Bill and I just want to thank you for all you did as we planned our most memorable cruise ever. Your services were over and above what was expected, not only on this trip but also with the planning of our daughter’s wedding in Mexico last January. I would highly recommend the 11 Day Ancient Mysteries Voyage on Holland America to everyone. The upgrades we got (thank you, thank you) for our suite made us feel like the king and queen. I would also like to thank you for the excursions you found for us in Rome and Venice. They were both awesome. We will be in touch with you soon, as we are ready to start planning our next adventure. Once again, thank you so much.

Glenna: We have booked several vacations over the years with Tri Star Travel and Cruise, from Puerto Rico and a cruise, through Nepal and Fiji, and places in between. Tri Star’s attention to detail has made travelling to our destinations a pleasure, and their recommended destinations are always fabulous. Our latest trip was to Nepal, including a 17 day trek to Mount Everest base camp, and then on to Fiji afterward for some R ‘n R. The flights were great, the connections just right, and the Tri Star staff made sure that Linda had kosher meals on all the flights.
We have already booked our 10th anniversary trip back to the Cook Islands through Tri Star, and look forward to working with them for many years to come.

January 2016 Hi Jean,
Well we are back safe and sound from our trip and we have to say that it was amazing! We literally loved every second of it. What an incredible experience it was for us. I have no idea how you picked all those places that you did. Every place was absolutely perfect for us. Every place had tours that we liked and hikes and everything. And you were right, Port Douglas was wayyy better than Cairns! I feel like we really hit like all the hot spots in Australia and New Zealand! I know you put a huge amount of work into that for us, and we thank you sooo much! I took over 2500 pictures and videos. Things were expensive out there so it might take us a bit to recover financially, but that's ok, the memories are totally worth it. It was an amazing trip, thank you thank you, all the reservations worked out perfectly. Thanks again! Bob and Kaylee
March 2016 Dear Valerie - "I have relied upon Valerie for my travel arrangements for more than eight years and have been consistently impressed by her knowledge, diligence and attention to detail. A seasoned world traveller herself, she provides excellent customer service and does extensive research to identify the airlines, hotels, etc. that will provide the best value and experience for every trip I make. Several times when, due to flight cancellations, I’ve been stuck at a ticket counter watching an agent try in vain to find alternative flights, Valerie has called me to report that upon being notified of the cancellation, she went on line herself to assess my options and found the most expedient solution. I just relayed the flight numbers to the agents who, often facing a long line of others who needed to be rerouted, were pretty grateful themselves – though not as much as I was!"

"Sherri sprung into action in scheduling a complicated Kelowna-London-Paris trip with a minimum of stops and quick layovers. She did excellent work on relatively short notice and in spite of the fact—cough, cough—I changed my mind a couple of times on dates. The price she quoted beat anything I saw online and the hotel she recommended in Paris was wonderful! Highly recommended!"

March 2017 Hi Sherri,
I have been meaning to send you an email to thank you for helping us go on the best family vacation so here it finally is!!
From Christmas morning surprising the kids to out last moment in Mexico we enjoyed everything about our holiday. The kids were so surprised they couldn’t wait to go. It was so nice to finally let them in on the secret so we could talk about all we wanted to do and hoped to see.
We made it to the Kelowna airport with lots of time to spare on the Tuesday morning to find out our flight was delayed 2 hours!! Frantically doing the mental math that would put us into Calgary with little to no time to spare….and I was right! We landed in Calgary and hit the ground running, literally! Shelby (4 year old) says are we are running through the Calgary airport “this is like Home Alone”. We made our connection just as they were boarding the last people. Phew! We made up time on our flight to Cancun and arrived 1/2 hr early.
Our hotel was beautiful and everyone so nice. Our first room was on the old side and felt dirty. We had no air conditioning and the pull out bed was torture for the kids. We switched rooms the next day to the newer section and so glad that we did. New, clean and bright.
We enjoyed everything about the resort! The staff were all so friendly and welcoming especially with the kids. The activity staff knew the boys names on day one and would call out to them to come and play and win. The food was good and the beach was perfect! We spent everyday down on the beach enjoying every moment. The 3 bay like areas were perfect for the kids to snorkel in and we even say some turtles. The kids had the system down pat ordering their own drinks and finding the beach BBQ hut for food….A moms dream!!
The lazy river was a hit! A lot of laps were done around that :)
The kids and I swam with the dolphins, which was so easy to get to (only a margarita walk away). Nice that it was on the property.
We were so glad that we went for the 10 days. 7 would not have been nearly long enough. None of us wanted to come home. We could have easily stayed another week!
We can’t wait to go on another trip….maybe this Christmas?? Any suggestions?
