Awesome week with amazing weather!
Ardene always does a great job pricing all our destinations and resorts even when we want to check out some crazy ones. We have loved having the customs paperwork sent to us filled out before hand also. We are especially thankful on this trip when our room wasn't great at first but an email was sent by us to Ardene (who was out but we were helped by Jan) and we were moved that day even though we had asked quite a few times and never gotten the issues resolved by the resort front desk.

Traveled to  Cozumel ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Ardene Emmelkamp responded:
Thanks, April, we look at that as part of our job. We want to be there for you from start to finish! And the benefit of working in an office with more agents is that we can offer that service seamlessly; even when we take a trip!
