We really enjoyed arriving in Tahiti and having everything taken care of. I always wanted to arrive at the airport and have someone holding a sign with my name on it. 😁 Also wanted to share with you there were other people using travel agents and they Did Not get the treatment we got. With that being said Thank you and your company for taking such good care of us.

I wanted to say thanks for helping us set up an amazing trip. We are home safe & sound! Everything was wonderful-- I am so happy you recommended the Shark & Ray tour on Bora Bora-- it was by far our favorite thing that we did! We ended up relaxing on Taha'a as it was the most perfect place to unwind and get massages. All of the hotels were awesome-- Le Taha'a Resort and The Conrad were our favorites! We absolutely loved our beach bungalow (it was huge!!)
