Our trip planned by Kim was excellent. We had a slight hick up at the beginning when we missed our flight. (Our fault entirely) We phoned Kim early in the morning and she was quick to try and help us. We had a blast in both San Fran. and Vegas. The hotel accommodation was exactly what we wanted with the location and amenities. Thanks very much!

I would not trust anyone else to assist with our family's travel planning. Kim is professional, personable, quick, and willing to help find the best travel deals out there. She listens thoughtfully to what we are searching for, and helps us come up with a variety of affordable options to meet our needs. We have used her services extensively over the past decade, and would highly recommend her to anyone, for travel plans big and small.

Last year Kim sent us on a trip to Beaches Turks and Caicos. This was outside our normal mode of travel as a family. At the time I posted on my FB wall: I just wanted to share my full appreciation for Kim and the fantastic vacation she helped us plan at Spring Break. She was so on: available, helpful, clear communication, responsive. I highly recommend her!! We've just booked a repeat! And Kim was as helpful as ever. So glad!!!

Well it would have been a great trip, I'm sure, if we had gone. Unfortunately, health problems at the last minute made us cancel. However - Kim did a wonderful job in planning, and a great job in cancelling. We have been informed that our refunds are in the mail, thanks to the detailed documents she provided. Thanks, Kim.

We have had Kim as our travel agent for many years now and really cannot say enough about how helpful she has been for many trips; she always has good suggestions and really keeps us on track and has helped us make many good travel decisions.

We did appreciate how Kim helped pull things together for us quickly when we decided to take a last minute trip; in no time we had our flights , accommodation, and rail transportation arranged. She even helped us arrange our show tickets. This kind of help means so much to people like us who have busy jobs and not a lot of extra time to make these arrangements. Talk about comprehensive,responsive service, many thanks again Kim!

Working with Kim was fantastic! She was always there to answer any questions and she kept us fully informed about our options. She organized the entire trip and there wasn't a single problem. She researched all the possible trips from the ship and compared private tours with the cost of those offered by the cruise line. We had a wonderful trip and will use Kim to plan our future trips.
