“Will be in touch when we’re ready to take another vacation!!!”
We’re back safe and sound from our wonderful vacation, and I just wanted to thank you again for all that you did to help us out. We really appreciated the fruit plate you sent at the Turtle Bay Resort too….that was especially sweet of you to think of us, and it came at a perfect time! We felt like we had a great blend of experiences, with the different places we stayed, and were really grateful for your suggestions and assistance. I’m glad we did Oahu first…it was nice going from the most crowded, to moderately crowded, to the least crowded. 😉 All the places were really nice….but the house we stayed in was spectacular! There was a tropical storm brewing off the coast, but thankfully our weather was still mostly sunny, and very warm. We snorkeled every day, did a boat ride, a plane ride, and some zip lining…. And none of us were ready to leave when the time came! I’ll try to attach some pics to this email. Thanks again… Will be in touch when we’re ready to take another vacation!!!

“There is not one thing that we would change …”
We had the trip of a life time! Thank you so much for all that you did to make sure that our trip was absolutely perfect. There is not one thing that we would change, except a few sore muscles! We all agreed that if was the most amazing vacation and one that we will never forget.
We will most definitely recommend you to all our friends that have travel needs.

“We had beyond an amazing time!!!”
Oh my goodness!!! I had full intentions of emailing you as soon as we got home and of course we got so busy and I completely forgot! AHHH
But oh my gosh! We had beyond an amazing time!!! You cannot imagine how clear the water is, and the fish we saw while we snorkeled everyday on the resort was amazing! I have never seen so many different fish in my life! We saw an octopus from the glass floor in our room and a sting ray from the deck! OH I just cannot tell you how amazing it was!!! The weather we had was perfect, it rained one day while we were there, but we had already planned on taking an island tour that day so it worked out well and that way it wasn’t so hot during the tour. Our pictures we had done turned our perfectly, we have so many pictures to choose from and it is such an awesome way to remember our time there!
The photographer was very grateful to you for recommending her, I hope you don’t mind I sent her your contact information.
When we stayed in Tahiti the resort, like you said, was definitely not as luxurious as the huts (we got spoiled) but it was a neat experience. The black sand was so cool! We didn’t get in the water in Tahiti because the waves were much more rough and since the sand was black the water looked black and I a big baby ha ha 🙂 But we also took an island tour of Tahiti and it was equally as awesome. We were glad we ended up going with your recommendation for staying the last few days in Tahiti because we could not have imagined doing all that traveling to get back to the airport on our last day, we would have felt so rushed. It was perfect how the flights were set up, we flew at night each time and were able to sleep the majority of the way so the flights seemed so quick! We had perfect seats on every flight and each flight went so well! We made it through the airports without any difficulty and I can’t tell you enough how perfect you made our time there!!! We had not a single worry, you had taken care of everything!!! We went to the market in Tahiti and it was such an experience, so cool! There were so many neat things to see and do!! We never made it back down town to the food trucks at night, we never really adjusted to the time difference ha! We were exhausted by 8 every night and were up at like 6am, which was perfect because in Moorea we would just get up and go snorkeling–the water was so calm in the mornings, we would look back and we would be so far away from our hut but we had no idea!
We really cannot thank you enough for all the work you put into our honeymoon for us! I would not have changed a thing about it, if only he would say we could go back on our 1 year anniversary 🙂 Believe me, I have asked hundreds of times already lol

“We had the trip of a lifetime.”
Aloha, we had the trip of a lifetime. The wedding was just beautiful and I would highly recommend Haunai Rossi, Kauai Aloha Weddings to anyone. She was the nicest lady and her husband helped also, they were a pleasure to work with. I have attached a picture for you.
Every detail went just as planned we enjoyed every stop. I loved the itinerary book you sent us that was awesome we followed it to the tee. Thanks again and it was also a pleasure working with you and we will certainly contact you again to plan our next adventure. Thanks again for the cards and excellent service you provided.”

“This was hands-down the perfect vacation for us!”
We returned late last night from Sandals at Montego Bay. This was hands-down the perfect vacation for us! While our friends, Kevin and Lisa, enjoyed many of the tours and going to the other resorts, Scott and I relished just being on the beach and having no schedule. The people were the friendliest that we have ever encountered on a vacation, and we actually made friends and will keep in touch with some of the resort employees. Scott and I will definitely being going back—and not soon enough! “I have already given your name and information to two other people who are looking for vacations in the near future. And we are recommending you highly! Thank you for setting up a vacation that truly helped us celebrate our silver wedding anniversary!!

“It was a PERFECT trip.”
Thank You for the card for when we came back. Very Nice! It was a perfect trip. I can’t believe the time we had. The resort was very nice and did a wonderful job with everything. We had dinner one evening on the beach with our own waiter, a full moon the waves rolling in and it was spectacular. The dinner and the spa treatments were complimentary and I’m amazed how nicely done they were. I had a 30 minute foot massage!!! The weather was great.
We had one day of rain and we sat on our patio watching the people scramble from the beach and pools. Our room was very nice and even better it was in the best location. Several people remarked how great of a location we had . It was centrally located to everything. The food and spirits were excellent and we really enjoyed the unique restaurants. We did not even find the time to leave the resort as we enjoyed all the events and shows. It was a PERFECT trip.
Thank you so much for your recommendation and for all the help and preparations for our trip. I don’t know how we will ever top this but maybe we can try in the future ;). Please feel free to use us for any referrals or anything else we can help with. Hopefully we can get another trip planned next year.

“Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!”
Perfect! Perfect! Perfect! Every detail you arranged came off as anticipated. My wife and I, our five children and their spouses were amazed at how smoothly the entire trip went. The transportation, lodging, meals and the park experiences will be memories for all. My crazy hope is that our grandchildren will be able to tell their children (our great grandchildren) about their trip to DisneyWorld. Thanks. Hopefully your business cards will be kept by all who got them for future reference. I know my wife and I will as soon as our resources are re-built. Again, thank you and best wishes for a Happy and Successful Year.

“Thank you for your thoroughness in planning our trip.”
We received your “Welcome Back” card today, just ahead of my communication with you. First of all, thank you so much for the fruit basket. We loved it. Mostly though, thank you for your thoroughness in planning our trip. With so many things that can go wrong on a trip, believe it or not, this trip was pretty much error free. With 8 planes, two helicopters, a boat and three car rentals, anything can happen. We were thrilled with all of the places you reserved for us, but the last one, the Outrigger Waipouli was really something….sub-zero fridge and beautiful wood, full-size washer and dryer. That kitchen almost made me want to cook, but I controlled myself. We had our balcony windows open at Turtle Bay and Maui at the Aston Mahana. Couldn’t believe how close we were to the ocean.
It was a great trip and I have already highly recommended you. I will also pass out all the cards you sent.

“Stefanie did an amazing job helping us plan our honeymoon in Italy.”
Stefanie did an amazing job helping us plan our honeymoon in Italy. We had actually tried another travel agency first and they were very unresponsive and wanted us to do our entire honeymoon with a large group. Stefanie listened to what we were interested in doing and planned a custom made honeymoon that provided us with the tours we wanted to go on and the time for us to just wander the city and did as we pleased. She even arranged all of the transportation such as a vehicle to pick us up from the airport so we had nothing to worry about when we got there. She was very knowledgeable about the locations we wanted to go to and worked within our budget as well. I have zero complaints about working with this company!

“We will be returning to Stefanie for ALL of our travel needs.”
AAV Romance was amazing to us. Stefanie personally met with us on more than one occasion to go over numerous options for our honeymoon. She was very mindful of what we wanted in a destination and resort and also our budget. She found the perfect match for both and ended up doing it over $1,000 under budget. Not only that, but she wrote a personal letter regarding specific activities and sights to see and tips for the vacation from everything on what kind of shoes to bring for certain types of activities to what to do for finances (whether to bring cash, what types of bills, to use credit cards, etc). Further, she provided us with detailed travel information to make the easy transition through customs and our flights. We will be returning to Stefanie for ALL of our travel needs. Our experience was amazing and it was in no small part to her finding us the perfect honeymoon location to making the travel and easy and efficient as possible.
“We were so lucky to find Stefanie …”
My husband and I had our wedding and honeymoon in Italy. We used Stefanie as our travel agent. Stefanie was simply the best. She made herself available at all times and notified us well in advance if she would be unavailable at any time. I always had the feeling that she was doing her absolute best to help create our perfect Wedding and Honeymoon. As we were unable to see anything we were booking in advance (not being from Italy), we put our complete trust in Stefanie and we were not only thrilled, but overwhelmed at what a wonderful vacation we had. It was absolutely perfect! Stefanie provided us with all documents that we would need ahead of time, thus insuring that everything would be seamless on our trip, and it was! For our actual ceremony, Stefanie put us in contact with a wedding planner, who was basically the Italian version of Stef (wonderful!) and we were able to work out all of the details before we even flew over. It must be said that we had to plan this entire wedding/honeymoon through email with Stefanie and the Wedding Planner, both of whom we had never actually met. Some of our friends found that to be a bit weird and were nervous for us, but I can honestly say, that I never once doubted Stefanie or anyone she put us into contact with. She was very professional in handling all of our financial transactions, bookings, etc. All in all, we were looking to create a unique Wedding/Honeymoon for us and we were so lucky to find Stefanie because she gave us exactly that. I look forward to working with her again on future trips!”

“We had the most amazing time and did not want to come home!”
Thank you so much! We had the most amazing time and did not want to come home! The weather was perfect, the wedding was gorgeous! I think the entire family had a great time and are already talking about returning for future vacations. They made the wedding very easy and took care of everything. From the moment we showed up at the Excellence, they catered to our every need and I would definitely recommend the Excellence Club and the resort to anyone. It was very clean and there was so much to do there no one had time to get bored. We did some deep sea fishing, zip lining and a lot of lounging around by the pool. They had a Michael Jackson show one night and Nate actually got up on stage and competed in a dance off with a few other people from the crowd. It was hilarious! The pictures turned out wonderful and the photographer was really great, I will send you some pics soon. I can’t thank you enough for all the work you did and how easy you made this experience for us! Everyone in my family was really impressed!
