My Background

I feel I have the best job in the world. I plan & create memorable vacations of a lifetime. My specialty is planning destination weddings, honeymoons and those milestone trips where your trip is not something "off the shelf"; it is customized to your interests, personality, and vacation wishes.

I provide a tried-and-true process for destination weddings and that is why my clients are so happy and relieved that they can trust that an expert is handling the fine details and will give them the attention needed. My inspiration comes from all the feedback and seeing all those lovely wedding photos, knowing I assisted in the start of a loving life together.

Tanja was very accomadating with us. We are Seniors and she not only explained everything to us over the phone, but also mailed us everything with notes in the margins and marked what to take with us what to keep handy and so on. She was very business like and we would certainly recemend her to anyone wanting to take a similar trip...SHE IS A REAL ASSET TO YOUR ORGANIZATION.

We went to Dominican for a wedding and stayed at majestic colonial in punta Cana. The hotel was OK. At check in they upgrades part of group but not everyone so that was a bit off-putting. Food was pretty good but didn't know much about gluten-free. Staff weren't very friendly. Had problems with our safe (it wouldn't open and had to be like... Sawed open! Scary.) For the money we paid 1800$) I wouldn't say it was worth it.

Terrible. Everyone regretted using her. She should have given better attention for the huge group she booked.

I was looking for a very special trip for my 10 year wedding anniversary, I spoke to Tanja over the phone a couple times and via email to explain what kind of trip I was looking for. This was the first time I had ever booked an all-inclusive resort. Tanja was very knowledgeable in picking the right resort to suit our needs. She took care of booking everything for us. I recently booked another trip with, great personality, great to work with, I highly recommend her.

Fantastic Service!!

The most knowledgeable and pleasant person to work with! I had the easiest time with this trip. Even though it was a tricky booking from our end, Tanja was able to tackle all of our problems with ease and accuracy! I recommend her to all of my friends that are going on such trips and even other type of vacations. 5 Star service! Thank you so much for all you've done and keep up the excellent work!

OUR CONTACT PERSON IN DOMINICAN WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTACT. NEVER AT OFFICE AT TIMES POSTED. PHONE CALLS NOT RETURNED. OUR FREE ROUND OF GOLF WAS TURNED DOWN AT THE GOLF COURSE. THAT WAS DSIAPPOINTING AS WE HAD TAKEN GOLF CLUBS WITH US AND WERE TOLD A FREE ROUND WAS INCLUDED. WE PAID FULL GREEN FEES. ALL INCLUSIVE....NOT QUITE. MANY OF THE RESTAURANTS WERE NOT INCLUDED AND FULL PRICE WAS CHARGED.

Highly recommended!

Tanja booked our wedding for all 52 of us to the ocean corale and turquesea in Mexico. It was absolutely stunning. I had some problems with actually planning my wedding and she did everything she could possible do to make our day amazing. The hotel hit every one of my "musts" on the list and all of our guests were very happy with the whole experience. If I ever get the chance to do a trip of a lifetime tanja would be the first person I would be calling.

Difficult to book initially

By: Sandy


Reviewed on: 22 Nov 2013

We recently returned from a trip to Isla Mujeres. The resort was lovely, transfers to and from the Island went without a hitch, and the flights were great. All went as planned when booked with Tanja. My problem was that initially when the bride gave us the information we could not make contact with Ms. Walsh. I just could not get her to return calls or emails. Other than that everything was good. I want a travel agent who responds within 24 hours!

It was a good experience dealing with Tanja ! she made all my worries disappear. She handled all my details such as insurance, car rentals with no worries to me at all. Her knowledge of any and all questions I had were dealt with immediately. I would definitely go with Tanja as an agent on all my travels.

Tanya booked me on a return flight from Isla Majeuris with no possible way to get to the airport on time. The first ferry from the island was at 5:30 which would not get me to the airport by the 7:30 AM flight. I feel Tanya should have checked all the times and not booked me on a flight that did not have a reasonable connection.

We recently attended Graham and Shannons wedding in Puerto Vallarta. The booking was fine and the hotel was beautiful. The only thing that I thought was a little strange was, we paid extra for a suite in the Preferred Suites section and most of the party that we traveled with was put in there free of charge. Over all great trip. Tanya did a good job.

Althought this group trip did end successfully, it was due to the persistence of the individual travellers and not to the ability of our travel agent. Tanja was always difficult to reach and slow to respond. The travel co-ordination of a large group seemed to overwhelm her.

Unimpressed. Slow response to queries, request for changes etc. Many people on this family wedding trip were unhappy with lack of attention to details, i.e. bride and groom weren't sitting together; divorced father had current wife sitting on one side, ex-wife on the other side. Air Canada in flight service was awful as usual.

Tanya did not return emails in a timely manner..Tanya did not meet deadlines. When emails were returned, they were curt and unfriendly. I would not recommend her services. I did not feel comfortable with Tanya's level of knowledge in her field.

Book the trip yourself

By: Buffie DuBois


Reviewed on: 14 Dec 2013

Never again will I use a travel agent. Phone calls and e-mails were not handled in a timely fashion. I found my flights, booked my seats and found out what the acronyms meant. I requested a phone call because my email provider was "down" and got an e-mail. Hello! Sadly, the Bride ended up fielding questions for her wedding guests. There was no value added service whatsoever in my dealings with this company and agent. Next time I will arrange my vacation myself.

The planning was fraught with complications.. Fight Dep. Times were wrong( almost missed check in) Flight Arv times home were wrong( scrambled to get picked up) Names were misspelled. Seat selection was totally mixed up.( We scrambled on the plane to correct) Replies were delayed as her hrs were selective. All in all the trip planning was stressful and complicated for everyone involved..Esp. the bride..

We were disappointed with the service. We were not asked for our aeroplan number and had to get her to add this. We were not listed as a group for my wife and I and had to rearrange seating so we could sit together.

Could have been better

Seat booking was a disaster ex-spouses sitting with the new spouses, bride and groom not sitting together, Tanja was of no help. The resort booked 300-400 university students for a conference. Glasses thrown from balconies, used condoms in the pool, yelling until 5am. The hotel put on a fiesta night for the students at the same time as the wedding and reception just 50 feet away. A last minute venue change was made to avoid having the reception crashed. Poor attention to detail.

Increbibly Disapointed

By: BradleyM


Reviewed on: 27 Nov 2013

Tanja has good intentions however I find there was a large disconnect between herself and her clients. Tanja is poorly organized, difficult to contact and make adjustments for travel plans. She is unaware of her clients travel schedule and fails to provide up to date, accurate information. I strongly advise against any group against booking with Tanja or Vision2000. Tanja's clear lack of organization and inability to communicate effectively will cause a more stressful and costly experience.

Highly recomended

Beautiful resort.

Went to the Riviera Maya (moon palace resort) for a wedding, beautiful and excellent resort. However, during our stay there was a convention simultaneously running. The resort become extremely crowded! As for booking the trip, I tried to contact Tanja before the final deadline date as noted in the original documents at the time of booking. She did not respond back to me until after the deadline, by this time it was too late to make arrangements for my partner to come on the trip.

We enjoyed our stay in this fishing village. Everything was accessible by foot and it was safe to walk at night. We enjoyed our hotel and the included breakfast plan. Great clean pool. The direct flight was awesome. Lots of great restaurants to eat at. We hope to return. Good pick Tanja!
