Italy Testimonial


Capital Area Travel Leaders
Jody Carpenter

Jody was an ideal Travel Agent for our group of Baby Boomers and Millennials as we planned our trip to Italy – the first for all of us. She listened to all of our requests and considered our unique needs as she planned our itinerary. Every suggestion Jody made was excellent as she considered our budget, time constraints, and personal likes and dislikes. In addition, to accommodate our schedules Jody amended hers - meeting us after hours and on weekends to work out the details.

Before departure, Jody provided a detailed itinerary that showcased her professionalism and care – it was if she was planning the vacation of a beloved family member. .Her hotel recommendations in Venice, Florence, Rome and Sorrento were outstanding in location, service and price.

Jody and Capital Area Travel Leaders will be my choice when I plan my next vacation and I extend a most sincere thank you to Jody Carpenter for arranging a truly wonderful Italian vacation.

Italy

Reviewed By The Oakleys - Grand Ledge MI | Traveled to Rome ~ Italy ~ Europe
Jody has been a life saver for us when unexpected events occurred, looking for alternative methods of completing a trip without cancellation, and helping us cancel a trip due to a family situation mandating that we stay home. She is excellent to work with in setting up multiple destinations and tips on activities and transportation.

Jody to the rescue

Reviewed By Travel lover - Grand Ledge | Traveled to Canada
Jody is always willing to help even if you are looking for something that is not the norm and takes more effort on her part. She has helped my husband and I plan several trips and we even went on one together that she had set up. When there is a problem, she always puts it right. We enjoy working with her. Recently when she started to put together an trip for us, including a tour or two and extra time for us to explore, we had a family emergency and our plans changed. We needed to fly out of the county to help one of our children and decided we needed to can our other plans and just go with something plain and simple at a later date. She got everything set up for both trips and everything was great.

An amazing national parks vacation!

Reviewed By 5horsemen12345 - Charlotte, MI | Traveled to Utah ~ USA
I thoroughly love working with Jody. A friend of mine referred me to Jody about 5 years ago and I wouldn't use anybody else. My husband and I traveled with our friends on a national parks tour with Trafalgar and it was amazing. The next trip was to Boston, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard and Cape Cod with my mother on Globus. That was an equally amazing trip. Next year we are heading to Alaska and are booking through Jody.

Excellent, Personalized Service

Reviewed By Alissa and Dave B - Augusta, GA | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
We have had the pleasure of working with Jody for many years. During that time, she has set up numerous, sometimes complex trips for us. This has included working with many international hotels, and negotiating with the airlines over the use of frequent flyer miles for International travel involving multiple destinations.

Jody is always great to talk to, and very available. She is extremely knowledgeable about the travel industry.

Based on our recommendation, our daughters and their husbands have used Jody's services as well, with complete satisfaction.

There is true "value added" to what Jody does, and we give her an unqualified recommendation.

Happy Sailors!

Reviewed By Jo - Lansing | Traveled to Caribbean
Jody has been a pleasure to work with. We have booked 5 cruises through her, 2 of which were back to back, and have never been disappointed. She is always available to discuss the details, make changes, etc. Jody is wonderful at keeping on top of the process and reminding us when something is due, needs to be signed, payment needs processed. She makes the whole planning process stress free. We are very happy with the excellent service we receive from her.
