Client Testimonials

Fantastic Family Vacation

Our trip to Japan was everything we hoped it would be! Tom’s recommendations, accommodations, tour guides, and dining experiences were nothing short of wonderful! We felt spoiled and had no worries on our trip. The attendants who greeted and escorted us from place to place were also extremely helpful and did not leave us until they knew we were well taken care of. We could not have dot this without Tom’s help. We thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic family vacation – which was long overdue.

Great trip to Ireland

"Tom was great, our trip to Ireland was 10 times easier having used his services to help plan everything out beforehand. Hotels were wonderful, great staff and perfect locations. Car rental was extremely smooth, no issues with pick up, or drop off. We were able to relax the whole time and just enjoy our vacation knowing that he already took care of basically everything for us."

The trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Nicole - Staten Island, New York | Traveled to Europe
When I reached out to Tom all that I knew was I wanted to go on a trip to Europe.
Not only did he find me the perfect 3 week trip through Europe, but he helped me plan every step of the way. He found me an amazing priced flight, a super convenient hotel in London, and then a tour group for my age that went throughout 7 countries and 10 cities.
Tom helped me plan the trip of a lifetime and I couldn’t imagine having done any of this without him!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Perfect trip to Switzerland

Reviewed By Cathryn - New York | Traveled to Switzerland ~ Europe
After cancelling a trip to Punta Cana last minute, I reached out to Tom to see if he could help me plan a trip. Within days he planned out a trip to Switzerland and it was better than I could’ve imagined. His itinerary helped me see four different towns and make the most of each of them in just six days total. It was a wonderful and unforgettable vacation and I am so thankful for his help!
