"Dubai was our number one item on our bucket list of adventures. This was the most phenomenal experience for us! Jonelle left no stones unturned. She could not have done a better job in planning our daily experiences in Dubai. She maximized our time to the fullest! We made lifelong friends within the group and the fun and laughter during those 8 days far exceeded any other travel experience that we've enjoyed. From accommodations to food to experiences -- we rated it AAA+ in our book. We will not hesitate to book or travel with Jonelle again." -- Dean & Elaine, Maryland
"This is my second trip with Jonelle, we did Greece first BUT...South Africa was another level!!! I’d been waiting to go on this trip for a little over a year and it was WELL worth the it. Every detail from our Table Mountain photoshoot to our luxury stay at Kapama was flawless. Not only did Jonelle plan every detail to perfection but she was also flawless with the follow up before our trip. While on the trip I literally did not have to think about a single thing. Do yourself a favor and book with Jonelle you’ll be happy you did."
