Wonderful experience
John was very professional and always available. He gave me great information and was open and honest. He didn't try to sell me anything but gave me great advice. I really enjoyed working with John and we spoke recently and he is helping me plan our next trip. I found John on a google search for travel agents and he was rated 5 stars. I have passed John's name and contact information to a lot of my friends. I can't say enough about how professional and friendly he is. Thanks for everything!

Germany trip and Bayern Munich game
The travel services John provided for our 12 day trip from California to Germany were exceptional.

The purpose of the trip was to visit Germany for the first time and take my son to his first professional German soccer game in Munich to see Bayern Munich.

John arranged outstanding tickets for the soccer game, excellent hotel accommodations, transportation, and day trips to tour the sites we wanted to see. Service was impeccable.

Many thanks!

Thank you so much!
John was amazing and so helpful. All we knew is we wanted to go somewhere on a beach that would be all inclusive. John was very patient and was a great listener and he sent us several options in different countries that we could choose from for our trip. Once we made our decision on our destination, John set everything up for us from start to finish. We cannot thank him enough for making our trip one of the most memorable vacations we have ever had.

We didn't have to worry about a thing
John did a great job at organizing our vacation during a time we were nervous about traveling to Ireland. He is a total pleasure to work with, always being professional, courteous and friendly. Was constantly a step ahead with everything we needed, and with those things we didn't know we needed.
