What our clients are saying....
Big Shout out to Lisa for helping with the planning of our Aussie/New Zealand trip. We started in Sydney with a VIP tour of the Taronga Zoo which overlooks the harbor and I would recommend to EVERYONE. We had backstage access to animals & even toured the kitchen where the zoo keepers make up food for the animals. Very interesting and we would have never found that VIP tour on our own! Also we did the Bridge Climb, Opera House Tour and of course the Blue Mountains, which were stunning. All wonderful experiences. On to Cairns & Port Douglas for our visit to the Reef and the Kuranda Rainforest. We stayed at the Peppers Beach Club in Port Douglas, a beautiful resort hotel. It was so nice we wish we would have spent more time at the hotel. The first day there, we went to the rainforest, which we didn't realize was basically back in Cannes along an hour long winding road. In retrospect, we maybe should have just stayed in Cairns or just eliminated the rainforest, which I am not sure I would want to do. Next on to Melbourne and a day out to Phillip Island to see the small penguins. What a great day with stops along the way including a trout farm, gardens & wine tastings. That was one of our favorite tours Lisa put together for us. We also visited the Melbourne Museum which was very educational, particularly the section explaining the history of the Aborigine People. Then we flew to Auckland where we visited Kelly Tarlton's aquarium, visited the Sky Tower and started our excursion to Rotorua. We stayed at the Regent, a boutique hotel which Lisa may want to check out if she hasn't already and add to her list. All along the way we built in some down days because we are of the age and mindset of not having to do everything. In Rotorua we enjoyed an evening with the Maori people at the Tamaki Village . Our final day consisted of a very awesome tour of the Hobbiton movie set, where the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies were filmed. All the tour guides and drivers were first class and we couldn't have asked for a better group of people. All the hotels were great except The Swanson in Melbourne. Location was great but it's a little tired. We were moved to another room on the second day so it worked out. We felt safe the entire trip and everything seems very well organized. If you are thinking about visiting this magnificent part of the world get with Lisa & let her know your interests. She can make your dreams come true!

Australia & New Zealand Retirement Trip
Punta Cana/Barcelo was BEYOND Amazing. It EXCEEDED my expectations by like 500%
The resort it self was beautiful. It was SOOOOOOO Clean. [I am a germaphobe and I was more comfortable in the whole place than I am at work sometimes!]
The room was a great size - and even though we all shared a room, due to it being 2 stories, we had enough privacy [or at least it was enough for us]
The people there and the staff were SO sweet and pleasant. They truly cared about their clients and took care of us. Many of them even found us on the last day to give us a hug goodbye [I actually teared up with a few of the people because they became like a short term family! haha]
The food, most days, was pretty good. A pretty good variety for each meal. - I would say that if you get clients who are food "snobs" - I am not sure this would be a place for them [but we did not try ALL of the restaurants, so maybe the other restaurants were different]
My parents loved the Pirate water park - I think they had more fun than some of the kids that were in there HAHA.
You did an AMAZING job picking this place for me and convincing me to come to DR.
I do have to say, this was the MOST amazing and memorable Birthday/vacation/etc I have had so far in the 30 years I have been alive
Thank you SOOOOOOO much for making my 30th Birthday Wonderful and Unforgettable.

Marriott Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Beach Resort, St. Thomas
Thank you so much for arranging our most recent vacation to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Grand Porta Real was a wonderful resort; with twin resorts, one for families and one for adults only.
People looking for a great vacation have a choice where to stay. The resort was very clean, people very friendly, service very good. The main restaurants were excellent. Two blocks from the resort on a friendly 5th Ave type street were many shops and restaurants with local flare. The streets had many trees for shade and the street was people only no vehicles as you shopped. I would recommend this resort to many. Thanks again for putting this vacation package together for us!

Thank you so very much for the Happy Cruising cake you sent us for dinner on the cruise. We were just talking about possibly ordering a cake , as some of us were celebrating wedding anniversaries, when the cake showed up. We were so surprised. The hostess came to the table looking for Donnie and Lawrence, and then returned with a cake. That was so very sweet of you. And , now the whole group knows why Randy, my son in law and Larry and I wanted your help booking this cruise. You are a very special travel agent, and we so much appreciate all you did for our entire group.
Royal Caribbean Serenade of the Seas
The trip was amazing!!!!!!
We had so much fun in beautiful Sydney. The Blue Mountains Bush walk was so fun. The driver served us tea on the way there at a lookout point, we did the HARD!!!! 4.5 hike. Oh my! And I thought Bootcamp prepared me for that! WOW!
Then we rode the incline railway car back to the top. THEN the driver took us to the Featherdale zoo where I got all teary eyed when getting my picture taken with a Koala! That made Sammy laugh. No idea why I teared up! What sweet sweet animals. We pet tons of kangaroo too!....
Every single flight, bus transfer, car pick up etc was on time. It all went so smoothly. Like clock work! You should totally continue to book people with Quicksilver for the reef. They were so professional and so helpful. ... Uluru was amazing!!!! The whole trip was amazing.

The trip was great. Everything went well, no issues with different tours, etc....
Susan got to hold a Koala at the Australian Zoo…thank you for everything, I could not have done this without you!

Thank you so much for arranging the Secrets Wild Orchid Resort in Jamaica for our vacation getaway! The resort was perfect, one of the best! Our suite had a great view of the Caribbean. The staff in every area of responsibility was excellent. I don't know how you arranged the weather to be 87 in the daytime and 77 at night, but I am sure you had a lot to do with that as well, when you made the reservations for us. We would certainly recommend this resort to others.
Thank you so much!

Secrets Wild Orchid, Montego Bay
I just wanted to say great trip. We loved the Wild Orchid and the preferred club. Beach was fantastic. Food was good. The MoBay Club worked out great. Especially on arrival. Always a little disoriented when you arrive. Have someone to just walk you through was very nice and quick.
Thanks taking care of us,
Secrets Wild Orchid, Montego Bay
Still in my vacation haze! It was perfect in every sense. The flights were all on time. Our private transfer was easy to find. The ride from the airport was about 20 minutes. The check in was easy. We were on the beach by 2:30 drinking a cold cocktail….The resort was perfect. The grounds were clean and well-manicured. Each wing of the hotel had its own butler and concierge right in your individual wing. They were literally there 24/7 and within a 30 second walk or phone call. They took us to our room and explained everything. We never had to wait long for a drink on the beach. …Our room was nice and well kept. Our swim out was private and we could just sit in our private poolside chairs and have a drink. The staff was unbelievable; nice, polite, carried Deb's plate back to the table and there was always someone to pull her chair out for her, which took the pressure off me…..
I give it a 100 out of 100. I could not have pulled this off without your help and friendship to keep our secret. … Iberostar was great…. the best advice that I ever received. I would strongly suggest this resort to any couple that wants to wind down, enjoy each other's company, have fun, and leave all of their worries at home.
It was perfect Lisa!

The Royal Cancun, Cancun
Hey Lisa! We had an absolute blast and everything was PERFECT! From the travel, to the shuttle service to and from the airport, to the beautiful resort and the beautiful city, we had the time of our lives. The Melia was beautiful and had great food. We spent a lot of time there just lounging on the pool and beach. One of my favorite parts was having breakfast everyday down at the restaurant overlooking the beach. We even saw some whales as we ate. The service was excellent throughout and I would recommend it to anyone going there. We spent some time in Cabo and took an extended tour that brought us to a blown glass factory and tequila factory, then on a whale watching/snorkeling boat tour. We ended up seeing some whales and took full advantage of the open bar concept on the boat as well. We also took a cab to San Jose on the last day to see what it had to offer. It's much different than Cabo as it's definitely more laid back and to my knowledge, a more authentic Mexican city. We did some shopping there and had a delicious meal at Don Sanchez. All in all it was a perfect honeymoon and we truly thank you for your help. You made it so easy for us and I'll recommend you to anyone.
