What our guests say about this trip

Without any reservation would I recommend working with Sarah and her team at Enchanting Travels. They work really hard to ensure you have the best time. And, I did! Hands down one of the best vacation experiences I’ve ever had. They are very good at communicating and helping with details along the way during the trip. Catherine was kind enough even to have a pizza delivered to my hotel when I felt too tired to go out. I am a higher maintenance traveler, and I never felt like I wasn’t getting exactly what I wanted, requested or desired. It was really outstanding both from a customer service perspective and guest fulfillment of expectations perspective. I have traveled extensively and have always handled my own details, however, I decided to hand the reigns over and boy, was that just the best decision ever?! 100%!! Book with Enchanting Travels. You won’t regret it and you will have the time of your life. Enjoy!
