My Reviews

Amazing trip to Charleston!
I CANNOT thank Cara enough for helping us plan our trip to Charleston. We were able to stay at the most beautiful hotel Emeline, which was perfect during Covid with their outdoor open air courtyard and cozy fireplace. Cara's dinner recommendations were unmatched! We especially loved the variety of listings she offered from casual lunch atmosphere at Leon’s to a luxurious perfectly seared filet at Hall Chophouse. We will definitely be calling Cara for future vacation planning!

Weekend in Colorado!
I used Cara's services for a trip to Denver in the Fall of 2019. This was a last minute trip, so I really appreciated all of the time and energy it saved me to have her invaluable assistance in arranging transportation to and from the airport, booking my accommodations, and making recommendations /reservations for local restaurants. She was able to find terrific lodging, which met some of my picky requirements, meanwhile the restaurants she booked exceeded my dining expectations. I always prioritize finding the best food in a new destination, and it was so nice to dine well on her planning. Cara was really pleasant and easy to work with...I will most certainly call her again for my next trip, especially given increased travel challenges with Covid.

Amazing Trip to Taos
Cara really has an keen eye for detail and helped us find an awesome house on our last vacation mountain trip to Taos. Not only was it centrally located (1/2 way between the mountains and the town) but bigger than we had hoped for, and the hot tub was clutch after the strenuous days tearing up the slopes at the ski resort. On top of that, we got a phenomenal travel deal by staying an extra day, and getting a multi-day vacation discount! Will definitely use her services again when we head out West! 5 out of 5 stars!

Girl's Trip to Napa
Cara is an excellent planner which lends well to travel logistics and organizing. Our trip to Napa and Sonoma was perfectly executed. We had days worth of itinerary that she coordinated with her wine industry contacts. Some of our daily vacation activities included winery exploration and wine tastings at several Napa valley locations and our lodging and dinner reservations were all carefully curated to make the most of our holiday. We had such a great trip and travel experience that I know it all started with excellent & reliable strategic planning and well thought out destinations. From convenient direct flights, favorable accommodations and luxury car rental upgrades, Cara has always been able to juggle large groups, diverse travel schedules and the ability to facilitate a wonderful vacation. Many of her skills help create effortless and stress free travel which is crucial to help you make positive memories for your next trip.

Group Trip to Lake Tahoe
Cara recently curated a Lake Tahoe girls trip for 10 of us in September 2020. Her attention to detail is second to none. To start, Cara found and booked our rental dream home that checked all our requirements. The house exceeded everyone’s expectations and even came with a couple of upgrades we didn’t know we would enjoy, such as a sauna and gourmet kitchen. Cara also planned a number of vacation activities for the week, all while taking into consideration our limitations due to the pandemic. Cara also hand selected several cases of wine for our group and had them waiting at the house upon our arrival along with our groceries and other trip necessities. She even found a local cheese shop that was 5 minutes from the house and told us what selection paired well with the wine that she had picked out. Cara made it a true vacation by taking all the planning off our hands, allowing us to finally relax.
