Cari helped us book our early 2020 cruise to Mayan ruin sites in Mexico. Her diligent, knowledgeable and friendly assistance left us more energy for the fun parts -- traveling and exploring!!"

"I contacted Cari when my daughter was singing on a cruise ship and I was traveling to see her, in Asia, on my own. I wanted to start and end my trip in places I knew nothing about and I am not a seasoned traveler. Cari helped me navigate language issues, change of plans in Hong Kong, flight cancellations and more. I could not have been in better hands and my trip was absolutely perfect and unforgettable. I absolutely love Vacation with Cari Travels and would not travel without Cari again.”

“Whether it is booking dream vacations, easing travel jitters, answering the many questions thrown her way, or even helping in the sudden & unfortunate trip cancellation (thank goodness for travel insurance), can I just say that Cari really listens! She pays attention to what you say, to the concerns you express, and even those that you may not voice. It was as if she knew me after our first conversation and was immediately making recommendations that fit my personality/travel style. Cari is so much more than a travel agent, but a friend who is excited and happy to help you book an amazing vacation every time! I would recommend Cari to anyone looking to book trips both locally and abroad! She is currently helping to fill my 2019 with incredible trips and I look forward to many more to come.”

“Cari has planned four trips for us. She takes care of everything! The planning is easy and stress free and when it comes time to depart all the details are set. Cari is super easy and fun to work with.”

My husband and I decided to travel to Rome, Italy with a side trip (smack in the middle) to Bologna. Neither one of us wanted to plan it. Enter Cari Travels. The trip was the easiest trip I have ever planned. Because I did not plan it. Cari Travels thought of everything! I even cancelled the Bologna trip and Cari Travels was EXTREMELY accommodating. Not a single hiccup on the trip. It was perfect!! Please, take advantage of any tips and tours, in advance. We never waited in long lines and had a huge selection of tours. We will use Cari Travels again. Six out of five stars :)"

“My two sisters, their husbands, and I planned our first family trip to Cancun, Mexico with Cari Travels. From the beginning of our planning, Cari was AMAZING. She suggested fantastic all-inclusive resorts that fit our needs and interests. Cari was incredibly responsive while helping us to arrange our unique travel situation (we were flying out of three different states trying to arrive in Mexico around the same time).
In the middle of the night hours before my family and I were scheduled to depart, four of our flights were canceled due to weather-related issues at our connecting airport. Cari worked tirelessly throughout the night to reschedule us onto new flights that minimized our travel disruptions. She was such an invaluable resource, and I really believe that without her help we definitely would have missed at least some of our vacation days in Mexico.
I can't thank you enough, Cari, and I will definitely be using your services in the future. You're the best!”

My wife and I did extensive research on possible honeymoon destinations, travel agents, deals, etc. and we came across Cari with Cari Travels. We asked her for help in planning our honeymoon because there is just so much information out there and she totally knocked it out of the park for us. Not only is she super professional, but is extremely informative and genuinely cares about her clients. We never felt like we were anything less than her #1 priority. She answered all of our million and one questions, replied promptly to all of our e-mails or would let us know when she needed more time to reply. She gave us many options but also didn't push us to any particular one. We ended up choosing the all inclusive The Royal at Playa Del Carmen for our one week trip. Cari even booked flights and private transportation for us. We knew we got a great deal on our trip and had such an awesome time there. So much so, that we are working with Cari again to book our anniversary trip to The Royal once more. We have declared Cari our official travel agent. Thank you so much Cari for all of your help. You totally rock!!

"We wanted to take our daughter to Los Angeles CA for a high school graduation gift. She wants to get in the movie business, so it was to include Hollywood, but we wanted some relaxation time too. We have never been to LA so I was very wary of booking hotels myself in some awful area. Not only did Cari find us a great, yet affordable hotel, but she recommended Redondo Beach for the 2nd part of the trip, and lots of tour offerings. This wasn’t just booking a cruise or island retreat. It involved airlines, car rental, 2 hotels and tours and Cari did it all. We will definitely use her services again. She even sent my daughter a graduation card, how nice is that."
Bonnie L., Sterling, VA (Southern California 2016)
"We are a military family, and came across Cari in our base's community page. We had been married for over a year but never had a honeymoon. We reached out to Cari about wanting an all-inclusive beach honeymoon. I made it clear that I am not good with planning details and as a busy working mom of 3 kids and pregnant with our 4th, I didn't want to take on the responsibility of planning such a big vacation. Cari responded within hours of me reaching out to her, she made sure she knew exactly what we were looking for, and she provided multiple packages for us to choose from. We decided on a butler resort in Jamaica, and Cari took care of all of our travel needs-like making sure we had private transportation from the airport to the hotel with drinks & snacks on board, and ensuring that we had access to the private lounge in the airport on our return flight home. In the process of booking our vacation, Cari and I became friends, then our families became friends, and we have enjoyed birthdays, wine festivals, and girl's nights out together. I was hesitant to become friends with someone who also provides a service, because I have used friends for business in the past and they have let me down by providing poor service simply because of our friendship. Cari is NOT that way. She provides the most professional services for everyone! I have since referred her to friends from college, friends from the military, my sister, and broadcast her services all over social media to let everyone know that she is the best. Thank you, Cari, for providing my family and friends with amazing vacations they will never forget!"

“I've booked two last minute Disney trips with Cari. She was fantastic in her quick follow-up and results, securing everything needed within time and budget allowed. She also helped guide me through the vacation ensuring my family would have a great time. She's the travel planner you need to help you, don't do it alone.” (Testimonial 2018)
"Thanks for your awesome service, advice and quick turnaround! I'm looking forward to my family's Disney vacation!" (Testimonial 2015)
