Paula has always listened to our wants and needs and provided great advice to help us with our goals. She has always been thorough and prompt in providing and explaining our travel documents, and has gone out of her way to notify the travel venues about things like our wedding anniversary. She is also very good about remembering our travel preferences from trip to trip, even if several years in between.

A trip I'll never forget!

Reviewed By Colleen - Tacoma, WA | Traveled to Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
It was a pleasure working with Paula. She's very easy to talk to, has great tips/ suggestions and really knows her stuff. Just be careful what you ask for because she'll definitely try and deliver! She managed to give me everything I had asked for and more. She was always very responsive and checked in to make sure things were going smoothly. I especially appreciate how open she was to feedback about what I loved about my trip or what it could have been better. I normally plan everything myself, but trusted Paula to guide me in the expanse that is Australia and she didn't let me down!

Thank you so much Colleen for your kind words! It was a delight to work with you on just the right custom Australia itinerary. I look forward to helping you with future travels.

Easiest and most exciting vacation ever!

Reviewed By Alyssum - Bellingham | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
The 2 vacations that Paula helped plan for us were absolutely wonderful and we look forward to working with her again soon! She takes the time to first understand what kind of vacation you're hoping for, then uses her experience to create an itinerary from start to finish, thinking of details that I never would have. Then, she calls after you're home to hear about your trip and learn from your experience and share in your manors so she can help make your next trip even better!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Paula Demmer responded:
Alyssum, Thank you so much for your kind words! It's truly a pleasure working with you. And I'm glad you had such a wonderful time on your Caribbean cruise and all-inclusive honeymoon. Thank you, Paula

Customer Testimonials

Cook Islands vacation post Queensland conference

After receiving an invitation to speak in Brisbane, we asked Paula Demmer to help us plan our trip through the South Pacific. She helped us select based on considerations of attraction, weather, and cost between the South Island of NZ, Tahiti and the Cook Islands. She asked us a number of questions via email and phone to get a good sense of what we liked. Then, she suggested two destinations, Rarotonga and Aitutaki, and mapped out a plan for visiting them that included two lovely places to stay, suggested tours and activities. We enjoyed the Aitutaki lagoon tour with food, ukulele music and out islands. The bungalows at Sea Change and Pacific Resort Aitutaki that Paula arranged for us offered the most beautiful views my wife and I can recall ever having seen in a resort: 180 degrees of tranquil lagoon with the surf crashing dramatically on the surrounding reef! We definitely recommend Paula Demmer to plan a trip to the South Pacific; she did a fantastic job! Five stars!

Incredible Barcelona to Venice Cruise & Excursions

I have to tell you that all the arrangements that you made for my family have been giant hits. I so appreciate all your help and no matter where we live you will always remain our go to person for all things travel. The Capri tour was incredible! Barry said that Cindy and Mom raved about their experience. He also said that the Barcelona tour was outstanding, so much so that the next day as they had a tour in France as a cruise excursion that it paled in comparison. He has sung your praises a number of times and I wanted you to know.
