"I was put in contact with Jane, who was wonderful, and planned our Italian vacation. My husband and I gave her an idea of the things we like doing and she did the rest. She kept us up to date on the planning process and we were able to give our input, but she took care of all the “stressful” things. Our vacation was so amazing that the day after we got home I asked her to start planning a return trip for next year. I am so thankful for Jane and everything she has done for us. I look forward to working with her for years to come."
"Tom did a great job getting the cruise I was looking for and for a great price. I moved to this area in 2019 and was looking for a good travel agent. I found it with Tom at MGA Travel."
"Just returned from a Europe Trip on Viking what a beautiful part of the world and a relaxing way to see it. This was a 15 day along the Rhine, Danube Rivers. From Holland's windmill to Germany's fairytale castles, from Danube Canal to the vineyards of Austria's Valley and then on to Budapest, Hungary what a wonderful experience. I have been on SOS cruise, Alaskan, Italy and now the great Viking Grand European River Boat Cruise with a fantastic Booking Agent and Tour Guide Michael Graham and his wife Kelly Graham. Our room on the ship was wonderful and the service was great. I want to say thank you Michael and Kelly you went out of your way to make sure everyone was enjoying their time and answering all questions, I also enjoyed the friendship of old and new friends I meet along the way. Getting ready for SOS at Sea III in October. I would like to thank all of your staff at Take The Trip you all did a excellent job."
"Michael Graham and his associates are wonderful. We have been on several cruises with them and have two booked. They take are of everything! All you have to do is just show up."
"Michael Graham and his staff especially Troy, helped make our 37th cruise as great as ever on the Celebrity Reflection. We have even booked the Celebrity Silhouette for Jan. 2020. I think this is the farthest out we have ever booked. Thanks so much for the extra perks including luggage tag holders and a nice all purpose travel container for our documents, etc. Loved the Ladies travel bag and extra's, too."
"My wife and I just returned from an amazing trip to Cuba. All details were masterfully arranged by MGA Travel. Can’t wait for our next trip! Thank you again."
"Had a wonderful Trip to Secrets Capri last week. Troy did great job with all the arrangements. We had a great room with a view! The resort was small and very quaint. Pool and pool Bar were loads of fun. Beach was lost 2 years ago in a storm so not much there. Fun was had by all! "
"Michael is not only the best travel planner on the South Carolina coast, but one of the best in the country, winning multiple awards. He and his staff will find the best vacation for you and your family, depending on your particular interests, and will find the best price as well. Their attention to detail is exceptional. "
"We are back from our vacation planned by Tom at MGA Travel. It was wonderful! The helicopter ride was perfect! I would do that again. We attended the GM's cocktail party which was smart because we won a prize. A private car ride back to the airport. The GM checked in with me almost daily for a report on our stay and activities. We happened to meet the Executive Chef who insisted on cooking lobster for us one night. Delish. Robbie climbed to the top of the Gros Peton while I went ziplining. Both were accelerating. Can't believe we did it. We went out on an all-day catamaran ride to the Soulfriere. We toured the botanical gardens and the volcano. Then went snorkeling. Perfect day. Sandals Grande St Lucian was very well run. And very clean. They are extremely cautious about COVID. All staff wore masks all the time. Most visitors did too. And we cleaned our hands constantly. Except for the excursions I mentioned, we really couldn't leave the compound. We could not visit the other Sandals resorts. Couldn't go downtown shopping. But the weather was perfect. The view was perfect. The room was perfect. The hospitality was perfect. The food and drinks were perfect. So not much to complain about. And the price is very reasonable. I would highly recommend Sandals and St Lucia. I'm sure we will be back and also visit other Sandals resorts. "
