First of all Fiji airways is an excellent and very comfortable airline! Business/first class can be pricey but it is so comfortable and the seats lay flat so you are really able to sleep which really helps with the time difference. It’s worth the extra money.
The first resort we went to, Namale, was amazing and life changing. We have travelled a lot and we have never stayed at a place like this! The staff is so genuine, caring, kind, etc… The staff knows each guest by name and calls you by your name wherever you’re at on the property. They are truly there for the guest and make you feel so special and try to meet your every need. There is just a feeling of “calm” around the whole property. The spa is definitely worth visiting. We get massages at Massage Envy but the massage we received there was amazing! The food at the resort is all very fresh and delicious. They actually grow most of their own food that they serve. And any baked goods and ice cream is all prepared from scratch. So you are eating so well, nothing processed. We visited the nearby village where many of the staff live. It is so humble and so very different than how we live here in the U.S. They have very little but are so happy and so willing to share and give what they do have. The people of Fiji really made that place special.
I just want to take a minute to let you know how much we enjoyed the Marival Resort in Nuevo Vallarta. It was a hard to leave! Brynn (Lee) and I have said several times that it couldn’t have gone better! The resort was spectacular. Our room (condo) was perfect, big, clean, modern, and well cared for. The resort was immaculate. The food and service was wonderful wherever we ate. Pools sparkled and the beach was gorgeous and clean. Our 2 excursions were great. The employees were exceptional and very helpful and kind. You must have even arranged perfect weather! Seriously! We loved it. I was concerned about arriving alone at the airport, but Tukari was there to pick my up promptly with a flower and bottled water greeting. No problems, they were great! I have shared all my joy with my co-workers and they all want to go! Thank you again and again. When I save up more money for my next adventure, I will be contacting you. Thanks Mary!
First I want to thank Mary Curtis for her outstanding customer service. My husband and I live in Virginia and my siblings and spouses live in Pennsylvania. Mary was able to coordinate our travel plans so we all arrived in Dublin within 30 minutes of each other. She was available to all 6 of us answering questions and ensuring we had all we needed up to the minute we departed and a follow up when we returned. My friend who lives in St. George, referred me to Mary and I will utilize her services in the future.
Our trip to Ireland was a dream come true for my siblings and me. Our ancestors were born in Ireland and our family immigrated to the US like many in the early 1900’s.. I don’t think we ever thought we would all experience it together and create such wonderful memories of a beautiful country, laughter and new experiences together. We started our trip in Dublin with a visit to Neary’s pub, our family name (my maiden name). The areas we visited were breathtaking, the West of Ireland was amazing. CIE tours were strategic to ensure we were given the up-most experience to encourage us to go back to Ireland to spend more time in the areas we loved! I will be sure to call Mary Curtis to plan our next visit to Ireland!
This incredible adventure took us from the awe inspiring monuments of our nation’s capital to the streets of New York City seen from the 70th floor of the Rockefeller Center (The Top of the Rock). For 11 days and 10 nights we stayed in the best hotels and ate in wonderful restaurants. We traveled in the comfort of a roomy tour bus, while our tour guide, Howie, told us fascinating facts of american history and stories of our countries beginning.. ,
We crossed into Canada and stayed in a beautiful room overlooking the incredible Niagara Falls and cruised to the base of the thundering horse shoe falls the next morning. That nigh we enjoyed a Dinner Show, ” Oh Canada Eh”. We traveled through the Amish country and Philadelphia with it’s rich history.. Our driver John, handled all of our luggage and even my mobility scooter so the only thing we had to worry about was enjoying our selves.. We traveled to New York and took in a Broadway show. We toured the cities famous streets with it’s towering skyscrapers . .We cruised the New York Harbor. past Ellis Island and the majestic Statue of Liberty. Through it all we came to realize just what an incredible country we live in. We want to thank Mary, and Travel Connection, for putting this trip together so seamlessly. It went without a hitch from beginning to end.
We have worked with Mary from Travel Connection on 2 separate vacations. She was so knowledgeable and helpful. The prices are also great! It’s so nice to be able to book a vacation and know that everything will all be taken care of. We have also referred several people to Mary and they have also had wonderful experiences.
Wonderful relaxing fun times awaited us on this beautiful location!! Thank you Mary
One of our “Bucket List” trips was to go to the Rose Bowl Parade, so in December of 2013, we decided this was the year. We went to see Mary, who had arranged our trip to Lancaster England, for our granddaughter’s wedding in 2012. Many of the tours were full, as we had waited to long to start planning, but Mary worked for us and she found a wonderful tour package. We had a great time, and we met some wonderful people, and our Bucket List had another check mark off!
Since moving to St. George from Ohio, it is so comforting to have a travel agency to help us plan some extra special trips, and we are so happy we discovered the Travel Connection.
Congratulations on your 5 years, and we will continue to come visit you as we plan more trips
