We Had a Great Trip!

Helen & Ron, (trip to China)
Travel consultant: Heather Hines,

Thanks Heather for all the plans you so efficiently made. We had a great trip and everything went with no hitches at all. 

We really liked China.  The hosts and drivers were excellent and we felt we got to know it and see it.  Did not feel any negative behaviour because we were Canadian.

Star Legend cruise was also a treat. Nice to not have to pack up and move so often. Food was gourmet and crew excellent. Most days we went on excursions, or took a shuttle bus on our own. Enjoyed Japan as well. Hiroshima experience is quite moving.

From the point of view of getting to know the country, the land tour is better. However, cruising certainly has its positive features, so in the end the mix was very good.

Now to get over the jet lag.  Thirteen hours is a long time, but feel better every day.

Thanks again.

Helen & Ron

A Great Vacation Place! The Verandah - Antigua.

Brian & Diane, (trip to Antigua)
Travel consultant: Monica Purdon,

Once again you have recommended a great vacation place. The Verandah  Resort & Spa was wonderful. Very relaxing ,weather was beautiful, staff was excellent. Room was very clean a little dated but all have a balcony and a veranda. Food was excellent  you could go as often as you wanted to at the other restaurants by just booking 2 days in advance. No bracelets or beach towel  cards you could just get a clean towel whenever you wanted one. There were 2 beaches and you had the use of a sister hotel across the road the beach there had some snorkelling the other 2 did not but all were very nice.  

All in all it was a great resort and vacation and we Thank You again for all your help in finding us the right holiday 

Thanks Brian & Diane 

Iberostar Paraiso Lindo was great!

Dick, Mary Ellen & family, (trip to Mayan Riviera, Mexico)
Travel consultant: Heather Hines,

Iberostar Paraiso Lindo was great!

Kids had great time at kids club. There were kids shows every night for kids to preform on big stage. Kids loved the carousel, the wave pool and the pirate ship with water slides. Everyone enjoyed the lazy river ride. The food was as good as first time we went - excellent. Always good selection for kids at both buffet and a la cartes. The grounds were beautiful and well kept big difference in growth from our first trip. Kids loved aquarium in lobby bar (floor to ceiling).

Lots of walking as the resort is very long from the beach to kids club at the plaza. We ate at two a la cartes at Maya (steak) and Japanese at Beach ( everyone enjoyed the cooking show). Ate at Mexican, Italian, and Jambalaya a la cartes in Lindo ( excellent). Had dinner at buffets other nights so we could eat and get kids to their show on time. Only ate at a la cartes where we could get 6:30 pm reservations.

Rooms were getting tired but very clean - still had original tub / shower combo. Everyone enjoyed the beach and there was great snack bar for lunches there. No problem getting lounge chairs at any of pools. Although we had been there before and it was familiar but did not seem like a repeat. The two rooms for the family worked out very well for them.

All in all a great vacation

Dick, Mary Ellen and family
