Great Honeymoon to Morocco and Spain!

Reviewed By Ian & Meredith - Romeoville, IL | Traveled to Morocco ~ Africa
Yamonee was great to work with. She helped us from start to finish and got us everything we asked for in our honeymoon well within our budget. We knew we wanted to go to Morocco for adventuring and then to relax on the beach somewhere. We had a great time riding camels into the desert in Morocco and ended up on a beach in the south of Spain for our last few days. It was an amazing experience and we will definitely be working with Yamonee again on our future travels.

Once in a lifetime trip

Reviewed By Tala - Plantation, Florida | Traveled to South America
In March 2019, my husband and I, as well as 4 other family members/friends went on a once in a lifetime, month long trip to Ecuador, Galapagos, Peru and Chile. We contacted our travel agent, Yamonee Barboro, to plan our trip. She was a true professional and and worked with us to plan all the details of our trip in a short time, keeping in mind our budget. She booked our flights, hotels, train, transfers and guided tours.

In Galapagos, we had a friendly and knowledgeable guide, at every stage of time there. In Peru, we visited Puno/Lake Titicaca. We also went to Cusco and Machu Picchu, which was the highlight of our trip.

Our trip ended with a relaxing cruise from San Antonio, Chile to Miami, Florida.

Thanks to Yamonee for making this trip a truly memorable experience. !

It was the holiday of a lifetime

Reviewed By Andromeda - Basingstoke, UK | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Yamonee had a lot of great ideas for additional trips ie Denali NP, the artic circle Banff and Jasper national Park,.to name a few. Nothing was too much for Yamonee and she, catered to our requirements perfectly, very hardworking and she wanted to make sure that this trip was the best and she wanted everyone to just have a great time. Yamonee is very knowledgeable about the places we could go to visit in the region so we did not miss out on anything. so she took care of the planning of the trip which made it an easy hassle free experience. The cruise was absolutely amazing, we saw so many beautiful sights including glacires, whales dolphins and seals on ice floes the food was very varied and wonderful. The company was great it was a lovely group and mum and I have made new friends on this trip. Yamonee made it a trip of a lifetime. She is a very warm and friendly person and by the end of the trip she became good friends with mum and myself. I am planning my next trip

A Granddaughter's Dream Vacation

Reviewed By Dianne - Chicago | Traveled to Galapagos Islands ~ Ecuador ~ South America
Yamonee is the best travel agent ever! She pays attention to every detail and tailors her trips to the needs and wishes of her clients. In this case, the trip was planned as a gift for my 10-year-old granddaughter, a born naturalist whose #1 dream was to visit the Galapagos. She knew every creature she wanted to see and Yamonee planned a trip that made sure we saw them all.
There was a guide to meet us at every stage of the adventure, the perfect amount of "down time" to do our own exploring, and the accommodations were excellent. When I became ill we had to cancel one leg of our trip, which incurred medical expenses and required me to book a hotel that was not included in our package. Yamonee stepped right in and filed the insurance claim to reimburse me for the extra expense. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Yamonee.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Yamonee Barboro responded:
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to book you, your daughter and grand daughter for their spring break in the Galapagos. It's an area that I am proud to sell and make travel dreams come true.

Walked with the Gods and Pharohs!!!!!

Reviewed By Margene - Mundelein | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
Yanomee fulfilled my dream and trip of a lifetime, by planning my trip to Greece and Egypt. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable. One of the guides in Egypt was a graduate in Egyptology of Cairo University! So going though the National Museum in Cairo was great as our guide showed us all the highlights and explained the exhibits.. Accommodations were fantastic and so was the food on both cruises. The accommodations on the Nile cruise was fantastic as there was only 135 passengers, which I prefer. All the tours had great guides and fluent in English and the native language. It was a trip of a lifetime and I look forward to Yamonee plan my next bucket list trip!!!!

Yamonee Barboro responded:
Thanks for allowing me to plan the Greece and Egypt trip to Athens, Santorini, Mykonos, Crete, Cairo, Luxor etc. It was a pleasure doing it.

Choose the right person to make your plans.

Reviewed By Patrick W. - Warrenville, IL | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Yam was so helpful from the start, crafting our honeymoon to Hawaii to perfectly fit what we wanted to do. She was happy and willing to make a number of edits along the way while planning. Unfortunately, the weather had other plans and we were caught in Hawaii during Hurricane Lane. Yam spent 3 straight days helping us plan our way to get out early before the hurricane hit. She answered all our messages and made sure we were safe. She was so helpful from start to early finish and beyond!

Yamonee Barboro responded:
Thanks very much for your time to write this testimonial about your honey trip to Hawaii. I customize my clients' trips and take care of them from the time they leave until they return as you experienced. I look forward to working with you again under better circumstances.

Unforgettable trip

Reviewed By Moe - FL | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
I went to Australia, New Zealand. I saw her professionalism when our flights
were cancelled due to a typhoon in Japan. We had to wait 4 days for another flight and she rearranged the tours, hotels and 10 flight segments. I later went to India with her and that trip was well planned too. She is certainly knowledgeable with travel.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed Australia and New Zealand. It was fun visiting the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, Melbourne, The Great Ocean Road, Christ Church, Queenstown and the Milford Sound Fjords.

The easist way to vacation!

Reviewed By Kaili and David Kaminski - Elmhurst, IL | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Yam has planned two getaway vacations for my husband and I this past year. First was a trip to the beautiful island of Dominican Republic in April of 2017, she suggested a resort based on our interest, and guided us towards options that fit our budget, and the way we like to relax while on vacation. We had a blast, we fit it in our budget, and we honestly didn't have to think of a single thing, as she took all the hassle out of the planning. We were so thrilled with our trip, that when it was time to plan a late summer quick getaway, we called her once again. Not having a location in mind, she selected a few options that fit within our budget, and our interests. We were so impressed with her ability to take the planning off our shoulders, match us with the perfect vatations, and helping to make sure we were completely taken care of from start to finish, that our late summer getaway was completely relaxing.

We can't wait to engage Yam once again for this year's family vacation

I found Yamonee to be a delight to work with. She is very knowledgeable and resourceful. She found us great prices for our Carnival cruise and our flights. She also found excursions that were that were fairly priced and were top notch.
We used the Tour Excursion Group for our excursion in Cozumel. I lost my phone and Gabriel from the excursion company went above and beyond to get my phone shipped back to me. I just received it yesterday safe and sound!
