Best Honeymoon EVER!
Teresa planned our honeymoon in October to Aruba and it was INCREDIBLE. She listened to everything we wanted to see/ do and helped us stay within budget while planning the trip of a lifetime. She found us a small, quiet, private boutique resort with our own little private villa. It was perfect for honeymooners or couples without kids - exactly what we were looking for. She also helped us find and booked us on the most amazing excursions! From parasailing, a dinner cruise, ATVing, swimming in a natural pool, and a romantic couples massage. It was PERFECT in every way. She also recommended some of the best restaurants (one we went to 3 times it was so good). Overall, she booked us an incredible trip we will remember for the rest of our lives, and we can't wait to go back someday!

Awww Allison, your description makes me smile! You and Tyler were living your best lives on your unique "Fire and Ice" honeymoon to Aruba and then on to Iceland. When you told me you wanted to go to both places, I was up for the challenge and loved seeing your photos on social media. Who else gets to parasail, snowmobile and swim in the Blue Lagoon on the same vacation? Amazing. Thank you for the referrals that keep coming my way too - you are the best!

Amazing Cruise-Thank you!
Teresa helped us choose our cruise and also arranged every detail for us on the Celebrity Edge. We had the best time and what a gorgeous ship! We had one of the spa staterooms and we loved how close it was to the spa. We also really enjoyed the animated specialty dining at Le Petite Chef. We would not have known about this special experience (or the private cabanas and how to arrange them on sea days) without Teresa recommending it. We have another cruise booked this summer in Europe and will continue to use Teresa’s services again and again. She’s the best! Thank you, Teresa!

Wonderful Viking Cruise
I can’t thank Teresa enough for all she did to arrange our vacation to Europe. I was overwhelmed with all the details and coordination that was needed for our group of 3 couples. She gave us recommendations and set up some amazing tours. Our hotels were beautiful and in great locations. She even arranged for us to have a private cooking class in a chef’s apartment in Rome. It was over the top fun and one of the highlights of our trip! She also suggested we begin our first day with a private golf cart tour in Rome to ease into the 9 hour time difference and get an overview of the city. We loved everything about this trip and the Viking cruise was amazing, we loved the daily afternoon tea onboard. We ended in Barcelona and got into all the architectural sites we had on our “must see” list thanks to Teresa. We also found the local café that Teresa recommended for churros and chocolate and felt like “locals” enjoying a treat on our last day. I highly recommend working with Teresa.

Anniversary Trip of a Lifetime
My husband I were looking for a special trip to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We didn’t really know where we wanted to go but had always dreamed of going to Australia. With Teresa’s help, we were able to see so much of Australia AND New Zealand before, during and after our Viking cruise. We ended up taking almost a 3 week trip and it was so worth it! Her advice was invaluable and we probably asked more questions than any of her other clients but she was so patient and responsive. We have recommended Teresa to several of our friends now and we couldn’t be happier with her as our travel agent.

Incredible Christmas Market River Cruise
Teresa is the most knowledgable and professional travel agent. From our first conversation, I could tell she was a cut above. We wanted to travel on a Christmas Markets river cruise but did not want the mass market, cookie cutter experience. She helped us select the AmaWaterways Grand Danube cruise and then helped us pick hotels for before and after. She also recommended custom tours when we wanted something a little different than what Ama offered. Teresa was so patient with our questions and really honest with her advice. I won't travel anywhere without working with her.

Thank you for the kind words Leigh! It was a joy to work with you on your river cruise during the most magical time of the year in Europe. I look forward to working with you on your next trip soon!
