We just returned home last night from Fiji and I wanted to drop you a note. Dale and I had a wonderful time! Everything went very smoothly with the airlines and resort reservations. Fiji was amazing! Paradise was our favorite tropical resort we have ever stayed at. We would (and hopefully will) go again!
Thank you for your help organizing our trip. We mentioned you to Allan and he spoke highly of you.

I wanted to let you know that Annie and I had a great time in Dumaguete. Every step of the trip went smoothly and the resort was fantastic. The chef made a separate gluten free menu for Annie each day, the dive masters were very accommodating, and the diving itself was first rate. Thanks for all your help..
Cheers, Mike Bamshad
Ron and I just wanted to say thank you for putting together such a great trip for all of us. I’m sure you’ll be hearing from Charlie, but we just wanted to add our two cents too, to let you know what a great trip it was. Everything went like clock-work, and, of course, Tour Director Charlie, was the best!
Also, we can’t begin to say how great Continental & the ground staff were. We’ve never seen such co-operation amongst people…..especially in Guam, Yap, Truk and Palau. It just made dealing with the many transfers & connections we had to make so much easier. You wouldn’t get this in Chicago!!!
Again, thank you from Ron and myself for putting together such a nice holiday! and, yes, the Royal Pacific Palau Hotel was worth every extra $$$. We’d stay there again in a heart-beat.
I’m sure we’ll be working with you again on some trip ideas that were discussed. so, until them, we remain, happy travelers….

I just wanted to thank you for an excellent trip, I was absolutely amazed at how smooth everything went, pick ups and drop offs, all administrative details were flawless!!!
Thank you so much for all the time you took to help me put together the itinerary too, I know I was a pain in the neck!
Here is some feedback on the places for your future clients: Kapalai was a dream of a place, I loved it!! I am SO glad we booked that instead of Mabul! The diving at Kapalai and Mabul was similar I thought, good macro, mostly good visibility, reef coming back, but Sipadan was truly excellent diving! Got there twice. Great visibility, fantastic schools of fish, etc…
Flawless vacation thanks to you and we truly had a wonderful time, thank you thank you!! I hope we can plan our next adventure with you–
Robin & John
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you MAHALO for setting up our wonderful Big Island vacation. We returned the day before yesterday and had experienced so much joy and peace (a dozen snorkeling trips, 65 species of
fish!) that we’re finding it difficult to transition back to “real life.” The Sea-Kona flight saves tons of time and is super convenient. Also, Kona-by-the-Sea did not disappoint; we miss hearing & seeing the waves!!
What a lovely experience.
We have returned from our wonderful trip to Andiamo, Bali and Singapore.
This is to report that the trip went very well and The package you put together was excellent. The logistics worked perfectly and we were met promptly everywhere, even if our plane was a couple of hours late.
We only took 3 tours in Bali; The ∏ day Cliff Temple, Fire Dance and Beach Dinner (the dinner was a disappointment), Ubed Village Tour and the Eastern Coast Bali Tour were all excellent. Lee really enjoyed the Indonesian Cooking Class!
The Sofitel Seminyak really spoiled us! It was all we could have asked for and located so that we could walk to many interesting restaurants and shopping areas….
I think you did a very good job of arranging a wonderful trip and I thank you for that.
Donna and Kim, I’ve been meaning to email you every since our Gypsy Divers group returned from Komodo and Bali, but I let my day job get in the way. I wanted to thank Donna for putting the trip together, and thank Kim for handling things when Donna was on vacation. Thanks for answering all my questions, your expertise, and attention. We all had a wonderful time on the trip.
The Komodo Dancer was great. I love the boat and the crew. Gary really knows the currents and sites in Komodo. He was able to time dives on specific sites to the most opportune times for current / conditions. His favorite dives are where you see the big stuff, and we were thrilled with our manta dives. Paul and Gede were great dive leaders who were really awesome at finding the smaller stuff. We saw so many things on the trip: pygymy sea horses, stargazers, crocodile fish, leaf scorpion fish, huge cuttle fish, sea apples, White V octopus, devil scorpion fish, an amazing array of nudibranchs. I could go on and on. The food on the boat was incredible. The large table on deck that can seat the whole group was really nice to all be able to eat together. I can’t say enough good things about “Bastian” (Sebastian), who took care of our every need while on the boat.
We loved the Nusa Dua Beach Hotel in Bali. It was paradise. The resort was beautiful and lush. The restaurants were very good and obviously convenient. And the spa and masseuses superb. I’m so glad that we added that as part of the trip before the long flights home. Bali itself was such a wonderful assault on the senses, and great to experience a place so different from home.
