First All Inclusive Trip!

Reviewed By Brad F - Denver, CO | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
It was a pleasure working with Patt to book our first ever all inclusive vacation. When we started shopping, we had no idea where we wanted to go. We knew we wanted an all inclusive experience somewhere with a beach and fun nightlife. We were thinking Belize or Cabo, but after talking with Patt, Puerto Vallarta ended up ticking all the boxs we were looking for.

Patt walked us through the entire experience, providing detailed instructions from the travel logistics for the best things to do in town, and how not to get scammed at the airport (we almost did, but Patt's training taught us to recognize it fast). We had the time of our lives at Secrets in Vallarta Bay, and will definitely be back. We will also be using Patt to book all of our future vacation experiences. We love to go places we've never been, and leaning on the expertise of Patt we knew how to travel to truly enjoy our experience without getting caught up in the traps we saw the other tourists experience.

Patt Potter responded:
Thank you. Puerto Vallarta and Secrets are a great combination!

The best trip of our lives!

Reviewed By Linda - Lino Lakes | Traveled to Negril ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Patt has been so full of good information for all of our trips she has booked for us over the years. She was always quick to suggest local entertainment and sites to see. She knew the resorts and gave us accurate information on all of them. She always did something a little extra for us too, like getting us into the VIP lounge at the airport on the way home so we could relax and have a bite to eat before the flight. It was a great way to end our last trip. I highly recommend Patt to everyone!

Amazing trip in an unbelievable location!

Reviewed By Tanya - Hastings, MN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Patt was great to work with! At the beginning she sat down and talked to us about what we wanted for our trip, asking questions so she could truly understand who we were and what our goals for our trip were. She coordinated our entire trip....her expertise on the area we were traveling to ensured our plans were aligned to what we wanted out of the trip, not to mention that she saved us a ton of time! Patt even went above and beyond and assisted us during our trip booking car rental reservations when an Italian train strike occurred (not fun!).

I would highly recommend Patt - she is a fantastic person to work with and exceptional at her job.

I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Patt Potter responded:
This was a wonderful trip to plan. I appreciate how much input you were able to provide to make this a success. Not to mention your flexibility to change plans a bit to avoid the train strike. Italy is one of my all time favorite destinations. Thank you again!

Two wonderful experiences with Patt's assistance

Reviewed By Steve and Deb - Circle Pines | Traveled to England ~ Europe
Patt put together the greatest trip to Ireland and England for us. She arranged a combination of a guided bus tour, followed by a rental car tour on our own. She was very accommodating of our hopes for quaint lodgings. She put together a comprehensive notebook with all the schedule, reservations, maps, and attractions. We had one problem with a double-booked hotel in Oxford, Patt worked quickly and got it resolved. A great trip.

Patt is currently putting together a trip to London and rural England for us and our neighbors. It involves planes and trains and hotels. She is very helpful, and we are confident that the is trip will be as great as was our earlier trip.

Cruise of a lifetime

Reviewed By Kayla - Cedar, MN | Traveled to St. Lucia Island ~ St. Lucia ~ Caribbean
Patt is a dream come true in travel agents. Every step of the way, Patt was focused on making sure our vacation was perfect. Our vacation was in January and there was a snow storm that was causing major delays and cancellations. Patt immediately went to work insuring that we got to our destination on time. Patt scheduled our motels, transfers and again, rescheduled a very difficult flight, down to the detail of getting us seats together on an already full plane. Patt will certainly be who we chose to plan our next vacation.

Thank you! I am so glad you were able to get out ahead of that huge snowstorm last winter. I look forward to working with you again.

Our Great Adventures

Reviewed By Jim & Dawn - St Michael, MN | Traveled to Caribbean

We started working with Patt Potter many, many years ago. She has booked cruises for us, booked plane tickets for us, researched resorts and booked them for us. We are very demanding and hard to please but each and every time that we worked with Patt she hit it out of the park! We rely very heavily on Patt for our vacations each year. This year we had Patt arrange a month long trip to Scotland for our daughter and as Patt always does she went way, way past the extra mile explaining all the ins and outs of international travel for our daughter and lined up a super trip for her.
We would never even think of using anyone but Patt for our travel plans.

Another time she booked a trip to Mexico that involed 6 people coming from 3 differant states-she coordinated the whole trip for everyone.
