Customer Testimonials

40th Birthday In Isla Mujeres

Kim Steiger was a delight to work with when planning my 40th birthday trip! This was my first time using a travel agent; I had always taken care of my travel arrangements myself. I am now at a point where I do not want the responsibility of planning. I wanted easy and accommodating. Kim took care of it all; she was responsive, professional and understood my desire to make it a memorable trip. The trip was flawless; she took care of flight, hotel and transports. She even arranged a meeting with a local guide to set up various activities, including spearfishing! I would highly recommend Kim to anyone planning a getaway.

Removing the Worry
Kim takes care of every detail ensuring a vacation is not work! Going through Kim allowed us to plan ahead and actually enjoy vacation rather than trying to piece the trip together ourselves. Dealing with an agent gives that extra sense of security knowing things have been planned appropriately. She listens to her clients and delivers above expectation! Her passion for the business truly shows.

Fabulous Ireland Vacation
Kim was awesome! She was informative,responsive, creative and the trip was tremendous. After the trip, she was ready and available to help with any issues. This is often not the case after the deal is closed and the money spent.
