Testimonials

Viking River Cruise, Douro River, Portugal…

Melody was a great help in booking my Viking River cruise and she definitely goes above and beyond!

Melody’s communication skills are impeccable!  Her responses to any questions or concerns were immediate. She was attentive to all details of my trip. She ensured that enough information was provided in preparation for my trip either via phone or emails.

Also what I really liked is the fact that Melody took the time to sit with me after I returned home to inquire if there were any issues and how I enjoyed the vacation.

I highly recommend Journeys Near and Far to anyone for their vacation needs!!

Honeymoon at Sandals Grande St. Lucian, St. Lucia…

Aj and I can’t say enough good things about Journeys Near and Far! Melody is amazing! We used her services for our honeymoon and will definitely be using her again in the future!

We traveled to St Lucia.  Any questions that we had Melody responded to very quickly, and even if she didn’t know the answer, she took the initiative to find the answer for us.

From setting up our butlers to helping us pick excursions and activities, Melody was super knowledgeable about the resort and what it had to offer us to make it special.

She even helped us with airport hotel stays and parking areas to leave our car for the week. She made it super simple for us.

We definitely recommend Journeys Near and Far for your travels.  Whether it be a honeymoon or anniversary you won’t be disappointed with her services!

Honeymoon in Maui, Hawaii…

We had an amazing time! Words cannot express this experience from our wedding day up until the day we left Hawaii to come back home. It was perfect.  Melody’s service was impeccable, her attention to detail was microscopic, and her dedication to make us happy was the best.

Melody was fantastic to work with. Her service was the best I’ve ever experienced. She helped to make our honeymoon magical and unforgettable.

We humbly and graciously thank you for making our honeymoon trip to Hawaii happen and come to life like we never would have expected.

Honeymoon in Costa Rica…

I had met Melody Moser at a bridal show two years before my husband and I were to get married and remembered her friendly and professional demeanor when it was time to book our honeymoon.

Not only did Melody respond quickly to any emails or phone calls, but she made sure all of our questions were answered—even if she had to do extra research.  

As clients, Melody sure made us feel important with the best wishes/holiday cards she sent us during our engagement. Our trip to Costa Rica was amazing, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Besides the fact that I was nervous about traveling, the honeymoon was the only aspect of the wedding I did not feel stressed about and that was all because of Melody.

Honeymoon at the Majestic Colonial, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic…

Our honeymoon was amazing, there are truly no words to describe how Punta Cana was!

We loved the The Majestic Colonial and the privacy we were able to have while on our porch, in the pool, at the cabanas, and how we were able to walk right off of our little garden into the pool.

Melody was awesome with helping us plan our Honeymoon. We told her what we wanted and our budget and she worked magic. Beyond Grateful.

Your services surpassed our expectations.  We were so prepared for this trip with our information, having our documents, not having to buy the $10 travel card there was a major plus as well.

Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us.

Honeymoon in Athens and Santorini, Greece…

Melody from Journeys Near and Far planned our perfect, dream honeymoon. 

Our trip was EPIC!

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.

Honeymoon in Moorea and Bora Bora, French Polynesia…

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!

Kathy at Lake Tahoe

Adventure traveler to Bhutan, US National Parks and Arizona…

Melody Moser has been my Travel Consultant for a number of years. Thanks to her help and expertise, I’ve enjoyed some fun trips from start to finish.

Recently she booked a hotel for me and it exceeded my expectations for comfort and value, while staying within my price range.

Another fun bonus of working with Melody is her researching and emailing terrific travel guides chock full of info about my destination: its history, where to go, what to do, restaurants, etc. I’d highly recommend Melody with Journeys Near and Far. She will carefully listen to your travel hopes and dreams and expertly guide you on your way!

Viking River Cruise, Rhine River, Germany…

As a solo traveler I have specific concerns and details that are a priority for me, therefore I usually take care of my own travel planning. Melody was a wonderful surprise, and working with her from beginning to end was an absolute pleasure!

Extremely knowledgeable, personable and attentive she listened to all of my requirements & desires and made them happen. I was so impressed with her attention to detail!

My trip (Viking River Cruise) was scheduled a full 18 mos. before my planned departure. That’s a pretty long time to wait for a trip! Throughout my wait Melody surprised me with goodies that fed my excitement for the trip, such as a German translation card, a travel book and research tidbits about each of the cities that I would visit. Journeys Near and Far provides an exclusive and wonderful planning experience, that I would highly recommend to all of my fellow travelers!
