My husband and I booked with Ashley for our honeymoon, she was a great agent and did a fabulous job. She went above and beyond to make sure we were well prepared to make the most of our honeymoon. From recommendations to advice and travel tips, she was attentive and helpful. We have already booked many more family trips with Ashley. It is the best way to book!

“Ashley helped us plan our dream vacation, which was absolutely amazing! First off, we cannot say enough how great Ashley was. She was so responsive with e-mail and was able to answer all of our questions. In addition, she was great at planning a trip that was in our budget. We would highly recommend using Ashley for our future travel.
The trip that Ashley helped us plan was to Italy. The travel company that we used was Monogram, which was absolutely phenomenal. The trip was a total of 13 days, and we visited four major city in Italy; Sorrento, Rome, Florence, and Venice. There were several things that I loved about Monograms, but two of the biggest was the transportation was already arranged for us, and we had a local host in each city that was available 24/7. These two amenities were wonderful, because it led to a stress-free vacation. When we arrived to Sorrento, our local host was at the airport to meet us. She then rode a public bus with us and dropped us off at our hotel. She went inside the hotel, to ensure everything was ready to go. At the end of our stay in the city, the local host then traveled with us to the train station, where we took a high-speed train to the next city. The local host were so amazing, that they made sure we were on our train before they left. Once we got to the next city, we were greeted by the next host. Absolutely amazing, and stress free!
Each city was set up the same, in terms of itinerary. We were in each city for two and a half days. The first day in the city was the day of transport, and a leisure day. The second day (or first full day in the city), a tour was included by the local host. The length of time varied by the city, with the longest tour being 6 hours in Rome (obviously so many amazing things to see). The tours were great, because we had a “skip the line” for every church and attraction, which was excellent. After the tour on the second day and the third day was leisure time. During the leisure time, there were various tours/activities that could be purchased through Monogram or you could get recommendation from the local host.
All in all, this was an amazing vacation. We would highly recommend Ashley, as she was so responsive and helpful for planning our dream vacation. In addition, we would highly recommend Monogram. They were so organized and truly made for a stress-free vacation. “
Thank you again for everything!

Ashley helped us to plan our dream honeymoon! We were able to go to the islands of Oahu and Kauai in Hawaii. Ashley helped make our dream become a reality by listening to us and finding some of the best places for us to visit to get the full Hawaiian experience. Ashley is very knowledgeable about so many places and she makes vacation planning fun and stress free!

Ashley, you have been such a wonderful travel agent for the last six years. Your cheerful positive attitude and your ability to get things done have made it a pleasure to do business with you.
Since 2011, when you first planned a trip for us to Panama followed by Curacao, Turks & Caicos, Hawaii, Australia & New Zealand and Italy, vacations have been made easier. You have always stayed on top of things and given us good advice. We have had wonderful vacations!
We plan to continue to book future vacations with you. We would recommend you to anyone and I'm sure my sister will continue to use your services also.
Thank you for all of your assistance

The whole honeymoon-booking process was easy and stress-free. Ashley was extremely helpful and was able to answer all our questions and really listened to our needs and desires to help us find the perfect honeymoon. She found us a great deal and we got everything we were looking for out of our trip. We ended up going to Couples Swept Away in Negril, Jamaica and we couldn't have been happier with the value of our trip. This was the first time we had ever done an all-inclusive trip; and we made full use of the all-inclusive food, drinks, water activities, pools, and athletic facility. I would definitely consider another trip to this resort in the future.

My husband and I booked our honeymoon this past year with Ashley and couldn’t have had a better experience! Planning a wedding can be very stressful so we were extremely thankful to have Ashley’s help throughout the whole process! Our travel consultant was able to list out all available honeymoon destinations fitting our personal requests (adults-only, tropical, all-inclusive, sandy beach, activities to do, great food, safe to travel to, etc.) within our budget. We had to have sat down with our travel consultant at least 3 times before my husband and I decided on where we wanted to travel to. I can be very indecisive but our travel consultant was so patient and understanding. We never felt rushed to make a decision. It made planning our honeymoon fun! My husband and I ended up choosing a Sandals resort in Jamaica and it was by far our favorite vacation! The resort met every expectation we had and we are truly appreciative of our travel consultant for recommending the resort for our honeymoon! We had a great experience from the planning the vacation with Ashley to the finish of reaching our honeymoon destination. We would highly recommend using Ashley Mark as a travel consultant. She is super energetic, helpful, friendly, and patient. Ashley was phenomenal to work with and we can’t thank her enough.

We feel so fortunate to have accidentally stumbled on a person as amazing as Ashley! My husband and I stopped in a local travel agency and by chance Ashley was free to meet with us.
That was six years ago and Ashley has since helped not only us, but our family members and friends plan many spectacular vacations. I can’t imagine why anyone would do this solo on the internet when someone will do it all for you for free! Upon our initial meeting, we had a vague idea of what we wanted to do. Ashley listened carefully and immediately made a suggestion of an all-inclusive, adults-only resort in Punta Cana. It had been a long time since we had traveled without family and this turned out to be an amazing, romantic vacation! She made all of the arrangements for the resort, flights and transfers and we obtained all pertinent documents from her ahead of time. She spoke with us in depth about potential excursions and things to look out for. She was readily accessible via phone and e-mail. She always makes us feel like we are her only customers. We couldn’t have been happier and that has resulted in Ashley planning multiple trips with and for us. She knows our preferences for rooms, destinations, setting etc. and that clearly guides her suggestions. We have visited several islands and resorts in the Caribbean and have never been disappointed. At times we have had restrictions in our itineraries and she always successfully accommodates those. She even happily looks at our photos when we return!
In addition to Caribbean vacations, she helped in planning a variety of trips. I share these details not to elaborate on our vacations, but to point out that she is quite diverse in her knowledge and expertise. We have been out west for two weeks visiting various national parks with Trafalger, a truly bucket-list trip for me and it could not possibly be surpassed. Our daughter and her finance took the same trip prior to ours and were also ecstatic. They since worked with Ashley planning a 16 day trip to New Zealand for their honeymoon. Again, every detail was prearranged and went perfectly smoothly. She assisted us and another couple with an unbelievable two week land and sea tour of Alaska. I must also mention a week in the Florida Keys, complete with swimming (not wading) with dolphins! It’s so wonderful to have every detail taken care of for you ahead of time and IF some problem should occur, you have someone to attend to it on your behalf.
I know this is getting long-winded, but I could not close without saying that it was Ashley who made it possible for us to do something we had dreamed of for years but were certain would never become a reality. We said it jokingly in passing when planning a trip to St. Lucia and in fact Ashley was able to make a viable suggestion to accommodate this dream. I literally cried when we arrived at this destination. We will be forever grateful, not only for that, but for all of her hard work to make sure every aspect of our travel and treasured vacations are perfect!
