My wife is a massive Formula 1 fan, for her 50th birthday this year I spoke with Kevin (about a year before the race) to see if he could put a trip to Monaco together for us. He asked me lots of questions to establish exactly what she’d prefer, ie hospitality in a room with champagne food etc, or seats close to the action.
He made some recommendations and the resulting package was phenomenal, I honestly believe it could not have been better. He took care of all the mundane, but essential items, flights, hotel rooms, transport to and from the airport and from the hotel to the race track. On the Saturday for all the practice sessions and qualifying we were seated in Grandstand T opposite the pits, directly across from Mercedes, we were able to see all the teams in action, implementing, changing their strategies, based on their competitors results, it was nail biting stuff.
We even have a picture of Lewis Hamilton’s neck with chain and diamond ear stud! For the race itself on the Sunday Kevin surpassed even this. We were opposite the Casino in Grandstand B at Casino Square. The hairs on my neck and arms stood up as we entered ‘the arena’ to take our seats and admire our view of the impending race. There are NO better seats for this Grand Prix than where we were, three rows from the front, drinking in the atmosphere, the noise, the smell, it was unbelievable. My wife said it was the best thing that I could have done for her, it was her dream to go there and Kevin made it possible and he did it with unbelievable style.
After we came back I spoke to Kevin to thank him for such a fantastic time, he then proceeded to tell me all the research he’d done on website and racing forums to put together the best package he could for us. I cannot praise Kevin and his company Ember Travel highly enough, if you’re looking for a holiday, special, luxurious, bespoke to you, this is the company you need to speak to. Once again Kevin, thanks very much for an unbelievable experience
