Universal Studios Trip
She was amazing! She was always quick with responses when I would email her with any and all questions I had. I could not have asked for a better experience in booking this trip. She was so flexible and never got frustrated with the millions of questions or concerns we had. We had to postpone the original trip due to Covid and I was worried it would be such a pain to re do all we had done, but it couldn't of been more simple! Talk about a stress free set up with booking and all around a stress free vacation! I will ALWAYS recommend the travel agents at Travel Advantage! We have used them for years from family vacations to tropical destinations for just the two of us and its always super easy and stress free!
