A true vacation

By: TanyaB

I recently returned from my vacation to Disney World. This was not my first trip booked with Rose and it won't be the last. Everything was fantastic. As usual all the details were taken care of and I didn't have a thing to worry about. Now that's what I call a vacation!

Rose is very pleasant, efficient, and always available for questions. We have been dealing with her for years and have never encountered a situation where we were not totally pleased with her performance. Most importantly, I feel that Rose always has your back when dealing with her on any travel related matter.

Rose really listens to my requests, investigates and offers me trips accordingly. After booking she continues to offer service where requested. On my recent trip....Especially pleased with her calling me on day of departure to advise that flight would be delayed!! This saved me lots of time at the airport...I had checked online but it was not updated and we were just about to leave the house when she called. Awesome.

Our recent trip to China was a successful and pleasant trip, thanks in many ways to Rose. Rose assisted with flight selections, visa applications and responded to our every question with her usual pleasant manner. Not taking any chances with final travel documentation, Rose personally delivered these to our home. We would not hesitate to recommend Rose to any of our friends or acquaintances.

Overall: very favourable. A good trip with good side tours, great service, clean everywhere, quiet room, good food, large poolS, helpful front desk, everything worked. Viator and side trips. One was cancelled, then substituted. One which included lunch did not include lunch. Hotel issues.Once I was given a thermos of cold coffee.The service in the main buffet was overwhelming: effective, personal. The gourmet meals (which one must book same-day, and early) were very fine.

Awesome trip to Slovenia

By: Love to travel

Reviewed on: 23 Nov 2013

Our 2 week trip to Slovenia in June was wonderful. As always Rose found us the best deal going. Our departure from Toronto was delayed 3 hours, missing our connecting flight in Rome. 1.5 hour layover in Rome became 4.5 hours. We are not impressed with AirItalia. Returning home, again had a 5 hour delay in Rome. We are not impressed with AirItalia, however, would recommend Rose for any Europe travel, she has never failed us,

Rose kept us informed about all aspects of the travel arrangements, e-mailed us frequently and responded expediently to any queries we had before the trip.  All contacts went smoothly i.e., air, transfers and cruise.  The only problem we had (which had nothing to do with Rose) was our luggage was lost by the transfer company.  The cruise line (Celebrity) was more than accommodating in finding and retrieving it for us but I would not want to use that same transfer company again. 

Different, challenging, and definitely worthwhile

By: TorontoJim

Reviewed on: 05 May 2014

All transfers were there, well identified. All drivers and guides were smooth and professional. All hotel rooms were very nice - though AC in Antigua and Lake Atitlan would have been better. Activities, including Antigua drive/walk tour, market tour, Atitlan and boat ride, Tikal, and Copan were well done. We were never lost or in danger. Meals looked expensive in Quetzales, but my Visa bill in CAD was reassuring. Tourists should take USD cash, lots of it: it can solve problems your Visa can't beat.Travellers should use their 'extra day' if they have one. In Guatemala City we visited Museo Popul Vuh (there are three museums at a bargain price) which I  highly recommend. We were ill on this trip: we had it 'in our systems' before we left. Water: in Guatemala City, use the mercado: less than one-tenth the cost of the hotel's water: three litres for 11.40 GTQ versus 80 for one in the hotel. Don't drink the water anywhere except from the filters (Hotels Porta) or bottled.

Rose has been our go-to travel advisor for many years. Just back from a river cruise in France and had a wonderful time with everything planned in her usual outstanding way.

Many thanks Rose for your many years of helping us and look forward to many more!

Our trip went so smooth because of the work done on our behalf by Rose shifting our flights when our carrier went on strike and it was not an easy process as it effected so many people, and due to that we had an extra day in the southern coast of France.

Recommended by a trusted travel agent, Rose Rende: St. Lucia, with St. James Club Morgan bay as our hotel: beating all expectations in every way. The room is not soundproof. However, once entertainment ends, quiet. Traffic noise virtually zero. We were warned that it is a bit uphill / downhill. Paths are non-slip on every slope. Spouse found a shortcut to pool / main area which saved a bit. No problem. The entire island is rugged. We were fine. On to the important stuff: - meals. Buffet was very good, always. Cook-for-you eggs, wine with lunch and dinner, service better than expensive Toronto restaurants. Bars and pools and beach beautifully kept. Chairs, towels, service everywhere. - optional gourmet meals were easily booked and lived up to their proud descriptions. - everything in the room works. sign to find outlets. - side trips all of exceptional quality. We took 4. We have been travelling for decades and rarely go back. St Lucia may be our third exception. Thank you, Rose.

All travel arrangments were good. Seats were good. Pickups happened. Side trips were good. Hotel was very clean with very helpful staff. Pools, bars, beach were very nice. Three of the four 'special' restaurants were very good. The main buffet was pretty good with some variety, plus an egg station at breakfast and sometimes meat slicers at dinner. When we arrived we were advised to book the Italian restaurant for dinner asap. Turns out the main buffet is closed Mondays. When we asked for a room change, they did it asap and moved the bags while we went on to do other things. Porter left one room key in the room afterward; P had her own so it all worked out. Problems: original room, 917, very noisy. Second room, 689, phone died on Friday and never fixed. Tapas bar conch fritters made us both sick; and service was terrible. Majestic pickup had no sign when we arrived. Recommend: yes. Beach amazing. Hotel very good except as noted. Return? probably not, side trips mostly done this time.

A memorable trip trip

Rose suggested this trip that was put together by Vision Travel in conjunction with Rocky Mountaineer. The leaders, Kevin & Laurie, acting as hosts, did a superb job in handling all of the logistics and planning of the trip which made it so much more enjoyable for us as we were able to leave everything in their capable hands. The trip was as amazing as we hoped it would be. We spent time in Calgary, Banff, Lake Louse, and Jasper, visiting many sites along the way, before boarding the Rocky Mountaineer for our two day train trip to Vancouver. It was as luxurious as the advertisements claim. The advantage we had with the Vision Travel group was all the extras we had before and after the trip, like the Farewell Dinner at the Black & Blue Restaurant in Vancouver. We had an opportunity to enjoy the company of our group and get to know them for five days before we boarded the train. Rose has always given us excellent advise and shared her expertise in the planning of any of our trips.

SunWing has vastly improved their service speed and helpfulness. The hotel, very good in April, was even better in November. Good food, neat beach, towels, bars, restaurants - all top notch. Recommended? Yes, for sure.

Rose got us good flights and the hotels in Beijing (Crowne Plaza Lido) and in Singapore (Fairmont) were excellent hotels and well situated for our city touring. The Grand Asian Princess cruise was one of the best yet, particularly the most interesting destinations/countries visited. We cruised over 5000 miles to 7 countries in 17 days.

Rose is an awesome travel agent. This past summer I travelled for three months all over Europe and Asia. I had many flights, layovers, hotel bookings, etc. Rose booked everything for me. She was extremely organized, prompt and detail oriented. I was in constant contact with her and she would always respond to emails/phone calls right away. There's no way I would've been able to plan this trip without her help. I highly recommend Rose as a travel agent!

Rose was absolutely amazing. She consistently informed me of any outstanding questions it had. She continued to find me the best price that met my needs. She took time to assist me even during her daughters wedding which was very generous of her. I was unfortunately evacuated from the resort because of hurricane Maria and Rose was one of the first messages I received informing me of the evacuation. Within 5 minutes she was able to confirm my flight out of the country which was only in a short coupe of hours. She is a life saver and an angel. Thank you Rose for everything!!!!
