Africa and The Middle East
For the past 13 years I have channelled my passion for travel through to my clients via the retail travel agency which my parents were instrumental in starting in 1982. As the vast majority of my clientele has been leisure travel orientated, I have enjoyed innumerable opportunities to plan all aspects of holiday requirements for a large number of travellers, all with different priorities – from the cultural experiences of the backpacker in the most obscure areas of the world, to the sophisticated pampering on the most exclusive cruise liners, the challenges of finding the most cost-effective airfare combinations, the necessity to equip South African passengers with the relevant visas, providing informed advice on appropriate travel insurance, health requirements and foreign exchange.
I am extremely fortunate to have travelled extensively, which has enabled me to share first hand advice and experiences. Countries I have visited include the U.K., the USA, Australia, South of France, Austria, Indonesia, Singapore, Spain, Greece, Turkey and Zimbabwe.
I have participated in travel agents’ educational visits to Mauritius, Dubai and Zanzibar.
I live in Plettenberg Bay – the jewel in South Africa’s crown!! – Pristine beaches, glorious unpolluted air – not a factory chimney in sight!
It is with great pride that I announce a significant “evolution” in my travel career – I have become a TRAVEL COUNSELLOR, which means that I now have the privilege of operating my business from home, backed by the knowledge and expertise of the World’s number one home-based travel company, TRAVEL COUNSELLORS Pty Ltd, who provide me with all the back office support and technology, including an exclusive ground-breaking dynamic packaging system which allows me to access the best deals within minutes.
This company is driven by contagious enthusiasm, commitment to excellence and the provision of the optimum service levels, backed by a reservoir of knowledge and expertise designed with one purpose – that you (the client) are Number 1 and deserves nothing but the best.
With all these assets at my disposal, I guarantee to provide you with the highest possible level of personal service and to project the ethos and standards of TRAVEL COUNSELLORS into every holiday adventure which I undertake to plan.
I look forward to your support and invite you to call me either on my landline or my cell phone whenever you feel I can be of assistance.
We have just returned from 6 weeks holiday in England which was a great success. All the bookings and air travel arrangements made by Amy worked to perfection. We are most impressed by her kind attention to detail and readiness to look into other options. We strongly recommend her to any one intending to travel -- locally or overseas.

I have no hesitation in recommending Amy Tobin as a Travel Counsellor. She has arranged 3 trips for me to Croatia, Kruger Park and Durban - very satisfactorily! Nothing is too much trouble for her she is first class! Harold Duncan

27 Mar ’09: I winged my way from George to Joburg on 1Time Airlines, having to overnight due to the early departure the following morning. I stayed at the City Lodge OR Tambo & found it an ideal hotel, close to the airport with a shuttle service to and fro, and very attractive accommodation. 28 Mar ’09: 1Time’s direct flight from Johannesburg to Zanzibar makes the journey so comfortable. Arriving in Zanzibar I was struck by the quaintness of the airport. The excessive humidity together with the heat was quite a challenge!...
