Unforgettable Hawaiian Honeymoons and Vacations

I have a love affair with the Hawaiian islands.  I've spent quite a bit of time there.  My services extend beyond finding you the most appropriate hotels for your Hawaii vacation.  I'm able to arrange your sightseeing with the top operators in Hawaii during your precious moments in paradise.

Because Hawaii isn't just a two hour hop on a plane, I'll advise you on the most comfortable aircraft and seating for your journey at economical fares.

Once you depart, I'm on call with personalized concierge services 24/7 supported by my contacts in the Hawaiian islands.

Gay Travel

Never have there been more exciting travel options available for the gay and lesbian traveler.  These choices extend beyond traditional ocean party cruises to chartered all-gay river sailings in the world's top bucket list destinations.

I've vetted every operator I represent.  My price is their price on the cruises and tours on offer. Plus you'll benefit from personalized planning services.

I also remain current on gay family travel options.  I'm up on both where to take children, and where to avoid them! 

 

My phone lines are open for consultations from Noon until 9pm daily EST Why not call me for a friendly no obligation chat at (215) 462-2222 ?

While I'm backed by the country's largest seller of leisure travel, I'm under absolutely no sales quota requirements.  I wouldn't run my personalized travel consultancy any other way.

Our PHENOMENAL Hawaiian Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Katie Kealey - Philadelphia, PA | Traveled to Honolulu, Oahu ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Rainbow Voyages recently helped us plan our honeymoon in Hawaii and they did a phenomenal job!! Paul Ferdinand took into consideration our time constraint, budget and the hotel we wanted to find us a package that fit what we asked for. He was professional, friendly, helpful, and prompt. He was on top of time lines for payment, sent us information on places to eat and things to do in Honolulu, and made sure all of the travel information was clear. He made himself available to us during our honeymoon in case we had any issues with our flight or hotel or if we wanted him to book anything while we were there. Paul went above and beyond as our travel agent! We had a perfect honeymoon on Oah'u and will be using Rainbow Voyages for future trips without a doubt!! Paul was very knowledgeable and we HIGHLY recommend using Rainbow Voyages for planning your vacation!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Perfect Honeymoon

Reviewed By Jim & Jill - Philadelphia | Traveled to Hawaii Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
If you want someone who knows Hawaii, Paul’s your man. In short, Paul spoiled us. We recommend him enthusiastically. There are so many touches Paul added to our trip: from champagne, flowers and candy awaiting us in our rooms, to alerting us to flight delays and adjusting restaurant reservations and excursion arrangements during our trip. Paul guided us through every step of planning our trip. He knew where to go and where to avoid. He knew which hotels would suit us; all the restaurants to recommend; all the excursions to choose; and what to watch out for. For example, Paul knew which helicopter tour to take and, more importantly, to request “first class” seats on the helicopter to get up front seats. We thought riding a bike down Haleakala would be fun. As it turned out, Paul’s recommendation to book a van up and back was spot on for us. And, Paul called in advance and confirmed each excursion we booked. Moreover, he knew about a flight delay and moved a conflicting reservation.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

I really enjoyed working with you planning your honeymoon and sightseeing excursions in Maui and Kauai. I'm glad you enjoyed my "concierge service" throughout your trip. Mahalo!
