Customer Testimonials

Thank you

Ms. Loulu, I just wanted to thank you again for such an awesome trip back in February. I'm not sure if you know this or not, but because of that trip, I am sending this message to you from Israel today. After that life-altering trip, I researched more and more and applied, got accepted to the Rothberg International School at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I plan to be studying abroad here for a year; without you, that may have never happened. It is truly remarkable how one occurrence ignites a chain reaction, and I have you to largely thank for that. Best. Gibson

Amazing Honeymoon
Loulu is amazing. She helped us plan our dream honeymoon to three different countries in Europe. She always looked for options that would help to save us money on tours and trains. We totally overbooked. Wish we did not move around so much. And you told us that but we did not listen. We were exhausted by the time we got to Italy! She lived in Switzerland for a few years so she knew the area very well and that helped us plan the trip. The technology (app) she uses was a life saver for us. It had our entire itinerary on the app and it was easy to access where ever we were. Our luggage got lost and she was able to help us find it. If we had a question while we were on our trip we reached out to Loulu and she was right there helping us from the US. She was an advocate for us throughout our entire planning and during our trip. Super professional, organized and get's right back to you when you have a question no matter what part of the world you are in. I highly recommend Loulu!

The Most Dependable Agent Ever
Loulu is very personable, organized, and pro-active. We have gone on many, many trips with numerous travel agents. Loulu exceeds anyone we have ever worked with. She is our "go-to" person from now on. We had to cancel our South American cruise due to covid-19. She handled all the booking details - and then all the cancellation details with politeness, grace, and true concern for us, her clients.

Honeymoon made seamless, easy.
We were skeptical about using a travel agent, mostly for fear of things costing more and other preconceived notions. Loulu, however, was fantastic to work with. After a few phone calls, she prepared and tweaked an itinerary for our honeymoon. All flights, trains, transfers, hotels, and experiences: booked. She also made herself available when we were on the move (even with the time difference) to be sure nothing went awry. Our train times coincided with our hotel checkin times and all was thoughtfully done. We loved that Loulu had been (and lived) in Europe, which made her recommendations even more trusting. We would definitely use Loulu again and would recommend her to our family and friends. Her customer service is undoubtedly unmatched.
