This was my first time using a travel agency to assist in coordinating a personal trip. Sandra was so helpful and patient in working with me and helping me to decide what I wanted do and see. She did a wonderful job working with the local agencies and arranged a trip that I will always remember. All of the arrangements were first class as were the people I dealt with along the way. I'm sure this will not be the last time I utilze their services.

My wife and I travelled to Turkey to celebrate our 25th anniversary. With this being our first time to the country and the language being a challenge for us, we knew we needed help with this trip. Sandra set us up to make everything go so smoothly. We have learned the hard way that it makes sense to get professional help when taking trips to new and exotic destinations, and Sandra was wonderful to work with.

Sandra recommended a Riverboat Wine Cruise on the Danube River, with Ama Waterways. We had never done a Riverboat Wine cruise, so we said, Let's do it. She also recommended a post-cruise 3 day hotel stay in the heart of the historic area of Prague. Sandra took care of EVERYTHING and we had no problems. Transfers from one stage of the trip to the next were all prearranged for us. Thanks to Sandra and Ama, this was the smoothest, most stress free, drama free and enjoyable vacation we've had.

Wonderful Trip

By: Sarita


Reviewed on: 03 Dec 2014

Though, an exhausting trip we were on the go all the time. Every segment of the trip was met by friendly tour guides and or drivers. Even when arriving in Cuzco and our kids had forgotten a document in their passports, Nohemi personally took them directly to sort out getting duplicate documents, and then returning them to the hotel in quick order. She was extremely pleasant in reviewing our transfers and itinerary and then meeting us again on our return trip back to Lima. We all hated to say goodbye as we returned to Lima. In Machu Picchu, our tour guide, Victor Hugo, truly paced our tour so not to tire us out early in the tour. He knew when to stop and explain the history, and show pictures of when it was first discovered. The lunch afterwards was wonderful and perfectly timed. Our stay at Inkaterra was superb! Such a treasure. All the planning could not have been done by ourselves and appreciate all the work by Sandra Ortiz.

We had not taken a cruise before, and did not know what to expect. Sandra at Woodlake took really good care of us. She got us a nice stateroom, beverage package, tips, all transfers, onboard credit, and first class air tickets within a reasonable price range. She knew what all we would need as we didn't, and we didn't need to purchase anything additional. She was professional and very helpful. We had such a wonderful time. The cruise line was a better one, and the clientele were not rowdy or inebriated! We couldn't have ask for or planned ourselves a better vacation.

Another fantastic trip created by Sandra Ortiz! We loved the Harvest Inn and its gorgeous gardens. The room was spacious with a wonderful view of a vineyard. (There was even a fireplace that would have been romantic if it hadn't been 99 degrees in St. Helena in late September!) We were fortunate to meet one of the owners of the hotel, He seemed genuinely interested in all aspects of our experience, even sending in his business card for our use in the future. The hotel restaurant (a Charlie Palmer restaurant) was fantastic, as were the complementary full breakfasts offered each morning. There were even complementary waters, orange juice and wine in the room. So nice not to feel nickle and dimed at every turn! We love Sandra! Every trip that she has ever assisted us with has been outstanding!

Getaway made simple

By: Pistolero


Reviewed on: 10 Nov 2015

We needed several days off as a remedy for burnout. We asked Sandra to give us a few options, and she did. That was it. Next thing you know, we have air, transfers, and hotel. All taken care of. Perfect service like this keeps us coming back. It's not that we can't find an airline or a hotel on our own. But that takes time and energy, and it's not our area of expertise. Besides, we fall into ruts when we do it ourselves; we overlook good options; and we often come away feeling frustrated. This time it was the Baja peninsula. Last time it was across the ocean going the other way. Next time, who knows?

Always high quality

By: Pistoleros


Reviewed on: 07 Nov 2016

We are repeat customers because we always get high quality service. This time it happened to be a trip to a wine-producing region of another country. Naturally, we didn't know much about the area - which is why we use an expert instead of doing it ourselves. Plus, even when we have some familiarity with an area, we don't always have the time to deal with flight schedules, transfers, hotel details, etc. We wanted to go to a wine region during harvest time. But we wanted some custom features, such as some physical activity to compensate for all the high-end eating and drinking, and some exposure to local culture such as music and architecture. As a result, Sandra got us tickets to a symphony performance in a concert hall known for its architectural design; this was a highlight because we sat so close that we could hear the breathing of the musicians. We did a bike tour through vineyards. We did hiking along the coast. We had local guides take us to offbeat places. Splendid.

Sandra has helped me book domestic and international trips since 2008. She is very knowledgeable, professional and always ready to assist. Sandra takes care of every detail of the trip which gives me peace of mind. My most recent trip was a cruise to the Adriatic two weeks ago, along with hotel reservations prior to embarking on the cruise in Rome. Sandra took care of everything, and even provided assistance in securing the services of a private driver for my traveling party while in Rome. I have always been extremely pleased with the travel options, tips and suggestions she offers. So much so, that I have referred Sandra Ortiz to a co-worker and a church friend.

Our Italy trip was fantastic and you and your expertise made that special for us. You provided helpful tips in planning the itinerary and securing more comfortable airline seats to and from. Especially like the fact you were reachable during my trip to fine tune and confirm some small logistics. The treats upon arriving at our hotels and nice upgrades were a bonus and made the trip extra special. Also appreciated the time you spent with my wife and I in reviewing trip and putting us at ease for our first time journey to Italy. Would recommend you to my friends and clients – thanks again and talk with you soon.

Very satisfied from the stand point of efficiency and finding you what you need at the best price at that moment. Although, when she answers the phone she sounds cold and doesn't break the ice easily; it makes me wonder if she had a bad day or something. But I suppose that's her personality, I'm not sure. I still recommend her for being prompt, good at her job, if you need someone more warm and personal, you'll feel uncomfortable with this. P.S. In person she's much better.
