Customer Testimonials

He Proposed!

I have never used a travel agent before but my boyfriend’s mom gave me April’s information and it was the easiest thing ever. I think my boyfriend’s mom and April knew because special things were set up like a limo at the airport and special candle lit dinner was set up on our first night… Steve, my boyfriend, well, now fiancé, proposed! I was so surprised! I can not believe everything April was able to pull off. She made everything so perfect it was as if she was there. It was amazing. I loved where we stayed so we are even thinking of a Destination Wedding now and I will be calling April. Thank You!

Not Long Enough in Playa Del Carmen

We just got back from a 5-night stay in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We decided on this part of Mexico because it was closer to some of the things, we thought we’d want to do. The resort April suggested was top notch and we had no problem navigating the airport or getting to our transfers because April even wrote an article about the Cancun Airport. Her Travel Blog is footprintselsewhere.com but she just emailed me a link. Very helpful. We went to the Tulum Mayan Ruin as she suggested and that was great. There is so much to see and do that we will definitely be back. We may drag April with us next time?

Destination Wedding of My Dreams

My new husband and I just got back from our Destination Wedding in Mexico. Holy cow, it was perfect. Poor April held my hand all the way. I am so glad we had her take care of everything. April was so understanding and she even told me she had a Destination Wedding in Mexico herself. She put me at ease just knowing she knew what I was feeling. The Wedding was simply amazing! Everyone made it there with the exception of my elderly grandparents, because of Covid but we got the resort video option so they will get to see it. If you are thinking about a Destination Wedding, April is the BEST!

Best Vacation Ever!
I had never used a travel agent before but my cousin had told me to give April a call. I can not believe the difference this vacation was from my previous vacation where I did everything on my own. She was amazing with all her knowledge in regards to Covid restrictions and all the great places to stay.
I just got back from Mexico for 1 week and felt like I had been there before from all that she had described. I didn't get lost at all in the airport or 5th Avenue in Playa Del Carmen.
She is just fantastic. Planning on booking another vacation soon!

Quick Mexico Getaway
My friends and I wanted a quick girl’s vacation to Mexico and April set everything up for us. She even booked us catamaran to Playa Mujerez, which was so much fun. There were 10 of us, all together and everything went smoothly. She was so patient and knowledgeable.

Now our husbands are planning their Guy Getaway for July. It is so funny how excited our husbands are getting about their upcoming trip.

I can’t explain how much easier it was using April as our travel agent.
5 STARS hands down!!!

I will always use April and I know all of the girls will!
