Customer Testimonials

Business Retreat

All of our travel agents in the past never truly cared to help us or understand our business. Matt not only did an incredible job planning our small business incentive trip, but he also took the time to understand our business and needs. We won't ever use a large corporate travel agency again!
Marcos, V., Miami Florida

Group Vacation Excellence

"So welcoming to all of our questions and will do anything to make sure your vacation is perfect. We loved his youthful energy and communication. No matter what the problem is, he is there to help you every step of the way. He handles large groups amazingly and no task is too big. I suggest booking with Matt if you do not want the stress of booking your holiday but still would like to have input in your travel itinerary!"

Fabulous
I am big shopper and find my way to Miami every few months to visit the Design District and shops in SoBe. Over the past twenty years I have probably stayed in thirty hotels in Brickell and Miami Beach but always like to try my hand at a new property to switch things up. While my last travel advisor, Miss Ginger, retired, I was nervous to try someone new out. Let me just tell you, Matt is young and vibrant, eager to help cater to your every need. He chose the best flight times, hotel, and boat charters and kept in contact with me throughout the whole process. He definitely has a taste for luxury so keep that in mind when choosing to work with him (a plus for me but maybe not for a backpacker??).

Best of the Best
I think Matt is the best of the best. Already referred him to friends and family. Well worth the planning fee he charged for our group of 20. Gave us great rates on the resorts and found very affordable airfare.

Good Honesty
Matt is super nice and respectful. Very pleasant to work with but be prepared for his honesty. We were planning a trip to South Beach because we have not been since the 80's. After expressing that we wanted to stay on Ocean Drive, Matt simply told us that is "not a wise move". Well good thing we took his advice, because Ocean Drive is not the place it used to be! Miami Beach is still incredible and with his recommendations, you will have a great time. Best advice? Listen to his! Will use him again for our next trip.
