What Our Traveler’s Have to Say

We love to hear what our traveler’s have to say
about their experience with Lake Shore Travel.


We had a phenomenal time! Thank you so much for all of your research and hard work and planning for making it perfect! Both legs of the trip were great. Financially, we were VERY happy with the all-inclusive trip. Once we got to the resort we realized how truly spoiled we had been.”

We have been thrilled with Terri’s help on so many of our family vacations and business trips! She always finds the most unique experiences for us, from the big horse show in Dublin to the classiest tango show in Buenos Aires. She plans fun surprises for our grown children, so I can only imagine what she concocts for younger travelers. We have been upgraded to some amazing accommodations, and we receive the VIP treatment at the hotels she finds for us. The security of knowing she is only a phone call away when you need help is priceless; she quickly has found us alternative transport and hotel rooms while our fellow travelers were standing in long lines. Terri delights in not only sharing her passion for travel, but in taking personal care of her clients.”

My family has been working with Joan Schwartz for almost 15 years. From my honeymoon in Bali, to my parent’s 50th anniversary aboard the QE2, to our family Disney World trips, to a couples “get away” in the South of France, Joan has consistently exceeded our expectations, she understands when you can spend, and when you are on a tight budget. She also makes certain that you and your loved ones are treated like royalty wherever you go.”

Myrna saved us $750 on an $1100 Flight. In an Internet world, we think we can find the best price, w/o travel agents. Maybe, but there’s a lot to be said for quality people and quality service. Myrna arranged our wonderful Hawaiian Vacation in February, 2009. That’s why we called her when we needed to rush our son from Marquette, MI to Chicago, IL for his grandmother’s funeral. Sure, I tried the Internet looking for the “best price”. And I thought flights from Marquette to Chicago had been canceled so I looked for flights from Escanaba and Green Bay to Chicago.
One call to Myrna and in 3 minutes she found a direct flight from Marquette, MI to Chicago, IL, round trip. But the price was $1100.
But Myrna is a travel pro and knew we could get a “bereavement special” from the airlines for our son to attend a funeral. I bet the reader of this didn’t know a “bereavement special” exists. You won’t find that on the Internet. So Myrna arranged an aisle seat for our 6’6″ tall son that takes only 2 hours to get from Marquette, MI to get to Chicago, IL, and back again. I won’t have to worry abut my son driving 100, 200, or 400 miles to get home for a funeral in bad weather.”

We had a wonderful trip. A real life experience. This trip rates up there as one of our favorites. Everyday was a highlight and exciting. The accommodations at every stop were first class. The food was excellent. We ate mostly at our hotels. Angkor Wat is the ultimate of all stops, our Cambodia guide was the best. Our guide in Saigon was also excellent.”
