Amazing unforgettable vacation

Reviewed By Maisie - Robbinsdale, Minnesota | Traveled to Montego Bay ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Nancy was amazing with helping us decide what country and what resort would be best for our personalities. We changed locations a few times and she was really understanding and patient. If you're looking for someone to do all of the "heavy lifting", Nancy is your lady! She gets everything in order for you. All you have to do is tell her what you like to do and what kind of vacation you're looking for. I will totally recommend Nancy for all of you me traveling needs!

I'm so happy your girlfriend trip turned out so well. As a first time international traveler I wanted your first adventure to go as smooth as possible and helping you with all the steps is why I'm here. It was no problem changing destinations for you - I'm glad you enjoyed Jamaica. Maybe next year I can help you with another warm weather destination. Thanks for the kind words and I look forward to working together again.

A Great Winter Break

Reviewed By Fun Seekers - New Hope, MN | Traveled to Caribbean
Planning our Caribbean cruise with Nancy was a very satisfying experience. She planned our whole trip completely, starting with non-stop airline travel and the type of cruise. She handled details that made the trip a memorable one. Being senior citizens, we appreciated how she handled all the details for us. It made it an easy trip as well.

Nancy does a great job!

Reviewed By Alex - Minneapolis | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
I randomly came across Nancy while searching for a travel agent online. I was booking my honeymoon and really hadn't traveled on my own out of the country before, both my wife & I had only traveled with family, so I was hoping to work with someone who could guide me through things and make me feel comfortable with the process of traveling.

Nancy did exactly that, I asked way too many questions, most of them stupid/obvious but she answered every single one in a clear and prompt fashion, and helped me feel comfortable with the process while helping us find a great place to stay that was within our budget. She even managed to get us 2 FREE days, business class flights & preferred club status at our resort!

We traveled during hurricane season (We got to DR 2 days after Irma hit, and left 1 day before Maria hit), and I would honestly have had a heart attack had Nancy not been emailing me with updates on the weather and letting me know she was paying attention & had a plan for us!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Nancy Winter responded:
Alex it was great working with you and I'm so glad your honeymoon turned out so well. It's the little extras we can provide for our clients at these special times that makes my job worth it. This fall has been quite interesting with all the hurricanes - we haven't had anything like it in years but somehow Punta Cana was spared during your travels. Keeping track of things is what I'm here for. Thank-you so much for your review - I look forward to working with you again!

Fabulous trip

Reviewed By Lori - Crystal, MN | Traveled to Mazatlan ~ Sinaloa ~ Mexico
Nancy did a great job finding us a place in Mexico with all our wish lists and under our budget. She even went the extra mile to find an even less expensive rate using FunJet and helped with our other friend to stay and fly with us at the same time.

I would have liked to see us have seats closer to the front of the plane. Maybe there's no way around it that, but perhaps we could have done that ourselves if we knew that picking seats were available.

We did have a bad experience being dropped off and nobody's fault except the transportation company, but they didn't give us our return packet which contained our return time and date pickup. We did try to contact the transportation company but the area code was not on our trip itinerary. So we contacted Nancy who did give us the area code, but that didn't work on our phones so we had to use the phone at the hotel and pay for it. We did have to make several calls to get things straighten out about pick up times. It wasn't easy.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Nancy Winter responded:
I'm sorry to hear about your return transfer situation - we will make sure that doesn't happen next time. I'm glad you had a good trip otherwise and I hope to work with you on your next warm getaway! Thank you for your kind words.

Long weekend getaway

Reviewed By Suebelle - Maple Grove | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Nancy helped us book a trip to the Rivera Maya and made the process easy and enjoyable. We were using Apple Vacations vouchers and she navigated the redemption process in such an efficient and capable manner that we didn't have to do a thing.
Nancy made sure that we received our travel documents in a timely manner and confirmed that we had everything we needed before the trip. I felt like if we had a problem, Nancy would be very responsive in trying to find a solution. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the resort we had booked and we had a lovely time on our vacation.
We haven't always had great luck with previous agents so working with Nancy was a welcome experience.

SoCal theme parking & Carnival cruising

Reviewed By nightwing89 - Fridley, MN | Traveled to Disneyland ~ California ~ USA
I sent Nancy a list of what I wanted to do on a theme park trip to SoCal with a short cruise for just me and my wife. I had already done quite a bit of research on hotels, airlines and the cruise itself, so I knew what I was looking for and what I should be paying. She was able to take my request and plus things up for us. We got a better hotel and a better airline while still staying within our budget.

She booked everything for us and kept in contact through the whole process, even when I didn't owe her money! It all went really smoothly and I liked being able to pay things off as we went.

Looking forward to dealing with her later this year when we plan a trip to Orlando with the whole family!
