LIsa's comments to Linda Prewitt regarding her trip:
Hello, Linda Prewitt!!!
We just got back from our Memphis trip last night!
The flights you chose were perfect, the hotel you suggested was perfect and Graceland of course was AMAZING!
Cannot believe how great the flying went for all of us non-flyers - couldn't have been any
better! Whew!!! Your recomendations were perfect!
If anyone else you know goes to Memphis, I highly recommend this hotel (Hampton Inn) as it was the perfect walking location to the river and barely a block to the famous Beale Street and a plus full free breakfast every day (very nice)!!!
And if you ever go, I think I had the best fried chicken in the world at Gus's..YUM!
To top it off Chubby Checkers was at the Peabody hotel and we got to take his picture!
Thank YOU again very much for all your
assistance and patience with us! I look forward to referring you to family/friends and look forward to using your assistance next year for another vacation!!!

"We are back from China and had a wonderful time. Highlights were climbing the Great Wall, seeing the Terracotta Soldiers, cruising through the Gorges, and the locks of the Yangtze River, taking an excursion to visit the Tribe of the Three Gorges, seeing the Pandas in Guilin, attending a fantastic light show in Yangshou, seeing the skyline of Shanghai, and riding the fastest Maglev in the World at 431 km/hr (267 mph). The hotels were great but the wifi was undependable. The guides were terrific and so knowledgeable, and the Chinese food for breakfast, lunch and dinner was a lot but good most of the time. Thank you so much for all your help. Hope you don't mindif I drop by sometime to thank you personally for setting up our memorable China Adventure.
To Rhonda Shumway:
I have just returned from a trip of a lifetime , thanks to the incredible insightful and thorough assistance of Rhonda of Terrramar Travel. As a surprise to my two sisters and mother ,Rhonda helped me plan a trip to Ireland's West Coast via Shannon airport. My expectations were great as I have been to Ireland several times but, my sisters and mother had not . Neither sister had previous need of a passport. My mother's Irish roots run deep both on her father and mother's side . I wanted to share this magical Emerald Isle with them in a whirlwind adventure of castles, kelly green rolling hills, culture, music , ancient stone walls and new spring lambs in the meadows. Our trip was seamless , not a hitch or hiccup. We stayed in luxury at places like Dromoland Castle , Ashford Castle , Adare Manor and more. We dined on Eggs Benedict, Salmon , Irish Beef and richly buttered brown bread . We walked the Cliffs of Moher , explored ruins and celtic dolmens, traced our genealogy and tapped our feet to traditional irish music in warm and welcoming pubs. It was an extraordinary trip and I can not express adequately my gratitude to Rhonda and her team of experts . S. Ellsworth
To Linda Prewitt:
Mahalo! Thanks Linda,
Our time was amazing!!!! So much to say but first off logistically everything went very smoothly. Our flight was good, we were instantly greeted off the plane and escorted to a bus we got all to ourselves. They dropped us at our hotel and were all very courteous and welcoming. The Royal Hawaiian was perfect. I think you definitely steered us right to be there. It couldn't have been more gorgeous and the location was perfect. Loved being right on the beach and our room was amazing with a center full ocean view. Also nice to be so close to all the shops and action. And thank you so much for your very kind and thoughtful welcome fruit plate and banana bread that was delivered upon our arrival. That was such a treat...we definitely felt pampered! We did go to the welcome breakfast the next day which was ok but in hindsight I think was good because we did get arrangements for a luau and snorkeling tour set up. And we did go to Dukes which as you said was crowded and was an hour and 40 minute wait, but once we were seated overlooking the beach it was definitely worth it. We took "Captain Bob's" snorkel tour over to Kewanee bay (on the windward side) that was the highlight of the trip....beautiful short bus ride through the rainforests followed by a boat ride to the volcanic sandbar and a volleyball game in the middle of the ocean in 3 feet of water! They barbeque lunch right there on the boat then snorkel on the reef with green sea turtles and fish. We all loved it…. ….Our trip home also went very smoothly, they picked us up and dropped us to the airport exactly on schedule...as well as a smooth easy flight home with no problems. It was really perfect, exactly what I was hoping for....an incredible trip that none of us will ever forget. Thank you so much for helping our family take a once in a lifetime trip...I will cherish those memories always!....
….And thank you again for our travel gift bag (what I great idea and really made me feel prepared!) as well as the gift card....I loved every minute on the beach with the lounge chairs and umbrella!!! :)
Thanks so much,
-LeeAnne & Alex, CA
Carla from California writes to Linda P:
Everything was so amazing (on our Europe trip), we loved the hotel in Paris (Citadines St. Germain des Pres) and would highly recommend that to anyone. It was the perfect location and allowed us to walk to everything we wanted to see. We took the rail once I believe and the stations is just down the street from our hotel so that too was very convenient. The rail to Montilimar was great and so was the flight on the way to Paris. Our hotel in Rome (Inn at Spanish Steps) was a great location. The colosseum was Christian's favorite attraction of the entire trip. All our tours in Paris, Rome and Sorrento were well planned, great tour guides and no complaints. Everyone kept saying what a great job you did for us! Overall the trip was a dream. Thank you so much for planning our trip, it was truly once in a Lifetime (although of course I plan on going back someday very soon). Thanks again Linda, Sincerely, Carla
Erica from California writes to Mary Ann:
Just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you. We had such a wonderful time! We hadn't taken a family vacation other than cruises before. The condo was unbelievable. Everything we could have possibly wanted was there. Having a car on Maui was a terrific bonus as well. We were able to see everything we wanted to see. The luau you booked for us was the top rated in all of Hawaii according to what I read, and it surpassed everything we had expected. We wouldn't have known which island to visit had we not had your help and, as always, you booked us another unforgettable vacation. Great memories for us and the boys. Words cannot express how thankful I am for you. Even with our flight being delayed, coming in too late to properly check in, everything was handled. I sent you an email before we took off, and when we landed I had responses from you and the condo management company. Unbelievable! Thank you soooooo much. Now, what to do next year!

Karen from California writes to Linda Prewitt:
We all had a wonderful time; everything worked like clockwork and the plane ride was great. Our accessible room (Grand Sirenis, Riviera Maya) was very nice. The floors were all tile so getting around was very easy. The handicap shuttle service was excellent (Cancun Accessible). The driver, Gustavo, was always on time and took us to many of the historical sites and destinations in the area. I want to thank you for the super job you with arranging everything. And, thank you again for making our trip such a success. Peggy and Steve from Hemet, CA write to Rhonda about two recent trips: Steve and I are delighted with the two trips you arranged for us to Tulum, Mexico and Kauai, Hawaii. Both vacations were exactly what we wanted and needed. You did a stellar job of arranging everything for us right down to the smallest detail, and in getting us the best prices available to fit our budget. You are a pleasure to work with, enthusiastic, competent, helpful, and just plain nice, but best of all you "magically" removed all the stress of travel planning for us so that we could simply enjoy ourselves without worrying about a thing. Both experiences exceeded our expectations. We have already recommended you to others who are contemplating travel, and you can count on our business when we are able to plan another get away. Thank you for everything you did to make our two latest vacations the best of our twenty two years together.

Rhonda, thank you! I can't tell you how much we appreciatae your going the extra mile for us!! You have made lifelong customers!!! Thank you again . . . and again . . .

I just want to thank you for arranging such a wonderful vacation for us. We hiked in the jungle, rapelled 60 feet suspended in mid-air into the clearest water inside a Cenote, rode a tube down a river under thick mangrove's, walked Mayan ruins, snorkeled, rode zip lines over water filled with crocodiles, ate a meal in a true Mayan village (Pac chen), and relaxed on the beach drinking whatever we wanted. The food was outstanding and the entertainment was great. The trip through customs on both ends and the search by TSA were easy. Thanks so much.
Bruce P of Tallahassee Writes:
The TerraMar agent asked appropriate clarifying questions and quickly set to work coming up with advice where she thought it was best we could stay in our budget. I have since talked to her on the phone and she appears very knowledgeable concerning the Hawaiian Islands. She truly seems to be an advocate for the traveler, trying to provide just what the traveler is looking for and within the specified budget amounts. I could not be happier with the services she has provided to this point and heartily recommend her to anyone who is seeking travel.
Lisa of California Writes:
Dear Linda, TerraMar Travel:
You went way beyond the call of duty. I was thrilled that you were able to find all the arrangements for us. Then, you bring over the books and wine and it felt like Christmas. Now as I look through the bag and found the generous gift certificate, I am overwhelmed! You are amazing. I think I need a million of your business cards. You are the best!
Elizabeth of Washington Writes in Part:
We had a delightful trip, thanks to your great planning and coordination. The itinerary and maps provided were most helpful. Our transition from air to train was flawless, with excellent instructions. The location, breakfast and cleanliness or each hotel all were great which allowed us to walk most every place we wanted to go. It was a wonderful trip and we look forward to using your services in the future.
David from Southern California Writes:
The vacation seems like it was ages ago, now that school has started again. We had a great time and really enjoyed the balcony room, and location mid ship, close to elevators. I like the dress up, or not, because I’m not much for dressing up, especially on vacation. The ship was great. Pretty much the same layout as the other cruise I took on Carnival. We took 4 shore excursions, so didn’t have much free time on shore; Misty Fjord tour in Ketchikan, Mendenhall Glacier and salmon bake in Juneau, and rail trip. We also did zip lining in Skagway. I especially enjoyed the zip line. It was a small group just a van load of people, so we connected a bit with the parents and teens on this adventure. Rebecca had done the zip line at camp before, but I hadn’t. We did about 7-8 zip lines, more than I expected, it was cool. Entertainment was great, a bit geared toward the older set. Some of it was Nat King Cole, Rat Pack, ballroom, show tunes. I think they did a good job appealing to a wide age group, with comedy, magician, dance shows, Latin Music, quite a variety. I love working with you, and am handing out your business cards whenever anyone says they’re thinking about taking a trip. You really go above and beyond. You’re awesome, and I’m so glad I called you. Thank you soooooooooo much.
Starr from Las Vegas Writes About Two Recent Experiences:
Everything has gone so well that Pat and I can hardly believe it. Our travel agent, Jani, must be a genius as everything she organized and planned for us has made our dream trip to Egypt wonderful beyond words.
Starr also said:
Jani, I never took your skill and attention to detail for granted, but now I can more fully appreciate your talents (after traveling with another travel agent . . . your halo is sparkling, at least in our minds.

Brad & Patti write to Jani Doctor, TerraMar Agent:
Jani, Wow, what a trip. So many meaningful, spiritual, historical and shared family experiences; the tour was great. We had an excellent tour guide and yes we are still I jet zone lag. We will call you next week and share with you more impressions. All the travel arrangements worded great. Thanks for all your help. It was truly a memorable trip.

Thanks again for helping us with a great vacation. I wish I could leave again tomorrow. Hopefully it isn’t too long before we can start bugging you again.
Mark and Pat of Hemet, CA write to Rhonda:
We love the Hyatt (Hyatt Regency, Waikiki) and will book there in the future. Sorry to have not mentioned it, but the pineapple, bananas and apples from you and Classic Vacations were perfect timing, as fruit is always good. This vacation was relaxing, and, since we had seen so much of Oahu, we took time to just take it all in and thank God for our blessed life. We are blessed to have you in our lives, Rhonda, and God Bless you.
E and M from Washington write to Jani:
Jani was very flexible in scheduling our off boat excursions and our before and after cruise time. Excursions booked accurately reflected what we did and saw. The ship was very nice, the food was plentiful and well prepared and the service was excellent. It was a great first cruise. We especially liked our hotel accommodations in Montreal.
D & B of Hemet Write to Rhonda:
We just wanted to say thank you for arranging a wonderfu vacation for our anniversary trip to Hawaii. Everything was smooth and stress free! The islands are so beautiful. We hope to visit again! Mahalo!!
D & N from St. George, UT write to Rhonda Shumway:
Rhonda. We have just returned from our Alaska cruise. It was fantastic. Don't know how it could have been better ...well, maybe just a few degrees warmer but it was very pleasant in a light jacket. We escaped the rain for the most part, a light drizzle or two that didn't cause any problems at all. Princess delivered without a flaw. Our rooms were the best we have ever had. They opened up our deck doors so our families were all together as one.
What a great travel agent you are. Many thanks.
Sharlie writes to Maureen:
Thank you so much for making our travels smooth overall. We had such a great time. I love Couples Resort so much! Our wedding was amazing!!! Also thank you so much for the flower decor, champagne, and candles what a nice surprise for our second niht of marriage. That was very sweet and thoughtful. Thank you so much!
B.J. from St. George, UT writing to Rhonda Shumway
This cruise ranks #2 in my all time favorites! (still loved the Mediterranean best). What spectacular scenery around the clock! The weather was so close to perfect its almost scary. They said the cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage the week before was 7 days of rain! Whew! What a fantastic vacation....thank you so much for all your help.
Sue from California writes to Linda P:
We had a wonderful trip!! All the arrangements were spot-on; flights, shuttles, all on time; paperwork all organized, etc. Think the kids really enjoyed it... Citadines St. Germain des Pres (Paris) was lovely; It was roomy, clean, great location, ADORED the coffee machine down in the lobby, as well as the refillable water station. Staff very nice. We all loved the Bateau Mouche that we took at night, and the last day Bella enjoyed the Jardin des Tuileries. You were so wise to book our train the day before our flight cos sure enough, TGV cancelled trains out of Montelimar so Rose and Michel had to drive us an hour up to Valence where we PUSHED ourselves onto the busy train and found seats in First Class even tho our tkts (if they had been checked) wouldn't have been acceptable for First Class since it wasn't our initial reservation! We were very lucky!! Hope that your other clients were not affected by the strike. Again, thanks for that initiative... It was a great trip. We are now poor the rest of the year but it was worth it! And i know that C and C loved the rest of theirs also. That hotel in Rome (Inn at the Spanish Steps) was the bomb! They actually videotaped it! Gorgeous! Merci encore; you did a terrific job. Well done! I wish you a good rest of the year and hope to plan another trip with you within the next few years! You are very kind and hard-working.
