Customer Testimonials

Egypt and Nile Cruise

Just got back from our Egypt trip and had to write you a note with a big THANK YOU. All the travel arrangements went beautifully, the properties where we stayed were first-rate and the sites we visited awe-inspiring. I think the extra days could have been challenging for the guides but Abercrombie & Kent and Kensington did a great job of finding things off-the-beaten-track for us to see. The experience was much more intimate . We've used Rose for a few trips and have found that her level of service and the quality of her recommendations has always exceeded what we expected. In this case, pulling together multiple tour companies to handle different phases of the itinerary worked without a hitch and helped us see things not normally included with a shorter visit. We couldn't have managed the multiple airline schedule changes and cancellations without her able help.

Hawaii our Way

Our experience with Rose was exceptional. Rose was very attentive to what we were looking for and what our style was when it comes to traveling. She offered multiple packages at different prices to fit our range which was helpful to see. Rose has expert knowledge of traveling to Hawaii and what to do/ where to stay. We stayed the majority of the trip in Maui and Kauai at the Hyatt hotels and couldn't have been happier with the hotel choice. They are truly beautiful hotels and first class when it comes to their service. You will be beyond pleased with the resort environment of these two hotels, especially their pools, beaches, location, golf courses, dining options, and hotel services. Planning a honeymoon or long trip (2 weeks) can be stressful with everything that goes into it. Rose planned everything for us from flights, hotels, excursions, transportation to and from the hotel/airport, rental cars, etc. We truly didn't have to lift a finger and that was the best part.

Hawaiian Honeymoon

This is our third time booking a trip with Rose! She takes the stress out of any trip planning process. When choosing a destination for our honeymoon Rose helped us feel confident in our plans. In the days leading up to the trip when there was some uncertainty about travel to the state of Hawaii, she offered to check in with clients who had just returned from Hawaii to help allay any fears. She ensured that every logistical detail was covered from accommodations and car rental to excursion recommendations. A big highlight of the trip was a snorkeling excursion to Hanalei Bay in Maui that was a recommendation of Rose. We were fortunate to have a smaller group for this and our guides were able to give us some extra attention, which was great as first-time snorkelers. Doing your own research can be overwhelming but Rose helps narrow it down to make decisions easier. Rose recommends things she’s experienced in her own travel, so you can trust if Rose is recommending it, then it’s the best!

A Dream Honeymoon to Italy and Greece 2021

Rose is amazing! Our honeymoon plans were ambitious and challenges were compounded by the pandemic, but Rose was there every step of the way and worked tirelessly to make sure all of our plans remained intact and travel was smooth. Leading up to our trip our flights were cancelled by the airline multiple times (one airline even folded!), but Rose stayed in communication with us and was able to protect us on the cancelled flights, and rebook us on very convenient and comfortable flights. I don't know what we would have done without her! On top of that, our hotel accommodations were spectacular, and the tours and activities she booked were excellent. Thank you Rose for helping make our honeymoon unforgettable!

Hawaii Honeymoon Success!

Rose is such a joy and pleasure to work with! She most recently planned my honeymoon to Hawaii. My husband and I were so busy with wedding planning that we didn't have much time to do research on places to stay, visit, dine, etc. Rose took the stress out of all of this planning and organized and planned a honeymoon we will truly never forget. Rose knew we were on a budget but that we also wanted to truly enjoy ourselves after all of the stress of planning our wedding. She took consideration of all of our requests and thought of things we would not have without her. The accommodations she made for us were unbelievable and we never wanted to leave! Rose is extremely knowledgeable as she has been working as a travel agent for many years. Her experience shows as she provides extensive feedback on different locations, hotels, restaurants, etc, and is always honest! Rose provides upbeat energy while making herself readily available to help. We cannot wait to use her for future trips!

Group Travel to Italy

I have been working with Rose for a few weeks now, planning a trip to Rome and Sorrento for eight family/friends and it has been such a wonderful experience, I had to find someone to whom I can sing her praises. I 'met' Rose through a google search and I'm so happy I went with my reaction to her online profile/picture which seemed like a friendly caring person. And she is! She listens, she adjusts, she persists, she explains, she does a wonderful job of providing service in a professional and friendly manner. We've changed our minds, changed our cities, changed our times and she's unflappable. She has managed to get us on a well priced trip that includes the tours and free time. During the process, she has fielded calls from almost everyone in the group and each has told me how great she was on the phone. We are so excited and we feel like we have been working with someone who's a friend, not a stranger at all. You should be proud to have Rose on your team!

Luxury Cruise Client Testimonial

Just got back from a Windstar cruise that began in Singapore and stopped in Malaysia and Thailand. The cruise was marvelous. The crew on the Star Pride was attentive, friendly, and professional-and the food was, to say the least, excellent. The best part of the trip, however, was Rose Cacciatore, our trip adviser from Travel Leaders. She did the worrying for us and made a complicated trip simple. Rose recommended the right travel insurance, booked flights on Singapore Air. She also arranged excellent private tours in Singapore with Trails of Indochina, a superb company. In short, we have Rose to thank for a trip that we will always remember.

Great trip to Italy!

We returned from the most amazing two-week visit to Italy and wanted to thank you for planning such a memorable trip. Every detail of the trip was seamless and we were able to just sit back and thoroughly enjoy each destination including Rome, Florence, Venice and Positano. The hotels were outstanding and in such great locations. The private tours/drivers is the absolute way to go! The drivers and private tours allowed us to get so much more out of the trip. We bypassed the long lines at all the major sights. The train system with assigned seats was a comfortable, easy way to travel between cities. At each destination the driver was waiting to take us to our hotel in that city. We never had to wait for the driver or worry that we would not be picked up. The drivers and guides went above and beyond to accommodate every request. We would not have learned or experienced so much of Italy without the private tours/drivers. We can't wait to plan our next destination with you!

Thanks you Roesmarie
Very easy to work with came up with good ideas with this last minute request. We needed to be more engaged to improve the timing of events. We loved Normandy and our Art Tour of Von Gogh!

Honeymoon in Hawaii
Rose was very easy to work with and wants to put together the best possible trip for you. This is the second time I’ve planned a trip with Rose and both have resulted in great experiences. She was able to get us great flights and great resorts on all 3 islands (Oahu, Kauai, Maui). Her suggestions on excursions and restaurants were also very helpful. Using Rose’s services definitely helped take away the stress of planning and 2 week vacation. Will absolutely be using Rose again.

European River Cruise on Avalon
We could not have planned this trip without Rosemarie’s help.
We had always wanted to go on a River Cruise and didn’t know
where to begin.Having been on a river cruise herself she was a wealth of knowledge . From picking which cruise company to choose to arranging our flight she was invaluable.She was available anytime we had any questions and made the whole process easy.

Excellent Alaska Cruise
Rosemarie was very helpful in finding an excellent deal on a luxury Alaska Regent cruise. Our cruise met our expectations based on Rosemarie's description and what we wanted. She took care of travel insurance as well. We mentioned that it was a special occasion trip and had nice surprises during the cruise (one from Rosemarie, one from the cruise line.)
