We appreciate hearing your stories about your vacations,
below we will share with you a few that others have shared with us!
August 2010 - Ireland
Thanks to Roz Shearer and Skyland World Travel, our summer vacation was one that we will remember for a lifetime! Our plan was a family, self-guided driving tour in Ireland and I thought "how hard can it be to plan ourselves?" Well, quite difficult as it turned out. That is when I called Roz and she immediately sat down with me to learn all about my family, what kind of interests we had and what kind of travelers we were. Talk about personalized service! I gave her a list of places that I was sure that we wanted to see and asked her for suggestions to fill out our trip. A week later Roz gave me a binder with an itinerary, hotel information, websites, maps and routes, driving times, things to see, what to avoid and some great suggestions and invaluable tips! Everything was spot on! The hotels were perfect, and the itinerary was ideal.
Sept. 2010 - Hawaii
We had a fantastic time, thanks for everything. Flights,
transfers, check-ins all went smoothly. The Sheraton Waikiki was a little
disappointing, rooms and bathrooms were smaller than we expected. However the
Grand Wailea has ruined us for all future vacations! I cannot heap enough
accolades on that place. Barb and I are already thinking of going again next
year without the kids!
April 2011 - Aruba
Debbie and I can't thank you enough for the time we had
in Aruba! The RIU Palace was just what we were looking for. From the ocean front
room and view to the food and amenities, it was perfect. Dinner at Madam
Janette's was a perfect setting for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. They brought
us champagne to toast our 30th and desert with a sparkler to finish the night.
Thanks for arranging this special night! Thanks for everything! See you for our

Our safari to Tanzania and Kenya with Great Safaris was
really terrific! No one could have had better safari guides than we did. They
were knowledgeable, professional and very congenial - always wanting to provide
the best animal viewing and overall experience for us. We did not realize in
advance that we were going to have private guides! That was a BONUS! With only
two of us in the safari vehicle, we could easily ask questions, hear every word
our guides said and always have a prime viewing spot. We saw the Big Five
several times, with many passing right by us. Totally awesome. Our
accommodations were just the right mix of lodge and tenting - totally different
and all were great. The people of Tanzania and Kenya stole my heart. The regal
Masai will remain in my memory forever. I must say that this trip was a
life-changing experience and definitely a trip of a lifetime.
Thank you for arranging our trip through Great Safaris.
Their purveyors in East Africa did a wonderful job.
Oct. 2010 - Walt Disney
Trip was wonderful. Good food and good friends to share
it with. Port Orleans was very nice and warrants a recommendation to other
travelers. We found the rooms and campus were clean and well maintained. The
staff were friendly and very helpful. Disney Express is the best way to and from
the airport. The only drawback we had forgotten is the walking. There is
an extreme amount of walking around the hotels, to and from buses. We will
consider renting mobile transports inside the Parks if we go to Disney again.
Thank you for making the arrangements for us. Next year is is my husband's
birthday and we want to go to Lake Tahoe. Let me know if you hear of any special
travel plans for Tahoe.
