You can't go wrong

Amy rocks! There are lots of things I could say about her but, most importantly, she’s incredibly warm, friendly, always available and so ready to create, think, wonder, give us new ideas, and, basically, just create a wonderful trip. I love to go everywhere, but, unfortunately, I’m a freaky, nervous flier (don’t like one thing about flying, actually) so I’ve always planned our trips myself. I have always spent hours to find the right flight and the perfect seat. It kind of takes the fun out of trip planning, and I end up on great flights without much to do when I arrive! Amy gets my flight “glitches” and our need to figure out the best places to go and suggests fun things to do when we get there. If you need a real and honest quality, consistent, attentive, humorous and available agent to help you plan, please try Amy. You will be so much more than just satisfied with her service. You’ll be overjoyed!!!

Amy was honest and sincere. She was a great listener and eager to learn what we wanted out of our trip. She was super responsive and flexible. But, most of all she was very knowledgeable and able to share important information naughts and advice. She made our trip seamless and stress-free.

Dream Trip

Julie Amy is an enthusiastic person who’s passion for travel is apparent the minute to talk to her. She planned a three week Paris and Scandinavian adventure for my family which includes two teenage boys, one Italian husband and one very tall order. We glided seamlessly from airport to airport hotel to hotel city to city. All the while knowing Amy was just a phone call or text away. Her recommendations were spot on, and the timing of our itinerary was well planned. We all really enjoyed the use of the app for our phones so we could stay on time and connected. Amy guided us in the planning stages months before our trip, suggesting must see locations, while also allowing for down time and reflection. This was gained for us while sitting on a dock looking at the Fjords in Norway! Amy posses a confidence and curiosity that I would trust every time I am wishing to plan ambitious and interesting world travel.

Travels in Sicily

Fabulous and stress free. She thought of every detail and made sure it was carried out. Amy or “her people “ were always a call or text away. Our comfort and memorable experience of Sicily were her prime concerns . We are still basking in the glow of warm Sicilian memories. Thanks Amy and team.😍

I had not used a travel advisor for trip- planning in years (since online reviews and booking became available). I was very happy I asked Amy to plan our recent trip to Maine. The planning process was easy and smooth. Amy’s recommendations were perfect for us.
