Donald was wonderful with every detail of our family vacation to Italy and Greece this summer. We had excellent tour guides in every city and our cruise was fabulous. I recommend Donald to all of our friends that want the perfect trip!!

He always does an excellent job of every trip small or large. My plans often change at the last minute and he is very competent to re-schedule as needed. I appreciate his help very much.

Donald has been assisting us with travel advice and arrangements for over two decades. He is extremely knowledgeable about all facets of travel and lodging, prompt and efficient in his responses to requests for assistance, charming, and patient! I honestly don't know if we will be able to travel anymore if he ever retires -- I couldn't cope without him! He is truly a joy to work with, and I am so grateful to have been introduced to his services so many years ago. Thank you, Donald!!!! You're the BEST!

Donald outdid himself again!

Continuing to be the best travel adviser ever, Donald helped me with a business trip to New York last week. He suggested a fabulous boutique hotel (The Muse) right around the corner from the location of my meeting. Both the hotel and its restaurant were exactly what I needed after the stress of travel and business. He also lined up a wonderful driver and took care of all the travel arrangements so I had no worries (except whether the planes would be at least somewhat on time). Thanks so much Donald for another great trip! I couldn't travel without you!

Donald recently made travel arrangements for six of us to travel from Columbia to Spain. He expertly coordinated arrangements for the two couples and two individuals, and even managed to have us sitting in adjoining rows. He even arranged for the flights to be on time. :) We have used Donald for many years to take care of various travel arrangements -- from airline travel to drivers to hotels to restaurant reservations to theatre tickets. Often, our requests are complicated, but Donald is always on top of every detail and an absolute delight to work with. Indeed, the one thing I don't worry about in connection with travel is Donald's expertly getting us where we want to go and finding a fabulous place for us to stay. We hope he never retires because we will have to stop traveling if he does! Thanks for everything, Donald! I'll say it again, "You're the BEST!"

A great job

Excellent. He handled multiple travelers coming from different locations and worked out many complex issues due to changes in rules by the airlines. We could not have done it without him.

Donald has done it again!

There are not enough superlatives to describe Donald! He one again did a marvelous job of organizing a logistically difficult trip for 12 of us to North Wales! We had a fabulous time. Thank you, Donald!!! We couldn't do it without you!

Working with Donald is always a joy! He has been taking care of us for about three decades now, and he always does a fantastic job. Our most recent trip was no exception. We have had some very strange requests over the years, but he always cheerfully and efficiently accommodates us. I cannot imagine why anyone would want to book their own travel and accommodation arrangements when Donald is there to help them. As I have said before, if he ever retires, we'll just have to stay home. :) Thanks so much, Donald! You are a rock star!

This was a large trip involving a three generation family group. People were flying in from multiple locations on varied schedules. All went smoothly thanks to the good planning by Donald. After the large group dispersed 4 of us went on to Portugal. He arranged a great driver to take us from Madrid to Lisbon, a lovely hotel and two days with an excellent guide and nice car and driver. Really the best!

Donald is always a joy to work with! He is wonderfully knowledgeable, patient and efficient. We cannot imagine why anyone would ever want to go through the hassle of trying to book their own travel arrangements when Donald is there to make it all so easy, which is why we have been seeking his help for more than two decades now. Thank you so much, Donald! You're the BEST!
