Dream Vacation
Michelle is on it! We had a problem with the auto rental agency when we arrived in Kauai, and a problem with Delta. Michelle immediately got a refund for us with Delta and has filed a complaint re: auto rental agency. She wrote a very detailed letter and has kept us informed.

We had a dream vacation and felt so fortunate to have Michelle at our fingertips when we ran into issues. We would definitely use Michelle again. I can't imagine have Expedia, etc. doing much.

We have our new travel agent!

Spring Getaway
This was the first time we used Michelle for booking our family vacation. We had specific dates to work with and Michelle was great in finding us the perfect vacation package. We had been to Mexico several times, but never on the Puerto Vallarta side. We stayed at the Grand Fiesta Americana. It was an adult only hotel which was also a first for us. The hotel, staff and amenities were awesome! We would definitely go back!

We will use Michelle again to plan our next adventure!

Thanks Michelle!

"Smoke gets in your Eyes" tour (Globus)
Answers our questions. Cheerfully makes requested changes. Makes us aware of other options available. Stays in contact and informs us of any changes in timely manner. Meets with us based on our schedule. Compares costs and makes good recommendations. A pleasure to work with. (She even laughs at my jokes!)

An Amazing Trip
Michelle was great to work with. We met early (9/15) to lay out our plans and Michelle was so helpful in making suggestions and recommendations. With plans finalized, we received a summary of our itinerary and constant updates on any changes. We upgraded to comfort seating and paid extra. Just before we left, (1/13/16) there was a change of aircraft. Upon boarding, we were assigned regular seating. We notified Michelle from Kauai and within a couple days, we were reimbursed for our seat upgrades.The car rental company was not able to provide the vehicle size we had reserved and paid for. Rudely they offered a larger vehicle AND additional fee of $280. Michelle became aware of this and is in the process of following up. When traveling, it's comforting to know there is someone to call if problems arise. Michelle has gone above and beyond to insure that we had the most awesome vacation. We will definitely work with Michelle again (and again).
