Le Barthelemy, the Epitome of Luxury

Le Barthelemy started out amazing and just keeps getting better! A mere 10 months after opening their doors in 2016, they were hit by a hurricane. They focused on the positive and took the knowledge they have gained the first year in business, made some amazing improvements and reopened in October 2018, ...

Global Entry, TSA, Mobile Passport or CLEAR?

There are different methods to avoid lines at the airport. Some assist with SECURITY lines while others are designed to assist with CUSTOMS lines. These are very different so let's get them straight:

CUSTOMS - refers to items being brought into a country upon the return from your trip

Staying Healthy While Traveling

I wasn't a germophobe until after working in a hospital for many years. I learned the proper way to wash my hands and all about the transmission of germs. Staying healthy largely means not allowing germs to come into contact with the face (eyes, mouth and nose). Here are a few ... Read more from my Staying Healthy While Traveling story.

Awesome Aruba!

Reviewed By LesK - Summit, NJ | Traveled to Aruba ~ Caribbean
Buffy was easy to work with and took our initial idea ("Let's go to Aruba!") and ran with it. She found out that the hotel we'd heard so much about was undergoing a big contraction project during our stay, so she recommended another hotel that we liked even better! Our flights were easy and her restaurant recommendations were spot on. We hadn't worked with a travel agent since our honeymoon 20+ years ago, and Buffy made everything refreshingly easy!

A DREAM HONEYMOON!

Buffy was so amazing to work with when planning my honeymoon to Greece. She answered every and any question i had, she was super fast when replying to my emails, and she was genuinely eager to create an amazing itinerary for us. She made sure we worked through any conflicts I had with pricing and scheduling, she was super detailed, and explained everything perfectly. We did not have one single issue when we were in Greece because of how precise she was! I absolutely recommend her to anyone, and I plan on using her services again for our next big adventure.

DREAM HONEYMOON IN PARADISE

Reviewed By Mr. & Mrs. Irace - Middletown, CT | Traveled to Bali ~ Indonesia ~ East and Southeast Asia
We had originally planned on spending our honeymoon in Italy. After going back and forth a few times brainstorming, Buffy created what looked like an amazing itinerary and trip. Then we decided to completely switch things up and go to Bali instead. Buffy went back to the drawing board and put together the trip of a lifetime. 2 weeks - 3 locations - 4 excursions (all private tours) coordinating every aspect of our trip for us. Everything she picked for us worked out perfectly, from the luxurious resorts down to the quality of transportation and the very very kind tour guides we met along the way We could not be anymore pleased with the trip and will definitely use Buffy for all future traveling. We put our trust in Buffy to plan our Honeymoon for us and she knocked it out of the park!

Buffy Aronstein responded:
oh my gosh, you are so kind! I loved working with both of you and can't wait to plan another vacation for you! It was absolutely my pleasure - thank you so much for the kind words!

Another Great Trip!

Reviewed By Chris and Rebecca - Bloomingdale, NJ | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Buffy made everything as easy as could be! This is the second time we used her and both times have been hassle free and great experiences! My wife and I are super busy and don’t really have the time to go through the seemingly endless reviews online. Buffy is super knowledgeable, great with communication, and gets the best price plus some extras. We will continue to book vacations through her in the future and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking to travel.

Honeymoon of our dreams!!

Reviewed By Chris and Samantha - Summit, NJ | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Buffy was everything I wanted a travel agent to be and then some! My wife and I got married in September 2016 and Buffy helped me to organize the Honeymoon of our dreams! One of the first things that I liked about Buffy was her eagerness to take the stress out of the whole process for me and especially for my fiance (now wife!)

Long story short, after considering countless travel agents, we decided to give Buffy a shot. And we couldn't have chosen better! She helped us take our vision of the perfect honeymoon and make it a reality. Even when I challenged her with some special requests, Buffy went above and beyond to accommodate me and more then once acted as a champion for my fiance and I when complications arose. She was always available to talk and was quick to respond to questions and requests. I even called her the morning of our flight to help me decide on a electrical adapter! Buffy was absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend her to my friends and family! Thanks Buff

Fire and Ice Honeymoon

Reviewed By Leah and Avi - Pomona, NY | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Buffy helped us design our dream fire and ice honeymoon. She listen to what we both wanted to see, do and experience on our honeymoon. She then helped us plan a cruise to Alaska and a week in Maui. She helped us research and book the cruise excursions and gave us options of places to stay in Maui and car rentals. Before we left she even went over little details with us so that we knew how to get from the airport to the cruise ship port and even pointers on making our first cruise experience even better. Our honeymoon was everything we wanted and more thanks to Buffy.

Travelling Made Easier

Reviewed By Marc - Suffern, NY | Traveled to Aruba ~ Caribbean
Buffy has been handling my travel/vacation planning for a number of years. Her efforts have consistently started at the idea generation phase and typically have not ended until the end of my various trips. She's extremely flexible in her thinking and presenting various options to choose from. Additionally, she has always made herself available (during trips) to answer questions or address issues. She's a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for assistance in planning a trip or vacation.

Exceeded Expectations

Reviewed By CFinkelstein - Fairlawn, New Jersey | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Working with Buffy to plan our Hawaiian honeymoon was an absolute breeze and a pleasure. My husband and I were interested in visiting three of the islands (not the easiest trip to create an agenda for) and she was able to provide amazing hotel, restaurant, as well as, activity recommendations. Our expectations were more than exceeded and it was the trip of a lifetime. I have recommended Buffy in the past to friends/family and will continue to do so in the future.

Above and Beyond

Reviewed By M - NY | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Most professional we've ever worked with. Had great transport tips to and from airport and seaport, knew the details that were all handled so we had virtually nothing to do. All of the questions promptly answered and attentive. We were difficult as we had last minute changes and Buffy addressed every one without any concerns. Also, a mosquito virus was a threat and we were updated consistently on the possible risks and solutions as they developed. Buffy spent a lot of time researching this situation to keep us safe and appraised.

Customer Testimonials

Impressed with how smooth it went!

We had an amazing time & were really impressed with how smooth everything went with everything you booked for us. The concierge was super helpful & the room was beautiful. We got a nice bottle of champagne in our room :) We loved the location because it was in a quiet area but still so close to everything- we walked everywhere. Our room had a view of the water - wonderful. The room was quaint but had everything we needed for our stay. We absolutely loved the breakfast & even better that it was served on their rooftop. The agroturismo in San Gimignano was beautiful and they offered dinner which was great. Our room had really great views but was basic. There wasn’t wifi in our building- we had to go to the main building up the road. They gave us a bottle of wine when we checked out which was nice. We learned that it was important to call ahead if you were visiting a winery because they might not be able to take drops in on certain days. But really, we wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, nice job Buffy!

I cannot thank you enough. We had a great trip. The boys and I are your biggest fans.. we walked into the Cabin at Fernie and were all saying “Wow, nice job Buffy” , the place was awesome. Thank you for taking care of the “hiccup” , the credit was very fair. I refused to wrestle with the hotel while trying to be on vacation. Finally I thought to alert you to the situation, you did your thing and made it right. Instantly I was back in vacation mode. Thank you!

Thanks for a great Jamaican Honeymoon!

Rebecca and I wanted to thank you for all your help with planning the honeymoon. Everything was amazing and we both had an incredible time. Thanks to some very generous gifts, we ended up upgrading to a master suite with butler service so needless to say, our honeymoon was as about as perfect as could be. The Club Mobay addition was a great call, especially for when we first landed in Jamaica. So thank you for that suggestion as well. I don't have Facebook, but Rebecca will certainly send over some pictures! Thank you again for everything! Chris F.
