Wonderful family trip taken with friends!

Joy is so thoughtful when it comes to helping her clients make their travel decisions; she knows their tastes, likely choice of activities and where they might find the most value in both destinations and cost.

Fabulous Week Full of Laughter in Puerto Vallarta

Reviewed By The Moores - West Bloomfield, MI | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico

Ron and I had an absolutely wonderful trip. We had a great time getting to know several couples and, of course, thoroughly enjoyed spending time with our good friends Lou and Mary Kay Jacobs. I can't remember when I've laughed so much. Neither of us is a Michigan State graduate but were warmly welcomed by the very friendly participants.

This was our first time staying in an all-inclusive hotel. Yes, it seems to cost more at first. But, we feel we got excellent value for money and will look for that option in the future. The restaurants were exceptional.

The hotel was excellent and reminded me of many "5 star" hotels we've stayed in in India and other locales. We have travelled a lot and have lived abroad but were a bit cautious about Mexico...but have been pleasantly surprised.

It was so nice to have you actively involved with the tour. I know every detail was seen to with care, so thank you! Well done!

Best Indian Road Trip

Reviewed By Kristen - Houston, Texas | Traveled to Rajasthan ~ India ~ Central Asia
Joy and her team have put together two exceptional trips for my husband and I. We went on safari in southern Africa last year and travelled by car through northwest India this fall. Joy's first-hand knowledge about these regions was invaluable. She came up with a number of itineraries that incorporated both our specific areas of interest and also other destinations that were fabulous, but with which we were previously unfamiliar. We love to travel but loathe large group tours and tours where you only get off the bus to see large monuments. Joy came up with excellent bespoke private and semi-private tours for us in Africa and India within our specified budget. The local outfitters she worked with had super attention to detail and the logistics of airport transfers, transfers by light plane onto dirt runways in the bush, and daily pick-ups of local guides on both trips went off without a hitch. We highly recommend Joy and her team.

Another amazing trip!

Reviewed By Drew - Tallahassee, FL | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
We've planned many trips with Joy and Classic Travel. Each and every time we are thankful we did. Her attention to detail is amazing and she asks all the right questions to make sure we get the trip we are hoping for. Our recent trip to Punta Cana was no exception. We are looking forward to planning our next vacation with Joy!

Eishens Away

Reviewed By Joe E - Charlotte | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
We had a great time on the family odyssey to Alaska.

Joy and Jill helped us plan a great trip with the recommendations for each port.

The cruise was wonderful, probably the favorite excursions were the Helicopter flights to the Mendenhall Glacier for ice climbing in Juneau and the flight around Denali to see the elusive mountain.

The return trip from Denali on the Wilderness Express was the way to travel on land.

Enoying Italy

Reviewed By Lynella - Lansing, MI | Traveled to Lucca ~ Italy ~ Europe
I have been working with Joy and her staff for many years and my trips have always been excellent. This current trip was, with one slight exception that probably was unavoidable, was no different. I have three trips coming up that I booked using Classic Travel and I expect they will be as enjoyable as in the past.
