I thought I was a "detail-intense" person until Belinda organised my 4 week multiple destination bespoke holiday. None of my ideas were a problem and she also researched some fantastic tours based on my interests which turned out to be great memory makers. Belinda's planning, communication and execution of all travel details and bookings were flawless and she was always on the end of the phone or email/text if I needed to contact her. I highly recommend Ballygelvar Bespoke Tours and Accomodation to anyone and truly believe that Belinda is an asset to her profession.

We highly recommend using Belinda...

Wow. Belinda organised a trip for my friends & I to Waiheke Island for 4 days. Belinda planned every little detail of our trip right from the Ferry crossing to accommodation, transport, cafes, restaurants, & the most gorgeous winery tours & home again.
Belinda took the time to listen to all our requirements that we wanted for our trip. We highly recommend using Belinda for your next tour.

we were thrilled to meet some extremely interesting and successful people

Many thanks to Belinda for organising a wonderful Tour.  We had an overseas guest with us and had some special requests for places we wanted to visit, and Belinda made sure this happened.  Belinda has some great contacts in the “horse world” and we were thrilled to meet some extremely interesting and successful people.  We had a very enjoyable day and our guest was absolutely delighted.

fantastic tour planner for our girls' weekend

Belinda was a fantastic tour planner for our girls' weekend on Waiheke Island. We didn't have to think about a thing as every detail had been taken care of including ferry bookings, accommodation and transport. We were taken to beautiful wineries, dined at amazing restaurants and even tried our hands at archery and clay bird shooting. I would highly recommend Belinda to plan your next stress free holiday in New Zealand.

..provided excellent restaurant and sight seeing tips....

We had the most amazing stay with Belinda and Peter. The setting is absolutely stunning and their hospitality is world-class with comfortable en-suite rooms. Belinda arranged a riding lesson for our daughter, provided excellent restaurant and sight seeing tips, and along with Peter cooked us fabulous meals. I cannot recommend Ballygelvar high enough!

I had an amazing holiday...

I had an amazing holiday with a wide range of activities that had been arranged by Belinda. Highlight day for me was the 'horsey' day with thoroughbreds, standardbreds, stallions, mares and foals, and polo ponies. Having a ride on Cruz is something that will stay with me forever. There was genuine and warm acceptance from everyone in the family in perfect accommodation. Thank you 💜

Very highly recommended

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Ballygelvar. Belinda and Pete are exceptional hosts who always go the extra mile to enhance your stay. The accommodation is charming, beautifully furnished and comfortable. It is very accessible to all that Cambridge offers. Good on site parking. Cambridge is right in the centre of all things equestrian and Belinda took us on a very informative tour of a world class stud. Very highly recommended

Highlight of my trip!

Belinda gave us an amazing tour of many horse places in Cambridge including Cambridge Raceway, trotters, pacers, stud horses, show jumpers and polo ponies. She is very knowledgeable and introduced us to some incredible horse people. Highlight of my trip!

An Excellent Host

An excellent host in a beautiful modern house with warm wood fire - we stayed in the Paris cozy bedroom. We had great breakfast included and optional dinner well valued. We enjoyed taking our dog for walks around the fully fenced farmland and very easy to get to the centre of Cambridge. Highly recommended.
