This is the 5th trip Sally May has planned for my family, and from the Grand Canyon to Kenya, every step of every trip has been perfect. No glitches, no hiccups. She listens, she gets to know her clients' preferences, and she creates a personalized itinerary with those preferences in mind. We just returned from Italy, and every guide/driver was professional, knowledgable, and friendly. I've recommended Sally to many friends, and we'll use her again for our next vacation.

Sally planned a fabulous trip to India.  We had the best guide I have ever had for a tour.  He was so personable, knowledge about all aspects of his country and its history.  He was very accommodating for the various shopping requests.  He managed to retrieve all items left behind at various hotels of 12 women!  The driver and butler on the bus both were wonderful and professional.  India was better than I ever imagined it would be.  We had the perfect amount of time in each location.  The accommodations were beautiful and the service at the hotels and shops we frequented was so much better than anything we receive here in the US.  I highly recommend a trip to India with Sally as your travel guide.

Scotland is beautiful and the people friendly. We tried to see too much which required too much moving but we saw a lot. The drives by the lochs were amazing.The Scotsman Hotel is very well located but if you have a car, it can be tricky.  Inverness is not a pretty town but has some interesting history. John MacDonald our guide made it more fun although all our tours were self guided so we could have gone it alone. Do not recommend The Kingsmill Hotel.  We were in the new wing which is like a Holiday Inn. The drive to the Isle of Skye was gorgeous by Loch Ness (no sighting). Loved our Cullin Hills Hotel which overlooked the bay, boats and the town of Portree.  It is older but charming and the view!!  Lots to do in Skye and our guide Mitchell with Skye Ghillie was interesting and made it a good day.  Hotel du Vine in Glasgow was our best hotel. Not enough time. The Bonham Hotel was good location, great views but a tad tatty. Overall a great trip and single malt!

My trip to the Golden Triangle in india was so marvelous, I would go again without hesitation! Sally customized our trip, including each individual's interests and preferences. She managed to keep our very diverse group happy, interested, satiated, and "spoiled" every single day. Traveling with a group of strong, independent women must have been a challenge, but our every need was anticipated and met. Each day began with excitement and ended in anticipation for the adventures ahead. I had special needs, and Sally always anticipated accessibility challenges, and never allowed me to slow the group down. Her special accommodations were always discreetly made, and gratefully appreciated. Even so, I never felt like I missed out on anything, which was a thrill! Sally is a gracious hostess, as well as a sophisticated traveler and ambassador. Anyone, who travels with her will be happy beyond their dreams. I can't wait to travel with her again.

Watercolor Inn and the entire resort community is fabulous. The beach is immaculate with crystal clear water. We had an oceanfront room at the Inn which was lovely. There are condos and houses everywhere with parks, fountains, trees galore. Bikes are made available as there are paths all over the place. We would bike to Seaside for lunch and shopping and even dinner. The workout room is nice and big with great equipment. I cannot say enough about this place. Did not need a car. Flew into Panama City airport and took Sunshine Shuttle which uses cars. So convenient and parking and traffic at Spring Break time is intense so was glad I did not have to drive. No crazy drunk college kids as they are all down at Panama Beach and elsewhere. This is such a family friendly and adult friendly place with a nice Adult only pool right by the Inn.

Sally May is simply the best at luxury travel. She inevitably gently twist my arm out of a planning mistake or two every time I time we book a major trip with her. Simply cannot recommend her and her team too strongly.

Excellent. Our first trip to Nantucket. Sally May found the perfect hotel for us. She listened, researched, then recommended our hotel. Sally found facts from others and had great suggestions for us.

Sally, as always, was impeccable in her planning and our trip to Africa was just fabulous in every way! She tends to all the details including the complicated transportation. I never worried a minute about the details! One of my favorite trips EVER and I'd highly recommend having Sally plan your next trip!

Worst Experience in 25 Years of Traveling

By: Kermit

Reviewed on: 28 Mar 2019

I am to review the PLANNING of my trip by my advisor. From my experience, Sally May planned very little. She used a partner travel agency to create our itinerary and seemed to hand it over to them and then do nothing. We had a 23 hour layover in London and no hotel booked. We arrived in Cairo to start our trip (at 3:30am) and we had one room with a king bed, for a party of four. I put down my credit card that night to get us a second room. On the last night of our trip we were to stay in Petra, but we had an 8am flight out of Amman, which meant leaving the hotel at 2:30am or 3am to make out flight. Unacceptable. These were examples of the big mistakes. We had many more issues with smaller mistakes, terrible communication, and seemingly little knowledge of the itinerary on Sally May's part. While we were struggling with these issues on our trip, her response to us was appalling. She was unprofessional and expressed no accountability for the mistakes in the itinerary.

Sally's great!

Sally is such fun to work with because she is experienced and excited for you to have a great time. She sends you several updates, so you are always on top of any changes in your itinerary, and is flexible if your plans change. She checks up on you both before you leave and once you get home, and it always feels very personal. I highly recommend letting Sally plan your next trip!

Sally was very helpful in helping us put together an itinerary for travel in a place that we really didn't know anything about. Our activities and guides were excellent, and she helped us find just the right balance between activity/relaxation. We've used Sally for a few trips now, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a great travel experience.
