Our dream trip to AFRICA.. and now we're hooked!

Reviewed By Lauren - Chicago, IL q | Traveled to Kenya ~ Africa
The Timely Traveler recently sent us on our dream trip to AFRICA! The trip was part South Africa (Cape Town & wine country) and part safari in Kenya (Masai Mara & Lewa Conservancy) and it was a great mix of adventure, relaxation, authentic experiences and luxury. We are so pleased with the way The Timely Traveler paced, planned and executed the trip of our dreams. We're addicted to safari now and can't wait to go back with the help of The Timely Traveler again!

Luxury Thailand Honeymoon

Reviewed By Elyse - Chicago, IL | Traveled to Thailand ~ East and Southeast Asia
DeJuan and his team did a fantastic job planning our honeymoon in Thailand! Since our honeymoon involved quite a lot of moving pieces and coordination traveling between cities within Thailand, I really appreciate the preparation documents and app we received prior to our trip. It made everything a breeze! We would 100% use The Timely Traveler again! Thank you DeJuan and team.

AMAZING!!!!

Reviewed By Gloria E - Los Angeles, CA | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
The timely traveler went above and beyond to make our girls trip to Turks and Caicos one to remember. The attention to detail from finding the best flights, to the best hotel within your budget, and will even book fun local activities for you based on your interests. We took a sunset boat cruise that included music, drinks, food and an exploration of another island. I will never try to book another vacation on my own! Save yourself the stress of sitting in front of your lap top for hours hoping you chose a good hotel with the right amenities and the shortest flight and let the experts take care of it! They know how to find you that deal better than you can!!

Fantastic service, highly recommend!

Reviewed By Lenny and Amanda - Chicago, IL | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
My wife and I were referred to Dejuan by a friend when we began to plan our honeymoon. Not only did he help us choose a destination based on the experience we wanted, but he set up an amazing trip that fit our budget. We were slightly apprehensive, as we had never traveled to Europe before, but Dejuan set us up with a detailed itinerary and all of the arrangements needed to make out trip run smoothly. He offered fantastic recommendations and activities that allowed us to get the most out of each of our stops throughout Italy. He was extremely accessible during the planing process and even while we were on the trip, taking several phone calls during odd hours to ensure we would have the best trip possible. He was even kind enough to arrange for a bottle of wine to be waiting in one of our hotels upon checkin. Thank you Dejuan for an unforgettable trip and making our honeymoon so special. Would highly recommend to anyone planning a trip, especially to Italy!

Epic Honeymoon - Tanzania, South Africa & Egypt

Reviewed By Chrissy Bell - St. Paul, Minneapolis | Traveled to Tanzania ~ Africa
Timely Traveler was amazing! DeJuan planned the most epic month long honeymoon in Tanzania, South Africa and Egypt. We wouldn’t have changed a thing and we kept getting surprised by all the amazing things we had planned that we may not have been able to find ourselves. It was such an easy process and exceeded our expectations. We really felt like the trip was exactly what we wanted at every turn
