Lucy planned our perfect honeymoon! She was so helpful, supportive and communicative throughout the entire process. She really listened to what we were looking for in a vacation and made it so stress-free for my husband and I. She gave us excellent resources and advice as new travelers and completely planned our trip to include hotels, transportation and excursions to create an amazing trip! I would highly recommend Lucy to anyone as she is so accommodating and helpful! We loved how easy this process was and can’t wait to use Lucy again for another trip in the future! Thank you, Lucy!

I’ve been dealing with Lucy for about 10 years now and she knocked it out of the park again with our first visit in Greece. Thank you so much for definitely our best vacation ever. Thank you for continuing to help us make beautiful memories.

Lucy is fantastic! My wife and I got introduced to Lucy through my parents, and we have been using her for every trip ever since. Our first experience using Lucy’s services was when my wife and I got married in Italy. We knew that most of our guests would be taking a trip prior or after our wedding, so we provided Lucy’s name to all 50 guest as a resource to help plan their trips. She worked with almost all of them and we got feedback about how great Lucy was! Not only did she help our guests, but also she helped us plan our few days leading up to the wedding and then our mini moon after the wedding. Some of our best memories were planned by Lucy.

Since our trip to Italy, Lucy has helped us plan many more great trips, both within the US and internationally. After following up with many of our guests, it sounds like they also are still leveraging Lucy’s services for their upcoming trips. I would highly recommend Lucy to any friends or family.

Thank you Lucy for the great memories you’ve helped us make!

We have used Lucy’s travel services for several years and we have never been disappointed. However, last year Lucy truly surpassed all our expectations. Our son got married in Italy and there were about 50 guests invited to the wedding. Almost all of them were going to take a trip either prior to the wedding or after the wedding. We offered Lucy’s name to all of our guests and she worked with almost everyone who attended. Everyone had a fabulous time and terrific vacation, including my wife and I. We traveled to parts of Italy we had never seen before both prior to the wedding and after the wedding and all of the planning was done by Lucy. The entire trip went off without a hitch and all of Lucy’s recommendations were spot on.

We have also used Lucy for quick get-aways and whether it is a big trip overseas or a weekend in Virginia, Lucy’s attention to detail and follow-up is unsurpassed. We would highly recommend her and we will continue to use her especially as the world re-opens next year.

I am so happy to have found Lucy van den Brand and the Cruise & Travel Experts!
Planning a first cruise made me a little nervous, so turning to the experts seemed like the way to go – and experts they are. Lucy was a joy to work with right from the start, answering my million questions and taking care of arrangements for a fabulous Land & Sea Journey to Alaska. The trip was a dream vacation for my mother, sister, and me, and the planning was handled beautifully – we were able to relax and just enjoy the travel.
I will definitely turn to Lucy and the Cruise & Travel Experts for future cruise vacations and am happy to recommend them to friends, as well!

Our experience with Lucy has ONLY been positive. She puts her heart and soul into everything she does, whether it’s an email, an update, a suggestion, sending brochures, etc. She truly makes you feel as if you are the ONLY person she is working with.

Thank you for your wonderful and quick service. I would recommend you highly!

It was a wonderful trip and we had a fabulous time and Lucy did an amazing job arranging everything for us. We did want to ask if you arranged for the bottle of champagne in our first hotel room? If so it was a great gesture that we greatly appreciated. All the hotels were great and very comfortable and great locations. La Tomatina was a once in a life experience, actually I shouldn’t say that I would do it again and may do it again in the future if the opportunity is there. The company was great, very well organized and provided us with all the information and items that we needed to have the best time that day. I briefly looked at the photos that they posted and I don’t see any of us, but we are getting our own photos developed and if any turn out good I will send some to you. Again we wanted to thank you for your hard work and great job at organizing the trip for us. We will be recommending you to our friends for their trips and when our next trip comes up I will be reaching out to you again.

I know what the highlight of my summer was — Alaska! The cruise was very nice and a great way to see the beautiful state of Alaska. I felt like there were picture-perfect views and scenery everywhere you looked, day or night. The beauty, history, and and natural wildlife of the state is beyond compare! We hit the ground running every day with excursions and did not return back to the ship until it was time to leave….We did not want to miss a thing! Our favorite ports were Icy Strait Point and Skagway. Anchorage also has a lot to see and do and is a very manageable “city.”

I can’t thank you enough for all of your help.You made everything run so smoothly and effortlessly and took the stress out of the planning what was a very important and meaningful trip for us.

With my wedding steadily approaching, my Fiance and I knew that Hawaii was our ideal choice for the Honeymoon but the planning was extremely intimidating considering we both have never been before. Lucy came highly recommended and it couldn’t be more obvious why! Lucy made a daunting process seem simple and took all the stress out of planning a 12 day escape across the country. Everything from flights to hotels to location to adventure & excursions were set in place within our established budget with absolutely no hiccups along the way. My now Husband and I were amazed at how seamless the itinerary fell in to place. Lucy is prompt, thorough and a pleasure to work with!

Not only do I highly recommend Lucy to anyone with upcoming travel plans, we will be using her consistently for years to come!

Lucy has planned several trips for us, from a romantic tour across Italy, to a family vacation in Costa Rica. Lucy’s wealth of experience, local knowledge and breadth of contacts, helped make our vacations memorable and perfect! She really works hard to understand what you want from your vacation, and then customizes the experience to ensure you get exactly what you asked for. Her hotel selection, selection of excursions and tours, plus private tour guides, made our experiences ones that will last our lifetime. Thanks again Lucy and we will call you soon for our next adventure!
