Angie, our Napa Valley trip was a delight!

Adrian and Julie, London ON (trip to San Francisco CA USA)
Travel consultant: Angie Mussio,

Let us tell you it was a SURPRISE AND DELIGHT week! The modes of transportation were greater than I expected. We did airplane, train, automobile, boat, hot air balloon, trolley, bus, SUV and large van!!!

The accommodations (Hotel Zoe and Candlelight Inn) were fantastic with fabulous breakfasts every morning. The Napa Valley wine tours were to die for! Abbey Golden from Platypus Tours is someone you should ask for when planning future clients trips to Napa. She was an executive chef and has excellent knowledge of wines and local Wineries. She also went above and beyond in providing us with fabulous lunches to soak up the vino.

The bottom line is Angie, you put together a flawless itinerary with very professional local resources to make our week a memorable one for all four of us.

Thank you so much!

Secrets Silversands Cancun was a perfect choice for our honeymoon!

Secrets Silversands Cancun was a perfect choice. The weather was not only perfect every single day, but the staff, food and drinks were exceptional. Every part of our trip was first class. We didn't partake in any of the excursions or entertainment but I can say that absolutely every other part was amazing. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone.

Thank you for your help in getting us there, Michelle!

Thanks so much for all your help, Jennifer. We wouldn't have been able to do it all without you!

We had an amazing time at Now Sapphire in Mexico. I would go back there or any of the Now resorts for that matter.

Room: Awesome. We were not able to open the doors to the balcony as it was too buggy. I would do ocean view for that reason but the room was clean, bed was super comfy and the linens were very nice. They topped up the drinks/snacks each day and that was a nice touch. It was fun to have chips and M&M's in the room.

Food:  Excellent. The buffet: if it was supposed to be hot, it was and if it was supposed to be cold, it was. Everything was fresh and I'm a picky eater. They usually had 2 hot "cook to order" stations in the buffet. One would be beef, chicken, fish and the other was a pasta or fajita. Both excellent. The restaurants were amazing. We did the Asian, Mediterranean and they had one that was open and over looking the ocean. That one also did an al a carte breakfast for platinum guests. Very nice. We did the dinner on the beach - also very nice. I know some people have the "no salad, no fruit unless you peel it" rule but the salad and fruit was so fresh and amazing, I couldn't get enough of it.

Pool:  Swim up bar area was just as you'd expect. Busy and social and huge. The Platinum one was a bit quieter and they had 14 bali beds you can reserve. They place a card with your name on it the next day so you have it for that day. Very nice to read, fall asleep and just relax all day. The drinks on that side were made very well - better than the swim up.

Lounge/Social area: This I loved the most. There was a huge lobby/social area near the front of the resort where people gathered in the afternoon/after dinner/evening. There was live music some nights, a magic show that was really cool and just a lot of people socializing. The couches were very comfortable (I even fell asleep once) and plenty. This is a very large area that we ended up at each night.

Entertainment: The staff work really hard during the day and then do shows at night. The "theatre" was nice but usually short lived. They did Karaoke for 1 hour, a comedy show for 1 hour, casino night for 1 hour. I found that once you started to enjoy it, it was over. But oh well....didn't really matter.

Sports Bar/nightclub: The sports bar was a huge hit for my husband. He loved it and got to watch the games he wanted which he loved. At night, this turns into the nightclub. They did an 80's night which went over very well with the crowd. Not sure I want to admit how many times we ended up there!

All in all, we had a very lovely, fun, wonderful trip. Thanks so much for all your help, Jennifer. We wouldn't have been able to do it all without you!
