Africa and The Middle East
Hello & thank you for visiting my web page!
My name is Maya and I am based on the West Coast, Matzikama District. I’ve recently moved here & loving life at the beach as well as all the outdoor activities available in this area.
I have enjoyed 28 years of working in the Travel Industry looking after both my leisure & corporate clients. It was something that I had always wanted to do right from the word go. I have had experience working in a travel agency as a consultant & later as a manager and I have also managed my own company for a few years. I began my travel career at an travel agency in Somerset West, and I had gained some more experience in London and travelled throughout Europe, USA, New Zealand, Indonesia etc... I later lived along the beautiful Garden Route in Plettenberg Bay & I returned to the Western Cape where I settled with my family.
I have made many bookings for clients travelling to South Africa & surrounding countries - this is where my German comes in handy! I speak English & Afrikaans fluently, having been born in South Africa.
As a young girl, I lived in Ireland for 2 years & throughout my working career, I have had the opportunity to travel extensively to many interesting places such as Indonesia & New Zealand; USA & Disney World; the Maldives, Mauritius, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain & extensively throughout Namibia & South Africa.
I decided to join Travel Counsellors in March 2010 and I have realised that I couldn't have made a better move! Travel Counsellors are the worldwide market leaders in operating and supporting a network of only the most experienced travel professionals.
Being a Travel Counsellor and being part of a global network does so much more for my travel business, I have access to fantastic technology, great offers (both local and international), and a network base of Travel Counsellors all over the world.
I pride myself in offering outstanding client service. Testament to this is that most of my clients have moved with me over the years and I enjoy the personal relationships that I have developed with them. My clients know that they can reach me at any time during any emergency.
I look forward to hearing from you
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-

I would like to highlight your extraordinary service. I appreciate the care that you took in our favour under these difficult times. The end result will save us a lot of money. I have never experienced such a professional service from a travel agent in such a long time. Thank you very very much Maya! Best Regards Marcel

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for arranging a great itinerary for our amazing holiday. We had such a good time and the places we stayed in were awesome! Kurhula put so much thought and effort into our engagement which really went down well, so thank you for arranging that for us. You clearly have great taste and your work was testament to your great reputation.

Maya is the greatest travel agent that I have had the pleasure to work with over the past 20 years. My family and I have moved to Maya for all our travel requirements since early 2014. She is helpful and goes far beyond the 'extra mile' for all her clients. She is professional and extremely helpful.

We arrived back last night, holiday blues have kicked in... I just wanted to say a massive thanks to you for organising a brilliant honeymoon for us. All our accommodation was lovely and everything ran so smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better holiday and everyone treated us so nicely. You had everything organised to a T and it made us have a very stress-free holiday.

Indien iemand 'n vakansie wil gaan hou, sal ek beslis vir Maya aanbeveel. Haar diens was puik. Dit was die 1ste keer wat ons oorsee gegaan het en dit nogal meestal per trein deur Europa. Ons het baie vrae gevra en goed verander en sy was baie geduldig met ons. Als was perfek bespreek en sy het ons volledige dokumente met alle besprekings en tye gegee van aankoms en vertrek en waar ons moet wees.

It is an absolute pleasure dealing with Maya. She is professional, well-advised and always willing to help. Maya always goes the extra mile and never overlooks the smallest detail. There is never anything that is too much trouble, and you are always guaranteed a pleasant, well-priced trip and booking experience. Thank you.

Maya has been our travel agent for the last 15 years and is an absolute star. To date we have never had anything go wrong with any of our bookings - she goes to endless trouble to find the best package for your trip. Maya does far more than what is required of a travel agent and it’s her personal interest and personal touches that makes her a super star. Thanks Maya for always planning the perfect holiday.

During my business career I travelled extensively and was exposed to a few high profile travel agencies. I believed that I expected high levels of service and when I moved to Somerset West, I tried three different firms in Somerset West and Cape Town without success. I then met Maya and we have always been 100% happy with her service and imagination in optimising our travel. She is the best. Barry Adams

Maya Beutler has been our Travel Counsellors for 8 years. We followed her when she moved to a different agency and then again when she started on her own travel business. Maya is so efficient and has been doing all our bookings, visas, and helps with every detail of our travel arrangements. She is always available and goes the extra mile. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who wishes to have superb service.
