Paula was an amazing advisor to work with. She asked all the right questions and took into account everything we were looking for including working in our budget. She gave us four amazing detailed vacation options. She dealt with all our million questions and went above and beyond with sending us suggestions for excursions, restaurants, etc. Most importantly when we had flight issues she was on the line immediately with the airline rescheduling and setting us up with everything we needed.

Paula listened to what we wanted for our fun girls trip. She planned a fabulous dinner at a local gem of a restaurant, put together extras (can you say champagne and chocolate covered strawberries?) for a special added touch. The location was everything we asked for with easy transfers to/from. She took the worry out of the trip and we got to concentrate on the sun, fun and relaxation piece. Paula is the best!

Paula was/is amazing! She really takes the time to plan out great trips for myself and a group of friends. Making sure that she finds us perfect activities that we would all enjoy. This is the 3rd year in a row that we have entrusted Paula to plan our annual girls trip. We will continue to have her as our go to trip advisor/Travel agent.

Paula is amazing!! I wanted to take our family to visit a new location but did not have much lead or research time due to our busy schedules. After explaining what I wanted, she worked with us and found just what we were looking for within our budget. The area/resort she suggested was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation!!! Paula is extremely knowledgeable about many areas, very patient and kept us updated throughout the process . We will absolutely use her knowledge and assistance to book our future trips and will HIGHLY recommend her to friends, family and even strangers!!! :)

Thanks Paula!!

Paula was amazing to work with. She was thorough and organized every step of the way. My itinerary was flawless from beginning to end. I traveled for 2 weeks to multiple locations while on my trip to Greece. There were many moving parts and every one was exceptional. Paula is very knowledgeable with travel. She gave me so many suggestions from hotels to drivers that I used and it made my trip that much more enjoyable. I can't wait to plan another vacation with Paula. I would recommend her to anyone.

Paula was fantastic! She was so easy to work with because she listened to what we wanted and worked hard to find out our likes and dislikes. She was creative and resourceful.

Scotland Golf

By: sle

Reviewed on: 01 Nov 2019

Paula was amazing! She asked a lot of questions to understand exactly what type of vacation we were looking for and then put together a trip that was absolutely perfect. We knew we wanted a golf vacation and we wanted the full experience of playing golf in Scotland. Paula supplied us with information and recommended a golf excursion that included some of the most historic and iconic golf courses throughout Scotland. Her knowledge of the country, combined with knowing what courses to play made for a wonderful trip. We're already planning on going back and we're definitely having Paula plan our trip.

Wedding in Scotland

By: Cacee & Josh Pollard

Reviewed on: 01 Mar 2020

My finance Josh and I were interested in eloping to Scotland. So we reached out to Paula in early October with the hopes of a December ceremony. Paula replied immediately with great enthusiasm. She made it a point to get to know us and find out exactly what we wanted for our special occasion. Paula took great time and care planning absolutely every detail. All we had to do was pack our bags and get to the airport. Once we arrived in Scotland our transportation was ready and waiting and the accommodations were more than we could have imagined. She also gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants and sites to see while staying Edinburgh and Sterling. The venue where our ceremony took place was something out of a fairy tale. Paula was also an excellent resource for our florist and wedding photographer. I would highly recommend her services to anyone planning a trip abroad. We were extremely pleased with her services and attentiveness. We could never express our full appreciation!
