“We had such awesome times on our recent adventures in Morocco, and our cruise with Princess to Italy, Montenegro and Greece, and all because of you!
You created a package for us that made our trip effortless and with that we didn’t have to worry about one thing. Our days were filled with exciting tours, fun dining and of course beautiful views surrounded us every moment. All of the hotels were perfect for us and within walking distance to some spectacular historical places.
It was definitely a worry free vacation and we can’t thank you enough for your efforts in putting a phenomenal package together for us.
Thank you again Akeela for your hard work in making this trip one of our best trips to date. You’re our number one travel agent, and would definitely recommend you to anyone who wants to travel.”

“My wife and I wanted to get away somewhere warm for a winter vacation. I am the kind of person that likes to research various places online, trying to find the best deal possible. I never really thought of using a travel agent but Akeela came highly recommended.
Akeela’s services did not cost a penny more than booking the trip myself on a discount website, yet she offered suggestions, guidance and peace of mind. We were assured that there was someone back home available to assist us should something go wrong while we were out of country. Akeela is very professional and has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She really is an expert in the travel industry and I highly recommend Akeela when planning your next vacation.”
