Testimonials

Travel + Leisure feature top travel specialist for UK and Ireland, Nicola Butler

“Nicola’s clients, often ultra-high-net-worth travellers, rely on her to plan one-of-a-kind experiences — many of which are too exclusive to divulge. Luckily for travellers, she’s just as comfortable planning a modest family vacation or a quiet country getaway. Trends Butler is noticing in travel? Ireland, always popular, is growing even more so. Stately manor hotels are opening up in quieter parts of England and clients are more and more interested in sustainability, including donations to local organizations all along the route.”
