A small selection of our recently organised groups...
Lexis Nexis in Cuba
A wonderful long weekend in Havana, filled with rum, Salsa dancing, history and culture. With a fascinating history, colourful street life and faded elegance Cuba is the perfect destination for an inspirational trip. Staying in Havana’s best hotel, the 5* Parque Central overlooking the city’s Central Park, our group were perfectly placed to soak up the vibrant atmosphere of this lively city.
We arranged all of the essential activities on a visit to Havana, including a visit to see world-famous Cuban cigars rolled in Havana’s Partagas tobacco factory and a jeep safari to Pinar del Rio province where the country’s most famous exports – coffee and tobacco – are grown. In addition, the Club Free Spirit difference and expert local knowledge meant that the group enjoyed unique experiences including Salsa dancing classes, dinner at Ernest Hemingway’s old haunt La Bodeguita del Medio, evenings out in Havana’s best nightclubs favoured by the locals and accompanied by our team of Cuban dancers, a full day fishing expedition on private yachts with open bar and a farewell party.
Rentokil Hygiene in Sun City, South Africa
Five unforgettable days and nights in South Africa’s entertainment Mecca, situated on the edge of the Pilansberg National Park. With a choice of four luxury hotels – our group chose the elegant Cascades -, two world class golf courses, an enormous themed water park and one of South Africa’s best game reserves within close proximity, Sun City is a truly special location with quality guaranteed. The adjacent Pilansberg National Park is home to the Big Five and twice-daily game drives furnish a wonderful opportunity to witness lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo and rhino in their natural environment.
Our group enjoyed early morning and early evening game drives along with a hot air balloon safari, gala dinners, a casino evening and a traditional African bush dinner under the stars. Our attention to detail and unique touches meant that everyone was presented with memorable souvenirs of their stay, including not only local gifts but also a beautifully presented photograph album filled with shots taken by our own photographer. In addition, we included a guided tour of the fascinating city of Johannesburg, offering an important insight into South Africa’s turbulent history outside of the glitz and glamour of one-in-a-kind Sun City.
Unilever in Barcelona
A short break with a difference in one of Europe's most cosmopolitan cities, with a buzzing Latin spirit, centuries of history, funky architecture and showy, avante garde people – an extremely memorable trip to Spain’s fashionable capital of cool. With a second office in Spain, our expert local knowledge ensures that this group maximised its time in Barcelona, with access to the most exciting cultural attractions, best restaurants and evening entertainment.
Our group began their two-night break, staying in the 4* Hotel Duques de Bergara, in style with a Spanish Champagne reception on arrival followed by a fun Salsa dance lesson with our local dancers. Dinner in the atmospheric Gothic Quarter followed by dancing until late meant a few sore heads the next morning! Nevertheless, the group was up bright and early for a choice of activities including cookery, a balloon ride over the city, Salsa dancing, a bicycle ride around the Gothic Quarter and an art-lovers tour of the city’s best museums and galleries. A gala dinner rounded off the last evening and full advantage was taken of the late flight on the last day with a lunchtime Tapas cruise and sightseeing around the Old Port.
