"Thank you for helping with our fabulous trip to Europe and especially Paris—we loved the Hotel Regina and the location was a winner for sure. We walked everywhere! The bike tour was so fun and informative as well. The Eiffel Tower quick pass was brilliant because otherwise the line looked miserable. And our dinner on the Seine was beautiful. We loved it! Our trip was absolutely everything I had hoped for and we had the most wonderful time and have priceless memories to keep!" Ferebee H.
Our trip to South Africa was the most incredible experience of my life. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to travel to a place that I have been dreaming of ever since I can remember, and to be able to experience it with my mother -- my favorite person and travel buddy! Being able to look back on wonderful memories from a trip is of course amazing, but also being able to look back and realize just how much a country, its people, and its culture has impacted you, is truly incredible. I hope to return very very soon! A huge thank you for making this incredible trip possible! Molly R.
We had the most amazing vacation at the Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru, Maldives. The diving was wonderful. The attention to detail was unbelievable. Our 10th anniversary could not have been more celebrated. Martha’s efforts were seen throughout our stay. From the beautiful flowers, message in the bottle to the bottles of Woodford Reserve that greeted us at every meal! We’ve already started booking our next adventures with Travel with Martha!
Thank you Martha for helping our family plan such a fabulous vacation! Eclectic Greece did a great job too. Our time in Athens was just right and we enjoyed our tour of the Acropolis and the museum. Of course the private yacht charter was our favorite part of the trip! Great boat, great crew, beautiful islands and loved having a private chef. Our meals on board were fabulous. Such a relaxing and fun trip. Our 18 and 20 year old daughters enjoyed the trip as much as the 50 somethings! We were sad to leave the Kentavros II in Santorini but then loved our 4 nights on the beautiful island of Santorini. The Astro Palace was lovely and in a great location—walked to dinner every night. Barcelona was great as well—a new destination for our family. The Hotel Majestic was beautiful and well located. We appreciated the upgrade to a junior suite when we checked in. Thank you again for helping our family plan a truly once in a lifetime trip. We look forward to working with you on future trips!
You made our trip truly amazing. It was seamless. We got to the Giraffe Manor and they asked if we would like to upgrade our room from two singles to a junior family suite with no extra charge. Later that day one of the members of the staff came up and said he heard that you had helped us with the travel arrangements and sent his regards. Abercrombie and Kent was great. They were there every time we needed or expected them. It was so strange to be on a vacation where Page and I were not fighting with a rental car company or getting lost or trying to figure out the GPS. We used the word "Poof" because we were whisked away to each destination without any worries or issues. What really impressed me was the complete grasp of our desire to explore the orphanages and, by extension, the conservation efforts of the areas we visited. Completely nailed it!! The personalization of our trip was amazing!
Martha was our travel angel! Because of unforeseen circumstances, we had been unable to plan our vacation in advance. With one week’s notice, Martha put together an unforgettable trip to Costa Rica. We have never had a trip abroad like it. Instead of consuming time finding our way around, we had everything laid out for us all week. Each day held an activity we had requested, with prompt and charming drivers to delightful destinations. We soaked in hot springs, swung on zip lines, walked hanging bridges, hiked with knowledgeable guides, rode horses through the woods and on the beach, sailed and snorkeled with a fun group, and watched flaming sunsets. With so little effort on our part, we became so relaxed that we felt as if we had been away for a month. Martha, we’ll be back to you and surely back to Costa Rica!
Martha did an amazing job arranging our trip for our 30th anniversary to Bermuda. We decided to stay at Mandarin Resort at Elbow Beach where we received superb service. The food and wine selections were outstanding! Concierge was extremely helpful and the room had an amazing view of the ocean. Next time we travel, I’m calling Martha again!
It was a fantastic trip with a great group of guides and friends! The northern lights, the Arctic Circle, wandering caribou, and a dozen seals and bowhead whales swimming at the flow edge were all unique experiences. Not to mention, snowmobiling at 70 mph trying to keep up with our Inuit guides.
A very big thank you to Martha for guiding us to the Villas of Amelia Island Plantation for our wedding weekend. The service was impeccable, the food was beyond delicious, and the setting was absolutely beautiful. It was the perfect fit for our family on this special occasion. Thank you Martha!
With Spring Break coming on the heels of two very busy weeks, having Martha and Sarah take the work out of vacation planning was a real gift! Every detail was handled perfectly–from upgraded plane seats to a no waiting, personal shuttle to our ideally located, well appointed condo unit. Within an hour of our arrival we had lift tickets in hand and our “ski butler” had personally delivered our ski equipment to our door. Travel with Martha has spoiled us. We won’t be using “mom’s amateur travel agency” anymore!
My husband and I had a chance to get away for 4 nights over spring break. We contacted Martha for her assistance. She really listened to what we were looking for in our short vacation. We really just wanted a nice resort to relax. We had never been to an all inclusive resort and were nervous what to expect. Martha asked very specific questions to get the feel of what we expected. She asked about how far we wanted to travel, the dining experiences we wanted, large or smaller resort, sports options, family or a more grown up atmosphere, and if we wanted to plan excursions.
She found us a wonderful resort in Cancun. It was easy to get to and the staff was very attentive. The accommodations were wonderful and we received an immediate upgrade to an oceanfront room. The food was wonderful and the resort had good wine. There were plenty of different restaurants and bars. There were several pools and there were family areas along with areas for couples. We were always able to get a lounge chair under an umbrella on the beach.
Martha listened to our needs and wants and found a perfect match for our mini vacation. We look forward to using Travel with Martha again!
Martha has helped us with planning several trips, most recently a 10th Birthday/Spring Break trip to San Diego for our youngest son. After checking into our hotel, Bryson was presented with a delicious birthday cake and gift from Martha. He felt so incredibly special. That’s what Martha does…she makes her clients feel special.
On another note, when we landed in Chicago and I turned on my phone a text from Martha immediately popped up, “Your next flight leaves from gate 23- not too far from where you are now.” She was following our day of travel and keeping us updated as we went along. That is the personal touch we love and appreciate!
Martha, I wanted to let you know our family trip to New York exceeded my expectations! It was awesome, and we just might have created a family tradition! The New York Palace was fabulous, Mary Poppins was adorable and we were on the front row! The Christmas Show had parts in 3-D and 5-year-old Mary was beside herself. Thank you so, so much!
We engaged Martha for a Family Celebration Graduation trip. Fly fishing, golf, shooting, tours, spa, dinner reservations – Martha did it all! Every “t” was crossed, every “i” was dotted…. it was wonderful for everyone!
