Hi Mary - I just wanted to thank you for your help booking my recent trip to Mexico as part of the Shay/Clark wedding. It turned out to be a fantastic trip and a beautiful wedding. I also wanted to thank Marie (I didn’t catch her last name) for her help with my passport crisis the day before I left. She calmly talked me off the ledge and gave me great instructions to get a new passport. Thanks again!  Marialaina

Mary - I wanted to thank you for helping us plan the trip we always dreamt of taking. Jim and I had a wonderful time. Everything was so easy from the time we arrived at the airport until we landed back in Philadelphia. The food was fantastic and the excursions were well worth every penny spent. We have even discussed going back and staying in the Grand or traveling to the Bahamas for next summer!  Jen
