Patience made this trip the best ski trip we have ever taken. She absolutely took charge and gave us multiple options for us to consider. It was so freeing having her do all the planning. We have never used a travel agent for our ski trips so we didn’t know what exactly to expect. However, you guys exceeded our highest expectations. .
Jimmy & Brittany Moncrief, Whistler, March 2019 Worked with Patience Harris
We LOVED LOVED our room and view at Secrets! It was perfect!
Thank you so much for planning this trip! It was so organized!!! We didn’t have to think about a thing when it came to where we were supposed to be and when!
Nick & Mary Beth Miller, Secrets Wild Orchid, October 2018 Worked with Sandy Brewer
Oh my goodness the trip was wonderful! I can't even begin to describe how thankful and happy we are that we took this trip! Alaska is just beautiful! We took loads of pictures but as people say, they just don't describe enough of what you experience. And though weather included rain, it doesn't spoil a thing!
Thank you so much for all your help! You were great! We appreciated the cheese tray and the nice dinner on board ship one night. So special! We would highly recommend Princess Cruise Land/Sea for Alaska and your agency! Everything ran so smoothly. Tour guides were so nice, helpful and informative. Didn't expect to learn so much about Alaska! Thanks for all your advice and tips on excursions to take! Ed's favorite was Denali Wilderness Tour and mine was Yukon White Pass Train excursion. (But loved them all!)
Thanks again for helping make this a very special and memorable trip!
Ed & Kathy Bailey, Alaska Princess Cruise, August 2017 Worked with Gina Baumgardner
Our trip was far beyond our expectations. The Fairmont was perfect, the room and views were amazing. The flights were flawless, the ship and crew fantastic. The Jeep ride is highly recommended and Alaska….. you know how wonderful it is. We enjoyed every moment. Thank you for helping make our anniversary perfect!
Kerry & Mary Malone, Alaska Celebrity Cruise, July 2017 Worked with Sandy Brewer
Jason and I had the most marvelous experience on our honeymoon; we were thrilled with all the pre-planning you did that saved us time and hassle. The Honua Kai was beautiful and luxurious and we couldn't have asked for better.
Thank you for your expert planning. I'll definitely recommend you to anybody I know who is traveling, and we hope to plan another vacation with you in the near future.

Audra, I want to thank you for helping me book the anniversary trip of my dreams! UNICO was amazing! We enjoyed Mexico so much! The food was perfect, the resort was beautiful, the excursions were exhilarating! We can't wait to go back! I'm including some pictures of our trip for you to
get an idea of how perfect it actually is! We enjoyed the spa, saw Coba and Tulum, and Chichen-itza.

Bahamas was a blast and Sandals was amazing! Thank you for all your help and an amazing planned trip! You were great! So great that we are already thinking of our one year trip!

We really had the best time together and I was a complete and total diva leaving this place. When I started looking up resorts in Cancun, I was so overwhelmed. So, I contacted Victoria Reisinger (Travel Agent Specialist). I gave her a ridiculous list that I wanted our resort to have. Within no time, she emailed me back 3-5 different resorts that met all of the criteria. We ended up at this resort: Unico 2087, which is brand new and opened in March. Not only did she find our dream resort, but she also gave us an honest opinion and helped us make a decision. She literally did ALL of the footwork: booking the resort, booking plane tickets, booking a private shuttle to and from the airport, sending all of our documents to us in the mail, and answering my million questions-all at no cost. She is THE BEST. We travel a lot and we will never do it by ourselves anymore. I recommend her to anyone who travels. I think this covers most of the questions I have received. For anyone traveling or having trouble, contact Victoria in Chattanooga! She is the sweetest!

We had a wonderful time in Punta Cana…. As with all resorts, I can tell you all the pros and cons but this was one of the TOPS… It rained solid on us for 2 days which is something that NEVER happened but it was OK as several were sunburned so bad that they couldn’t have gotten outta the room anyways… We lathered them in sunscreen but for a few, just didn’t do it’s job… Kids were ordering ROOM SERVICE ( chicken nuggets and french fries at 11 PM) and having a blast…
Our rooms were in the middle of the resort RIGHT TOGETHER….( adjoining) PERFECT !!!!!! WE LOVED THAT…. We all agreed that our room location can make or break a vacation… Couldn’t have been better….
Surprisingly, we stayed in the big pool more that the waterpark…. The waterpark was more for kiddies …
The downside of the resort is that the waterpark & sports center is at ONE END and the pool and water is the other end…. LOTS of walking and waiting on carts…. Never knew at which end our group was.. LOL
The UPSIDE was the swim up pools… THAT was the BOMB !!!! We spent an awful lot of time right outside our rooms … When we were tired of walking……. they jumped right in…... Loved it..
Service was FIRST CLASS and food was great….
All in All~ it was a good trip and worth the $$$… As always, we THANK YOU for all you did to make it smooth…
David and Pam Goode, Nickelodeon Punta Cana, May 2017 Worked with Sandy Brewer
We absolutely loved Jamaica and are ready to go back. We loved how good the service and hospitality was there. We have spoke about our next trip and will be going through you. You made the travel experience a breeze and gave us really good insight. By the way, i didn't think i was going to get Abby away from the dolphins (she wants one as a pet now). She LOVED it. Thanks again for everything you did to make our honeymoon the best trip ever!!
Quade and Abby Cambell, Sandals Ochi Beach, August/September 2016 Worked with Audra Kennedy

Becky, San Francisco and Napa Valley, June 2016 Worked with Gina Baumgardner
Thank you for setting up this trip. New Zealand was our dream vacation exceeding our highest expectations. The trip was fast moving and we traveled by Bus, ferry boat and sight seeing boats and observed New Zealand from top to bottom. New Zealand is a beautiful country with the landscape changing almost at every turn in the road. The people were friendly and welcoming. All our rooms were clean and of high quality. The tour guide and driver were the spark plugs that made the trip come to life, friendly, humorous,and well informed on the history and facts of New Zealand these two hard working men made each day of the trip a success. If anyone wants to truly see the wonders and enchantment of New Zealand tell them to take this 14 day trip.
The air travel was smooth with only one minor delay on the last connection to Little Rock (plane replacement) was right on time. Business class was really great and we both enjoyed the special treatment wonderful food and the chance to lie down for the long trip over and back.
Jan enjoyed her Bucket List trip for our “50th” as did I . Thank you again for this great trip.
Mike and Jam McInerney, Qantas 14 Day New Zealand Highlighter, March 2016 Worked with Sandy Brewer
I've been wanting to tell you how much we loved working with you and also how much we enjoyed this trip. All your recommendations were great.
Our room was great. The weather was great considering all reports were that rain was scheduled this August and September more than normal. The land portion's weather turned colder than normal but that made the autumn colors pop out more. Then a day before we were to do Denali National Park, it snowed 5 inches. The tours were delayed a few hours the next day but we still got the whole 7-8 hour tour. Seeing the animals in the snow (we had flurries the next two days) added a whole new dimension. I just had to rob one of David's coats. Much to our surprise, on the land portion, we met a preacher and his wife who used your same company because his aunt uses you guys. They were from Verona,MS and of course, we had some sweet Christian fellowship. Small World. Thanks again, Gwen Hodges

Thank you so much for everything, we had a wonderful time . . . .the resort was beautiful . . . service was great. Rob was a little hesitant about the trip, but, once he was there, he loved it!! The excursion was so much fun!
Rob and Stacey Wenzler, RIU Punta Cana, May 2015 Worked with Sandy Brewer
We all had a great time on our trip and I just wanted to thank you for all your help. We appreciated the yummy chocolate covered strawberries in our room when we arrive. Everything went perfectly and we now have several thousand photographs to go through! Dan said his "shutter finger" hurt after the day in Glacier Bay. He stayed on the balcony with camera the whole time.
Linda Brooks, Alaskan Princess Cruise, June 2015 Worked with Sandy Brewer
Victoria is amazing! She helped us decide on a honeymoon that suited us and encouraged us to use Contiki. We had a few hiccups at first when our original tour became unavailable but she explained our options and then took care of all the details. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. We went to Italy for twelve days and our guided group experience was incredible! Victoria was available to us throughout our trip for any needs and even came to our rescue when my shuttle coupon and travel book were lost. If you are planning your holiday vacation, adventure extravaganza or a romantic honeymoon you should use this travel agency. 100% satisfied! Love, The Odells
