SOOO GRATEFUL FOR HER EXISTENCE!

Reviewed By Danielle - New York, NY | Traveled to
FIRSTLY, Donna is a wealth of knowledge & expertise! My experience with her and stepping out travel has been nothing short of AMAZING! Planning a destination wedding is a very large undertaking...one I hadn't realized was sooo extensive until I started the process. I was overwhelmed, confused and stuck to say the least. Then I called Donna (cue the rays of sunshine, trumpets & angels!!!) not only did she calm me down and assure me she would be there every step of the way, but her knowledge of the Caribbean helped me narrow down 4 weeks of my indecision through internet research, in our first 30 minutes of conversation! She had personally traveled to all of the resorts I was considering and was able to help me envision the locations from her first hand account. This was HUGE! The advice I received regarding the actual travel for my guests, (the airports, flight paths & times and special accommodations for my young nieces and nephews) was something I hadn't found during my internet searches, nor would I have thought to ask. This is when Donna's role became detrimental to me pulling off my dream wedding! She really cares about her clients, and I am so lucky have her with me on this journey! She has contacted the resorts and arranged travel for my fiance and I to "test drive" the wedding locations prior to making any final decisions AND told me the questions I need to ask when I arrive! She is so thorough!! I can't recommend her enough to everyone I speak to! Never again will I book travel without her! so, Donna, Thank you for being the BEST travel agent I could have ever hoped for! I truly would not be able to pull off my dream destination wedding without you and can't wait to become a Mrs. in Turks 2017! xo

So Helpful!

Reviewed By Flo - Point Pleasant, NJ | Traveled to
Donna has been an excellent resource helping my Girl Scout Troop in planning their last trip as a Troop. After being together for 13 years our troop wanted to celebrate where everyone would enjoy themselves. With 10 girls and each of their mothers the first stage of finding a place was becoming difficult to do on our own. Then entered Donna and she has been fantastic! Donna brought our group many options to choose from keeping everyone's likes and dislikes in mind. After making our final choice Donna set up accounts and had our paperwork ready to go. We are now all set for our final troop trip and we thank Donna for helping make our last adventure an exciting one!

She got us set up for our cruise in no time flat!

Reviewed By Eileen - Brick, NJ | Traveled to
I was in touch with Donna regarding a cruise our family was planning. We knew which ship we wanted to sail on as well as the date we wanted to depart, however, our group covered different age levels. I told Donna what we were looking for, along with our other details, and we were set to go before the day was out. Donna had the answers to most of our questions, and whatever she didn't know, she would immediately set out to resolve. I know that anything that comes up will be handled professionally and quickly. Would definitely seek out Donna again for any of our travel plans in the future!
