My Reviews

A flawless trip
I 've landed! It was an excellent trip and I was upgraded to an all wheel drive. I will be referring Yamonee to anyone who needs a travel agent! She is very knowledgeable on USA travel. If it wasn’t for her, I may not have taken this trip. I had some life changing moments in Colorado and received vital direction on making the move. Thank you for your time, effort, and energy in making this happen!

Honeymoon
Yamonee helped us find the perfect destination for our honeymoon. I really wanted an over water bungalow and she helped us find one in our budget. She planned all the transfers and everything went very smoothly. We had a great honeymoon! Thank you Yamonee!

The easist way to vacation!
Yam has planned two getaway vacations for my husband and I this past year. First was a trip to the beautiful island of Dominican Republic in April of 2017, she suggested a resort based on our interest, and guided us towards options that fit our budget, and the way we like to relax while on vacation. We had a blast, we fit it in our budget, and we honestly didn't have to think of a single thing, as she took all the hassle out of the planning. We were so thrilled with our trip, that when it was time to plan a late summer quick getaway, we called her once again. Not having a location in mind, she selected a few options that fit within our budget, and our interests. We were so impressed with her ability to take the planning off our shoulders, match us with the perfect vatations, and helping to make sure we were completely taken care of from start to finish, that our late summer getaway was completely relaxing.

We can't wait to engage Yam once again for this year's family vacation
