Thank you for planning such an unforgettable vacation. Nicaragua was beyond amazing, from the beautiful views, amazing resort service and everything in between! Thanks again for making it happen!
Ane, thank you for helping us design such a wonderful trip. As I mentioned, Cam said it was the best trip of his life, and he’s been to some spectacular places. This meant so much to us and we feel even more connected to Scotland now…You nailed it and we look forward to planning our next trip with you.
Ane planned an amazing trip through Scotland. From the flight to contracting with a top notch touring company, Sleigh Tours. They drive the Royal Family when they are in Scotland. All cities, towns, excursions, restaurants, hotels were amazing. My family of 4 (kids are 18 and 20), were all very pleased!!
Ane really helped streamline the process, giving us some great hotel options, restaurant suggestions, and things to do in each city we visited, not to mention she helped us secure some very coveted and hard-to-come-by tickets to an English soccer match. This allowed us to focus on the actual wedding and not stress about the rest of our trip. After working with Ane to plan our honeymoon, I would undoubtedly reach out to her again for future travel. It was a trip we’ll never forget and we truly felt spoiled!
You were amazing! You made our trip really perfect. You were especially helpful in the beginning with all my many questions and had great advice and suggestions for which hotels were best and what we could do on our trip. You where really understanding giving all of the covid restrictions. When we arrived we received the best packages! We felt really taken care of and you are very attentive to check in and make sure everything was going perfect. We honestly can’t wait for our next trip and we are definitely going to work with you again because everything was so perfect and we got the best treatment because of you! To sum it up, you gave great advice in the beginning and helped us pick a great hotel, you were able to get us an amazing package with great deals, and you really cared to make sure we had a great experience. We can’t thank you enough!
Our family had the trip of a lifetime in Italy in the summer of 2019! We were so green to the process – as we had never been to Europe, and Ane’s vast personal experiences and knowledge of Italy helped to make the planning process and the trip itself so enjoyable. Talking through the various cities and “must see” events throughout the trip for our specific family dynamic (my husband and I, 5 adult children and an 11 week old baby) and wish / style list were so helpful.
Ane’s handling of the transportation was perfect!!
- Ane handled all flights, trains, personal drivers, and tours for throughout our stay. Our virtual trip portfolio had all of the info clearly documented for reference.
- The mini-bus drivers between towns, to and from airports, etc. was so perfect – all arranged with driver names, etc.
- She coordinated a 2nd set of ‘return’ plans for 2 of the party that needed to return early.
- The added knowledge and experiences that she shared with us and the answering of a million questions with joy and patience made the whole process a dream!
- Austin to Naples, Pompeii tour, to Amalfi Coast-Amalfi & Capri, to Rome, to Sienna, to Florence, and back home – 2 weeks of togetherness and breathtaking experiences.
- We will always cherish the Italy Tour that Ane planned for us and can’t wait for another opportunity!
Thank you SO MUCH for organizing this trip! Everything was seamless–from the accommodations, transportation, activities, and even with help arranging for all the ferry tickets! We felt like VIPs everywhere we stayed and it was wonderful not having to stress about putting together this trip while we finalized our wedding plans. We can’t wait for the next trip that you plan for us.
I want to let you know that we loved our trip. It was absolutely amazing . You took care of every detail and everywhere we went and everyone we met knew it was our anniversary. Jade Mountain was unbelievable. We dove three times and loved the waters in this part of the Caribbean. We would love to return. We met your contact at the reception and she was amazing. She said she enjoyed working with you. Our dinner on the Celestial Terrace was unforgettable. My husband surprised me and proposed I spend another 40 years with him. It was during sunset and just beautiful. The sommelier Chris actually waited on us as they were short staffed and provided an unforgettable experience. I will dream of this trip forever. I cant thank you enough for everything and hope you know that you helped us make memories of a lifetime. We will defiantly be using you for all our travel needs.
