My Travel Stories

The Amalfi Coast

I spent two days exploring the Amalfi Coast of Italy.  This is the picturesque area of Italy's Mediterranean coast that looks life has stood still for the last 50 years.  This area of Italy consists of small villages tucked along the rugged coastline.  Bright houses built into the cliffs.  Brightly...Read more.

Alaskan Cruise

Hi Anna-- I wanted to thank you so very much for all your help getting our Alaska adventure worked out. Everything went off without a hitch! Thank you also for the lovely steak dinner. We entered the Inside Passage on Monday and our first stop was Ketchikan. We took a float plane and flew over the Misty Fjords. We landed on a lake by a waterfall and all got out on the floats. It was great fun.. Tuesday was our day in Juneau. We went whale watching in the morning ,and spent time at Mendenhall Glacier in the afternoon. Whale watching was so much fun. We saw two momma Humpbacks and their babies. One momma was so close to our boat that you could hear her blow hole opening and closing. We also saw lots and lots of eagles, sea lions, and seals. On the way back into the bay we could see the Mendenhall Glacier--a river of ice. All in all, it was the best adventure ever! Thanks again for everything! I hope to work with you again in the future.

Secrets Cap Cana was Amazing
We couldn't have asked for a better All-Inclusive! We traveled to Dominican Republic to celebrate a friends honeymoon. Anna Swartwood recommended we stay at Secrets Cap Cana located in Punta Cana and she nailed it! She lined up our airfare, lodging, and transportation to and from the resort. The adults only all-inclusive offered all the amenities you could want; daily activities, over-sized pools, swim up bars, great food, nightly music/shows, white sandy beaches, and elegant rooms. We upgraded to a swim out room and it was totally worth it! You share a pool with roughly 6 other rooms, but found we were usually the only ones in it (still plenty of room if all 6 rooms were using it.) Depending on which room you choose, you could spend all day in your swim out pool, however, we chose to spend the day at the larger pools with other guests and wind down just before dinner at our swim out. This was our first time staying at a Secrets and we would definitely go back. The staff and grounds w

We had a wonderful trip!!
Anna we had a wonderful trip. Weather was awesome.

Hotel was great. Wonderful place.The hotel staff is superb!! They did a phenomenal job!!!

I wanted to let you know also about the pick up experience. But I wanted to send a special thank you to the gentleman that helped us get checked in at the airport to leave Cancun. I wish I could remember his name but what an awesome person! I forgot to check in on line the day before. He walked us to the check in. Got us all registered and then walked us up to the counter to make sure we were all good! Phenomenal customer service. As a person that runs a store that strives for 100% customer satisfaction! This gentleman did a 200% customer rating!!
We will be traveling again soon and will be using your service again. Thank You so much for all that you did and the great service in Mexico!!

Everything we wanted it to be!!
Our trip to Mexico was everything we wanted!! It started off with easy transportation to our resort that was pre-booked with Lomas Transportation. Lomas staff were friendly and helpful. We even ended up booking some excursions through them at our resort when we met with the day after arrival to schedule our return to the airport.

Riu Palace Riviera Maya was an absolutely amazing all inclusive resort! The staff were super friendly and entertaining. All the other people staying at the resort were friendly. The food and drinks were delicious and had a wide variety. The room we had was like a standard hotel room but was clean and everything we needed since we did not spend much time in the room. The beach and pool area had plenty of lounge chairs available for everyone.

I cannot wait to do this relaxing trip again!!
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH US? Anna did an excellent job helping us figure out what we needed for this trip to go smoothly. She was very easy to work with for
