Hawaii for your Multi-Gen Family Vacation

Waikiki Beach

amily vacations no longer mean Mom, Dad and the kids – grandparents are part of the equation nowadays!  Older people are much more active than they used to be, and often they live far away from their children and grandchildren.  It’s so much more fun for the family to reunite on vacation – nobody has to cook or clean, and there’s always something fun to do for everyone.

There are lots of places that are great for this kind of vacation, but I think Hawaii is one of the best, and here’s why: 

Awesome adventures on every island

  • Hawaii ( the Big Island) is home to the spectacular Kilauea, an active volcano in Volcanoes National Park, the black sand beach at Punalu’u, and (for Grandma and Grandpa) coffee and macadamia nut plantations
  • Maui for viewing humpback whales, watching the sunrise on Haleakala, and driving the road to Hana to enjoy the Seven Sacred Pools
  • Kauai for a helicopter ride over majestic Waimea Canyon, strolls through beautiful garden preserves, and a chance to see turtles and seals on Poipu Beach
  • Oahu for authentic Hawaiian history at the Polynesian Cultural Center and a traditional luau, a visit to the Pearl Harbor Memorial, and Waikiki Beach for people watching and souvenir shopping 

Your keiki (child) will love playing on the fabulous sand beaches, learning to surf or play the ukulele, and teaching Grandma and Grandpa how to hula.  Mom and Dad will love having built-in babysitters so they can play some of the award winning golf courses on the islands or have a peaceful cocktail while watching the sunset.  Grandma and Grandpa will just love being part of this experience  spending quality time with their grandchildren ( provided they’re allowed a nap once in a while!)  

Get the family together, pack your cameras and sunscreen, and give me a call!

Amazing family adventures!

Reviewed By bigwaterb - Stillwater, MN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
My husband & I have historically booked trips on our own - until the family was planning a trip to Italy. Beth was recommended to us by one of our family members. She was instrumental in making sure that not only our travel arrangements were planned perfectly, but also arranged tours and gave insight into places that were a "must see." She consistently took into account our traveling "style" to ensure an amazing trip! We have since used Beth's services for trips to Belize and St. Lucia. Again, top notch in all aspects of our trips!! We would (and have) recommend Beth to our friends and family.

Stranded

Reviewed By Tom - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Saba Island Netherland ~ Netherlands Antilles ~ Caribbean
On Mar 13, 14 Minneapolis-based Scuba Center travelers departed for a trip to Saba Island, Caribbean. Flights were arranged by Beth Fortin. Thru St Maarten, the group arrived in Saba on Sat. Sun. the group was informed that airports in Saba and St Maarten were closing Tuesday due to Covid 19. Thru Travel Leaders I contacted Beth. She immediately went to work, working late into Sunday and all day Monday on flight arrangements. This involved multiple changes as flights became available. Beth found itineraries to fly thru San Juan, Miami, St Kitts, Newark, Chicago, Atlanta, and Philadelphia. All arrived home safe. From clients I heard stories about the madhouse in St Maarten as those without support from a travel agent were desperate. Counter agents and websites crashing left them stranded. I am grateful that Beth dropped everything and focused her skills to bring our group home. I am 100% certain that without her efforts the outcome for our travelers would have been different.

Beth Fortin responded:
I am glad you were able to reach me so I could take the burden off of your travelers. Thank you for you review and your support of our travel agency over the years.

Stress free

Reviewed By Thailand - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Thailand ~ East and Southeast Asia
Very good! Beth was very kind and patient with the many changes of itineraries. The trip was for two elderly women traveling alone . We have requested wheelchairs for the travelers and aisle seatings. Beth made sure these requests were done as she understood the concerns and importance of it. The travelers came home happy and said they were stressfree because wheelchairs were at the gates waiting for them when they departed MN and returned from Thailand . We are very happy the travelers did not have to find their ways around the airports with speaking very little English.

Extended Family Vacation

Reviewed By Trav3ll3r - Centerville, MN | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I am so happy we chose to work with Beth for our family vacation. I have often used travel agents in the past, but did not find that they met my needs. I also book a lot of travel for our family myself, so I was not sure if we would be able to maximize Beth’s services. I am thrilled that we decided to work with her for this trip. She helped us to select the resort that was the best fit for us. She asked all the right questions to learn about our expectations and interests, and she priced a variety of resorts and airfare options. She was also able to provide assistance with mobility for my parents in law that we would not have been able to do on our own. With our larger group, assistance needs, and the ongoing changes due to Covid we are so glad to have had Beth to work with. We would absolutely use her services again in the future. I am so glad to have found her and look forward to working with her for our future travel needs.

Reviewed By Nareg Minassian - Burbank, CA | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
Beth made the trip of a lifetime very possible! She asked us about the destination, what we like to do and a few other questions and took it from there. A few days later, she reached back out with flights, transfers and hotel reservations, she gave us a link for a list of activities to do at our destination. We went through the list, which had detailed descriptions of each activity including previous comments from other travelers, we picked a bunch of activities, Beth helped us eliminate the ones that would not fit our schedule or our preferences and booked everything else. within 2 weeks, our trip was reserved and booked. As soon as we got to Greece, we could not believe how much work she had put into making sure everything was perfect for us. The hotels, the views, the amenities, the tours, the transfers, the restaurants and even the surprise birthday cake from our hotel on the day of my birthday. Beth planned the perfect trip for us and we can't thank her enough for her hard work!
