“John, you said you wanted us to have the best holiday ever — and it has been! We can’t thank you enough.”

I’m John, an Amsterdam-based Travel Counsellor originally from the UK. In my previous life as a corporate HR director, I roamed the world for business and leisure. I’ve had the good fortune to visit more than 80 countries, and I bring my personal experience to bear with every booking I make. If you have a destination in mind, there’s a good chance I’ve been there. Or, if you need help choosing, let me know what you love and we’ll create a custom itinerary together.

As an independent Travel Counsellor, my goal is to build lasting relationships. I pride myself on unrivalled personal service — before, during and after your trip. That means no request is too small and no itinerary too complex. If you don’t come back for more, then I haven’t done my job!

While our relationship will always be one-to-one, I’m backed by the global Travel Counsellors network — one of the world’s leading organisations of travel professionals. That means I can offer the widest range of experiences and operators, your bookings are fully covered by our outstanding financial protection, and I have a network of more than 1800 personal colleagues to call on for first-hand recommendations.

As I work from home, I’m available to chat anytime. Whether it’s a business trip, a weekend break or the holiday of a lifetime, give me a ring or let’s meet for coffee. Let me take the headache, hard work and risk out of your next trip, so all you need do is enjoy!

Mijn klantenervaringen

I've already recommended John to a few friends, and would do so again in a heartbeat. John is that rare individual: one who ACTUALLY listens to everything you say. As a consequence, the trips we've made with him have proceeded flawlessly. In addition, when I had to make an emotionally gruelling, long-haul trip during the pandemic, John went out of his way to keep me informed about the latest Covid regulations that would affect my journeys, and somehow prevented me from spending an absolute fortune for my travels to and from Australia. Of course you want this man on your side to help you organise fun holidays, but hey, he's also amazing to have helping you in a crisis. Can I award 10 stars? Even if the limit is only 5?! Ask this man to help you with your travels! ASAP!

Working with John is always a pleasure for our corporate travel. He is informative, helpful, friendly and full of advice on the best travel options. I trust him to always give the best prices and choices for the travel plan, and he is happy to make recommendations based on his many years of experience. He has a great sense of humour too!

You are definitely recommending my next holiday destination. I has no idea what to expect on my trip you just booked, going on your recommendation, and the hotel was fantastic, the weather awesome, and I did a lot of hiking in beautiful places. All in all just awesome! You are going to organise all my holidays!!

Met Travel Counsellors hoef je je nergens zorgen om te maken, alles wordt voor je geregeld. Ik heb het al aan meerdere mensen aangeraden, het haalt zoveel werk en stress bij je weg! Altijd de beste prijzen en deals, ik ben zeer tevreden! With Travel Counselors you don't have to worry about anything, everything is arranged for you. I have already recommended it to several people, it removes so much work and stress from you! Always the best prices and deals, I am very satisfied!

So grateful that I utilised John's services. I feel much more secure with all my travel plans, and those for my kids this year knowing John has our back should something go amiss. I look forward to a continued relationship with John for my future travel needs.

When you set off on travel, it’s easy to imagine the travel agent is done, but with Travel counsellors, the service continues. In travel disruptions that normally generate stress, we have a helping hand that thinks ahead for us. I am an experienced, prolific and low stress traveller. Our flight to Maldives was delayed by our airline due to technical problem with the plane and missed our connection, but before we even landed my travel counsellor John Ryrie messaged me to inform of next flights, rearranged boat transfers and coordinated the hotels. We could relax with minimal disruption, knowing we were well taken care of. Vacation saved.
