We really wanted a stress free honeymoon and that's exactly what you gave us!

Karen B - (trip to The Bahamas)

We returned from our honeymoon yesterday and I really wanted to drop you a brief message thanking you SO very much for everything!

The honeymoon was absolutely perfect:  the resort was amazing, the food was delicious, the staff was very friendly etc.  The shuttle you arranged for us from the airport to the resort and back again was SO helpful and easy!  We really wanted a stress free honeymoon and that's exactly what you gave us!

We would definitely recommend the Riu Palace Paradise Island resort to others.

Thanks again Laura, I'm sure we'll be in touch for future vacations!

Gary - (trip to Azores Portugal)

Car rental was good, no issues, hotel was excellent!  The staff and the quality of the hotel was excellent and we would love to go back to this place when the temperature is slightly warmer.  It was wetter than normal but we packed up every day with rain gear and headed out for some sort of sanctuary and most days found an area of remission from rainfall and beautiful scenery, hot sprints, good food etc.  We had one spectacular day of weather and and had a marvelous hike around Sete Cidades and a wonderful lunch in the village.  Whale watching on the last day of our trip we saw 7 sperm whales and two pods of dolphins which was cool.  Thanks very much for the trip, it was wonderful and we would love to go back.  Thank you for always being the adventurous travel agent, we appreciate it!

Caloura Resort - March Break 2013

The martini bar was our favourite hangout!

Chris C - (trip to Mexico)

We had a great trip and enjoyed Celebrity Cruise Line.  The weather wasn't great but we made the best of it.  Based on the ships that we've traveled on with Princess and Celebrity, we would say that service, food, entertainment etc. are equal.  We liked the pool area much more with Princess, seemed to be more entertainment and debarkation was easier.  We liked the room layout better on Celebrity and the easy layout of the ship.  The drink package is a big bonus even if you had to pay for it since it covered bottled water, tea, coffee, wine etc.  The martini bar was our favourite hangout!  Embarkation was nice since they let you on the ship before the rooms were ready so you could have lunch, drink, etc.  Debarkation was very very slow.  We will plan our next cruise for January 2014!

We had the most exciting and wonderful trip!

CJ M - (trip to Hawaii USA)

Trafalgar Tour to Hawaii - 14 days

We had the most exciting and wonderful trip!  The accommodations were excellent and we were well taken care of the the Trafalgar Trip Director and all of our needs were taken care of.  I really do not have any criticisms regarding this trip except we would have liked to stay longer.  We are already planning our next trip and have contacted Heather!  She did a great job of seeing that everything went well.  Thank you for your dedicated service!

Thanks again for your great suggestions!

Julie D - (trip to Curacao)

Just wanted to let you know we loved Curacao!!  The resort was great.  The staff was unbelievable.  One woman put it well "They just don't know can't or won't here!"  The snorkeling right from the resort's beach was amazing.  We went everyday and never tired of the scenery!  Thanks again for your great suggestions.  I fulfilled a life long dream of swimming with the dolphins and the dolphin academy was just a 10 minute walk from our resort.  We met people who were volunteering there and the last night we met the director at dinner.  It was awesome!!  Thanks again!

It truly was a wonderful holiday with many great memories to have.

Carol B - (trip to Jamaica)

The first plane ride for the kids and it was so much more than we could ever have expected.  Next our ride from Montego to Gran Bahia - oh such a lovely ride along the sea and through the mountains to see the lush and small towns to get a perfect eye view and a neat experience driving on the opposite side of the road and their words "you Canadians drive on the right side of the road, but we Jamaican's drive on the correct side of the road!"

Now the Gran Bahia, I don't know what to say, but perfect!  Grounds and buildings just gorgeous, pool area so attractive with the pool weaving from one end of the resort to the other.  Many trees throughout the grounds, flowering shrubs, sculptures and the porch that wraps basically the whole building where you can sit and enjoy a meal, so lovely if you don't want to eat inside the restaurants.  The lovely, clean pool....one thing we found was no one bugged you to get involved with activities, you were welcome to join in at certain times of the day at the one end or you could just lay back and relax at the other.  The two swim up bars were so nice and you sure didn't have to wait very long to get your drink, as they had lots of staff to help you with your orders.  The cleanliness of the whole resort was something I have never seen before, not a piece of garbage around.  No bugs to be found anywhere!  The staff were so hard working and were the best I have ever met.  The food was beyond words - the two buffets so full of "everything" you could ever imagine and we ate there a lot because the timing was so convenient and you would never be bored since they changed the menu all the time.  The a la cartes were tremendous and we enjoyed taking advantage of a couple of these too.

Weather was perfect.  Most mornings a little rain, but the sun would come out by 8 am, very warm but always a breeze.  Just perfect.

We couldn't believe the Jamacian airport, of how large it was, airconditioned and all!

A complaint - it wasn't long enough!!!  We all talked that 9/10 days would be perfect for another time, 7 days was just not enough!

Thanks again Monica for all your help and guidance especially since it was such short notice.  It truly was a wonderful holiday with many great memories to have.  I am sure hoping we can do it again, I will be sure to contact you since you gave us superb travel guidance.  Having you prebook our plane seats was sure a plus and I would recommend having this done for sure!  AWESOME!  WONDERFUL!

Wow, what a great place!

Bill W - (trip to Honduras)

First time coming back from a vacation that I thought I could go back right away.  Wonderful staff and entertainment crew. Great beds and very comfortable. Air went out once and immediately repaired. Front desk very helpful. Excellent a la carte meal and party on the beach was great. So great to be able to walk along beach safely.  Wonderful surprise to find English first language of the people.  Had a great tour of the island with a stop at Media Luna for lunch and realized how lucky we were to be at Henry Morgan.  Pool was wonderful and clean. There were always chairs.  You could walk and snorkel at the end of the beach.  No need for a tour.  Water taxis always available.  Great shops at west end and along the beach both ways of Henry Morgan.  People very proud of their island and working hard to keep it beautiful.  Weather was perfect and I couldn’t have a better time.  My food was good, enjoyed it.  Sometimes felt good to relax in air-conditioned dining room.  Wow what a great place!

Thanks for a wonderful holiday Monica!

Jeltje C - (trip to Varadero Cuba)

We had a great time, no complaints, beach was gorgeous, resort was a little older but spotless and the staff were so friendly.  We thought the food was very good.  We would recommend this resort to anyone, we met so many friendly people from all over.  Lovely place.  Thanks for the wonderful holiday Monica!
