Happy Honeymooners!

Fern and Daniel Mattos had a blast on their 7-day action packed honeymoon to Maui.
Here is what the newlyweds had to say:
This was our honeymoon trip and it was perfect! Maui is an absolutely beautiful place with lots to offer! It is great for families and for couples, especially if it is your honeymoon! We took surf lessons; snorkeled; went on a helicopter ride around the volcano and the rain forest; and had a beautiful luau! We stayed at The Westin and was able to book everything right at the hotel. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone! Our experience with Gateway Travel was excellent. Dianne was right on top of things and made everything easy for us!
We had a blast thanks to Gateway Travel and Dianne Baroff!

Melissa Ewart and Jon Babicka enjoyed a sun soaked multi-destination honeymoon beginning in Ibiza, Spain, stopping in Rome, and relaxing in the Greek Isles!

Laura and Rob Kremer ventured to Costa Rica for their week long honeymoon.

Here is what they had to say:
The picture below was taken at our last stop, in the Clouds wildlife reserve. We were feeding them pieces of fruit. This was definitely one of my favorite parts of the trip. We both agreed our number one excursion was the white water rafting followed by the zip line trip! The views were beautiful and the people were nice and hospitable. We were also both very surprised at how clean and environmentally responsible Costa Rica is. They pride themselves on using clean energy and actually have a negative carbon imprint (meaning they make up for pollution countries like us put in the world).

Happy Travelers!

49 members of the Cass Tech Class of '76 had an amazing and memorable 55th Birthday celebration sailing the Carribean aboard the Oasis of the Seas.

Rich and Gail Bazzy and Mark and Cheryl Chaveriat had a fantastic two week adventure exploring Spain visiting Seville, Granada, Madrid and Ronda.

Read Gail's testimonial-

Buenos tardes, Vivian!
We arrived home safely Friday evening from our adventures in Spain. Thank you so much for putting together such a wonderful itinerary, even Mark was wowed :) Spain exceeded my expectations, so rich in history and culture. All our tour guides were phenomenal, but Cristina in Madrid was exceptional. I am now listening to & enjoying the audiobook Don Quixote, at her recommendation. As you can see from the photo, Mark & Rich enjoyed the camel ride.
Best Regards, Gail

Richard and Deborah Gibbs and family took in the gorgeous Montana sky while on their vacation at the Resort at Paws Up.

Read more from Deborah-

"We enjoyed the entire experience- from the time they picked us up at the airport to the time they dropped us off- the staff did everything possible to make our experience enjoyable! Our accommodations and the food were great! Our activities ranged from horseback riding, river rafting and  hiking, to spending time at the lake house, having a girls afternoon at the spa and a chuck wagon dinner. We had three generations- and it was really a dream vacation!"

The Simich family had wonderful vacation in California on the Tauck Bridges Tour of the Northern California Pacific Coast- including the Redwoods, Yosemite, San Francisco and Monterey.

Here is what the family had to say:

"We would have never been able to include all those destinations and partake in the all tours and excursions that were organized so efficiently and well planned. And the bonus was being with other families with children, it was a great experience!"  

Mike and Julie Garavaglia sailed the Mediterranean from Monte Carlo to Barcelona on the Seabourn Quest. Here they are enjoying Monte Carlo by day and night. And, soaking in the gorgeous view in Eze at La Chevre D'Or.
