I can't say enough great things about Great Expectations Travels. Sherrie helped us carefully plan our honeymoon trip to Thailand, ensuring the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. She was also available to make a few schedule changes over the busy holiday period when we were traveling.

Sherrie planned our recent trip to Costa Rica and we had such an amazing time! Sherrie really did a great job tailoring the whole itinerary to fit the wants and needs of our family. We had a great time zip lining, horseback riding and ATV riding with our two sons!! All of the arrangements Sherrie made were first class-- from the hotels in Arenal and Manuel Antonio to all of the tours and excursions-- we couldn't have been happier. She attends to every detail and is always accessible, no matter what time of day or night!! This was the first time in a long time that we had utilized the services of a travel agent. We are so glad we chose GET and would not hesitate to use them again for future trips. Pura Vida!!!

Sherrie is awesome! This was my first time traveling to Europe and was pretty nervous. Sherrie was great and was always accessible to answer our questions. My partner and I felt adequately prepared and our accommodations were breathtaking! We let her know what we were planning to do while in London and she made sure that the location of our London hotel was central to everything that we wanted to do. We added extra activities to our trip and she helped us with those accommodations as well. We are now travel junkies and will definitely use her services again! Thanks so much Sherrie and G.E.T!

Great Expectations Travels should have a catch phrase and it should be "The Individualized Trip of Your Dreams" with a sub-title: "Affordable Getaways with a Concierge's Touch." Where do I start?! When I called her to ask about our honeymoon, Sherrie asked me to write her an email with some of the things we hoped to do and to describe the style of the trip we wanted. A few days later, I was sent an itinerary that was literally exactly what we wanted, though never something we could have put together ourselves. Flash forward to the trip itself: Sherrie's itinerary and info packet allowed us to glide through our trip with absolutely no issues whatsoever: 3 different hotels, 3 different expeditions, and all we had to do was show up and smile and be led to our destination. It could not have been easier. Before, during, and after the trip, Sherrie herself was genial, extremely available, and integritous - when one expedition was switched out for another, she refunded us some of our money accordingly without us having to bring it up. Perhaps you are the kind of person who doesn't normally use a travel agent. If so, this company is for you, because as you'll see, the payoff is truly priceless. Totally worth it!

My wife was planning the wedding, and it was my job to plan the honeymoon. I had a lot of pressure to make sure this went right, and with the help of Great Expectations Travels our 4-week getaway to DUBAI, AUSTRALIA and THAILAND went off without one hitch. After spending weeks and weeks on travel sites to get prices and reading a wide variety of blogs and stuff with tips from other traveler, I really became overwhelmed with what was out there. My wife didn’t need the headache of me asking questions, and she left the honeymoon up to me. I was stressed out about where to go and what to do. So I got on YELP, did some research and found Great Expectations Travels. I met with Sherrie and she immediately asked me questions that I hadn’t even thought of. She knew answers to each question I had. I set up an appointment and met her at her office, and was really impressed by her organizational skills. I decided I wanted to go across the world, and gave her a budget. I wanted luxury, but I didn’t want to be ripped off. A few days later -- I was really surprised because I thought she would take a few weeks on this -- Sherrie came back with a luxury package. Flights, private transportation, amazing hotels for under the budget I gave her. I don’t know how she did it. I really thought it was too good to be true. When I was initially looking at packages on my own, I never found these kind of deals. But I quickly knew the opportunity would only be there for a few days, and I booked immediately. My wife didn’t believe that I had our trip planned out so far in advance that she was getting nervous, thinking that I was waiting till last minute, or didn’t put much thought into it. And boy, was she wrong. Anyways, the trip was amazing. Every single detail went perfectly and smoothly. Sherrie checked in with us almost every other day, to make sure that things were going well. It was really nice to know if anything was going to happen that Sherrie was a quick email away. When we arrived back home after a month away, Sherrie emailed us to make sure we arrived okay -- and even asked us for details on our vacation. We were really happy with Sherrie and Great Expectations Travels and I can’t wait to start using them when my wife and I expand our family and go on family trips!!!
