Raves and reviews

 

Couples Swept Away was the perfect way to start our trip. We really enjoyed meeting all of the other couples and taking part in some of the activities at the resort. Highlights:

1. Our room was PERFECT. Thank you so much for making sure we got an oceanfront room on the upper floor. The resort is so large that it was great to be somewhat central and directly in front of the beach. Because it was so active however, it was nice to be higher up so we didn’t have to listen to foot traffic all evening.
2. Restaurants- Brad and I had zero expectations in terms of food. We were so impressed with how good everything was. Our favorite restaurant was Feathers- the nicer one at the resort.
3. Horseback riding- we did a horseback riding tour at Rhodes Hill Plantation that was wonderful. Our tour guides were so knowledgeable of the wildlife/Jamaica, that I really felt like I learned a lot. It was also fun to venture outside of our resort.

 
The Caves was fantastic!!!! It reminded us a lot of a place we stayed on the island of Santorini in Greece.
1. We stayed in the Macka Tree room. It was adorable and had a wonderful view of the ocean.
2. The food was even better than Couples Swept Away and there was so much! We had 5 course meals at each mealtime- and were so stuffed at night we often went straight to bed.
3. The staff was incredible. All were so friendly. The service really was fantastic.
4. Paul, the resort’s water sports guide, was amazing. He took Brad and I out kayaking. We also went with some of the other guests snorkeling in and out of the caves.
5. We enjoyed a private cave dinner in a cave decorated with candles and flowers- absolutely incredible. We felt like we were on a date from the Bachelor!
6. We also took advantage of the private hot tub at sunset one evening- very romantic.
7. The spa was fabulous and one of the best massages that I have ever received.

All in all, the Caves was our favorite. We loved how authentic and intimate it felt and we really enjoyed getting to know the staff and other guests. We were really happy though that we experienced Swept Away beforehand because the Caves was much more relaxing and calm. I would highly recommend the Caves to future honeymooners. Brad and I are even talking about going back for an anniversary someday.

Thank you for all of your help in planning our perfect honeymoon. I really enjoyed working with you and will definitely be sure to contact you in the future. We love to travel.

Amanda and Brad


 

The trip far exceeded my expectations!!! Visited my friends in Sydney, Fell in love with Tassie and am so glad we went to Uluru. Your planning made the trip a pleasure . The AATKings made the side trips seamless. We had great weather the whole trip. Will write more later. Am of course washing clothes. No jet lag problems going over but have felt it on return. Pictures will follow but really don’t capture the true beauty. Yes already have friends who want to know who planned the trip so they know about you when the travel bug hits them. Thank-you so much for your help I know it is not easy to plan for people. I will have great dreams and memories . Peace to you

Thank you so much for all your help in arranging this trip for us!  You made it effortless for us and got us on the same plane with our friends and suites side by side at the resort with very short notice.  It was truly the best experience of our lives!  The resort was beautiful, the staff could not have been any more pleasant or helpful to us and the wedding was fabulous.  Our butlers Garey and Kenton were the best and went above and beyond their responsibilities to make sure we taken care of.  They even threw in some extras that we were not expecting!
I would definitely go back again and would even be interested in other Sandals Resorts.  Although I don’t think we will be making any more trips until the fall or perhaps our anniversary.  The real world has come crashing in and life must return to normal for awhile.

We all wanted to let you know that we had such a wonderful time on our last trip to Maui.  We couldn’t have been more thrilled with your recommendation of Kaanapali Ali condos, our condo was absolutely beautiful.  We loved the barbeque area and used them almost every night that we were there. My niece’s favorite area was the swimming pool and we would start the day at the beach and end the day at the pool.  We will definitely go back! Thank you!

We had another wonderful stay (our third) at Excellence Riviera Cancun.  The quality has been maintained in all areas.  They are constantly caring for the beautiful grounds and beach.  We greeted ‘friends’ who have been there each of the three years that we have gone.  The many repeat customers is a testament to the beauty and quality you can count on at Excellence.  If any of your clients are looking for a fabulous relaxing vacation, you should feel confident in recommending Excellence.

We had an incredible time in Fiji. From the land, people, food and beautiful scenery, we could not have asked for more. Beqa was wonderful, a great cultural experience as well as a relaxing get away. We were able to go to one of the neighboring villages for Sunday church service and see where some of the people from Beqa live. Met people from all over the world that we really enjoyed. I had the wedding of our dreams.

Our wedding day ended up moving to the 28th of September due to weather. We had a beautiful ceremony w/ the chief of one of the villages in attendance (big honor). It was a private ceremony that took place in the back yard of our waterfront bure. Our photographers captured the ceremony beautifully. Toberua was incrediable as well! The people, the food and the beauty of the Fiji. All in all the trip was just what we needed:)

Thank you, Virgil & Jessie


 
We got back from our honeymoon on Sunday and just wanted to let you know it was INCREDIBLE. We LOVED the Carnival Cruise line (first time cruisers) and had no expectations but everything went above and beyond what we imagined!

Shawnie & Justin


We had a wonderful time in Maui. We can’t wait to go back! Thanks again for all your help!

Sara & Pat

We had a wonderful time in Fiji and can’t wait to go back. All the resorts you sent us to were perfect. We enjoyed meeting all the incredibly welcoming Fijians. While you told us about their hospitality, it’s hard to understand until you meet them. It really ended up as the perfect honeymoon. When we get some pictures together we’ll be sure to send them your way!

Vinaka!  Brian and Erica

 


Italy was truly fabuloso! You are an awesome travel planner.

Robin and Cameron

 


I can’t begin to tell you what an amazing time we had on Matangi. It was simply unbelievable! We’ll be sure to recommend your services to others.  Everything went so smoothly!
Jessica and Justin

 


We just wanted to thank you so much for our honeymoon. Everything was perfect except we could have definitely gone for a longer period of time 🙂 the people were so friendly and hospitable!!!! And Viwa was phenomenal!!! We were speechless!!! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND both hotels …. Especially Viwa Island!  Thank you again for our amazing honeymoon!!!!

Kristin & Greg


It was perfect.  Both resorts were really beautiful. The service at Hilton Moorea was exceptional, the people there are extremely friendly.  We had a few hick-ups with Bora Bora Hilton but the OTW bungalow was incredible.

Derrick and Amy


Was absolutely amazing!!! Sandals Whitehouse is gorgeous just as you said.  I loved the Cafe de Paris, the mochaccinos were amazing!  We enjoyed every bit of time we spent there and were so sad to leave.

We had a great time in Fiji! Thanks again for your help to plan the trip for us. We both love Qamea a lot. The staff there are super nice, the food there is amazing and the activity choices are abundant. The room was not as comfortable/clean as Likuliku but we both like Qamea more than Likuliku. The room is Likuliku is absolutely amazing! It’s one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. But the food was somewhat disappointing. The chef did a lot of experiment with the food and it didn’t turn out that good. Some of the fusion flavor was really weird. We both miss Qamea after staying in Likuliku for a few days. The staff there are not as friendly. It’s more like any other 5-star hotel experience and doesn’t have the personal touch as Qamea.

Qamea also just hired a really good dive master for about 3 months. Victor went diving with him and had great time. We also did a hiking and the beach picnic and that was a lot of fun. The Spa is better than Likuliku as well. I like it so much and I went back to do the massage again the next day (given that I’ve probably only done 10 massages in my lifetime, that’s how much I like it!)

BTW, we met Antoine and Natalia in Qamea and Likuliku and they feel the same as us. (I believe you also arranged the trip for them).We are more than happy to provide more details. Thanks again for your help!

Victor and Tina


Sorry I took so long to reply.  I must still be on Fiji time.  We had a wonderful wedding and honey moon.  I can’t think of anything I would change.  Thank you so much for suggesting Royal Davui.  It was absolutely beautiful.  The room was so beautiful that we didn’t want to leave the room and the beach behind us.   We also took full advantage of the spa services that were heavenly.  The sandspit was an incredible experience also.  We were amazed at how many stars were visible in the night sky.  I’ve never seen anything that compared to that sky.  The weather was wonderful and the wedding ceremony was beautiful and stress free.  Everyone at the resort was so friendly.  It is a time that we will never forget.  Again, thank you so much.

Jeanette & Randy


Well our trip to Tahiti was fabulous. It was everything we expected and more. The weather was awesome. The water was so warm and so blue, just like all the pictures you see. We went into town one morning to shop and we went out with Shark Boy to swim with the sharks and rays. He was a great tour guide of the water and islands. He even named his rays…..Jessica, Samantha, Madonna….it was a hoot.Bora Borawas incredible and a once in a lifetime experience. We snorkeled, swam, relaxed and ate great food. Bloody Marys was fun. We can’t wait for our next trip and are already looking at places to go next year. We will be in touch.

Sandy and Randy


Bula! It’s our new favorite term… I’m not even sure where to begin.  The trip was perfect from beginning to end…truly. Honestly, by the time we hit the Qameasand, there was no looking back.  Our 11 days there were magical in so many ways, we are still having a tough time relating that to folks here. 
There are so many stories that I won’t even try to touch on them here.  But, I will say this.  Nothing prepared us for the warmth and beauty of the Fijian people.  They may be materially poor, by our standards, but their sweetness of spirit was truly inspirational!  We’ve just never experienced anything like that at all.  Actually, it made leaving very difficult.  We weren’t just leaving a beautiful resort behind, we were leaving friends behind…what a strange thing to happen on such a fabulous trip?? 
 

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the way that you helped us both realize such a wonderful adventure.  You did a great job….thank you so much! I commend you for the quality of your work and have already recommended you to several people who now want to visit Fiji!!

Jon & Sheila

 


 

Sheraton was also beautiful, great room and nice location. We took a day trip to Oolala Island and snorkeled for the day. Both had a blast.  Thanks so much for all your help planning our Fiji honeymoon!
Bonnie & Timothy


Had a great time! Everyone was very helpful courteous and friendly. We used a day in Cairns to relax by the pool and generally slow down. In addition to the excursions you booked for us to Kangaroo Island, The Great Barrier Reef and the Kuranda railway/Skyway, we also booked tours of the Opera House, a full day Bike tour of Sydney, a harbor cruise, a ferry to Manley Beach, a full day Eco tour of the Blue Mountains, a full day tour of Adelaide, plus many walking tours on our own. We saw and did a lot.

Thanks for your assistance. You and the rest of the staff at Totem Travel were very helpful and responsive to all of our needs and questions, and Renie and I would recommend you to anyone in need of your expertise.

Paul & Renie


I wanted to thank you for your suggestions, and also for taking such great care of us. Fiji was unbelievable. We had an incredible time, on the mainland we did a lot of tours, were able to see a bula festival, went to a village. It was a lot of fun.  The Raddison was nice, but nothing compared to Likuliku.  I still can’t stop raving about it to everyone.

My birthday in Fiji is one I will not soon forget, it was breathtaking. I thought we were going jet skiing, and we ended up alone on this sand bar it was paradise. Thank you again for making our honeymoon so spectacular.

Aman and Rami


I’m sorry that it’s taken me so long to write to you, but I did want to follow up and let you know what an amazing time we had on our honeymoon to St. Lucia.  The resort was absolutely gorgeous and I cannot stop singing the praises of the staff.  We never passed a staff member without being asked if we needed anything or if we were having a good time (and we never went without anything and were always having a blast!).  We were even met with a glass of champagne and a warm towel!

We went kayaking, rode a huge water tricycle, got a couple’s massage, went on an adventure cruise to Soufriere, went to Sandals Regency and had dinner (although we must say that Sandals Grande was by far the nicest, thanks for recommending it!), swam in the ocean, swam in the pools, played pool volleyball, and the list goes on and on and on!  I have to say that I was a little apprehensive about a couples resort and if it would be super cheesy, but I was so impressed with Sandals Grande St. Lucia and will recommend it to all of my friends.

I also wanted to let you know how helpful you were throughout this whole process.  You totally took the stress of planning the honeymoon off of me and I really appreciate that.  The next time we go on a vacation, we will definitely let you know!

Josh and Becky


Thank you, it was AMAZING! We loved every minute of it. Matangi was simply magical and we enjoyed having the opportunity to stay in both the beachfront bure and the treehouse!  We cannot say enough about the island, and the people.  It was truly a memorable trip.  Many thank you’s for your assistance in arranging this trip!!

Keisha


Mat and I had a blast on our honeymoon in Fiji. You were right-everyone at Qameawas so warm and friendly, it was like visiting a friend’s home for a week. It took us a while to get to know all the staff on a first name basis, but we did it.

We ended up spending most of our time diving, such diverse sealife! Angelfish, lionfish, sea anemone… the list goes on and on. The highlight of the dives came when Matt spotted an eel in the rocks that must have been 40? long. And the water visibility was so clear and the colors were beautiful. We’re definitely hooked on diving now.

The bures are gorgeous. We completely took advantage of the private hot tub in the back-at least once a day, if not more. We ate dinner in our bure, did a sunset boat ride, took pictures of the Kava ceremony (Matt was one of the chiefs!), drank out of coconuts, and of course, lots of just plain doing nothing-reading in the hammock and lying out in the sun. And the food was great. Fresh fish and fruit!

I must have eaten by body weight in papaya, it was so delicious. And thank you so much for the massages! I talked Matt into getting his first mani-padi at the Jungle Spa, so we ended up having a “spa day” at Qamea in the couples treatment room. The ladies there are a hoot! So cheery and sweet. And there’s something fun about how the entire resort is like one big family, gossip stories and all.

We spent our last day at the Honeymoon beach-the staff took the two of us out to our own little secluded beach on the island, gave us a picnic basket of wine and fruit, and left us for three hours on our own to relax and snorkel. A great way to close such an amazing trip.

We can’t thank you enough for the recommendation. And the next time we plan another big getaway, we’ll definitely be giving you a call.

Thanks again!
Des & Matt


Thank you so much with your help in planning our trip to Fiji... I remember walking into your office having no clue where we should go but this was absolutely the perfect place!

Matamanoa was amazing… I think it was our favorite of the three places! The people were all so nice and we felt right at home… not to mention the delicious complimentary breakfast!!! We enjoyed snorkeling around the island and the beautiful view from the top of the mountain. We also went hand line fishing and had a great time!

The Radisson was definitely a different experience than the outer islands, but we really enjoyed being back in “civilization” for a few days! We took a taxi into Nadi town and did some exploring, which was very interesting. We went jet-skiing (through Adrenalin) and that was also a blast! We enjoyed the variety of restaurants, the swim-up bar, and the fire dancing show at dinner one night!!!

Finally we went out to Tokoriki. I could not believe all the flowers and greenery there- it was absolutely beautiful! Although we did end up switching rooms because of the helicopter, they were very accommodating and we had an awesome time! We snorkeled at three different locations around the island and even saw a shark! We went to the Yanuya Village, which was very cool… what made it even better was when we were able to stay behind the other boat to see an extremely rare fish they had spotted… and THEN we took a detour to watch three humpback whales! Quite the unique experience and totally unexpected! Our last day was spent at Honeymoon Island, and what a perfect way to spend it!!! It was a gorgeous day and there was awesome snorkeling… and they packed a ton of delicious food for us!

All of the accommodations were great and everything went seamlessly. Pacific Destinationz were very friendly and we had no problems!  Thank you again for everything!! I am sure we will be seeing you again when we plan our next adventure

We got back last night from our wonderful trip to Australia.  Everything was just wonderful, thank you so much for your thoughtful planning. The hotel in Sydney (Quay West) was so beautiful with a fabulous view of the Opera House and the Bridge.  It was rainy a little bit of each day there but we had some sunshine as well when we went to Bondi Beach and Darling Harbor. We arrived in Cairns and had a lovely driver take us to Sea Temple.  Also a wonderful room with so much space!  The girls loved having the hot tub on the deck. We loved the trip to Kuranda and especially the Sky Rail over the top of the Rain Forest, it was a beautiful day and the view was spectacular!  We loved the trip to Michelmas Cay.  The sail over there was calm and gorgeous.  I wish we could have stayed there longer, we absolutely loved it.

I am using a lot of superlatives I guess but it was really wonderful.  We would recommend everything heartily.  Maybe a little less so the Night Zoo, our girls felt a little old for that but they got to hold a Koala so that was fun. Thank you again so much.  Everything ran smooth as silk and it was so relaxing for us.

Nancy and Mike


Sandals Dunn’s River was perfect, definitely the place for us. The weather was great, only rained once for a short time.  And the resort was awesome, got to love 24 hr free food!  We will definitely come to you for our next vacation planning. We would have been lost without you, thank you!

Sarah and Jordan


Aloha! The Outrigger on Oahu had brand new rooms and we could see the pool / ocean from our lanai. Their complementary wedding vow renewal on the beach was an added bonus, the vows were read in Hawaiian and a hula dance was performed, it was perfect. We recommend booking this early, we booked the day we arrived and just grabbed the last spot. Waikikiwas our favorite beach for a swim.

Pearl Harbor was the highlight of our trip, going on Memorial Day and meeting survivors of the attack was incredible.  It wasn’t nearly as packed as we expected.  We paid a little extra for the Explorers Tour of the USS Missouri and it was worth every penny.  Highly recommend the upgrade.

The Hyatt in Maui was gorgeous.  They had an upgraded partial ocean room ready for us when we arrived. It was even a corner unit. Breakfast was so good and we looked foward to it each morning. Highlights were the Old Lahaina Luau.  Our floor seats were right front and center!  We rented from Snorkel Bob’s on your recommendation and the employee told us the perfect place to go swimming with the turtles.

We didn’t drive the road to Hana and instead splurged on a helicopter ride with Air Maui, we saw ~10 waterfalls and Molokai’s famous sea cliffs – very impressive!  We drove up Haleakala to watch the sunset instead of sunrise and it was beautiful. Our last night in Maui we went to the Warren and Annabelle Magic Show in Lahaina town. It was 1/2 magic 1/2 comedy and we were laughing the whole time!

As you can see we are still on a vacation high even tho we’re back to reality. Thank-you Thank-you Thank-you for all your help! We don’t know how you do it…

Tom and Liz


Our trip to Belize was wonderful, we had such a good time. Hamanasiwas wonderful and helped us with all our requests.  We did the optional cave tubing and it was really a quality experience. We did a lot of snorkeling so if any of your customers ever ask if they have to go diving to go there you can say they will have a good time just snorkeling. We went almost everyday.

There were lots of Honeymooners there and we meet a really nice couple that we still stay in touch with. Thanks so much for recommending a wonderful place. ”

Yayoi


We had a wonderful time!  The schedule was fantastic and we were able to see the major sights everywhere we went.  We enjoy each country, but our favorite place was probably Venice.  I can see why it is such a hot tourist spot; it’s just beautiful.

We especially enjoyed our stay in the hotel “Casa Cosmo”.  The rooms are beautiful and the staff was extremely friendly, the central location was great and I would highly recommend it.  Thanks again for all you did for our trip, and we’ll definitely come again when we are planning another vacation.

Chris and Minami


The trip was fabulous !!!!!!!  Sydneyis such a cool city. The Behind-the-Scenes-Tour of the Taronga Zoo was one of the highlights of the trip!  We were able to go into the enclosures and touch/feed the koalas, kangaroos, nocturnal house (echidna) and more!

Cairns was hot and humid. The Lakes Resort was WAY over-the-top in luxury for us.  George and Rob went to the Crocodile Farm and I went to Tjapukai. We all thoroughly enjoyed our respective outings.

Ayers Rock was even hotter ( 110 in the shade, over 120 in the sun, on Christmas). Our morning Desert Awakening tour was wonderful.

Kangaroo Island was my favorite. The tour guides and drivers we had were knowledgeable, humorous and fun to be with. We saw plenty of wildlife, ate fabulous lunches that they prepared and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Thanks for your help with the trip, Linda. My family was TOTALLY awed at how perfect everything was, how everything was set up and ready-to-go, and the quality of the outings!

Carol


The honeymoon was great! We loved Fiji! Everything about the trip was superb. We had the full experience by being on the main island first, and then going off to the Yasawas. That was definitely the way to go. Both Hideaway and Nanuya were great resorts. The experience was really different at both places. We’re glad to have experienced being at both places.

The Fijians are really nice people. We went on an all day cruise from Pacific Harbor that visited 5 resorts, and the crew members treated us so nicely because they knew we were newlyweds. They even baked us a “Happy Honeymoon” cake and sang to us, and had other people on the boat join in as well. Everything was wonderful. The culture, the food, the scenery. Fiji is beautiful. We had so much fun! We would definitely go back.

Thank you so much for working with us to make our trip special. It was definitely hard to leave, and a little sad.

I cannot thank you enough for recommending the Sandals Regency in St. Lucia for our honeymoon. It was such a fabulous place and we had the perfect combination of relaxation and play. We went on 2 tours: the day sail to Soufriere and ziplining. You are quite a knowledgable travel agent and we will definately recommend you to our friends.

“We had an AMAZING time! Gorgeous resorts. Loving, warm people. Fun new foods. Fiji was the perfect exotic destination for our honeymoon! The Radisson was beautiful – clean & new. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the beach & entire pool area. Great restaurant, repuatble spa & lots of action – families, live music, etc – which was the perfect way to start the excitement. We thoroughly enjoyed the waterfall tour on the main land too. It was a perfect way to learn about the Fijian culture & explore their lush island.

Tokoriki we cannot say enough about. It was incredible. The staff was unbelievable friendly & personal & got to know us by name. The beach bures there are so secluded & romantic – we loved the hammock & private beach access. And then the main part of the resort was stunning w/ the infinity pool & poolside dining morning, noon & night. One of my very favorite days of the whole trip was going to “honeymoon island” – the romance package we bought. It was by far the prettiest beach w/ the clearest turquoise water & it had amazing shells! Overall, we were in heaven in Fiji & would love to go back there someday for an anniversary.

Because of you the trip was planned flawlessly & our travel vouchers made each leg easy. We are so grateful for everything you did. You were wonderful to work with & our trip wouldn’t have been nearly as good without all of your expertise & help. ”

“We loved the cruise!!! So relaxing, we decided after looking through the excursions that we did enough of those in Jamaica so we got up when we wanted, ate breakfast when we wanted, got off the ship when we wanted. Perfect. We didn’t want to go home – felt like we had been gone for 3 weeks insted of one – anniversary was wonderful. My list of things we enjoyed could go on for days. We will be planning another in the not to far off future.”

“Hi Linda, had a great time. The tour seemed too fast paced at first, then we got used to it. The distances between places is huge. Loved Kangraroo Island, Kings Canyon and Cairns. Tom loved the diving. Sydney was beautiful. Hotels were all good, except Darwin. Liked all the locations of the hotels, in the middle of things. Breakfasts all excellent, glad they were included. AAKings did a great job with the tours. Excellent tour people, who entertained us with movies and music on long distances. Everyone is very knowledgable and friendly.”

“We had a terrific time. You were right about the weather, it rained mostly at night or early morning and did not interfere with any of our plans. The snorkeling and fishing were amazing, and we also did the Caving experience.

Hamanasi was truly wonderful and we would recommend it to anyone. I think the itinerary that you worked out for us just perfectly met our needs. Thanks so much for everything, everything worked out just great.”

Moorea and Bora Bora were absolutely gorgeous. Great diving. All restaurants were great, but we got a little tired of eating at the hotel so much with the meal plan. We traded a “dinner” for a lunch at the Intercontinental Moorea and went to the Tiki Village (great show).

The Bora Bora Lagoon resort was probably the nicest hotel of the three – great location, great service. Loved the fact that it was on it’s own motu. Thanks for everything, trip went all without a hitch.”

“I wanted to let you know that we all had such a great time at Paradise Village. You were so right about it being the best for families. The kids & grandkids had so much fun in the ocean surfing the waves & boogie boarding. It was great that they could go so far out & still touch the bottem. They really loved the slides in pools. The theme nights were all good, especially the Fiesta night. The guys all took full advantage of the all inclusive drinks. The kids also loved the virgin tropical drinks. I’m so happy that I listened to all of you & booked Paradise Village. A wonderful time was had by all.”

Lynn & Frank

_____________________________________________________________________________

“Well, we had an AMAZING time and loved every minute of it! Sonaisali was a really nice experience, I’m glad we had it and were able to experience Nadi. Tokoriki was even more amazing, and the diving was fantastic…a nice, relaxing pace that’s SO different from what I’ve experienced before. LOVED IT! I think we made some friends there, both among the guests and the staff. We were so impressed with how nice everyone was.

Thanks SO much, Linda! Both Pablo and I feel like you really listened to us and gave us exactly the special honeymoon we were looking for. Sonaisali/Tokoriki was the perfect honeymoon for us. Vinaka vakalevu!”

Janet & Pablo


“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Sandi and Totem Travel for all the great service you have given me over the years. You always take the time to answer any questions I have or find out the best fare available for whatever mode of travel I am choosing.

Case in point: I booked a Fall Colors cruise and a month after booking, you found out that they lowered the price for my cabin by $400 and re-booked it for me. That “above and beyond” attitude saved my family $1200 for the cruise and allows us to take a few more excursions than we had originally planned.

Thanks!!! I tell all my friends about you and will continue to have you book my travel in the future.”

Terri


“So we’re back and already can’t wait to retun to Europe! The trip was increadible – I’ll forward you pic’s soon! Thank you for your help and for the trip of a lifetime!”

Our honeymoon to Paris, France was an incredible vacation! We contacted Jennefer at Totem Travel and she helped us arrange our hotels from Paris, to Nice, to Arles, and to Bordeuax. In addition, she also helped us arranged our flights, Eurorails, car rental, and several attraction passes. I especially appreciated her awesome job on the birthday dinner for my wife at the Eiffel Tower. To top it off she helped us understand what to expect and what to avoid – in other words she really knew a great deal of France that really made it so much more comforting and enjoyable.

Fiji was amazing and so was Tokoriki. It was a fantastic experience and one that we will never forget. We had an amazing time and now can’t wait to go back again. Thanks for all your help and making sure everything went so smoothly for us.”

“The cruise was fabulous and Mexico was beautiful. We had a great time. In Puerto Vallartawe did a tour called Las Calletas where it took us to a secluded beach and they had snorkeling and kayaking ect..The tour guides put a show on during the boat ride to and from the island it was definitely one of the highlights of the trip.

The ship was gorgeous, great service, good activities-you definitely begin to understand why they call it the fun ship. Thank you again for all your help.”

“Megan and I had a wonderful trip! I’m really glad we didn’t go with an organized tour because we could set our own pace and agenda based on how we felt that day. As far as the scheduling of number of days is each location, I think you had it exactly right based on what we wanted.

We saw many different parts of Italy and I’m eager to do more traveling. Thank you so much for everything you planned for us! Hopefully this was just the first of several European Trips.”

“Thank you very much for your help. All the transportations (taxi, tour bus, flights etc…) were perfect. All the Resorts and Hotels in Greecewere top notch. We enjoyed every moment of it. Thanks again for all your work.”

“Everything’s been awesome so far on the cruise. Rome was very hot but very amazing (except for the taxi strike). Cruise has been very tiring but well worth every minute. Resorted to riding donkeys down the hillside in Santorinirather than wait in a huge cable car line. Quite amusing.

Weather has been absolutely gorgeous and very hot. Monte Carlo is my favorite so far. Lisa’s is Pompeii but we’ve loved it all. Leaving Kusadasi in an hour-off to Mykonos.”

Ciao! Bill


“The trip was AMAZING! Ladera and Windjammerwere both truly gorgeous. I would recommend them to anyone. The views from Ladera were just spectacular. Thanks again for setting up such a great trip for us Linda!”

“The honeymoon was great! Thank you for everything!! Having everything set up before we got there was perfect….I just kept the vouchers handy and we went with the flow!

The Thalasso was amazing! THE nicest hotel Scott and I have ever stayed in!! The service was awesome…we never had to lift a finger!! Manihi was great! Exactly what we needed…small, quaint, VERY laid back! And the bicycles were perfect. 2 days we took them and ventured to the beaches. And we bought lots of pearls!! It was hard not going overboard!

We did the pearl farm visit and transfer to the town. Very interesting learning about pearls…and I think that’s the SMALLEST town I’ve ever seen! We have lots of amazing pictures and it was the best trip Scott and I have been on….it was a perfect honeymoon!!!”

“Thank you for sending us the way of Iberostar Tucan! What a fun place. It went way beyond an all-inclusive, due to the friendliness of the staff and the constant entertainment. I would definitely recommend it, and will plan to go back again.”

Theresa


“We had a wonderful time in Kauaiearlier this year. We’ll be back for your great services!”

Elizabeth & Craig


“Just wanted to thank you for the best vacation I’ve ever had! The Iberostar Tucanwas fabulous and we had just a great time! Thanks again for all of your help!”

Michelle


“I have only worked with Jennefer and love her! It is simply easier for me to call her and have her figure everything out rather than me going on the Internet and “wasting” my time. As a single, working mother, time is money and of the essence so I am into outsourcing to the professionals and to the experts.

Bottom line…I love Totem Travel and I love Jennefer…you are my travel professionals and experts.”

Kathy


“You all do a great job. I wouldn’t think of trying another agency. I do “surf” on line for travel deals……but, you always come up with a better one.”

Anni


“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Sandi and Totem Travel for all the great service you have given me over the years. You always take the time to answer any questions I have or find out the best fare available for whatever mode of travel I am choosing.
