We had a marvelous time. You handled every detail and the hotel that you recommended was real first class. It was the first time I was in a hotel in Mexico that every single employee spoke fluent English. Rooms were clean & beautiful, very large, and a great view. Food was delicious. Thank you for planning our trip for us. You are an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Always Amazing!

As always Judy & her group were fantastic. she planned a great trip out west for us, and when we had a small blip, we scheduled a spa treatment for our teenage daughter but she was too young for the spa age limit, we contacted her & she went above & beyond finding another place where we could go with her & she got her first massage. She also arranged fantastic guides for our national park trips - they were extremely knowledgable, personable and flexible with what we wanted to do. It could not have been better, she combined all of our interests and desires, and got fantastic accommodations as well. we always know our trip will be great & go smoothly when we plan with judy.

Absolutely amazing trip to Greece!

Once again Judy managed to outdo herself. She arranged a beautiful hotel in Athens & fabulous villas in the islands - we felt like rock stars! She & her partners made wonderful dinner reservations for us everywhere - a Greek friend we saw while there was very impressed, especially with the fabulous table she arranged for us for dinner with views of the acropolis. We were met everywhere by professional, engaging guides/drivers always willing to give their suggestions and help out with any questions. Logistics were handles smoothly as we travelled from location to location. She took into account the needs/desires both of teenagers & adults in planning this fantastic vacation. had we done this on our own not only would it have taken hours upon hours, we never would have found the beautiful homes we stayed in or fantastic restaurants or gracious and knowledgable guides. Top notch all the way!

The trip was beyond expectations. We would definitely go on Amawaterways again. We loved everything about it.

Fun, memorable cruise

Judy's team put together a memorable cruise. We enjoyed it all. The execution of the trip, the many excursions and activities was excellent. It is understandable that with working with agents across the world from New York, there may be a hiccough or two. When then occurred attempts to correct them was made immediately. As a theme, the cruise was right up our interest alley. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our cruise and wouldn't hesitate to go on another cruise with Judy and her team.

Highest Level Of Service

By: Simon

Reviewed on: 29 Jun 2015

My wife and I were introduced to Judy Perl Travel through a friend 1 year ago and have since planned four trips with the same, amazing specialist, Elisabeth. One of the trips was our honeymoon, which was an iterative process but one that Elisabeth was more than happy to accommodate (I changed the itinerary many times, including one change of destination from Greece to Thailand). The trip we recently went on was a 2 day, 3 night trip to Tahoe. My wife and I didn't want to spend much, so we booked the basic room. When we arrived in Tahoe, we had been upgraded to a private cottage, and there was a welcome bottle of champagne waiting for us to congratulate us on our wedding. It would be impossible to provide every customer with an upgrade every time, but this was our mini-moon and Elisabeth made it very special. She and her flight specialist were also able to find me better flights than I could find myself. I cannot speak more highly of the service offered by Judy Perl Travel.

Wonderful, friendly, and competent people.

Working with Judy and Elisabeth was a pleasure. I can be a micro-manager, but they had everything covered from beginning to end. Our three-leg trip included two unbelievable hotel upgrades, seamless transportation arrangements and excellent recommendations. Also, the mobile-app itinerary was easy to use and came in handy. I would absolutely recommend them for travels and definitely intend to use them again in the future. Thanks!

Virtuoso's Excellent Additions!

The tours and events both on and off the ship available through Virtuoso were well thought out and executed. A very welcome addition to our Alaska cruise with Regent Seven Seas.

Perfect in Beijing


Reviewed on: 15 Nov 2015

We were headed to Asia and wanted to see Beijing, but we felt we needed some guidance as we had no idea what to expect. After checking a number of websites myself, I asked Judy Perl if she knew anyone she could recommend. Immediately a terrific itinerary was put together based on my thoughts, and everything was followed through perfectly. We were met even before immigration at the airport and introduced to our 3 day guide soon thereafter. He made sure all was well in the hotel, and that the schedule set was still to our liking. The guide and driver were terrific, and the driver even picked us up and brought us home from dinner. The price, though not cheap, was reasonable and there is no doubt that without the help our trip would have been a real problem. As it was, we experienced Beijing quite well. Thanks, Judy.

broadway on the high seas 5

overall our trip was above expectations. we enjoyed the high level of entertainment and atmosphere. your audience is very intelligent and friendly. the service is good, punctual and well organized. the weakest link was the food. they offered many choices but a 5 star vacation deserves a 5 star cuisine. many of the items were cooked from frozen items. they did not obtain fresh products in each ports of call. this matter needs to be negotiated when you rent a boat from a cruise line. thanks to all of you at Judy perl travel and much continued success in future voyages.

Terrific to Work With!!

I've been working on a 19-day trip to Israel for the last year, and enlisted the help of Judy Perl Worldwide Travel to assist with recommendations, advice, and reservations. I worked with Elisabeth and found her absolutely marvelous! She was knowledgeable and very helpful in obtaining information for us that we might otherwise not have been able to access. I believe she worked closely with an Israeli-based office to obtain the most up-to-date information. And being a member of the Virtuoso Group got us some amazing upgrades (particularly at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem which was spectacular)! It was a pleasure to work with Elisabeth and as we are now approaching the end of our trip, it has been most reassuring to be able to contact Elisabeth whilst on our trip to quickly and efficiently resolve a minor glitch that arose in our itinerary because of a change we wanted to make. I heartily recommend Judy Perl and her great team for any travel assistance!!!

Very happy with the two agents we dealt with before the trip and all arrangements that were made during the trip. More than happy to deal again with them in the future.

The Perfect Trip

By: Linda

Reviewed on: 21 Nov 2015

Broadway on the Seas was the perfect trip... fabulous entertainment, warm and friendly staff, performers and fellow passengers, well planned excursions, and an informal and happy atmosphere. We never wanted to stay in our rooms because there was always something great going on. I usually read five books on a two week vacation. I fit in one because I didn't want to miss a thing.
Not Recommended

Nothing special

By: Cruiser

Reviewed on: 23 Nov 2015

We reserved excursions in advance but two of them were not made. Fortunately, we were able to book them on-board through the cruise staff. Most of the excursions were pretty boring; one had a very high "ickey" factor when we were paraded through a "typical home" in Cambodia. The family who lived there was just standing by as some laughed and gawked at their modest home. We actually left the last excursion (Singapore) in the middle and took a cab back to the hotel. At the end of the cruise, the transfer process to the hotel went okay, but the check-in process was a mess, completely unorganized. Got a different response from every person we asked as to what to do. Seemed like the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing. The only thing that made the cruise worth while was the entertainment on board the ship. For that reason alone, we are planning to do another Broadway cruise.

Phil is a terrific host

By: Carol42

Reviewed on: 22 Nov 2015

Lovely ship, good food, great entertainment, very nice staff all the way around, and nice guests as well. The guides were kind and considerate, but, especially in Cambodia and Vietnam, - their English language skills needed much improvement. I enjoyed this trip, but would probably not do one like this again. I have not cruised before, but now realize that I am used to and prefer much smaller groups (eg - 20 max), and more intimate exploration of the interior of a country. It seems to me now that cruising gives you a taste of a country, but no depth. This is no fault of your program, it is simply my realization of preferences regarding travel. I think Judy and Phil do excellent work and I would certainly recommend this trip Broadway and cruising fans.
