Hi Amy,

Now that we are finally settled and beating jet lag (sort of), we want to thank you for the fabulous time we both had!!
The weather was beautiful (sans one rainy day in Pompeii - but we made it work with umbrellas) and the hotels were perfect! You chose great locations for us and we are so grateful for that!
It was the perfect place for Kenny and I with the right amount of breathtaking views and adventure - we're still on Cloud Nine!
Thanks so much Amy !!

~ Liz and Kenny Haferkorn (Italy Honeymoon)

"Amy was absolutely amazing to work with. After getting engaged we knew we wanted a destination wedding, but beyond that were completely lost. Amy talked us through different options for destinations and took the time to answer any questions we had. She made us feel like we were her only clients and she was never too busy to get back to us quickly. The destination and resort we ended up going to (Now Larimar in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic) was perfect and exactly what we had in mind! She was extremely helpful to us and our guests with travel arrangements and in getting us connected with the wedding coordinator at the resort. The whole process was stress free. The staff at the resort were great and even danced with us at the reception. It was as though they were lifelong friends of ours!
We will definitely use Amy for future trips and would recommend her to anyone, especially when planning a destination wedding."

~ Taylor & Tessa Potratz

"Amy did an OUTSTANDING job of helping us plan our special trip! (Rhine River Cruise and side trip to the Swiss Alps.) It was a dream vacation for us."

~ Lee and Barb LeMoine"

"Our trip to Italy was AMAZING!! Thanks to Amy from A Room With A View for helping set up such a wonderful, stress-free vacation."

~ Brianne Givens

"After spending days searching online and receiving lackluster service from other travel agencies, we were no closer to deciding on an ideal travel destination. Fortunately, a friend referred us to Amy at A Room with a View. Unlike other travel agents, she really took the time to understand what we were looking for by asking us questions we hadn't even considered ourselves. Less than a day after our first conversation, she provided us with a short list of amazing destination at some of the best prices we had seen. Based on her advice, we chose an adults only all-inclusive resort in Jamaica, and it could not have been more perfect! Amy really took all of the stress out of planning by providing us with the best deals, great travel tips, and answers to all of our last-minute questions. I never had to worry that we had forgotten some minor detail or missed out on a better opportunity. We will definitely be using A Room with a View for all our future vacations!"
Thanks again!

~ Andrew Eddmenson

P.S. - Thank you for the bottle of wine!

"This is our first time doing an all inclusive and the first time for leaving the country. It was everything we dreamed and more. Just excellent service by A Room With A View and our destination was amazing! Awesome staff at Ocean Blue & Sand. Especially the entertainment staff. They made every day so much fun and great with my kids!"

~ Amy Lynch

 

"Trip was well organized for a very large group (Ocean Blue & Sand in Punta Cana.) Communication was fantastic. Amy Johnson of A Room With A View Travel went over & above to accommodate us. Would totally recommend Amy for family reunion, other group trips, or just for couples."

~ Sandy Meyer

Amy Johnson was fantastic to work with while planning our destination wedding. We had 20 guests travel with us to Mexico and Amy was very helpful to accommodate everyone's travel plans as not all of them were from our city. She worked with us to pin-point the perfect all-inclusive resort which turned out to be even better than we expected. She also helped us plan some excursions before we even left for the trip. And while on the trip Amy was on it when I emailed her about a problem that we had with the hotel giving us the wrong room. She is very resourceful and really listens to what you want and she finds it! I will book all of my vacations through A Room With A View. You should too!

~Mike & Amie Meleski

 

Amy, Thank you for putting together a great trip for our family! Everything you helped with(flights, finding a great hotel during the free dining promotion, booking character meal, etc.) really helped to make planning stress free and resulted in a wonderful package. It was truly a magical vacation!

~ Dan & Kim Fax and family
Our trip far exceeded our expectations!! The kids LOVED everything about the trip from the unlimited ice cream to the towel animal left in our room before bed! They were able to find so many activities to do if they wanted on the ship- or just hang out by the pool. The entertainment was fabulous-- we only wish we hadn't missed the first two shows!!! We loved all of our destination stops especially stingray city in grand cayman. We are so glad we chose a cruise for our vacation- and will definitely go in another!! Thank you Amy at A Room with a View for making all of our arrangements!!

~Steve and Sally Tautges
A Room With A View took care of every detail to make our 25th Anniversary trip to Hawaii perfect! Amy even thought of some extra special surprises that brought tears to my eyes!

Amy,

Thank you for helping us plan our amazing vacation!!!  Thank you for all your advice, research and booking of our flights, hotels, transportation & excursions.  You did a great job!!

We’ve always dreamed of a trip to Hawaii to celebrate our 20thAnniversary and you helped make it an experience our family  will never forget!!

The Vow Renewal on the private beach in Maui was everything I dreamed it would be. It was on a  beautiful, private beach, the minister was awesome and we loved the pictures he took.

Thank you for helping make that dream come true!!

~Tami and Steve Schraufnagel

 

Amy was so helpful! Incredibly responsive to ALL my questions! Never used a travel agent before, so did not know what to expect, but Amy was so great! She came highly recommended and I would highly recommend Amy as well!!

~Kathryn Klopfer
Amy did a wonderful job helping us choose a resort, finding the best $$ deal and also helping us secure a great rate for the park and fly in Chicago. Amy answered all of our questions and gave us clear and concise information on what to expect in Mexico. This made our trip an absolute breeze. I will definitely book again with Amy and A Room with a View.

~Debbie Devine
I really appreciate all of the information I received from Amy in preparation for the trip even though it was a "Mystery Destination". The resort was perfect and we had a wonderful time.

~Lynn Eckstein (Mexico vacation)

Another wonderful Disney memory with the help of Amy Johnson/A Room With A View Travel Agency. Thank you for your recommendation of staying in the family suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Looking forward to planning a return to Disney trip with the assistance of Amy!

Hi Amy!

 

We had a wonderful time on our honeymoon, everything was absolutely perfect. You made traveling so easy for us! I just filled out the survey. Thank you so much again for your help and efforts in making our honeymoon something to remember!

Amy Johnson helped to make my wedding the best day of my life. I could not have done it without her. She handled all of my guests' hotel, flight, and transportation accommodations. This relieved a ton of my wedding plan stress. She was prompt in returning my phone calls and e-mails and even made a trip out to my parent's house to drop off the final details for our trip! Amy definitely went above and beyond, and I highly recommend using her for your next trip.

I am very detail-oriented and was pretty picky about how I wanted our wedding. Amy was very helpful, especially considering the fact that we had never been to Riviera Maya, Mexico. She is very knowledgeable and has great professional advice! When I first contacted her we didn't even know where we wanted our destination wedding, and she was very patient and understanding in helping us pick a destination and hotel. I can't thank her enough, and we plan to work with her to plan future trips. Thank you Amy Johnson and A Room With a View-Cruise & Travel!

~Becky Schiller Grenier and Dustin Grenier

 

Amy-

Our trip was AMAZING!!! Everything turned out perfect and just the way we wanted! I cant think of a single thing to complain about! I will definitely continue to refer people to you, and call you with any travel plans for our future!!! JThank you again for all your hard work in getting this to turn out perfect! We really appreciate it!!!

~ Casey Nolan & Harley Truse

 

Amy -

Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into planning our Jamaican wedding trip. Everyone had an amazing time and we couldn't have done it without you! You put our minds at ease and freed up our time to plan other things. We truly appreciate all the work you did and will be contacting you for our next trip. Keep in touch!

~ Mark and Amy Unteutsch

 

A Room With A View did a fantastic job of taking the worry out of our trip. It was great when we arrived and knew that Amy had taken care of setting up a group dinner for 42 of us. It couldn't have been any better!!

~ Tammy Waterhouse

 

Amy with A Room With A View was truly a pleasure to work with. I called Amy (after a recommendation from a friend) shortly after our engagement in July telling her that I wanted a destination wedding in January, but had no idea where I wanted to go. Amy got back to me that day with information on many resorts and destinations. Decisions were made and soon Amy had travel plans and paperwork ready for guests. Amy worked very hard within the next couple weeks to get the 60 some guest's paperwork figured out before deadlines, and was always keeping me updated with guest information. Working with Amy was great, she took care of every detail (as well as the ones she didn't have to) and answered every question my guest and I had with enthusiasm. My guests and I have nothing but the best of things to say about her. The trip went great and was beautiful. My utmost of thanks goes to Amy, without her I never could have had my wedding on such short notice and had all my guests come along. I recommend Amy to anyone with travel opportunities, words are not enough to show how grateful I am for all of her help. Thanks again Amy for everything!
~ Jamie Schellinger

 

Amy,

We had an AMAZING trip! The itinerary was just right for us. One of my main concerns before the trip was that we wouldn't have any free time to explore the area on our own. That wasn't the case. When you and I initially started looking into this I asked for "postcard views" and we certainly got them! The pace of the trip was just right. I think we saw a lot of things in a pretty small timeframe but we never got really exhausted, until we got home and it all caught up with us. I attached a couple of pictures of us (and the beautiful landscape). We couldn't have dreamed up a better way to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary! If we hear of anyone asking about a trip, we will certainly be sending them your way!

Thanks again!
Chris Reuss

 

Hi Amy,

Thanks for asking, everything was AWESOME!!! The wedding at Palace completely exceeded my expectations - everything was beautiful. The wedding planner and resort staff were excellent. Thank you for all of your help with our trip, I was a relatively stress-free bride and that had a lot to do with you! I am looking forward to future travels!

Thanks again Amy!

~Marilka and David

 

 

Where do I even start? How about the amazing and unforgettable destination you helped us plan to Puerto Vallarta! I have to tell you that in all the time that has passed since the trip, we STILL have guests coming up to us at holidays and family functions to tell us about how much fun they had! For me, it was a trip of a lifetime.. I got to bring home a husband and a ton of beautiful memories that will last forever. Thank you for all of your hard work coordinating our guests travel, you definitely surpassed our expectations and went above and beyond with recommendations.All of this is the reason that I have referred you to so many of my friends and family.

    Dear Amy , Thanks for recommending such a wonderful resort for us, the Riu Palace Mexico. Everything was perfect!! We were looking at several resorts for the five of us. We wanted something that our young adult children would love as much as we did. You helped us with all of your detailed information. It was a dream vacation! Cannot wait to plan the next one.

    Hi Amy,

    Just wanted to send a quick note saying everything was great! It was the best vacation I ever had, of course Harley & Casey's wedding was the best part.
    It was the first time I was in Mexico and I could not believe how beautiful it was and the wedding was the best wedding ever!!
    The accommodations were excellent and the staff was very friendly and a lot of fun.
    I did not want to leave and it just went so fast.

    Thank you so much for making our vacation and the wedding a success!!
    I would recommend you to my friends and we will be contacting you when we plan our next vacation!

    Hi Amy,

    Just wanted to send a big thank you for planning a perfect trip for our 25 year wedding anniversary to El Dorado Royale! It was amazing and just what the doctor ordered. We've used other travel agents in the past but never again. The big difference with you is that you actually took the time to get to know us. You listened. We truly felt that our satisfaction and enjoyment was your top priority and our experience certainly was proof of that.

    For your other readers,here are some of the reasons I recommend Amy;
    She asks the right questions and gets to know you resulting in personalized service and a vacation tailored to your interests.
    She knows the resorts and excursions having experienced all of them herself. She would never recommend one that didn't meet her standards.
    She is always looking for ways to save you money, be it flights, excursions or room upgrades. (By the way Amy, thanks for the upgrade to the Casitas, the outdoor shower was prety unique.)
    And finally, the time and stress she saved us was worth hunderds of dollars.

    Thanks again Amy,good job! We'll be contacting you soon to book another vacation!
    ~Bob and Karen~

    Amy booked our 7 day Carribean cruise for us. She far exceeded our expectations. Her recomenations for island excursions were right on. All her tips were very helpful, from taking paper to write notes to the steward to best beaches . We can’t wait to book our next vacation with Amy!

  • Dani Foscato

    11/23/2010

    All we have to say was that is was worth every penny. It was wonderful! From the drawings in the sand just for us, to the excellent meals, the service which was never overbearing, but always there when you needed it, etc. They were actually like mind readers, those housemen! They even did our laundry so we would not have to do a lot of it when we came home. Anything you wanted, you could just consider it done. We both even held a shark! Our snorkel guide was really cool, and very knowlegeable. I really can't say enough about that place.

    Thank you for everything Amy! You are the best. It was a pleasure working with you, and I will contact you for our next trip. Best wishes and hopefully talk to you sooner than later! :)

    Hi Amy-

    We had an amazing honeymoon thanks to you and all your help. El Dorado Royale was the perfect choice and if we were to go back to Mexico, it's where we would stay again.

    The best part was all the time and stress you saved me. It was very frustrating and confusing trying to compare costs, amenities, etc. on resorts in Mexico and you knew exactly what would be a good fit for us. Everything about the resort made us feel like we were royalty. The food was incredible, the staff was genuinely interested in making sure everything was excellent, the pool was close to our room and always the perfect temperature- we had the time of our lives. everything went off without a hitch. We didn't have any problems with our flights, hotel, customs or our shuttle- everything you booked for us worked out perfectly. It was so nice to sit back and relax and know that everything had been taken care of by you.

    Thanks again for all your help and I will be recommending you and using you for future trips!

    Kamy and Jeremy Adams

    The full-service that Amy provided us for our cruise and excursions allowed us to go on a worry free vacation. All we had to was show up and enjoy the trip. She listened to what we wanted to experience on our vacation and we had a fantastic time - our best vacation ever - everything was perfect. The follow-through, ideas, travel tips, etc. are why we will certainly book our vacations with A Room With a View. I have recommended ARWAV to my friends and they have all been extremely pleased.

    We have used A Room With a View travel agency on several occasions and have been delighted with the excellent service and follow-up. No detail is left out and the recommendations by Amy are great ! Recently she booked a cruise for us with excursions in every port ~ the trip was great, everything went smoothly and our family had a great time !

Hi Amy,

Just wanted to let you know we had a great time on this cruise. The plane rides were smooth for the most part, the seas were quite calm and the weather was just beautiful. What more can a person ask for on a vacation?

Thank You for recommending Peat Taylor for us. He was a great tour guide. We went to Dunn River Falls and Ed ,Tom & I did the falls. It was a great experience.

I enclosed a picture of our group from one of the formal nights onboard. From left to right they are Joanie & Tom, Pat & myself, Marlene & Ed, Maxine & Don.

Thanks for all your help in setting up this vacation.

Hi, Amy,

Very soon I’m going to send some pics of our trip, and then get serious about our next cruise. We had a fabulous cruise, I love the balcony, and I’m going to have to send another e-mail to you just describing our amazing dinner that you gave us. We all agreed we have never had a dinner experience like that before.

I’ll send pics soon… thank you again, Amy, you are a great travel agent…Joanie

Dear Amy,

Yes, My daughter and I had a fantastic time. The room was great (mid ship was nice) and we loved everything about the Spirit. We ate dinner with 2 other 16 year olds and their grandmothers so Liz got to meet other teens her age. We enjoyed the entertainment and the food was luscious! The weather cooperated almost the whole week. We did a float plane trip in Juneau and the White Pass train ride in Skagway. We took loads of pics and we certainly appreciated the coupon for the Carnival picture. That was so very kind of you. Again, Amy, THANKS for helping make our Alaskan trip a memorable vacation!!!!!! Sincerely, Brenda Neuman

Hi Amy- We had a great time! We couldn’t believe all that there is to do on the ship. We went to many shows and ate alot of food!! The girls enjoyed the outdoor movie screen by the pool. We received your soda/beer packages, thank you very much! Thanks again for all your help, I can’t believe that it’s come and gone. We will definitely contact you when planning another trip, Thanks again!  Gail

Hi Amy,

Thanks so much for the gifts and for printing our travel docs. I am so ready for this vacation - it couldn't come at a better time. 

Anyhow, I haven't had a second to look through anything yet - but I'll hopefully get to it this weekend or sometime next week. If anything comes up I will certainly contact you. 

Additionally - you can absolutely count on us booking all of our future vacations through you in the future. This experience has been seamless. Thank you so much for all that you have done and for taking such good care of us. We both felt like you put as much time and energy into this trip for us as you might have for someone in your own family. We will be passing along your information to anyone that we know who is in need of help with their travel planning. 

With much appreciation,

Cheryl

Hi Amy!

I am so happy that you were surprised by the Disney cookie bouquet.  It was the least we could do to show our appreciation to our one and only travel agent! 

I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work, patience and EXCELLENT customer service as you assisted us in our trip planning and reservations.  I let everyone know about "our travel agent" as I tell them about our recent trip to Disney World.  If you have some business cards, please send some to me.  I will keep them in my purse and hand out.  I will also direct any who are interested to your website.

Until the next trip ~ take care, Amy!

Deb Ellestad

 Hi Amy,
 
I finally have a moment to catch up with you.  The cruise was lots of fun!  The only problem was we did not come home very rested.  We had too many late nights.  All of our shore excursions were perfect.  Our drivers were all wonderful.  Thanks for making our trip so fun and stress free.
 
Cathy
 
P.S.  Nice touch on the bottle of wine at dinner!  Thank You.
