We can’t thank you enough for arranging such an absolutely wonderful vacation for us!

Travel consultant: Zeri Zavala,

We have truly loved this vacation to Alberta and the scenery has been breathtaking! Every hotel has been top notch including our Calgary hotel last night.

Loved all our excursions, and made new friends and loved the bus drivers and I got the front seat almost every single time and never once experienced motion sickness!

We needed this vacation very much! Can’t wait to plan the next trip out here. It will include Vancouver! Thanks again for being such an awesome travel agent!


It was an amazing trip and an amazing wedding!

Beth, you picked the perfect wedding place at the Paradisus Rio de Oro in Cuba! The wedding planner was so helpful and knew what she was doing. The hotel and food were amazing.

 I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to have a destination wedding. Everything was very affordable too. Everything that we were quoted was exactly what it was no surprises. The flight coming back was delayed but no big issue. Thanks again so much, Beth for planning this for us.

My husband and I and three adult kids — 29, 27 and 22 - were celebrating the youngest graduating from university so we took them all to the Dream Palm Beach resort in Punta Cana.

The beach was good with lots of walking opportunities. We were upgraded to a preferred room which was nicely located both centrally and close to the beach. This is a smaller resort which was what we were looking for.

Restaurants seated immediately and the service was lovely. Charming people. The plates were removed a touch too quickly. One time my youngest ordered Osso bucco and his portion arrived with virtually no meat on the shank. My eldest was sharing with him when the waiter brought another complete dish from the kitchen. Nicely done guys.

The only real opportunity to eat outside is the paella and tacos and the beach grill. That combined with the absence of an outdoor theatre and cancellations of scheduled entertainment due to rain was a serious impact for the kids’ enjoyment. We saw a couple of shows in the convention centre and they were good enough — liked the acrobatics and the magician, however, the entertainment staff were in general, not at all engaging. Rarely saw them and not one engaged with any of us. The resort was not full. Casino amused us for a while and the disco was empty.

If you want a quiet beach vacation this one will work, but it’s not a place to be entertained.
