Scotland: should be on everyone's bucket list

Reviewed By Kelly - Grand Rapids, MI | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
Teri did a fabulous job putting together our trip to Scotland. I probably did not make it easy for her initially because I didn't really know exactly when to go/where to stay/what to do, etc. I had a LOT of questions! She was very patient and presented several different options before we decided on one of them. She was conscious of our budget and worked to stay within it. She suggested several areas to visit, gave us different suggestions for sightseeing, places to eat, museums to stroll through, and sights not to miss. She introduced us to Golf International and was the communication link between us and our golf was booked that way. Teri was a great communicator and I felt like she was on top of every detail throughout the process. And our vacation was completely amazing!
We had one little snag when the airline changed aircrafts. She was immediately on her computer and fixed everything. We didn't have to worry about anything! I am so thankful for Teri's talent!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Great trip to Ireland

Reviewed By Bob and Liz - Grand Rapids, MI | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Teri has helped us arrange 8 trips over the years. She has always been helpful, informative, efficient and responsive to our needs. She also is helpful in finding the best airfares and travel arrangements. When we are planning to travel, Teri is the one we go to and have never been disappointed.

Much more than a booking agent!

Reviewed By Uncle Rico - Alaska, Michigan | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Teri has done far more for us than merely booking flights and resorts. Being a traveler in a wheelchair, Teri has, over the past 12 years, gone above and beyond to arrange the details to accommodate my needs in flight, transportation and resort details.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Secrets Akumal Honeymoon

I want to say THANK YOU to Teri Yonker at Witte Travel for all of her help and assistance with our honeymoon. Without a doubt we had THE BEST TIME of our lives. Every detail was taken care of and it was so nice to not have to think or worry about anything. The flight was great (direct is definitely the way to go) and the resort was breathtaking!!!!!! Everything was absolutely perfect. It was so hard coming back, we did not want to leave. We would recommend Witte to anyone! They are fabulous!
