She actually answered the phone the very first time I called and then followed up my call with an email within a matter of minutes and then responded to all my emails very promptly. I really enjoyed planning my trip with Marci, and I really believe that we had a fabulous trip because of Marci's planning and guidance.Janet Mitchell
Marci was so attentive, helpful, knowledgeable, and nailed it on planning a perfect trip for us. If I were ever to meet her in person I would give her a big hug for a job well done. She was a big part of a seamless and memorable vacation.Suzanne Balestrieri
