It is not our business model to compete with other agents, or on price. Our goal is to get you the best value, with the best price on your vacation, as is the goal for most agents. We only get paid for our time, experience, and knowledge when people book with us. We wouldn't want that to happen to us, so we won't do it to anyone else.
We've been blessed to be very busy while still operating our agency business with these ethics in place. And we realize not all agents are matches for everyone for any number of reasons.
We appreciate all of the kind words, referrals and repeat business that have come our way, and the opportunity to serve you. ♥ We could not do it without you. ♥

LeAnne & Jim,
I wanted to let you know that my family and I had a great time on our first cruise and I think the expericence was even better because of your advice and tips starting in Galveston and throughout the entier 7-day cruise. I invested zero time into planning this trip so I owe a lot of thanks to you and Laura for putting the whole thing together. We really enjoyed eating dinner with y'all every night. Chase and I were talking just last night and he confessed that his favorite part of the cruise was the dinner every night. :-) Anyway just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for all the help booking the trip and then the little helpful nuggets of info you shared with us during the cruise.

YUou were a great help and we really appreciated all the advice while we were putting things together up front. We will certainly pass the word that you are the person to see for travel.
