Amazing Australian Adventure
Our trip to Australia couldn't have been planned any better. With only 8 days to spend in the country, Ann made sure that all of our requests were met and she even offered suggestions for a few things we didn't think of. A seaplane flight over Heart Reef in the Great Barrier Reef with a (safe) water landing to spend the afternoon on Whitehaven Beach was the highlight of the trip especially for our son.

She also suggested we change our itinerary to end our time in Sydney so we were able to enjoy the start of the Vivid Festival which was amazing to see. All the lights, the music and art was incredible to experience in person.

Thank you Ann for making our Australian Adventure one to remember! Looking forward to going back to see more.

Most fantastic summer vacation!
It was such a pleasure working with Ann on our trip to London and Paris this summer. We didn't have the time to plan out our trip so Ann asked us a few questions regarding what we wanted to do in London and Paris, what type of accommodations we were looking for, and what our budget was. Once we sent her this information, she planned out every detail of the trip for us! She also made sure we had the proper documentation for the trip, as well as transportation for every adventure we did, as well as detailed instructions on how to get to the correct transportation. I didn't have to worry or think about a thing! Ann picked the most reputable companies for each excursion and we had zero issues will there. My perfect vacation!

Orlando, here we come!!
Ann was a dream to work with. She was extremely knowledgeable about our preferred destination and was able to deliver easy, stress free experience. All we had to do was show up at the airport and be ready for the fun.

Colombia's coast visit. Cartagena and Santa Marta
Just returned from our first visit to Colombia's North coast, which includes Santa Marta and Cartagena, both cities date back to the 1500's
Ann, did all the planning for this trip, and if I summarize my review, I could only say that she did a phenomenal job!!
We had all the places, hotels, tours, and guides that we wanted, pre- arranged though Ann, and on the ground all happened as we had planned, hard to believe we did NOT have any issues as we traveled. We were 5 in our group, my wife, two daughters and one of their friends. We all arrived at different times, and at the beginning we even travel at different hour, but as planned we all came together just fine.
The weather in Cartagena was fabulous, and we knew that back home temps were below zero, making the stay more enjoyable, the city is beautiful , an old Spanish town, walled by the Spaniards, with a huge castle to defend the city it is really a worthwhile place to visit. Nice beaches, and if you head north a bit, you will enco

Perfect for the Overwhelmed Bride
Ann listened to us every step of the way. When planning our honeymoon I was so overwhelmed searching for a honeymoon resort on my own because there are so many options and I couldn't differentiate one from another. We told her our hopes, vacation dreams, parameters and expectations and she was open to our opinions through the whole process. We were pretty vague to begin with: "somewhere with a great beach and great food", but she helped us choose the perfect resort by sending us options and listening to our feedback until we finally narrowed it down and booked a beautiful honeymoon. She was able to describe the quality of food and beaches, which activities are included, what's nearby and detailed information about resorts through her own experiences and recommendations from other clients. I will send all of my friends her way and use her for our next vacation!
