Best Family Vacation Ever
Michelle took the time to plan a trip for our group of twelve. She found us an excellent deal for Atlantis in the Bahamas. I will be using her for all my travel!

Honeymoon of a lifetime
Michelle was great to work with, she was on top of everything! When picking a travel agent, it was important to us to find someone who would listen to what we wanted to do and not just the typical things you would do. She really took her time in asking and suggesting activities that were along the lines of what we wanted. The whole trip went perfectly and every we experienced was more than we expected! If you are looking for a well-traveled agent and someone who is looking out for you, she is a MUST go to!

Best trip of my life
I've been on some great vacations without ever using a Travel agent so I was hesitant to use for the 1st time.

Michelle was easy to work with and when I told her what I was looking for she immediately ( like 30 seconds) made a suggestion and I went with it!

Michelle's suggestion exceeded my expectations.
On a 1-10, it was a 15!!

I would definatly use her again.
