Every trip is wonderful!

Reviewed By Jerry - Westminster, Colorado | Traveled to Mexico
My wife and I have had the pleasure of dealing with Joan Bernardini for our travel needs since 2008. She has booked in the neighborhood of 15 to 20 trips for us in the past 10 years and is always willing to go out of her way to make sure that everything is perfect! Joan was even willing to help me obtain my birth certificate from my hometown by offering to drive there and get it in person when it appeared that I would not receive it in time for my passport application. Fortunately this was not necessary as I did receive it shortly after. I highly recommend Joan for all of your travel needs.

The Perfect Vacation Destination

Reviewed By DnB - Trumbull, CT | Traveled to Antigua ~ Antigua & Barbuda ~ Caribbean
This was my first time using a travel agent so I was not sure what to expect. Joan is personable, patient, knowledgeable and sifting through my requirements and found us the perfect vacation destination. And with all the hurricanes in the islands and Covid, she navigated through all the updates and information to keep us informed and calm as our trip was approaching. I will use Joan for all of my personal vacation travel going forward.

Best Birthday ever!!

Reviewed By Deanna - Las Vegas, NV | Traveled to Montego Bay ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Joan was there from start to finish. She had everything lined up and was able to get me the place that I actually wanted to stay. We were able to get our rooms pretty well bunched together. It was a lot to accommodate eight people on the same flights and in the same hotel. She did a wonderful job with letting us know what was going on when there was a strike at the airport. She's just the best and I won't use anyone else ever again.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

I am so glad to hear you loved the experience! I will be happy to help you again, whenever you need me !
