Customer Testimonials

Amazing Greek Honeymoon

Thank you for being on top of things and so responsive before and during our trip! We had an AMAZING time! Athens- Our hotel rooftop bar had an amazing view of the Acropolis. We really enjoyed the walking tour the first night - it was nice to be introduced to the city by foot before exploring on our own. Mykonos- We were treated like royalty at our hotel and was our favorite hotel on the trip. We really enjoyed the South Coast Tour because it allowed us to explore more of the island and the beaches without paying for the hotel shuttle. Santorini- The hotel was a good location and was a short walk from Fira which had restaurants, shopping, and amazing views of the caldera. We had a wonderful honeymoon and created memories we will never forget! THANK YOU so much for being so accommodating with us and creating a wonderful itinerary! We really appreciate it! :)

Personal Touch and Attention to Detail

A trip to Disney world is the second vacation we have planned through Judi. After both planning trips on our own and using a different travel agency there is no question we will be using her from here on out. Judi’s attention to detail, quick response time, and personal touch she gives to us every step of the way is outstanding. We feel fortunate that Judi is our travel agent. It truly has made vacation planning easier, and the actual trips themselves more enjoyable.

Destination Wedding Success!

For my destination wedding in the Dominican Republic, I wanted to do the least amount of planning possible. I wanted somebody to do all the work and just tell me what to do. That's exactly what Judi did. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to get it all set up. She always got back to me right away anytime I had a question, as well as my guests. I never had to worry about anything. I would definitely go through her again for my next trip and would recommend her to anybody.

Always a Fun destination

Reviewed By Over the blue ocean - Waterloo, Iowa | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
Judi is very prompt and works hard. She will always find the best price available without taking away the extra amenites. Always looking for something out of ordinary which I like. We've traveled in groups and just the two of us.

The trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Natasha W - Reinbeck, IA | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Judi was most helpful to us. We'd become overwhelmed trying to wade thru all the vacation options on our own. We reached out to Judi with our preferences for a trip, and she quickly narrowed it down for us. She helped us come to a decision in a matter of a couple days, and it was all taken care of in a timely manner. Our trip couldn't have gone smoother, but it could've gone a lot worse had we not had Judi's help!

The best travel agent

Reviewed By Beno - Waterloo, IA | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Judi always works hard to get our flights arranged so we arrive at our destination early and so our departure for home is not too early. She remembers little things I like such as curtains around the bed. I have a handicap and she makes sure I have help at airports, and even got us seats with extra legroom on all our flights on our last trip. She goes the extra mile and includes many personal touches.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Perfectly Perfect

Reviewed By DaneTheyCute - Waverly, IA | Traveled to Ocho Rios ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
My husband and I have weird work hours between the two of us. Its almost never possible to meet up with anyone during normal business hours, but Judi made that very simple. We chatted on the phone and over email, and she was ok with the different hours we had. She took our crazy not knowing what we wanted to do exactly ideas and put them into something that we will remember forever.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
