Honeymoon of our Dreams

By: TahitiTara916

Reviewed on: 17 Oct 2016

Anne helped us 110% create the honeymoon of our dreams. Anne provided us with options, and information on what to do, and how we could make it happen. Anne helped us stay in the over the water bungalow of our dreams in Moorea, Tahiti, and then we cruised around some other Tahitian Islands. It literally was a dream come true. We were at ease due to Anne having everything set up for us down to all transportation, and transfers. We ended up having a $700 credit to use on our cruise due to Anne being a Virtuoso agent. We also got hooked up with a free dinner at the hotel, and a beverage credit of about $60 USD. These made my husband and I feel like VIP. Anne also helped us and was on the ball when our flight seat had gotten messed up a bit. She made herself available all the time, and kept the ball rolling. She took us out to lunch before the trip and gave us a little care package WITH champagne and it was just great!!

Highly recommended!

I met Anne at a bridal expo. She is very professional and friendly and more importantly, she responds to emails quickly and thoroughly!! My husband and I needed help finding a place to go for our honeymoon and with the wedding and our work schedules it would have been very difficult for us to do it on our own. After finding out our preferences she came up with a list of specific places with pricing and details. She even booked our flights for us and found the closest airport where we could get a direct flight (which was important to us). The only problem was that we were not seated next to each other on our flights (although this was likely the fault of the airline company because I heard many other people complain about having their seats moved around). Anne was so helpful and I would definitely highly recommend her for any of your planning needs!! Will definitely be consulting her for all of our future trips!!

Fantastic trip with perks

By: Amy R

Reviewed on: 01 Dec 2016

My family and I just enjoyed a wonderful 3 days at the Ritz Carlton Lake Oconee. The property is beautiful, and after Anne told us about special holiday activities that were planned, I adjusted the timing of our trip. The special events were fantastic (live music, hot chocolate and cookies, a visit from santa - who arrived on a fire truck!- annual lighting of the hotel and massive Christmas tree, an ice skating rink and a huge gingerbread house in the lobby. The events made our trip really special and I'm so glad she told us about them. Anne was able to provide a complementary breakfast (the food was wonderful) and a resort credit to use toward our meals. We also had a complementary room service delivery of wine, cheese and frackers and cookies. The perks were wonderful and can't wait to go back again!

We enjoyed complementary breakfasts and room delivery of wine, crackers and cheese/cookies. We can't wait to go back again and book with Anne!

Anne Gordon is the best!! She always goes the extra mile to ensure your trip is perfectly planned and booked. She involves her regional experts to answer any questions that may come up pertaining to the specific region. You feel well taken care of when dealing with Anne and her team. This is coming from a person who always planned & booked my own trips. I realize now how much I've learned and benefited from using Anne's services. I highly recommend using Anne to book and plan a trip!

This is the third trip within a year that my family and I have booked through Anne. Anne is fantastic with all the finite details needed to plan the perfect trip. She goes above and beyond for us and it shows! Our trip was once again flawless. The VIP treatment (and amenities) was incredible. We can't wait to book another trip with Anne. I highly recommend working with Anne for both international and domestic travel. We have already recommended her to many of our friends. She's the best!

Anne is responsive, available, and efficient. She provided impressive guidance and speedy execution. Juggling all the options and variables involved in international travel can be frustrating. Anne eliminated all that frustration and not only planned well in advance, but sorted any changes along the way super efficiently. Thanks Anne. I’ll be in touch for future travels!

Cabo Girls Trip

By: Sarah, Renee and Catherine

Reviewed on: 15 Jun 2019

This is my second time working with Anne. She continues to exceed all expectations! Her hotel recommendation, Grand Las Velas, was perfect for us, 3 friends traveling together. We wanted a luxury all-inclusive, as we are foodies, and a spot with an adult pool. She was able to negotiate additional benefits at our hotel, including an extra airport transfer. I already have Anne working on a family trip for 10 adults and 3 children, challenge accepted! She really takes care to understand the needs for each trip I take - each one has been quite unique, both in traveler demographics and preferences. Thanks, Anne!

Anne was absolutely amazing. From planning our excursions, to assisting with our 20th somethings kids and their missed flights and transport to making sure our VRBOS were in the best locations!! Essence of Italy and Anne provided an amazing service to us. Our mother's maiden name is Cefalu - we went on to Cefalu Sicily and Anne set up an historian/guide who was DELIGHTFUL who researched the Cefalu family and we really believe we found some relatives! We enjoyed visiting with them - it was a life changing experience. Our mother passed away in 2008 and we felt her presence throughout the entire visit. In Cefalu Anne somehow arranged for a restaurant to open just for us so we could eat as we arrived around 2:30 pm and nothing would have been opened for us. They were amazing and the food was delicious!! We have already recommended a few people to Anne and will continue to do so. She was excited for our big trip and created amazing experiences for us!! Thank you Kim Wooden

Anne is THE BEST

By: Kati Monday

Reviewed on: 30 Jul 2019

Anne stepped in and planned our wedding and honeymoon when our original wedding venue was destroyed by a hurricane. Anne found us a perfect location in Mexico that met all my requirements and planned a full weekend of events for all our guests. She also handled all the transportation needs for all of our guests. She was so responsive, listened to my concerns and fixed any issues that arose. One of the big ones was that we had a flight delay that caused us to miss our connection to our honeymoon and the next flight out was not till the next day. Anne sprang to our rescue, booked us a gorgeous hotel in Miami for the night and even had champagne and strawberries in the room when we arrived. She is a true professional and a delight to work with. She planned us a honeymoon in St. Lucia that was the trip of a lifetime. Because of Anne, we had the most incredible 3 weeks of wedding and honeymoon that anyone could ever ask for. I will never use anyone else for any of my travel needs. <3

Reviewed on: 07 Nov 2019

The service industry as a whole is challenging and requires a special talent to routinely exceed customer expectations. Anne specializes in exceeding expectations, as she did once again on our recent 15 days in Argentina and Brazil. We traveled to four cities, with each luxury hotel customized to maximize our stay. From early check in and a late check out to accommodate our flights to the luxury room and amenities She customized tours and resturant recommendations and reservations based on our feedback. Always fun to brainstorm with, her attention to detail is consistent and greatly appreciated. If you want the experience of a lifetime, Anne will deliver for you as she has done many times for us.
