Amazing Caribbean Workcation Getaway!!
We knew we wanted to get out of the US and enjoy warm weather. We were thinking about Aruba, Barbados, and a few other locations. Paula took the time to really understand our needs and wants (warm weather, good internet, nice beaches, low chance of COVID exposure, good health care system, in case one of us did contract COVID). Paula helped to secure lodging that was within our budget that met our needs. She also helped with planning activities while we were there. We gave her some ideas of what we wanted to do and she helped make suggestions from reputable companies and handled all of the bookings. It was nice to not have to worry about scouring Tripadvisor and other internet sites trying to find good reviews on tours, restaurants, etc. We had a great trip - did not want to come back. I will certainly use Paula again for future trips
Thanks so much for your kind words. It's a sign of a great trip when you don't want to leave! I look forward to arranging more vacations or workcations for you.

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.
