Trips of a Lifetime

Reviewed By Haley - Columbus, Ohio | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
We have now booked two trips through Monica and both were excellent! She suggested both locations and we could not have picked better places on our own. She does not miss a detail and ensures every step of your trip goes flawlessly. I can not say enough to truly capture how great Monica is. All of our big trips will be planned through her!

Amazing Honeymoon!

Monica did an amazing job helping my wife and I plan an amazing honeymoon in St. Lucia. Monica took the time to understand what we were envisioning as the perfect getaway and delivered to us multiple options. From there she helped us sort through all her suggestions to find the perfect resorts for us. We couldn't have been more happy with how everything turned out!

Thanks Monica!

Reviewed By Nikki - Florida | Traveled to Mexico
Monica helped us plan not 1, but 2 honeymoons due to a postponement of our wedding in 2020. Both times she was super responsive and gave us many options based on what we were looking for. She always made herself available to answer questions. While on our trip she was also very helpful in getting certain things arranged so we didn't have to worry about them. So glad we used her as it made our trip so much smoother than if we would have tried to do it ourselves.

Amazing Experience with Monica!

Reviewed By Mia - Bowie, Ms | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Monica was PHENOMENAL. Not only did she help me decide where I want to go, she also gave suggestions based off of places she has traveled. She took care over everything for my vacation. And when flights got delayed and pushed back, she adjusted our trip with not problem. What impressed me the most was how she booked my excursions and transportation. Additionally, she provided very specific travel documents. I don’t know how she does it, but man she is GOOD. I had no worries with this travel experience. She was readily available for the entire trip in case anything went wrong.

Our Fantastic 40th Wedding Anniversary!!

Reviewed By Barbara Leirer - Birmingham, AL | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
She was SO PATIENT while we were trying to figure out where we wanted to go. She sent us plenty of information about many different resorts and she had the first hand knowledge to be able to speak on these resorts. She had special tidbits of information that really helped to make our trip most enjoyable. I was able to call her from the resort to ask her opinion about an excursion. I knew she was always just a phone call away. I highly recommend Monica and we look forward to calling her again for our next trip!

Unforgettable Greece Adventures!

Reviewed By Sandra T - Budd Lake, New Jersey | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
A close friend of ours recommended Monica to help us plan our trip to Greece. Words cannot express how fantastic it was to work with Monica! She was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and covered every important detail of the short 7-day trip that we had scheduled. Since it was our first time visiting Europe, I had so many questions and Monica did not disappoint in always getting back to me with a prompt response. I am also a picky person who second guesses many travel decisions and yet Monica remained super patient with me every step of the way. She organized every detail of our trip to include transportation and transfers (which was my biggest concern). Everything was smooth from the time we arrived in Greece and then in between island hopping. I highly recommend you to have Monica help with your travel planning. You will not regret it!

Best Honeymoon Ever!

Reviewed By Charlie V. - Birmingham, AL | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Monica was fantastic to work with. She was able to put us together several options to choose from, all of which fit our requests. My wife and I wanted to go to an all inclusive resort that included golf. We ended up choosing the Sandals Resort in Exumha, Bahamas. Everything was taken care of by Monica (flight schedule, room requests, transportation to the resort, ocean view, ect.). We could not be happier about our decision to contact Grand Escapes Travel. After planning every detail for the wedding, it was nice not having to plan for our honeymoon.

We couldn't have done this trip without Monica!

Reviewed By Jesse - Lyndhurst, NJ | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
My wife and I had the most amazing honeymoon and it was all thanks to Monica Hawk! With the time we gave her and the budget we had; I'm so impressed with what was able to be accomplished. What I liked most about Monica is that she took the time to know us and understand the type of trips we did in the past. When we first reached out to her we really just wanted an idea of what could be put together for Hawaii. But based on our experience and what we wanted to get out of the trip for our budget she highly recommended Greece. I will say that she nailed it! At first i was concerned with traveling to more than one location within greece that were hours apart by boat/plane/car. But I was so impressed with how seamless everything was! We really felt like we were always in good hands, even in a foreign country, and best of all Monica was always available whenever we reached out via phone/email which definitely made us feel more secure and in good hands. We know we will use her Again!
