"The hotel was great. Great staff and a cozy place. It was probably about 15 minutes from the nearest town but the restaurant there was good and we were treated very well. The cooking class that was part of the package was well beyond our expectations. The chef was very personable and the menu was superb. Chef had some great stories as well as shared some great cooking secrets. Florence was fantastic and the walking tour was great. Our guide was excellent." -Greg

"Doug has been pleasant, diligent, persistent when needed and willing to accommodate all our requests. He has an excellent eye for detail. We are very pleased with the arrangements he has worked out for us. We are grateful that you assigned us to an agent as capable as he. I hope you’ll pass this along to him. Best wishes to all at AmFund!" -Fred

"I wanted to thank you for helping create the wonderful visit to Alaska for my sister and I back in August (sorry took so long to drop a thank you note). We had a wonderful time on Princess and each of the stops was awesome. The room choice made all the difference in Glacier Bay and thank you for your helping in choosing a good balcony room. I am very sad that you guys do not offer regular vacation planning because I would use again and again for my cruise vacations. :)"-Farheen

The cooking class lasted 4 hours with a very informative, patient, and entertaining private chef. Thank you for all the arrangements you made for us." -Tim

"My wife and I went on a 12 day trip to South Africa and Victoria Falls. We wanted to have several Safaris's, enjoy Capetown, go cage diving to see the great white sharks and more in South Africa. Because several activities were weather dependent, we needed a lot of flexibility in our schedule. They achieved that and more. They are the most responsive travel company we have ever dealt with. Quick responses to our emails and questions. Follow-ups to make sure we were enjoying ourselves." -Steve

We had an ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS time on our James Bond Trip…. One of our BEST vacations EVER!!!. Given we were able to bid on this trip through a fundraiser which may not be an annual event, Is there a way for us to have line of sight to events which you participate in for other non- profits which will allow us opportunities to bid on these phenomenal packages while supporting well deserving organizations? We would love to be able to bid on some of your other packages. Let me know…." -Deena
