    “I was going to call you to tell you about our trip. It was EPIC!”


    Melody from Journeys Near and Far planned our perfect, dream honeymoon. My fiance and I gave her the general idea that we wanted to go to Greece, and since we had never been there before, we didn’t have much more to offer. Melody gave us some great options and suggestions and was patient with us while we chose the spots we wanted to see. We loved all of her choices and found everything so wonderful and convenient!  Both hotels in Greece seemed like the perfect location with the best views. We were so happy.

    She gave us reference and reading materials, website and photos of each area to help us make our decisions and then gave phenomenal recommendations for hotels.   We ended up staying in Athens and Santorini, and both hotels were in a perfect location for walking to transportation and sights, had amazing food and breathtaking views. Every day that we were in Greece my now husband and I commented on how much Melody helped us live our dream and create lifelong memories.   She stays in touch, follows up when she says she will and sent us beautiful cards of congratulations and well wishes and even sent a special gift before our trip.   I would recommend Journeys Near and Far for anyone planning their next trip.

    “I have never worked with a more professional, knowledgeable, responsive

    and friendly travel agent before.”


    I have never worked with a more professional, knowledgeable, responsive and friendly travel agent before. We knew we wanted to go to the South Pacific for our honeymoon and I did not want to try and create such a customized trip on my own, Melody went above and beyond her call of duty as a travel agent!

    Not only did she obtain us a great price, she got free honeymoon perks for us, made a bound guide of the area for us, and sent my husband a birthday card and me a sympathy card after the death of my grandma, but she got us an immediate refund when we had a small issue at a restaurant in Bora Bora and after my husband got really sick escalated the situation right away…I recommend her to all and would use her again in a heartbeat!
