About Us

We’ve got a long history with adventure. Mr Hayes and Mr Jarvis set us on our very own journey back in 1952, and ever since then we’ve been tailor-making travels with the same passion and pride as our fervent founders.

Our origins lie in the joy of visiting a new place – demonstrated no more aptly than by our namesakes. Their inspiration for bespoke, detailed and truly personal holidays came from their own adventures and experiences of the world – and so the signature Hayes & Jarvis service was born.

Today, our Destination Specialists embody the same spirit. They love to travel of course, but they are also passionate about using that knowledge to help create holidays that are personal to each of our customers.
