Kelly is so easy to work with. She is very personable, she answers your questions, explains everything in full, leaves no stone unturned (from 1st time getting passports to explaining insurance, getting the best price and booking with several family members made it easy for us all to be near each other.... Kelly's customer services is a 5 ++ and gets back to you extremely fast. She is a pleasure, and I have recommended her to others and they are just as satisfied with her.

I would definitely recommend Yankee Trails because of Kelly McKiever. Kelly has booked several trips for us. A couple trips were for several cabins and involved changes to accommodate our varied travelers. She always made requested updates to our itinerary in a friendly manner. She is easy to contact by email and very quick to respond.

We did not make it easy for Kelly

Reviewed By rick - Hudson New York | Traveled to
We have booked cruises for a few years with Kelley and she has been extremely helpful but none more than this year. After booking the cruise my wife Donna was diagnosed with the return of cancer and was told she should not cruise. We informed Kelly and she helped get all the refund we were entitled to. A couple of months later the doctors revisited Donna's condition and allowed her to go on the cruise. Our children were very happy as the cruise was a family one and now their mother could go. We called Kelley and room was scarce on the ship at that time, but she made it happen. Trust me this was the short version and at least ten calls were made back and forth. We love Yankee Trails and a lot has to do with professional and accommodating Kelly McKiever is!!

On short notice, Kelly arranged our perfect Alaska land/cruise!!!

Reviewed By MAK - Latham, NY | Traveled to
We decided in July to visit Alaska and Kelly was helpful in planning a last minute land/cruise to Alaska for August! She was able to help me understand the inside passage route and the trip to Denali National Park. She had all the information for us when we just popped in and booked that day! Everything sounded perfect and was perfect. The trip by dome train to Denali was long but very relaxing and interesting due to our guide. The Denali tour did present it's first snow this year but we still were able to enjoy the scenic area. She provided me with prompt emails when days later I would think of something regarding weather, clothing, hotel accommodations, etc. The inner passage was the perfect opportunity to see the glaciers upclose before our port stops. Each city/town was spectaculor. Yankee Trail shuttle early am to/from airport was a great convenience and drivers polite and friendly. I will be checking with Kelly about some future cruises that are listed as she is well informed in guiding us. I think she did a smooth plan !!

Great for groups

Reviewed By Bill - Leesburg, FLorida | Traveled to
Everything went very well with our group of 26. The only improvement to be considered has nothing to do with Kelly per say, but the back up for her when Kelly is not in the office. Somewhat of a gap there. But, when Kelly was directly involved everything went very smooth. Thanks again. Looking forward to the next trip.

she got us through our first cruise

Reviewed By denise - Upstate, new york | Traveled to
Our first cruise. My husband left it all to me. I was a nervous wreck and doing things on the computer is not something i am adept at or comfortable with. Kelly got us thru it all. If not for her, would still be trying to figure out how to print our tickets and would have missed the cruise. Thank you Kelly.
