Family Fun Vacation

Reviewed By Amy - Monticello, MN | Traveled to Niagara Falls ~ Ontario ~ Canada
We worked with Lori to book a family vacation to Niagara Falls (the Canadian side). She quickly responded to my initial request and asked several follow up questions to make sure she could book a great vacation for us! After showing us several options for places to stay, she also helped us get attractions lined up.

Our trip was wonderful and Lori provided us with lots of ideas of places to visit. She was also great about make sure we had the proper documents for travel with our children over the border.

This was our dream vacation

Reviewed By Terry - Coon Rapids, MN | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Lori is absolutely the best travel agent we have used, and will continue to use her expertise every time we travel. She kept us up to date on all the requirements toc travel on a cruise ship (it was our very first cruise) and the requirements to travel to Canada, so we had everything we needed once we started the trip. Everything went smoothly, thanks to Lori.

Scandinavia Fjords

Reviewed By Delayed Travelers - Chanhassen, MN | Traveled to Norway ~ Europe
Lori did a great job coordinating travel for 4 of us traveling together from two different parts of the county. Our trip was originally planned prior to the Covid pandemic and had to be postponed. Lori seamlessly handled everything while keeping us informed and up-to-date. When we were able to travel again, Lori informed us of what information and requirements were now needed. She rebooked our tour group, airline and airport transportation. While we waited to go on our trip, Lori took time to keep us updated on all the changing covid testing requirements ensuring we would not have any surprises during our travels. She also promptly made sure we received all necessary information from our tour company so we could adequately prepare for our trip.
