We had the absolute BEST time!! And we had the MOST amazing room!! We were RIGHT on the beach!!! I think your email did us a favor!!
The absolute BEST part of the resort was it was super secluded. The kids loved seeing wild monkeys, iguanas, raccoons, and all kinds of wild life just running around. The resort itself is SUPER clean and the food was hands down the best out of any resort we’ve been to!! It was a good bit larger than some of the other resorts we’ve been to, but the entire place was just incredible. The beach was nice and well kept too!!!
The absolute worst part of the resort is it was super secluded! Ha!! The excursions we did were 2 hours one way!!! However it was enjoyable to see the lay of the land and the kids honestly didn’t seem to be bothered by it. We did some awesome zip lining, horseback riding, and visited one of the hot springs for a dip and a mud bath!
I see they are opening a dreams in Curacao and I’m thinking that may be our next destination!!! If you see any promotions come along, send them my way!! As always, thanks for a seamless vacation!
Our family cruise group had a terrific experience on NCL’s Breakaway ship thought Europe. It was a wonderful trip and you were wonderful to work with.
Cindy Erickson has been our travel agent for seven years for many international trips. She is knowledgeable, thorough, and prompt. We are currently booked for three more international trips with her.
We booked last Feb for an 11-day Caribbean cruise and friends wanted to join us. All we did was give them Cindy’s phone number and she coordinated.
Currently, we are in Alaska and having a great time. Have already seen moose and took a helicopter to the top of the glacier to walk around.
I do not recommend people lightly. I strongly recommend Cindy.
My wife and I are old, but traveling keeps you young!
The Breathless resort was absolutely beautiful! The beach was pristine and the water was gorgeous!! The food and drinks were awesome too. The people of Punta Cana and the staff at the resort were a delight!! We have ZERO complaints and would absolutely go back. The resort was very upbeat and had lots going on. ….the only negative is the long travel times to get there!
We really enjoyed the cruise and we fell in love with Alaska. We would have loved to spend more time there.
Thank you very much for organizing this amazing family-vacation for us.
Rebecca Arkins came highly recommended to us as we began planning our honeymoon. I’m so glad we chose to work with Becca because she made planning our 12-day Europe trip a breeze! Not only is she very well traveled herself, she is an exceptional listener, taking all our hopes into consideration, advising a plan, and making adjustments to work within our budget. For context, we visited Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. Becca helped coordinate all transportation (flights, trains, private transfers), accommodations, excursions, and restaurant recommendations/reservations. I had never worked with a travel advisor in the past but can assure you that we’ll be working with Becca again in the future. Thank you for making our honeymoon an unforgettable experience from start to finish. We can never thank you enough!
Just wanted to send a thank you for assisting us in our travel to South Africa. We had an incredible trip. We got everything in we had planned, (wine country, cape tour, got in the cage to see the great whites, climbed Table Mountain, and of course the safari). The accommodations on the safari were amazing. The staff was so nice, tent was luxurious, and food was delicious!
Thanks again for all of your help! We keep sharing our stories with family and friends!
We appreciate your booking our Scandinavia/Russia Cruise ~ the ports of call were wonderful and culturally enriching. The mini-suite you chose for us had more than ample space with a beautifully angled balcony … the tray of canapés you sent welcomed us warmly aboard the Regal Princess ~ a BIG thank you!
We were blessed with good weather and health throughout the cruise!
LOTS of great memories!!! Thank you!
Alaska’s Inside Passage aboard the Celebrity Solstice
We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, but I had major back surgery in March and was not sure about making our trip.
We cannot say enough about the Celebrity staff and them accommodating me. I was using a walker for this trip and asked for special needs. Upon arrival at the dock for departure, we checked in at the curbside area for assistance. They had my name on a list and had a wheel chair ready for me to transport me on board. They stayed with us through security and delivered us to our stateroom.
The accommodations, food, beverage service and the ship were exceptional. We have been on other cruise lines, but we feel Celebrity knocked it out of the park. The entire staff was friendly and willing to help me anyway they could.
I wanted to thank you for your efforts in making this a memorable trip and making the necessary accommodations required for me to be able to go on the trip. I would recommend Celebrity Lines anytime. Compared to other cruises, they were much more efficient; they had the system down.
Kathy and I had a wonderful trip to a Antarctica, and we want to thank you again for all your help and guidance during the planning. The trip was a great adventure, and we truly enjoyed ourselves.
Quark did a great job. They were attentive, organized, and experienced. I would recommend them, and I would travel with them again.
Crossing between the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula was a bit rough. We got sea sickness patches prescribed by our doctor before leaving, and I would recommend this. On-board the ship, meals were very good – small-ship style, buffets for breakfast and lunch and a dinner service with three meal choices. The 120 passengers were skewed a bit to the younger end. Those are penguins behind us!
Our first trip to Italy was amazing! Had a rough year and this was just the vacation that we needed. Thanks to Rebecca Arkins, and the Viking Travel team, for their recommendation and an absolutely wonderful tour director. All provided my husband and I the service in making our trip memorable, fun and easy … looking forward to our next adventure.
My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Italy. We wanted to make it special with a vow renewal and our entire family! There were 9 of us, including 2 small grand children (ages 4 and 6). Laura, at Viking, made this trip incredibly special! Every place and tour she picked had all of us in aww and not wanting to leave! She put great thought into everything we did to include us all. My husband and I are already talking about our next visit and for sure will go through Viking and Laura again!!
The entire Trach clan want to thank you for organizing an amazing trip to Spain for us!!! It was absolutely perfect from the time we landed until we were back at the airport on our way home. The excursions were the best and the lodging arrangement at the beach truly an awesome experience!
It far exceeded my expectations, which were really high! We will never forget the time we spent together which, as you know, is really special as your kids get older! Thank you again for the memories!!
I didn’t know such a place existed like Le Blanc here in Cancun. The food! The drinks! The spa! The service! My mom and I find ourselves WOWed at least 5 times a DAY. It’s amazing if a place can WOW ya once a trip…let alone 5 times a day. This place truly is amazing.
Laura, Thank you so much again for the arrangements. Mom’s 90th birthday trip was fantastic!
I attended the recent trip to Israel led by Marge Santos. I have traveled the world both with guided tours and with family members on our own. Marge and her team did an outstanding job planning and coordinating the trip, from the itinerary to hotels to meals. Her low key guidance and leadership made the pilgrimage most enjoyable. Her patience and easy manner were appreciated.
I am so grateful I had the privilege to travel with Marge and look forward to more travel with her in the future.
Sherry and I and our group of eleven loved our National Geographic G-Adventures 2 week trip to Costa Rica. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to enjoy the outdoors and people of Costa Rica.
Our CEO, Deinor Alfaro was fantastic! He always reviewed the next day with us – times – transportation – what to expect. – tours – tour options. He also arranged for the group to do an optional dinner out in every town. All transportation arrived promptly and all of our guides were exceptional.
Tortuguero – Remote but very comfortable. We saw many different birds, including toucans, lizards, caimans, a sloth and monkeys.
La Fortuna – We loved our tours – We got to immerse ourselves in the culture.
Monteverde – An adventure in itself. The people are passionate about protecting the environment in Costa Rica.
Manual Antonio – Our hotel Villas Lirio was very nice! Our tour to Manual Antonio National Park was exceptional. Our guide look photos and let us look through his high powered scope.
So many great memories!
