Everything was great. The resort we stayed at was unbelievable and worth the money spent. Emily was very helpful and offered support throughout the whole process. She told us what to expect, etc. We really appreciate all she did and would use her services again in the future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation this year. Emily got us a great deal as always and our room was in a great spot close to all activities. The resort was wonderful. Very clean, nice pools, wonderful food and we very much enjoyed the nightly entertainment. The staff there were wonderful and made the trip even more memorable. Lots of beach with plenty of seating and crystal clear waters. All in all a wonderful vacation. Can;t wait to book with Emily again!

Emily was great to work with. She listened to my ideas and gave me many choices and also gave her own feedback which was very helpful. We had a wonderful time on our honeymoon and Emily made the whole planning process so simple. We will definitely be going back to her for our next big trip!

Awesome Trip!

We had an amazing trip! Emily made everything so easy and fun. The trip was smooth in every aspect. It really helped that She had been to the resort we went to, she told me little tidbits that actually really did help us once we were there. I LOVED that resort. The people and customer service was amazing. The resort wasn't that crowded either which was great and relaxing.The food and drinks were great, and the beaches were very clean and crystal clear. I would go back in a heart beat!

Excellent and friendly service

The Hideaway was beautiful,awesome, and wonderful. The surroundings were great. We were treated very well. Everyone spoke to you wherever you were. The rooms were spacious,clean, and superb. Food was presented in such pretty ways.We took pictures of our plates. The servers probably thought we were crazy. We chose different restaurants each day, and that was fun. Servers wanted to make sure that you were pleased with everything. We enjoyed the shows that were held each night after having dinner. One night people from Cancun brought in their wares to sell,so we looked around at all of the booths. I realize that they have not been open very long,but the had not installed railings for going up and down the stairs. With elderly people, this could be dangerous. They were in the process of putting them up as we left. The trip was one in a lifetime that we will never forget, and thank you so much, Emily, for your hard work to arrange everything for us.

Amazing Honeymoon

By: mandp0328

Reviewed on: 10 Apr 2015

We were unable to book our honeymoon until about a month prior to the wedding, and we are so thankful that we found Emily and she helped us through the process of researching and finding a place that we would love! She made this process so easy and stress-free, even given the time crunch. I would absolutely work with Emily and Platinum Travel again, and can't wait to start planning our next vacation. Thank you Emily!!

We had a wonderful, very well planed trip. Emily did a great job for us and couldn't have been more receptive to our wants and needs. We will certainly use her in the future as she was most knowledgeable and accomedating.

Great professional service

Our trip was great and was so easy to plan with Emily's help. She found the hotel which was in the best location and had wonderful customer service. She took the time to compare pricing for our airfare which I appreciated. I also called her after we reached our destination to look into changing our reservation and she was most helpful with looking at the other options. We ended up staying as originally scheduled but I appreciated her willingness to help with my questions.

Perfect in almost every way

By: KevinD

Reviewed on: 02 Aug 2015

Emily helped us plan a wonderful trip to Northern Ireland and Scotland. Almost everything was perfect and we had a great trip. Lodging arrangements were fine with the best being Troy Hall in Derry and the Rocpool Reserve in Inverness. Flights were good. A long layover in Chicago was a bit tiring but necessary. The rental cars that we got did not seem like good values and we had to make a number of last minute changes to get what we needed. Otherwise everything else was great. Thanks Emily. We will certainly use you again.

Our first family cruise was awesome and fun and organized! Made the trip easy and relaxing as everything was taken care of by Emily before our departure. She even checked us in online so that we didn't have to! She's planned many trips for our family over the years and ALL of them have been wonderful! Thank you Emily! You are the best at what you do! We appreciate you!

excellent job in planning our trip

Reviewed on: 25 Feb 2017

Emily did such a great job planning our trip at such short notice. We tried to book our own trip but ran into problems with availability on the week we chose. We contacted Emily and she was able to find us a few very nice resorts. Every detail was well planned. Our safety was also addressed and handled very well. We felt safe throughout our trip because she had everything planned to the smallest detail. And she "followed" us throughout the week ensuring we were taken care of. It definitely was a worry-free vacation! Thank you Emily!.

I HIGHLY Recommend Emily!

Let me start by saying that this wasn't just a vacation that Emily was planning, this was my honeymoon. She went above and beyond to ensure that the stress and uncertainty of planning a week-long, all-inclusive vacation abroad was minimized, if not completely removed all together. She was extremely responsive to my questions, to the point of literally describing each action that I would take in the Montego Bay airport! Looking back, I'm not sure I could have pulled this off without Emily. This being my first time at this particular resort, Emily provided us with a perfect room, set up everything logistically, and allowed us to simply enjoy the experience. I highly recommend Emily for any and all trips that somebody may be planning in the future!

Mediterranean cruise

By: Amy

Very helpful and accommodating! Over the top awesome. She made some amazing things possible for us. Including organizing vendors so that my fiancée & I were able to get married while in Santorini, completely last minute. She did it though, no problem. And the things we saw and the places we stayed were perfect! All of our transfers were at the right place and on time. Her understanding of what we wanted to do and see was right on. We look forward to working with her in the future.
