My dad inspired my passion for traveling by taking me to St. Louis's Lambert Airport numerous times as a child. He owned a business there and during his free time we'd watch the planes take off. Traveling became exciting to me and in 1976 I got my first job in the industry. I quickly advance my career earning a diploma as a Certified Travel Counselor in 1978.

Hello TIna! It was absolutely wonderful, the weather was perfect, the service, and the food didn't change at all-still amazing! As soon as they entered our names in to the system they said: You guys are returned clients so we will upgrade you to a better room, and they did thanks to you notifying the resort! They gave us our usual partial ocean view room on the third floor right above the stores. We had a fantastic time. Thank you very much!!!

Hey Tina! We had a fabulous time! The resort was divine and probably the best one I have ever been to. Service, second to none! We met a few other couples and we all plan to go back together in 2018! I will keep you posted! Thank you,

Hi TIna! Everything was great!! We loved the hotel you booked us in and enjoyed all the parks. Especially loved adding the Memory Maker to the package. All went good, although I wish it could have been a little cooler-lol! Thank you!

Hi Tina! The trip was great!! Best moments: Walking in the neighborhoods of Tokyo, exploring the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest and lunch at a cafe near the preserved streets in Kyoto; Enjoyed South Korea with the kids; JeJu Island and Buson - beach and walking along the coast to a Temple. Seoul was fun - great food and after a few days, I mastered the metal chopsticks! You know us, we like the outdoors - forest, beaches, and such so we had a blast!! Thank you again for planning our trip!

Hi Tina! Thank you for checking in with us. We had an amazing time in Europe! I think the few days in Barcelona and the cruise were the perfect way to see the sites over there for the first time. We were very pleased with our accommodations and the ship. We definitely want to go back and see more! Thank you for arranging everything. We will contact you when we are ready for more! Best regards!

Dear Tina, We are back from vacationing in Cabo San Lucas and had an amazing time!! First time in Cabo and won't be the last time. Will have to say the waves did knock us down a few time on the beach but needless to say we did spend more time at the pools on this trip. Did enjoy our boat ride to the arch, few trips to downtown Cabo which was only a 10 minute walk from our resort. All inclusive is the only way to go. Lucked out with the weather too. I really enjoyed our resort. Spacious rooms and also had the many pools to swim in along with amazing views of the ocean and never a complaint about the food... everything was perfect! Thank you again Tina!

Hi Tina, Just wanted to thank you again for our amazing vacation. We had such a great time and made friends with all the staff. We did one excursion where we swam with the dolphins and climbed Dunn's River Falls. Everything went smoothly the whole vacation and it only rained for about an hour one of the days we were there! Thanks for taking care of scheduling everything - you are great at what you do! One question - do you do any continental us travel? We are looking at maybe something for December the week before Christmas to a beach area with two friends. Just curious if you could find any good deals for us! Thanks again, Heather

Hi Tina, We had a great time and loved the resort! I don't know really if we received any perks for being on our honeymoon but we did get champagne when we arrived! We loved everything about the resort! Only thing we might try different next time is a destination where the ocean water is more calm. But other than that it was great!! We are ready to book another trip soon!

Thanks Tina, We had an amazing time! The resort was incredible. The service was fantastic and the food was out of this world. Everything you planned for us went exactly as expected and we enjoyed it all. I'd have to say we both agreed our favorite part was spending time in the town of Lahaina and going to the luau. Such a cool town. The road to Hana was a close second. Thank you again for everything you did for us, we really appreciate it! Thanks again,

Dear Tina, It was amazing! I am so glad we stayed in the Ocean Point. Everyone was wonderful and the customer service was the best I have ever had. The restaurants on the resort had great food, good choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner so there were a ton of options for all meals. We used the 24 hour room service a ton and it was always quick and correct. The two pools for the adults only were beautiful and the resort was so clean and well kept. Even the security hired by the resort were extremely helpful. I would give this resort and St. Maarten a 10 of 10! Thank you for all of your help.

Hi Tina; Everything was so amazing on that ship! The food was amazing and there were so many options to choose from. Nick enjoyed the sushi place and the cafe was nice for lunch. We stayed away from the Windjammer because it was also so crowded. We really enjoyed the nightlife, always something to do. My favorite show was the water show, that was pretty amazing. We enjoyed to hang out at the Irish bar where we found our favorite bartender there and the live band was always good. All the stops we took were amazing, my favorite was our trip to Trunk Bay, that was AMAZING!! Nick's favorite was the Maho beach...surprise haha!! It was an amazing trip and thanks for all of your help again!

Tina- Thank you so much for meeting with me today. You are absolutely a star at your job! Thank you so much for all the details of our up coming stay. Your information was so helpful. It was great getting reacquainted again and we wil be looking forward to working with you in the up coming trips. Take care and I will let you know how the trip goes! We just returned and everything was awesome! My kids loved it! It was a great time for bonding. We did 2 excursions and 2 spa treatments and Tara hit the salon to have her nails done. The food was spectacular the surroundings and upkeep were pristine and the hospitality was above and beyond. Only thing that was missing was a few more days there. Lol! Thanks for all your help.

Tina, We had a wonderful time on the river cruise and we loved seeing all the different sights. Vienna and Budapest were particularly beautiful and interesting but it was also nice just to watch the countryside from our veranda as the ship sailed along. Viking had a nice little celebration for our anniversary which I know you arranged! The wait staff sang a song for us, and the chef made us a delicious mango-flavored cake for dessert. Everything went well, and all of the crew on the ship were very friendly and helpful. Mike and I have been telling our friends what a great vacation we had, and if anyone I know wants more information, I'll send them to you. You not only did an excellent job of making arrangements, but also keeping us informed throughout the whole process. Thanks for all your help setting up our trip. It was great!

Hi Tina! We had an amazing time in Jamaica! The hotel exceeded our expectations, the room was great with an awesome view of the ocean thanks to you! I will miss waking up to that everyday. The staff at the hotel was great, everyone was so nice and helpful. We did not end up doing any excursions and just enjoyed our time at the resort. We did book a couples massage which was one of the best we have had and also booked a romantic dinner on the beach which was incredible! Thank you again for all your help in booking our honeymoon!!

Hi Tina! I was planning on emailing you to tell you that we had such a fantastic time! We loved it so much-very very pleased with the Dominican and the resort, the staff and food was wonderful!

Everything went smooth and I cant wait to go back!!

Thanks Tina! We had a fantastic time in Punta Cana! We love the resort you recommended! We were upgraded to the V.I.P. section of the resort which had its own private pool and bar. Thanks for calling the resort for us. Amazing room and place. We enjoyed all the specialty restaurants without having to make dinner reservations plus my husband was able to wear shorts for dinner too! The buffet breakfasts were delicious-fresh mangos every morning and omelettes made the way you want them. All the shows were very good especially Michael Jackson show and the International show. Sunshine everyday except one day. The beach was beautiful with plenty of chairs. Never had to fight for a chair. We had a great time and the landscaping was beautiful and kept clean. Thanks again! My next trip I am interested in is Los Cabos!! Keep me posted!

The trip was great-weather perfect! We went snorkeling, camelback riding and took a paddle board out very briefly. The convenience of that marina right next door was great! The food and service were excellent! Thanks so much again for recommending that place!! They also took a tour of the over the water bungalows-they actually gave me the chills!! I was not used to that much opulence. Our room was just steps from the beach and the pool was awesome. Thanks again TIna! Next year we might try staying in one of those bungalows!! Julie

Hi Tina, We had a wonderful time. Eagle beach is the cleanest beach I've ever been to. No smoking at the resort and on the beach except for the designated areas. The resort was spotlessly clean. The staff was superb, I would highly recommend it. They had a bottle of champagne, 2 flutes for us to keep with the resort name on them and cheese and crackers. The food was good. We also had a fabulous dinner at a restaurant recommended by our concierge that was is comparable to Niche. We would like to go back. The weather was great. Thanks again!

Hi Tina, the trip was wonderful and the wedding was beautiful! The weather was perfect as well. We so much enjoyed the week and for so many reasons. I still need to get copies of the photos from Sophia and will love to share when I do. Thank you for being so efficient and expert to work with—I think destination weddings are the way to go—and will point anyone who's considering one your way!

My husband and I booked our Honeymoon at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic through our wonderful travel agent Tina Kennedy. She was extremely helpful by providing us with brochures to select the best destination and she set everything up so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. It was so nice and reassuring to know that everything from airfare to transportation to lodging was already taken care of. I would highly recommend Tina Kennedy for all of your traveling needs; she will go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied. We had such an amazing and unforgettable experience that I will definitely be in touch with her to book any of my future trips!

The most amazing Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Blake B. - St. Louis, MO | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
We had a great experience with Tina. She helped us plan our honeymoon to Maui and we knew nothing about the island. She was very helpful giving us the best hotel options and popular areas to stay. She also had great suggestions on what kind of activities there were available on the island and planned the ones we chose to do for us. Every time the airlines made changes in our flight times she was very prompt in updating us with the change. Upon arrival to the resort everything went exactly as we planned. There were no misunderstandings or miscommunications. This is the kind of experience you hope for when using a travel agent! We couldn't have been happier with the entire experience and would recommend Tina to anyone. We will definitely be using her services again in the future!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Thank you Hayley & Blake for taking the time to submit my review and to express such kind words about your recent experience.
