Best trip of my life

Reviewed By HYoung - Livermore, CA | Traveled to Ambergris Caye ~ Belize ~ Central America
I've been on some great vacations without ever using a Travel agent so I was hesitant to use for the 1st time.

Michelle was easy to work with and when I told her what I was looking for she immediately ( like 30 seconds) made a suggestion and I went with it!

Michelle's suggestion exceeded my expectations.
On a 1-10, it was a 15!!

I would definatly use her again.

Honeymoon of a lifetime

Reviewed By MNichols - Sacramento, CA | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
Michelle was great to work with, she was on top of everything! When picking a travel agent, it was important to us to find someone who would listen to what we wanted to do and not just the typical things you would do. She really took her time in asking and suggesting activities that were along the lines of what we wanted. The whole trip went perfectly and every we experienced was more than we expected! If you are looking for a well-traveled agent and someone who is looking out for you, she is a MUST go to!

Best Experience in Planning EVER!

Reviewed By Teresa - Sacramento, Ca | Traveled to Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
Michelle is a true example of an all around employee. She takes great pride in her job that shows through all her hard work and positivity. Her incredibly fast responses, paying very close attention to detail, and making this whole experience about my husband and I has shown through this whole process. Michelle helped my husband and I plan the honeymoon of our dreams to Australia. We leave in just a couple days and I have no stress or anxiety because everything has been taken care of well in advance. There is no one else I would trust to ensure the best quality for customer service when planning a dream vacation and I will definitely be using Michelle for all future adventures!

When history came to life!

Reviewed By JR - Hogansville, GA | Traveled to Washington D.C. ~ District of Columbia ~ USA
Michelle is fantastic! She set us up on our D.C. trip and everything was great! Flights, hotel and location, all just fantastic! The only thing that could have made it better was having more time to see all of our Country's history! If you need a trip or vacation book, I highly recommend Michelle.

50th Anniversary Cruise

Reviewed By Martyr Mom - Davis, CA | Traveled to Europe
We have had several different travel agents while working with Davisville Travel. Michelle very kindly (and effortlessly) stepped in when we were part-way through planning our Baltic Cruise with NCL. She found us the least expensive flights, recommended a hotel in Amsterdam which was lovely, and made our journey all the smoother. She had great advice and was good at hand-holding :)

Celebrating the big 25!

Reviewed By Tabitha - Pollock Pines, CA | Traveled to New York City ~ New York ~ USA
I had the pleasure of working with Michelle on my 25th Birthday Celebration Trip to New York City! A few of my girlfriends and I decided we wanted to do something special for our 25th Birthdays as they were all around the same time. Since none of us had yet been to New York, this was an easy decision for us to make! As we had never planned anything so big ourselves, we decided to search around for someone who could help us on our upcoming trip. After searching agency's, we discovered Michelle and her wealth of travel knowledge. Her experience, and the fact that she was close in age, made for an easy decision. She helped us with everything! Flights, hotels, activities, food & so much more! I am planning a trip to Ireland in the next 2 years for my 30th and I know who I will be using. Thank you Michelle!

Extremely Satisfied

Reviewed By Cory - Firth, Nebraska | Traveled to Cayman Islands ~ Caribbean
Over the past two year Michelle has helped me on multiple occasions, from booking short notice hotel rooms, sourcing flights to the Cayman Islands, booking a Jamaican honeymoon for my brother in law and his new wife to helping my wife and I book a week long trip to Roatan and then later helping us cancel the trip once we learned we were expecting our third child. Every time she has helped me with very prompt and friendly service as well as a few times has offered various resort options other than my original request to help us get the best trip possible for the lowest dollar spent. I would/have recommended Michelle to family and friends for their vacation needs and look forward to booking more trips with her in the future.
