Our trip to Japan was a roaring success for our whole family and without your extraordinary efforts this wonderful time might never have happened!
It was no small feat trying to get to Japan in the wake of a major typhoon and an earthquake. This was really one for the record books, but your efforts on our behalf certainly rose to the level of difficulty with which we were faced.
We will never forget your exceptional devotion to making our trip happen. What an example you are of someone who does her job very, very well. Now that we are left with extremely happy memories, we want you to know that our gratitude to you will always be part of those memories.

So much fun!! Seven adults and seven grandchildren ranging from 13 to 22 loved the resort and all it offered. The VIP service made the week special. Our travel agent, Mary Mages made all the arrangements from OHare to our return. Fabulous job, fabulous week!!!

Thank you for our perfect two week trip to the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Everything was perfect from the drivers who picked us up to the hotel rooms and finally the activities that [were] planned for us.
A few highlights that we felt were particularly outstanding are as follows:
All our hotels, room location and views were great. The terrace [at our hotel] in Positano was huge with a view directly to the harbor. We had breakfast there each morning. Nothing could have been better.
Two cooking classes each were great and I would recommend both to anyone who has an interest in food and wine. One was in a local home, the other in an actual restaurant. So each was a different experience.
Finally, just the overall level of service was unsurpassed everywhere. We had no worries or problems during our entire trip. It was definitely a trip we will always remember, and as you know, we are looking to go to Africa with your help next year.
[We] would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends. Thanks again for your help.

We just wanted to give a big thank you for your help and coordination of our trip. We had an excellent time in both places and even anticipate another visit to Norway some time in the extremely distant future (see you there?) It's been a busy year, so it was very helpful to hand off all the details....and you did a great job!

Alaska was a WOW! Words cannot express the vastness and beauty of that place...[W]e got to see every peak, every glacier, every sea lion, every eagle, every bear (4, but not too close) and every other flora and fauna.
[The cruise company] perfectly choreographs the trip. The food was outstanding (and way too plentiful) and the cabins were incredibly well-designed and outfitted. We slept like babies. ... [I]t is wonderful to be able to open the sliding doors and watch the scenery go by, air out the cabin or check the weather. Taking trips on the Zodiacs was a blast and enabled us to get really close to the amazing sights, sounds and wildlife.
Overall, it was amazing and I already miss the air there. It is like nothing else. I thought I had seen a lot of beautiful places, but this is the ultimate.

There are not enough thank yous that we can say to express how perfect the family trip that you put together for us was.
From the time we arrived til we all went, everything went seamlessly. The transportation- all were good drivers, or boat captains, pleasant, and shared their favorite spots with us. The hotels were lovely and had wonderfully helpful staff. The breakfasts could feed an Amazon- kids were thrilled with the number of croissants they could eat. The tours and guides were knowledgeable and seemed to know how to engage the kids.
You know it is a good vacation when no one wanted it to end. You have made our family celebration most memorable.
We have friends here who want to do the same family adventure. So you can bet we are singing your praises.

We are back from our amazing trip to Tanzania! Just wanted to send you a note
to tell you just how fabulous the trip was. [The tour operator] went over and above with their
escorting us and providing us with fabulous guides. Our trip was without a single
hitch. We loved the country and the people; the national parks were fabulous and
the tented camps were friendly, comfortable and lots of fun.
Thank you for making our arrangements so that the trip was seamless, so much so,
we all want to go back!

Thanks again for such a great trip. [My travel partner] said yesterday "best trip" she's ever been on... favorite place I've ever visited and that has much to do with the perfect planning.

The trip was UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!! Vietnam especially--we are obsessed with Vietnam and can't wait to go back. Particularly wonderful things that deserve shoutouts include: The [Hanoi] hotel (you were so so right about that one!), our Northern Vietnam guide, Ha Nguyen, who really went above and beyond to give us the perfect experience, Ha Long Bay (we got good weather! No monsoons!), the hotel in Hoi An and the Vespa tour.
Thank you so, so much for making this trip-of-a-lifetime happen for us, especially on such short notice. I'm sure we'll be using your services again in the future!

I had a great experience working with Jennie and Travel 100 Group. My wife and I were looking for a relaxing vacation on the west coast. From the moment I ran my initial thoughts for a trip through Jennie she was engaging and prepared to help in whatever capacity she could. Jennie booked reservations for us at three different resorts, helping to explain the pros and cons of each, and allowed us to take our time before determining where we would stay. Before we left for the trip, Jennie ensured that our itinerary was fully developed through the Pocket Travel Application on our phones. We wound up at the Park Hyatt Aviara Hotel in Carlsbad, California, which was an amazing resort. What made it even the more sweeter was the great room rate, free daily breakfast and the welcome gifts we received as we were connected through the Signature travel network. Through the whole trip, I knew if I had any concerns along the way Jennie would be there to ensure that it was taken care of. Thank you for helping to plan a wonderful vacation!

This is the trip of a lifetime. Great Barge, fabulous venue... The chef, and cheese and wine steward are fabulous. Best meals ever! They need to do a better job marketing the culinary focus of this trip. Outstanding. Thank you Chick. You have outdone yourself.

We had a fantastic time in Florence. The hotel was perfect. We loved being on Piazza Santa Maria Novella with so much activity and beautiful setting. The hotel treated us to dinner at their restaurant on the Piazza on our last night, which was a real treat. There was a guitarist playing Italian songs on the Piazza all through our dinner...
Chiara, our guide, was also fantastic. She quickly understood our preferences and we had a great day. We spent our last day doing an all day Chianti bike tour just south east of Florence, which was a great contrast to our day in the city.
Thanks again for all your help with our trip!

As you can tell, we had a wonderful time. There is no way to properly thank you for the time and effort you put into our custom trips. This will be the trip of a lifetime for [our granddaugher], and you made it possible.
