Paradise Found In FIJI

You TOO can have this view
You TOO can have this view

Fiji is one of those destinations that was life changing for me.

It wasn't just because of the beautiful beaches and water but, more so the people of Fiji. I was able to tour the Northern Islands specifically and had no idea how this area would differ from the more fast paced area of Nadi.

One of the most memorable experiences was the way guests are greeted at the resorts of the Northern Islands. From the moment the doors open on your vehicle you are welcomed with smiling faces and cheerful songs. The staff also bids farewell in this manner at the end of your stay. I felt welcome the whole time and at every property.

An example of this welcoming feeling is when you were asked "How are you today?" They really wanted to know. The other thing I noticed on more than one occasion was when we were shuttling between local attractions it was a common practice to stop to pick up elderly pedestrians walking along the roadside. There is great respect for the elders of the area.

While staying at the Qamea Resort & Spa on Qamea Island I had the opportunity to visit a local school. We arrived toward the end of the day so, we were able to experience their end of the day routine. Here is where I was reminded of my childhood. The children each had a job to do in the classroom before they were excused to the courtyard. Some were sweeping the floors, some were cleaning chalk boards others were washing windows or stacking chairs. Once they were excused to the courtyard the children lined up single file by grade while the principal discussed the days events. After the principal was done talking the Fiji Scouts (their version of Boy Scouts) lead the group in the pledge of Allegiance to the Fijian Flag followed by the lowering and folding of the flag. Once this was done the children were excused to wait for their boat to bring them back to their village.

It was such a wonderful sight to see all the children running and playing soccer in the courtyard! There were no video games! I left this country feeling a sense of peace and like I was saying farewell to family. I will hold those experiences near and dear to my heart the rest of my life.

We went on a vacation with extended family, and Pam took on all the hassle of trying to coordinate everyone's schedules, etc. She coordinated everything including transfers (including getting the proper car seats for all ages of kids) to hotels and to/from the cruise port, everyone's air travel, getting adjoining rooms on the cruise ship, notifying the airlines and cruise of food allergies, and answering questions on shore excursions. She was great to work with, willing to research/provide a multitude of different options, and always prompt in responding.

Pam listened to us and created a plan that fit exactly what we described and matched our interests perfectly. Over 30 days, everything went like clockwork.

Pam
Here is the testimonial you requested:

We met Pam when we were planning a trip to Italy. She helped us pick out the tour company that met our needs which was Insight. She also booked a rental car for a few day prior to the tour so we could drive around on our own. Then 2 years later she helped us book another Insight Tour to Greece then 10 days on our own to the Amalfi coast in Italy. We have been very happy with Pam's recommendations and help. It so so much easier for the international travel to work with a professional then try to do it on our own. We also recommended Pam to a friend who worked with her to plan their honeymoon in Fiji. We highly recommend Pam Hallberg for your travel needs.

Solid Trip

Reviewed By Italy/Switzerland Trip - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Everything that Pam arranged for us was very nice and we were please with the hotels she recommended. It was also very convenient that all airfare & train tickets were booked by her. However, the planning of the trip did not go as smoothly as I would have hoped. At no point did Pam ever ask us about our budget prior to recommending travel arrangements. I think that is a big part of planning a big trip and the fact that she did not consider what was right for us based on our budget was a red flag. Also about 4 days before we left we realized not all train tickets had been booked so we needed to book them last minute, resulting in extra expedite fees. Not ideal. Again, I'm very happy with the way our trip turned out and feel the accommodations we booked were great, but there were few things that Pam could have improved on.
Pam Hallberg responded:
Thank you for your candid review of my services. If you remember correctly we went back and forth on the planning of your itinerary/tours & accommodations numerous times having to make many adjustments because you did not take my advise to book sooner versus later. I sincerely apologize if you feel this was my error as I am not able to charge you until you give me the go ahead. I am glad to hear that overall, your trip went well.

Not only did Pam provide WAY more value than just a safety net, she went above and beyond when one little glitch did happen (that wasn't her fault). Pam was responsive, fun to work with, knowledgeable, and continually interacted like she really cared about us and our experience! This was my first time using a travel agent, and I will never go back to traveling without Pam's help!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Pam Hallberg

Reviewed By SG - Ham Lake, MN | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Pam has booked trips for us from large group trips for graduations, to special anniversary trips, family vacations and honeymoons! Generally everything has gone great! However when it doesn’t – that is when Pam has been a life saver in helping work though issues and make changes as needed. She also goes the extra mile to help with dinners for special occasions or other excursion recommendations. We wouldn’t book a vacation without calling Pam! Shari and Dave G –Ham Lake MN

Great planner for my 2 week trip to Australia

Reviewed By Dave - Minneapolis, Minnesota | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
Pam was able to create a well-thought-out itinerary for my 2 week trip to Australia in just a couple of days! This was crucial because our trip was coming up quickly so there was plenty of urgency.

The tours and hotels that were chosen by Pam were all wonderful but, in particular, my friend and I very much enjoyed the day trip from Melbourne that included the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island. What an amazing experience that I may never see again.

In closing, I recommend contacting Pam with travel guide requests to Australia.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Pam Hallberg responded:
Thank you again for the opportunity to help you with your trip to Australia. My goal is to help others to see what a magnificent country it is. I'm glad that I was able to help you make lasting memories of a truly beautiful country.

Pam was right on this.

Great Family Memory

Reviewed By Pete and Amy - Minneapolis, Minnesota | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Our experiences with Pam have been positive, professional and patient. Pam planned a trip for our family of four to Jamaica. She worked within our budget and made a plan that would ensure our two adult children enjoyed themselves as much as we did and created a fun family memory. Pam knew the type of hotel transfer to set up for us to maximize our time on the island and at the resort.

Pam also planned a second trip to Jamaica for my daughter and her friends. Again she stayed within their budget and the trip went off with no glitches. They had a fantastic trip.

The patience part comes in when my elderly parents had requested travel information. Pam gave us the requested information in a timely fashion. When they requested different information she happily provided it.

Pam makes travel a vacation instead of work for the traveler. Because Pam listens to what you want, searches for the best offer and gives excellent travel advice we would highly recommend working with Pa
