Welcome to Travel Whispers

Travel Whispers is not a travel company website you will not find any holidays for sale here, only free travel advice and recommendations. The site was set up as a result of suggestions by the site author’s family and friends and is operated purely as a hobby. The website consists of a series of profiles of holiday destinations and each profile includes four elements: Sightseeing: the major tourist sites in a particular location along with some lesser known sites to visit; Hotels: mainly inexpensive but offering good value for money (although the odd 4-star hotel will appear); Restaurants: also generally inexpensive but with an emphasis on good food and a cosy atmosphere; Photos: lots of photos on each page and a photo gallery at the bottom to give you a flavour of the place. Prior to this website being set up, when requested I passed on this sort of information to family and friends by word of mouth, hence my use of the word “whispers” in referring to tourist attractions and my personal choice of hotels and restaurants. I have used two basic 5-point rating scales in the profiles, one to offer guidance on cost (using a symbol) and another to offer guidance on quality (using a symbol). The key to these rating scales is given below. As time passes, hotels and restaurants change or even close, so if you find any of the information on the site to be out of date I would really appreciate it if you took the time to email me using the email form on the Contact page. I will then be more than happy to update the information. I hope that you enjoy browsing the site and find the information useful.
Key to Symbols A real budget choice Cheap and cheerful Average price for the budget traveller If you want to splash out a bit Only if you have a lottery win! A low-quality experience Slightly disappointing Everything the budget traveller would expect A very enjoyable experience Meets every expectation             
