Adventurous Vietnam and Thailand

Hanoi Vietnam Alexander.JPG

Nikki put together a 2-week honeymoon for my husband and I to Thailand and Vietnam.  I would like to start off by saying she listened to exactly what we wanted out of the trip.  I simply told her we aren't the museum-going type of clients, that we prefer to be outdoors and love challenging physical activities.  She NAILED it with our activities!

In Vietnam, we went on a 3 day cruise on Halong Bay on the Heritage Cruise Lines boat The Violet. This was our favorite thing we did the entire trip.  This Vietnamese, luxurious, relaxing cruise was unbelievable- we cruised around a chain of 1900 islands for 3 days.  We hiked into a monkey cave, we kayaked through a fishing village, and we visited a beach.  This is an absolute MUST if you ever want to see Halong Bay

Next she sent us to Ho Chi Minh city- while the cruise was our favorite activity we did, this city was our favorite of them all.  We learned so much about the exporting system here and were able to visit many historical things that helped us to understand what Vietnam runs on- rice exporting being number one.  

While in Ho Chi Minh, we drove out to the Mekong Delta and did a guided, day cruise.  On this cruise, we rode bicycles through the rice fields, learned to make rice paper in a local's very own home, and enjoyed a 5 course meal on the water at the end of the day.  We would highly suggest this day trip if you ever find yourself near Ho Chi Minh.

Next we flew to Chiang Mai.  While there, we visited an elephant sanctuary.  This was a very neat experience.  We also visited the night market both nights we were there- this is where they shut a main street down and local vendors set up shop every night of the week for a few hours to sell their goods.  This was great for getting all of our souvenirs for the trip!

After Chiang Mai, our last stop was Koh Samui- an island off the coast of Thailand.  We stayed at a beach resort for 2 days of rest and relaxation.  

We appreciate Nikki for all of her hard work she did putting this trip of a lifetime together for us.  She listened to what we wanted to get out of this trip and truly delivered.  Thank you Nikki!  We will be back!! ~Kara & Chip

Cancun Couples Getaway

Thank you so much to Nikki for hleping us plan an amazing vacation. We apprectated your assistance in helping us find the right resort for this trip. It was so reassuring knowing that we could contact you through the travel app with any qeustions we had. We loved how you checked in with us a few times during our trip, it helped us know that we were not traveling alone and if needed backup was only a message away. 

My husband and I were looking to take a vacation and we simply love Mexico so again decided to go back. We got married 7 years ago in Riviera Maya so needless to say Mexico holds a special place in our hearts.  We traditionally stay at smaller boutique style all inclusive adults only resorts however this time we decided to do something a bit different! Let's just be clear we stuck with the ADULTS only part :-).  We decided to stay in Cancun this time around and thanks to Nikki we chose the Riu Palace Las Americanas.  I was a bit nervous to try a significantly larger resort but thought as long as their are drinks, pools and food we'd be good. 

 

We were picked up from the airport by a shared transfer and arrived at our resort at 1:00pm.  The lobby was truly amazing. It overlooked the infinity pool and just over that was the beautiful blue ocean! The woodwork and paintings in the lobby were spectacular as well.  We were greeted with champagne and a very friendly staff going above and beyond to help us and get us checked in.  Once checked in they brought our bags up to our room.  We stayed in an Jr. Suite partial ocean view. A fabulous room to us isn't that big of a deal. We have stayed in Villas, have had our own private pools and hot tubs etc.  A basic room is fine for us as well.  The room was clean, big and very welcoming!!!.  The bathroom was huge which was a nice plus!!!!!

This resort while bigger than where we've previously stayed kept things close together so it didn't feel so big.  There were 3 pools. 2 infinity one regular.  Two were quieter pools while the other had lots of music and action.  The service around the pool for drinks was awesome! It wasn't packed but busy for sure.  The swim up bar was covered so it was nice to get some shade as well!!!!.  There was also another bar in the big pool area to get drinks at as well, though you really never needed to get up because the service was incredible.  The activities team who did volleyball, games, dancing lessons, etc was friendly, funny and very professional as well.

Onto the best part the food!!!! Like I said before we have been to a lot of all inclusive places and this place by far has the best food ever! The selection was out of this world. I am a vegetarian so it's usually salad and past for me at places like this.  Not here. EVERY SINGLE DAY they had an entire vegetarian selection at the buffet hot and cold!  Fried chick pea balls, tofu done several ways! I was so impressed.  What I liked about this resort as well were the food options all day long.  There was a 24 hour food café, buffet style so if you were hungry in between meals you could run in there. They changed it breakfast and lunch.  The restaurants were NO reservations which was awesome as well.  They too were very accommodating to my vegetarian requests. ALL restaurants were also open every single night which you normally don't get with most places. That was another plus in our book! I hate to plan on vacation as one of the reasons we go on vacation is to break free from the normal planning and everyday life!

5 star rating from us for this resort! Great time, great escape, the beach had a pier on it so you could walk out as well!!!!  Oh Almost forgot. There were 2 other Riu resorts one you could walk to next door that you could also go to if you wanted. They had a sports bar next door if that's more your speed.  We didn't visit but heard people talking about it!

 

Hard Rock + Riviera Maya= An Amazing Vacation

My husband and I recently arrived back home from our amazing trip to Riviera Maya. When we originally talked about planning a trip and talking about where we wanted to go we weren't sure where to even start. While we were trying to figure out where to go I told Chris we should contact Nikki for help planning our vacation and oh my goodness are we so glad we did! She made our whole vacation planning process so much easier. After answering a few questions she was able to provide us with ideas for places we could go. After talking, we decided that Mexico would be the place to go. The fun part was choosing where and when. Of course, she gave us amazing and beautiful options all that would have been great for our first trip to Mexico. We ended up choosing The Hard Rock Rivieria Maya and never looked back. Nikki was able to book our room, flights, transportation and excursions...we didn't have to do any of the thinking and worrying which as we all know is the most stressful part of going on any vacation. 

When we got to The Hard Rock we were instantly welcomed and given a margarita...which I might add was one of THE BEST ones I have EVER had! The staff was amazing and definitely made sure we didn't lift a finger and had anything and everything we wanted. We eventually made it up to our room and the view alone was amazing! We stayed in the Sky Terrace suite that they offer and it was absolutely perfect! Anything you could ever want in a room while away from home was there. Our room faced the Ocean so it was wonderful to get to wake up to that view every day. Their beaches and pools were great. We never had to worry about not having a chair to lounge and relax on while soaking up the sun. The servers made sure you always had a drink...in my case one made sure I always had three Coronas not sure why, never ordered anything, but he brought them to me anyways and continued like clockwork the entire time we were lounging by the pool every day. Their food was great at the entire resort. We did not have a bad meal at all. They definitely pay attention to detail when it comes to plating and the servers take very good care of you. 

During our stay, we had decided to do a couple excursions. The first excursion we did was a Couple's Dream Swim with the dolphins. This was hands down the best part of the vacation (aside from soaking up the sun and just relaxing) and an experience that neither one of us will ever forget! They are such beautiful creatures and so smart! We highly recommend that if you are going to do the dolphin swim (which you should) paying to do the couple's swim. You get one on one time with the dolphin instead of having to share the time with a larger group. The other excursion we did was Chichen Itza. Being able to visit the ruins was a great experience and one we can cross off of our bucket list. It's amazing to get to see all that remains from such a long time ago and all that the Mayans were able to build. That alone is impeccable and unbelievable. The only downfall was that we were gone all day and we're pretty positive that our transfer drove 50 km below the speed limit for about an hour to make sure that our tour guide could say absolutely everything he wanted to. 

Overall, our experience was definitely one for the books and we can't wait to go back. Next time we'd chose a different resort just so that we can experience another all inclusive and see what they have to offer. But any trips that we do plan in the future we will definitely be going through Nikki and seeking her help because she helped make this trip as amazing as it was. We cannot thank her enough! So THANK YOU NIKKI!!!!

REVIEW- Juneau Whale Watching

Combo Tour Whale Watching and Mendenhall Glacier

 I reserved this shore excursion for my husband and I through ShoreTrips. com, one of my preferred vendors for shore excursions. I did not want to pick a Cruise Ship provided tour for whale watching, as I wanted something smaller and more intimate. I was so happy with Dolphin Jet Boats! Everything was on time, professional, and safe. I would recommend this tour for anyone looking for a great opportunity to see Whales.

Our tour started with check in at the tram stations. The bus left promptly at our departure time and there was a short 15-minute ride to the marina. Our bus driver was Alicia and she was amazing! It was so wonderful to her about her life (as a race car driver, school bus driver, and driver for Dolphin Jet Boats). She also did a wonderful job of explaining different sites in Juneau to us, pointing out wildlife, and talking about the history of the town. 

 

At the docks in Auke Bay we met with our captain Derek and Naturalist Michelle. They took us to your boat. It fit 30 people, was enclosed with windows that opened and shut, as well as viewing decks in the front and rear of the boat. After receiving our safety instructions we headed out in the bay to look for whales. We were one of the first expeditions of the day at 3pm and our guides didn’t know exactly where the whales would be for the day. 

It was about a 10-minute ride until we started to see a few whale watching boats gathered together. Once Michelle and Derek saw there were whales in the area they slowed the boat way down and opened the front and back viewing sections. There was plenty of space for the 30 of us to spread out and everyone had room to move. I was so happy with my choice in whale watching provider, as some of the boats near us were very large with people crammed out on deck to try to get a good view. 

 On our trip we got to see some amazing Humpback Whales bubble net feeding. There were at least 8 whales feeding together. Normally humpback whales are solitary animals, but they have learned to get together to herd fish into a group. They then dive below the fish, and approach from below shooting straight up with their mouths open to get as many fish into their mouths as they can. We saw this happen about 5 different times. It was an amazing site to see. Michelle informed us that this bubble net feeding is very rare, and she herself has only seen it a few times in her 2 years of hosting whale tours.

 While on the boat we were offered bagels with salmon cream cheese, soda, coffee, water and hot chocolate. We spent a wonderful 60-90 minutes out with the whales and then headed back to shore. On our way back in we stopped by a marker buoy that had a small group of seals lounging around on it. Once at the docks we boarded our bus again and headed off to the Mendenhall Glacier

 It was a 15-minute ride to Mendenhall Glacier. On the drive there Michelle did a great job at giving some details about living in Juneau, such as how everything comes in by barge or plane. In the winters there is 1 barge a week, but in the summers there can be 2-3 barges a week.  Included in the tour was a wrist band for the visitors center at the Mendenhall Glacier.  At the glacier it was very rainy for our time, but still beautiful to see. There was a great visitors center with park rangers to answer ay questions you might have. They also did several small presentations, and there was a 20-minute movie playing in a nice theater. 

On the way back it was about a 25 minute trip to the port area. Michelle again did a wonderful job at pointing out wildlife, talking about life in Juneau, and explaining the sites along the way. The bus did 3 different drop offs for each of the different docking areas for the cruise ship.

Dolphin Jet Boats did a wonderful job with this shore excursion. I would recommend them if you are looking for a small whale watching tour, that is on time, clean, and has friendly staff!

Surprise Disney World Trip

Nikki did an awesome job planning our trip to Walt Disney World! We stayed at Port Orleans Riverside in March fo 2017, and were able to surprise our kids with our trip the morning we left.  When I started researching Disney I was overwhelmed with all the information on the web, pinterest, social media, blog sites, etc. Nikki customized our trip and made it such a personal experience. I appreciated that she took the time to answer all my email questions and met with us personally before our trip to go over the itinerary. We had a great time on our Disney trip! The trip she planned was awesome! Thank you, Nikki for all your wonderful knowledge, experience and help with the trip!!!

Spring Break in Riviera Maya

It was such a great experience working with Nikki on our first trip to Riviera Maya Mexico for Spring Break in 2017.  Our direct flight on Miami Air out of Lansing, Michigan to Cancun, Mexico was extremely convenient and 3 1/2 hours later we were in 80-degree weather for a week!  Filling out the customs forms on the plane made it easy to get through the lines and to our luggage.  

Knowing how easily we could find our van driver to the hotel (thank you, Nikki) allowed us to arrive at our hotel in less than an hour from the time we landed, went through customs, gathered our checked luggage, and were sitting in an air conditioned van.  The ride to the Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa from The Cancun Airport was about 15-20 minutes.  

Traveling as a family of five, with two teenagers and a tween, safety is of utmost importance.  I never once felt concerned about their safety, or mine.  There were two gates to go through to get the resort, nearly 1 .5-2 miles in from the main road. Once there, there was so much for the teens to do from activities nightly at the teen club, swimming, beach volleyball, pool games, Zumba, Aqua Kickboxing, non-motorized water sports, nightly shows, etc.  My 12-year old daughter was able to join her teenage brothers in the Teen Room (ages 13-17) by me making a copy of her passport and signing a permission form.  The kids (ages 12, 14, 16) were able to roam around the entire resort with ease and again, with a parental feeling of safety and security.

The rooms, grounds, pools, and beach were well maintained.  The view of the Caribbean Sea and multiple pools each day along with the 80+ degree tropical breeze was breathtaking and so welcomed after a long, Michigan winter.

One day we took an excursion, an hour and twenty-minute was drive by van, to Xel-Ha.  There, we all swam and snorkeled with dolphins, went tubing, cliff jumping, hiking, and zip lining into the water.  There were beautiful walkways with bars and a restaurant and other places to sit and rest by the beautiful blue-green water. Our kids loved this day!  It was a full 12 hour day (7 am to 7 pm) from the time we left our hotel to the time we returned, but it was well worth the extra excursion cost to go, at least with our ages of children.

My daughter and I had a beach massage one day.  If you show up to the spa early, you can sit in the steam room, sauna, and hot tub, which we did.  The most incredible massage ever was listening to the sounds of the waves crashing while the tropical breeze engulfed our cabana.  I would definitely recommend this for anyone that really wants to relax.

We loved hanging out by the various pools for all ages and moved to a different one each day.  The wait staff was great and very accommodating and we would recommend tipping $1.00 minimum for each visit they make with drinks.  Bring lots of $1s.  We had to get $1s at the front desk daily.

Overall, vacation far exceeded our expectations for this family of five!  We will be returning to Mexico in future years for our spring break adventures.

Thank you Nikki!

A WONDERful Disney Experience

Thank you, Travel With Nikki for helping to plan a truly 'magical' vacation for our family!  We sailed on the Disney Wonder for four fantastic nights and spent two days in Disney World at Pop Century and Hollywood Studios.  It was my first time cruising, so Nikki really helped put all the pieces together while planning our trip.  From the transfer from the Orlando airport to the hotel, to Port Canaveral hotel recommendations, and which stateroom to choose on the ship, Nikki helped us make the right choices for our family.  Our kids fell in love with the wide array of entertainment on the ship, and we were amazed at the quality of the nightly shows.  The food on the boat was high quality and the service provided was even better!  Also, per Nikki's recommendation, my husband and kids were able to experience a dolphin encounter in Nassau in the Bahamas.  It was a once in a lifetime moment.  We ended our trip in Disney World.  My son has a true love of anything Star Wars and Hollywood Studios was certainly a slice of heaven for him.  Nikki, again, helped plan an efficient and productive day for us in the park.  We are already looking forward to our next family trip!  Thank you for helping make such wonderful memories!

Costa Rica- Dreams Las Mareas

Costa Rica was on our bucket list and Nikki made the trip everything we wanted it to be. Travel was incredibly smooth. We were so happy we that Nikki scheduled a private transfer from the airport with Catours. Our driver offered to stop along the way to the resort to grab our first vacation cocktail and when we wanted to see some of the Costa Rican wildlife.

We were looking for mostly relaxation and sun to escape the Minnesota winter with just a bit of adventure mixed in. We got just that with our canopy tour. The guides were fun, friendly and experienced which helped calm the nerves of my husband who is afraid of heights. We both had a great time! This tour was the best part of our trip! The resort was beautiful and the restaurant options provided great variety.

We very much appreciated Nikki's suggestions. I came into planning with a few resorts in mind, and she did a great job of making other suggestions based on service levels and amenities. We're so glad she did! Dreams Las Mareas was a great resort! A tip for future guests at the resort, like most All Inclusive resorts, you need to save your chairs at the pool fairly early in the morning 

Thank you, Nikki, for your thorough research, suggestions, and execution. You truly made our bucket list trip a success!"

 

 

Royalton Riviera Cancun

Nikki, thank you so much for helping us arrange our family vacation to the Royalton Riviera Cancun in Mexico! I think this was one of our favorite family vacations ever! We couldn't have found the perfect resort, and vacation package without you.

We had an AMAZING vacation. The weather was perfect and we loved the Royalton! Our girls loved the vacation as well!  

Best Day Travel were kind and helpful during our transfer to the resort, even if it was a little difficult to find their booth and communicate that we had arranged our transfer in advance.

The Royalton Resort far exceeded our expectations. The resort was beautiful. Our room wasn't ready at 3pm so they gave us an upgrade to a room with a rooftop jacuzzi. We did have some timeshare people hound us a bit when we were waiting to check in, but we followed your advice and once we said we weren't interested they left us alone. We figured out who the time share sellers were and avoided them the rest of the trip.

Our room was beautiful, very clean and the bed was so comfortable! The girls were on a pull out sofa that was small with very thin mattress. It worked fine for them, but anyone larger or older would likely not be comfortable on the pull out. We were on the 4th floor of building 9 and we had a view of ocean. It was a bit of a walk to other parts of the resort, but we didn't mind at all.

The food was fabulous!! The restaurants were all really good and the service was top notch! We figured out after the first night that it was best for us to eat at 6:00 when restaurants opened for dinner, because otherwise there would be long waits. The website says no reservation, but there were obviously "diamond" customers who had reservations. We are at the buffet for breakfast and it was HUGE and had so much food. I gained several pounds over these few days. The girls loved the Gelato machine in the coffee shop and ice cream in the buffet. 

The pools were all fabulous! Very well maintained. The had daily entertainment and music. The swim up bars were nice and kid friendly. They had a foam party that my girls absolutely loved. The wait staff around the pool was great and constantly bringing by bottled water and taking drink orders. We learned after first day that it was helpful to mark your spot at pool/beach early in the morning. The spots went quick. 

The beach was beautiful as well. It had wait staff, nice chairs and covered beds and pergolas that were nice. They dragged the beach with a tractor every morning to get rid of the seaweed that came up overnight. There was access to non motorized water sport activities. They did require $3/person fee for some marine fee- but they gave you a bracelet and it covered you for your entire stay. 

Lastly, the nightly entertainment was fabulous! The had a family friendly kid show at 8:00 and then another show (that was more grown up, but still family friendly) at 9:00. We saw great shows that were similar to shows we've seen from Cirque. We saw fire shows, Michael Jackson impersonation shows, drum shows. All were great! 

There was a kids club that we did not use. During the day they brought around unique people/animals that they would take your picture with (Aztec Indians, Parrots, huge birds). The girls loved holding the parrot and having him sit on their head. They had photographers around the resort that would take your pictures and then you could go to their store and purchase them.  

Thank you again for helping with this family vacation, the memories will be with us forever.

Christmas Disney Cruise-Bogle Family

We have used Tavel With Nikki for all 3 of our Disney Cruises. In November of 2017 we took our first cruise on The Disney Fantasy. Nikki did such a great job at helping us select our rooms, dining time, as well as activities. She was there every step of the way during our planning process. Her suggestions were amazing.

This Disney Cruise was the most amazing vacation! Disney is the way to go with families. No casinos, good food, nice sized rooms and endless amounts of entertainment and character interactions. Plus Disney’s Castway Cay is a very magical private island! You are never to old to enjoy Disney!!

We sailed on one of the Very Merry Christmas itineraries. A very Magical way to spend the holidays for sure. The Boat is decorated with every details from a large tree, thousands of lights, even a ginger bread house… and there is even an opportunity to make your very own ginger bread house while on board.  Mickey and crew get dressed up in formal wear and pose for perfect family pictures. 

We wanted to recreate a picture take from our 1st disney cruise back in 2008. Here is our magical recreation. My how time flies and our boys have grow. 

Disney also has a fun Pirate night and does fireworks at sea. One of a kind experience that you won’t want to miss! They even have a special late night pirate dinner buffet after the fireworks. They have huge turkey legs that are a must try, and of course lots of chocolate! 

 

Our family had an amazing time aboard the Disney Fantasy, the kids can’t wait to go back again and the adults are all having a hard time getting back to reality. When you are on the boat you are spoiled with no cooking, cleaning, or driving. EVERYTHING is done for you. Your job is to relax and enjoy every moment of your vacation! This vacation took vacation to a whole new level. The kids loved the children’s clubs, the adults actually had time to spend alone and everything was taken care of for us! It really was a Magic, Wonder, Dream, Fantasy come true! 

Orlando Trip 2016

In October of 2016 my husband and I took a vacation to the Universal Orlando Resort and Walt Disney World. Nikki's detailed tips helped us out so much! Everyday we checked her lists and tips and did everything she suggested and had a great time with all of it! I don't know what we would have done without Nikki telling us the hints and tips of Disney.

Of the two locations Universal Studios was our favorite!! Harry Potter world is hands down the BEST place in the world! We truly enjoyed everything about it and it was great that our hotel was only a 5 minute walk to the park and 5 minutes to the City Walk! Everything was right there and it made it so easy to commute and enjoy our time without transportation everyday. Staying at the Hard Rock Orlando was a great option as if offered us the Express Pass for FREE! 

We would suggest that if you can, spend more time at Universal Studios! 2 days is a good length  to be able to do everything, but longer would be even better! For Disney World take advantage of those Fast Passes each day! It helps and will help guarantee a spot in whatever ride or show you'd like. 

We had a great trip! Everything was planned out and so detailed for us on Nikki's end we are so pleased to always be working with her on our trips.

The Beekman, A Thompson Hotel in NYC

I had the privilege of staying at The Beekman, a Thompson Hotel last week in New York City. This hotel is BRAND new only opening in August.

I have nothing but great things to say about this hotel. The building is amazing, and has such a rich history! (The US debut of Shakespeare's Hamlet was performed here, Edgar Allen Poe wrote here and it was the first skyscraper in NYC to have elevators!)

The decor is rich and inviting. The rooms well appointed and spacious.

What really sets this hotel apart is its staff! They are all so welcoming, personable, and approachable! Their staff is available via text for any issues, and concierge recommendations. SO HANDY when you are out in the city all day and want a restaurant recommendation! I loved that we were able to get a text on our check in date, confirming my room request I submitted, as well as when our room would be available!

If you are looking for somewhere new to stay in the city, The Beekman is it! It is located on the South End of Manhattan island, walking distance to the up and coming Seaport district, financial district and World Trade Center. As with most hotels it is less than a 5 minute walk to a Subway station that has access to a variety of lines.

We had only a small issue with getting our room refreshed during our stay. The staff was very apologetic, sent up a HAND WRITTEN note, and a few goodies.

The AC went out one evening, we called the front desk and within 10 minutes a pleasant maintenance man was at our door, and fixed the problem in under 5 minutes.

I know there are TONs of hotels in NYC, but I don't know if I could go back again, and NOT stay at the Beekman!

Dominican Honeymoon

On June 12, 2016, I went on my dream vacation (my honeymoon) in Punta Cana at Secrets Royal Beach. Nikki went out of her way to make it special, but the most amazing thing that she had planned for us was a romantic dinner on the beach. It was gorgeous and made me and husband feel so very special. It was the most romantic thing that either of us had been a part of. We were in the middle of paradise had a 7 course meal, which ended with a piece of chocolate cake surrounded by a heart that said, "You and Me" I will never forget this. It is the most special thing I have been a part of.

Thanks again Nikki for making our honeymoon so wonderful!! We could not have had a better time and would highly recommend you to anyone and everyone. Nikki is on a different level than her competition. We were incredibly impressed with how easy you made it for us and how accessible you were the entire time. Thank You!!

Orlando Vacation

Nikki helped us plan a wonderful vacation to Orlando in June of 2016. We enjoyed making memories with our Grandkids and providing an experience they'll never forget. Nikki helped make our trip magical by providing us with a a complete itinerary that was easy to follow. She was available for questions along the way and even while we were at the parks.

London-In Photos

In April of 2016 Travel With Nikki helped me plan a fun trip to London to meet a friend. I wouldn't consider a travel plan without touching base with Nikki, and as usual, I was glad I did. Nikki booked my flights and arranged for my friend and I to sit together on the return. She then came up with a beautiful boutique hotel, The Chesterfield Mayfair. The location was perfect, we were able to walk to most everything! I arrived days before my friend, and Nikki helped me pick an excursion to enjoy. She provided ideas that truly enhanced our experience! 

My trip in photos can be viewed below
