Another Super, Perfectly Planned Trip

Reviewed By Carlos - Frederic, WI | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Jacqie has been our travel agent for several years now. She does a wonderful job during the whole process of planning a trip . She always has several options that are in our price range and the destination we want to go. She then assists us in booking the type of room we want, helping us secure lodging and parking at the airport, getting our seats assigned, and securing private transfers when we arrive at our destination. She does it all, and it has always worked out perfectly.

Amazing Trip Arranged By An Amazing Travel Agent!

Reviewed By Shana - Blue River, Wisconsin | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Jacqie is amazing at what she does by finding the perfect vacation within your travel budget. She was able to find wonderful deals and many options to fit our needs. We have thoroughly enjoyed every vacation she has helped plan for us. Her services make planning easy and stress free. Definitely worth the modest fee she charges. Our most recent trip to Alaska on a 7 day Norwegian Cruise surpassed our wildest expectations and our memories will last a lifetime. We strongly recommend going through Jacqie for any future travel plans. She understands our family's specific needs and perfectly matches what we are looking for each time. We look forward to booking our next vacation and adventure with her!

Reviewed By Dustyrose - Ladysmith, WI | Traveled to St. Maarten ~ St. Martin ~ Caribbean
Jacqie did a great job in the planning of our vacation. This was the first island vacation we have taken and I had some specific things I wanted. I gave Jacqie the list and let her go to work. She found exactly what I wanted and the experience was more than I anticipated!!! I couldn't have asked for a better location and resort. I will definitely call her for next years vacation.

Graduation trip to Punta Cana

Reviewed By 4rlfells - Rice Lake | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Jacqie was very informative, responsive, friendly, and prepared. From the initial planning stages of picking the perfect destination and family friendly resort that fit into our budget, to booking the trip and reserving us a motel room the evening before in the twin cites, Jacqie thought of all the details.

Every phase of the trip was well planned and Jacqie went out of her way to keep us informed as dates approached.

Because of Jacqie's attention to detail, there were no surprises during our trip and we will definitely work with her for our next get away!

A trip of a lifetime!!

Reviewed By Kelley - Rice Lake, WI | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe
Jacqie helped make our trip to Spain stress-free. It was so nice to have all the planning done and an itinerary to follow. My husband and I are not frequent travelers, so it can be a little nerve-wracking when you travel...and are not sure where to go or what to do. Jacqie had it all organized for us and we really appreciated it. Jacqie goes the extra mile to make sure we have looked into all of the details of our trip and we are thankful for her expertise!

One of the nicest places we have been.

Reviewed By Sheila - Glidden, WI | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
Jacqie was very helpful and efficient in getting our trip planned on short notice. Everything was professionally handled and went very smoothly from finding the resort, making all of the reservations, and giving us hints for when we arrived that were very helpful.

The resort was very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was good, and plentiful. Entertainment was good and quite diverse.

The beach was beautiful, but we did have sting rays and sea snakes in the breaking waves.

Very enjoyable vacation over all.

Another Great Trip with Jacqie

Reviewed By Teresa - Rice Lake, WI | Traveled to Mexico
This is the second family trip we have booked with Jacqie. She was great at listening to what we were looking for in a trip. She then asked some questions to help gather information for us. She provided us with some options and let us know what she thought we would like the most based on what we had discussed. She was spot on for both vacations! Jacqie was always available for questions and responded quickly with answers. She gave us wonderful tips that made each vacation very smooth. I have recommended Jacqie to friends and will continue to do so. She does an amazing job!

Big Trouble Avoided

Big Trouble Avoided !
Two days prior to our departure for a fishing trip to Costa Rica Jacquie contacted us to alert us as to a severe winter storm approaching the Eastern US which might impact our flight connections through Charlotte NC. At her advise we switched our flight plans to go through Phoenix which helped us avoid serious delays in our trip.
This was done completely on her own initiative, just simply looking out for us. We never consider letting anyone else make our travel arrangements.

Stress Relief - Top Notch Vacation

Reviewed By Roscoe - Rice Lake, Wisconsin | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Jacqie found us the perfect All-Inclusive Resort at the El Dorado Royale in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. That place is unbelievable! Seven days at a 4-Star Resort which in our opinion should be a 5-Star Resort. From the room, to the food, to the pools and incredible friendly service, the El Dorado Royale delivered, just like Jacqie! Under almost last minute pressure, Jacqie was able to put it all together in almost no time. Which was an enormous relief for Barb and me, as we had spent days and days wasted at the computer trying to do it all by ourselves. It was very frustrating to both of us. We added on another wrinkle for her as we wanted to spend 3 days on Isla Mujeres, a small gem of an island just off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. She found a great hotel in the Privilege Aluxes, which in my opinion is in the perfect location, it is close to the ferry docks, right next to the best beach on the island and walking distance to all of the restaurants, bars & shopping. Thanks, Roscoe & Barb
