Aimee and the Avant-Garde Travel team are amazing! From the very first interaction to the day of departure they were on-point, organized, and an extension of our trip. We wanted a trusted partner to brainstorm honeymoon ideas based off of our needs and they provided multiple options for us to review. Our honeymoon happened to take place during hurricane season and they provided daily reports and communication not only with the resort but keeping us up to speed as well. There were many personal touch-points prior to departure to made sure we had what we needed, and any last-minute requests were addressed. The trip itself exceeded our expectations and we have already reached out to the Avant-Garde Travel team with two more trips. I foresee many years of partnership ahead and wonderful travels memories to come. Thank you for everything!!!
I used Minerva for my honeymoon to Thailand. Let me just say that it is extremely comforting when the travel agent checks in with the hotel and with your tour guide to make sure our travel is going smoothly. The tour guides thought very highly of Minerva. We were fully immersed in the culture of Thailand, as well as treated like royalty thanks to Minerva! In my humble opinion, a great trip consists of great food, a hotel that makes you feel at home, and a comprehensive tour that indulges you in the culture. Minerva knocked it out of the park. The hotels were over the top amazing, with great restaurants and great views. The food was fresh and delicious everywhere we went. Both Thai and Fusion! Lastly, the tour was hand selected to meet our needs - culture combined with relaxation. The tour exceeded our expectations, best decision ever. If you are looking for someone who will tailor to your needs, look no more. Thank you Minerva you knocked it out of the park!
My honeymoon planning experience could not have been better. We felt like royalty everywhere we went, thanks to Minerva and her team. The girls at Avant-Garde really give you the insight scope of where and what to do. Excellent experience! Professional and friendly. Highly recommended!
Aimee was UHMAZING! She made the entire process completely painless. We decided to get married on a cruise ship at sea which has a lot of moving pieces. She took care of everything from the flight out to hotels and transportation to the ship. Additionally she made me a cute flyer to send to my friends and family to keep them posted on deposits and trip information. Because I had to overlook something, she even resent us luggage tags because we forgot to print ours before we got to the ship! She even helped us plan hotels for our honeymoon! 10/10 would do it again. I miss talking to her. I am definitely using her for any future traveling we do. Go call Avant-Garde Travel and ask for Aimee. You won’t regret it.
Maya Abdo is truly a caring professional. Not only did she treat my family vacation with tremendous care but when we arrived at our destination, we were treated like royalty. Her reputation obviously preceded her and as her clients we truly benefited from her professionalism. Maya was also available whenever I needed her help or just when I needed a little reassurance day or night. I cannot say enough good things about Maya except that I consider her not just my travel agent, but a trusted friend. I will continue to use her for my family’s travel needs for a very long time!
I cannot thank and give praise to Aimee enough for the incredible work she did in setting up a memorable honeymoon for me and my husband. As two people who have done very little international travel, Aimee was amazing at helping us curate our entire vacation. She took the time to get to know my husband and myself, learn what interested us, understood our vibe and the kind of trip we wanted to experience and then hit it out of the park with our itinerary. Beyond the execution, Aimee was available at the drop of a hat when we had questions, needed to talk through ideas, share her POV, etc. She became a friend, helping to plan one of the most exiting vacations ever vs. a travel advisor, and it was clear that making the most out of our trip was her priority. I cannot wait to work with Aimee to plan future vacations and recommend her and her services to all that will listen.
I highly recommend going through Aimee Leon! My husband and I went on a 16 day European vacation, and she made the whole trip seamless! She planned everything from the flights and hotels to the tours and daily activities, while we were in Europe. Also, she made a little booklet before our trip that included our entire trip itinerary, to ensure everything went smoothly. On top of that, she included several books that went over the culture and the activities of each destination that we would be visiting. We will definitely be using Aimee, again, for our next vacation!
Great Service & Planning!Excellent advisor, attentive and helpful... we had the idea and the desire and she helped us to define and decide for the best way to make the most of the time adhering to the budget. Our holidays to India and Thailand were a dream come true! Thanks Minerva
Aimee is AMAZING! She has booked numerous vacations for us over the years. I recently called her with a question about our cruise, and she answered while overseas! She was at a conference and took time out to answer my call! She has been so generous by making sure our vacations are special with thoughtful gifts, champagne, room decorations, signs, sweet treats, robe and slippers, massages etc. I will ONLY book all my upcoming vacations with her!
Marilyn Bohle has been our cruise guru, ensuring we have exceptional travel experiences for over 8 years! She has been providing the same exceptional service to my wife’s parents for over 20 years. If you are looking for expertise and in depth knowledge with sincere care for clients, I can’t recommend Marilyn highly enough.
Minerva was amazing!! We had a lot of people traveling together with multiple requests and she did a great job on taking care of all our needs. Very patient and professional. Very well prepared and very knowledgeable. I will work with Minerva again for sure!!
May did a awesome job taking care of our 10 year anniversary to the Bahamas. Everything was planned out to every detail. I can’t wait till we can have May plan our next trip. Already recommended her to a few different people. Thanks May!
