The best experience!

Gina is outstanding! She takes the necessary time to understand the experience I am looking for, plans accordingly with excellent options, and ultimately ensures all aspects of the trip exceed expectations.

A trip like no other

Reviewed By Jana - Texas | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
My family has taken many vacations and work trips under the planning of Gina Porter at Far and Away -they have all been wonderful. Her suggestions of where to go, what to see and what to do have been spot on. Also, Gina has given us so many 'insights' that other travelers may not know-which enhanced our trips, such as since my passion is collecting handbags, Gina arranged for me to visit a designer handbag factory while traveling abroad. Her personal touches are great. Our family would be lost without her knowledgeable planning.

A wonderful anniversary trip

Reviewed By Betsy - Darien, CT | Traveled to Jumby Bay Island ~ Antigua & Barbuda ~ Caribbean
Gina is very knowledgeable, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. She considers all details. She often knows and anticipates her clients' needs before they do- at least that has been our experience. We have worked with Gina for anniversary trips, family trips and girls' weekends. She has handled each trip with expertise! Love, love her!

Wonderful family vacation!

Reviewed By Isabel - Dallas, TX | Traveled to Isla Mujeres ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
My family worked with Gina to plan a fabulous beach vacation to Isla Mujeres over New Year's Eve. The tiny island was enchanting and fun to explore. With a large family (mom, dad and four kids over the age of 19) there were plenty of activities to keep us entertained. We relaxed on the beach, cooled off in our rental home pool, walked straight down the rocks of our rental home to snorkle, swam with dolphins, danced in the town square and much more. Since the island is small, golf carts are used as the main form of transportation. The restaurants (and margaritas!) were so great that we asked one of the dinner spots for their cookbook. The rental home was large enough for everyone to have their own space and the living areas/kitchen made it easy to cook while enjoying together time. All in all, Gina made our first family vacation in a long time a trip we will never forget!

Best Couples Trip

Reviewed By Marnie - San Antonio | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Gina has planned family trips as well as girls' weekend trips and couples trips both within the states and abroad. She has never disappointed. We have traveled on a budget as well as luxuriously. She has graciously accommodated our requests which have not always been easy. Gina is happy to make suggestions as to venues and will plan to the last detail if desired. She has been spot on with her recommendations as to tours, guides, and restaurants,as well as flexibility for 'down time' which we have to be encouraged to take when attempting to 'fit it all in!' Gina always does a wrap up call when we return to hear the peaks and pits of the trip. I appreciate this as it helps her take the best of her trips for future recommendations. I recommend Gina without reservation!

London was the best trip I've e ear taken

Reviewed By Jbro - Dallas, Texas | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
Our family has enlisted Gina as our travel professional for years-two honeymoons for our children, many family vacations, many work/groups trips and several intimate vacations for just my husband and me. They've all been great. My most favorite thing about Gina's bookings are the 'secret' treasures she books for us. Things that the masses know nothing about. I particularly loved our trip to London and staying at The Goring-just magical.
We really allow Gina to guide us on what to do while on a trip-because she's proven to be so proficient in her travel knowledge. I feel blessed to have her help us.

Work and Pleasure

Reviewed By Will - darien, ct | Traveled to Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
Actually our trip covered much of the Far East, ending in Australia. Finding a good business fair package is always difficult, especially with meeting time requirements. Gina did an excellent job of putting together the fair packages to give us the flexibility we needed at a better cost than from standard airline packages. She was sensitive to our hotel needs and all of our rooms were upgraded and first class. Overall the trip went through without a hitch and we got our business done with time to spare for favorite personal activities.

The best honeymoon imaginable!

Reviewed By Amanda - Dallas, Texas | Traveled to St. Barthelemy ~ Caribbean
Gina planned our honeymoon to St. Barth's and it was BEYOND incredible! She researched all available hotels on the island and narrowed it down to three perfect options (across three different price ranges) - we are officially obsessed with our hotel, Chevel Blanc!

She booked flights (with connections / transfers perfectly coordinated), arranged our rental car, made dinner reservations and even planned a private dinner on the beach one evening. All of these details were housed on her easy-to-navigate mobile app, which made it completely stress free for us as we traveled.

Gina was a true advisor, helping ensure we made the best use of our time on the island. She knew the best restaurants, shopping, activities, and more! It would've been impossible to research these details on our own.

We are already talking about our next trip and will absolutely book through Gina and Far & Away Travel!

Christmas Vacation Tradition Continues!

Reviewed By lmkennedy - Frisco, TX | Traveled to Mexico
Gina is amazing! We have been working with her for almost 10 years. She is responsible for some of our most special family memories. Our most recent experience with Gina was planning our family Christmas trip to Myakoba. We were beyond thankful for the time away and that our Christmas vacation tradition could continue, in spite of CV19.
