Hi Joy, Our stay at the Excellence Riviera Cancun was amazing! The hotel was beautiful the rooms are so nice, the staff was nice and helpful it was paradise! Thank you so much for helping Tyler and I find this amazing hotel for our honeymoon. We cant wait to have you help us on any vacations we take in the future.
Thank You, Austen & Tyler
My husband and I used Joy to help with the planning and booking of our honeymoon. We decided to take a trip of a lifetime to both Italy and Ireland and neither of us had been overseas at all. Joy was a wealth of knowledge that provided us with peace of mind that we didn’t have to worry about the honeymoon we could focus on the wedding. She really provided us with great advice as to how much to do while in Italy and Ireland as well as what to make sure we do. I am so glad we put the most important trip in her hands as it turned out perfect. This trip really sparked the idea of going on so many more trips and I wouldn’t hesitate at all to use Joy again.

Wow---OMG--- outstanding-- over the top-- unbelievable-- great and most of all VERY MAGICAL all of these describe our stay at Silversands. From the time we left the house to the time we arrived in Mexico everything went very smooth. We can't thank you enough for putting together this "lifetime experience" for us. United was great and getting our boarding pass and checking our luggage was as smooth as we have ever had. Needless to say the weather was over the top 85 degrees and dropping down to 75 at night, I could live like that, HA. The food , the service, the staff was great. We have told many of our friends of the great job you have done for us so you can be expecting some phone calls from them. Joy, I can't thank you enough, this vacation was awesome and we look forward to working with you again in setting up another time for Lori and me.

Hey Joy! The wedding was wonderful and the honeymoon was so great! We enjoyed getting away and seeing the sun before returning to the cold rain. The flights were on time and early each time we flew. The Excellence Resort was great but the food was just ok. We did enjoy the Italian Restaurant and dinner on the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we made friends with other couples that were there.
It was a great experience and we were so thankful we had you for our travel agent and that you had us super prepared! We appreciate everything you did and how hard you worked to make sure it was perfect for us! We will definitely refer you to other couples that are looking to travel!

Joy, There aren't words to convey what an amazing over the top experience we all had in Hawaii! Oh YES!! This trip was everything we hoped for and MUCH MORE!!!! Magical is the word that comes to mind!!!! Thank you for your all your hard efforts in putting together such a large group!
The Waikaloa was absolutely gorgeous and met all our families needs! There were so many fun things to do and see there! The dolphins were a favorite spot! Our rooms had spectacular ocean views and as far as we could tell they were some of the best on site!
Joy, can't thank you enough for all your hard work in making this the most memorable trip we have ever taken!!! It really was blessed in every way!!! You did a Fabulous job and keeping us so well informed every step of the way with all your detailed instructions!!!!!!

There are many different types of vacations I do but, for one client it was a "CELEBRATION OF LIFE" for his 3 year old son who passed away last year from a battle with cancer. He and his 8 year old daughter shared this 1 year anniversary trip in Oahu to bond and celebrate Gavin's life.
"Dylan and I had a blast, I do think she'll remember this trip long into her golden years. She was so excited on the plane it got to be little too much. Are we there? How much longer? I mean like every fifteen minutes of a six hour flight. Monday - we went paddle boarding in the lagoon outside the hotel. Tuesday - swam with the dolphins Wednesday - went on a dolphin watch, snorkeling/swimming trip in the deep sea Thursday - the Luau at the Center Friday - (Gavin's actual passing date) we swam in the beach all day and watched fireworks from the beach at the Hilton Hawaiian as we night swam. Perfect way to celebrate Gavin's life and end our vacation. Dylan was busy the whole time, if she wasn't swimming in the pools at the hotel, we were on the move doing some kind of activity. It ROCKED I appreciate all that you did Joy. This vacation is absolutely one of the best I've ever taken. It was a great to bond with her in a "one on one" setting. I couldn't think of any other way to celebrate and honor the life of my son, Gavin. Thank you so very much for setting up the balloon ceremony and all your suggestions to make this vacation so very special!!"
Joy is absolutely amazing! Makes you feel so safe and secure about every little step in your planning. Can't wait to book more trips with her!

"Joy, I can’t thank you enough for a phenomenal Disney experience! As you know, my family has never done Disney before and I was COMPLETELY overwhelmed at the thought of planning a Disney World adventure. Being a working mom of three active children left me little time to plan anything, let alone this trip. I thank my lucky stars that I found Travel Journeys! I feel so blessed that you took over the planning and let my family and I actually enjoy our vacation. From the dining and Fast Pass reservations, to the ride recommendations, to the itinerary of where to go and when, I couldn’t have asked for more. We didn’t have a care in the world while we were there because you had already taken care of it all! Your recommendations were spot on for absolutely everything, including where to get the best food, setting up the reservations and our breakfast with the Disney characters. I am just so very grateful for everything you did for us. If I was rating you on a 5-star scale, I’d give you 10! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve told everyone I know about Travel Journeys because I truly cannot imagine doing a vacation WITHOUT you!"

"I just returned from the BEST vacation ever and I truly owe it to, Joy Ross from Travel Journeys. I explained to Joy that the goal of our trip was to Maui and Kauai, how I envisioned it and what my expectations were in regards to our stay and she nailed it! She saved me countless hours of trying to find the best fit for me and my family while trying to find the best value at the same time. I’m usually the one who has to coordinate everything on the trip and this time I didn’t have to. It was awesome. Joy was always available for questions and she even created a suggested itinerary for our stay. I think from now on I’ll be leaving the vacation planning and booking to Joy so I can actually sit back and enjoy it!"

Planning a trip to Hawaii? Who you need working with you is Joy Ross of Travel Journeys! My husband & I and our four children spent a fabulously memorable week on Big Island Hawaii. The first step I made in planning this spectacular vacation was to contact Joy several months prior to our desired travel dates. From the instant I contacted Joy, she was right there alongside us the entire time from the initial planning to the day we traveled back home from Hawaii. Because of Joy’s diligence and attention to detail, our entire experience flowed smoothly, including all flights, condominium accommodations and pre-scheduled activities. Joy genuinely cares about her clients’ satisfaction and she goes above and beyond any travel agent I have worked with in the past. Every concern or question I had prior to our trip was promptly tended to, and she even checked on us when we were still on the island as Hurricane Ana threatened to possibly disrupt our travels to return home. Joy is very responsive to all points of communication, therefore building a trusting relationship with her clients. I highly, highly recommend Joy’s services!
"Thank you so much for helping us plan such an amazing honeymoon to Costa Rica! We enjoyed our entire trip without the stress and headaches due to you. We will definitely use you again to plan our next trip and definitely recommend you to our friends and family."

"Joy I wanted to let you know how wonderful our trip was. So glad we used Travel Journeys. The hotels both exceeded our expectations. Great locations, clean, amazing breakfast..we loved them both! It was also great having the train transportation booked in advance. I would recommend Spain to anyone. There is something for everybody there. We did a day trip to Gerona (amazing) went to the Picasso museum in Barcelona, saw a show at the Music Palace in Barcelona. Hard to imagine that there is a more beautiful concert hall anywhere in the world. Did the City of Arts and Sciences complex in Valencia.
The whole trip exceeded our expectations. A great vacation Joy! Thanks for all your expertise in arranging this!"

"Joy-I want start by saying thank you for creating such a fabulous honeymoon for Megan and I. Our wedding was wonderful & the reception was even better. Not leaving the next day for our honeymoon was definitely a good idea.
As for the honeymoon it was wonderful. We took advantage of everything we could at the three Sandals Resorts. The Sandals Grande was not only the best choice for us but was by far the nicest of them. We absolutely loved the calm ocean and the immaculate grounds.
As for the experience of working with you and all your help I cannot thank you enough. We heard some horror stories of other people who tried to book their trips on their own. We would without a doubt recommend you to friends and when we return to St. Lucia would love to work with you again. I don't know if you do much with European travel but we are planning a trip to Spain, Ireland and Germany next summer.
Thank you again for your help it was an amazing place and experience.....Greg and Megan Cooper, TX"
