It is not too early to plan your summer trips for 2019

What an exciting year it has been so far! I have had the opportunity to personalize beautiful itineraries across the globe. Thank you for allowing me to assist with your vacations to some of the most amazing places on Earth. I travel to each of these destinations with you as I plan each step of your journey.
The number one lesson I have learned this year is that the wisest thing you can do is to book your travel early! Many of my clients were surprised when they waited until just a few months prior to their trip to begin planning. The result was that they ended up in properties that were not their first choice while spending far more money than they wanted to spend. As hotels and cruises have fewer rooms available prices really soar.
The wise move is to plan in advance. It is not too early to plan your summer trips for 2019. You get a better selection of options at better prices. I already see many Spring Break destinations running out of rooms and there is very little, if any availability, in the popular “warm destination” locations for the festive time period this year. The bottom line is that more people are traveling than ever.
You deserve the BEST possible trip, not the best of what is available. Thanks for allowing me to be your travel advisor and I look forward to help plan many more of your memory making escapes.
We are back from Vietnam and ready to recommend that all of our friends plan a trip to travel there! All of the planned activities we did, and all of the places we stayed were wonderful. We were very pleased with Trails of Indochina and their service and would be happy to use them again! Also, the visa-upon-arrival service we used worked seamlessly, and I would recommend it to other travelers.
We especially were happy with the service from the tour guide that accompanied us through Hanoi and from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay and back. He was so personable and paid so much attention to the details of our travels that we really came to consider him a friend.
The Jasmine cruise on Ha Long Bay had great accommodations, delicious food, and well-planned activities. We were very glad that we stayed the two nights instead of the more popular one night option.
The Nam Hai resort was referenced to us as ‘Nirvana’ by our guide in Hoi An. He was right; the place was extremely luxurious. The two bedroom villa was gorgeous, and the attentiveness and friendliness of our butler, who showed us around town one day was much appreciated. The breakfasts here, and at the Metropole and on the cruise in fact, were all amazing and we were thrilled that they were included in our package.
I am so glad that we worked with you again to plan this trip. As you predicted, we were so glad to have had guides throughout our trip and to have the attention of guides and drivers for each transfer. Thank you for all of your hard work!
