Customer Testimonials

Avalon European River Cruise

The trip was fabulous! They are so organized with everything. We did all the city tours that were offered and the one extra tour in Amsterdam. All of the tour guides really knew their stuff. The tours were informative and you learned a lot. After the city tours they gave you free time to do what you wanted. When you left on a tour they had water for you and when you returned to the boat they had juice and a wash cloth for you. You never felt rushed or overwhelmed. They offered a tasting menu for dinner and a grill lunch where you had to sign up because seating was limited. The food was very good but it was more Americanized. Every single person on the boat was very, very nice. Happy hour every day where drinks were only $4. The crew put on a show one night and it was hilarious! I can't say one thing bad about it but if I had to pick one thing it would be to have bigger glasses in the lounge for ice tea. We would take another cruise and would highly recommend it.

Anniversary Trip at The El Dorado Royale Mexico

Hi Maggie, It was a wonderful trip. Everything worked out perfectly! We stayed on property the whole time, just relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful weather. They are building what will be the “world’s largest” man-made coral reef so they have blocks that are in the process of sinking into the ocean to form the foundation. It hindered the ocean view and will for about six months, but the end result will be a wonderful addition to the property. They have new restaurants that have opened, the Santa Fe Restaurant was our favorite! Thank you for helping us get this planned so quickly, Maggie! We will be contacting you again for our future trips!

Awesome experience

Reviewed By Rock n son - St. Paul, MN | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
My son and I had never been out of North America. We planned a trip to Costa Rica and was going to meet up with a friend that lived there.
Within days of our arrival, our friend had an unexpected emergency outside of Costa Rica and was unable to meet with us.
I reached out to Ms. Knuteson and she put together a vacation package that knocked our socks off.
The hotel, was magnificent, the food fantastic and seemed to be never ending.
We toured the Arenal Volcano, Tabacon Hot Springs, rainforest via tram, hiked ran the zip lines, snorkeled off the Isle of Tortuga and sun bathed on a catamoran
This experience was wonderful, and was all because of the knowledge, expertise and caring of Ms. Knuteson.
We would highly recommend Ms. Knuteson for all of your travel needs.
Signed,
Rock n son

A true travel professional

Reviewed By Bob - Bayport, MN | Traveled to Mexico
Maggie is our exclusive travel agent and planner for our family trips. She is very responsive to our requests, makes herself available at all times and goes out of her way to offer the best and most cost effective activities and alternatives to our itinerary to make our entire travel experience the very best possible. She communicates all options and costs clearly so there are no surprises and is always pleasant and tolerant of our frequent changes. In short, we would not consider working with any other travel professional.

Wonderful Trip!

Reviewed By NavyFrank - Luck, WI | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Maggie is a wonderful resource. She follows up with finding out what the needs are that we have, and how she can best fulfill them.
It doesn't matter if it's an individual travel experience, or a group, Maggie worked with us to ensure that every member of our large party was handled with the same amount of first class care.

Even when we had a flaw in our travel arrangements on an out of country trip, when we returned, she worked with the associated services and got our refunds to offset our costs.

Reviewed By Patti - Chaska, Minnesota | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Maggie was wonderful to work with. She helped me plan a trip to Ireland for three people, traveling from three different states in the USA. She was able to secure flight arrangements for all of us to meet in Dublin, Ireland on the same day and close to the same time. Everytime myself or my travel companions had a question or concern about anything, she responded right away and satisfied our request to the best of her ability. Everything was perfect.

Another Hit!!

Reviewed By Porker & Dizz - North St. Paul, MN | Traveled to Mexico
We have worked with Maggie on a number of trips. She knows our likes, dislikes and exactly what we are looking for. We normally go to an all-inclusive in the winter months. Maggie will suggest one she has either been to or has first hand knowledge of. She is always SPOT ON with her suggestions to us and what we are looking for. It's nice to have someone you can depend on when you're booking a vacation.
