Kevin, thanks for all the help and being so readily available and attentive any time I called. The only issue we had was transferring planes at Heathrow which was not your doing but I think it was Viking that came up with the itinerary. We nearly missed our connection going because of all the security and hundreds of people going through. Even after making security aware that we had a very short turn around time and being placed in the fast track lane again with many people ahead of us we got to our gate 10 minutes after closing time. Fortunately they had waited for us. If we can avoid Heathrow in the future we will do so.

Best Surprise is no Surprise

Just home from a 28 night cruise from Hong Kong to Singapore (via Myanmar) on the Volendam. There is still no mainline challenger to the ships of Holland America. Class and quality stand out everywhere. Cabins are large, with quality features - solid wood, and tubs. Public rooms are modern yet comfortable. Staff always accommodating. We always know what to expect with HA, and they deliver. The cruise itself had too few sea days to our liking, giving it a "rushed", "oh no, not another port already" feel to it. The weather once you leave Da Nang is unrelentingly hot and humid - draining, both physically and mentally (not a surprise, but something to keep in mind). The highlights include all of Vietnam (the rising star of south-east Asia), Myanamar (long isolated, not running to catch up) and Singapore (always a gem).

Always available, and prompt!

Our Western Road Swing

By: Frank

Overall we had a wonderful, trouble-free holiday out west thanks to Kevin's excellent bookings. Here are some highlights: * We began our trip with a hassle-free and timely limousine service to Pearson. * Our rental car (a Chevy Impala) was great and met all our requirements for comport, gas mileage, etc.. * All our accommodations were outstanding, but of special note were the following: The Quality Inn in Hinton - very warm and friendly staff; extra touches in our room such as a toaster, a kettle and other "kitchen" supplies were much appreciated. The Maligne Lodge in Jasper - loved the sauna! Hidden Ridge Resort - the loft was great. The Quality Inn in Drumheller - gave us a discount because we had stayed at other Quality Inns. The Clarion in Medicine Hat - we had some of the best food on the trip using the hotel's restaurant. Great Work Kevin! We are very thankful for all your efforts on our behalf Frank, Kathy and Tim

Our party of four recently sailed on a beautiful Mediterranean Cruise ending with a two night stay in Rome. All of this was organized by Kevin Lichty and his associate Alice. Every detail was expertly planned, from the smooth airport/ship transfers to the unforgettable private tours. Our accommodations in Rome were fabulous and exceeded our expectations. Needless to say that a trip planned by Kevin will be everything you expected and more. His experience and years of service come out in the details. Bon Voyage.

It was an extremely delightful trip thanks to Sandie, Mark and the Andersons They looked after our group so graciously, friendly and warmly.

I have been with Kevin Lichty for at least five years and he has planned numerous trips for my wife and I including India, Turkey and The Netherlands. In each case, Kevin has proven to be very knowledgeable about all forms of transportation, accommodation, health insurance, tours, etc. to various destinations around the world. His up-to-date knowledge and planning has helped us greatly in ensuring a safe, smooth and hassle-free travel experience at an affordable cost. Our travel style may be out of the ordinary (adventure, culture, shoe-leather), but Kevin knows how to deliver without compromising quality and safety. I can recommend Kevin Lichty without hesitation.

Trip was great. Our guide, Steve Thacker, was excellent - well-organized and full of interesting details. Our guide in Morocco was also very good. I would recommend Insight Vacations.

Kevin got me on an amazing flight on short notice to North Carolina (via Atlanta) on Delta Airlines. Because he was so vigilant and experienced, I saved 60% on an otherwise Air Canada routing, was able to select my seats online, got health insurance and, as it turned out, was on the ONLY carrier flying home after the big snow storm hit the east coast (all other carriers were delayed by 24-36 hours). I can recommend Kevin Lichty of Vision Travel (and Delta Airlines) without hesitation. Peace of mind and attention to detail are worth every penny when travelling these days - Kevin's got your back!

One of a Kind Celebrity

By: Con Stella Tion


Reviewed on: 04 Apr 2016

Well, where do I begin! Good flight and easy transition to the floating hotel. Very clean accommodations, stairs, hallways, washrooms; excellent staff all around and delicious food both at the buffet and dining room. The bonus was the balcony/verandah room where light streamed in during the day. It was great to be awakened by the gradual arrival of daylight in the morning. There is just that extra extension to rest out in the air and take in the view. The General Trivia and Music Trivia sessions were so much fun as both staff members were very entertaining and vivacious. The evening entertainment was very well presented and the Director was ever so motivational and humourous. In addition, it was extra special to have a gentle mannered priest from the Paulist Order, N.Y. on board so that one could participate in the Easter weekend services bright and early before any activities. It was a vacation which truly fit into the required timeline. A great way to spend Easter!

Holland Americas Viking Passage from Copenhagen to New York was impressive! Bergen Norway, Akureyri, Isafjordur and Reykjavik Iceland were warmups to the "piece de resistance" was the passage via Prince Christian Sound across the south of Greenland. Spectacular 2000m cliffs, glaciers, hanging valleys and bridal veil falls. A truly remarkable landscape close up. The communities of Qaqortog and Nanortalik in Greenland are modern vibrant places. The cruise finishes with stops in St. John's and Halifax before ending in New York.

This was a first class tour, with great attention to detail. Never having to worry about our luggage (it always disappeared and appeared in the right place), was one of those details. Kevin and Laurie were wonderful hosts, and kept everything moving smoothly. Our tour bus was comfortable, and our driver/guide was professional and informative, giving details about all the amazing places we visited. The scenery is truly awesome! In Jasper, we boarded the Rock Mountaineer for the last leg of our trip. The Gold Leaf Service was a memorable experience, with young energetic staff providing great customer service. The meals were a gastronomic delight, and the bar service plentiful. We met many interesting and compatible people, so the whole trip met every high expectation.

Each year I travel (from Toronto) to India for work which requires booking a number of legs, on at least two airlines, with at least one stopover, through at least two airports, with hotel reservations and travel insurance (medical & non-medical). I also do routing through at least one European destination on my return home, for personal reasons. Needless to say, there is a lot that could go wrong and there are many 'moving parts' to such an itinerary. Kevin Lichty has been my travel agent of choice for the past five years and he has been consistently dependable in providing me with up-to-date relevant information, travel advisories and documentation that puts my mind at ease and ensures a safe and comfortable journey.
