Italian Honeymoon

By: Ginny

Reviewed on: 03 Aug 2015

Lisa did a wonderful job planning our dream honeymoon getaway to Italy for two weeks! Everything went seamlessly during our trip. We were thrilled with her attention to details in setting-up transfers and private drivers to help us expedite traveling between cities. Our private guides were also exceptional. Our guides were educated and so passionate about each of the tours they took us on. I know our trip would not have been as wonderful as it was without Lisa's knowledge and expertise! She gave us all of the tools we needed to be successful in our first trip to Italy - we are very grateful! Lisa has left us confident enough to want to travel the world - but only if she is our travel agent! :) Thank you so very much, Mr. and Mrs. Dalton

We have used Lisa for a few trips and have always been thrilled. Everything from the planning to the trip itself runs so much smoother because Lisa has already thought of every possible outcome. It makes parts of travel that we used to dread much more manageable which in turns lets my wife and I focus on the parts of travel that we enjoy. Lisa also has great ideas about potential travel options which opens up so many great travel opportunities which we would have never thought of otherwise. Lisa is such a great resource for us from start to finish of our trips, and we really appreciate having her help throughout our travels and look forward to working with her in the future.

Great service.

Missed connection

By: Judy

Reviewed on: 25 Sep 2017

Working with Lisa was good. However I did ask if there was enough time to my connecting flight and she said it was legal. But the plane arrived a little late and I missed my connection and had to wait hours for the next flight. This also meant I missed my transportation to the place I was staying. It cost me 120 euros to get there since they could not hold up the whole group for just me. I missed my complete first day of my trip at Le Vieux Convent. Luckily they served me dinner, even though everyone had already eaten Also I sent her a text and she never answered me. I used this agency before but I will not next year when I go to Greece.

Not the best well planned flights especially on the return home. Have used this agency several times before and there is never enough time placed between connecting international flights causing major issues to travel and delays where we were told at the airport that our travel agent should have allowed more time between flights!

Lisa Gordon takes the time to know you, your likes and dislikes. She tries to accommodate your preferences to ensure your travel experience is as pleasant as possible -- most of my travel is for work. Always responding quickly, Lisa provides options. When you hit the invariable snag while traveling (delays, cancelled flights, etc.) Lisa again, finds options. She is pleasant and friendly and always willing to go above and beyond. Lisa makes traveling for business a lot better. She is one who cares about her clients, your experience, and you.

London, Paris, Ireland

By: Ryan

Myself and 2 friends " The Wolfpack" wanted to plan " we are turning 30 trip". We started looking into booking things our-self but with our busy lives it started to become a hassle finding time to get together and to find what we wanted going thru all the "Travel" websites. Lisa took the reins after we gave her our ideas of where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see. She was able to book everything for us (planes, transportation to and from the airport, excursions, rental car, hotels) and took the stress out planning our trip. She was very transparent and always was in communication with us regrading when we had any question or needed to change something. She made our trip planning seamless and still did it within our budget. One thing our group agreed on was having personal drivers to and from the airports was amazing and will always have that, no stress in finding a taxi, shuttle, uber, etc..

My idea for this cruise was 30 days before sail date. I sent Lisa the details and within 3 hours I had a planned trip that included hotels and cars to pick us up at the airport and at the cruise ship when disembarking. Lisa had our trip planned from the time we landed at the airport to the hotel in Port Canaveral. Could not ask for better planned trip with zero issues. As a matter of fact we decided to book another cruise through Lisa for 2020. Great service.
