#TRAVEL Testimonials

My daughter, Kim, wanted a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic specifically in Punta Cana. We had approached someone at the annual Wedding Show who was advertising destination weddings and left our name with her. She contacted us once and we explained what we were looking for and we never heard from her again.  I then contacted Christine Ward (Christine-GreatEscapesmymts.net or 204-885-7261) and within a couple of days she sent us a number of suggestions and set a date to meet with Kim, and her fiancé, Jim, to discuss the wedding. Christine co-ordinated the whole trip for us. She sent information packages to everyone who was interested in attending. She booked the flights and resort for 36 of us. Some of the guests went for one week but most went for two weeks.  Although the ultimate choice of where we stayed was Kim and Jim's, Christine took the worry away. She did everything for us and the trip was wonderful. The accommodations were beautiful, the group flew together and stayed together in the same area of the resort. I would, and have, suggested Christine Ward, as the premiere travel agent for any type of travel. She takes the time to make your travel experience a wonderful one.

Christine, you are so passionate and enthusiatic about your travels that you love to share with others and you get them excited for their own personal journeys. You not only create an image for your clients before their departure, but you also offer extras and things to know while at the destination and which in return, creates the special memories of the vacation afterwards.   You go above and beyond for everyone and are a true expert of what you do best!

I can't thank you enough Christine for all your hard work.   Our trip was amazing ! Everything went perfectly. The resort (Grand Sirenis) was beautiful. It was overwhelming at first because of its size but within a day we felt more comfortable! There was so much to do there and the landscaping and greenery was a beautiful touch that I haven't seen at other resorts before. The wedding went extremely smooth and everyone enjoyed themselves! West jet was fantastic! We especially loved the plus seating; thank you! You will definitely be hearing from us again!😊
