Amazing 25th Anniversary Celebration & Family Vaca

Reviewed By MDE - Durham, NC | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Our 25th wedding anniversary celebration/first family vacation we've had in 6 years was so much fun! It was such a pleasure working with Dawna Jones. She made planning for our cruise so easy because she took care of all of the details. Dawna was always prompt in replying to any questions that I had about our trip. I will definitely book our next trip through Dawna and will highly recommend her to anyone who needs a travel agent in the future.

Will bend over backwards for you!

Reviewed By TK - Chapel Hill, NC | Traveled to
Dawna literally bent over backwards to assist us in planning our trip to Aruba. Working with 5 people who want totally different things is a hassle but Dawna never made us feel like we were asking for too much or that we were being difficult. She priced, repriced, and compared multiple hotels and did as much as she could to help us save money. When I had an incident that caused last minute changes to my trip, Dawna was available by phone and called up the hotel and airport transfer company to make changes to accommodate my new needs. This trip was phenomenal because she planned it and I literally felt so at ease working with her. I was against using travel agents previously because of the enormous fees, the hassle of waiting for them to get back to you and just the annoying hassle. Dawna changed my view on all of that. She offered a flexible payment plan option, included a thorough detailed report about or booking and saved us much more many than if I booked alone. She was phenomenal and I will be contacting her about my next trip!

The only way to go!

Reviewed By BD - New Jersey | Traveled to
Dawna's attention to not only details, but our overall experience made this one of the best trips domestic and abroad bar none! Her excellent service and professionalism made booking our trip with her a breeze. She also always goes above and beyond to ensure we are comfortable and being prepared including confirming your flight and resort details and even letting you know if your flight has been delayed....the shock of receiving a text saying - "just checking on you guys, i saw your flight was delayed. Let me know if you need anything"...fully confirmed that she's the real deal! We wouldn't travel any other way!

Dawna is an excellent travel agent. While planning my trip to Hawaii, she was able to provide me with several package options to choose from.

No one to travel with; NO PROBLEM

Reviewed By SJH - DC Metro Area | Traveled to
Prior to going to Cancun with 4 Simplicity Sake's travel group, New Stamps Travel Group, I had worked with Dawna on two other trips. She continues to amaze me. The creation of New Stamps Travel Group is taking her skills and services to the next level. Knowing that I can go away, BY MYSELF, but still be surround by professional adults and see the world is priceless. I literally just tell Dawna that I am in and she takes over from there. I HIGHLY recommend using her for all your travel needs and even more strongly recommend joining the New Stamps Travel Group. Next year's trip is already decided...PANAMA 2017.

Dawna Made Our Belize Getaway a Breeze!

Reviewed By C. Thomas - Atlanta, GA | Traveled to
Dawna was extremely easy to work with especially since we were very indecisive on our trip destination. She was very helpful and resourceful in helping us to narrow down our location based on what we wanted to experience on our trip. Once we decided on Belize, Dawna presented us with a few great packages to consider. The best experience was how smooth the day of travel went from airport check-in, all shuttles, transfers, and hotel check-in. Her services were all very professional. We were able to not focus on the details of planning the trip, and had the luxury of looking forward to and enjoying our vacation...as the title said, she really made everything a Breeze!!! We definitely plan to use her services again in the future!

Costa Rica Made Effortless

Reviewed By Tyshawn - Philadelphia, PA | Traveled to
Dawn handled accommodations for our group of 7 to visit Costa Rica. Our hotel was situated in a great area. It was, in my opinion, exactly what I foresaw for the trip. Great beach. All inclusive. She gave us a list of activities and contact info for the companies but we chose to handle it on our own. Check-In seemed to go smoothly once the hotel realized we didn't have to give them any further documentation. Our rooms received a nice upgrade as well as welcome baskets full of fruit. Overall, amazing trip with great people. No stress at all. Highly recommended.

Dawna "Mrs Details" Jones

Reviewed By S.LadyBugOfficial - Bay Area, CA | Traveled to
Ms. Jones is literally the last travel agent you will ever have to call. Her attention to detail and natural ability to coordinate a full traveling experience is a value in its self. I recently attended a destination wedding in South America, where Ms. jones was challengeGd with the task of booking travel for a group of 30+ individuals from all over the U.S. Territory. As a result, our trip was hands down the best traveling experience EVER! I would recommend Ms. Jones for your next excursions abroad or wherever!

Dawna was so quick with planning our Hawaiian vacation. My husband was looking to plan a trip, I called Dawna told her what my husband was looking for and within seconds she managed to get us exactly what we wanted. Oceanview room and a direct flight.

She made planning a trip as easy as 1, 2, 3!!!

Reviewed By Chantel - Buffalo, NY | Traveled to
Dawna was so very nice, professional, knowledgeable and helpful from start to finish while planning trip to Jamaica for my boyfriend and I. She made sure it was as simple as 1, 2, 3! Literally, all I had to do was wake up and get on the plane! The process was so simple! I told her where I wanted to go and within 2 days she emailed me different quotes of prices, dates and types of resorts that fit my boyfriend and my needs. Within 2 wks of my trip she emailed me a detailed itinerary that had flight and shuttle information to the resort from the airport once we arrived and our returning information! Everything was worry and stress free!!! While I was in Jamaica my boyfriend proposed to me :-D so we will now be using Dawna for our honeymoon and anniversary travels and any other travels from here on out! To sum up Dawna and the job she did in one word... AMAZING!!!!

Great! Helpful! Awesome!

Reviewed By GW - NY | Traveled to
My girlfriends and I were looking for a fun, carefree getaway to Mexico and had little knowledge of what we wanted. Dawna made the entire process so easy and managed every detail of the trip. From booking flights and hotel, to managing transportation. She ensured we had our itinerary on time and then sent a great thank you gift for using her services. I still feel the gift should have gone the other way around. I will definitely be reaching out for my next trip.
