Spring Break
Emily booked a vacation/spring break trip for my daughter and myself. She was excellent-- very patient and knowledgeable. The trip was somewhat complicated as my daughter and I traveling roundtrip from 2 different cities but Emily handled it well and made the experience of booking travel much better. She had some great suggestions and saved us money booking a flight versus online.

Best Experience!
Emily has been a delight to work with on our destination wedding. She was knowledgeable, efficient and listened to our wants to help us find the right location for our budget. While being professional, Emily was also personable so much so that we enjoyed spending time with her. Emily also went above and beyond to get questions answered, researching our trip and price checking several vendors. We will definitely want to use Emily again for any other travels needs. We have already and will continue to recommend Emily any time we get the opportunity.
