Wouldn't plan a trip without her expert advice and service.

As always our trip was effortless, even though it was last minute. Sandy forwarded the necessary documents by e-mail and we were set.. I'm not sure if she ever sleeps or really takes vacations herself, as anytime I sendm her a text or email it's generally moments before she's replying. Thanks Sandy for another stress and worry free vacation.

Hi Our family disneyland trip was great! The Howard Johnson hotel is very family friendly and very close to the parks. My grandsons have made some great memories!

We received direction, advice and encouragement at every point of this journey. Being our first cruise she was able to inform us of what to expect and set our concerns at ease. Sandy answered every question we had. She is very knowledgeable concerning not only the cruise itself but insurance coverage to ensure that all our needs were met. Sandy went above and beyond what we ever expected. She made sure we had a worry free holiday.

Sandy gets back to me very quickly. She does some research & makes great suggestions. She quotes prices that include taxes & adds in transfers, etc so there are no surprised. She reminds me to get insurance & to check my documents are in order. I trust her.

We had and amazing time & we are so grateful you took the time to really listen to what our expectations were for this family vacation! We loved our resort El dorado Casitas Royale - we are so happy with your recommendations - the swim out suites were worth the splurge. We thank you for your extra communications to the resort - our rooms were all together - I know this is always a challenge! Knowing you were only a phone call away at any time we were grateful forgot taking the time on a Sunday to arrange our last minute excursion for our group - the day was amazing! ! We loved the wine and chocolates waiting in our rooms when we arrived! Looking forward to booking with you again - you made everything so easy! We truly had a relaxing vacation, not having to worry about any details as you took care of absolutely everything! Thank you from our group of 8 - We highly recommend your services and will definitely be referring you to our networks!

Sandy was fantastic! Found us what we were looking for, booked it and had all of our documents to us in a timely manner. As it was an anniversary trip she even gave us a supper on the beach, which was fabulous! We have used Sandy for all of our travel needs for the past four years and look forward to booking our next trip with her.

Trip to Mayan Rivieria

By: Stacey & Shayne (Regina, SK)

Reviewed on: 15 Mar 2017

Sandy was a pleasure to work with!! She was accommodating and was able to work with me by text/email/phone and gave great advice/suggestions/information. She took the time I needed to decide what exactly I wanted and genuinely wanted the best trip for us. She provided information/highlights for us to consider, but never pushing us into something we didn't want. Having her help us gave me great piece of mind that our trip would be fabulous and it absolutely was the best trip ever! Thanks Sandy!

Sandy always goes out of her way to accommodate, never leaves anything out. She will go out of her way to make a trip very memorable. We have used her as our Advisor for years and she has always been amazing!! We have referred her to many of our friends and family, who are all equally pleased with her service.

Sandy made a great choice for us with the Azul Ixtapa Grand. She was thorough in her review of the property and followed up both by email and phone after we came back from the trip. Sandy's a great listener and has planned several of our special holidays. Thank you, Sandy!

Great holiday!
