Fun with Friends vacation

Trip was absolutely fantastic. Absolutely worth it and wonderful! The resort was outstanding! It was a little frustrating not being able to get in to restaurants (wait times of over an hour) so by default went to buffet -which was very good, but only had 2 non-buffet meals due to the inconvenience. One awesome gesture they did to accommodate our large group was on our last night with 14 there they set up a huge table just outside of the Italian restaurant. We had such a great time that we found out we had a reputation of the “Minneapolis” group by the last couple days. I would go back to this resort! Top notch!

Group Travel Success!

The trip couldn't’ have been any more awesome. Secrets Capris .... The food, and service was awesome…. The fitness center is huge, and they had crossfit classes, yoga, all kinds of things. Seriously, it was by far my most favorite hotel and I’ve been to the Secrets Silver Sands, Moon/Sun and Cancun palace and a few others……We would totally go back there in a heartbeat. Loved it!!! You were awesome. We will let you know what we want to do for our next adventure. It will most likely be an annual event going forward. Thank you for everything!

Two flawless vacations to Mexico!

Reviewed By Karen - Rogers,MN | Traveled to Cozumel ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
From booking pre travel to post travel she was excellent. We have booked with her twice and each time was perfect! Both vacations were to Mexico and she is very knowledgeable about trip planning! She is extremely easy to work with and always responds to inquiries in a very timely manner! She made us aware of the transfers so our ride to the resort and back was pleasurable! She mailed us travel itineraries prior to departure again made the travel flawless. Our first booking was for a family of 14 from 2 different departing airports and we had NO issues. She is great to work with and dependable! I would recommend Louann to any traveler!

Best travel agent ever!

Reviewed By hollyc - Lake Park, MN | Traveled to Cabo San Lucas ~ Baja California Sur ~ Mexico
Louann is awesome to work with! She's very responsive to messages and has always been extremely patient with me when I am looking for vacation options. I tend to be picky about a lot of details :)

With each vacation we have booked, she has always made up a nice packet with all of our necessary trip information enclosed. As a bonus she has always given us a gift showing her appreciation to us! Although I never expect it, I always wonder what clever surprise she has included for us!

She's also great about checking in with us before we leave to make sure we have all our questions answered and are set to go. I would HIGHLY recommend Louann and always pass her name along to our friends and family looking to book a vacation.

Awesome Jamaica trip

Reviewed By Barb - Stewart Mn | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Louann was awesome. She went out her way to make sure our group was
taking care of. She worked with the vendors booking excursions and made sure we had the best deal. Louann made some changes to our resort to our advantage. She was prompt in making sure we were all notified and agreed on the changes. When we arrived at the resort she worked with the receptionist to make sure we were getting the rooms we requested. Numerous times she would ask us if we were having fun and if there were any concerns or questions we had.
I most certainly would recommend Louann to my friends and family!

Awesome awesome awesome!!!!!!!!

Reviewed By Kyle o - Lake Park Minnesota | Traveled to Montego Bay ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Louann was very patient with our requests and inability to make a decision on where exactly wanted to go until that time came when we narrowed it down to Jamaica and once again the inability to deciding which resort to stay at and which excursions to go on after all was said and done the trip was planned out was an effortless trip and extremely fun. I would recommend louann to any and all my friends and family for booking vacations and travel. Her knowledge of the vacation packages, her patience in the search stages of the vacations and the final last minute questions all added up to a memorable vacation. Sam and I cannot express enough how happy we were with her services and we'll look forward to using her again for our next greatest Adventures

Absolutely Amazing Trip!

Reviewed By JHale - Baxter, MN | Traveled to Ocho Rios ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
We were invited to a destination wedding in Jamaica and the bride had picked LouAnn for the travel agent. We couldn't have asked for a better agent, LouAnn was so pleasant, easy to ask questions of and always got us our receipts promptly. Never having been on a vacation before, LouAnn answered lots of my "silly" questions and was always nice when doing so. I would receomment LouAnn to anyone planning a vacation of any kind. We discussed doing another vacation in 2 years and LouAnn will be the first person I contact to work with! From start to finish, LouAnn was there for us!
