Chloe Goolden

Chloe is a travel marketer and globe-trotting enthusiast, and with her natural gene pool of English, Irish and Italian heritage, travel is in her blood. Her parents were keen travellers, so growing up she had some fantastic travel experiences. Some of her most invaluable experiences and precious memories come from these early trips which took her extensively across Europe, Southern Africa and North America; the deafening immense roar of the Victoria Falls, the intangible northern lights fluttering above Tromso, looking over the earth’s precipice on the edge of the Grand Canyon… Later in life, Chloe planned a six months expedition which took her across the globe; from the wild and barren landscapes of South America, to the verdant jungles of Southeast Asia.

These fabulous travelling opportunities, combined with her hunger to learn about foreign cultures, customs, art and cuisine inspired Chloe to work in the travel industry. After a few years with a luxury tour operator, she joined Ampersand in 2015, starting with an epic three-week trip around Burma. She has since travelled to Sri Lanka, falling in love with the relaxed way of life and chic boutique hotels, and more recently, she has returned from a whirlwind trip to Madhya Pradesh in central India, which completely stole her heart.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
