Amazing beyond belief

Reviewed By Mussmann Couple - Cedar Rapids, Iowa | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Kelsey worked very hard from the moment I contacted her to find my husband and I the perfect getaway to celebrate our anniversary. She sent me several options and worked with me to customize exactly what I wanted. When the threat of the hurricanes were happening she kept a close eye on things and put our mind at ease. When we arrived home she made sure the trip was everything we hoped it would be. Will definitely book a getaway with her again!!

Family Wedding Travel is a Success!

Reviewed By Mary - Walford, Iowa | Traveled to Los Angeles ~ California ~ USA
Kelsey is very personable, but more importantly, she is knowledgeable in the travel industry. Her communication is quick and effective, and her attention to detail is spot on. Coordinating 3 families tickets for a family event was too much for us to take on alone, and Kelsey executed is flawlessly.

The best trip ever!!!!

Reviewed By CAB - Cedar RAPIDS, IA | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
Kelsey was awesome to work with for our trip. She was very patient since this was the first time my husband and I were going to travel out of the country. We had lots of questions and she answered everyone in a timely manner. She prepared us for everything, down to the color of shirt out driver would meet us at the airport. We felt safe and well informed and new Kelsey was watching out itinerary the entire trip if we had any last minute changes. We went hurricane Harvey & Irma hit Texas & Florida so we had lots to think about but didn't spend a minute worrying because we knee Kelsey had us covered. When we travel again, Kelsey will be doing our trip for sure. Thank you, Kelsey for everything!

Kelsey planned perfect trip.

Reviewed By Wendy - Marion Iowa | Traveled to West Palm Beach ~ Florida ~ USA
I was going to the west palm beach for a wedding during spring break and didn't want to room in hotel with collage spring breakers. Kelsey found the perfect hotel for me. Just perfect for me. All the guests were in this area for other reasons. In fact other guest of the wedding booked at another hotel that was loud, not as nice and they had to pay about $30.00 more a night.

One of the best trips we've taken! So much fun!

Reviewed By Country Travelers - Luzerne, IA | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
My husband and I have wanted to take a trip to Alaska for some time now, so we contacted Kelsey Gerhold with Destinations Unlimited. Kelsey went ABOVE and BEYOND to make certain our trip was everything we had hoped for. She made all the arrangements for our hotel stays, our week aboard a cruise ship, and finally transportation via charter bus to our train excursion. Everything was so well organized by Kelsey, we were never left wondering what we were to do next as she had it all taken care of! One additional thing, we needed to end our trip a day early, which meant a change in our flight. We contacted Kelsey to see if this was possible and within 30 minutes she had everything taken care of so we could fly home sooner. In closing, we would highly recommend Kelsey to anyone who is wanting to plan a vacation. She is truly the best travel agent we've ever worked with. Thank you Kelsey for all you did for us!

Just another trip

Reviewed By the2cooks - Cedar Rapids Iowa | Traveled to Las Vegas ~ Nevada ~ USA
Kelsey was fine to work with. She got our flights, shuttle and hotel booked for our trip and we took care of the rest. We booked our flight later than we usually do so seats were probably limited. On the way home, we were able to trade seats with another passenger so that we could sit in the same row instead of middle seats in different rows. We prefer to get aisle seats on the larger planes as we HATE middle seats. Other than that, the only issue we had was the 3+ hours of layover in Denver on the way home. We spent more time waiting in the airports than we did actually flying.
