This past August, my 60th birthday present from my daughter was a trip to Ocho Rios, Jamaica.  Valerie of Essential Coordination handled every wonderful detail.  The trip was amazing and full of surprises from beginning to end.  I had an awesome room at Beaches Resort.  The incredible staff sang “Happy Birthday” at almost every meal.  My adventure culminated in an unbelievable candle light dinner on the beach, but most awesome of all; four of my friends showed up and I didn’t know they were coming!

Valerie IS the best and I can’t imagine using anyone else for my travel needs.  I can’t wait for the next trip!

Thank you for booking a fabulous "Girls Trip" to Ocho Rios, Jamaica in August 2015! Your attention to details for eight different and demanding women was simply perfection. We loved the all-inclusive Beaches Resort by Sandals. Everything you told us about the resort was absolutely correct. Our accommodations were beautiful and the staff was so attentive. Thank you for providing the pre-trip tips on what to bring, what to expect in Jamaica, and recommended excursions. This information was extremely helpful in making our vacation pleasant, enjoyable and one to remember. 

I look forward to booking a family trip as well as another Girls Trip in 2016 with you and your travel agency. And I will be sure to tell all my friends and families to book with Essential Coordination & Travel!

I have used Valerie for several things organizing trips and helping to organize get together that I've had. She helped to keep me calm as I planned my wedding. She graciously took on the activities for wedding week and made sure all of my out of town guests (which was 90% of them) got here. I told her what I wanted for my bachelorette party and for my bridal party/mini spa day. She went above and beyond with the decorations, getting a party bus for me. During our spa day we had mimosas, fruit, muffins. It was beautiful. Some of my guests had her to coordinate their extended vacation after the wedding. I trust Valerie completely and I refer her to anybody that will listen. I wouldn't dare think of using anybody but her.

I'm honored to write this brief testimony on behalf of Valerie Anderson. It gives me great pleasure to share my positive experiences. While getting this type of feedback can make you feel great, it can have an even more powerful effect on one's business. Valerie has definitely reinforced what exceptional service really is. I've never retained the services of a travel agent before, and now I know it's the only way to go. Valerie truly exceeded my expectations.  Her knowledge, expertise, attitude and professionalism were key elements in making my Jamaica trip the best vacation ever. I'm looking forward to future trip planning with Valerie.
