Title: Awesome trip to Australia!
Reviewer Nickname: Anna
Reviewer Location: Plano, TX
We planned a trip to Australia in 6 weeks and she quickly and promptly got our itinerary set. She worked with us to make sure we had a trip we wanted, although she made some great suggestions for activities based on her experience. She made sure we stayed within budget and was very aware of this for us, always giving us pricing options and letting us know ahead of time what the cost was going to be. There were no hidden costs when we worked with Pauline. She was easily available to us and checked in during our trip to see how we enjoyed it. She made sure to get our visas in a timely manner, which was difficult seeing as we planned the vacation in 6 weeks. She provided us with details about what we were going to be doing each day, but made sure we were ok with everything she had planned. When we asked for changes in the itinerary, there was no hassle while working with Pauline, she made sure everything was promptly taken care of. She is a fabulous agent!
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.

Title: Time of our lives in London & Paris
Reviewer Nickname: Susan
Reviewer Location: Belvidere, NJ
We didn't know what we wanted--just that we wanted to go to Paris and London. Pauline was knowledgeable, patient, and informative as we processed through our decisions so that we enjoyed some excursions with a tour and balanced it with planning our own events. She was very responsive to our questions around some additional sites we did on our own. She even tipped us off to some sale luggage (50% plus 20% off!) that was lighter weight and easier to travel with than our outdated luggage. We LOVED our trip! Four days in London, Four days in Paris and the Eurostar in-between. Accommodations were first-rate!
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!
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 next trip!

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.
Dear Skyland World Travel,
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.
Thank you for your help in lining up my airline tickets to attend my uncle's funeral in Ohio.
You did a great job on short notice and I just wanted to let you know I appreciated your efforts.
It was comforting to know that the details of the trip were taken care of so that I could be there for my cousin's in there difficult time.
Thank you for your professional service,

Susan and Betty,
Arrived home from Jamaica. The trip was great! Highly recommend the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites. Beautiful facilities, immaculate and very accomodating. Thanks for all of your help planning this trip for the four of us. It was worth every penny to see the kids enjoying swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear, warm waters of the Caribbean. Thanks again!
Our trip was WONDERFUL!!!!! The Ohana Beachcomber hotel was so well located (who knew that "ohana" means family in Hawaiian?) - right across from the Royal Hawaiian Hotel!!! We went to Waikiki Beach every day and used the free Pink Trolley to get around everywhere else. The cruise was Great! We went to most of the evening shows - I took craft classes almost everyday. Their "Hawaiian Ambassador" - Malu was so informative with her morning talks about where to go and what to see in each harbor!!!! Saw so much of all the islands - loved the volcanoes and the NaPali coast. I'll put up pictures on Facebook as soon as I can. Thanks again for all your help!!!!
