As always, Amanda perfected another trip for us. It was extra special as it was Susan's 60th birthday. Everything was perfect from beginning the planning for the event to the actual night itself. The location at Keens Steakhouse in Manhattan and their beautiful Bull Moose room were the best environment for this, very well thought out. All of our friends had an amazing evening, thanks to Amanda and her event planner. Thank you so much!

I want to say that Amanda Klimak at Largay did an exceptional job in putting together our Alaska vacation. I can not say enough what a great job she did. She provided excellent ideas about which cruise line to use and also spoke to us about what excursions we might like. In putting together an itinerary after the cruise, Amanda was always available to answer any questions about what to do. This was our first cruise ever, and she helped us in designing programs for our kids as we ll as for my wife, who was uncomfortable with cruising. Now she says, when are we going on our next cruise. All I can say is that Amanda is by far the most conscientious and professional travel agent I have ever worked with our trip would not have been as successful and memorable without her input and service. Well done, Amanda and we will definatly use you again in the future!

When I wanted to do a "bucket list" trip for my wife, I first contacted Micato Safari for their expertise. They said they only did African safaris, but recommended Amanda for expertise in luxury travel worldwide. They were right! Having worked with her for more than two years on several trips I can say she is experienced, creative and patient in planning luxury travels in great detail. Nothing was impossible, and all her recommendations proved to be first class. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking such advice and service.

Great, personalized service!

Can't say enough about this trip. Unbelievable fantastic! The ship was very accommodating our every need. The Disney adventure tour was worth every penny. The group was 35 people which was a perfect size with great families that we met. We were on the go but would never had been able to see the best places with the fast passes our tour gave us in the amount of time given. These guides took us every where in record time and the best excursions like swimming in the Mediterranean via Capri as well as the best luncheon places every day. We were completely tourists and it was the best way to see Italy! Thank you for the best trip ever!!!!!

Very knowledgeable and fun to work with!

Thank you Amanda Klimak and Largay Travel for your flawless planning of our unforgettable safari trip (Sabi Sabi) and tour of Capetown and the South African coastline. We loved every second of the trip, and all we had to do was show up! Unforgettable, thank you.

Amanda sure knows how to plan a trip!

When my wife and I got married, there was no question we would use Largay Travel and Amanda Klimak to plan the trip of a lifetime for us. I can't say enough about how well everything was handled from start to finish. We were thrown an unexpected curveball when I was injured and had to have surgery 2 weeks prior to our departure date in April. I immediately called Amanda and she handled everything with the travel insurance company as well as working with Wilderness Safaris to determine the best time to reschedule the trip. She did all of this while keeping us well informed of the progress. We just got back a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier with the entire experience. When we looked back, there wasn't even one hiccup throughout the entire trip. I'd highly recommend Amanda to anyone planning any type of trip. She's friendly, professional and really listens to you so that she can ensure she's planning the trip they way you want it.

We were referred to Cliff Morgan (by Amanda) to put together a much needed R&R trip on short notice. Cliff was amazing and within 1 day of getting our assignment we were booked at exactly what we had requested- a direct flight to an all inclusive with a beautiful beach. When there was some weather concerns in N.Y. at the end of the trip Cliff, while at a conference, made sure to check in with us and make sure we were up to date on our flight. We are long time clients of Largay Travel and recommend them whenever possible.

Amanda is the best!
