Thelma did an amazing job at planning our honeymoon. We did a three day stint at Universal Studios in FL and then four days in the Dominican Republic. Thelma was beyond helpful and knowledgeable about everything down to the CV19 implications as well. Thelma was our first travel agent/coordinator and we will definitely be using her again. If you are on the fence about her service, I could not recommend her more.

Not enough good can be said about Thelma. From her promptness to her wisdom to her patience, all completely exceeded my expectations. This was my first time using a travel agency, and I was a little weary. Thelma made it seamless. And, wow! She found us a great selection of resorts to choose from for our stay in Mexico and kept us in budget. I also wanted options for the DR and Costa Rica, for which she both provided awesome options. She gave us tips and trips along the way, helped with a complaint we had for the resort, confirmed our transportation to and from the airport, and more. My partner and I will use her again and again.

After having a bad experience with a different travel agent, it was such a relief to find Thelma! She was a quick responder and answered the many questions I had. She is also very knowledgeable, which is exactly what we needed because this will be my fiancé and I'm first trip by ourselves! We are not traveling until next year, but I'm so happy I found her!

    This is an industry we endless possibilities, therefore you never stop learning. I am Certified by Disney, Universal and all of the major Cruise Lines. I take as many online courses and attends as many webinars as possible throughout my week. I believe the experience is the best school, so I travel as often as possible and I learn from every and each trip my customers take

    I love to travel and have done so since I was very little. I major in Travel Management and have been planning trips for families around the globe for almost 5 years now.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Getting to know the world is my passion, and now that I have a kids I have learned to make those trips with them so I specialize in family vacations. I can plan an unforgettable Disney or Universal vacation as easy as a Spring Break at an All Inclusive Resort or a trip to Paris.
