Dominican Trip

Reviewed By Matt - Grimes, IA | Traveled to
We contacted Carol to help us plan a trip to the Dominican. After looking at trying to book a trip by ourselves we knew that would be risky. Carol had wonderful knowledge of places to stay at. She booked us a great place and had everything outlined in our travel documents. We had flight issues but by the time we landed in Punta Cana everything was taken care of for us. This was a great trip thanks to Carol!

Two in a Row - Best 25th Anniversay ever

Reviewed By Fett - Mason City, IA | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Carol was extremely helpful in both trips (Jamaica and Hawaiian Islands) we used her services for. She provided local knowledge and great advice on travel. She helped us with air, facilities, excursions and car rental. The facilities she picked out were excellent for our family. When scheduling our excursions she made sure they were reputable. The surfing was outstanding. Everyone in our family was able to surf. Highly recommend the semi-private lessons. The zip line was exciting and an excellent experience! It was great to see other parts of the island. We are very happy and glad we found her! We look forward to booking our next trip with Carol.

Unforgettable honeymoon!

Reviewed By Allie Black - Clear Lake, Iowa | Traveled to Mexico
Carol helped us book an amazing honeymoon! We reached out to Carol and right away she worked to find us the best resort and flight deals. We went to Xcaret Resort in Mexico and it was incredible. The food, drinks, shuttle, and 8 adventure parks were all included and the service and workers there were outstanding. My husband and I joked that we have ruined ourselves for any other resort! Highly recommend this resort and Carol's services. You will not be disappointed!

Never again

Reviewed By Frequent flyer - Riceville, IA | Traveled to Mexico
Our resort was great, unfortunately our booking was not.
From the beginning, Carol was very rude and condescending. All of us with the exception of one couple booked within 24 hours of each other and each person was given a different price. Every email that was sent with our breakdown of our trip cost was different each time. When we would call Carol to ask/question things, she was very unpleasant, always acting as if we were bothering her and would be argumentative if you questioned anything. She would cut you off you off during a conversation just to make her point. In one of our conversations, I told her that I was very disappointed with her service and would not book with her again, she then became angry with me telling me I didn't understand what she was saying. We never once felt she appreciated our business.

Relax and well rested trip

Reviewed By Renee13 - Thornton, Iowa | Traveled to Playa Mujeres ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
We have used her once before so when we called to use her again(for the same exact trip) she didn't have our stuff on file. That was fine because I had it all from last time. Got everything lined up. We asked if our first bag was free and said yes, turns out we had to pay for all our bags. That was frustrating. But we got through it. We also requested a pool view at the resort and got a garden view(which didn't seem like a garden at all). Also wanted our rooms together and we didn't get that either. It turned out to be ok. But all and all we had a relaxing vacation with a few hiccups. Vacation went well otherwise. Would use her again because searching sites and comparing is a headache for me.

Most everything turned out as planned. Carol did a great job of giving us trip options and making all the arrangements!! The resort was excellent. Outstanding service!!

The only difference in the plans was that I had to have a caddie when I played golf which I wasn't aware of, but the experience of having a caddie was excellent. Only difference was a required $20 tip.

I would suggest that the flight confirmation number be included with the travel documents. I had to look these up from the email confirmation.

Family Vacation Success

Reviewed By SueA - Charles City, Iowa | Traveled to
Once again Carol assisted us in arranging a perfect family vacation in Cabo San Lucas. We have been using her services for years and she always does a great job answering questions and offering options to make our travel more enjoyable. This time, she helped us take 10 family members to a great resort, got upgrades for 2 who were honeymooning and us who were celebrating my husband's 60th, and did last minute flight adjustments for 2 others. She really does believe in great customer service. If you want her to do all the arrangements, she will. If you found a great deal and want her input, that's great also. She really goes the extra mile to make sure that your vacation is all it can be. She offers tips to make traveling easier and she responds quickly and professionally to all requests. She even helps with park and fly reservations. She also makes great recommendations for places her clients might enjoy. You can't go wrong trusting your precious vacation days with Carol.

She took all the stess out for " new travelers"

Reviewed By Mellmanns' - Rudd, Iowa | Traveled to
We had never lined up traveling by air and were unsure how to go about it all. We were going to Las Vegas for the first time and felt that some expertise in lining up the best way to fly and the best place to stay was important. Since we' d never flown before we thought some help and advise was important and Carol did a wonderful job! We had problems with our flight being cancelled to come back, called Carol and she took care of getting us on the next flight! We really feel like she took the stress out of our vacation so we could enjoy it! We will be contacting Carol for our next vacation to Norway!

Always worry free and a pleasure to work with Carol for travel plans!

Reviewed By Johnnie B - CCTown, IA | Traveled to
We have booked our travel adventures and some business trips thru Carol for many years. And Carol once again arranged our trip this time with FunJet Vacations out of Minneapolis to Playa del Carmen in January for a March 2016 vacation to the RIU Palace Riveria Maya, in Mexico. This is a beautiful resort with great service, excellent food, and connected with four additional RIU resort which you can also access and use . We have stayed at RIU Palace resorts before in many of our other Caribbean destinations, so the decision was easy for us. She also arranged our Stay and Fly Hotel. Had a great trip. Weather was great, only one day of rain showers on the beach. A good time and we made some great friends from Canada. THANKS Carol for all your assistance. (Especially we alerting us to update our expiring passports.) Hope to work with you again soon!

Helpful for late bookers!

Reviewed By Sarah - Protivin, IA | Traveled to
Carol was very helpful in helping us book in December for a group trip in February. After a spot opened up, she was very quick to go over the different price options and discuss her suggestions on what to do. She helped us get information quickly, payment options, and trip details that matched the rest of the group (same resort, flights, etc.). Our trip was amazing, and went very smoothly (with the help of our other travelers that have booked with Carol before). I would highly consider booking another trip with Carol!
