our own unique ‘spin’ to familiar and new destinations.

From escorted holidays and cruises in Europe by rail or air, to Monaco Historic Grand Prix, to long haul destinations such as Vietnam and Cambodia, to nostalgic and exclusive party breaks in the UK, our aim is providing fun and relaxation for the over 40s generation.

We have grown in partnership with several national newspapers and magazines – Daily Mail, Daily Express, Times, Sun, Mirror, Radio Times, Prima, Choice and more – that featured our holidays in their range of Reader Travel Offers and thousands of their readers have enjoyed travelling with us. This is a privileged position for us to be in as they put their reputation on the line by endorsing us. You’ll see the newspaper’s name blazoned across the top of the offer, and ours in the small print at the bottom, that’s why we’re not a household name after 21 years in business.

All our holidays are fully bonded and protected against financial loss through our ABTA and ATOL bond, so you can book with confidence as your money is safe. Not all holiday companies can provide this guarantee, but we are pleased to say that peace of mind is part of the package with every aspect of your holiday managed by us – something you don’t get with D.I.Y travel.

Join us for some fun as soon as you can.

Perry & Karen and all the team at GN Holidays & Voyages
