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!

We have booked two diving trips to Mexico through Tina, and every request we had was fulfilled to the smallest detail. We did have problems on our first trip totally unrelated to Tina's assistance, and when we got home and voiced out disappointment, Tina got on the phone.

Customer Testimonials

VIKING RHINE RIVER CRUISE

Hi Tina, Loved everything about it and the weather was perfect for Fall. No favorite port of call but we really loved the day we stayed on the top deck and viewed the scenic middle Rhine. The service was excellent and I couldn't believe a Viking rep was at the airport to help us get our boarding passes! That being said, I will never plan another trip that takes us through the Amsterdam airport - one hour and 40 minutes from checking to gate, but that's not Vikings fault. I hope to do another one someday. Thanks for all your help with this trip!

AMAZING TRIP TO ITALY

Tina, our trip was AMAZING! I gave your email to several people we actually met in Italy (and to another in St. Louis-couple from Sunset Country Club. WE LOVED the cooking classes - both of them! We loved Roberto - our tour guide to the Vatican and the Colosseum. The hotels got better throughout the trip. Probably the least attention to personal service was in Siena (the 5 star one - go figure). But they were all great. We were not able to get tickets in Florence because of our trip to Cinque Terre - but I wouldn't trade that day for any naked statue - LOL! The winery tours and tasting were also wonderful. The two were different from one another -one big and in the family since 1700s and one small one person organic so it was neat to see them both. Every single meal we had was phenomenal and of course the wine - WOW! Thank you! Now I want to take all 4 kids to Sicily to meet Vince's family. They would just love it! Best regards!

AMAZING TRIP

Hi Tina, The trip was amazing! Dominican is a beautiful country. The resort grounds were breathtaking. The staff at Secrets are committed to their customers. We had a butler named Jose who was very nice and always available if we needed something. The extra honeymoon perks were one of a kind! Sheryl was especially surprised with the champagne that was in our room when we arrived as well as the honeymoon ban was laced around our door. Towards the end of the trip, they surprised us again with champagne, chocolate strawberries and I Love U written on our bed made out of rose petals. Scape park was very cool. The nice thing was the fact there were many activities to do. Food was amazing but I definitely ate and drank too much. I gained 10 lbs when I was there! But, hey its a vacation, right! It was very nice working with you. We look forward to contacting you in the future when we are ready for our next trip!

ABSOLUTE BLAST

Hello TIna, Our trip was an absolute blast from the moment we landed in Punta Cana til the flight home! What an amazing resort and a well comforting staff. We did receive your gift and loved it! Everything couldn't have gone more perfect. Brittany and I are already hoping to plan another trip there again. We did do the Scape Park excursion, which is a lot of fun, swimming in the Cenote "Blue Hole" was my highlight. We also did the marinarium excursion which we got to swim with the sharks. We met the other couple you booked there at the same time we were there, Cheryl and Danny from St. Louis and instantly became good friends. Overall it couldn't have gone any better! And I would highly recommend this resort a 5 stars no doubt! Thanks again for all of your help!!

TRIP OF A LIFE TIME!

Good afternoon Tina, Our trip was truly fantastic! That week at Hotel Xcaret was one of the best of my life! In fact, Desiree has already vowed that we "need" to go back with her family and mine next year and that it would even be a wonderful wedding location for us the following year. I am thrilled that her first trip outside of the United States, first long distance trip with just me and her first trip to Mexico were all such positive experiences for her. After scheduling our included excursions we went to the main Market restaurant which really is amazing! We also got to try out the Casa Fuego restaurant . We also went to enjoy the rooftop pool/bar and had it all to ourselves. It is calm and peaceful away from any kids and my parents would have loved it here. The last restaurant was called Las Cuevas, the caves. We got a table right looking out over the water of the river with romantic lit caves stretching out to the other side. Amazing! Thank you for your recommendation

I would definitely recommend Unico for those looking to relax, unwind, and enjoy great food and service! Oh yeah, the weather was mostly sunning and warm with a nice ocean breeze. The evenings cooled down but generally hovered around 80 degrees! Thanks!

GREAT TIMES IN Punta Cana

YES! We had a great time! The resort was beautiful and modern and the service was absolutely incredible. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We were assigned our own personal staff member that sent us snacks and champagne to our room several times, unprompted. We went swimming in the pool around 1a.m. no one else was out at all and a staff member came by and asked if there was just the two of use and he came back with warm beach towels and two bottle waters for us! I would absolutely recommend Secrets Cap Cana for an adult getaway and I would love to take my mom there too. Thank you!

FABULOUS TIME IN ITALY

Tina, We had a fabulous time! Thank you! We were pleased with our accommodations. You placed us in some nice hotels! We loved sightseeing in Rome, tasting the gelato, seeing Trevi Fountain, the Vatican, Colosseum and Forum were amazing! The Holy steps were a powerful experience and of course the piazzas crazy traffic, quaint allies, pizzas, wine, etc. each part of the trip was exciting. I thought of you so much in Venice. It really is a unique city and yes, romantic. We enjoyed the gondola-a must do Venice experience. We even saw a funeral with a casket being transported in a boat. Don't see that in St. Louis! Our Backroads trip was fabulous! They too provided a top notch experience with excellent guides. The accommodations were wonderful and every meal was an event, in an awesome setting, rather it be a restaurant, winery or a picnic in the hills of Tuscany. The hikes also varied a lot which was fun. Thank you!

GREAT TRIP TO SEE THE ROMANTIC ROAD

Hi TIna, Yes it was such a great time. It is hard not to write a book about our experiences. We went to several of the castles along the way and we also went to the Black Forest. We wound up buying a cuckoo clock from there. The night watchmen tour in Rothenburg was awesome! The tour guide/owner was very unique and funny. We ventured around each stop as much as possible. It was exhausting, but so much fun. W really loved Fussen and being able to see the Alps from our hotel. The architecture in Germany is so amazing! On Friday we met our friend Peter and stayed with his family in Lichtenau. It was so beautiful up there. We also walked around Buren and Paderborn on Saturday and had a blast. A very memorable vacation. Thank you so much.

JAMAICA HONEYMOON

Hi Tina, Jamaica was beautiful and our resort bad to the bone! Service was great, food was great, spa was great and room just as pretty as the pictures in a brochure! I'd go back every week if I had the money to! I really liked how quiet our resort was compared to neighboring properties; it made for a more enjoyable honeymoon. Thanks again!

RIVER CRUISING

Hi Tina, We got in late Saturday night and were happy to be home, but we had the time of our lives on the river cruise. AMAWaterways was so good to us and the whole experience was everything we hoped for and more. We had the time of our lives and it far exceeded our expectations! Thank you!

GREEK ISLANDS CRUISE

Tina, We had a great time! The trip was wonderful and the weather could not have been better! Rome was beautiful and the hotel was so easy to get to the Vatican. We ended up taking the tour Monday morning with Royal to the Sistine chapel and loved it!! The Jewel of the Seas was excellent! Service and staff excellent! Thank you for everything!!

WONDERFUL TRIP TO ITALY & SICILY

Bon Journo Tina, What a wonderful trip!! So many beautiful cities and wonderful things to see. We definitely have called it a trip of a lifetime! Thank you for everything you did to make it such a wonderful experience. As for details of what we liked, I would say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. As we went to each city, it was "this is the best" only to go the next city and say "no" this is the best". What a problem to have! We had an amazing trip and you did a fantastic job for us. We couldn't be happier and are telling all of our friends what a great job you and Journey did for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you as they say in Italy Ciao!

THE MOST UNFORGETTABLE HONEYMOON

Hello Tina, Italy was absolutely beautiful!! All the cities were absolutely beautiful in their own way! I think we agree that Venice was our most favorite city because of the beautiful San Marco square, Murano Island, and the uniqueness of having only boats as a means of transportation. All the excursions were great...we honestly can't pick one to say it was our favorite because all of them were perfect! We loved the Vatican tour seeing the Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica brought tears to our eyes...the Amalfi Coast seeing the beautiful view from Positano was amazing! And to end the trip with a lovely gondola ride with everyone recording and taking pictures was priceless! Thank you again Tina for making this dream come true! Tina, you personally have made sure this trip was the best honeymoon we could ever asked for!! Best regards,

FAVORITE MEXICAN DESTINATION

Hi Tina, Cabo was AMAZING!! We actually just stuck around the resort and we didn't go downtown at all but it was perfect! It poured the first day but nice the rest of it, the pools were great, service was great, and food was great. The only unfortunate thing was that the Hibachi place only had 3 tables so it was extremely difficult to get a reservation. We wee able to sit on the regular seated side and loved the food, but we were said it wasn't possible to experience the hibachi. Other than that, it was wonderful and couldn't have asked for a better time! Thank you so much for setting it all up and can't wait to go back! :)

Wonderful family vacation

Hi Tina, Our trip was fantastic! Had a great time! Breathless was very beautiful. The beach was very nice, got to enjoy it for a few days til the hurricane came, category 2 so they roped off the beach but nonetheless we enjoyed the pools, both the quiet and the loud. Met so many wonderful people. Went on a boat ride to the arch, did the pub crawl. My daughter Serena & Seema had a blast! The food was fantastic at the resort. We loved it that we did not have to reserve, can walk right on in and get waited on. Very friendly staff. We went to Kibbeh twice (the Mediterranean one) west to Spumante and also Fish Nets. All were excellent! We took a cab to a Mexican restaurant called Maria Jimenez. Authentic Mexican food. Also loved the fact that downtown Cabo was only about a 10 minute walk. Overall wonderful trip! Impressed with Breathless! Thanks again for arranging the rooms to be next to each other. That worked out well.

WONDERFUL TIME IN CABO

Hi Tina! We had a wonderful time! The resort surprised us with champagne one evening and then another night decorated our room and bed with rose petals, candles, filled the jacuzzi tube, it was so nice! Thanks for the extra perks! The room was fantastic! We petted the dolphins and did the sunset cruise, which was terrific. We sent to the spa and did a couples massage and hydrotherapy, then went another day to do it all over again. It was so relaxing. Food was good, Thanks so much for the great care you took of us! I am handing out your business cards to everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Thanks so very much

Huatulco, Mexico Vacation

Hello! We had a great time. The food was good. The service was great. Once again we got the preferred amenities. Lol! I didn't use the spa. We did the 7 Bay Tour that was nice. I did the turtle release. It was amazing!! I would highly recommend it. I got to see the mamas laying the eggs also. I went into town for shopping and it was very nice. The taxi driver stayed with me and took me to stores that had the things I wanted. He was a sweetie! Only downside was the layout of the resort was weird. You had to take elevators to the beach and for dinner but that is because Secrets is built on the cliff side where we spent hours watching the amazing views from our room. Can't wait for Secrets Cap Cana!!

FAMILY HOLIDAY

Hi Tina! Our trip was wonderful! The staff was so helpful and attentive. Our views from the rooms were amazing and our rooms were just a few rooms apart from each other thanks to you! The hotel rooms were super nice! They now have a pizza oven by the pools which I think might have been the extra restaurant they recently added to the resort. Thank you so much for making sure we were taken care of! Our mom and dad had a fantastic time and couldn't stop raving about it! Thanks again!

WONDERFUL TIME!

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!!!

DISCOVERING JAPAN & SOUTH KOREA

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!

WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE

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!

DISCOVERING CABO SAN LUCUS

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!

HONEYMOON IN JAMAICA

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

HONEYMOON

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!

HONEYMOON IN PARADISE

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,

ST. MAARTEN

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.

ADVENTURE ON HARMONY OF THE SEAS

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!

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.

EUROPEAN RIVER CRUISING

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!

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!!

SUMMER VACATION IN PUNTA CANA

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!

Karisma Gourmet Inclusive Resorts

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

ONE HAPPY ISLAND-ARUBA

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!

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!
