"What a fun & helpful person. Fren came to our house & listened to our thoughts as to what we wanted to do & see in London. She then individualized the information and returned with resources & ideas accordingly...and that information wasn't just a bunch of travel tours. She had been to London so was very resourceful & had great ideas. Her assistance included details such as how to get around London ( taxi's, underground & buses). And not just "you will benefit having an Oyster card to use the underground" but how & where we went to buy one... so helpful. The B & B she suggested was absolutely wonderful. It was obvious she had taken into considerations our limitation & what would make us comfortable.
The previous agent we contacted sent us a few tour books. When we said we weren't interested in those tours she disappeared. I would definitely use Fren in planning our future travel.” – Karen & Scott, Milwaukie, OR
All we can say is WOW! We had the honeymoon of a lifetime! Joyce went so above and beyond the call of duty! It is truly something that we will remember and try to recreate on a future anniversary. For starters, everything was taken care of from the get go. we flew from Portland Oregon to Amsterdam and the on to Venice Italy. When we arrived in Italy, we were escorted personally by Avanti Travel (set up by Joyce to ensure we were able to get where we needed to be) to our awaiting water taxi and enjoyed a wonderful and beautiful ride across the bay right up to our hotel. We walked right in and were personally greeted by the desk clerk. I don't know how he knew our names, but none the less quite impressive. Inside our room was a chilled bottle of champagne and a welcome message from the staff with many red silk hearts laying on the bed. 2 days later we boarded the water taxi to take us to the ship to begin our cruise. It was a 3 week cruise in the Mediterranean on Cunard Cruise Line. OMG, it was so lavish and beautiful. The staff, so polite and accommodating. We never heard the word "No". To this day we still keep in contact with our room steward and our table server from dinner. Joyce suggested that we make our reservations for the late dinner. Fabulous suggestion! Many times from going a shore, we would get back to the ship 30 minutes or so before the first dinner started. The ports and the countries , Croatia, Greece, Italy, Turkey, as well as all the history we were able to take in was remarkable. In Greece, hire a taxi driver for the day! For about 100 Euros or so, it's the best tour/deal you can get. Thank you Panos! At the end of our cruise we were traveling by train across Italy and we really over packed. My wife accidentally left her purse on the train in our rush to get off (the trains are very much on time there). We lost our passports, money, credit cards, everything. Any form of ID was gone. We were met by a representative from Avanti every step of the way in our on shore excursions to take us from one place to the other. They were so accommodating in helping us get information on what we should do next and whom to speak to. Joyce suggested that we give her a copy of our passports before leaving. Great idea! It made everything a whole lot easier for us to get our passports at the embassy when we arrived in Rome. Needless to say, we had the time and adventure of a lifetime and we so look forward to doing it again and we will definitely work only with Joyce and Sun Connections Travel & Cruises. Joyce you totally hit a homerun with everything, THANK YOU!
We've been lucky enough to use Joyce's services twice, one for a cruise to Alaska and just lately for a 10 day trip to Las Vegas. She was helpful, professional and provided so many helpful suggestions and options. The travel layaway was amazing - our trip was paid for a couple months before we actually left, and since we were attending a pretty pricey festival, having everything else paid off helped immensely. Joyce found us a room we would not have otherwise found, which great amenities. She also helped us book several tours while in Las Vegas. A flight of the strip at night and ATVs in the desert were our favorite.
When an emergency arose, Joyce was right there to help us deal with it. I cannot recommend her enough. She is the only travel agent I would ever use, these days I really need to stick to people I can trust, and Joyce at Sun Connections is one of the good ones.
I just wanted to tell you that our experience in
We managed to make it to the Arizona Memorial, that was really something to see.
Thank you again for making this such a wonderful/magical experience. We can’t wait for our next excursion.
