Laura handled all the details & made our trip memorable!

Reviewed By Sue - Buffalo, NY | Traveled to
These comments are long overdue. As I start to plan our next vacation, my first step is to contact Laura Bender. She has recently helped plan two wonderful trips for our group - San Francisco and an incredible trip to Italy. She coordinated all arrangements for three couples, providing invaluable suggestions that helped make our trip so memorable. I am about to call Laura to plan our next adventure and would highly recommend her services. I am confident that her personal experience and expertise will make our next trip a success!

Handled the details. Fun to work with.

Reviewed By Cori - Orange County | Traveled to
Laura has been so helpful. She helped plan a cruise to Alaska for us and our best friends (total of 9). She also booked a honeymoon trip to Cancun for our son and his wife. It is quite helpful that Laura has been to so many places herself. She is able to give us great recommendations and take the headache out of the planning. Our next trip we plan to go to Scotland and Ireland and we look forward to again working with Laura.

I've used Laura for a trip to Hawaii and Mexico both for family vacations with the kids. She did an outstanding job! She has just wrapped up the plans for a bike trip with an extended family group of 16 to Amsterdam for fall 2017!

Everything was perfect

Reviewed By JR - Orange County Ca | Traveled to
I first thought I would book this particular vacation to Europe on my own. I shopped the internet and thought I had the best deals and the nicest hotels for the money. I thought I should at least confirm with a travel agent. Laura was able to get me better properties and for less money. She also got me international business class flights for about the same as I was paying for coach. I also booked all of my city tours through her and they turned out perfect. She now books all of my travel and I wouldn't consider changing that for anything.

PERFECT TRIP TO ITALY

Reviewed By Cynthia - Orange County | Traveled to
What a difference it made to have Laura help plan our trip to Italy!!! She was so helpful from start to finish. Great suggestions for our itinerary. Knowledgable with personal recommendations for must see sites in Florence, Tuscany and Venice. She spent alot of time helping us select the perfect hotels, transportation and in general made the planning process stress free. We appreciated her follow up during and after the trip to make sure everything met our expectations. Laura is truly passionate about travel and we will definitely use her in the future.

Great idea for a romantic and relaxing honeymoon trip

Reviewed By LisainCoto - Coto de Caza, California | Traveled to
Laura gave me several great suggestions for an anniversary getaway with my husband. Each suggestion was unique and special so it was hard to decide which one but I absolutely loved the place we chose, the Carmel Valley Ranch in Northern California. She listened to what we wanted to do and we were thrilled with her suggestion. Her attention to detail was outstanding. She emailed the management prior to our stay so they wished us a Happy Anniversary the moment we stepped into the lobby. Laura's extra effort ended up in some special upgrades from the resort that we would not have received if we had booked it ourselves. Laura provided great customer service, and had a wealth of connections and ideas. Well done! I will definatly use Laura again for our vacations and business travel.
