Group Vacations Expert

Group vacations are exciting to plan and they can provide better deals than travelling alone. Last year, I planned a trip for 50 employees and guests (over 100 people total) to enjoy a relaxing getaway in paradise.

Disney Cruise Vacations

One thing I always tell my clients is that Disney is NOT just for kids. I’ve been on 4 Disney cruises, and in May of 2016 my husband and I celebrated our honeymoon aboard a Disney cruise ship.

Why choose a Disney cruise? There are so many reasons! Imagine the enchanting atmosphere combined...

If you’re looking for an agent who knows Walt Disney World front, back, and sideways, the search is over!

I’m not simply a fan of Disney; it was once a central part of my life. I completed a 5-month internship program in Orlando where I worked at Chef Mickey’s restaurant. To say it was a life-changing...

Birthday Trip!!
Anastasia was just what I was looking for in a travel agent! I was having trouble getting responses from someone I had used before. I reached out and was recommended to use Anastasia! From the first email, she has been professional, courteous, very prompt with responses and great all around. I look forward to continue working with her as my travel date approaches. I feel comfortable knowing that I can reach out to her and she will be able to meet my expectations should issues arise!

Spring Break 2016!
Anastasia was great at suggesting the perfect place for our family spring break vacation. She knew exactly what I wanted and made all the plans for us. It took so much stress off me knowing that she had previously visited the resort and it came highly recommended. I was worried our kids would not have enough entertainment or excitement but the resort she planned had it all! After working with her I will never plan a vacation on my own again! Thanks Anastasia!!!!!

Disney vacation with no stress thanks to Anastasia
We did not understand the benefits of working with a travel agent until we met up with Anastasia. She put our needs first and began to customize a vacation that best suited what we wanted to accomplish. She understood our busy schedules and made things easy for us to accomplish the important details prior to our vacation. Anastasia is the most proactive person I have ever witnessed! She sent us ideas and found a phenomenal promotion did leg work on our behalf to get the promotion applied. She could have not done that, however, it is not her style. She puts her clients first and her personality kept us calm and collected during some of the stressful parts of planning and budgeting. We could have never done this on our own--Anastasia was patient with us and gave the best advice based on her wealth of experience and research. If you want someone to pay attention to the details and do what is right during every step of the process, then look no further than Anastasia.

Honeymoon
My fiancé and I had no idea how to go about finding a place to go to for our honeymoon, and Anna messaged me and said if I needed any help that she’d help. And she did! She was absolutely great with helping us find a place to go to at a reasonable price! I would recommend her to anyone who is needing help finding somewhere to go. Thank you so much, Anna! We appreciate all of your help!!

Works Really Great Under a Budget!
Anastasia is such a great travel agent! We initially thought we would only use her for our honeymoon (as we're young and not that wealthy) but she made the experience so smooth and easy that we had to use her again! She works great under a budget and really takes your requests seriously.

I remember that we had asked her to book us a hotel in Paris that was historical and near the city center (under a budget, of course). Wow! Did she deliver - not only was the hotel historical and super-close to Notre-Dame, but it was also charming and right in the middle of an arts district.

We're truly made a travel partner with her and we're so excited for our next trip!
