You are awesome! I know you are busy and yet I feel that you are giving us undivided attention! All I can say is thank you and you are more gutsy than me! I appreciate this all especially since I sprung this on u at the last minute. If I was next to you I would be hugging you!

Hi Cheri,

I wanted to extend to you a big THANK YOU for organizing my trip for me. I returned home on Sunday and had a great time! Contiki worked out very well and it was a great, affordable and easy way to travel. Flights, although of course long, went very well too. I know I was not the easiest customer to help but I really want to thank you for your help in creating an amazing three week break!

Sincerely,
Becca (Trip to New Zealand and Thailand planned 1 week prior to departure)

Our trip…
Was absolutely amazing- every single second was perfect!!! We are beyond exhausted!!! I can’t thank you enough for all you did to make our trip special. The hotel in Rome was great… Our driver to and from Naples was fantastic and Hotel Santa Caterina, as you well know, was amazing. The staff was so helpful and we felt so pampered. We went to Capri one day, hiked one half day and then rented a boat second half of day and we hung out by the pool one day. We went into the town of Amalfi each night and walked around and had dinner. We loved the town of Amalfi. We always came back and enjoyed drinks at the hotel after dinner- it was so beautiful at night with the piano music and candlelight. The trip just kept getting better- I cannot say enough about Castello del Nero- ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Our room was incredible and the staff was beyond accommodating. The view was surreal. Great experience!! The second day, we took the car with the Embry’s and went to Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano. Of course we loved them all, but fell in love with Pienza. The next day, we took the shuttle and spent the day in Florence. The last day, I did my cooking class and it was WONDERFUL!! One of the most fun things I have ever done!! That afternoon, we went to Siena and had dinner there. Loved every second of every day. Hope you had a wonderful trip as well!! Just wanted you to know how happy we were with the trip you planned for us!! Right on the mark!!

Hi Cheri,

Miriam and I returned yesterday from the trip, as you know.
Just wanted to thank you and let you know that everything went great! Trip was perfect!
We fell in love with Italy. In fact, Miriam is now thinking about eventually returning to study there or live there for a bit.
I am more than happy to give you specific feedback on aspects of the trip/hotels/travel etc., if you would like. Some aspects were particularly phenomenal and would love to share with you, for future reference. Miriam and I would also love to take you out for a glass (aka bottle) of wine, if you are so inclined.
In any case, thanks again for everything! Can’t wait to work with you again!!

Cheri,

We had a great vacay. Paradisus was awesome! The room upgrade and restaurants reservations booked ahead of time were both very helpful. Thanks again for your help and will definitely keep your info on file in case any trips arise in the future.

Hi Cheri. I just wanted to thank you SO much for everything. The trip was phenomenal. All the hotels were perfect. The itinerary was done impeccably, the tour guides were amazing, and Croatia is just something else. If you haven’t been you really must go… and follow our exact itinerary. One of the best trips of my life. Thank you again for planning this for us! I am going to recommend it and you to everyone I know!

We had a great trip – thanks in large part to you and your expertise.
Hotel Brunelleschi was great – got upgraded on Sun eve to a great suite- and the breakfasts were wonderful.

We loved Casa Angelina -staff was amazing and we are very glad that we decided to stay in the quieter area of Praiano – their dining room dinners and breakfast were the nicest we have ever experienced.
Pogglio Piglia was fantastic!
Beautiful property, lots of places to visit from there that us not far and the grounds/pool were gorgeous!!
The manager was fantastic with great customer service!

Thank you.

Punta Cana was absolutely awesome. Thank you for all your hard work. Mom couldn’t have been happier and Marcelino was a blessing. He became part of the family! He even brought his son to my Moms birthday celebration. Thank you so much again,

Hi Cheri,

What a wonderful vacation we had. Thanks for all you did. It was an awesome experience.

Yesterday went like clockwork. All of the wheelchairs, all of the vans, in all the right places, at all the right times, with well-informed helpers who needed no instructions.

Willma was amazed, and at one point even declared planning to be a valuable skill to avoid tricky situations. Imagine that.

To say the very (very) least, this operation could have been utterly FUBAR without Cheri’s help.

She has made miracles happen for our family. If you plan to go anywhere (and also ensure whiteglove service in the bargain), call her.

Hi Cheri,

This email is long overdue. Things just got busy so quickly here. Long story short the trip was amazing! Food was pretty spectacular and the service was superb. They upgraded us for free to the excellence club ( I am sure you had your hand in that!). We will definitely be using you again for our future travel plans! We also gave your info to a few guests we met out there. Thanks again for everything.

Cheri,

Thank you for the help and time you spent with me(us) to plan our 30th anniversary Spain trip. I appreciate your patience with my endless questions and indecisiveness. It was an amazing trip to a beautiful country full of culture, history, good food, great vino and cava.

We also enjoyed your recommendation for Punta Cana.

I look forward to planning more vacations with your help!

Cheri,

I am thrilled that I was introduced to you and clearly you seem to know exactly what we like/dislike and you seem to have our taste as far as places to travel. You have no idea how difficult it has been to find a travel agent that knows the Caribbean and resorts as well as you do!

“Until I worked with Cheri, I never realized how important having a great travel agent is. I always booked travel myself on line. From here on in, I will use Cheri for all of my travel needs. She is very knowledgeable, a pleasure to work with, honest and works really hard to get her client the very best deal. Thanks.” January 26, 2012

Cheri,

Thank you so much for everything you did for our honeymoon and recent vacation. To be honest we were very skeptical about working with a travel advisor but you have completely changed our opinion. You have done an awesome job and we have enjoyed every time we have worked with you. My husband and I are always so busy with work and a variety of other things. When it comes to planning a vacation I don’t want to be stressed out and you have completely taken that stress away.

Thank you for always suggesting many different vacation spots for us to choose from. We have loved both places that we have been to and are truly thankful for all you have done for us. Not only did you just book our vacations but you always looked for a way to make it even better. The resort had a “Happy Birthday” sign on our door and fresh flowers in the room when it was my birthday and it was so nice. We so appreciated your suggestion for private transfers as we were then able to spend less time in the car and more time at the beach!

We loved working with you and can’t wait to work with you again (we are also recommending you to everyone we know).

Dear Cheri,

What a FANTASTIC vacation we had, all to your credit. I can’t tell you how grateful my husband and I are for your wonderful help, insight and planning.

The cruise ship and itinerary that you suggested were perfect – an exact fit for what we wanted. The stateroom was extraordinary, as was the services on Regent Cruises. The ports of call and the on-shore excursions were outstanding, just as you said.

Best of all, was the hotel that you booked for us for the 2-nights we spent in Venice. OMG – my husband couldn’t even believe it. It was like a second honeymoon. The hotel overlooked the most romantic view of the “back bridges” of Venice, and the service was over the top. We found out later that we had “the best room of the house” when we had booked a standard room. Don’t know how you did it!!

All-in-all, it was one of the best vacations that we have ever had. Thank you for knowing what we wanted and knowing how to get it. I can’t stop telling my friends of our great time. Indeed, they can’t believe that using the services of a travel consultant is so worth it – and it doesn’t cost anymore than Travelocity or Orbitz, etc. I told them to try Cheri just once – and they will be convinced.

Again, many thanks,

My husband and I decided to take a four week vacation to Hawaii and Thailand with three young children (10, 9 and 4 years old). Typically, we book our own travel but, based on an impressive recommendation from a friend, we decided to see if Cheri Forzani could help us book flights, hotels, cars, etc. for this trip. I have seen the light. We will be hard-pressed to ever travel anywhere without Cheri’s sage advice and assistance. Not only did Cheri negotiate fantastic rates at every hotel (and there were six of them), but each hotel matched our expectations and often gave us complimentary upgrades. Cheri made sure free breakfasts were included (a real savings with a big family) and contacted all of the hotels to make sure our rooms were well-positioned. She also arranged for a local company to drive us to and from the various airports in Thailand which was a huge bonus. I never would have thought of this and it made a tremendous difference at a reasonable price. Just prior to leaving for our trip, a detailed itinerary was mailed to the house along with various e-mails recommending things to pack, places to visit while in Thailand, emergency numbers, travel insurance, etc. Cheri is a true professional and a delight to work with. I cannot recommend her highly enough and will certainly be a repeat customer. July 31, 2011
