The Easiest Vacation of a Lifetime

Reviewed By Lauren - Nesconset, NY | Traveled to
My dream vacation ever since I had kids was Beaches Turks and Caicos. Allison helped make that dream come true this past May. She worked everyday to try and find the best fit for our family ex. best time of year, pricing, accommodations. The only work I had to do was make sure everyone in my family had their passports. The travel itself went smoothly and the resort was amazing. Hands down the best vacation I have ever been on. I cannot wait to go back. When we arrived home, Allison followed up with me to check how our trip went. We love working with her so much we had her take of our Disney trip for this November. I usually book Disney on my own, but seeing how professional and helpful Allison was, I chose to have her book it for us. Again, so easy. She took care of all the details and even had the Pixie Dust Fairy take care of our dining reservations. How awesome! I am so excited and cannot wait for Disney. I would highly recommend Allison to anyone and everyone looking to book travel.

Allison knows EVERYTHING about Disney!!!

Reviewed By Jen - Westchester, NY | Traveled to
Working with Allison to plan both of our Disney trips was a DREAM! She took care of every detail, and was extremely knowledgeable about EVERY aspect of our travel...she was always prompt in her responses to my one million questions...we are a family of 5, and from beginning to end, our trip was seamless. Allison knew what we needed and made sure everything was in place for us to have an easy and fun trip! I have recommended Allison to many friends and will continue to do so. Allison is an amazing, hard working and reliable travel planner!

Alison handled everything I asked her to and added special touches and surprises

Reviewed By annestr - Saratoga Springs, NY | Traveled to
Alison handled everything I asked her to and added special touches and surprises - like chocolate covered cherries on the cruise. I've handled my own vacations on the Internet for years. Having used Allison for my last two trips, I have not intention of going back to doing things on my own. Allison is thoroughly informed and was always willing to to things for me what I was busy with my own work. She made preparing for my trips simple and added thoughtful touches such as a box of chocolate covered cherries in my ship's cabin.

England Made Easy!

Reviewed By Alisa - Lake Grove, New York | Traveled to
Allison thank you so much for everything. The entire trip was perfect from start to finish! Your professionalism and attention to detail was greatly appreciated and made our trip worry free! I was so impressed that you took the time to confirm reservations and remind us to do so on the return trip. You remained committed to our plans long after the point of sale. That was quite a pleasant surprise. We will definitely get in touch when we are ready for new vacation plans and recommend your services to anyone that asks!! Thank you again!

Allison made our "Engagementmoon" a dream come true

Reviewed By Kristen - New York, NY | Traveled to
Allison helped us a plan a trip to Cabo; as this was our first time in Mexico we needed help! Allison took care of everything right down to transportation to and from the airport. She is so knowledgable, and graciously provided us with multiple options within our budget. She helped to make this trip so special as it ended up being the celebration of our engagement. Additionally, she made herself readily available by email and phone just in case we needed her assitance. I highly recommend Allison if you want to get the most of any trip, with seamless and easy planning.

Allison=vacation planning made easy

Reviewed By Karolyn - Pearl River, NY | Traveled to
My family has had the pleasure of taking 3 vacations ( Disney, St. Lucia, and Universal Studios) completely arranged by Allison. Her patience is unmatched, especially when I repeatedly change my mind about destination, hotel, etc. Her knowledge base where Disney is concerned is unsurpassed! She made navigating the often confusing task of fast passes and dining reservations a cinch. Although she did not have first hand experience in St. Lucia, she gathered information from other agents and previous clients to present to us all of our options and help us narrow it down to our best choice. Allison always makes herself very accessible and all phone calls/emails are returned quickly. My family was able to go on vacation without any worries, knowing that Allison was just a phone call away if we needed her.
