Relaxing family fun
Selma planned a great trip for my large extended family! She included many aspects that I had not considered, including dinner reservations. Upon check in, we got upgrades thanks to Selma's reservation, so we ended up in rooms that were even more comfortable than we had anticipated! It was the perfect getaway!

Swiss Alps Dream Ski Trip
Selma planned my bucket list Swiss Alp/Zermatt ski trip this past Christmas. Normally, my husband and I are pretty hands-on with making travel plans, but having Selma on board made this experience so much easier, and fun!

She was able to find out all the nuances over Christmas, including minimum night stays. She provided many options to stay within our budget and was very responsive throughout the entire process. Being over Christmas time, it was important for us to have lunch and dinner reservations, which was hard to given the language, barrier and time difference. Selma handled all of this- included in the very nominal fee.

I can’t imagine we will plan any future trips without her. Because of her help, responsiveness, ideas, this trip was even better than I could have imagined- she is the BEST!

Fantastic Greece Trip
Selma was wonderful to work with. Her recommendations were perfect, and we were able to see everything we wanted to see. She also took into account that we were traveling with our elementary aged children. Even going in off season (November), we still had an amazing time, and were blessed with beautiful weather. Greece is an amazing country, and I would definitely recommend Crete and Rhodes!

Amazing trip, thx to flawless planning!
Working with Selma on our big group family trip was amazing! She always goes the extra mile to get every detail sorted out. This included working on flights, various ground transportation options, an amazing hotel, and then all the restaurants and activities while on site. She is so responsive and timely in all her communication. Our trip also had a number of issues for personal reasons and she was able to seamlessly troubleshoot all the issues in real time. Day or night, she helped us sort out everything that we needed.
I definitely look forward to our next trip with her!

Selma was friendly, efficient, and accessible. She took all of the stress out of planning our ski trip and helped us have a great experience. It would have taken me countless hours to research all the options, had I even known what questions to ask! She broke it down and gave us a step-by-step itinerary with everything we needed (lodging, equipment, guides, meals, transport, etc). She helped us figure out what to do when plans changed. I felt like she was in our corner the whole time!

Exceptional cruise with Selma’s expertise!
I recently returned from an incredible journey on the Celebrity Beyond, meticulously organized by Selma, and I must say, the experience was nothing short of fabulous! From the outset, Selma demonstrated utmost care and attention to detail. She ensured that our cabins were not only luxurious but also strategically located for easy access and stunning views.
Selma’s commitment to our comfort extended beyond the cruise itself; she arranged seamless transportation to and from the cruise, making our travel experience worry-free and smooth. The entire journey felt personalized and well-cared for, thanks to her diligent planning and coordination.
One of the things that stood out the most about Selma was her availability. No matter the question or need, she was there to assist, making us feel valued and taken care of every step of the way. Her dedication truly enhanced our cruising experience, and it’s safe to say, she has gained loyal clients in us., look no further than Selma!

The best trip of our lives!
Fantastic! Selma is extremely responsive (like...within minutes, always! so helpful) and will go out of her way to make sure you have everything you need for your trip. We went to the Maldives in the middle of Covid for our honeymoon and she was essential to not only planning all parts of the trip (we went through numerous versions/options for this trip given the pandemic) but in choosing the best options for us once we arrived. She was able to get us an upgrade, negotiate included meals for us (saved us SO much money), and even got us some extra honeymoon perks (massages, champagne, activities) we definitely would not have gotten if we booked alone. As mentioned, we went through numerous versions of this trip in terms of plans and resorts within the Maldives - she was so flexible through it all and provided great insight. She is extremely well traveled herself and really understands the nuances of booking travel. Can't wait to book our next trip with her!!

Unexpected Emergency, Selma was amazing!
Selma has worked with us on three trips at this point and is always very helpful. This was supposed to be a bucket list ski trip to Courcheval France- and Selma found us an amazing hotel at a great price, helped with ski intructors, train tickets etc. Unfortunately, at the last minute, we had a death in the family and were unable to go. Selma contacted the hotel and was able to get our (sizeable) deposit back, cancel our other hotels and train tickets. At such a difficult time, it was so nice that she was able to take care of everything for us. She even sent us lovley messages and had a tree planted in my father in laws honor. She is amazing and goes above and beyond!

First Class Travel Agent and Service
I was lucky to find Selma through a Facebook group I belong to. I reached out to her regarding a family trip to Greece in April. She was prompt, friendly and very attentive to our trip desires. We had a quick FaceTime call and she asked great questions on things we were looking for, must see, must do, etc. Within a few days of our initial conversation she had several itineraries for me to review. All were perfect for me and she helped figure out which one would be the best. She assisted in requesting room upgrades. She provided me with recommendations for restaurants in the destinations on our itinerary. Our tour guides, drivers, hotels were all top notch, first class. We felt all of our needs were tended to with the itinerary she recommended. I have utilized her services for another trip this fall to Croatia and cannot wait to see all of the fantastic choices she has selected.
