Perfect Name – Excellence!!!
“After the service that we received by Journeys of Excellence I found myself truly needing to write a review. We approached Journeys of Excellence with the idea that we wanted to go somewhere “warm”. That’s all we knew. Mike took so much time to get to know us and share is experience (and he truly had so much to share) that we started to get very excited from day 1. This was only the beginning. After our initial consultation (which was over the phone by the way because we were calling from Chicago), Mike worked up several well thought out options for us to choose from. I have to say that he absolutely nailed it!!! He obviously listened and knew who we were when he finished up his consultation. The only problem that we had with him was that he gave us so many awesome options that we now have to keep booking so that we can see all the wonderful places.
My experience prior to working with Journeys was that other agencies would just give us a brochure or ask us where we wanted to go and then email a price. Mike started off by asking if we were set on a destination first and when we said no said “good, that’s where I come in. He wanted to provide us with options and got excited that he could make our dreams come true – that was more than evident. When he says that he cares, he truly means it. Rather than just sending us prices, Mike prepared a customer presentation based on our profile. I have never received that level of professionalism and service in my life and just want to say that it was refreshing.
Also, Mike made it very clear that he would never book us in a resort that he would not stand behind. He truly cares about his company’s reputation – enough to turn business away if is the difference between providing an experience that is not up to his standards. Although this could cost him some business, I felt that is standards should be respected and always felt secure knowing that we were going to have a great experience – AND WE DID!!!! We ended up with an amazing resort in Costa Rica (a destination that we had not even considered) and what an experience!!!!
Without a doubt, we will be booking every trip with Journeys of Excellence in the future and will always recommend them to our friends. Thanks Mike for all of your help and for giving us the dreams honeymoon that we never even imagined until meeting you!!”

Our Wedding Was Perfect for Us!!
“Our wedding was perfect–for us! That is the special energy that Mike brought to our plans. He asked great questions and took the time to get to know us so he could make the best recommendation based on what was important to us. We ended up planning the wedding and honeymoon a little differently than what I originally had in mind, but I am so glad I listened to Mike’s recommendations! Based on his years of travel planning experience, his actual experience staying at many of the resorts he recommends, and also his understanding of us as a couple, he was able to connect us with the ideal location with outstanding service and attention to detail–all at a great price. Our wedding and honeymoon actually worked out better than I thought possible–from private transportation to a lovey, caribbean resort to our simple but elegant ceremony in a beach gazebo to the couples massage and romantic candlelight dinner on the beach–it was amazing–and exactly right for us. Since our wedding, I have recommended Mike to others and the same process occurs: he makes the effort to get to know you and that way he can help create an experience that is perfect for you. I recommend a conversation with Mike. I think you will know right off if he is a good connection for you and if you can work well together to bring your wedding dreams into reality.”

Highly recommend, would use again!
Glad to Have Met Mike
OMG – Best Service & Honeymoon Ever!!!!!
My now husband Josh & I contacted Journeys of Excellence after getting completely overwhelmed trying to figure out where to go on our honeymoon. We were amazed to say the least by the level of service that we got. Mike was so knowledgeable about SO much. We asked about Italy – Been there! St. Lucia – Been there! Mexico – Been there!!! We decided that we wanted an all-inclusive in the Caribbean and oh my Gosh, he knew SO much about SO many resorts. I cannot even say how impressed and most of all comfortable we were working with him. He was able to get us so much added value for our honeymoon and the resort that he recommended was absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!!! Believe every good word you hear about Journeys of Excellence because they are the real thing. We had gone to another travel agency before meeting Mike and they basically just gave us a brochure and said decide where you want to go and we will provide a price – no customer service. Mike was all about service and provided us with so many wonderful options and personal recommendations that it was actually hard to choose. Well, we just got home and let me tell you that the honeymoon actually exceeded our expectations. Mike is super friendly, accommodating, service oriented, well-traveled, passionate and awesome at what he does. We were so lucky to have met him and would like to recommend Journeys of Excellence to anyone that is taking a honeymoon, destination wedding or traveling anywhere. Mike knows his stuff and is well connected – Thank you Mike from the bottom of our hearts for making our honeymoon so perfect. We will absoluely be calling soon for our anniversary!!!!

Perfect Honeymoon – Perfect Service!
We went to Mike from Journeys of Excellence to help with our honeymoon. He gave us more attention than we ever expected. The first thing that we noticed and that made us very comfortable was that he truly loves what he does and it showed. He spent A LOT of time with us finding the perfect honeymoon destination and resort. He knew a lot about a lot. It seemed that no matter what questions we through at him, he either knew right off or got the answer to very quickly. Our wedding is not until October of this year, but we now have one less thing to be stressed about and quite honestly look forward to the most. Mike’s enthusiasm carried through to us and now we are counting the days for our honeymoon. Thanks SO MUCH for everything Mike!!!
