Testimonials

Janet,
 
I just had to let you know that the San Antonio Trip was FANTASTIC!!!
 
This was my first time traveling with your group and you made everyone feel right at home.
 
Janet, you are the best trip organizer ever. I can't wait to share this experience with others and travel with you again.
 
Thanks Again,

Janet,

The trip in January 2016 to Brazil and Argentina was one of the best trips I have ever taken. From the moment we arrived in Rio de Janeiro, until we boarded the plane to come home in Buenos Aires.... everything was magical. The hotels that we had throughout the trip were top notch....the food was amazing....and our tour guide Pablo was second to none!

Seeing Iguazu Falls was breathtaking and brought tears to my eyes! The Tango show and Tango dancing in Buenos Aires was the best ever.  Seeing Christ the Redeemer and walking the Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro were moving, awe-inspiring experiences.

I have traveled all over the world, and this trip that Janet Blair organized was truly amazing! I will definitely join her travel group again and again!

Thank you for hosting such a fabulous trip Janet, and I look forward to traveling with you and your group again soon!

Thank you,

Suzy Brecht, Dance Instructor
 

Dear Janet,
 
I want to thank you for organizing such a wonderful trip to Vietnam. I absolutely loved the entire experience. Our Tour Manager, Thang, was so warm, friendly and caring. He had a delightful sense of humor and was so knowledgable and willing to share the history and culture of his people.
 
I loved the food and I found everything very affordable. I took advantage of all of the Optional Tours offered and found them to be a tremendous value....once-in-a-lifetime experiences for very little money. In particular, the cyclo ride through the streets on our way to a fabulous dinner at the family-owned restaurant, whose ancestors descended from an ancient Imperial family, was so very special and unique.
 
I have enjoyed all the trips I have gone on with you, and I look forward to the next ones.
 
Thank you again for everything you do to make these trips so fantastic.

Sincerely,
 
Kathy Herrnberger


Thank you Janet for planning such a great trip to Nashville. Staying at the Gaylord Opryland Resort was amazing. Such a beautiful resort with lush gardens and waterfalls. Each show we saw was very entertaining and showcased the amazing musical talent in and around Nashville. The guided tours you arranged were very informative and gave everyone a closer look at life in and around Nashville over the years. We hit all of the Nashville highlights on this trip including a tour of the Belle Meade Plantation. Your attention to detail when planning your trips is excellent. You strive to ensure everyone has a great time and that is very much appreciated. Looking forward to the next trip!

What a fabulous trip to Montreal and Quebec City! I can truthfully share that I was apprehensive about being on a bus for a length of time with others I did not know but can honestly say it was a great experience. The bus driver (Magic Mark) was professional yet humorous. His ability to maneuver through the small streets of the cities was noteworthy and his humor kept us all interactive during the entire trip. At each stop, he was there at the bottom of the step to take your hand assuring you did not fall. There were sufficient stops along the way to accommodate those of us that needed to use the facilities or get a bite to eat.

Our tour guide was top notch!!!!! It was intriguing to know that an American actually moved to Quebec to be a tour guide and was so well versed that he actually taught other guides who live in the city. Neal's knowledge far surpassed anything I expected and his patience with questions and concerns were genuine.

Janet...what can I say? This was the first time I had met her and been on one of her trips and was so satisfied that I plan to engage in another adventure with her in the future. Janet is a perfect hostess. Not only did she make sure we were all having a good time but was diligent about all of the stops, accommodations and sites being flawless experiences. The warm professionalism that Janet shared was a true testament to why so many passengers on the trip were frequent travelers with the organization.

I have brought back not only multiple pictures but fantastic memories and new friendships that I am already experiencing.

Thank you for the opportunity to explore!

Janet,
 

Thank you for planning a very memorable trip to Italy! The trip was well organized with an itinerary filled with interesting places to visit and fun activities. I appreciated the professional tour guides providing volumes of information, history, and interesting stories throughout the tour. I really enjoy traveling with your group. Each trip I meet interesting people and form new friendships that last long after the trip. Thank you for all you do to make these trips available to single travelers. I look forward to more travel adventures with Successfully Single in the future.

Hi Janet!
 

Thank you so much for planning our Aruba "Get Away"! Your choice of the Holiday Inn was perfect! The resort and grounds were beautiful. I loved the courtyard and one of my favorite pleasures was laying in the hammock, while the stresses from back home floated away!
 
Your idea for an all inclusive breakfast and drinks was the best. The breakfast bar was fantastic! The Holiday Inn location was ideal because we had so many choices of nearby restaurants and shops after spending the day in the sand.
 
I appreciate all your efforts to plan the trip. Aruba was a great choice and a wonderful getaway from this winter weather!  I had a lot of fun!
 
With appreciation,
 
Joy Lewis

 
Janet:

Thanks so much for arranging this group trip to Aruba. I had a wonderful time. There are so many things to do in Aruba.....swimming, snorkeling, variety of water sports, sunset cruises, fabulous outdoor dinners at so many restaurants, walking the pristine white sand beaches, casinos in every hotel within walking distance, and of course dancing at a variety of venues. Shopping downtown was convenient using the city bus which ran every 20 minutes.

A few of us took a day trip to Baby Beach which is at the South end of the island. Along the way we stopped at several interesting vantage points and took pictures plus a restaurant stop which was built over the water.

Walking the beaches was one of my favorite things to do. The water was warm with a variety of blue shades. The air was 80+ degrees with trade winds making it very comfortable.

The hotel rooms were excellent. The open bar was a nice perk. Overall a great vacation. Thank you for all your efforts!

Hi Janet,

I just wanted to personally thank you for coordinating our trip to Aruba. I had a great time and met some great people. The Holiday Inn Resort was perfect and met all of my expectations. They were very accommodating and friendly. The hotel was very clean and well managed. I would definitely return and stay there again.

Even though our trip got off to a rocky start with our flight being canceled, I think most of us made the best of that first 24 hours. I met some great people, had lots of laughs and will always have great memories of my first trip to Aruba.

Thanks again for planning this trip and all of your efforts to satisfy the group.

Janet,

Thank you from the bottom of my New Zealand heart for a journey down under into a new earth.

The Kiwi people were consistently warm, friendly and peaceful - No Worries - and your remarkable gifts of an ideal itinerary from north to south islands, affordable sights for one fifth the cost of other companies, and insightful roommate matching created a sacred space for a string of magical moments.

Days gathered momentum from extraordinary to miraculous, your bright eyed loving recommendations gave me confidence and freedom to step beyond who I was when I left. My passion for indigenous wisdom was nourished, accompanied by food for body and soul of exceptional quality.

Some tour guides show you a land, culture and people. Your guidance opened me to my greater self though Hobbiton tours, Abel Tasman visioning on the beach, Milford Sound waterfalls that stepped heaven onto earth, and New Years eve in Wellington with fireworks on the harbor.

I travel often, and this trip gave me more value, richness and expansiveness than I have ever experienced previously. Your skill, kindness and persistent commitment to exceptional service are a gift to the travel community.

May you be richly rewarded in return as you continue to give.

Gratefully,

Ellen Waara

New Zealand was for me the trip of a lifetime! Janet you are an awesome tour guide...picking the greatest attractions, the best restaurants with amazing food choices and atmospheres beyond words! It was such a pleasure touring New Zealand with you and your group (which I call my new family). Can't wait for the next trip! Thanks for the memories!

Three boats, three trains, and numerous luxury buses transported our tour group during 16 adventurous days in a country that is probably the cleanest and friendliest on our planet – New Zealand. Knowledgeable sea captains, locomotive engineers, and coach drivers described the history of the Kiwi seas, frontiers, towns, and historical personalities as we plowed the ocean blue in brilliant sunshine (and a short rain storm one day), and were driven through beautiful rolling and mountainous scenery. No matter the direction you looked on land, you saw small villages and cities surrounded by massive green pastures of grazing sheep, cow, and deer. When on the sea and ocean you saw mountains rise out of the deep waters into pristine blue sky.

From the North Island to the South Island, our group traveled through countless tree-covered green valleys and mountain passes. We saw majestic views from cliff-side highways, and looked down upon glacier-fed rivers careening rapidly into serene finger-shaped lakes. And we waited patiently at numerous single-lane bridges so to cross in old world fashion. We even passed through a one-lane mountain tunnel.

We wandered bustling cities of modern and mid-19th Century architecture, and strolled their ocean harbors, unique museums, and botanical gardens. We walked the dirt pathways of the famed Hobbiton movie set constructed within a deep rolling pasture, and visited an historic Maori village where we witnessed an ancestral song and dance performance, then took part in a tribal Hangi feast. We rode cable cars and gondolas and Range Rovers into the mountains, while spending our nights at clean, safe and economical accommodations, youth hostels, conveniently located in many New Zealand cities and towns.

I thoroughly enjoyed New Zealand. Its scenery was spectacular. Its people, offspring of the original Maori explorers and later-arriving European settlers, were friendly and helpful. And it was commonplace for Kiwis to ask: “How do you like our country?” and “How have you been treated?” New Zealanders wanted you to enjoy their remote bit of paradise down under.

I would definitely return to New Zealand, to revisit some of what I experienced, but more so, to explore that which I did not have time to see.

Janet Blair did a fine job of planning an event-packed trip that offered numerous optional tours and different events daily, which included free time for us to explore towns and their surrounding locales. I believe Janet’s previous five visits to New Zealand made it possible for her to organize such a trip – and Janet did save the best scenery and towns for last. If anyone is interested in visiting New Zealand, I would advise researching it first, as I had, then contacting Janet Blair with questions about her leading another trip to the island nation of the Kiwi. Kia Ora!

Dear Janet,

I want to compliment you on your expertise in travel. I have been on 4 trips with your group and am looking forward to my fifth trip - The Born Free: South Africa and Wildlife Safari Experience from September 6-17, 2014.

My first experience traveling with your group was the The Fall Color Cruise from New York to Nova Scotia in October, 2011.  Not only was the shoreline color beautiful but I learned where the "Bay of Fundy" is located and the significance of that and the original "Rum Cakes" to our American history.

Next, I experienced the thrill of the Thailand trip in November, 2012. I really loved seeing the Buddha temples, city of Bangkok and the lush tropical terrain. I enjoyed the wildlife, riding the elephant at the Maesa Elephant Camp and petting the full-size tiger and tiger cubs at the Tiger Kingdom in Chiangmai.

I was a little leery of going on the Russian River Cruise in July 2013, but the Russians were so nice and wanted us to learn their language. The ballet in St. Petersburg and the dancers and acrobats in Moscow were like I've never seen. The cruise along the Volga River and it's tributaries was a great way to see this country. The elegant ship had delicious food, musicians, singers, dancers and wonderful accommodations. Not to mention the experience of walking the grounds and seeing the Kremlin, churches, museums and other buildings in Moscow.

We have just returned from Panama. I was surprised to learn this year is the 100th anniversary of the Panama Canal. I enjoyed the boat trip through the canal, a rich part of our history and one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World. What a relaxing week and you ordered such beautiful weather! In the 80's every day - a wonderful escape from the frigid winter we have had this year.

Thank you, Janet!  Your trips help fulfill my dream of traveling to different places of the world. I am grateful for all you do in choosing, planning, organizing and managing these excursions. You put in a lot of time and effort and I don't have to worry about myself. You can count on my participation on your future planned trips.
