Great Honeymoon to Morocco and Spain!
Yamonee was great to work with. She helped us from start to finish and got us everything we asked for in our honeymoon well within our budget. We knew we wanted to go to Morocco for adventuring and then to relax on the beach somewhere. We had a great time riding camels into the desert in Morocco and ended up on a beach in the south of Spain for our last few days. It was an amazing experience and we will definitely be working with Yamonee again on our future travels.

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!

Once in a lifetime trip
In March 2019, my husband and I, as well as 4 other family members/friends went on a once in a lifetime, month long trip to Ecuador, Galapagos, Peru and Chile. We contacted our travel agent, Yamonee Barboro, to plan our trip. She was a true professional and and worked with us to plan all the details of our trip in a short time, keeping in mind our budget. She booked our flights, hotels, train, transfers and guided tours.

In Galapagos, we had a friendly and knowledgeable guide, at every stage of time there. In Peru, we visited Puno/Lake Titicaca. We also went to Cusco and Machu Picchu, which was the highlight of our trip.

Our trip ended with a relaxing cruise from San Antonio, Chile to Miami, Florida.

Thanks to Yamonee for making this trip a truly memorable experience. !
