I feel I owe you a quick note of thanks/feedback re our trip to London this past July

Jason, Nepean - (trip to London UK)
Hi Alex, I feel I owe you a quick note of thanks/feedback re our trip to London this past July - we chatted briefly I think prior to our Caribbean cruise you booked for us back in March. As per your suggestion, we travelled to London prior to July 20 and, though it was v crowded, I think it was much better than the post July 20 crowd would have been. Somehow we missed all the rain as it only seemed to rain when we were indoors. We are history buffs and certainly got our fill with Hampton Court palace as well as the many museums in central London. We got a good deal at the Marriot at Canary Wharf, also, and luckily it was only a 100 M from where the tour de France passed so we got to see that too. The tube made distances effectively irrelevant during our stay.
Take care,
Jason

We would definitely return there without hesitation and recommend it to anyone.

Debra from Ottawa - (trip to Orlando FL USA)

I just wanted to thank you for setting up our Disney trip.The Art of Animation Hotel was amazing. Not just the decorations and service but the space for the 5 of us. We would definitely return there without hesitation and recommend it to anyone. It was worth the extra. Thanks again for everything.

Alex, you answered all of my many questions and as a result, the right vacation was selected for our family. A big thank you!

Nicole from Ottawa - (trip to Montego Bay Jamaica)

Hi Alex,
We had a wonderful trip at the Montego Bay Iberostar Rose Hall Beach resort during the March Break. Everything was as you described. Location and hotel was beautiful, clean and spacious. The boys enjoyed the freedom of having their own room 5 doors away on the same floor. We obtained the third floor as we requested. Staff are very friendly, entertaining and talented. Lots to do for our teenage boys. They made friends the first day and enjoyed many activities with them and us (parents). We didn't feel the need to visit off the resort for our first week-long visit. If we went a second time, we would plan an excursion or two. The food was very good and service excellent at buffet and 3 restaurants. Many of the guests that week were from Canada, especially Ontario. Weather was perfect all week long. Shows were good and the audience participation-type of shows were entertaining. I felt safe on this resort and recommend it especially to families. Older children and teenagers were having fun without necessarily having their parents around. Alex, you answered all of my many questions and as a result, the right vacation was selected for our family. A big thank you!

Disney really does a wonderful job!

Hi Alex…just wanted to drop a quick line to say thank you very much for your help in booking this cruise…we had a great time. We actually put in a request/deposit for a future cruise so I’m sure we’ll be in touch regarding that.

Anyway….thanks again…Disney really does a wonderful job!

Your expertise and patience was greatly appreciated!

Claudine from Gatineau - (trip to Walt Disney World Resort Lake Buena Vista FL 32830 USA)

Bonjour Alex,

Just a few words to say thank you for the great support and advice you provided us with. Our first trip to Disney went smoothly and we had a really good time. Your expertise and patience was greatly appreciated!

... and thanks for recommending that we go the Magic Kingdom and the castle the first day - the magic worked! ;-)

Claudine :-)

Thank you again for setting up a great trip

Stephen T., Ottawa - (trip to Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica)

Thank you again for setting up a great trip. Great hotel (very good restaurant), great beach, lots of fun day trips (family surf lessons in Tamarindo ---my daughter surfed with a dog, rainforest adventure in  Buena Vista, day trip to cloud forest in riu celeste, and for me, a day trip to Nicaragua that included Granada, Masaya market and Volcano, as well as a single track mountain bike day up at playa danta about 15 minutes from playa flamingo).

Thanks Edmundo ...we have sent a few people your way including Jerome and Jayne who you set up in Cuba.

You have informed us very well

Nguyen T, Ottawa - (trip to Varadero, Cuba)

Hello Edmundo,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help in finding and booking our family vacation. You have informed us very well and have been very patient to answer all our questions. My brother and sister are very pleased with your service.

We will be sure to seek your advice again in our future travels.

All the best to you and your family,

Nguyen

THANK YOU for the wonderful advice and steering us in the right direction

Susheel G, Ottawa - (trip to Christ Church, Barbados)

 

Hi Edmundo,

Sorry for the delay in responding back to you and for not writing you upon our return. 2 days after returning from Barbados, I had to travel for work.  As to the holiday, it was wonderful. The weather in Barbados was wonderful with clear sunny days, with 30-40 minutes of rain each day.  We did several day tours which were wonderful and the staff at the resort were great. All in all, I would highly recommend the resort to any future clients of yours. And again, THANK YOU for the wonderful advice and steering us in the right direction towards a trip that was exactly what we were looking for. I don’t think we would have considered Barbados and those particular resorts had it not been for you.

I have already referred one of my neighbours......I told them that the advice and service you provided was well worth it and we had a much more enjoyable holiday because of your service which I doubt we would have had had we blindly booked a trip off the Net and a travel site.  We’ll be calling you for your services and more great advice then.

Thanks again Edmundo and I hope to refer you to several more friends....

All the best my friend.

Sush

Thank for suggesting it Edmundo. Bougainvillea Beach Resort, Barbados.

Donna M, Ottawa - (trip to Christ Church, Barbados)

 

Hi Edmundo,
 
We had a great time. The resort was lovely and the staff were very friendly and accomodating. We had a ground floor room right next to the pool - it was spacious and clean.
The beach was really lovely too. The waves were quite strong so the kids didn't spend too much time in the water at the resort - we went on day trips to other beaches on the West side of the island and Carlisle Bay or we swam in the pool. Overall it was a great trip and I would highly recommend the resort. The Oistens fish fry on Friday night was fun and the Harrison caves were amazing.
 
Thank for suggesting it Edmundo.
 
Regards,
 
Donna.

Edmundo you made the perfect recommendation for our family

Carolyn B, Ottawa - (trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic)

 

Hi Edmundo,
 
WOW. We were really impressed and we had a ball.
 
The advice you gave us was perfect. I pre-printed our boarding passes for our flight to Punta Cana. Good advice. It saved us so much time in Montreal on a very busy travel day. We were greeted at the airport in Punta Cana and our family was driven by mini van to the resort. Our exit from the airport was effortless.
 
Our rooms were located at the outer edge of the property and that suited us fine. The rooms were ideal for our family, too. The kids took one room and Clarke and I had the other just down the hall, connected. The set up worked brilliantly. The beds were comfy...I haven't slept so soundly in a loooong time.
 
What can I say about Club Med Punta Cana other than it was really a piece of heaven. We went to the beach all day every day...the white sand and the colours of that warm ocean and the palm trees were beyond description. The kids were thrilled to experience a real tropical vacation. We never went to the pool as we are true beach bums. Our family is outgoing so the teens met lots of other teens from all over. Kyle made friends with some of the GOs from Haiti and really enjoyed working on his French to engage them in conversation about their homelands and to share with them a little about ours. We had fun picking up a little Spanish too. All of the staff was fantastic and welcoming. We never felt that there was a lack of English...we were in a foreign country and we embraced the different languages and customs.
 
The buffets were excellent. The food was amazing, especially on the last night for the Gala. Desserts were soooo tempting and yummy and my girls and I had never had papaya or passion fruit before. My mouth waters thinking about the wonderful assortment of fruits. We had passion fruit with every meal. We found there was enough variety and something for everyone. We ate at the Hispanola (outdoor) and we really loved the breezy feeling. We dined on our second night at Samana (indoor) restaurant but never went back (except to get ice cream- Clarke and Shannon love the soft serve). We found it to be noisey and loud... at least on the night we went. I think we really couldn't get enough of the warm breezes and the smell of the ocean. We had lunches at the beach bar and found it to be quick and tastey.
 
We always felt safe and secure. The teens (aged 16 and 18) would spend time with their new friends, playing volley ball or dancing at the bar in the evening after the show. We felt they could branch out on their own and we didn't feel like we had to always be close by. They are good kids, too, so that helps.
 
We took and excursion, booked through the resort. "Wild Safari" which took us out to the countryside, through Higuey and to the cathedral. It was important for the kids to see the countryside and to see how very lucky we are in Canada. We saw and got to taste sugar cane. I will never think of something I take for granted quite the same way again. We went to the ranch on the Chavon river for kayaking and zip lining and a real Dominican meal. Really...I went zip lining! My kids were so proud of me...it was so far out of my comfort zone but it was also the most empowering thing I have ever done in my life. Clarke and the kids all said, "now you are afraid of NOTHING". I think they are correct! The guide was informative and funny.
 
Our vacation at Club Med Punta Cana was everything we could have hoped for and more. It exceeded all of our expectations and came home rested and tanned.From the hospitality of the staff to the beach to the food to the activities... it was truely the benchmark we will comepare everything to. I know for years to come we will begin conversations with. "remember when we went to Club Med?..Remember how amazing it was?..."
 
Alicia (11 years old) and I took a walk on the beach the last day just before we got the shuttle to the airport and we were pretty envious of those who were not going home that day. We were all feeling a little down and pretty sad to be leaving.
 
Edmundo you made the perfect recommendation for our family. We had a wonderful time. We are already beginning conversations that sound like, "when we go back to Punta Cana..." we will certainly be back to book with LTTK.
 
Thanks ans all the best,
 
Carolyn B
Ottawa, Ontario
