Our Honeymoon at El Dorado Seaside Suites

The service at El Dorado was excellent & easily our favorite part of the resort. The lush landscaping was really beautiful and helped keep the resort cool. Really the resort was quiet. We weren't there to party at all, it's a good thing, because this was really not a party property. The spa was excellent, the service there was fantastic. The couples massage was very good. This spa was the fanciest I've been to. There was a Mayan Water journey before your treatment. It was a cool experience, helping you get in the relaxing mood. Everything at the spa, from the sounds to the smell, was relaxing. The food and drinks were very good. Lots of options & gourmet! It was the best margarita I've ever had, I think it was because the lime juice was fresh squeezed. Your service, was exactly what I expected, excellent. I also knew if I had any problems while away, you would be prompt and helpful. Thank God I didn't need it. Thank you so much for giving us an amazing honeymoon!

What A Great Experience!!

Reviewed By Sher - Cottage Grove, MN | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
From the first contact with Rachel through the planning and scheduling Rachel provided excellent service. She always kept in contact and answered any and all of my many questions. My husband and I had not traveled by air lately and never outside of the US so I had a lot of questions. Along with answering my questions Rachel also provided some extra information that helped make the trip easier and a great experience. Our flight to Cancun and back was flawless and everything went very well. In Cancun the hotel was so beautiful and provided a great experience for both my husband and I. We were there for our son's wedding and the wedding was also great. We could not have asked for a better trip and I am already ready to go back. We look forward to dealing with Rachel in the future because we already have some other places we want to visit as well as, I am sure now, going back to Cancun.

We have worked with Rachel for over 13 years. She has helped us make vacation plans for 16 Disney Cruises, numerous DisneyWorld trips, and our new favorite, Adventures by Disney South Africa, and Rhine River cruise.

Unforgettable adventures

Rachel was enormous help planning a trip to New Zealand and Australia. We told her what we were interested in and she planned the perfect trip. But we later started planning a trip to Norway with a side trip for a wedding in Scotland, and it was just too complicated. So we turned the whole crazy thing (10 different flights, rental car, cruise, three train trips) over to Rachel and she was able to sort it all out and plan a fantastic, seamless trip. She was a lifesaver and left us with two unforgettable adventures.

Cruising over the Christmas Holidays

Reviewed By Dawn - Saint Paul, MN | Traveled to Caribbean
I had the pleasure of working with Rachel for our cruise to the Eastern Caribbean over the Christmas and New Years Holiday. Originally we were working with another agent who left the travel industry. The original agent booked the initial cruise, then Rachel took over our account. They both did a phenomenal job to ensure that the transition was seamless from our perspective.

A week before the final payment was due, she contacted us which is nice. It allowed us to make the payment and ensure that it was processed in plenty of time before our trip. She helped us coordinate transfers from the ship to the airport. She also offered to help make flight arrangements but we didn't avail our selves to her offer.

Rachel was helpful in ensuring that we had the proper paperwork prior to our cruise and answered any questions we had.

She would touch base with us on a regular basis in case we had questions or asked if we needed anything.

Awesome service!

Reviewed By J Olson - Eden Prairie, MN | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Rachel is great at providing several options up front, but then has no issues with searching for more options by request. She's very knowledgeable and helpful! She provided lots of information, and followed up afterwards to make sure we had a great trip. We've used her several times, and will continue to do so.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Good trip

Reviewed By Bev - Cottage Grove, Wis | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Rachel was very efficient and cooperative. She made recommendations which made our trip easy and more comfortable for us. ( the ride to and from the airport). We had no problems and loved the resort we stayed at. Also the travel plans were made in a timely fashion so we had no worry about anything and could just sit back and relax. Thank you Rachel.

Excellently Planned Trips

Reviewed By Happy Travelers - Grand Marais, Minnesota | Traveled to Florida ~ USA
She did an excellent job in setting up our trip to Florida this year and in 2014 she also was excellent in her setting up of our trip to Austria. Both times everything went really well and, as a result, we had a great time in both locations. The departure and arrival times were perfect, the hotel accommodations she selected were excellent, the proximity of the hotels to the important sights and airports were just right and the rental cars was just what we asked for.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Rachel Swanson responded:
Thank you! I enjoyed working with you to plan both of your trips. I am so glad that you have had a seamless experience on both occasions and enjoy the time visiting with your family! I look forward to working with you on your next adventure wherever that may take you!

Mekong River on Viking River Cruises

Reviewed By Linda - Maple Grove, MN | Traveled to Vietnam ~ East and Southeast Asia
Rachel has helped us plan an amazing trip on Oceania Cruises to Europe, Viking river cruise in Vietnam and Cambodia, and an upcoming European trip on Viking. She has also helped us get airline tickets for our grandson and was a resource when my daughter and I planned a trip to Maui. On all cases she was helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive to our needs.
