A TRAVEL company based in Keswick has been crowned best small tour operator to the Iberian Peninsula and islands in the prestigious British Travel Awards 2017 for the second year running.

Archipelago Choice specialises in organising tailor-made activity holidays to the Azores, Cape Verde, Madeira, São Tomé and Príncipe and mainland Portugal.

Director Sarah Bennett said: “It’s very exciting to receive this award because it reflects the quality of service we provide to the people from all over the world who travel with us to the islands every year.”

Her husband and fellow director Ian Coates added: “It is a very prestigious travel award, voted for by our amazing clients. For a small company like us, it is recognition that we are doing the right things.”

British Travel Awards chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “Competition was fierce this year with more companies entering than ever before, but ultimately it is the travelling public who decide the winners by voting for the travel companies they consider the best in the business.”

Archipelago Choice has been operating since 1998 and specialises in organising tailor-made activity holidays to all nine islands, offering 140 handpicked places to stay.
