The travel whisperer

Reviewed By Rebecca - Alexandria, VA | Traveled to Iceland ~ Europe
I have done multiple trips with Lisa, both inside and outside the US, including Miami, Montreal, and Iceland. She has an unfailing knack for finding the most authentic experiences (and the best flight/lodging deals). She has a talent for sniffing out those great but off-the-beaten track neighborhoods, restaurants, and activities. Her genuine love of travel, culture, and adventure means that she wants you to have the trip of your dreams every time, and she will work tirelessly to make sure of it.

Second to None

Reviewed By Aimster - St. Paul, MN | Traveled to Tanzania ~ Africa
Lisa was the consummate travel agent to assist with my bookings for my once in a lifetime trip abroad to Africa. Professional, responsive, and she went the extra mile to tend to our needs and find out what we were looking for. While we were in Tanzania, we had the full experience we asked for- spending our time between authentic local experiences in villages and seeing the animals in Serengeti National Park, to a relaxing in a cost effective and beautiful resort in Zanzibar. The best of both worlds!

Amazing Nicaragua Adventure!

Reviewed By Jennifer - Cheverly, MD | Traveled to Nicaragua ~ Central America
Lisa planned a trip to Nicaragua for me and a small group of friends over the New Year’s holiday. She is incredible at finding experiences that are off the beaten path and not the tourist traps that everyone else goes to. She designed an itinerary that was based on our specific group’s interests, and the entire trip went off without a hitch. I highly recommend Lisa if you are looking for someone who can provide professional travel planning and has the insight of a local!

Authentic and Mesmerizing Cuba Experience

Reviewed By Jim C. - Arlington, Virginia | Traveled to Cuba ~ Caribbean
Lisa planned our trip to Cuba and spared no detail while doing it. She did a ton of planning before even meeting with us to lay out our options. She outlined the pro's and con's of each proposed step. We felt she knew exactly what she was doing (especially knowing that she had traveled there several times). She was great at telling us what to expect when we arrived. During our trip there were no surprises because of all the information we were given prior to our trip. After Cuba, I used Lisa to plan a trip to the Antarctic and she didn't disappoint at the bottom of the earth either!

Awfully FANTASTIC!!!

Reviewed By The Irish Cuban - Miami | Traveled to New York City ~ New York ~ USA
In a few words it was very easy to work with Lisa. She’s very passionate and knowledgeable about traveling in general and it shows as she puts together a funtastic itinerary for you. She actually made a 3 big city itinerary for me namely Chicago, New York City and DC. She arranged flights, lodging and activities. Superb customer service hence i have not stopped recommending her services to anyone I know. Keep up the good work Lisa.

Incredible experience all around!

Reviewed By Heather - California | Traveled to Iceland ~ Europe
Lisa is amazing and truly the best travel agent I have ever worked with!! She custom tailored our Iceland trip according to our preferences and gave great suggestions for our itinerary that we loved! Lisa planned an incredible trip and coordinated all of our activities with local tour operators - she is extremely organized and provided us with documentation of full daily activity details and tour vouchers well in advance of our trip. Lisa also went above and beyond while we were on the trip to make sure we were informed when there were updates to the tour schedules due to weather, and provided great options for rescheduling tours to fit our schedules! We honestly felt so taken care of before and during the trip and knew we could count on her if we had any questions or needs anytime. I highly recommend Lisa and will absolutely connect with her again for our next adventure!

Dreamy Thailand

Reviewed By Yabdou - Chapel Hill, NC | Traveled to Thailand ~ East and Southeast Asia
Lisa Emmi was absolutely wonderful! She worked day and night to get our itinerary together. Unlike other tourist agencies, Lisa made sure she personalized our experiences to our liking. She had an initial telephone consultation to get to know us and what we wanted out of our travel experience. Then she communicated back and forth until she perfected our travel plans. We had an absolutely spectacular time in Thailand with no hiccups whatsoever- thanks to Lisa! I would definitely recommend her without any reservations if you plan on having a once in a lifetime experience.

Bucket List Trip to Iceland

Reviewed By Michelle G - Las Vegas, NV | Traveled to Iceland ~ Europe
Iceland has always been on our bucket list, but when we finally sat down to try and plan the trip ourselves, we quickly became overwhelmed. Lisa Emmi to the rescue! We reached out to Lisa and explained the key areas that we wanted to visit and she proceed to plan a trip of a lifetime! She made everything so easy and provided us not only with the perfect itinerary, but helped us with all the details and Covid protocols. I'm not sure this trip ever would have happened without her help! Highly recommend!

Best vacation in a long time

Reviewed By pt - port clinton, OH | Traveled to Curacao ~ Netherlands Antilles ~ Caribbean
Lisa was amazing! She did all of the leg work and put together the perfect trip. I have made trips on my own but never again. Traveling during covid and world events can be difficult. Lisa knew exactly the protocols and testing that needed to be done. She listened to all my preferences and goals. In the end I had a wonderful trip in curacao for a much needed get away and I will repeat.

Wonderful Trip!

Reviewed By Alison - Detroit, Michigan | Traveled to Indiana ~ USA
Lisa helped me make a really wonderful and rejuvenating vacation possible. It was a memorable loop from Detroit down through Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Ohio. The focus was staying in historic hotels (each on the Register of Historic Places) and hiking. Lisa listened to what I wanted to do and crafted a trip. She was communicative and had great ideas. I am really grateful for the wonderful memories that this trip gave me and for the excellent help and expertise that Lisa provided!
