future client. I will be sure to send any business I can your way!"

  

-- Jacqueline D. (friends' vacation to Mexico)

"Hi Dena, I just wanted to drop a note of thanks for the wonderful experience in Paris. Your knowledge of the city, means of transportation, highlights, etc. made the trip even more spectacular than it would have been otherwise. Your enthusiasm was inspiring and only served to heighten my appreciation of the art that is Paris. Truly an experience I will not forget. I've attached a picture I thought you might like to have."

"What can I possibly say about Dena and her fabulous company, Tiki Trips? Tiki Trips simply wouldn't be what it is without Dena's infectious energy and enthusiasm. I have rarely met someone who loves what they do as much as Dena and it shows. Whether it's a quick trip home to Phoenix or an exotic vacation, Dena knows exactly where I should stay and what I should see. She knows travel and more importantly, she understands her clients. She is competent and passionate about her profession. One more thing... on a practical note... in today's internet age, we have the impression that we can somehow get a better "deal" by booking our travel on one of the various internet travel sites. Out of curiosity, I have compared the package I purchased through Dena (air, car, hotel) with the 'deals' available on the internet and Dena's packages are always affordable PLUS they come with her service, knowledge and expertise! Why purchase travel anywhere else? Sincerely, Dori"

  

-- Dori W. (various personal travels/vacations)

“The wedding was most amazing and I could not have dreamed it any better! You rock for all your help and support! I have a picture book to drop off at your office for future brides to flip through. Also, do you happen to have the address at the Iberostar resort? I’d like to send her (the wedding coordinator) a gift for everything she did for us. She was so on top of everything! Nothing went wrong! It was most amazing! Thanks again for all you help! FYI – we will be planning another trip back to the same place, please keep us in mind. Brent & I hope you have a great holiday season and we look forward to working with you ladies again!”

 

-- Sherry & Brent D. (bride & groom, destination wedding group & honeymoon)

"Thank you so much for planning our honeymoon in Italy. We had the best trip of our lives! It was so nice to have everything planned and not have to worry about anything. I was so glad our other trip got cancelled (booked on the internet but was cancelled by internet company) because we wouldn't have gone to Sorrento and that was our favorite part of the trip! We were so glad to not be on a tour once we got there. It was great to be on our own schedule and sleep in or take a nap whenever we wanted. We loved all the hotels you booked and they were in great locations. Thanks again for the great trip-- we had a wonderful time!" 

 

-- Ashli & Jared P. (honeymoon to Italy-- Rome, Sorrento/Amalfi coast, Florence & Venice)

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..  

"Good morning. I wanted to thank you as well. We had a great time at the Iberostar Grand and the wedding went off without an issue. It was a beautiful place to stay and the service was outstanding. Everyone that went keep saying that it was the nicest place they had been and cannot wait to return. Thanks"

  

-- Jim S. (groom, destination wedding group)

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..  

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your efforts on behalf of Dave and I. The all-inclusive Iberostar Grand Hotel was wonderful; food exceptional and staff was priceless. Our room on the Caribbean (oceanfront) was great and the adult-only environment was perfect for us. We had some prime time to visit with Jim and Amy (see above post) as we waited on our flights, so again, thanks for getting us on their flights. We had never experienced an all-inclusive arrangement, but found it A+, so we will definitely do this again. Have a great day and THANKS!"

 

-- Patty and Dave S. (destination wedding travelers & parents to groom Jim S. above)

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..  

"Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for booking our honeymoon in Kauai, Hawaii. Our room at the Kauai Marriot Resort was fabulous. We could see and hear the Pacific Ocean from our balcony. We loved exploring the island. It is absolutely gorgeous. We took a helicopter ride and a Catamaran sunset cruise to the Napali Coast. We both cannot get over what a true "fantasy island" Kauai is. We loved our one day in Honolulu too. Getting to go on board the U.S.S. Arizona at Pearl Harbor is an experience that we will cherish the rest of our lives. Thank you again for making our honeymoon so special. We understand why Hawaii is one of your favorite destinations. It is one of ours now too. Mahalo!"

   

-- Lesli and Jimmy F. (honeymoon)

“On behalf of my husband and I, I would like to thank you all for helping us with the beautiful honeymoon. We went to Couples San Souci in August and had an amazing time. Though it was definitely more humid than we expected, it didn't stop us from having such a wonderful time. The hotel, food, water, and people were amazing. We climbed Dunn's River and will always remember the countless amount of times that we heard "Ya mon!" Thank you again for helping us plan this beautiful trip. I just visited your site and I wanted to get some information about the Tiki Heads. We love traveling and wanted to get some additional information about the next trip! Thank you”—

 

-- Jennifer and Michael T. (honeymoon)

"There is no other travel agency who hosts pre-trip and post-trip parties for group travelers to get to know each other and then celebrate pictures like you do. I travel a lot for business, so when I choose to travel for pleasure, you take care of all my needs so I can enjoy my time off. When I book through your agency, I can rest assured there are no surprises. If there are unfortunate circumstances (bad weather, flight delay), they are resolved efficiently to my satisfaction. You uncover excellent deals to exotic locations through your extensive network and personal travel experience. Thanks for all you do. I look forward to many more trips throughout the years".

“Dena, I just want to let you know how much we appreciated everything you did for us.  Our trip to Mexico was unbelievable to say the least!  They had us set up in a suite over looking the beach with an amazing view of the ocean!  We couldn't have asked for a better trip. We will definitely be using your services again for all of our future travels! Thanks again”—

"Dena, I sincerely appreciate your attitude and your smile. I would like to share something... the first time I met you (Tiki Heads group trip), my husband had just passed away. I wanted to die and crawl into a hole! My friend Mary T. would not let me. She's the one who arranged the trip to Jamaica. Your lovely attitude and kindness helped me through a very difficult time. Please remember, you make a difference! God be with you today! Warm regards"--

"Hi Dena!! I would like to thank you SO much for all of your help this past summer in advising and scheduling our honeymoon!! It was truly the most amazing time of our lives, and we can't thank you enough for helping to make it absolutely perfect ;-)  We are now in the process of planning our big family vacation for next summer, We absolutely LOVED Iberostar Grand, where we stayed for our honeymoon, and cannot stop telling our family about it, we absolutely fell in love with the property. My family is very interested in going back to where we stayed and we would be going with the entire family. Thanks so much in advance for all your help, and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!

“Hi Dena! Jesse and I are home from our wedding.  We had a blast!  We didn't want to go home on Wednesday so we asked if we could extend our stay. We got to stay until Saturday! I cried on Sunday when our guests left the resort.  We all had such a wonderful time together that I was sad to see everyone leave.  And, later that day Jesse and I were talking about the week, and we both ended up crying on the beach!  Happy tears are the best! :-)  Our wedding was better than I ever imagined it would be! I will email you our pictures as soon as I get them on the computer. Thank you so much for helping us!  Everything was perfect!  Everyone had so much fun together that our guests keep telling us that they all want to take another trip together next year!  I just keep telling everyone to ask me after my bags are unpacked from this one!  :-) :-)   Thanks again for everything! And to your staff as well! Our trip was fabulous! Talk to you soon”—

-- Matt L. (honeymoon to Kauai)
…………………………………………..…………………………………………..  

“Dena-- I just wanted to tell you thanks again for everything you do & what a wonderful time we had in Mexico at the Iberostar Grand. Your recommendation and the way you handled the details was perfect.  Our 30th anniversary will not be forgotten. From the car service at the airport to the champagne, rose petals and towel swan sculptures on the bed to the hot rose petaled bubble bath waiting when we returned from dinner couldn't have been better.  The food and service was 6 star on the scale of 1 to 5.  Thanks again for your help!”

 

-- Craig W. (anniversary trip)

"I wanted to let you all know how much fun we had in Playa del Carmen for my girlfriend's b-day! The weather was awesome, the town was so much fun, and we would have stayed for a few more days if we could have! Also, Dena recommended a great restaurant in town that made her birthday dinner an unforgettable one!"

 

-- Paul G. (birthday trip)

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..  

“Dear Dena-- We would just like to thank you for the great recommendation you had to the Iberostar Quetzal in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. The resort was breathtaking, proven as we walked through the outdoor hallways and saw monkeys playing in the trees. The landscape and placement of rooms was magnificent. We looked for the pearly white gates as we stepped onto the private, white sand beach. The view of the crystal clear ocean against the soft white sand was mind blowing. Possibly the best choice we made was going with the All Inclusive package, as they spared no expense on either the food or making the six fruit daiquiri on request. All in all, this was the best vacation we have ever had and we doubt we'll ever be able to top it! I would suggest this opportunity of a lifetime to who ever has the chance to take it. It was amazing! Thanks for all of your help”--

   

-- Joseph & Jessica H.  (honeymoon)

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..  

"We just want to say THANK YOU Dena, everything was so beautiful, RIU PALACE is wonderful, the food, the beach, everywhere you go in Playa del Carmen is pretty. We won't forget our honeymoon, everything was excellent. We just want to come back again soon... was so nice to work with you!!!!! Thanks again"

“Hey Dena, I wanted to let you know what a great time I had on the Mexico trip.  The whole group was a lot of fun, I know I'll become a regular on your trips!  Thank you so much for all of the arrangements you had made for us, it was a fabulous time.  I've already been talking up your future trips with friends and family, so I intend on bringing others with me on the next trip.  Would it be possible for you to email me that picture of the liquor bottles on tap at the Riu resort?  Pictures are worth 1000 words.  I'm also real bad about taking group pics, so if you have any worth sharing from the trip, I'd love to see - all of my pictures are just of the scenery.  Thanks again and I can't wait for the next trip!”

"Hi, Dena-- We just got back from our honeymoon to the Dominican Republic and we wanted to check in and tell you thank you so much for helping us put together the most AMAZING vacation we have ever been on! We stayed at The Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana for 7 days of pure bliss! We were very pleased with how beautiful our resort was and not to mention our swim up suite was to die for! Nothing beats jumping right into the pool from our patio :) Although we decided only to do one excursion we booked the Marinarium which was a snorkle/booze cruise and let me tell you, it was fabulous. Thank you again for all your help and we look forward to planning many more vacations with you :-)  Sincerely, Gus and Amber"

“We just wanted to thank you so much for all of your help in arranging our trip for our wedding in Mexico. We made it back last week and are getting ready for our local reception this Saturday, so no rest yet...but we had the best time! The resort, Iberostar Tucan/Quetzal, was just great and everyone was very pleased with the accommodations. We loved all the animals, and the food was good, and most importantly, the beach and pool were great! Our 21 guests were very happy, which meant we were very happy :-)

   

Now...the most important thanks goes to you Dena, for referring us to your private wedding coordinator for the wedding coordination. She did an excellent job. She was spot on, handled everything, set up a beautiful wedding on the beach. Our flowers and pictures were amazing, the vendors she used (guitar trio, florist, cake, make-up stylist, hair stylist, minister, photographer and videographer) were all top notch and we were pleased with everything. You can see some of our pictures on our website photo album (private link). Thanks again, ladies!!”

"The honeymoon was so wonderful. We thought we were staying at Anse Chastanet, and we got in the transfer van at the airport with two other couples who also were staying at our hotel. When we arrived, the hotel orientation people separated us from the other couples and asked if it would be all right with us, they had a room at Jade Mountain for us (the spectacular upscale section of the hotel, a HUGE upgrade). We tried to play it cool, but we were SO excited. I am not sure why they picked us to get the upgrade instead of the others, but that made the trip 20 times better! The people at Anse/Jade were AMAZINGLY NICE. From the receptionist to the butlers & the bartenders & waitresses. Everyone could not have been nicer. So glad we went, it was perfect for the honeymoon. We would love to go back again. If you remember, when you booked us at the Iberostar Grand in the Riviera Maya, we also got upgraded when we arrived! We LOVED LOVED LOVED the Iberostar Grand. I would go back there again soon, maybe even this summer. Hope all is well and talk to you soon!!"

“Dena, I just wanted to let you know how great our trip to Costa Rica was last week.  The resort was fantastic with excellent food, a great pool, and everyone was so helpful and friendly.  We took 3 different tours; a canopy tour, a trip to the rainforest/hot springs/and Arenal volcano, and the shopping trip into Liberia.  The tour guides and drivers were the absolute best.  Their English was almost perfect and they had a wonderful sense of humor.  Thanks for all your help in arranging such a wonderful vacation for Holly and myself.”

"Thanks so much for arranging everything on our fabulous Maui honeymoon.  The accommodations were great!  I think the Feast at Lele (gourmet luau) was our favorite.  We had a private table just a few feet from the stage (courtesy of Tiki Trips’ VIP contacts). Awesome! The villa (Kapalua Villas’ gold oceanfront villa) was amazing! 30 feet from the ocean and remodeled incredibly! We were thrilled. Thanks for all your hard work in making our honeymoon so wonderful".

“Jon and I had such a wonderful time on our trip through Europe!  You did an amazing job planning things for us; the hotels were beautiful with gracious staff, and you picked perfect locations that made it really easy for us to get around on the trains.  Rome was our absolute favorite place...you were right about how much there is to see and do there.  I'm glad we took your advice to stay more nights than we'd originally been thinking.  We explored all of the major historic sights, and were able to take in many other wonderful things to do, see, and eat! Our favorite times were walking the streets of Rome at night; one evening we were meandering along and came upon the Pantheon.  It was just as breathtaking in the night as it was when we'd visited it earlier that day.  We sat and enjoyed a beer in the square while people-watching and soaking in the history around us - amazing to think that people made something so perfect with nothing more than their brains to calculate with and their hands and simple tools to create with. We also really loved St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. In fact, we liked them so much, we decided to push

back our departure from Rome a few hours, which worked very well because of the flexible rail passes you booked for us.

    

I've focused a lot on Rome in my comments, because it was just so wonderful.  We also loved Florence, Venice, and Munich!  We had the hangovers to prove it in Munich, too.  :-)  We've got pics from all of the places, including several of the hotels, and I'd wanted to send some to you today, but they are on my home computer and I'm writing you this from work. Anyway, just wanted you to know what an all-around amazing trip you planned for us, and how much we appreciate Tiki Trips!  You were our first call this trip, and will be next time too!”

"We had a FABULOUS time and loved the hotel. You made it so easy for us and everything went (or at least appeared) to go so easy. You made it such a smooth and stress-free vacation for us, and we really appreciate it. I was slightly leery at first about not having to spend any additional money once we got there, but it was absolutely TRUE (all inclusive) - however I did indulge in some spa treatments on my own accord. Thank you so much for such a relaxing time and your sweet demeanor! Hope to be joining the TIKI HEADS on future trips!"

-- Edward L. (groom, destination wedding group & honeymoon)

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..  

"We had such an awesome time down there (Playa del Carmen). Let's see, the room (beachfront junior suite) was right on the beach and was

awesome. The food, awesome as well. We went horseback riding and to Cozumel for shopping. The time was awesome and we want to go back

(we did not want to come back). Thank you so much. By far an awesome honeymoon vacation that was well worth it! We are telling people to

book their trips down there with you".

   

-- Chris B. (honeymoon)

-- Ben H. (honeymoon)  

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..     

"I want to thank you for a great trip! The resort was great, food was good, drinks were very nice..... but what makes a vacation a vacation for me is the people that I meet.  Your group was awesome, and I met people that I hope to keep in touch with for years to come......or at least till I tick them off (ha ha)… so thank you for your help and for allowing me to attend!"

 

-- Scott M. (many Tiki Heads' group adventure)

"You helped us plan our honeymoon to Iberostar in Jamaica and I wanted to let you know we had the time of our LIVES. It was the most amazing vacation I've ever been on. I played golf in college and was lucky enough to travel to many nice places-- this resort was by far the best. I cannot thank you enough for giving us the best trip ever! I am definitely going to refer and recommend your company to anyone and everyone!"

 

-- Missy B. (honeymoon)

We also appreciate your help and patience when we had that itinerary snafu, it was nice to have a helping hand on the other line.

Thanks again, take care, and we'll be sure to recommend anyone back in Dallas to you when they are planning similar vacations. Aloha and mahalo”--

"Dena, as always, did a fabulous job in planning our trip. While we were in Maui on our honeymoon, she recommended Kapalua Villas. It was perfect! We really enjoyed being away from the crowds of a resort hotel. The views were magnificent and the place was secluded. We also had access to two world class neighboring hotels for all of the amenities we could want. The best part was that while we avoided the chaos of Lahaina, we were just minutes away from all of the activities and shopping. We only use Dena for our travel needs and we would stay at Kapalua Villas again".

     

-- Aaron & Jennifer M . (honeymoon & various vacations)  

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..     

"Dena -- just got back from Royal Hideaway in Playa and had a fantastic time. I think it was about the BEST service I've had in a hotel in a long time… beats the Four Seasons in the Caribbean hands-down. Thanks for all the help!  I must say the first class on Aeromexico makes such a huge difference as well.  I will definitely call again when I need some travel planning… all the best"--

     

-- Melody M. (solo getaway)

"Things have finally settled down after returning from our destination wedding in Mexico. We had such a great time- it was beautiful!! They even moved our wedding site to the Grand rather than the Maya because we had such a large group :-)  My wedding was definitely everything I'd hoped for and more! Thanks again"

  

-- Jamie F. (bride, destination wedding & honeymoon)

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..     

"Thank you for putting together our honeymoon trip. I had heard from many folks what a great job you do, and as a first time customer I have to agree. We had next to no dilemmas from air to ground transport to accommodation and return. Everything was as you said it would be and even more. All-Inclusive is All-Right! Thank you for all you do in providing such a high quality service."

     

-- Tim & Katie P. (honeymoon)

…………………………………………..…………………………………………..     

"Just wanted to pass on a compliment about our wonderful trip.  It was our first time to Mexico and I was a little nervous about traveling out of the states, but everything went very smooth, and the staff at the Iberostar Paraiso Maya were wonderful.  We will be making this trip and annual event from now on.  Thank you for a very memorable trip, and please pass on a thank you to the Maya staff. Thank you"--

"I just wanted to thank you for recommending Iberostar Paraiso Maya to us!  We loved it. You were right, the website doesn’t do it justice. I will definitely go back there.  I told a lady I work with how we just took your advice and loved it.  She asked for your information, so hopefully she will be contacting you soon!"

"Let me begin by saying that our vacation to the Iberostar Paraiso Maya resort was THE BEST VACATION EVER!!! The trip was wonderful from beginning to the end! As we were signing in at the guest reception, a waitress was serving refreshing Conga drinks! Our rooms were very spacious, especially the bathrooms. The decor was great! The grounds were neatly trimmed with beautiful flowering plants everywhere. We took lots of pictures and everyone who looks at them always comment on how pretty the landscape and grounds are. The pools were FABULOUS!!!! The large lagoon pools were sooooo large that no matter how many people were in them, that it never felt crowded! Our girls loved the Wave pool and we all loved the Lazy River. The nightly entertainment was one of our favorite parts of the trip! The service was outstanding! I cannot begin to tell you in words how impressive the service is at this resort. All of the staff were excellent! All stopped and smiiled at us and spoke as we met them. Our room was perfectly cleaned with cute surprises everyday (chocolates on the bed, flowers on the bed, bubblebath and flowerpetals in the tub, etc). The food at all of the resturants was very good!! We loved the big variety of types of food, I'm so thankful that we did not weigh before we left and then after we came home! We all enjoyed eating lots and having ice cream at the ice cream bar every afternoon! Thank you for introducing us to the Iberostar Paraiso Maya Resort in the Riviera Maya. We have beautiful memories and pictures from this vacation and Senior trip for my daughter. We certainly appreciate your help!"
